Any news regarding Demon Slayer gets their fans excited, and the franchise loves to make the most of this and tease their fans.
Although the fans get angry, they do get something in return. This time it is the announcement of a much-awaited spin-off manga. School-based spin-offs of shows are very popular in anime and manga, and Demon Slayer is not planning to let down their fans either!
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba officially announced that a manga spin-off, Kimetsu Gakuen, will start on August 4th in Shueisha’s Saikyo Jump’s September issue.
“Kimetsu no Yaiba” latest spin-off “Kimetsu Gakuen! ] New serialization with the strongest jump!

The spin-off will be based on Demon Slayer’s Valentine Special anime shorts in a school setting. Natsuki Hokami, the creator of Gokutei Higuma, is in charge of the upcoming spin-off.
The Valentine Special consisted of the characters as students and teachers and served the specific theme of Valentine’s. However, unlike that, this series will have many more sub-themes and stories with a lot of comedy.
The official announcement of the spin-off manga came right after Demon Slayer staff pranked the fans by releasing the same promotional video again.
This tweet was made on the show’s official Twitter to remind people of the upcoming Season 2. Instead, fans mistook it for a new PV and were frustrated to find out that it was the old one.
They really got us there :’)
Even though there was nothing special about the PV, it was still flamboyant. (Get it?!)
It is very apparent that everyone has been anxiously and desperately waiting for the new PV or at least some Season 2 update (Get the hint Demon Slayer makers!!!!)
We deserve some kind of update after this, maybe a release date? Or a new visual? Let’s keep praying they give us something soon.
