"Mugen Ressha Hen" Synopsis

Mugen Ressha Hen in Demon Slayer

One day, a boy named Tanjiro Kamado, who lived peacefully while selling charcoal, was killed by a demon and his only surviving sister, Nezuko, was also turned into a demon.

The everyday life that should have been taken for granted is suddenly taken away, and Tanjiro devotes himself to the battle with the demons as a member of the Demon Slayer Corps.

The movie version of "Mugen Ressha Hen" is set in the infinite train where more than 40 passengers are missing.

It is a story in which Tanjiro Kamado, Zenitsu Agatsuma, and Inosuke Hashibira, who were ordered to do the mission, confront a powerful demon called Enmu, who is Lower Rank 1, together with Kyojuro Rengoku, who is Flame Pillars.

It is no exaggeration to say that the central figure in "Mugen Ressha Hen" is Kyojuro Rengoku.

He is one of the top-class pillars in the Demon Slayer Corps, the "Flame Pillar".

Rengoku is a person who has not only overwhelming strength but also a strong sense of justice and good care.

The Rengoku family is a family that has served as a pillar of fire as the Demon Slayer Corps for generations, and his father was also a pillar of fire.

Then, his father quit the swordfighter and was exhausted, his mother had already died, and he lived while protecting his little brother.

However, he was so positive and straightforward that he didn't make people feel that way.

Rengoku, who uses its strength to ward off demon attacks, inspire Tanjiro and his friends, and give accurate instructions, was an unwavering and reliable existence that he met during his harsh demon-killing journey.

With his support, Tanjiro and his friends struggled with Enmu but hunted down him little by little.

However, the situation changes completely with the advent of Akaza, who is Upper Rank 3 and is a demon that is even higher than Enmu.

The demon's body regenerates immediately after being cut, and cannot be killed unless the head is dropped with a special sword called the Nichirin sword.

The human body is too weak against demons.

Rengoku takes a deep wound in the battle with Akaza.


Human is fragile.

Akaza mourns against Rengoku, but Rengoku says that


That's human beauty.

Supporting Rengoku was the deceased mother's word.

It is the responsibility of the strongly born to help the weak.

Then, with a force that does not seem to be a serious injury, grip the blade again.

What is "Homura"?

It is reminiscent of the breath of fire that Rengoku of the Flame Pillars has reached.

"Homura" means ordinary flame, but

A word that is the passion that burns in your heart

It also means that.

It's often used to express emotions such as jealousy or anger.

"Homura" is depicted for the theme of "Kimetsu no Yaiba" below.

  • Chain of sadness
  • The intersection of justice between demons and humans

The word fits them perfectly.

The determination of those left behind

“Goodbye” and “Thank you” at the top of my voice

What’s more important than grief

Hoping that they reach you as we part

In time for the warmth and pain

First of all, the lyrics of the song are sung from the perspective of the main character, Tanjiro.

Rengoku burns its own life and fights against a mighty enemy to protect and save Tanjiro and his friends.

Before he dies, he tries to convey gratitude rather than sadness.

"As we part" refers to a person standing on the verge of death, even from the story of Mugen Ressha Hen.

In other words, it is thought to be Rengoku.

The words "warmth" and "pain" seem to be the exact opposite, but they have something in common.

It is a concept that only living things can feel.

If you lose your life, you will not feel anything.

So, Tanjiro must express his gratitude as soon as possible while the warmth of Rengoku still remains.

I thought it would always be like this

I envisioned our days to come

Why, when our lights calling our to each other

Still burn deep in our hearts?

Enmu is a demon who manipulates the Blood Demon Art of forcibly showing a dream to the other party and destroying the spirit.

What he showed to Tanjiro was a dream that his family was alive and living together as if nothing had happened.

It was the happiest world.

However, when he realizes that it is a dream, he turns his back on his family to wake up.

To protect Nezuko and those who live in the real world.

These lyrics apply to both Tanjiro and Rengoku.

However, if anything, the feeling of Rengoku may be stronger.

Because, I think that the word "us" means that he was looking at the future of Nezuko and Tanjiro, who finally admitted as members of the Demon Slayer Corps.

Rengoku suffered from his father from an early age.

But he kept struggling and was always looking ahead.

He has become a dazzling light, but that light will disappear.

The last phrase, "Still burn deep in our hearts," probably reflects the remorse of Rengoku.

We met amidst a blazing journey

Coming together, then letting go for the sake of the future

This part depicts the scene of the farewell between Tanjiro and Rengoku.

"Amidst a blazing journey" is thought to refer to a life that has a dream and strives for it.

And he lets go for the future.

In other words, he dares to let go of his hand.

When you look back on Rengoku's words, there is the word below.


If you (Tanjiro Kamado) are dead, I'll lose.

Since this first lyric is drawn from the perspective of Tanjiro, it can be Tanjiro's intention to let go of his hand.

"Letting go" is, as the expression implies, to solidify his determination to part with Rengoku.

Tanjiro screamed at Akaza who escaped from Rengoku.

Angry Tanjiro

"Don't run away, stupid guy! Stupid guy! Coward!"

At that time, he would not have been prepared to part with Rengoku.

However, if he doesn't stop screaming, his injured belly will open and Rengoku will be "defeated" by Akaza.

And he regains his composure.

So, "letting go" means accepting Rengoku's death and listening to his words.


Grow more and more. And this time you will be the pillars that support the Demon Slayer Corps. I believe so.

This is exactly what the lyrics "for the sake of the future" mean.

Rengoku's victory and hopeful future are for Tanjiro and his friends to listen to Rengoku's words and grow up to become the pillars that support the Demon Slayer Corps.

To do that, he had to let go.

The lyrics are the thoughts of Tanjiro who heard all the words of Rengoku.

Every time a dream comes true, I’ll remember you

Wishing to become stronger, I cried with my resolve as the parting gift

This is a manifestation that Tanjiro will never forget that there was a big existence called Rengoku.

And the last "Parting gift (餞)" means it below.

Praying for the safety of those who leave, celebrating the future, entertaining drinks, and giving goods

This word proves that "Homura" is a song for Rengoku.


Also, I think that through the death of Rengoku, Tanjiro and his friends have become absolutely strong, and they are determined to not let anyone die anymore.

The flames of the successors

Held captive by nostalgic memories

Wailing at the cruelty of this world

There will be even more as I grow older

I never want to lose anything again

"Nostalgic memories" is probably the dream they had in the infinite train.

Enmu tries to put everyone to sleep and destroy the core of their spirits.

Tanjiro is trapped in the dream of happiness on a passing day when his family was still alive.

But in reality, his family has been murdered and his sister has been turned into a demon.

He really doesn't want to go back to reality.

And he doesn't want to lose his loved ones anymore.

Here, the desire to stay in a sweet memory is depicted.


In particular, I think it is a wish common to both Tanjiro and Rengoku.

Tanjiro loses his family and loses friends such as Rengoku as he grows up.

On the other hand, Rengoku, where his father was drowned in alcohol at the same time as his mother died, despite his enthusiastic guidance.

Although they have desires to be captivated by nostalgic feelings, they live strongly in a cruel world.

By succumbing to the grief

I might not feel pain anymore

Immersing yourself in sadness and playing the heroine of a tragedy can paralyze your mind and make you painless.

Everyone treats you with sympathy and pity.

Also, once you're in the shell of a tragedy, you don't have to get out of the lukewarm water.

But it's just a temporary pain reliever.

If you don't realize that, it's easy for humans to sink into the depths.

These lyrics refer to the scene in which a human being turns into a demon.

But your words, your wishes

I swore to protect them to the end

This phrase is the will of Rengoku received from his mother, and also the will of Tanjiro received from Rengoku.

It is the responsibility of the strongly born to help the weak.


I think that he vowed to keep the word.

Also, the hero does not choose to fall into sadness.

he will remember that promise that he swore with "you" and try to keep it.

These phrases can be said to represent the feelings of Tanjiro, who made Rengoku die.


Be proud of yourself.

In the end, Rengoku said it in front of Tanjiro and others.

Certainly, humans are fragile.

Even more so when compared to demons.

However, by protecting the next generation and communicating our thoughts, we can reach a far future.

Rengoku sees his father's back, and the will he receives from his mother's words is passed on to Tanjiro and his friends without interruption.

With a roar, it’s crumbling down

Our one and only, irreplaceable world

Rengoku said,


Old and dead are the beauty of human beings, the ephemeral creatures.Because we die because we are old, we are dear and precious.

I think the one irreplaceable world refers to such an irreplaceable human world.

In the fight against Akaza, Rengoku is pierced by the chest.


You'll die ...! You'll die, Kyojuro. Be a demon! Say you're a demon!

Then, in a moribund state, Akaza said it.

Despite being told so, he actually dies.

Therefore, the "our one and only, irreplaceable world" here probably means death as a human being.

The bundle of bursting light that I reached out for and held so close

Shimmered, then disappeared for the sake of the future

Going beyond the happiness and promises I’ve been entrusted

I’ll keep moving forward without glancing behind

Looking straight ahead, I’m going to cry out

Lighting the flames in my heart

Until I reach that distant future…

There is a sentence, "lighting the flames in my heart," which implies "burn your heart," which is a famous word by Rengoku.

The world where Rengoku was alive has collapsed, but instead of regretting his death, Tanjiro takes it strongly and uses it as a purpose for the future.

Tanjiro will not look back, and he will have no choice but to carry on Rengoku's will.

The song "Homura" seems to imply that life is a recurring farewell.

Tanjiro and his friends are still in the middle of a burning journey, and the time will come when they will have to let go of their hands.


Every time, I think that they want to shed tears and become stronger because of their lack of power.

What is sung in "Homura" is the harsh road that Tanjiro has taken so far, and is a suggestion of a cruel future that will continue.

But at the same time, it is also a fiery will that never disappears, inherited from Rengoku.

Summary of the whole lyrics

As anyone who reads until here will understand this summary below.

  • No. 1 lyrics: Thoughts of Tanjiro and others
  • No. 2 lyrics: Rengoku's thoughts

But that's not all.

Why did "I" and "You" appear consistently in the song?

When he faces various unpleasant events that make him want to escape from reality as he grows up, he remembers his promise with "You" at that time and tries to overcome the setbacks and failures.

And this time he himself becomes like "You" to someone, promising that person and the hope that he could not fulfill.

When the person stops in a difficult situation as "I", he remembers the promise and overcomes it.

In this chain of stories, the theme of the song "Homura", "The will that is inherited and never disappears," is beautifully expressed.

Meaning of LiSA tears

Why did LiSA last cry on the "Homura" of THE FIRST TAKE on the YouTube channel?

To that question, LiSA herself answers:


In THE FIRST TAKE, the piano is in a different room and singing in one person's space. "Homura" is a song that I made based on my own experience, so ... the experience of losing happiness and the words I got from that person at that time. Other than that, I remembered a lot of different scenes, such as the thoughts I had on Rengoku San with "Kimetsu no Yaiba". What should I say? It feels like my chest feels painful ... but it feels like I was allowed to spit it out, or it was overflowing.


The song that LiSA's own thoughts were repeated was this "Homura".

Of course, it is recommended to watch "Mugen Ressha Hen" of the Kimetsu no Yaiba in a movie, but you can also be impressed by the manga sufficiently.

You can read the episode of Mugen Ressha Hen in Volumes 7 and 8 of the original, so if you are interested in the content, please read them!

It's a moving story, so be careful of tears!
