We’ve definitely been lacking some Demon Slayer from our lives and like a genie in a bottle, Funimation has blessed us with not one but two demon slayer specials all set to premiere on October 7, 2021.
Debuting only days before the premiere of Demon Slayer‘s Mugen Train arc are the two recompilation specials that shall cover the exciting Asakusa arc and the exhilarating Tsuzumi Mansion arc.
If you’re having trouble remembering these arcs, worry not, as these special omnibus episodes will provide us with a recap of each of their respective arcs.
We’ve been promised with never-before-seen footage with this coupled release – talk about getting two for one!
There’s more good news. We’re here to refresh your memory about the three Demon Slayer specials that hit the silver screen last year with extra footage and extra “this is why we love Demon Slayer” energy.
The three special episodes covered three primary arcs: Sibling’s Bond, Mt. Natagumo, and Hashira Meeting. Lucky for us, these three recompilations will be updated with even more footage, thanks to the release of the upcoming specials!
Now we have to watch all five TV specials to be a certified Demon Slayer stan.
There is no such thing as too much Demon Slayer. The arcs releasing on October 7 are intended to tie the Unwavering Resolve arc and the following Entertainment District arc together.
With Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba season 2 premiering in December 2021, let’s get caught up on what’s been happening in Tanjiro’s world with these anime TV specials on Funimation.
About Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba
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.
