Why Will Skytree Glow Red?
The movie Demon Slayer movie that will be released is titled ‘Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train’. If you have read the Kimestu no Yaiba manga, then you will know that this movie follows on from where the anime finishes. This arc is very much centered around a character called ‘Rengoku’ and how he helps Tanjiro. Rengoku harnesses fire power and so the color red very closely links to his character. Skytree have announced that this is why they are choosing to make the tower glow red. This is a great way to mark the release of the film and also gives non-manga readers clues on what the movie may be about!
