If you ever walk into an anime store, the first few items you are likely to see will include cloak-wearing characters with samurai-looking swords and a cute girl with a cylindrical object placed over her mouth. These characters belong, and it’s a bit of a big deal, with another season just around the corner.
It’s true, it’s time for gentle eyes, but certainly Tanjiro Kamado continues his relentless quest to find a cure for his sister-turned-demon Nezuko Kamado — hacking a demon or two along the way with his signature water-breathing form.
Demon Slayer has been a monumental hit over the last two years. It rose to new heights during the pandemic with the release of his spectacularly animated canonical film, Demon Slayer: Mugen Train, which became the fastest film to make over 10 billion yen in the Japanese box office (that’s more than $ 100 million). The film’s total earnings exceeded $ 313 million in December 2020, when Hayao Miyazaki’s magnum opus was removed, the critically acclaimed animated fantasy film Spirited Away, which had held its place since its 2001 release.
Tension is bubbling now as we are just weeks away from the new Demon Slayer action. Here’s everything you need to know about Demon Slayer Season 2.
Release Date of Demon Slayer Season 2
Instead of starting with the already announced Entertainment District Arc, as everyone expected, Funimation revealed Saturday, that the film Mugen Train will be adapted into a seven-section arc, the Mugen Train Arc. This arc will stream first and includes 70 new scenes, new music tracks, episode previews, a new theme song and an unprecedented original episode of Kyojuro Rengoku undertaking a new mission en route to the Mugen train.
Mugen Train Arc will stream further Funimation in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand on Sunday 10 October.
It will also be available on the European streaming service Wakanim. The bow will come sometime later to Funimation in Latin American territories and it will be lit. Hulu and Crunchyroll in the United States also on Sunday, October 10th.
Funimation, Crunchyroll and Hulu are all subscription video-on-demand homes for Demon Slayer, with Funimation leading the pack.
Mugen Train Arc will connect season 1, Tanjiro Kamado, Unwavering Resolve Arc, with season 2, Entertainment District Arc, which is an adaptation from the original source material, the manga written by Koyoharu Gotouge. Along with the news came a new key visual for Mugen Train Arc and a new trailer.
Entertainment District Arc premieres with an hour-long episode on Sunday, December 5th. The arc continues from there to broadcast every Sunday during the winter season on Fuji TV, a Japanese television station that gives fans half a year’s worth of sword-cutting action.
The news release came on Saturday at the end of Fuji TV’s special season 1 broadcast, culminating in a screening of the Demon Slayer movie, Mugen Train, for the first time on television. These broadcasts included newly recorded footage not seen by us wishing we could join the Demon Slayer Corps.
How to Watch Demon Slayer Season 2 in the United States
Funimation releases the subbed episodes to English-speaking territories alongside fall and winter Sunday broadcasts in Japan, which means it will premiere the entertainment district arc with the hour-long episode also Sunday, December 5th.
The Arc will also be available on Crunchyroll and Hulu. The dubbed episodes come to Funimation and Crunchyroll at a later date.
Where we left off: Summary of season 1 and Mugen Train
Demon Slayer Season 2 will take place after the events of the burning clash on the Mugen Train – the setting for the Demon Slayer movie, where there were rumors that 40 passengers disappeared at the end of season 1.
Swordsman trio Tanjiro Kamado, Zenitsu Agatsuma and Inosuke Hashibira are sent to the train at the end of season 1 to investigate the disappearance, after their rehabilitation training ends in Butterfly Mansion The trio is accompanied by Tanjiro’s sister-turned demon Nezuko, as always, and Fire Hashira Kyojuro Ro . (The Hashira is the elite group of Demon Slayer swordsmen.)
Without going into the spoiler area, let’s just say that Demon Slayers is facing Enmu, a demon of the twelve Kizuki who have terrorized passengers on the Mugen train. The Twelve Kizuki is the strongest group of demons gathered by Muzan Kibutsuji – the original demon who alone can turn humans into demons.
We can expect to see more of the mission on the Mugen train as Ufotable, the Japanese animation studio that brings the manga to life, created the seven-episode Mugen Train Arc, including the never-before-seen Kyojuro Rengoku episode.
What’s next for the new members of Demon Slayer Corps? The entertainment district arch
That trailer for Demon Slayer Season 2 shows Tanjiro, Zenitsu, Inosuke and Nezuko on their way to Yoshiwara for their next mission, which involves a city of dazzling bright lights and nocturnal tendencies “flooded with vanity and lust from men and women.” Maybe the perfect place for a demon.
The Entertainment District Arc will introduce a new large demon named Daki, the Upper Rank Six demon, which our daring adventurers will have to contend with. Daki will be pronounced by Miyuki Sawashiro.
Great emphasis is placed on Sound Hashira, Tengen Uzui, in the trailer and the advertising poster, and then we can expect to learn more about his backstory as he is likely to lead the mission through the streets of Yoshiwara.
Will there be more star music to add to the soundtrack?
Yes. LiSA, who sang the original Demon Slayer theme sang, Gurenge, returns to sing the theme songs for the series. The opening theme is called Akeboshi, and the closing theme is called Shirogane. The theme songs for the opening episode of season 2 will be performed by Japanese singer Aimer. Their names are Zankyo Sanka and Asa ga kuru.
