Demon Slayer: Mugen Train is currently told in the second season of the adaptation of anime, giving us a glimpse into the story of Tanjiro and his friends when they encounter the nefarious Enmu and an even more powerful demon waiting in the shadows.
The film itself has broken theatrical records and a music video of the Japanese singer LiSA is doing the same. LiSA is responsible for the opening theme song for the popular Shonen series, which has broken its own number of records, but perhaps none as fast as her new song “Akeboshi.”
The opening theme for Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mugen Train, which LiSA launched on its official YouTube channel, was able to reach a million views in twenty-four hours, proving once again how popular both the singer and the anime series have become.

Released as part of the Kimetsu no Yaiba movie soundtrack, “Akeboshi” is scheduled to be released in CD on November 17, 2021, later this month and has already been climbing the ranks digitally since its online launch.
While LiSA might be best known for her work on Kimetsu no Yaiba right now, she has also contributed to other anime franchises, including Sword Art Online and My Hero Academia, to name a few.
LiSA revealed the big news on its Twitter account, along with the music video in question, with the caption: “One million! Everyone’s power is amazing! Thank you! About a week to go until release.” At the time of writing this article in The Truth News, the MV for “Akeboshi” exceeds 2 million views.
Since hitting theaters in Japan and around the world, Mugen Train has become the most profitable and popular anime film of all time, dethroning Spirited Away for the number one spot.
While Kimetsu no Yaiba might not be in the running for “Best Animated Film” at the Oscars as the production of Studio Ghibli, the Shonen franchise is skyrocketing in popularity.
The second season of the television series currently tells the story of the Mugen Train, in December a new story of Kimetsu no Yaiba 2 will begin in the Entertainment District Arc created by Koyoharu Gotoge on your manga pages.
