Demon Slayer is without a doubt one of the most popular anime series ever. Based on a manga series of the same name, the story follows Tanjiro Kamado, a young boy whose entire family is killed by a demon except for his sister. His sister is turned into a demon, but she retains human characteristics and emotions. He comes across a group known as the Demon Slayer Corps. Tanjiro becomes a member of the society and embarks on a long journey to avenge the death of his family.
The second season of Demon Slayer, like the first, was a huge hit around the world. Fans were treated to a number of exciting action-packed episodes. Fans are eager for more action after the second season ended on February 13, 2022.
So, what have the most recent developments in Demon Slayer Season 3 been? Is there a set date for the release? Here’s what we know so far, as revealed by ShonenRoad’s anime fans.
Will there be Demon Slayer Season 3?
With an 8.57/10 rating, the first season of Demon Slayer is the 12th most popular anime title on Myanimelist. On Myanimelist, the anime film Demon Slayer: Mugen Train has an 8.7/10 rating. More than 0.5 million members have given the second season an 8.8/10 rating.
It’s not just about the ratings; Demon Slayer episodes have been viewed in record numbers in Japan, the United States, and elsewhere.
Demon Slayer is the most popular TV show in the United States, according to Parrot Analysis. Demon Slayer: Mugen Train, a sequel to the first season, premiered in Japan on October 16, 2020, and went on to become the highest-grossing film in Japan. It also becomes the all-time highest-grossing anime film.Given the franchise’s popularity, fans were assured that a third season would be forthcoming. It turned out to be correct. At the conclusion of the second season, the creators announced the third season. The “Swordsmith Village” arc will be adapted for the following season.
What plot would Demon Slayer Season 3 follow?
The second season of Demon Slayer was based on Chapters 70 through 99 of the manga series Entertainment District Arc. Mugen Train Arc was the subject of its prequel film.
The Swordsmith Village Arc is being adapted for Demon Slayer season 3 according to ShonenRoad experts. Those who are familiar with manga will recognise that the arc has a total of 28 chapters (100-127). So, like the second season, we can expect the third season to have around 12 episodes.
Tanjiro will visit Swordsmith Village in the upcoming season to have his sword repaired. He discovers that his usual contact has vanished. Tanjiro is introduced to two new hashira as he begins his investigation. Mitsuki Kanroji, the love hashira, is the first.
Genya Shinazugawa joins her, and Tanjiro is sent on a mission to find a weapon in the village.
When is Demon Slayer Season 3 release date?
According to a new trailer, production on the third season has already begun. The animation studio behind the series, Ufotable, is very punctual with its releases. The first season of Demon Slayer premiered in the fall of 2019, followed by the Mugen Train film in the spring of 2020. The second season will premiere in the fall of 2022. As a result, Demon Slayer Season 3 is expected to be released in the fall of 2022 or early of 2023.
However, we must keep in mind that the COVID-19 pandemic could have an impact on the new season’s production. In that case, a release in the spring of 2023 (around April 2023) or the fall of 2023 (September-October 2023) seems more likely.
How Many Episodes Will Demon Slayer Season 3 Have?
Because the production company hasn’t revealed how many episodes Demon Slayer Season 3 will have, there’s no word on when it will be released. However, based on previous anime patterns, the second season will have at least 10 to 12 episodes.
The anime will most likely not change its order in any way as it adapts from the given source material.
In its 26 episodes, Season 1 of Demon Slayer was adapted from 50 manga chapters. The Entertainment District Arc was adapted from 30 chapters in 11 episodes for Season 2.
As a result, the Swordsmith Village Arc should span about 25 chapters of the manga. If the anime stays on track, 10 to 12 episodes could be possible, according to ShonenRoad fans.
Season 3 is currently in the works. On its official website, the anime recently released a teaser for the upcoming season as well as a cast list.
