“Demon Slayer: KIMETSU NO YAIBA” is screening specially in 418 Japanese theaters starting February 3. This is a promotion for the anime broadcast of “Swordsmith Village Arc” that will begin in April. A world tour is underway in more than 80 countries and territories.
You can see at the theater all together the final two episodes of “Entertainment District Arc,” already released in December 2021, and the first episode (advance screening) of “Swordsmith Village Arc,” scheduled to be broadcast in April. The duration is 1 hour and 50 minutes. The film will be screened worldwide with English subtitles and dubbing after March 2023.
The tweet about the manga on which the film is based is a hot topic. According to this, KIMETSU NO YAIBA extended the life of paper manga by 10 years. Teenagers who usually watch YouTube and TickTock are finding it increasingly difficult to read manga. They can no longer understand the order of the frames in a comic or imagine in their minds the composition depicted in a picture in three dimensions. They picked up a paper comic of this work and learned “how to read manga.”
This manga concluded in May 2020. But the frenzy has yet to die down!
