‘Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba’ Season 2: Release Date, Episode Details, & Everything We Know So Far
The Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba first debuted in 2019, and took the anime world by storm. The beautiful animation style and some of the cutest character designs (yes, we’re talking about Nezuko) wowed the audience from the start, and a great storyline that kept them hooked until the very end of each episode.
The Demon Slayer is based on the highly popular manga of the same name by Koyoharu Gotouge. The first season was released in 2019, an anime series consisting of a total of 26 episodes. The story introduces the viewers to a young Kamado Tanjiro, whose family was slaughtered by demons, and his sister turned into one by the demon king. He sets out on a journey to find a cure for his sister, while learning to fight demons on the road, and of course, making new friends.
The first season was followed by the movie Demon Slayer: Mugen Train (Kimetsu no Yaiba: Kyōdai no Kizuna) released in October 2020. It was highly successful, crossing the $400 million mark quickly, making it the highest-earning anime film and Japanese film in history.
The huge popularity and success of The Mugen Train led Funimation to adapt the movie into a seven-episode TV series, that kicked off on October 10. It explores the backstory of the film, delving more into The Flame Hashira Kyojuro Rengoku’s arc.
The upcoming second season is one of the most highly-anticipated animes in recent memory, and fans all over the world are eager to find out what Season 2 is all about. In this article, we have gathered all the tidbits we know so far about Demon Slayer Season 2, everything from plot and casting details to release dates, and even a few details about the episodes themselves.
The second season of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba will premiere on December 5, 2021. Season 2, also known as the Entertainment District arc, will premiere with an hour-long episode, and air every Sunday at 11:15 pm (Japan Standard Time). The Entertainment District arc will broadcast over the course of two periods of three months each, also known as cours, on Fuji TV during fall and winter, according to Anime News Network. Before that, there will be a seven-episode miniseries about the Mugen Train film, known as The Mugen Train arc, that was kicked off on October 10, 2021.
Demon Slayer Season 2 will pick up right after the events of The Mugen Train. We can expect to get a prelude to the main story in the second season, at the end of The Mugen Train miniseries. Also known as the Entertainment District arc, the series will change its location to Yoshiwara, Japan’s famed red-light district. Tanjiro, Inosuke, Nezuko and Zenitsu will join the Sound Hashira Tengen Uzui in hunting notorious demons in Yoshiwara. Daki, one of the Twelve Kizukis, will play one of the primary antagonists in the Entertainment District Arc of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba.
The protagonists will be seen dealing with the loss of Kyojuro Rengoku, the Flame Hashira, fighting with their own personal demons while also battling real ones, and strengthening the bonds between each other during the process. The official trailer for Demon Slayer season 2 was revealed on February 14, alongside an official announcement in Kimetsu-Sai Online: Anime 2nd Anniversary Festival.
Season 2 of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba will run in two cours, as explained above, with the first part titled Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – Mugen Train Arc, a seven-episode version of The Mugen Train movie. It kicked off on October 10 and started with a little bit of a backstory of the events that led to the Flame Hashira Rengoku getting aboard the demonic train. We might also expect a prelude to the Entertainment District arc at the end of the seven-episode miniseries, bridging the gap between the two, while also serving as a teaser to Season 2’s main event.
