As Demon Slayer took the world by storm when it first came out, fans were eager for season 2. Now that Season 2 is out, they will be overjoyed. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba season 2 premiered on Netflix on 10th October.
The manga started in 2016 has already grossed $2.8 billion from anime, manga sales, figurines, etc. Ufotable studio was behind the anime, and they have done a good job with the animation and character design.
What to expect from Demon Slayer season 2?
Fans who have watched the Mugen Train film can skip the first seven episodes as the latest season has a seven-episode arc by the same name. This will help the fans who missed the Mugen Train movie get onboard.
The “Mugen Train” arc will contain some new scenes and an entire episode focussing on Kyojuro Rengoku (Flame Hashira). Fans will get to know more of the “flamboyant” Tengen Uzui (Sound Hashira). He leads our dynamic squad through the bustling town of Yoshiwara to fight against Daki (Upper Moon Six).
Demon Slayer season 2 release date
Fans who wish to start from the “Entertainment District” arc can watch the anime from the episode that aired on December 5.
To get fans on board, a sort of an extended trailer of the Entertainment District arc has been released on YouTube. Here, we get to see the Sound Hashira with his unwrapped shiny blades as he runs on the rooftops of Yoshiwara at night.
We also see Tanjiro using his fire breathing style on Daki but, the breathing style hardly fazes the Upper Moon Six. Inosuke, Zenitsu, and Nezuko can be seen in the thick of things.
The plot of Demon Slayer
The story follows Tanjiro Kamado and his younger sister Nezuko, who has turned into a demon even after surviving the attack. The government does not recognize the Demon Slayer Corps, but only they can fight demons. Thus, the war between humans and demons is secret.
A member of the Demon Slayer Corps, who they met just after the attack on their family, advises them to join the Demon Slayer Corps. They take his advice and embark on a journey to find a cure for Nezuko’s condition.
The cast of Demon Slayer
Sometimes voice actors for the characters change after a season. Fortunately, Demon Slayer season 2 hasn’t faced such issues, as the same cast has returned for the sophomore season. The following voice actors reprise their roles:
- Tanjiro- Natsuki Hanae/Zach Aguilar
- Nezuko- Akari Kitô/Abby Trott
- Zenitsu Agatsuma- Hiro Shimono/Aleks Le
- Inosuke Hashibira- Yoshitsugu Matsuoka/Bryce Papenbrook
- Tengen Uzui- Katsuyuki Konishi / Ray Chase
- Daki- Miyuki Sawashiro
- Muzan Kibutsuji- Toshihiko Seki / Greg Chun
Fans still hum to the previous season’s opening theme “Gurenge” by LiSA, but they can now update their playlists. Aimer’s latest tunes, including “Zankyo Sanka” and “Asa ga Kuru” will bless your ears as the new opening and ending themes, respectively.
