All the die-heart Demon Slayer fans understand the hype well enough. But if you are a newcomer to this fanbase, here is everything that you need to know about Demon Slayer Mugen Train.
Demon Slayer Mugen Train: Plot Details
Mugen Train is not a stand-alone Demon Slayer movie. It is a direct follow-up of the events that took place in the debut season of Demon Slayer. The plot of the film revolves around the chaos that takes place within a moving train. A moving vehicle trope is a classic plot device. Even though it has been overused so many times, it still works.
The protagonist Tanjiro and his team are onboard the Infinity Train. In the moving vehicle, they encounter a series of dangers that they had never seen before. On the train, we are introduced to a new character called Kyojuro Rengoku. The team wishes to learn further information about demons from Rengoku. However, the team is not aware that what they are about to face is more dangerous than they could ever imagine.
We are then introduced to the ultimate antagonist, Enmu. He is the demon that Rengoku has been focusing on. Enmu is a member of the Twelve Demon Moon whose only motive is to prove themselves to Muzan Kibutsuji. They can only prove this to the master by executing Tanjiro. Thus, the adventures of both the sides begin as their intents conflict. Mugen Train has some of the most chilling fighting sequences in recent times.
