It’s no secret that Demon Slayer is the hottest thing on the anime market right now. It’s the best selling manga of all time which somehow won against One Piece, another juggernaut hit in Shounen Jump franchise in terms of sales. The recent theatrical release of Demon Slayer: Mugen Train became the most engrossing film in the box office of 2020, rivaling that success with Hayao Miyazaki’s Spirited Away in 2001. And with the second season coming later in the winter, its popularity isn’t slowing down any time soon.
