If you haven’t heard of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, you must be very new to the anime industry. The series has become Japan’s biggest release over the past decade, and Tanjiro has taken the anime to new heights. From cinema to television, demon slayer breaks records and fans will never turn down new releases. And if you live in the United States, you’ll be able to get your hands on special light novels starting this fall.
The publisher confirmed the big news recently to the delight of Internet users. Viz Media has announced plans to release three demon slayer light novels in English. The first book will go live in fall 2022, and the entire collection includes The flower of happiness, one-winged butterfly, and signs of the wind.

If you are unfamiliar with these novels, they are mostly anthologies containing a handful of stories. The flower of happiness contains five chapters which include a wedding, a child sacrifice and even a fortune teller. One-winged butterfly has six different stories to read, and signs of the wind has five more.

As you can imagine, fans of demon slayer are happy to have this ad on hand. Creator Koyoharu Gotouge ended his manga a while back, so demon slayer no longer publishes weekly updates for fans. With the anime team hard at work behind the scenes, that means there’s no new live content for fans, but this acquisition will help keep readers satiated in the US in the meantime. And hopefully season three will be online in about a year.
