After a string of mysterious disappearances begin to plague a train, the Demon Slayer Corps' multiple attempts to remedy the problem prove fruitless. To prevent further casualties, the Flame Pillar, Kyoujurou Rengoku, takes it upon himself to eliminate the threat. Accompanying him are some of the Corps' most promising new blood: Tanjirou Kamado, Zenitsu Agatsuma, and Inosuke Hashibira, who all hope to witness the fiery feats of this model demon slayer firsthand.
Unbeknownst to them, the demonic forces responsible for the disappearances have already put their sinister plan in motion. Under this demonic presence, the group must muster every ounce of their willpower and draw their swords to save all two hundred passengers onboard. Kimetsu no Yaiba Movie: Mugen Ressha-hen delves into the deepest corners of Tanjirou's mind, putting his resolve and commitment to duty to the test.
Kimetsu no Yaiba Movie: Mugen Ressha-hen, or Demon Slayer: Infinity Train, is a direct continuation from the first season of the anime series ‘Kimetsu no Yaiba’. With Tanjiro, Nezuko, Zenitsu, and Inosuke already on-board the Infinity Train, their thrilling and dangerous adventure unfolds as they set out on a mission to help a top-ranking slayer, Rengoku, defeat a formidable demon.
The plot thickens within the eerie confinements of the Infinity Train. As the rag-tag team of slayers combats the dream-scheming demon, they begin to question the nature of freedom, justice, and their personal motivations. Man-eating monsters, the importance of familial bonds, and personal sacrifice are some of the motifs that run throughout enhancing this gripping saga.
