If you’re caught up in the manga, you’ll know a lot about this upcoming arc. The tale marks demon slayeris the ninth arc overall and checks on Tanjiro as he heads towards fixing his sword. He arrives at Swordsmith Village to find that his usual contact has now disappeared, and Tanjiro’s ensuing investigation introduces him to two new hashira.
The first is Mitsuki Kanroji, the hashira of love. She is joined by Genya Shinazugawa and Tanjiro is sent in search of a weapon worthy of his skill in the village. But of course the fighters are watched all the time. The Upper Moons have their eye on Tanjiro these days, so the whole village is put in danger as the story goes.
As the second season drew to a close, fans of demon slayer knew that the anime would tackle the Swordsmith Village arc as soon as possible, but the question remained as to how. When the show wrapped up the first season, it transitioned to the big screen, first adapting the Mugen Train arc as a movie. This decision was a huge success because Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – Mugen Train is the highest-grossing film in Japan to date. It makes sense for the anime to continue its TV movie flip-flop, but that’s not what season three will do. The show is going to double this time around, so the only thing we need to know is when this new season will go live.
