The adaptation of “Entertainment District Arc” is the eighth arc of the manga created by Koyoharu Gotouge, as well as one of the most amazing in the original story.
Since its premiere in 2019, the adventures of Tanjiro Kamado, a teenager who becomes a demon hunter after his family is killed by one of these beings, have become the favorites of millions of fans around the world, who waited looking forward to the new episodes.
The first season of “Demon Slayer” took place mainly in rural areas, but by the second installment, the characters will be closer to urban areas, with a mysterious woman, seen in the first teaser, as a presumed enemy.
The second part of the anime will cover the story known as ‘Entertainment District Arc’, a memorable arc of the manga, in addition to the longest, that infiltrates demon hunters in an urban district, where people do not know anything about demons and where Tanjiro, Zenitsu, and Inosuke team up with Tengen Uzui, the Pillar of Sound, to help him find his wives.

For “Demon Slayer,” this arc is critical, as it leaves the episodic missions behind and begins to further tie the fights together to lay the groundwork for the final game. The ‘Red Light District Arc’, which takes place in the immediate aftermath of the tragic and revealing events of “Mugen Train”, also unlocks new powers for Tanjiro and Nezuko and strengthens their relationship with Zenitsu and Inosuke, their fellow travelers. training and friends.
Starting with “Mugen Train” you could also expect a visit to the family of Rengoku, the late Pillar of Flame, more appearances from Akaza and in response, from the most powerful hunters in the guild to avenge their fallen comrade.
The song heard in the intro of “Kimetsu no Yaiba” is called “Gurenge” or “Red Lotus” by the Japanese singer LiSA. This is a rock song that is inspired by Tanjiro and Nezuko’s journey, and how they have the strength to keep going despite obstacles.
While the music video for “Gurenge” lacks the fights seen in the series; LiSA can be seen singing while some dancers characterized as demons perform pirouettes. The song was a huge hit in Japan where it reached number 1 on the Billboard Hot Animation of the Year chart in 2020.
