Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mugen Train, the anime adaptation of the film of the same name that broke all existing records, finally presented its long-awaited opening. Although the show officially debuted in Japan and the world, last week, LiSA’s long-awaited theme song could be heard with the premiere of episode 2, released on October 17.
Last week the Infinity Train Arc hit Japanese television and with simulcast to platforms such as Crunchyroll and Funimation where the first chapter was released that presented us with incredible scenes with Rengoku as well as a new demon that were not included in the film.
The first chapter of the new anime focused on the character of Kyōjurō Rengoku, to give him a better context, and his mission, than what was shown in the film that arrived in Japan in 2020 and our region last April. But despite these exciting new scenes, the intro theme didn’t appear, so many fans wondered when they might hear it.
This happened with the arrival of Chapter 2, entitled “A Deep Sleep” (what can you see here), in which it is narrated how Rengoku goes to the Infinite Train to investigate the disappearance of more than forty passengers. On his way he meets a demon and after saving more people from this entity, he finally reaches his destination, which awaits him with many dangers.
After the intro scene, which shows Tanjiro and Zenitsu arriving at their place on the train and meeting Rengoku for the first time, LiSA’s “Akeboshi” plays, who has already performed the well-known opening theme of the first season, “Gurenge”. .

The Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mugen Train anime will show basically the same as the movie of the same name, which was inspired by the Infinity Train Arc, also known as the Demon Train, Kimetsu no Yaiba’s sixth story arc, but with a different form. to tell it and unpublished images.
It will have seven episodes in length, with the first of them, released last week, dedicated to Kyojurou Rengoku, the Pillar of Fire, the main character of this arc, but we saw little in the film due to the cinema format. This first episode was brand new and featured Rengoku on his way to the Infinity Train, before embarking on the difficult mission of taking down the demons. From chapter 2 to 7, what is shown on the tape will be told and the next episodes will be released on the following Sundays.
