Demon Slayer fans have been waiting anxiously for the moment they call all say, “season two is finally here.” With the outstanding trailer making that anticipation all the more intense, the first episode could not get here fast enough.
To set minds at ease, or perhaps make the excitement greater, this article will do a deep dive into everything, from the teaser to exactly when and where the show can be viewed.
This season is chartered to be released in two parts
Taking everyone by surprise, this season will be released in two parts, with the first half essentially being a seven-episode recap of the Demon Slayer movie. With little new material, this part is accurately named Demon Slayer: Mugen Train Arc. It serves to catch fans up on Mugen Train if they missed the movie.
So far it seems that only a handful of scenes are new. Therefore, those who have seen the movie do not necessarily have to watch this arc. Demon Slayer: Mugen Train Arc follows Rengoku and his journey all the way to his unfortunate demise.
The second half is the official season two of Demon Slayer. Named Demon Slayer: Entertainment District, it follows Tanjiro, Nezuko, and the other demon slayers as they deal with the aftermath of the Mugen Train events.
As shown in the trailer, this arc follows the group to Yoshiwara. Accompanied by the Sound Hashira, Tengen Uzui, fans can expect Tanjiro to go up against an Upper Rank demon or two. As a matter of fact, Upper Rank Six demon Daki is confirmed to make an appearance.
The trailer details that the Sound Hashira is expected to tag along and mentor the trio of Tanjiro, Inoskuke, and Zenitsu in the same way Rengoku did during Mugen Train.
