Demon Slayer Reportedly Getting a Spin-off Novel About Rengoku

After a lot of bloodshed and pain, the Demon Slayer Corp took down Muzan and put an end to his millennia-long reign. With this objective out of the way, the Demon Slayer manga started building up to the concluding chapter, which drops on 17th May 9:30 am.

Even though the manga is ending, fans can rejoice as more Demon Slayer content is on the way. Reportedly a spin-off story revolving around Kyojuro Rengoku, the Flame Hashira, is on the way and will soon be officially announced.

As reported by @KenXyro on Twitter, a spin-off story drawn by Hirano Ryouji is on the way. The story will center around Kyojuro Rengoku, the Flame Hashira.

About Rengoku (Manga Spoilers)

Rengoku is a fan-favorite character who was introduced in the Rehabilitation Training Arc. He wasn’t seen in action till the Mugen Train Arc, which is sadly also the arc where he dies. Many agree that a character with this much potential was killed off so early in the story.

As we know from the manga, the Kyojuro family has a somewhat dysfunctional relationship. Despite this, Rengoku’s personality shines as bright as the sun and can be considered more positive than Tanjiro’s personality.

Shueisha hasn’t announced this news officially, but it should be included in the upcoming issue of the Weekly Shonen Jump.

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.
