Demon Slayer the Movie: Mugen Train Plot
The movie picks up where the first season of Demon Slayer ends. The whole movie sets up the groundwork for the second season of Demon Slayer. So if you miss out on the movie, you might be fuzzy on the details in the second season.
The storyline is set in Japan’s Taishō-era, where Tanjiro Kamado and his sister Nezuko Kamado goes off on a journey to cure Nezuko’s demon curse and avenge their lost family members.
Demons, are portrayed as despicable soulless creature who feeds on humans to acquire and indulge super-human powers. The Demon King, Muzan Kibutsuji, is the main antagonist of the series. He is responsible for the creation of most of the demons’ existence.
In the movie Mugen Train the Flame Hashira is sent on a mission to track down a demon who is responsible for killing passengers and demon slayers on a train.
Enmu, Lower Rank One of the Twelve Kizuki, is sent to kill Tanjiro Kamado as well as the other Demon Slayers to become an Upper Rank and receive even more blood from Muzan.
Shortly after boarding the infinity train, everyone is put into deep sleep by Enmu. While Enmu tries to put Tanjiro and the others into eternal sleep Nezuko tries to protect the passengers and wake the others up.
Eventually, Enmu’s plans get botched, and Tanjiro beheads Enmu but soon finds out that he has fused him with the train.
