What Is It?
The 2020 Japanese anime (animated) movie Demon Slayer The Movie: Mugen Train (Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train).
Here is how MyAnimeList describes this anime movie:
After a string of mysterious disappearances begin to plague a train, the Demon Slayer Corps’ multiple attempts to remedy the problem prove fruitless. To prevent further casualties, the Flame Pillar, Kyoujurou Rengoku, takes it upon himself to eliminate the threat. Accompanying him are some of the Corps’ most promising new blood: Tanjirou Kamado, Zenitsu Agatsuma, and Inosuke Hashibira, who all hope to witness the fiery feats of this model demon slayer firsthand.
Unbeknownst to them, the demonic forces responsible for the disappearances have already put their sinister plan in motion. Under this demonic presence, the group must muster every ounce of their willpower and draw their swords to save all two hundred passengers onboard. Kimetsu no Yaiba Movie: Mugen Ressha-hen delves into the deepest corners of Tanjirou’s mind, putting his resolve and commitment to duty to the test.

I did not look forward to this anime movie, I expected to not like it like I hated Demon Slayer (Season 1), but to my surprise it was better than expected.
It was pretty good, and it almost made me cry; I teared up a little.
Some of the action scenes were cool and artistic, and the final battle was good & emotional.
The final battle was possibly the best part of this movie, along with some emotional dream scenes.
After watching this movie, it now seems that Demon Slayer (Season 2) has hope, so far it is better than season 1, and is actually a watchable anime now.
I would rate this anime movie a 3.5 – 4 out of 5.
