As we continue to talk about potential new variants of COVID-19, there’s another demon to watch out for. The long-awaited release date for Demon Slayer Season 2 has been confirmed, and it’ll be slashin’ its way through to us on 5 December 2021 — but not without a little detour first.
Demon Slayer Season 2’s debut
As said previously, Demon Slayer Season 2 has been set for the Entertainment District. But company Funimation has announced that the smash-hit Mugen Train feature film will also be turned into a seven-episode series that will start airing on October 10. Well, at least our tears for Rengoku weren’t for nothing.
Fans may think that the series may be some sort of cheap cut to tease us into Season 2, but that’s not the case. The episode series will include “70 new scenes, new music tracks, new open and ending animation, episode previews and new theme songs.”
Given that Mugen Train is just under two hours long, seven 20-ish minute episodes would mean a lot more footage. And a lot more depressing moments.
For now, Funimation has announced that the Mugen Train arc will be available to stream on the Funimation website along with Hulu and Crunchyroll.
All of the build-ups would then lead to Demon Slayer Season 2, in the Entertainment District arc, which is set to air on Sunday, December 5.
Shaking the world with its grisly yet anguished hands, Demon Slayer remains a unique success in anime. There’s still a good amount of manga left for adaptation, so we’ll be seeing it around for a while.
For those who’ve not picked up the series, Demon Slayer was first serialized on Shueisha’s shōnen manga magazine Weekly Shōnen Jump in February 2016, but it was its debut on Netflix in 2019 that received critical acclaim and numerous awards. As of February 2021, the manga has over 150 million copies in circulation, making it one of the best-selling manga series of all time.
