Is there an after credits scene in the Demon Slayer movie?

Well, the answer is no. There is no after credits scene in the Demon Slayer movie. None was teased before release, and it was also confirmed by several fans on Twitter and social media that there is no post-credits.

With that said, I’d definitely suggest sticking around to check some of the staff roll if you can. Whether you have a keen interest in Sakuga or not, it’s always interesting to see if you can recognize some of the names who participated in an anime’s production. It’s also your chance to check out the voice actor / seiyuu cast with each character’s voice still fresh in your mind.

Moreover, you might also be wondering if the Japanese version of the movie actually had a post-credits scene. As you might already now, sadly, it’s not unusual for Western releases to cut these from the overseas versions. Well, rest assured, it’s not the case here. The Japanese version of the Demon Slayer Kimetsu no Yaiba Mugen Train movie had no after credits scene either.
