Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba 3 points that caught my attention after watching the anime movie ‘Jougen Shuketsu~.’

The animation movie “Jegen gathering, and to the village of swordsmiths” of the famous work “Kimetsu no Yaiba” was released on the 3rd. In addition to the 10th and 11th episodes of the ‘Yukaku-hen’ broadcast on TV, the first episode of the ‘Swordsmith’s Village’ scheduled to be published in April will be shown in advance. I want to touch on three points that caught my attention.

“Kimetsu no Yaiba” is based on the manga by Koyoharu Gotoge, which was serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump (Shueisha) from 2016 to 2020. Tanjiro Kamado, who has become a “Demon Slayer Corps” to defeat demons that eat people, struggles to restore his sister, who has become a demon.

One of the characteristics of movies is that audiences and reactions to movies look real. The first thing that caught my attention was a large number of families. During the viewing, a boy who looked like an elementary school student asked, “What is 〇〇?” From Japanese-style dark fantasy content to a family-oriented movie? That said, there may be other opinions. However, as long as we can get along and have fun together, I think that’s fine.

Previously, I used big data to investigate the demographics that searched for “Kimetsu no Yaiba” on the Internet and found a slightly larger number of women and a wide range of people, regardless of age or gender, were caught. You can feel the high name recognition of “Kimetsu no Yaiba” in this anime movie. The content tends to get lower than the assumed age gradually, but “Kimetsu no Yaiba” may also have such a place.

The second is that the characters’ sexy scenes were also adequately drawn according to the original work. In recent years, consideration for the surroundings is required for depictions, so I had the possibility of changes and corrections in mind, but it was an unnecessary worry. I’m sorry to use phrases from other works, but I felt the love, commitment, and determination for the job, “Don’t retreat! Kobinu! Reflection!” Come to think of it, Aniplex, one of the companies working on the anime, has a history of fighting over freedom of expression over the revision of the Tokyo Metropolitan Ordinance for Healthy Youth Development. I remembered that.

“Swordsmith’s Village Edition” will be broadcast on TV in April, so there is a possibility that it will be pointed out and criticized from the outside, but I would like you to do your best. Finally, there are still depictions that gouge the essence. I’ve seen the original manga, and I’ve already watched the anime “Yukaku-hen,” so even though the story is broken, it can shake the viewers’ emotions. Naturally, some people must have been moved by seeing Rengoku-san at the climax of the “Infinite Train Arc,” but I was reminded of how amazing it was.

Even if you don’t see the anime movie this time, you can watch the “Swordsmith’s Village Edition” broadcast from April, and the story will connect without any problems, but I would like you to feel the reaction of the live audience. In the comedy scene, laughter leaked out from the audience. Many people grinned at the exchange.

When I finished watching the movie, it was the impression that “Are you finished?” I was so passionate about it.

This anime will have a world tour worldwide, and the stage greetings in Los Angeles will be broadcast live. I am also looking forward to the reaction overseas.

And in layman’s terms, I’m also curious about the box office revenue of anime movies. If this initiative is successful, it seems likely to be used as a model in terms of promotion and efficient use of content.
