Plot for Season 3 of Demon Slayer
Warning: There are significant Demon Slayer season 2 spoilers in this section. Therefore, if you haven’t watched the anime yet, stay away from it.
Season 2 Finale Summary
In Demon Slayer season 2, our heroes head into the entertainment area where Tengen’s agents have vanished along with Tengen Uzui, the sound Hashira. They quickly learn that a demon is covertly residing there, ruling the entire neighbourhood, and using the locals as puppets. This begins a string of action and detective plotlines that propel the series into entirely new realms.
Our heroes battle the demon siblings Daki and Gyotaro as Season 2 comes to a close. Due to their outstanding coordination and erratic movements, they turn to be an insurmountable foe. However, the demon slayers turn to prevail without suffering any severe consequences or harm. But this triumph isn’t your typical one. Daki was an Upper Moon Demon who was in close contact with Muzan Kibutsuji, Demon Slayer’s major foe. Therefore, there could be some severe repercussions in this area.
On the other hand, this season also revealed it known that Kagaya Ubuyashiki, the head of the Demon Slayer Association, is currently bedridden. Furthermore, not all Hashiras are as excited about the turn of events as others. Even Kyojuro Rengoku’s passing, caused by the fire Hashira, is still raw. As a defeat, it may be said that the DSA has successfully defeated an Upper Moon demon, though not at its peak right now.
Arc of Swordsmith Village
The Swordsmith Villages arc of the manga, which occurs immediately after the top events of the Entertainment District arc, which Season 2’s focus was on, will be the place of Demon Slayer’s third season. Manga volume 12, which according to Viz Media is the following, will open with the anime’s third season’s debut:
Muzan Kibutsuji’s Twelve Kizuki’s upper ranks are not entirely filled for the first time in more than a century. Muzan sends the survivors on a new mission in a fit of rage. In another location, Tanjiro travels to a village of swordsmiths and is required to explain to Haganezuka, the smith who made his sword, how it came to be so severely wounded. Enemies close in while Tanjiro waits for his sword to be fixed.
With Tanjiro visiting the village of the swordsmith to have his sword fixed, the third season of Demon Slayer will open. The Demon Slayer Association guards the location of this village’s location very well because the swords are its most prized possession. Without it, the demon slayers are unable to defeat their Nichirin blades, the only effective means of taking down demons. Unfortunately, other demons learn where the village is while Tanjiro is there and begin a full-location attack on it.
The troop of demons includes two Upper Moons, Hantengu and Gyokko, which only makes matters worse. Although Tanjiro has the backing of Muichiro Tokito, the Mist Hashira, these two demons have comes to destroy the village, and they may not be strong enough to win this fight. Particularly when they also need to defend a whole village that is important to the survival of the demon slayers.
One of the demons is also capable of self-replication and instantaneous healing. The demon slayers are therefore not only outnumbered but also outpowered. What will fight in this battle? We are eager to learn for ourselves.
How many episodes will there be in Season 3 of Demon Slayer?
The whole Swordsmith Village arc, which has 25 chapters in the Demon Slayer manga, is anticipated to be covered in Season 3. In line with the Entertainment District Arc (also known as season 2), which contains 11 episodes, the anime adaptation should have about 11 to 12 total episodes.
Cast and Characters for Demon Slayer Season 3
The following Japanese voice actors will portray the following characters in Demon Slayer’s third season:
Natsuki Hanae is Tanjiro, Hiro Shimono is Zenitsu, and Yoshitsugu Matsuoka is Inosuke.
- Akari Kitou Nezuko
Other important characters voiced by uncredited actors:
- Tecchin Tecchikawahara (Chief of Swordsmith Village); Muichiro Tokito (Mist Hashiras); Mitsuri Kanoji (Love Hashira); Hotaru Haganezukas (Swordsmith who crafted Tanjiro’s sword); Genya Shinazugawa (Demon Slayer); Hantengu (Upper Rank 4 Demon); Gyokko; (Upper Rank 5 Demon)
How to watch season three of Demon Slayer
Demon Slayer season 3 will be accessible on the same platforms as previous seasons unless new contracts are finished around the time of the forthcoming season. The release date could change, though. As a result, you can expect watching the upcoming season of Demon Slayer on: Funimation, Crunchyroll, Netflix, Hulu, and DisneyPlus.
The latest anime episodes are typically released on Funimation and Crunchyroll first among these. Although Netflix would be the most secure and quick substitute if neither of them are accessible in your area.
When Is the Demon Slayer Anime Going to End?
The Swordsmith Village is the ninth of the series’ 11 arcs in the Demon Slayer manga. So far, just the following two storylines remain:
Chapters 128 to 205 of the Hashira Training Arc, Chapters 137 to 183 of the Final Battle Arc, and Chapters 184 to 205 of Sunrise Countdown.
Even though it’s very likely that the remaining Demon Slayer arcs can be wrapped up in just two seasons, we think there will be more. And the reason for that is the enormous amount of money that Demon Slayer the Movie: Mugen Train brought in on a global scale. We don’t think the creators of the animes will be able to let go of the hype so quickly. Therefore, even though the story will likely end with the manga, its conclusion might be made into a movie. But that is just our conjecture. Until the conclusion of season 3, there will be no confirmation of the same.
Yaiba Kimetsu Important Season 3 Information
Demon Slayer season 3’s release date is finally known, however it is still some months away. Therefore, you may utilise this time to either catch up on your anime watching or to try something new, like Chainsaw Man.
