Demon Slayer Season 2 Entertainment District Arc Preview Trailer

New characters were introduced in a new teaser for Entertainment District Arc released on November 28 by the Demon Slayer franchise. Tengen Usui will be in charge of the next mission after the flame Hashira departure.

Based on the renowned manga by Koyoharu Gotouge, The Demon Slayer is a popular anime. There were 26 episodes of the first season, which was released in 2019.

As the story unfolds, we learn about Kamado Tanjiro, a young man whose family was massacred by demons and whose sister was turned into one by the demon king. He embarks on a mission to find a cure for his sister, while also learning how to combat demons and gaining new friends along the way.

In October 2020, the movie Demon Slayer: Mugen Train (Kimetsu no Yaiba: Kydai no Kizuna) was released. It was a huge hit, quickly surpassing $400 million, making it the highest-earning anime and Japanese film ever.

The Mugen Train’s enormous success prompted Funimation to create a seven-part TV series, which premiered on October 10. It delves deeper into The Flame Hashira Kyojuro Rengoku’s storyline.

Demon Slayer Season 2 Story Details

Season 2 of Demon Slayer picks up soon after The Mugen Train. The Mugen Train miniseries will serve as a precursor to the major story in the second season. The story will move to Yoshiwara, Japan’s famed red-light district, for the Entertainment District arc. Tengen Uzui and the Sound Hashira will hunt infamous demons in Yoshiwara. Daki, one of the Twelve Kizukis, will be a major opponent in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba’s Entertainment District Arc.

The characters will have to contend with the loss of Kyojuro Rengoku, the Flame Hashira, personal demons as well as actual ones, while deepening their relationships.

The official trailer for Demon Slayer season 2 was presented on Kimetsu-Sai Online: Anime 2nd Anniversary Festival.

Demon Slayer Season 2 Cast

For Demon Slayer’s second season, much of the original cast and staff will return. There’s Natsuki Hanae as Kamado Tanhiro, Hiro Shimon as Zenitsu Agatsuma, and Yoko Matsuoka as Inosuke Hashibira, the series’ demon slayer protagonists. Katsuyuki Konishi, best known for his roles in Fairy Tail and Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, will voice Tengen Uzui, the Sound Hashira. As a director, Haruo Sotozaki will also be back.

This season’s theme song will be performed by LiSA, who sang it in the first season. To begin and conclude the Mugen Train storyline in Season 2, LiSA has provided the music. The series’ first song, “Akeboshi,” can be heard before moving on to “Shirogane,” which is currently playing in the background.

In addition to their work on the first season of Demon Slayer, composers Yuki Kajiura (Sword Art Online) and Go Shiina (Tekken) will return to score the second season.
