Demon Slayer Season 3: Release date, teaser, new characters, Blacksmith Village Arc story details and everything we know so far

Here’s everything we know so far about Demon Slayer Season 3: The Blacksmith Village Arc.

Demon Slayer Season 3 has been officially confirmed, following the conclusion of the Arc of District of pleasures of season 2. As readers of Koyoharu Gotouge’s hit manga series have come to expect, the third season will be called the Arc Village of Blacksmiths.

Although Ufotable, the animation studio behind the series, hasn’t revealed many details about season 3 because we are only at the beginning, many details are already known thanks to what we can obtain source material. We won’t be sharing any major spoilers in this guide, so don’t worry.

the Arc Village of Blacksmiths will be a series and, unlike the Arc du infinity train, there are no plans to make a film adaptation of it. Ufotable obviously has other plans.

Season 3 air date of Demon Slayer : When will the Arc Village des Forgerons be released?

Ufotable has not yet announced an official release date for season 3 of Demon Slayer. There is a good chance whether it will be released at the end of 2022 or the beginning of 2023but the COVID-19 pandemic may cause delays in the production of new episodes.

That being said, Ufotable is usually consistent with its work output. The first season of Demon Slayer debuted in the fall of 2019, the feature arc of the infinity train was released in Japanese cinemas in fall 2020; the arch of infinity train of the series began airing in fall 2021, and the arc District of pleasures was released in December 2021, so expect season 3 to come out in less than 2 years.

JapanFM will update you with the latest release date information as it becomes available.

Demon Slayer Season 3 Trailer: Has Ufotable Released It Yet?

The first teaser for season 3 of Demon Slayer features just a few key illustrations from the arc of the Blacksmiths Village. You can watch the first teaser above. The anime’s first full trailer is expected in summer 2022.

On April 26, Ufotable released a new trailer for season 3 of Demon Slayer. The 2:50 minute trailer features memorable moments from previous seasons of the anime series, and then she gives us a glimpse of the upcoming season.

The trailer begins with Koyoharu Gotouge making a new sword, presumably for Tanjiro. Next, we see Mitsuri Kanroji and Muichiro Tokito, the Hashiras who will play an important role in the Swordsman Village arc. Finally, we catch a glimpse of Tanjiro wielding his new sword during a fight.

The story of season 3 of Demon Slayer : What is the object of the arc of the Blacksmiths Village ?

Without going into a lot of details, season 3 of Demon Slayer will adapt the arc of the Blacksmiths Village from the popular series Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba by Koyoharu Gotouge. It is likely that she will cover manga chapters 100-127which corresponds to the arc of the District of pleasures (70 to 99). However, the 100th chapter is only half the story, so expect a fourth season.

The bow of Blacksmiths Village should feature Tanjiro going to the village to acquire a new weapon. The village is known to be the home of an ancient weapon, but it gets more complicated than that.

The end of the arc District of pleasures hinted at what the series will likely do beyond season 3 of Demon Slayer. Tengen is no longer involved, but he is still alive. Tengen told Iguro that his likely replacement for Hashira should be Tanjiro. From there, Tanjiro and the other Demon Slayers can finally tackle their ultimate target: Muzan Kibutsuji, the Demon King.

Of course, Tanjiro (played by Natsuki Hanae), Nezuko (Akari Kitou), Zenitsu (Hiro Shimono) and Inosuke (Yoshitsugu Matsuoka) will be back in the cast of the Swordsman Village Arc.

Netflix has not announced a release date for season 2 of Demon Slayerand with budget cuts for anime series following the huge loss of subscribers in the first quarter of 2022, season 3 is unlikely to hit the streaming service anytime soon.
