    Natsuki Hanae (Voices: Tanjiro Kamado) | Comment

    “When I read the Mugen Train arc, I saw so many scenes I wanted to hurry up and voice act for, so I’m so happy that I get to perform for this film. All the other voice actors during the recording sessions were on fire. When it was over, I was so burnt out, I really thought I was gonna die. ufotable’s gorgeous animation and the beautiful music both come together wonderfully. It’s a really amazing film. Like the fans, I wanna watch it in the cinema already. I hope you’re looking forward to it just as much as I am!” (Translated from Japanese by MMN)

     

    Akari Kitō (Voices: Nezuko Kamado) | Comment

    “It had been a while since we’d done voice work for Demon Slayer, but getting to work on the Mugen Train arc, which is a popular one in the manga series, I psyched myself up like the rest of the cast! Despite us not having any visuals to work with for the recording sessions, everyone really put their all into it. Seeing that actually brought tears to my eyes. I think what we achieved by the end of it exceeded our expectations! I hope you all enjoy watching it in the cinema!” (Translated from Japanese by MMN)

     

    LiSA | Comment

    “I previously performed for the TV anime series, now I’m doing them main theme for the Mugen Train film arc. It’s personally my favourite arc from the manga, so I was able to add another layer of strength to the song. While the characters face sadness, they still have a fire lit in their hearts. I hope that all of you who may be sad have the strength to move forward just like them.” (Translated from Japanese by MMN)

    In the run up to its release, the film is being promoted in collaboration with Japan’s annual Tanabata festival which takes place every year on July 7. A special website opened today which features wishes written in Japanese and illustrations drawn by 31 voice actors and actresses from the anime series—as well as the main characters, including Tanjiro. It is customary on Tanabata to write a wish on tanzaku, which are small pieces of paper, and tie them to bamboo. Additionally, three special announcements have been made to celebrate Tanjiro’s birthday on July 14.

     

    The Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba manga has sold over 80 million copies. Along with its highly successful anime adaptation from last year, the series has won the anime community the world over, earning a high reputation for its thrilling fight scenes and memorable characters. The film was announced at the end of the anime’s final episode, teasing the “Mugen Train” arc of the story. Today, the day of Tanabata, marks just three months until the release of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train.


    As well as the voice cast, five of the anime’s main characters have posted their own wishes over on the special Tanabata website. Tanjiro, a kind and gentle soul who is devoted to family, wrote: “I pray that everyone can live happily!” Such a wish is just like Tanjiro, who shows kindness to everyone even if they’re a demon. His sister, Nezuko, who is a demon herself and who can’t write, instead just tied her tanzaku paper up. You can tell she puts all of her trust in Tanjiro with whom she has a strong bond. Zenitsu simply wrote, “I wish that I can get married!!!!” Inosuke drew a picture of his favourite food, tempura, and Rengoku wrote the mantra “Daily Diligence!!”

     

    You can check out the rest of the cast’s wishes over on the official Demon Slayer Tanabata website, all of which are written in Japanese.

     

    Finally, to celebrate Tanjiro’s birthday which falls on July 14, three special things have been planned in Japan.
