The time is dwindling for one of anime’s biggest releases of 2021– Demon Slayer “Season 2”.
During the special panel at Anime Expo Lite 2021, Aniplex of America streamed an English-dubbed trailer for the second season of Demon Slayer. While the trailer doesn’t show much, it’s adequate to set things in motion.
“SEASON 2” TRAILER
Following the huge success of the first season and the record-breaking achievements of the Mugen Train movie, Demon Slayer is unarguably anime’s hottest franchise at the moment. For fans of the series who have not seen the movie, it is a must-watch as the story comes before the Entertainment district arc that will be the focus of the second season.
Demon Slayer is slated to premiere its second season this year, and according to most sources, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba’s second season will be releasing in Japan later this year in October. The first season aired on Crunchyroll, Funimation, Hulu, and Netflix in the US, and on Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Netflix in the UK, so it is expected that the second season will air on these same platforms.
WHAT’S SHOWN IN THE TRAILER?
The trailer shows Tanjiro and his group heading to Yoshiwara, a town with bright lights and dark desires. Fertile ground for demons, then, and with the Sound Hashira (Tengen Uzui) also in tow, expect Tanjiro to, maybe, come into conflict with an Upper Moon or two. In the trailer, Inosuke is seen charging away in one scene, while there is a special focus on the Sound Hashira. It will be great to see how Tengen Uzui mentors the trio and how they will fare under him just like with Rengoku in the Mugen Train movie.
Based on the trailer, it is most likely that the cast will be returning. The first season of the TV anime and the Mugen Train anime film are both now streaming on Funimation with Japanese and English-dubbed audio.
