Demon Slayer Manga’s Final Issue Cover Spoils the Series’ Big Finale

A preview for the final cover of the best-selling manga series Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba was released on the manga's official Twitter.

The cover for the 23rd and final volume in the best-selling series shows the two main protagonists smiling and waving farewell to their readers, holding a stark contrast to the darker cover of the first issue, which showed these same two characters both in a state of distress. The final issue will be published Dec. 4.

Demon Slayer has been breaking records as one of the best-selling mangas of 2020, working its way towards becoming the top manga series of all time, worldwide. Along with the success of the manga, the Demon Slayer movie was released in theaters Oct. 16 and has become Japan's biggest IMAX release of all time, with IMAX CEO Rich Gelfond calling Demon Slayer: Mugen Train "one of the most remarkable box office successes of the year."

After only 5 weeks in theaters, Demon Slayer has brought in over $14 million across 38 IMAX screens. Previously holding this record was Bohemian Rhapsody, which earned a little over $13 million in 134 days.

Demon Slayer: Mugen Train will be released in American theaters in 2021.
