Demon Slayer Season 2 Release Date
As with other anime, the release date for Demon Slayer season 2 is still unclear. For the time being, the latest official announcement is that the new season will premiere in 2021.
Anime is traditionally separated into numerous release periods over a year. Several popular series premiere and return throughout the spring, fall, and winter seasons however, Demon Slayer season 2 lost its chance to premiere in the spring or summer. Fall 2021 or Winter 2021 are the only two options at this time, with the Fall season running from September through November.
The plot of Demon Slayer Season 2
The second season of Demon Slayer will be adapting the manga’s ‘Entertainment District’ storyline. Mugen Train takes place later.
So, unless you want to be spoiled, you’ll need to see the Demon Slayer movie before starting Season 2 of Demon Slayer. It’s a bold move to link canonical events to a film (a rarity in anime), but it’s important to know now unless you want to lose out on a significant portion of the storyline.
So, what do we have to look for in the story? Without giving too much away about the plot of the first season, Tanjiro, Zenitsu, and Inosuke were summoned to their first big mission as members of the Demon Slayer Corps at the ending of the first season.
Rengoku, a Hashira (elite Demon Slayer swordsman) member, is charged with escorting the trio including Tanjiro’s sister-turned-demon Nezuko. The events of the film revolve around Tanjiro and his companions’ attempts to overthrow the Lower One of the Twelve Moons, a demonic organization commanded by Muzan Kibutsuji, the original demon slayer of Tanjiro’s family.
Following the dramatic events of Mugen Train and the conclusion of the Infinity Train tale, Tanjiro, Hashira, and the Demon Slayer Corps will have to cope not only with the movie’s consequences but also with the rise of new and deadly adversaries.
The party travels to Yoshiwara in the second season, as depicted in the video below, a town full of dazzling lights and evil ambitions. Expect Tanjiro to come to battle with an Upper Moon or two.
