With a recent release here in North America, Demon Slayer Mugen Train has only continued breaking records and achieving monumental milestones in a day and age where anime and manga have reached immense new heights. Starting June 22nd, Demon Slayer fans can stream ‘Demon Slayer Mugen Train’ exclusively on Funimation in both the English dub and Japanese sub.
‘Demon Slayer Mugen Train earned over $475 million globally becoming the #1 film worldwide in 2020, the first-ever non-Hollywood film to achieve such a feat. The film released in North America on April 23 and ascended to #1 at the box office in only its second week of release, earning more than $48 million to date.
“Demon Slayer Mugen Train has been a runaway success since it opened last year, galvanizing fans and attracting a whole new generation to anime,” said Asa Suehira, Chief Content Officer for Funimation Global Group. “We know Funimation fans are eager to experience the electrifying story again, and we’re thrilled to add it to our service. With the addition of the movie, fans can take a deep dive into the franchise watching the first season of the television series, three special television episodes, and now the feature-length film from their homes or on the go. What a tremendous partnership with Aniplex of America, Shueisha, Ufotable, and, of course, our community of fans.”
