The Weekly Stuff #372 – The KIMETSU NO YAIBA (Demon Slayer) Episode!

Episode Summary

Ahead of the release of the franchise's first movie next week, we're talking all about KIMETSU NO YAIBA (Demon Slayer), the most popular anime franchise in Japan right now!

Episode Notes

We’re talking about anime again this week, but for once, it’s not Gundam! It’s Kimetsu no Yaiba, also known as Demon Slayer, the most popular anime/manga franchise in Japan right now, and increasingly one of the most discussed around the world. With the record-breaking movie, Mugen Train, making its way to North American theaters next week, we go in-depth with the first season of the anime from Ufotable, based on the first 6 volumes of Koyoharu Gotouge’s best-selling manga. It’s a spectacular 26 episodes, one of the most perfect seasons of Shonen anime imaginable, featuring not just terrific storytelling, characters, and acting, but significant technical breakthroughs and breathtaking filmmaking that feel like they’re pushing the entire medium of anime forward. We also touch on the news that Gundam is getting a live-action film from Legendary Pictures and Netflix, and Jonathan tells you all about the exciting things happening on The Weekly Stuff Podcast’s brand new YouTube channel!

Enjoy, and come back next week for our review of the Kimetsu film, Mugen Train!
