The film opened at #1 in Japan on January 8 and ended Demon Slayer: Mugen Train The Movie's 12 consecutive weekends at the top of the Japanese box office.

Sorachi's original "science-fiction period-drama comedy" manga began in 2003 and ended in June 2019 with over 55 million copies in circulation. The latest anime series premiered in July 2018. The manga has also inspired various original video anime (OVA), event anime, two live-action films, and two live-action net spinoffs. Viz Media published the manga's first 23 volumes in English.
