Crunchyroll adds two episodes of Demon Slayer season 3 Hindi dub

Crunchyroll had announced its intention to add the Hindi dub for Demon Slayer season 3 back at the end of March 2023. Now, nearly a month after the anime premiered in Japan, the streaming platform has released the first two episodes of Demon Slayer season 3's Hindi dub for fans in India.

As per Crunchyroll's announcement, new subtitled and Hindi dubbed episodes of the anime are set to stream every week.

The Hindi voice cast for Demon Slayer: Swordsmith Village arc has also been revealed as Tanjiro Kamado will be voiced by Priyanka Bhandari, while Nezuko Kamado will be voiced by Hitanshi Jha.

As for Inosuke Hashibira, he will be voiced by Rahul Arya, who will also be voicing the Upper Moon Five Demon Gyokko. His partner, Upper Moon Four Demon Hantengu will be voiced by Tushar Kumar Deka.

As for the Hashiras, the Mist Hashira Muichiro Tokito will be voiced by Farhan Ali, while the Love Hashira Mitsuri Kanroji will be voiced by Shrishti Sargam.


How fans reacted to Demon Slayer: Swordsmith Village arc Hindi dub

While fans were glad that Crunchyroll added Hindi-dubbed episodes for the anime, they were baffled that it arrived before the English dub ones. Thus, fans could not stop asking about the release of the English-dubbed episodes.

One fan even questioned why Demon Slayer -To the Swordsmith Village- did feature English dub in the theatres but did not make the same available on Crunchyroll.

In addition, a common distaste for Demon Slayer season 3 Hindi dub could be observed as fans did not like the quality of the dubbing. One fan asked Crunchyroll to hire a professional dubbing studio for the dubbed projects they commission, as the current quality seemed awful to them. The dubbed dialogues did not stay true to the manga and changed it to a huge extent.

Moreover, fans specifically did not like the work by the Hindi dub voice actor of Kamado Tanjiro, Priyanka Bhandari.

They hoped that the streaming platform brings back the character's former voice actor from the second season as the current artist sounded like a cartoon character to them.
