It should be remembered that before the official start of the second season, there was a saga of seven chapters that summarized what was seen in the anime film, Mugen Train (“Night’s Watch: Infinite Train”).

Considering that there is still the high level of quality in the first episode that fans have come to expect, this order of episodes could mean a higher quality anime overall.

‘Entertainment District Arc’ is the eighth arc, and one of the most mind-blowing, of the original manga.
