Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Producer Yuma Takahashi as of late talked The Mainichi Shimbun’s online news website Mantan-Web with respect to the achievement of the anime in the wake of the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba: The Movie: Mugen Train film’s record-breaking opening weekend sales.

Fans of the adventures of Tanjiro, Nezuko, and their demon-killing friends are holding on to see when a second season of the series will drop, which will proceed with the mission of the Demon Slayer Corps. Incidentally enough, in the stature of Demon Slayer’s popularity, the franchise reached a conclusion inside the pages of its manga, wrapping up the story that has handily gotten one of the greatest Shonen series right now running in the realm of anime today.

Yuma Takahashi: “To get many people to watch your work, it takes many different factors working together, but a big underlying factor is the appeal of the original manga. Although there may be people who learn about the manga through the anime, that in itself does not generate a hit. Regardless of anything else, the original manga is interesting. We earnestly tried to adapt it into anime without losing any of the manga’s appeal. Because of the foundation laid by the high-quality original work, Ufotable was able to make a wonderful anime. Their hard work, their earnest attitude towards adaptation, and their techniques were also factors.”

“Throughout the past few years, it has become commonplace to watch anime not just on television but through streaming platforms. This change in the environment is also a big factor. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba streamed on various services. It’s certainly not as if two-cour anime are nonexistent, but by airing for two cours, Demon Slayer had the time to build up an audience. While the anime was airing, the story being serialized in the manga was heating up, so the timing was also ideal. It wasn’t as if it suddenly became the center of attention; I feel that it steadily picked up fans and expanded its audience.”

Demon Slayer manga is as yet a top vendor in Japan notwithstanding it having finished recently. Following to appearing in 2016, the manga has sold more than 100 million copies which makes it a standout amongst other selling manga, time.
