The upcoming arc will focus a lot on Mitsuri Kanroji and Muichiro Tokito, the Hashira of the Mists, as they will face off against two Upper Moon Demons in the Swordsman Village. This arc will introduce the premiere and give some information about its past.
It’s an exciting arc as Mitsuri’s abilities are unique since his muscle density is far beyond that of an average human being.
During her fight against Hantengu on the 4th of the Upper Moon, she ends up activating her Demon Slayer Mark, which can only be done by a few people in this series. This fight is eagerly awaited by the entire fanbase due to its strength and the demon’s unique art, Blood Demon Art, which allows its emotions to manifest in physical form.
These fights and the focus on these two Hashira is why the new season’s coverage is centered on Mitsuri.
