Kimetsu no Yaiba TV Rating: Mugen Ressha-hen Steadily Decreasing

The Japanese portal Mantan Web reported that the fifth episode of the anime Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mugen Ressha-hen, aired on November 14 on Fuji TV, achieved an audience rating of 5.7 percent in the Kanto Area, the most populated metropolitan area in the world. This represents the fourth consecutive decline that the series suffers in its audience rating since its premiere on October 10 on Japanese television.

The first episode had an audience rating of 10.0 percent, followed by second with a 8.0 percent, the third with a 7.0 percent, the room with the 6.4 percent, and finally the fifth with a 5.7 percent. Fans point out that this steady decline is due to the fact that the series is not offering anything new (beyond the first episode) that has not already been seen in the movie. However, the fact that the index continues to decline means that even those who were still watching it now are abandoning it for the time being.

On the other hand, the second season project of the anime adaptation is already on air and is listed (still unofficially, but by distribution platforms) with a total of eighteen episodes, seven of which correspond to Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mugen Ressha-hen and eleven to Kimetsu no Yaiba: Yuukaku-hen. The project is in broadcast, starting with the first series, since last October 10, while Crunchyroll and Funimation take care of its distribution.
