The movie Demon Slayer – Kimetsu No Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train is the highest-grossing Japanese film ever. The film is now on its way to theaters in the United States, with an R-rating.

The film piqued the interest of the Japanese people.
Demon Slayer: Mugen Train: R-Rated
Demon Slayer: Mugen Train will be rated R for “violence and gruesome visuals” when it opens in theaters across the United States next month after smashing box office records in Japan. The film is unmistakably violent, according to Kotaku, but it was only given a PG-12 certificate in Japan, which is equal to PG-13 in the United States.
