Demon Slayer: Mugen Train is out of control when it comes to getting praises, awards, and ticket sales. Studio ufotable made an extremely good job with adapting the source material and we hope they will keep animating the anime adaptation of Demon Slayer until the end. Unfortunately, as of now, we don’t have any information on another film or TV anime being produced.
