Demon Slayer Infinity Castle Arc Movies Come on the Back of Mugen Train Success.

The decision to adapt the climax of the Demon Slayer anime into movies comes on the back of the success of the Mugen Train film in 2020, which went on to gross over $507 million at the Global Box Office, becoming the Highest-Grossing Japanese Film of All Time.


The film even broke records for DVD and Blu-ray sales as it became the Third Best-Selling Anime Film on Home Media, only behind Ghibli’s Spirited Away and Totoro, selling over 1.67 million copies.

The Demon Slayer manga and anime are both a cultural phenomenon in Japan, and it really shows in both the medium’s commercial performances. In February 2019, before the premiere of the anime, the manga series had over 3.5 million copies in circulation, and by February 2021, a few months after the Japan release of the Mugen Train feature film, the manga series had already crossed over an insane 150 million copies in circulation.

The viewership on Traditional TV for the anime also remains hugely impressive. Demon Slayer Season 4, which premiered last month, achieved a mighty viewership of 14.7 million with its first episode, scoring an individual rating of 11.7% in Japan with Live and 7 Days of DVR Viewing.

The anime was also the Second Most-Watched TV Show in Japan during the week of its premiere, which is no small feat for an anime.

While much is not yet known about the big-screen adaptations for the finale of Demon Slayer, fans have gotten plenty of taste of the hit Shonen Jump anime on the big screens with both Swordsmith Village Arc and Hashira Training Arc’s Special Premiere Movies Grossing Over $60 million globally. And if the fans have shown this level of excitement for the premiere movies, the hype and craze for its most spectacular and action-packed arc is probably something we can’t fathom just yet.

This decision marks a departure from the traditional television format that fans have grown accustomed to, but the kind of work Ufotable has delivered with the animation and the production of the series is just absolutely next level and is something that fans should get to experience on the big screen, and thankfully they will.

Known for its stunning animation, emotionally resonant storytelling, and compelling characters, “Demon Slayer” has captivated audiences worldwide since its premiere. The decision to adapt the climactic “Infinity Castle Arc” as a trilogy of movies suggests a commitment to delivering a fitting conclusion that matches the epic scale and intensity of the series.
