NYCC 2020 covers a lot of topics, with anime being only one of the many. This panel though specifically talks about one hit anime in particular: Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. Even more specifically, it’s about the upcoming Mugen Train anime movie, for which we now have a brand new trailer to see. And boy, is it a rollercoaster in more ways than one.

Oh, the onion ninjas have been at it again, haven’t they?

Well, to be fair, the trailer the Demon Slayer panel showed at the very end is not actually new. Aniplex uploaded that trailer to YouTube just over 2 months ago. It’s still the latest one posted so far, so if you’re someone who hasn’t watched it yet (like me), this would’ve still been a treat for you.

Demon Slayer: Train of Terror?

Sheldon would love this one.

Mostly, the NYCC 2020 panelists for this Demon Slayer panel talked about Demon Slayer in general. It’s nothing us fans of the anime weren’t already familiar with, so we can just skip ahead to when they talk about Mugen Train.

The entire Demon Slayer panel, for your enjoyment if you wish.

Apparently, the Mugen Train anime film will be more or less Inception: The Anime. From what the trailer depicts, it really does look like it. The demon somehow manages to trap everyone on the train into a dream. Judging from the fact that Tanjiro encountered his very much deceased siblings in his dream, it’s safe to say that each passenger has their own personalized dream tailor-made to trap them within it. Not sure exactly how this dream is supposed to kill its victims, but considering how bloody Demon Slayer can get, it’s likely not going to be pretty.


NYCC 2020 gave us a nice look at the latest trailer for Demon Slayer anime movie: Mugen Train. The panelists even revealed that they’ll be bringing the movie to US theaters in early 2021. No exact date, but that’s better than not knowing.

Oh, and be sure to check out that giveaway discussed om the panel. You apparently have to follow Funimation on Facebook and Twitter for more details, so check it out if you want a chance to win some sweet Demon Slayer merchandise.
