“Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba — To the Hashira Training” is not a movie but a long version of two episodes from the “Demon Slayer” TV series. It’s directed by Haruo Sotozaki and made by the Japanese animation studio Ufotable.

This is the second time they’ve done this. Last year, they combined the end of season two with the start of season three. Now, they’ve put together the end of season three and the beginning of season four. Each part is about an hour long, but season four hasn’t been on TV yet. This is mostly for fans of the show.

The action scenes are really cool, with lots of sword fighting and demons getting defeated.

But putting the end of one season and the start of another into one movie feels a bit weird. It’s like having an exciting ending and then a slow beginning. The main character, Tanjiro, spends a lot of time in bed after a big fight, and the new story is just getting started when the movie ends. It would have been better if it was a real movie.

“Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba — To the Hashira Training” is rated R for cartoon violence and some strong language. It’s in Japanese with English subtitles and lasts for 1 hour and 44 minutes. You can watch it in theaters now.
