Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba -To the Hashira Training Heads To Cinemas Worldwide

What is the biggest anime and manga of the 21st century? With record breaking sales and a box-office record setting feature behind it, there's certainly a case to be made for Demon Slayer Kimetsu No Yaiba. Ahead of the new season of the anime Crunchyroll and Aniplex have announced that the franchise will be returning to the big screen for limited event screenings worldwide.

Following last year's successful event screening Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba -To the Hashira Training will bring Tanjiro and the Demon Slayer Corps to cinemas for a special experience fans won't want to miss.

The screening will allow fans to revisit the climax of last year's Swordsmith Village arc and will give them a first chance to see the first episode of the highly anticipated Hashira Training Arc before it streams on Crunchyroll later this year. This will mark the first time fans can see the finale of the Swordsmith Village arc in cinemas, and their first chance to get a sneak peek at the upcoming season.

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba -To the Hashira Training will be distributed in North American theatres including IMAX and premium large formats from February 23 from Aniplex Of America, Crunchyroll and Sony Pictures Entertainment.
