The latest Demon Slayer: To The Hashira Training movie has finally hit the international theatres – but what is it about?

Demon Slayer is a popular anime series based on the manga of the same name. The story is set in a world where demons and demon slayers constantly fight each other. Tanjiro’s family becomes victims of those man-eating demons, and everyone is slaughtered except for his sister Nezuko, who is turned into a demon.

Upon meeting a mysterious swordsman, Tanjiro swears to become a demon slayer and find a cure for his sister. From then on, he trains relentlessly and gradually becomes a powerful slayer while keeping his sister safe.

Demon Slayer: To The Hashira Training is the latest addition to the franchise, which premiered in over 140 countries. Delve deeper to find out more about the story and what it’s all about.

What happens in the Demon Slayer: To The Hashira Training movie?

Before the highly-anticipated season arrives in April 2024, the franchise released a special movie to promote it. The upcoming season will adapt the fan-favorite Hashira Training arc from the manga. While the series is still a few months away, fans can watch the first episode in the theatres.

Within the two hours of screen time, the movie first shows the finale of the Swordsmith Village Arc, which was a one-hour special. Then, in the Hashira Training arc, we see some non-manga scenes along with the adaptation of Chapters 128, 129, the first half of 130, and the second half of 131.

The Hashira Training arc only runs from Chapters 128 to 136 in the manga, which isn’t enough to make an entire series. Hence, because the material is lacking, the franchise will adapt scenes from the light novel. It will be an entirely new experience, even for manga fans.

Is the Demon Slayer movie worth watching?
