Demon Slayer anime confirms Season 2 release date




Earlier this year, we found out that the Demon Slayer sequel was in pre-production. Now we finally have a confirmed Japanese release date: December 5, 2021, according to the official social media of the Demon Slayer anime series.

The second season of Kimetsu No Yaiba, or Demon Slayer, will follow the storyline from the Entertainment District arc of the manga series. It follows the journey of Tanjiro, Inosuke, and Zenitsu, who help Sound Pillar Tengen Uzui search for his missing wives. Apparently, his wives disappeared while investigating rumors of demons in the neighborhood.

The sequel will again be produced by animation studio Ufotable, which produced both the first season of Demon Slayer and its Mugen Train arc film. It looks like an electrifying battle will ensue, as the Demon Slayers take on the top rank demon Daki, voiced by Miyuki Sawashiro.

In addition to that, there will also be a seven-episode anime series from the Mugen Train arc, which will air in Japan from October 10. These episodes are edited from the movie Mugen Train which was already released last year, but also feature new content. The all-new first episode will begin the series from the perspective of Flame Pillar Kyojuro Rengoku, as he makes his way to the Mugen train. The remaining episodes will feature a new cut of the Mugen Train movie, with additional scenes and new background music.

Mugen Train arc series opening song Akeboshi and ending song Shirogane will again be sung by LiSA, who is known for Demon Slayer Gurenge season one opening song and Mugen Train movie theme song Homura. As for the Entertainment District series of arcs, Aimer will sing both the opening song Zankyosanka and the ending song Asa Ga Kuru.

The Mugen Train and Entertainment District episodes will eventually be available on streaming sites, including Netflix, after they air on Japanese TV channels. While there isn’t much information on the international release just yet, we’ll likely hear more from distributor Muse Asia in time, as they’ll be distributing Demon Slayer’s Entertainment District arc regionally.
