The film is being shown again in more than 380 Japanese theaters between July 22 and 29 for a limited time as “the latest series of screenings.” Theater attendees are receiving a special A5-size card of the character Kyoujurou Rengoku, which was planned to be delivered in May, but made impossible by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Synopsis of Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mugen Ressha-hen
After a series of mysterious disappearances begin to plague a train, the Demon Hunter Corps’ multiple attempts to remedy the problem are unsuccessful. To avoid further casualties, the Pillar of Fire, Kyoujurou Rengoku, is tasked with eliminating the threat. He is joined by some of the Corps’ most promising New Blood members: Tanjirou Kamado, Zenitsu Agatsuma, and Inosuke Hashibira, who look forward to witnessing the fiery exploits of this model demon hunter firsthand.
Unbeknownst to them, the demonic forces responsible for the disappearances have already launched their sinister plan. Under this demonic presence, the group must muster every ounce of their willpower and draw their swords to save the two hundred passengers on board. Thus, Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mugen Ressha-hen delves into the deepest corners of Tanjirou’s mind, testing his determination and commitment to duty.
