After last week’s sequel film for the series “Demon Slayer” which has been running in Japan since 16 October 2020, it has since last week been considered the most financially successful film of all time in Japanese cinemas, today it has broken the record for the most visitors of all time.
Film Overtakes Ghibli Classic
With a total of 25.48 million tickets sold and a record of 34.6 billion yen (approximately 274.03 million euros), “Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Movie: Mugen Train” is now officially regarded as the movie with the most visitors in Japan. The previous record-holder, “Chihiro’s Journey to the Magic Land” has sold 24.28 million tickets to 31.68 billion yen.
If you want to see “Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Movie: Mugen Train” in this country, you have to wait until (at least) March 25, 2021. Publisher peppermint anime has already announced that the sequel will be released in German and Japanese – unless the COVID-19 pandemic makes a dent in the bill.
The accompanying 26-part anime series, which ran in Japan between April and September 2019, was also licensed by peppermint anime and is currently available on DVD and Blu-ray. The final fourth volume will go on sale on February 10, 2021.
