‘Demon Slayer’, third season: characters and plot of one of the anime of the moment

Last Sunday, February 13, the last chapter of the second season of demon slayer (Kimetsu no Yaiba) and the third season was confirmed. aniplexthe company responsible for the production, along with the work of the animation studio ufotable, released a video in which he confirmed the suspicions. One of the anime of the moment will continue to be adapted. Although a release date was not specified, two faces were revealed that will be key.

At the end of the first season, the pillars were introduced within the Demon Slayer story. It is the elite group within the demon hunters. A select and small one: for decades they have lost more fights than they have won. Since they are fights to the death, few are still standing while other younger ones are still preparing. It is the case of Tanjirou Kamado, Hashibira Inosuke and Zenitsu Agatsuma, the protagonists of the story. From Demon Slayer: The Infinity Trainthe movie that gave continuity to the first season, the relationship between the main characters and the demon hunting specialists began to change.

Kyojuro Rengokuthe pillar of the flame, sponsored Tanjirou, Inosuke and Zenitsu. Through his abilities he not only showed them the potential of that elite group; also, with his final destiny, he revealed to them that it is not enough to be good to defeat the Upper Moons, the most powerful group of demons. That, traumatic because it involved the death of Rengoku, activated in the protagonists a sense of commitment and effort that until now had not been so evident.

Some of that growth played out during the second season, with the characters improving their fitness and their various abilities and breaths. This took that narrative sense to another level, when Tanjirou, Inosuke and Zenitsu were able to face an Upper Moon and defeat it, with the help of Tengen Uzui, the pillar of sound They are the ones who cut off the head of the demons and not the pillar trying to do it alone. It seems like a minor detail but it is quite symbolic in terms of character development.

In this context comes the third season.
