news culture ‘A Scam’, New Demon Slayer Movie Hits US Box Office, Fans Furious
Coming out of the movie, some Demon Slayer fans expressed their displeasure about Kimetsu no Yaiba – On the Way to the Blacksmith’s Village. Is it legal or not?
Last weekend, new production Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – On the Way to the Village grossed $10 million for its debut in the US and Canada according to figures reported to IGN by Comscore. An excellent score and yet, it’s still only half of what the last feature film, The Infinity Train, brought in on its opening weekend in 2021 with $21 million. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – On the Road to the Village of Blacksmiths is not a true animated film designed for cinema, but a collection of episodes 10 and 11 of the Pleasure Quarters arc, followed by the first episode of the season. 3, i.e. village arc of blacksmiths. A very different approach to Train of the Infinite, which adapted an unprecedented arc into animation for cinema before cutting it into different parts for streaming viewing. And the reactions are quite mixed.
When fans are disillusioned
For many fans, the unreleased portion was clearly not enough to justify such a release., some even provoking a “scandal,” to use the words identified by our colleagues at IGN, with more than half of the film serving as a summary at the end. “Don’t waste your time with this, save money“, “They ripped everyone off with this Demon Slayer “movie” but I guess it could have been worse“, “They got me with this movie that made me watch two recap episodes and one new episode“Can we read a handful of tweets. Others will admit that the description of the film was rather honest in its content.
Bruh it’s sad when mfs just act as a cash grab shit. This new Demon Slayer movie is exactly that. Basically the “movie” is a rerun of episodes 10 and 11 of season 2 Then you get a sneak peek of the first episode of the new season 😂 Don’t waste your time with this save your money pic.twitter.com/viuENbYtI2
