The Japanese portal Mantan Web reported that the film adaptation of Koyoharu Gotouge's manga, Kimetsu no Yaiba, titled Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mugen Ressha-hen, has exceeded 35.7 billion yen in accumulated earnings and 26.21 million tickets sold since its premiere in Japan.
The film surpassed 32.4 billion yen 73 days after its premiere in Japan on October 16. At the time, the fact that it had surpassed the accumulated gross of the film directed by Hayao Miyazaki and produced by Studio Ghibli, Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi (Spirited Away), established at 31.68 billion, became a topic of discussion yen. Thus, this film became the highest grossing in the history of Japanese cinema.
The feature film opened in Japanese theaters on October 16 in Japan and is a direct sequel to the events of the anime, adapting the "Infinity Train Arc" from the original manga. To date, no release date for the Blu-ray / DVD version has been indicated, or for its release on global distribution platforms. Koyoharu Gotouge published the manga in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine between February 2016 and May 2020, compiling the work into a total of 23 volumes.
