Episode 2: Deep Sleep

Demon Slayer 2 Episode 2: Bliss

In Demon Slayer Mugen Train Arc Episode 2, “Deep Sleep,” Tanjirou Kamado, Inosuke Hashibira, and Zenitsu Agatsuma boarded the Mugen train looking for the Hashira Kyoujurou Rengoku. There were only two problems. First, as the train got under way, Inosuke went wild with delight at the train’s speed. It was all Zenitsu could do to keep Inosuke from plastering his face to every window they passed. The second was that some random guy towards the front of the train kept shouting “Umai!” every few seconds. Tanjirou was shocked to find that Umai-man was actually the Hashira they were looking for! But then an exhausted-looking conductor punched their tickets, and everything started to go downhill from there.

himself from the dream in which he found himself trapped. But, if he had come to the wrong conclusion, the effects could be catastrophic — and lethal. But he can’t afford to delay.

Episode 5: Move Forward!

Demon Slayer Mugen Train Arc Episode 5 Review: Right On The Money

In Demon Slayer Mugen Train Arc Episode 5, “Move Forward!”, Enmu, having confided that the train had become his entire body to Tanjirou, launched an all-out attack on the 200 passengers. Enmu’s plan was to exhaust the Demon Slayers, including InosukeZenitsu, and even the Hashira Rengoku, then leisurely feast on them all. And based on Enmu’s regenerative abilities, the plan looked pretty solid. Can Tanjirou and friends, even with Nezuko’s help, protect the passengers? And if they solely do that, how will they confront and kill Enmu?

Demon Slayer Mugen Train Arc Episode 7: Until The End

In Demon Slayer Mugen Train Arc episode 7, “Set Your Heart Ablaze,” no matter what technique Kyoujurou Rengoku employs against Akaza, the demon regenerates almost instantly. At the same times, Rengoku’s wounds accumulate. Finally, one eye crushed and with innumerable other wounds, he stands before Akaza. The only thing keeping him alive seems to be the demon’s insistent attempts to convince Rengoku to become a demon. With Tanjirou incapacitated and Insokue frozen by the knowledge Akaza is well beyond him, does Rengoku stand any chance? Won’t Akaza just strike one more time to finish him?

  1. So… Stand back! Stupid question incoming! Be not amazed by my lack of thought… Anyway the Mugen Train arc… How much of it went into the movie? Yeah yeah the answer is probably right above me BUT surveys are calling. And it’s Sunday so it’s do it now or miss out. Anyway guess we will see what future arc will make up the second movie… As opposed to them actually making a 100% original movie like most franchises in the past… Ok nuff of my trademark low intelligence. Good work as always!

    1. Not stupid at all! It was something I wondered about before watching.

      It turns out that almost all of the movie became the Mugen Train Arc. The first episode was also almost entirely series-only, and I think they added a scene here and there.

      So the movie came first, and they adapted it into the series.

      I enjoyed the movie, but to be honest, the series added enough scenes that I preferred the series.

      It was an interesting approach! It allowed them to earn money from the movie, then earn more from the series fees (whatever those might be).

Please let me know what you think!
