According to Bloomberg, the anime market reached $23 billion in 2020 and is expected to increase to more than $36 billion by 2025. It’s great to see that South Africa is now embracing the medium and the culture now too. In fact, Nu Metro is bringing one of the biggest anime releases of the year, Demon Slayer – Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train, to cinemas near you.
That’s right. You can now watch a really great anime movie at the cinema – with 5.1 sound on a giant screen. How cool is that?
