Is expected in American theaters in a few months and while the French cinemas have to close again due to the Covid-19 crisis, Demon Slayer is driving: The Infinity train is driving a Japanese box office that does not know the crisis.
A historic success
The adventures of Tanjiro and his couple break all records in Japan. The anime from the manga series of the same name by Koyoharu Gotoge is, in fact, the fifth biggest hit in the history of the Japanese box office. The animated film competes with domestic box office giants such as Spirited Away, Frozen, Titanic, Your Name and the Tokyo Olympics. So could it possibly take into account Spirited Away’s historic Japanese box office record and its 23.5 million viewers? To have.

Judging by the current state of the Hollywood industry, which has been badly affected by the coronavirus crisis, it is not clear which film could slow Demon Slayer in its frenzied rush. The animated film actually passed the sales threshold of $ 200 million this Monday, November 9th, after four weeks of operation. An astronomical sum and a colossal success for a work that ended up being published in very few areas.
Keep in mind that Demon Slayer follows straight from the first season of the anime, which is available on Wakanim. Tanjirô’s group has completed their recovery training at the Butterfly Estate and is now getting on the infinity train, where forty people are missing. Tanjirô and Nezuko, accompanied by Zen’itsu and Inosuke, team up with one of the most powerful swordsmen of the Demon Slayer Army, the Pillar of the Flame Kyôjurô Rengoku.
For those who are tempted by the story, it is known that France and other European countries will have the right to release this Japanese hit in cinemas. While a release date has not yet been set, there is no doubt that manga fans will flock to theaters to see this animated film that is being talked about so much.
