Demon Slayer was on its way to making this Halloween a whole lot spookier with its Mugen Train arc, but alas!
Due to Fuji TV’s coverage of Japan’s national House of Representatives election, the fourth episode of the Mugen Train arc will be delayed one week, from October 31 to November 7.
Similarly, all subsequent broadcasts of the series and streaming will be delayed by one week. As a result, international fans will have to wait for Funimation and Crunchyroll to stream this highly anticipated episode.
Due to the broadcast of the special election number “Live Election Sunday”, the broadcast of “TV Anime” Kimetsu no Yaiba “Infinite Train Edition” on October 31st (Sun) on the national Fuji TV series will be suspended.
The fourth episode will be broadcast on Sunday, November 7th.

You won’t be missing out on the Demon Slayer magic this week though!
The third episode of the seven-episode series retelling the Mugen Train incident will be released on schedule this Sunday, October 24.
While the franchise is making us wait for an entire week, they are definitely not stopping.
The upcoming Entertainment District Arc will air as a one-hour special on Japanese television on December 5. All of the magic and fights from this arc will be available to stream on Crunchyroll and Funimation.
We’ll have to get our breathing in check and patiently wait for the upcoming Demon Slayer episodes!

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 after— the murder of their family at the hands of a demon. Their hardship does not end there, as Nezuko’s life is spared only for her 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.
