It’s official! The highly anticipated second season of Demon Slayer (or Kimetsu no Yaiba) is slated to release in October this year, and fans could not be more excited. With the full trailer dropping, we already get to see some gorgeously fluid animation, courtesy of the animation studio, Ufotable.

Demon Slayer took the world by storm. First airing in April of 2019, people were captured by its endearing characters, beautiful animation, and compelling villains. Ufotable has truly done a stunning job with innovative CGI work, elevating the story to a whole new level with its visuals. After season one finished airing, instead of jumping into a brand new season, a 2-hour film was released instead. This decision was made so that the pacing of the story would not be interrupted, as it was determined that the Mugen Train arc would work better as a movie instead of an episodic format.

“Demon Slayer the Movie: Mugen Train” already released in theatres in Japan in October, 2020, but only recently released a month ago in the US. It picks up where season 1 ends, and as mentioned above, it covers the Mugen Train arc. Season 2 will be a continuation of the series after the events that take place in the movie.

Even though the original manga that the anime is based on concluded over a year ago in May of 2020, fans are still as excited as ever for the next season. Demon Slayer’s manga and anime adaptation made waves, not only in Japan but internationally. It broke all sorts of sales records, both its individual chapters as they were published in Weekly Shounen Jump as well as its complete volumes being sold overseas.

Having read the manga in its entirety myself, I have some mixed feelings on the ending; nonetheless, I look forward to seeing how the rest of the story will be adapted by Ufotable. Watching the trailer rekindled my love for the series, and you know I’ll be there to watch the first episode of season two when it premieres!
