The second season of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba has been announced! Aniplex announced on social media earlier this year that the second season would be named ‘Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba Entertainment District Arc,’ and that fans can anticipate the program to premiere shortly.
Let’s fast forward to the second half of 2021, and we already have two teaser trailers and a rough release date!
When Will Demon Slayer Season 2 Be Released?
Season 2 of Demon Slayer is expected to premiere in October 2021, as part of the Fall anime lineup. However, this is merely a guess.
The release date has yet to be confirmed by any official source associated with the anime.
However, given that the season was announced in February 2022, there’s cause to suppose that the release is imminent.
According to a Yahoo Japan report, the second season was postponed because Fuji TV demanded adjustments to a few plot components. The anime, on the other hand, is now planned to launch in the fall.
There aren’t any highly anticipated anime releases scheduled for September-November, which would put Demon Slayer in the forefront for its return. Demon Slayer Season 2 is premiered on 20, February 2022.
Furthermore, if the anime doesn’t debut before then, the makers will have to postpone it until Spring 2022, since Attack On Titan’s last season is set to premiere in the Winter, and they may want to avoid clashing with it.
Where Can I Watch Demon Slayer Season 2?
Season 2 of Demon Slayer will be available to stream on Funimation immediately. Crunchyroll is expected to release the dubbed versions soon after, and Netflix will follow suit in early 2022.
Netflix, Crunchyroll, Hulu, and Funimation are now streaming the first season.
Season 2 may take a little longer for Netflix to pick up. Season 1 took them nearly sixteen months to add to their library, and the Mugen Train movie is still missing from their list in most regions.
Although the wait should be less than last time, don’t anticipate it to be available on Netflix until Spring 2022.
When Will Demon Slayer Season 2 Be Released in Dub?
Toonami has won the rights to broadcast the second season of Demon Slayer. Based on prior release trends, dubbing the season should take roughly 6-8 months, which implies the season 2 dub should be released around June/July 2022 assuming the anime is released in October of that year.
With animes like Promised Neverland and Sword Art Online, Toonami followed a similar timetable, thus the dub should be released sooner than anticipated.
What’s the Plot of Demon Slayer Season 2?
The manga’s Yuukaku-hen storyline will be followed in the second season of Demon Slayer. Tanjiro and his buddies will penetrate a red-light district with Hashira Tengen Uzui to investigate the area’s horrible deaths.
Because the manga arc spans 30 chapters, this season should be completed in 12-13 episodes.
Yuukaku-hen Entertainment District is a term used to describe an area that accommodates different types of adult entertainment.
It’s unknown how explicit the anime will be in dealing with these darker topics, but it’s safe to assume that the producers will steer away from anything that may be considered problematic.
This season, all major characters such as Tanjiro, Nezuko, Inosuke, and Zenitsu will return. Tengen Uzui, the Sound Hashira, will accompany them as they traverse the dazzling evenings of the Entertainment District.
Do You Need to Watch Mugen Train Before Season 2?
Yes, you must watch Mugen Train before proceeding to Season 2 of Demon Slayer.
The film begins immediately where the first season of the anime left off, and season two is planned to begin directly after the events of the film. The events of Mugen Train will have an impact on this season as well.
To put it another way, Demon Slayer: Mugen Train is a brief (but vital) arc that acts as a prelude to the following season.
It’s also wise to be prepared since we don’t know whether the second season will include a summary to assist the viewers.
Mugen Train is also one of the finest shounen anime flicks ever made. The film promises high-quality animation, powerful music, and emotional effect, and it does not disappoint. There’s a reason it shattered box office records, you know.
