Demon Slayer Entertainment District Arc: December 2021 Release, Updates

Demon Slayer has been a monumental hit over the last two years. It soared to new heights during the pandemic with the release of its spectacularly animated canonical film, Demon Slayer: Mugen Train.

Excitement is bubbling now as the most anticipated anime, “Demon Slayer: Entertainment District Arc,” arrives later this year.

This arc is the first proper continuation of Gotouge’s story adapted into the anime following the events of the Mugen Train arc.  A brief transitional period ties the two arcs together.

The addition of the Sound Hashira livens the atmosphere a bit, especially for those who will terribly miss Rengoku. Hopefully, he fares better than the Flame Hashira.

1. Release Date

“Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Entertainment District Arc” will be released on December 5, 2021. Crunchyroll and Funimation will stream the upcoming arc. The Entertainment District arc will have a maximum of 19 episodes.
