One of the most popular anime series in recent years Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba has received praise from both anime fans and mainstream critics for its breathtaking animation, intense fight sequences, and memorable characters. In addition, the series has amassed acclaim from fans of other types of media.
Following the debut of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train and the conclusion of the anime’s second season, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Entertainment District Arc, the popularity of the series shows no signs of waning. Production on a third season of the anime is already well underway.
Even though we do not know the precise date that the third season of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba will premiere, we do have a pretty decent notion of when it will be. In addition, we have a few cues from other shows that can give us a clue about its debut date.
Cast of the Third Season of “Demon Slayer”
As part of the cast for the Swordsmith Village arc, Tanjiro (portrayed by Natsuki Hanae), Zenitsu (portrayed by Hiro Shimono), Inosuke (portrayed by Yoshitsugu Matsuoka), and Nezuko (portrayed by Akari Kitou) will all make their comeback.
In addition to them, two other characters—the Love Hashira Mitsuri Kanoji and the Mist Hashira Muichiro Tokito—who have already made brief appearances in the series will be joining them.
You can also anticipate the appearance of other Hashiras and members of the Twelve Upper Moons or Twelve Kibuki in upcoming seasons of the show. An official sketch of the evil Doma, one of the Upper Moons, was only recently made available online in anticipation of her potential appearance in the upcoming third season of Demon Slayer.
What to Expect in Season 3 of “Demon Slayer”
As was said, the “Swordsmith Village” arc of the manga will be used in Season 3 of Demon Slayer. After Tanjiro fought Upper Moon 6’s Daki and Gyutaro in Season 2, his Nichirin sword, which is the only weapon that can hurt demons, needs a lot of work.
So, he goes to the Swordsmith Village to ask Hotaru Haganezuka, who has made all of Tanjiro’s swords so far, for help. But, as with every Demon Slayer storyline, enemies are never far away.
Even though the Hashiras were all briefly shown during a meeting in Season 1, Episode 21, Tanjiro and the others are slowly getting to know each one better as the story goes on.
Hashiras often become fan favorites, like Giyuu Tomioka, the Water Hashira, and Shinobu Kocho, the Insect Hashira, in Season 1, Kyojuro Rengoku, the Flame Hashira, in Demon Slayer: Mugen Train, and Tengen Uzui, the Sound Hashira, in Season 2. Now, a poster for the upcoming third season teases that Muichiro Tokito, the Mist Hashira, and Mitsuri Kanroji, the Love Hashira, will show up and get their moment in the spotlight.
Haruo Sotozaki and Akira Matsushima will both be back as director and character designer, according to a tweet from the official English Twitter account for Demon Slayer.
When Will Demon Slayer Kimetsu No Yaiba Season 3 Come Out?
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Swordsmith Village Arc hasn’t been given a release date yet, but if we were to be optimistic, the first episode of the third season might come out in the fall of 2023.
Season 3 On Crunchyroll Or Netflix?
At the moment, we don’t know who will get the rights to stream Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Swordsmith Village Arc in North America. Previous seasons of the show premiered on Crunchyroll and Funimation, and the first season of Demon Slayer was added to Netflix just before the start of season 2.
Since Sony bought Crunchyroll last year, Funimation is now under the Crunchyroll brand. This makes it more likely that the third season of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba will premiere on Crunchyroll.
But we probably won’t know the answer to this question until a little closer to the show’s release date, and we’re not likely to find out anything more about this before the release date is set.
Is There a Trailer for Season 3 of “Demon Slayer”?
On April 16, Crunchyroll put out an official trailer for the “Swordsmith Village” arc, but it feels more like a teaser. In the first minute and a half of this three-minute trailer, clips and dialogue from the story so far are shown.
After that, the trailer goes in a different direction. But even then, fans only see a few shots of swordsmiths at work and a quick look at the Mist and Love Hashiras before the show end with Tanjiro drawing his sword and yelling a fierce battle cry.
Even though this trailer doesn’t show much, the animation is still amazing, and it looks like the next season of Demon Slayer will be just as beautiful and amazing to look at.
