Kimetsu no Yaiba Movie Debuts in NY with Star’s Epic Cosplay


Anime fans, get ready for a treat! “Kimetsu no Yaiba,” also known as “Demon Slayer,” has been capturing hearts worldwide and is now going to dominate the big screens again. The sensational anime, which has been a global craze over the past five years, is gearing up for the release of its new movie, “Kimetsu no Yaiba-Heading to the Training of the Pillars.” Mark your calendars for February 22, 2024, because that’s when it’ll light up theaters in Spain.

As we eagerly await its worldwide debut, some fortunate attendees have already had the chance to catch an early showing, including this past weekend in New York. Among the crowd was an unexpected fan – Hollywood actor Channing Tatum. Channing, a big star as he is, showed his love for the series by rocking up to the premiere in a chill yet very on-theme outfit. He wore a hoodie that paid homage to Tanjiro Kamado, the series’ brave protagonist. His daughter, Everly, joined in on the fun too, adorably dressed as Shinobu Kocho, the Insect Pillar – a character we first met in season one and who’s set to have a significant role in the future episodes.

Created by the talented Koyoharo Gotouge, “Kimetsu no Yaiba” is renowned for its unique art style and top-tier animation quality that has raised the bar high for anime productions. Over the last several years, it’s not just been about the engaging storyline, but also about the visually stunning execution that many current animes strive to match.

The upcoming “Kimetsu no Yaiba” movie isn’t just any flick; it’s the bridge to the new season, mirroring what “Kimetsu no Yaiba: Heading to the Blacksmith Village” achieved by hitting the theaters weeks before season three. It’s the perfect solution for all the fans who can’t contain their excitement and yearn for a glimpse into the next chapter. Following the pattern of its predecessor, this film picks up right where season three left off, providing us a seamless transition and setting the stage for season four.

So, anime enthusiasts, keep your eyes peeled for this cinematic adventure that promises to continue the enthralling saga of Tanjiro and his companions. Whether you’re a diehard fan, a casual viewer, or maybe like Channing Tatum, you’re in for a visual feast that’ll leave you counting the days until the Demon Slayer’s next exhilarating journey.
