Since some of the best animes will be released this year, the year 2021 is likely to be the best for anime fans. With its plot and characters, the storey of Tanjiro Kamado and his younger sister Nezuko, who live in Taisho-era Japan, has enthralled all anime fans. The critically acclaimed 2019 season, which shattered box office records, is now streaming on Netflix.
Season 2 of Demon Slayer is coming quickly. The announcement that the Mugen Train movie will be released in the West soon has given us a better understanding of when the next full chapter of the hit anime series will be streaming on sites including Funimation and Crunchyroll.
But that’s not what we had in mind for Tanjiro’s triumphant return. There’s also a trailer to look forward to, in addition to rumours of a Demon Slayer 2 release date. It’s our first look at the 2021 season, and chances are you haven’t seen it yet – so keep reading.
For those who aren’t sure whether to watch Mugen Train or Demon Slayer 2, there’s also a short clarification. Yes, to quickly explain the issue. It’s a must-read for the new season, as well as a canonical continuation of the Demon Slayer Corps’ exploits. More on that – and something else you may like to know – can be found in our guide to Demon Slayer season 2.
Is Demon Slayer Season 2 releasing anytime sooner?
As for other anime, the release date for Demon Slayer season 2 is still uncertain. For the time being, the only public statement is that the next season will premiere in 2021.
Anime is traditionally split into many release periods over the course of a calendar year. Several popular shows made their debuts or come back in the spring, autumn, and winter seasons, however Demon Slayer season 2 was unable to make it through the spring. The original series aired from April to September 2019, but unless a new release date is announced soon, Fall or Winter 2021 seems to be the most likely.
Season 2 of Demon Slayer is expected to debut in September/October if this is the case. Based on the timing of other anime releases during this time, such as Attack on Titan, a Winter 2021 window will mean a rough December release date.
Before that, many fans may have heard of the Mugen Train movie. After debuting in Japan in October 2020, it will be launched in the United States on April 23. It will be eligible for digital purchase on June 22. According to this detail, Season 2 of Demon Slayer will premiere in the second half of 2021.
Need to watch Mugen Train to understand the season 2 of Demon Slayer?
Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s second season will adapt the ‘Entertainment District’ manga series. Mugen Train follows Mugen Train in the source content. If you don’t want to be spoiled, you can watch the Demon Slayer film before starting Season 2 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. This is a dangerous move for connecting canonical events with a film (rare anime events), but you must be aware of it now, unless a major portion of the plot is missed.
So, what do we expect from the rest of the story? Tanjiro, Zenitsu, and Inosuke were summoned to their first major assignment as part of the Demon Slayer Corps, without giving too much away about the plot of the first season.
Rengoku, a Hashira (Elite Demon Slayer swordsman) member, and the Nezuko Sister, towed by Tanjiro’s sister, accompany the Trio. Tanjiro and his comrades attempt to overthrow the Lower One of the Twelve Moons, a supernatural organisation led by Muzan Kibutsuji, the original demon and slayer of Tanjiro’s ancestors.
Following the disastrous events of Mugen Train and the end of the Infinity Train saga, Tanjiro, Hashira, and the Demon Slayer Corps will have to deal with not only the backlash from the film, but also the introduction of new enemies.
The party travels to Yoshiwara in the second season, as seen in the trailer below, a town full of bright lights and dark desires. Expect Tanjiro to come into confrontation with an Upper Moon or two, given the fertile ground for demons and the Sound Hashira (Tengen Uzui) in tow.
Season 2 of Demon Slayer trailer: first look at the upcoming season
The first trailer for Demon Slayer Season 2 is now available to watch. Inosuke is seen charging away in one scene portraying the Demon Slayer Corps’ visit to Yoshiwara’s entertainment area, and the Sound Hashira is given special notice. Might he accompany Tanjiro, Inosuke, and Zenitsu, as Rengoku did during the Infinity Train arc, and lead them?
However, no further sneak peeks can be scheduled until the season.
Season 2 cast of Demon Slayer
The main Demon Slayer voice cast seems to be returning for Season 2 based on the teaser – at least in the original, subtitled version. The English dub is yet to be announced.
Natuski Hanae (Tanjiro), Akari Kito (Nezuko), Hiro Shimono (Zenitsu), and Yoshitsugu Matusoka (Inosuke) are all expected to return. Other secondary characters, such as Tengen Uzui and Shinobo, are likely to appear. Muzan Kibutsuji (voiced by Toshihiko Seki), the main antagonist, is also scheduled to feature.
Where to find Demon Slayer season 2 to watch and stream?
Season 2 of Demon Slayer is yet to find a home in the West. The first season, on the other hand, was available on Crunchyroll, Funimation, Hulu, and Netflix in the United States, as well as Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Netflix in the United Kingdom.
Crunchyroll and Funimation, two main streaming platforms, are expected to have the latest subbed episodes soon after they air in Japan. Netflix may also be interested in acquiring distribution rights in the future.
While we are awaiting, let’s hope that we will be as dope as the Hashiras one day. Stay informed with the insights with us and we will surely take you to the latest updates of the Demon Slayer season 2 journey.
