Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba -To the Hashira Training- (2024) received mixed reviews from audiences on IMDB

Some people think that the movie’s length is too long.
Returning to the Hashira training scene in part 3 is unnecessary, in addition, the skill of summarizing parts 2-3 is not optimized, making viewers bored. Meanwhile, the amount of new content in the movie is not much and does not leave much impression on viewers. There are also people who think that the movie has too much plot.
In addition to all of the above being very well rendered, Wind and Serpent Hashira exploring the mansion is perfectly long and fluidly animated, and seeing their breathing styles in motion is completely captivating and engaging. leads the manga audience
The animation and action scenes are created with great sophistication. The first-person perspective in running scenes has a three-dimensional feel, many action scenes are engaging and impressive. The depiction of melting skin, displays of strength, and cutscenes are superbly done. The demons and gore add to the overall experience and the interactions between the characters are magical, mixing some good comedy into the set pieces. Meanwhile, the villain also wins the love of viewers and arouses curiosity.

I don’t think the movie has an open ending but rather a foundation for the sequels. In short, Demon Slayer: To the Hashira Train is an exciting introduction to the upcoming Demon Slayer series, audiences can fully expect the sequel to feature elite animation and character evolution.
