‘Demon Slayer is one of the most popular anime series available on Netflix’s OTT platform. With an increasing number of spectators, the show’s popularity continues to grow. While fans are now watching the show on OTT, the show’s creators have just revealed Demon Slayer Season 2. However, fans are still curious about the show’s release date and whether it will be available on Netflix.
The film overpowered Spirited Away and Titanic as Japan’s highest-grossing film of all time. It was also the second-ever anime film to top the box office in the United States. According to box office records, the film was the first non-Hollywood film to ever rule the global box office in cinematic history. The film was also Japan’s official submission for the 93rd Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature Film.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, a popular shonen anime series, has been renewed for a second season, according to Aniplex. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train, a feature film based on the popular anime based on the manga series of the same name, was released in 2020. Season 2 of Demon Slayer is set in the Yoshiwara red-light district and will follow the Mugen Train anime film.
The manga for the anime above was well-received internationally, resulting in an on-screen adaptation. As a result, demon Slayer was turned into an anime series, with the first season premiering in 2019 with 26 episodes. The anime follows a young boy’s struggle to save his sister in a battle between demons and Humans.
While the producers haven’t confirmed or denied if the new season will cover the same terrain and follow the same events as the anime film, the concept of a recap doesn’t appear to be a bad one. Despite the film’s massive success and the belief that most fans had watched it, the COVID-19 pandemic prevented some people from seeing it. Season 2 is also rumored to include more details’ across up to eight episodes, in addition to addressing the events of Mugen Train.
It would be strange if no precondition is offered before the second season begins, given how the creators thrust fans right into the Mugen Train movie without explanation. If there is no recap, however, it suggests that viewers will be able to enjoy the new season without having to watch the movie first and a probable exclusivity for the second season.
Season 2 of Demon Slayer will premiere in 2021, although no precise date has been set. The announcement was confirmed by the anime’s official Twitter account in February 2021, along with some official art portraying Uzui, who would play a major role in the future season. On July 5, Aniplex published an English-subtitled trailer for Demon Slayer season 2.
The video did not reveal a release date, but it did announce the anime’s return in 2021. Aniplex also published a video on July 21 that featured some “key images” from the upcoming second season.
The latest instalment will be broadcast on Japanese television later this year. However, no specific date has been announced. Season 2 would air on over 30 channels in Japan (including Fuji Tv and Tokyo MX) due to the success of the “Demon Slayer” brand.
According to a Yahoo Japan story, they called Fuji Tv to inquire about a possible program modification, as the telecast of Demon Slayer Season 2 has been scheduled for 2021. However, they cannot season the date, and they did not exclude out a start in October 2021.
