Aniplex’s Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba first started running last year. It’s the story of Tanjiro, a young man who has aspirations of being a Demon Slayer…an occupation that gets a lot of business in his neck of the woods. Demons are lurking everywhere, and they’re hungry for humans. It turns out, though, that Tanjiro has to grow up quicker than he figured he would, as he returns home one day to find his entire family done in by demons.
Only his sister survived, and having been bit by a demon, she’s turned half-demon herself. These monsters picked the wrong house this time…if they had trouble dealing with Tanjiro now, wait’ll they ruin into him while he’s on his quest for revenge! Currently, Demomn Slayer is 26 episodes long, and while the dub version has been running on Toonami for some time, it hasn’t been available to stream until now.
Funimation has now made all the English dubbed episodes of Demon Slayer available on its streaming service. The episodes come on the heels of a larger announcement that Demon Slayer is headed to theaters with its first motion picture, Demon Slayer Kimetsu no Yaiba The Movie: Mugen Train. Following the events of the series, Tanjiro, Nezuko, Inosuke, and Zenitsu are riding a train when they discover a demon is on board and after the passengers. They’ll have help from Rengoku, the Flame Hashira, but it’s ultimately up to them to make it through the journey alive.
Demon Slayer Kimetsu no Yaiba The Movie: Mugen Train will be out in early 2021. Both subbed and dubbed versions of the Demon Slayer series are watchable now on Funimation.
