Demon Slayer: Mugen Train New Trailer Reveals Main Theme to be Performed by LiSA
A new poster and trailer have been released for the upcoming film Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train which is set for release on October 16, 2020. The trailer gives us a snippet of the main theme Homura (Flame) performed by LiSA. The singer-songwriter previously performed the TV anime’s first opening theme Gurenge.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train is a direct sequel to the 2019 anime series adapted from Koyoharu Gotouge’s manga series Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. It is being animated by ufotable.
The showcases the protagonist Tanjiro Kamado battling it off against Enmu aboard the Infinity Train (Mugen Train). Tanjiro is clenching his teeth while Enmu smiles on, revealing what is sure to be a testing battle for our hero.
Enmu threatens Tanjiro with the words, “To be able to die while dreaming… Just how lucky are you?” We also see Tanjiro reunite with his siblings, who are supposed to be dead, but he senses something amiss and encourages himself to wake up as he is being attacked. The Infinity Train will be an action-packed locale as Tanjiro and Enmu battle it out. We also see returning characters on the train with Tanjiro.
Fans also get to hear the main theme Homura by LiSA for the first time. The song was composed by Yuki Kajiura who also wrote the TV anime adaptation’s ending theme from the edge which is performed by FictionJunction feat. LiSA.
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)

LiSA & yama Appear in New Commercial For ZONe Energy Drink
In promotion of their new Ver.2.0.0 energy drink, which hit shelves in Japan last Tuesday, ZONe released a TV commercial featuring Japanese artists LiSA and yama. The new beverage, which is advertised as putting people in the zone of invincibility, contains the highest amount of caffeine put in a ZONe drink yet: 150mg of the stuff, which is sure to keep people buzzing throughout the day. The packaging has also been updated to feature the new ‘ZONe EYE’ which symbolises that you’re in the zone and nothing will stand in your way.
LiSA in the ZONe
Dive into the zone with LiSA who knocks back her drink and immediately takes on the ZONe EYE. She grabs her mic and belts out a hardcore performance, showing off her incredible voice, before winking at the camera.
yama in the ZONe
When yama chugs her can she says the words ‘Into the ZONe’ along with the futuristic-sounding voice. She is surrounded by a whirlpool of the energy drink which flows along to the sound of her gorgeous high-tone vocals. The track itself is titled Ketsuryu (‘Blood Flow’) and was written for this commercial.
・What did you think of the commercial and your appearance?
“For me, it was a live performance. Even I was surprised at the show of power that ZONe has [in the commercial] when it turns on your switch. I enjoyed it like a real live performance, since the part when I switch into that invincible zone was filmed just as I look in the video.”
・Tell us about the song RUNAWAY which features in your commercial.
“The song is about quitting while you’re ahead in life. It’s the start of a new era, heading into that invincible zone to laugh lots, sing, dance, and enjoy everything.”
・Tell us about the song Ketsuryu which features in your commercial
“ESME MORI kindly wrote this song for me. It’s a song that brings up the topic of being bored in life, and feeling lonely, but that you can still find someone special or something you can immerse yourself in to light up your life. It’s about keeping your heart moving even if those things disappear. I hope it encourages people, even if just a little.”
