You might recognize who I’m talking about if you’re an anime night owl who ignores his sleep routine to watch his favorite shows. Make an educated guess! A short man in a long-sleeved kimono wielding a samurai sword and carrying his adorable tiny big-eyed sister on his back? Is this something you’ve heard before? 

Yes, we’re talking about ‘Tanjiro,’ our favorite Demon Slayer who instills fear in his foes. Kimetsu no Yaiba, based on Koyoharu Gotoge’s Weekly Shonen Jump manga of the same name, has been generating a lot of attention among anime fans and critics, with the first five episodes actually running in Japanese theaters.

Season 1- The Beginning of A Fantastic Journey Filled with Adventure

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is an anime series based on the manga series of the same name by Koyoharu Gotouge, which was written and illustrated by him. On June 4, 2018, the anime television series adaptation by studio Ufotable was revealed in Weekly Shonen Jump.

The first season was broadcast on Tokyo MX, GTV, GYT, BS11, and other channels from April 6 to September 28, 2019, and adapted the first seven volumes (chapters 1–54) of the manga series. The anime was directed by Haruo Sotozaki, with screenplays written by the Ufotable team. 

The music was composed by Yuki Kajiura and Go Shiina, while the character designer is Akira Matsushima. Hikaru Kondo is the director and producer. The opening theme is Lisa’s “Gurenge,” while the ending theme is FictionJunction feat. Lisa’s “from the brink.” “Kamado Tanjir no Uta” () by Go Shiina featuring Nami Nakagawa is the episode 19 ending theme. 

Tanjiro is depicted as a kindhearted man with a sense of smell that is superior to that of a normal human, allowing him to achieve near-supernatural feats such as sniffing demon blood. Tanjiro returns home after selling charcoal in town to discover that his entire family has been murdered by a demon, with the exception of Nezuko. Tanjiro, who is also a phenomenal runner, sprints to the neighboring town. Nezuko, on the other hand, attacks him. 

They’re accosted by Giyu Tomioka, one of the show’s titular demon slayers, while Tanjiro tries to fend her off. He reveals that Nezuko has transformed into a demon and attempts to behead her with his Nichirin Blade, which is the only weapon capable of decapitating a demon. Tomioka effortlessly knocks out Tanjiro as he tries to protect Nezuko. But then something strange happens: Nezuko, whose demon nature should make her want to eat everyone, including her brother, intervenes to protect him.

Rather than killing Nezuko, Tomioka knocks her out. Following Nezuko’s reawakening, Tomioka encourages Tanjiro, who wishes to heal his sister, to seek out Sakonji Urokodaki, who later becomes Tanjiro’s swordmaster. Urokodaki instructs Tanjiro in the Breath of Water style of swordsmanship, which primarily impacts the manner of assaults a swordsman employs in order to assist him in becoming a demon hunter and preparing for the terrible trial known as the Final Selection, which is an important part of that procedure. Urokodaki, on the other hand, eventually stops training Tanjiro and assigns him the near-impossible task of cutting through a boulder.

Urokodaki later confesses that he is remorseful for the deaths of two of his students, Makomo and Sabito, who perished at the Final Selection, and that he is trying to spare Tanjiro from the same fate. The ghosts of Makomo and Sabito appear to assist Tanjiro in splitting the boulder in half. Urokodaki sends the child to the last round of the competition, where he defeats the demon who killed Makomo and Sabito. Only four swordsmen remain at the end of the trial, two of whom we’ll discuss in greater detail later. Tanjiro utilizes his acute sense of smell to choose an ore that will be transformed into his own Nichirin Sword.

Tanjiro, Demon Slayer

Tanjiro’s Nichirin Sword is brought to him after several days. Depending on who wields the blade, it takes on a distinct color. Tanjiro’s blade turns black, which is a cursed hue because those who wield it don’t live long.

Tanjiro and Nezuko (who are confined to a box during the day because sunlight kills demons) embark on their first assignment, which is relayed by the former’s Kasugaigarasu, a crow companion that provides Tanjiro missions. Urokodaki tells Tanjiro that the progenitor of all demons is a demon named Muzan Kibutsuji, who has an eerie likeness to Michael Jackson. 

That suggests he might be able to help Nezuko recover. Tanjiro’s journey eventually brings him to Asakusa, Tokyo, where he encounters Kibutsuji, who is living as a human, even having a wife and child. The devil, on the other hand, quickly demonstrates his capability and dexterity by using his talents to destroy anyone who stands in his path.

Tanjiro encounters Tamayo and Yushiro after an altercation with Kibutsuji goes bad. Despite the fact that they are both demons, they are actively working against Kibutsuji because they are not under his control like other demons. Tamayo says that by using the blood of the Twelve Demon Moons, enormously powerful monsters who have been specially empowered by Kibutsuji, she may be able to transform someone from a demon back into a human. 

Two reasonably powerful demons assault Tanjiro, Nezuko, Tamayo, and Yushiro, and they barely survive. They decide to split ways, with Tanjiro pursuing the demons’ blood. He’s only killed one so far, Kyogai/Drum Demon, who is one of the weakest of the 12 and had his number taken away by Kibutsuji.

Demon Slayers Make For Odd Companions

Tanjiro has teamed up with two of the other demon hunters who passed the Final Selection alongside him along the way. Zenitsu Agatsuma, the first, begins as a coward since he is terrified of fighting demons. He may, however, use his Breath of Lightning style when he falls asleep or passes out, but he only knows one form (which he has mastered).

He’s really fast and a major force to be reckoned with when he uses that method. In addition, rather than a crow, his bird buddy is a sparrow named Ukogi. He’s also a sucker for girls, and he falls head over heels with Nezuko at first sight. Inosuke Hashibiri, who is a bit of a berserker, joins them.

The two-sword-wielding warrior strips down to his underwear and hides his face behind a boar’s head mask, which others regard as feminine and attractive. His signature move is the Breath of Beast, which he created on his own. Despite his gruff attitude, Inosuke appears to love compliments and is improving his ability to operate in a group. It’s unknown if he has a Kasugaigarasu, although it doesn’t appear that he does at this time.

There's a Lot to Kimetsu no Yaiba's Demons

The demons in Kimetsu no Yaiba are surrounded by a lot of worldbuilding. To begin with, demons gain strength by devouring people, and those with rare blood are particularly tasty. Second, devils despise wisteria and will go to any length to avoid it. This indicates that being near the plant provides some protection.

Third, demons have a curse that bans them from speaking about Kibutsuji or even pronouncing his name, with the exception of Tamayo and Yushiro. As a result, you will die quickly and brutally. Fourth, demons can use powerful Blood Demon Arts, which are similar to magic. 

These tactics have mostly differed amongst monsters, resulting in a wide range of intriguing and character-specific skill sets. The concentration on the backstories of the creatures Tanjiro hunts is one of the more interesting aspects of Kimetsu no Yaiba. For example, Kyogai/Drum Demon is revealed to have been a failing writer whose work and life were completely destroyed by an unknown individual whom he admired.

The man accuses Kyogai of simply staying at home and playing his Tsuzumi drums during the ridicule, a feature that is included in his demonic image. His rooms revolve when he hits those drums, and a gigantic claw scrapes the area directly in front of him, which is where his Blood Demon Art is. 

After their hard battle, the demon slayer compliments Tanjiro on his ability to play his drum and use the Blood Demon Art that comes with it. Tanjiro is known for showing sympathy to those he has killed, and as Kyogai’s body vanishes, he weeps, overcome by the realization that his gift has finally been recognized. Kyogai isn’t the only demon who suffers from this. 

Instead, the anime devotes a significant amount of time to flesh out the backstories of its more humanoid demons, transforming them into more than soulless beasts and Tanjiro’s sword fodder. Although deprived, these demons are nonetheless capable of genuine emotion, which adds to Tanjiro’s desire to undo demonization.

Taisho Secret: Stick Around After the Credits

Following the conclusion of each episode, there is a short piece of one of two types. The first is called “Taisho Secret,” and it usually contains tidbits of information regarding Kimetsu no Yaiba’s reality. Short, funny Kimetsu no Yaiba high school portions set in another reality are also included; these have no influence on the show.

Both types of parts are usually rather entertaining, and they provide a welcome break from the dramatic, tragic, and violent episodes. The program is currently at the “Natagumo Mountain Arc,” in which Tanjiro and his two companions battle the Spider Family, a formidable gang of demons led by one of the Twelve Moons. 

Zenitsu was bitten by Older Brother Spider’s minions, and the venom from the bite is supposedly fatal, although his destiny was left unresolved in the most recent episode. In the meantime, Tanjiro and a gravely injured Inosuke are battling the demon Father Spider. The series is heating up, and there will undoubtedly be many more great clashes before the first season concludes.

Season 2- The Crisis on The Mugen Train Continues

The hit manga series Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba by Koyoharu Gotouge may have ended, but the anime adaptation is still going strong, with a second season set to debut in 2021. The Demon Slayer anime was a smash sensation in Japan and worldwide, with Tanjiro Kamado’s mission to save his Demon sister.

Nezuko  having a sympathetic and accessible protagonist.  Season 1 ended with the promise of even more adventure and electrifying fantasy fight sequences, setting the stage for the Demon Slayer: Mugen Train film. Fans will surely want to see the film because its canonical tale has major repercussions, and Season 2 will pick up immediately after the events of the film.

Who will be in Demon Slayer Season 2?

According to Crunchyroll, the whole cast of “Demon Slayer” Season 1 and “Mugen Train” will reprise their roles in Season 2. Natsuki Hanae (Tanjiro), Akari Kitô (Nezuko), Hiro Shimono (Zenitsu Agatsuma), and Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (Inosuke Hashibira) are among the Japanese voice performers.

Zach Aguilar, Abby Trott, Aleks Le, and Bryce Papenbrook are their English counterparts. Tengen Uzui (Katsuyuki Konishi / Ray Chase), the newest member of the group, will make an appearance, as will the primary antagonist Muzan Kibutsuji (Toshihiko Seki / Greg Chun).

When the English voice cast was first announced, Aguilar spoke with Aniplex of America about how he felt when he found out he had gotten the part.” To say the very least, I was ecstatic to learn I’d gotten the part of Tanjiro,” he remarked. “As a fan of the show, I’m ecstatic to be a part of such a lovely animation.”  I’m giving this character my all, and I’m excited to follow Tanjiro on his adventure! “. It’s clear that the entire cast — both English and Japanese — takes their parts seriously, and the show is thrilling in either language.

The Demon Slayer Corps' Stakes are Raised by Mugen Train.

Demon Slayer Corps

Tanjiro, Inosuke, and Zenitsu board a train together after being ordered to help the Flame Hashira, Rengoku, in investigating the disappearances of people and fellow Demon Slayers who have boarded this specific locomotive. By learning under the Hashira, whom the boys instantly revere after seeing Rengoku in action.

Tanjiro aspires to enhance his own unique Hinokami Kagura method — which appears to have ties to Flame Breathing. The proud Hashira and his new young trainees are promptly bewitched into a deep sleep as a suspicious conductor comes through to punch their tickets. Enmu, a lower-rank member of the Twelve Kizuki, utilizes his Blood Demon Art to put the passengers to sleep for good, allowing his pupils to infiltrate their victims’ dreams. The victim will never wake up if the intruder damages the target’s spiritual essence. 

Tanjiro’s dream is all he’s ever wanted, whilst Inosuke’s and Zenitsu’s dreams are absurd fancies played for laughs. In an alternate universe, the young Demon Slayer finds himself in a world where his family was never slain, and Nezuko is still alive. He is suspicious of slight inconsistencies, but he dismisses signals from the real Nezuko, who is attempting to awaken him. Rengoku fights this new menace alone, with Tanjiro seriously injured and Inosuke hopelessly outclassed. The Flame Hashira is mortally injured by the Upper-Rank Demon after a long and dramatic battle.

Still, when the dawn rises, Akaza runs to save himself, while Tanjiro rages that Rengoku is the legitimate winner of the battle because he protected everyone while the demon fled as soon as the night’s advantage vanished. Rengoku delivers some words of encouragement to Tanjiro and his friends in his closing hours. If his would-be apprentice wishes to learn more about Hinokami Kagura, the dying warrior advises him to seek out the previous Flame Hashira, Rengoku’s father. Inosuke pushes Tanjiro to keep moving on despite his feelings of helplessness in the face of such a tremendous foe.

Season 2 of Demon Slayer Will Usher in a New Era

For Tanjiro and his fellow Demon Slayers, the events of Demon Slayer: Mugen Train was a brutal dose of reality. Hashira, who appeared to be unstoppable, was defeated by an Upper-Rank Demon who was not even the strongest of Muzan’s soldiers.

The lads must quickly improve their strength because the next time Akaza or another Upper-Rank emerges, they may not have a Hashira to protect them. Tanjiro now has a lot to prove, bearing the weight of Rengoku’s legacy and remorse for his death. Expect the young hero to see his honorary master’s family fulfill his last desire. Unfortunately, the deceased Hashira’s father is a ruthless and cynical man who is unlikely to help another Demon Slayer, let alone the one his son died protecting. Despite this, Tanjiro is eager to learn his one-of-a-kind technique in order to honor Rengoku, save Nezuko, and beat Muzan, who has placed a target on Tanjiro’s back.

Emu's Lower Moon, Demon Slayer's Danger

When Tanjiro realizes that his dream isn’t real because of Nezuko’s blood, he decides that the only way to wake up is to die in the dream. With steeled resolve, Tanjiro abandons his family, realizing that the past cannot be reversed, and fights Enmu when he awakes. Tanjiro repeatedly defeats the villain’s Blood Demon Art by performing the difficult chore of turning his blade on himself to reawaken.

After the remainder of the team awakens from their dreams, Rengoku, Zenitsu, as well as Nezuko protect the sleeping passengers while Tanjiro and Inosuke look for and murder Enmu. Tanjiro and Inosuke destroy Enmu with near-flawless collaboration, even after the demon reveals that he has fused himself to the train. Unfortunately, Tanjiro is injured in the process, rendering him unable to fight when further trouble in the form of Akaza arrives. Akaza ranked third among the Twelve Kizuki, is one of the most powerful Demons on the planet.

After the Season 2 Finale, the Most Perplexing Questions About Demon Slayer The “Entertainment District” arc of Demon Slayer Season 2 recently concluded on a pleasant note. Not only were Upper-Rank demons defeated for the first time in a century, but the Hashira Tanjiro and his companions were assisting did not perish; Tanjiro was able to contribute his weight to the struggle and rescue the day. Having said that, there are still a lot of loose ends to tie up.  

The Demon Slayer Corps will still be a problem for Kibutsuji Muzan as well as the rest of the Kizuki, but there’s more. There were various hints during Season 2 as to what to expect in the future. There have been a number of additional occurrences that appear to be unique to this season but have baffled viewers. In light of these suggestions, here are some of the most pressing questions that Demon Slayer fans are eager to have answered.

How Did Tengen Uzui Come To Have Three Wives?

Tengen Usui’s marriages elicit a lot of questions from Demon Slayer fans, whether it’s out of jealousy or curiosity. He managed to win the hearts of three separate women and marry each of them. It’s difficult to understand how this is feasible unless he’s some sort of harem protagonist.

On the one hand, there are issues about how Tengen met all of these ladies, how they all fell in love with him, and whether or not having a polygamous relationship is even allowed in Japan (it isn’t). His situation, on the other hand, is immensely enviable to other characters, as Gyutaro demonstrated by clawing his own face out of jealousy. Meanwhile, viewers are left perplexed as to how Tengen’s condition came to be.

Who is the Upper-Rank Six Demon's New Mystery Demon?

Daki and Gyutaro aren’t the first Kizukis in Demon Slayer to be given the moniker Upper-Rank Six. A passing demon deprived them of their humanity when they were humans dying on the street. The pupils of this demon’s eyes are formed like the characters for “Upper Rank” (Jogen) and “Six” (Roku), according to a close examination. 

This is not just a new Kizuki, but his current whereabouts are unclear. When he converted Daki and Gyutaro into demons, he was in the Upper Sixth; thus, he could have been overthrown or exalted since then. It’s most likely the latter, given how much of a thing Demon Slayer made of his debut. If that’s the case, Tanjiro and co. may expect to face this strong demon in the not-too-distant future.

Who Was the Mysterious Man Daki Saw?

Daki Muzan girl white hair

Daki had a bizarre vision while fighting Tanjiro. It “did remind” her of yet another demon slayer who had asked her similar questions while berating her for her indiscriminate slaughter and destruction. The only difficulty was that Daki had never met this mysterious individual and hence had no recollection of him. She reasoned that these recollections weren’t hers but rather Muzan’s.

This makes sense because the Upper-Rank demons all rely on Muzan’s blood to gain their strength. In this way, Daki is one with Muzan, so it’s plausible to presume she shares his memories. The identity of this demon slayer, on the other hand, remains a mystery. If Muzan is troubled to remember him like this, he was probably a significant figure in his life. Whatever this man did, learning more about him in Season 3 of Demon Slayer should be a highly anticipated event.

Season 3 - The Search for Endless Power

Despite their progress, Tanjiro and the heroes have demonstrated that they still have much to learn. Tanjiro was able to combine Sun Breathing with Water Breathing in Season 2 to alleviate the strain of the former. This is, however, a crutch for him; if he wants to combat tougher Kizuki and, eventually, Muzan, he’ll have to learn how to employ Sun Breathing in its purest form.

Tanjiro’s companions also demonstrate how they may improve. While Zenitsu’s lone attack is efficient, it is reaching its limits. If he wants to be useful in future fights, he may need to expand his arsenal. On the other hand, Inosuke’s versatility, while useful, does not change the reality that he is incapable of fighting high-level demons alone. Nezuko’s demon abilities, on the other hand, appear to be steadily improving.

What Happened in Season 2 of Demon Slayer Sets the Stage for Season 3?

the beginning

When Iguro Obanai arrives, he pays Tengen a backhanded compliment, emphasizing how bad it is that his fellow Hashira has been forced to face the “weakest” of the Upper-Rank demons. On a more serious note, he chastises Tengen for resigning rather than fighting to the bitter end.

During Tanjiro’s trial, he mentioned how important the Demon Slayer Corps’ goal was to him. Iguro is similarly taken aback when he learns that Tanjiro has survived the conflict. Tengen claims that the Serpent Hashira is particularly fond of Tanjiro. In any case, his unexpected presence has viewers wondering who he is, what he wants from Tanjiro, why he admires the Demon Slayer Corps so much, and what the snake around his neck means.

What Happened in Season 2 of Demon Slayer Sets the Stage for Season 3?

After the thrilling finale of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba’s second season, it’s time to think about what new Hell Tanjiro and the gang will face in Season 3’s “Swordsmith Village” arc. After the first killing of an Upper-Rank demon in 100 years, the “Entertainment District” storyline came to a close on a happy note.

The Demon Slayer Corps’ leader, Kagaya Ubuyashiki, forecasts that fate is about to take a drastic turn, implying that the worst is yet to come in the struggle against Muzan Kibutsuji’s demons. 

Despite being dominated by the struggle against Gyutaro and Daki, Season 2 left the Demon Slayer Corps with a number of unanswered questions. The victory over Upper Six proved costly after Tengen Uzui’s retirement since the Corps is now short two Hashira. Given that the war against the “lowly” Upper Six wrecked a whole town and lost the Corps another Hashira, the actual battles have plainly yet to begin as Demon Slayer advances into its next inevitable confrontation, according to Iguro Obanai. Here are the essential narrative threads that Season 3 will almost certainly have to resolve.

Tanjiro Needs A New Sword (Again)

Tanjiro Kamado’s incapacity to care for his swords may be his undoing now that he’ll have to seek Haganezuka for a new one. He broke his first sword fighting Rui, lost his most recent when he flung it at Akaza and chipped his replacement sword fighting Daki. Because of Haganezuka’s homicidal wrath over Tanjiro’s terrible track record of caring for the swordsmith’s work.

the Demon Slayer protagonist may be in for more than a forest pursuit this time. Given that the storyline for Season 3 has been announced to be “Swordsmith Village,” Tanjiro could be in severe danger for repeatedly losing and breaking his swords.

The Hashira Need To Start Working Together

If Tengen Uzui’s support had arrived sooner, he might have escaped the encounter with Gyutaro uninjured. Tengen had asked Serpent Hashira’s assistance some time ago, judging by Makio and Suma’s harsh greeting for Iguro Obanai. While Iguro was impressed that they defeated an Upper-Rank opponent, he seemed unconcerned with the fact that it was merely an Upper Six opponent.

If Iguro were that much stronger than Tengen, he would have been a great help in the battle. 1v1’ing an Upper-Rank is a horrible decision, as Kyojuro Rengoku’s death and Tengen’s forced retirement have demonstrated. The Hashira are critical to the Demon Slayer Corps’ existence, and they’ll have to start cooperating if they intend to defeat the remaining Upper Ranks. Fortunately, based on the Season 3 trailer, Hashira wants to start doing just that.

A Reckoning Is Coming For Demon Slayer's Upper-Ranks

muzan

After the death of Rui (Lower Five), Muzan Kibutsuji summoned a conference of the Kizuki, and he determined to exterminate the Lower Ranks. Gyutaro (Upper Six) appears to have convened another meeting now that he has been killed. In Season 2 of Demon Slayer, Muzan’s most superior demons disappointed him greatly.

Despite leaving Tanjiro and the others alive, Akaza failed to locate the Blue Spider Lily and proudly announced his defeat of Hashira. Muzan, on the other hand, urged Daki not to be arrogant, and it was her and Gyutaro’s attitude that led to their deaths. Muzan is less likely to wipe off the Upper Ranks than he did the Lower Ranks, but he will almost certainly have new instructions for his most skilled demons. The Upper Ranks are almost certain to start Season 3 on shaky ground with Muzan, which means they’ll be eager to take on the Demon Slayer Corps.

A Cure For Demonism Is Now In Development

In the Season 2 conclusion of Demon Slayer, Tanjiro’s effort to turn Nezuko back into a mortal took a huge stride forward. In Season 1, Tamayo tasked Tanjiro with gathering the blood of a demon with a high concentration of Kibutsuji’s cells, the only other demon who had escaped Muzan’s influence.

Only Kizuki’s blood would suffice, and Tanjiro has finally delivered, returning Gyutaro’s blood to be studied. Tamayo now has everything she stated she needed to develop a cure, including a sample of Nezuko’s blood. It’s uncertain how long this would take, but a cure for demonism would transform the Demon Slayer Corps and would undoubtedly attract Muzan Kibutsuji’s attention (and fury).

Demon Slayer Season 3: Everything We Know About The New Swordsmith Village Arc

swordsmith village

Season 3 of Demon Slayer has released its first full trailer, and things are now feeling very real. Unfortunately for those ready to dive into Tanjiro and the company’s next adventure in the Swordsmith Village arc, the latest season is likely still a long way off.

While we wait, we’ve put together a quick rundown of what to expect from Demon Slayer season 3, including who will be returning, which manga chapters will be adapted, and other interesting tidbits about the hit anime’s comeback. Thus take a deep breath and read on to find out all we know about Demon Slayer season 3 so far.

Release Date Rumors for Demon Slayer Season 3: Swordsmith Village Arc

Installment 3 of Demon Slayer is set to launch in 2023, while nothing has been confirmed. We had expected Fall 2022 to be a distinct possibility, but in the COVID era, that seemed improbable. If that’s the case, a release in Spring 2023 (about April 2023) or Fall 2023 (September-October 2023) are both viable options.

However, Ufotable, the series’ animation studio, is known for its high level of consistency. Demon Slayer premiered in the fall of 2019, while Mugen Train will be released in the fall of 2020 in Japan. The Mugen Train recap arc for Demon Slayer will be broadcast on television in Fall 2021. The Demon Slayer’s run of consecutive Fall debuts may be coming to an end, but Ufotable can accomplish anything. The most recent teaser shows some footage that suggests the project is doing well, but no release date has been set. We can aim for Fall 2022, but 2023 appears to be a better bet right now.

Demon Slayer Season 3 Story: What Arc is it Adapting?

swordsmith village

The Swordsmith Village Arc marks the start of Demon Slayer’s third season. Don’t fret; we’re not going to give any spoilers about the original source, but we believe it will cover chapters 100 through 127 of the manga. Expect a season of 12 enthralling episodes, give or take a few, based on the Entertainment District Arc, which ran a similar time period, from 70 to 99.

Unless there are any significant deviations, Tanjiro should proceed to Swordsmith Village to get a new weapon. There’s also an antique weapon in the neighborhood. However, the situation involving the Hashiras of Love and Mist, as well as a demon or two, isn’t altogether straightforward. On a more general note, the Entertainment District finale hinted at where the show will most likely go following season 3 of Demon Slayer. Despite the fact that Tengen is no longer on the board, he is still alive and healthy. He told Iguro that Tanjiro was the most likely replacement for Hashira. The Demon Slayers will be able to finally retaliate against Muzan Kibutsuji, their ultimate goal.

Demon Slayer Season 3 Cast: Who are The New Characters and Demons?

The Swordsmith Village arc cast includes Tanjiro (Natsuki Hanae), Zenitsu (Hiro Shimono), Inosuke (Yoshitsugu Matsuoka), and Nezuko (Akari Kitou). Two characters we’ve already seen in the series, the Mist Hashira Muichiro Tokito and the Love Hashira Mitsuri Kanoji will be joining them.

In future seasons, expect to see additional Hashiras, as well as members of the Twelve Upper Moons/Twelve Kibuki. Haruo Satozaki will direct, with Akira Matsushima handling the character design.

We Cannot Wait for The New Season - Can You?

The first trailer for Demon Slayer season 3 has arrived; however, it largely serves as a recap of the previous seasons. However, there are some glimpses of new material in the sizzle reel: the Love and Mist Hashira are seen separately, and a new sword (later carried by Tanjiro) is being manufactured at the Swordsmith Village.
