Demon Slayer Swordsmith Village arc has plenty going, but what are the essentials to keep in mind?
Spring 2023 is here, and it brings with it arguably one of the most anticipated releases of the year in the form of Demon Slayer Swordsmith Village movie.
The anime adaption of Koyoharu Gotouge s’ manga Demon Slayer premiered in April 2019, and fast forward four years, and the series has gone on to achieve paramount success.
Whether it is the seasonal releases or the box office-smashing movie ‘Mugen Train,” Demon Slayer as an anime franchise has surpassed many aspirations and expectations.
Considering the incredible popularity, it is only natural for the fandom to be excited for the next installment in the series, which is the Demon Slayer Swordsmith Village movie.
Post the conclusion of the Demon Slayer Entertainment district arc, fans were hyped up for the Demon Slayer Swordsmith Village arc, which is all set to premiere on 9th April 2023.
As the movie hits the big screens and you rush to purchase a ticket, here is a rundown of all the important titbits you should know before watching Demon Slayer Swordsmith Village movie.
DEMON SLAYER SWORDSMITH VILLAGE WILL INTRODUCE NEW VILLAINS
One of Demon Slayer s’ biggest draws is the villains it has showcased, and the Demon Slayer Swordsmith Village arc will be no different as Hantengu & Gyokko are set to make their debut.
Hantengu & Gyokko are the main antagonist of the Demon Slayer Swordsmith Village and are affiliated with the Twelve Kizuki holding the position of Upper Fourth and Fifth Demon Moon members, respectively.
Hantengu was a thief in his previous life and appeared to carry on the persona with his frail look that sports two horns and a giant hump on his head.
He is mentally unstable and a coward but uses his human traits to get out of deadly situations.
Gyokko is considered the most monstrous of all Muzan s’ soldiers, as we see in the promotion reels wherein his infant-like hands cradling the side of his head is apparent.
To go along with his craziness, Gyokko also comes with a sadistic personality and gets easily offended by people who downplay his art.
Prior to being turned into a demon, Gyokko enjoyed collecting fish carcasses and was emotionless when his parents died by drowning.
Hantengu & Gyokko will take on take on Tanjiro and the rest of the Demon Slayer Corp in the Demon Slayer Swordsmith Village arc.
KANROJI WILL PLAY A CRUCIAL ROLE
Hashiras are top-ranking combatants of the Demon Slayer Corp, and more often, they are serious characters possessing incredible power.
While the group mainly consists of strong male characters, Kanroji Mitsuri is the odd one out as she is an emotional and jovial individual.
But do not take her happy-go-lucky attitude for granted as she is equally powerful Hashira utilizing her love breathing style.
She also uses a unique whip-like pink Nichirin Sword coupled with her superhuman flexibility is used to slay demons.
If that does not convince you, Mitsuri completed her Final Selection within a mere six months, which according to Rengoku, was outstanding.
Kanroji Mitsuri will have a crucial role in the movie as she, alongside Tanjiro, looks to beath Hantengu & Gyokko.
NEZUKO UNLOCKS NEW POWERS
Demon Slayer s’ premise has been centered around Tanjiro s’ mission to turn Nezuko back into a human.
In the beginning, Nezuko was just an unfortunate girl who turned into a demon and was stuck in a box controlling her hunger for humans. Still, as the series has progressed, she has become an important fighting support for Tanjiro.
Her blood Demon Art is unique, as we saw it against the fight with Rui, and she also was able to heal Tengen.
However, the Demon Slayer Swordsmith Village arc will see Nezuko unlocking new power, which could put her life in danger. Also, we will get to know why Muzan turned her into a demon rather than just killing her.
KOKUSHIBO MAKES AN APPEARANCE
In the final scene of To the Swordsmith Village movie, we get a big reveal in the form of Kokushibo, who is the number one rank Demon and also the right-hand man of Muzan.
Apart from his scary three eyes, Kokushibo shares a similar birthmark with all the Demon Slayers, and in particular, its pattern is the same as that of Tanjiro when he uses the Sun Breathing Technique.
Kokushibo will be voiced by Ryotaro Okiayu.
DEMON SLAYER SWORDSMITH VILLAGE MOVIE RUN TIME
Demon Slayer Swordsmith Village will adapt 30 chapters (98 to 127) from the manga, which is double compared to The Mugen train movie (Chapters 54 to 69).
The Mugen Train Movie ran from 1 Hour and 57 minutes hence it’s expected Demon Slayer Swordsmith Village movie will clock in and around that 2-hour mark.
Regular director Haruo Sotozaki will resume his role and will be at the helm of producing jaw-dropping fight scenes.
