Also, the thrilling news that a new movie revolving around one of the show’s best hours and a preview of what’s to come for Demon Slayer is coming to theatres.
Swordsmith Village is where Tanjiro, Zenitsu, Inosuke, and Nezuko will go on an adventure where things will undoubtedly take a dark turn, hence the name of the arc. Hashers are also present in season 3 of Demon Slayer, as you will learn below. Their presence has left a wake of the disaster in Tanjiro’s recent exploits, thus the stakes can only be raised and the drama intensified from here on out. Take a look at our whole season 3 of Demon Slayer guide to learn more.
About the “Demon Slayer” Series
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is a Japanese manga series written and drawn by Koyoharu Gotouge. The title means “Blade of Demon Destruction.” From February 2016 to May 2020, it ran in Shueisha’s shonen manga magazine Weekly Shonen Jump.
The chapters were collected in 23 tank volumes. It was put out by Viz Media in English and by Shueisha on their Manga Plus platform at the same time. The story is about a young man named Tanjiro Kamado, who wants to become a demon slayer after his family is killed and his younger sister turns into a demon.
Demon Slayer Season 3 Release Date
Season 3 of “Demon Slayer” will premiere sometime in April 2023, as has been officially confirmed.
The 2019 premiere of Demon Slayer marked the debut of the show’s inaugural season. The second season of Demon Slayer premiered in October 2021 and concluded in February 2022. There will have been a wait of just over a year between seasons this time around; here’s hoping it was well worth it.
3rd Season of Demon Slayer Plot
As previously mentioned, a Crunchyroll teaser reveals that the third season of Demon Slayer will focus on the Swordsmith Village arc. In terms of the TV series source material, this means that the next episode will cover chapters 100-127 of Koyoharu Gotouge’s manga.
In the Demon Slayer manga, the Swordsmith Village arc occurs immediately after the Entertainment District arc covered in season 2 of the anime series. For those who do not recall the previous episode of the anime, the previous season of Demon Slayer concluded with Tanjiro and Sound Hashira Tengen Uzui making history by beheading two of the top six members of the Twelve Kizuki, the demon siblings Gyutaro and Daki.
Tanjiro’s trusted demon-slaying sword was shattered during the epic battle, even though the Demon Slayers managed to unsettle the inner circle of the demon king Muzan Kibutsuji, which had been immovable for generations.
Tanjiro must repair his blade to continue fighting and collect demon blood, which he needs for his quest to transform his sister Nezuko back into a human. Therefore, the astute hero travels to the Swordsmith Village so that Hotaru Haganezuka, a swordsman linked with the Demon Slayer Corps, can restore his sword.
Unfortunate as it may be, the Village where the group is headed contains an ancient weapon. Tanjiro and his companions may (okay, will certainly) encounter one or more formidable demons as they conduct their business.
As evidenced by the trailer, the Love Hashira Mitsuri Kanroji and the Mist Hashira Muichiro Tokito will also accompany Tanjiro and company. With the help of the experienced Demon Slayers, hopefully, all of our heroes will escape the Swordsmith Village alive.
The Cast of Demon Slayer Season 3
It appears that all series regulars will return for the third season of Demon Slayer. Even though the next chapter won’t be released until the middle of 2023, we can count on Natsuki Hanae and Akari Kitô to reprise their roles as Tanjiro and Nezuko.
