"Demon Slayer: Mugen Train," also known as "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train," has managed to cement itself as a huge box-office success worldwide.

The 2020 anime film debuted during the autumn season in Japan and immediately broke records in its homeland.

As Variety reported, by December of last year, "Demon Slayer: Mugen Train" had become the biggest box-office hit for the country. In fact, it beat out the previous record-holder which was Hayao Miyazaki's 2001 animated movie "Spirited Away." Via Indie Wire, the film made around $350 million at the Japanese box office.

It appears that "Demon Slayer: Mugen Train" was also set to repeat some box office success in U.S. theaters as well. 

According to The Hollywood Reporter,  the movie debuted in late April with $21 million at the U.S. box office, making it the biggest U.S. debut of all time for a foreign language film.

This is amazing considering that "Demon Slayer: Mugen Train" may have required its audience to already be steep in its lore since the movie is a direct sequel to the first season of the anime series.

Despite the records the movie has made at theaters, there are many of us who are left wondering when we'll be able to enjoy it in the comfort of our homes, especially as we continue to wait for Season 2. Fortunately, the anime film's digital release isn't too far off.

Following the events of "Demon Slayer Kimetsu no Yaiba" Season 1, "Demon Slayer: Mugen Train" follows siblings Tanjiro Kamado and Nezuko Kamado with fellow demon slayers Zenitsu Agatsuma, Inosuke Hashibira, and Kyojuro Rengoku.
