In Thailand, the official release announcement of Kimetsu no Yaiba the movie is December 9th. It should’ve been released sooner. But due to COVID-19 crisis, we get to watch it at the end of 2020.
Kimetsu no Yaiba is very popular in Thailand. There was a special round a week ago, but the official one was yesterday. I booked the seat immediately and it was FULL yesterday as I expected. In front of the theatre, there were high school students wearing Tanjiro and Rengoku costumes. It was my first seeing japanese animation this popular aside from Kimi no na wa! Definitely, Thai fans want to see it according to the breaking sales record in Japan.
Now, let’s move on to my personal review of Kimetsu no Yaiba. First of all, the visual animation is FANTASTIC. You can clearly seen by the trailer. I thought the anime is unbelievably awesome, but the team make it more extreme in the Movie. It that even possible!? The fighting scenes are smooth as if this is not an animation! The music choices and audio quality is truly amazing. I could even hear the moving sounds of Tanjiro’s earrings guys.
This part contains some spoilers:
*This is only my personal opinion* I don’t follow manga, only the anime. I like the story line except the dead of Rengoku. In anime, demon slayer corps were represented with strength. The slaying demons scenes of Giyu and Shinobu are still imprinted in my eyes. Because I saw the corps as the extreme strength, I think Rengoku’s dead was too early. It was normal to get defeated, but as being one of the demon slayer corps, I expected to see something more of him. I asked my friend who is a BIG FAN of Kimetsu no Yaiba. She follows both manga and anime. She said that she loved the animation very much and it made her happy just to see the appearance of her favorite characters. However, she also agreed with me to this point about the dead of Rengoku.
Another point is the cut scences between sad and happy. I was really down and about to cry in Tanjiro’s dreaming scence. Then my emotion got switched instantly to hilarity in Zenitsu’s dreaming scence. At this point, my emotions did not reached the peak. You know, my tears were about to ran down and then they got dry. This is quite confusingly a mood swing. So, I think they should’ve arranged this a little bit better.
Lastly, I was worth waiting. If you are a big fan, I don’t think you should miss it! I think only some parts needed to be improved. Thank you so much for reading. It’s my turn now to continue watching Haikyuu the latest seasons! See you on my next post. Have a wonderful day.
