Demon Slayer Season 2: Release Date, Trailer And Everything We Know So Far

Demon Slayer or Kimetsu no Yaiba created a huge storm when it released in the year 2018, and with the release of the Mugen Train in 2020, the show has become an even bigger sensation than before.

When we look back at the events in the show’s season 1 and the movie  Mugen train, it really highlights what we can expect further.

At the end of last season, we saw Muzan sending the lower Kizuki rank 1 to find and kill Tanjiro and Hashiras of the Demon Slayer Organization. As fans might have noticed, Muzan, for some reason, is especially terrified of Tanjiro. He keeps on referring to him as “the boy with hanafuda earrings”. In the last season, When tanjiro grabs hold of Muzan in the streets of Tokyo, as soon as Muzan notices his earrings, he gets a flashback. A flashback in which we see Muzan on the ground defeated. We saw a man standing in front of Muzan, who is most likely the one who defeated him. The man wearing the same earrings as Tanjiro gives us a hint that he and tanjiro might be connected somehow.

It is clear from Muzan’s reactions that Tanjiro’s earring stirs a memory that Muzan wishes to forget at all costs. In the Mugen train, when lower Kizuki rank 1 fails to kill tanjiro and the people on the Mugen train, all of a sudden, we see the upper-rank officer making an appearance, which in my personal opinion, was no coincidence. In the movie, we saw the flame Hashira Rengoku go against Rank three of the upper kizuki, who was going to kill the beat down Tanjiro.

Rengoku fights valiantly, protecting everyone around him, and in an unfortunate turn of events, is killed during his fight with rank three. We saw how his death impacted Tanjiro, Zenitsu and Innosuke and left them broken-hearted on Rengoku’s death.

Demon Slayer Season 2 Release Date And Trailer Breakdown

A scene from the trailer

If you’ve seen the trailer of season 2, then you’ll know that not a lot of information was released. The trailer only featured 2 shots. However, we see Tanjiro and his friends along with the sound Hashira Tengen Uzui. According to the reports season, 2 will cover the entertainment district arc in which Tengen Uzui is a major supporting character. Seeing that a Hashira is now working on a case means that we can expect another member of the 12 Kizuki to show up. As we know, the members of the 12 Kizuki haven’t changed for the past 100 years, which highlights that they are a force to be reckoned with.

Demon slayer Season 2 is all set to get released at the end of the year 2021. Season 2 will most probably begin airing from October end.

After seeing what happened to Rengoku, will Tanjiro and his friends be able to fight someone soo strong? Will Rengoku’s death make them stronger, or will they once again lose someone they love? Make sure to watch season 2 and find out.
