Demon Slayer: Why an anime-original ending isn’t required for the Infinity Castle story arc

It is widely accepted among manga readers that the Infinity Castle arc is undeniably one of the most thrilling story arcs in the series, if not the most. The arc is extensive and filled with non-stop action on almost every page of the manga. Ufotable, as a studio, has gained a reputation for faithfully adapting the original manga without making significant changes.

Despite the lack of anime-original scenes until the Hashira Training arc, Koyoharu Gotouge rushed this portion of the story, consisting of only eight chapters. However, the animation studio took a risk and incorporated a few anime-original scenes, ultimately enhancing the overall viewing experience.

While the approach used may not yield the same outcome for the Demon Slayer Infinity Castle movies, this does not necessarily mean that anime-original scenes will be added. In the previous arc, the addition of these scenes was primarily driven by a lack of compelling content. However, this is not the case for the Infinity Castle arc.

The Demon Slayer Infinity Castle movies will feature some of the most thrilling battles, including Zenitsu Agatsuma’s standout fight against Kaigaku. Additionally, the trilogy of films will culminate in a showdown between the demon hunters and Kokushibo, the powerful Upper Moon 1 demon.

The most powerful Upper Moon demon will engage in a fierce battle against Gyomei Himejima, Sanemi Shinazugawa, Genya Shinazugawa, and Muichiro Tokito. Changing the result of this clash would significantly alter the overall tone and atmosphere of the series. The deaths of certain characters are integral to conveying the emotional impact of the story.

The significance of Kagaya Ubuyashiki’s family sacrifice in propelling the plot forward is comparable to the role it played in the anime. This pivotal event marked the start of a full-scale attack on Kibutsuji Muzan and his followers, making it one of the most crucial plot developments.

The method in which Koyoharu Gotouge executed this story arc is flawless and any changes would have a detrimental effect on the overall enjoyment of the Demon Slayer Infinity Castle movies.
