Demon Slayer Season 2: Story, Trailer And Which Characters Will Return?

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba has broken through as a popular title and it has fast become one of the most celebrated anime of its genre. Demon Slayer builds upon the traditional staples of this shonen genre and comes with a relatable throw of underdogs who work hard to take down evil forces and bring back stability to not just the Earth, but also some of the fractured families.

The anime blends a simple, yet addictive, storyline with unique and powerful personalities that delve right into an ambitious and gorgeous battle sequence with surreal creatures. The first season of Demon Slayer tells a rather contained story that helps establish Tanjiro, Nezuko, along with his fellow demon-slaying buddies onto a significant adventure. Another season for Demon Slayer has been an inevitability on the finish of the first batch of episodes, but some more concrete details have come together on what substance it will handle and if it may become.

When Is It Coming And How Many Episodes Will It Be?

A recent trailer for season 2 of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba affirms the episodes will fall in 2021, but specifics are differently slim. The trailer does show off some attractive new footage, but additionally, it is thin enough to indicate that creation still has a ways to go. Season two coming in the second half, or even the final quarter, of 2021 is the very realistic expectation here.

It also is logical to presume that Demon Slayer’s second is going to probably be 26 episodes, like its predecessor, but there are a few details that may discourage this. Season one of Demon Slayer adapted just over 50 manga chapters in these 26 episodes. Demon Slayer’s Entertainment District Arc is just 30 chapters in the manga. This may mean that a much longer time will be spent adapting every chapter, or it’s possible the Entertainment District Arc writes the majority of season 2, but not the entire thing. The last, and most unappealing scenario, is that season two will operate with the same pacing as the season, but still only focus on the Entertainment District Arc, which would signify that it could be a shorter season of approximately 16 episodes.

What’s The New Story?

Demon Slayer season 2 features the subtitle of”Entertainment District Arc,” which gives a fairly clear indication of what material from the Demon Slayer manga is going to be adapted. The Entertainment District Arc takes Tanjiro and business into Yoshiwara, an unscrupulous red-light district, where crime and demon action run uncontrolled. Demon activity is suspected after some wives go lost from the area. A new ally for Tanjiro has a personal connection to this mystery and it renders Tanjiro more inspired than ever to reach the bottom of all this. Tanjiro is always willing to selflessly sacrifice himself to help solve the demon problems of the others, however, Yoshiwara feels more threatening and dangerous than what he’s previously tackled during the start of his trip.

Which Characters Will Return?

Season two of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is set to feature All the beloved characters from season one, such as Tanjito, Nezuko, Zenitsu, and Inosuke. These characters recently bond and learn a lot from the Flame Hashira, Kyojuro Rengoku, but season two sets them up with another powerful Hashira, Tengen Uzui. The promotional materials for now two have teased Uzui, who is the Audio Hashira. Uzui assists Tanjiro against the new breed of Twelve Demon Moon that is dedicated to their devastation.

What Is Muzan Kibutsuji Planning With The Twelve Demon Moons?

The ending of Demon Slayer’s first season details a defeated Muzan Kibutsuji drastically cleaning the house and carrying out nearly all his trusted Twelve Demon Moons. The few that remain have been granted new power and new incentives to ensure Tanjiro’s death hasn’t held more weight. Kibutsuji provides one of his allies, Enmu, a big opportunity, but season two digs deeper into Kibutsuji’s attempts for supremacy. Daki and Gyutaro are two new antagonists that Tanjiro and Uzui need to contend with as they move farther into the Yoshiwara district.

How Is The Mugen Train Movie Connected?

Demon Slayer’s Entertainment District Arc is set to be the anime’s second time, but it will not be something that can just be watched instantly following season one’s finale without a level of confusion. Demon Slayer’s very first film, Mugen Train, really bridges the gap between the first and second seasons and covers a critical story arc before the characters arrive in the red light district. Some anime films operate out of the canon and are not mandatory seeing, but also in this instance Mugen Train is Demon Slayer season 1.5 and it is a suitable companion piece to those new episodes.

Will It Have A Dub And Where Will It Be Available To Stream?

It must be made clear that Demon Slayer’s season two launch date of 2021 is for the original Japanese airings instead of Funimation’s English dub. Demon Slayer’s overwhelming popularity and success mean that dub for two is a guarantee even when it has not been officially provided with a date. It is likely that dubbed Demon Slayer season 2 may still hit towards the end of 2021, especially since the anime gained fame during its broadcast premiere on Adult Swim’s Toonami anime block.
