More about the anime

The Demon Slayer anime runs for two seasons, with the Mugen Train movie linking seasons 1 and 3. Season 2 adapted the Entertainment District arc, shifting the setting of the story to the Yoshiwara District of Edo, now Tokyo. The arc introduced the Sound Hashira Tengen Uzui and his three kunoichi wives. Moreover, it showed the protagonist Tanjiro awakening his Demon Slayer Mark for the first fight during their fierce battle against the Upper Moon siblings, Daki and Gyutaro.

The season ended with Akaza being summoned to Muzan’s Infinity Palace, previously seen in episode 26 of season 1 when the Demon King killed off all the Lower Moons. The first key visual for season 3 appeared on the same date as the release of the final episode of season 2.


A promotional video dropped by the studio in April introduced two Hashiras who will likely dominate the upcoming arc - Mist Hashira, Muichiro Tokito, and Love Hashira, Mitsuri Kanroji. Voice actors Kengo Kawanishi (voicing Tokito) and Kana Hanazawa (voicing Kanroji) will appear at the Jump Super Stage panel with Tanjiro’s voice actor, Natsuki Hanae, to promote the series and discuss the story arc that will be animated.
