Season 2 of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is definitely happening, it’s just a question of when. The anime’s latest movie was recently released with a record-breaking performance. Judging by the massive success of manga as well, season 2 will happen in 2021.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba was one of the best anime of the year 2019.
The story followed the journey of Tanjiro, a boy who lost most of his family to demons except his sister, Nezuko.
Nezuko, however, turns into a demon herself but does not attack Tanjiro after he manages to bring back her humanity to a certain extent.
This heartwarming tale of two siblings became extremely popular because of its lovable characters, intricately stunning animation, and soulful soundtrack.
After the release of season 1, the movie Demon Slayer: Mugen Train was released in October 2020 and crossed the $100 million mark in just 10 days. Ever since that, fans are eagerly waiting for a second season to release.
Despite being highly anticipated, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba season 2 is yet to receive an official announcement regarding its release. Fans will have to wait a bit more to re-witness the amazing energy that Demon Slayer carried.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba season 2 by Studio Ufotable will be released in the Fall of 2021. It has not been officially confirmed yet, but after analyzing the time gap between season 1 and the movie’s release, Fall 2021 is the date!
Considering the high popularity of the anime, it is doubtful that season 2 would get canceled. Especially after the film became the biggest IMAX title ever in Japan, it won’t be long until the anime officially renews.
What to Expect from Season 2
Season 1 adapted 52 chapters from the manga, and the movie, Demon Slayer: Mugen Train, covered the Infinity Train arc (Chapters 53-66).
Season 2 will continue from where the movie left off, and since the manga has already been concluded, there won’t be many fillers in the series either.
Most probably, the second season of Demon Slayer should cover from chapters 70 to 136, up to “The Hashira Training Arc.”
About Demon Slayer
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Koyoharu Gotoge.
Its publication in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump began in February 2016 with 19 collected tankōbon volumes released as of present.
In a world filled with demons and demon slayers, Kimetsu no Yaiba follows the lives of two siblings Tanjiro and Nezuko Kamado.
They persisted after a great tragedy — the murder of their family at the hands of a demon. Their hardship does not end there, as Nezuko is barely spared to live as a demon.
As the oldest sibling, Tanjiro vows to protect and cure his sister. The story traces the bond of this brother-sister or, better yet, demon slayer and demon combo against the odds of an arch antagonist and the society.Originally Written By Epic Dope
