Curiously, the film appeals to younger audiences as well as older people. The story of a boy who takes revenge on a demon devouring human flesh for the murder of his family, for some reason stirred up the emotional mood of the broadest masses of Japanese citizens.

"Now, during the epidemic, many people are physically suffering and experiencing strong feelings. I don’t think that the film was shot with an eye on such a target audience, but still it contains some significant meaning for all of us living now and because he is able to interest people. So, in my opinion, it's even good that now this film has become a real hit. "

When dealing with the worldview of the children of the solar goddess Amaterasu (namely, this is how the inhabitants of the Land of the Rising Sun themselves define themselves), one should never forget about the syncretic, that is, in fact, the pagan religious tradition of the Far Eastern island state.


Most Japanese practice Shinto, spiritualizing nature and cultivating the worship of ancestral spirits. The world of the Japanese is full of invisible entities that do not obey the supreme deity, but live according to the laws of nature. Many of them are neutral or even hostile towards a person, so they need to be appeased or enter into a certain relationship with them. Perhaps it is this view of things that will determine the popularity of the film "The Blade that Cuts the Demons." Nothing is known about the release date of this film in Russia and the CIS.
