The Kimetsu no Utage: Yūkaku-hen event for the Demon Slayer anime revealed a new promotional video last Saturday for the anime’s upcoming Swordsmith Village Arc (Katanakaji no Sato-Hen) television anime. As expected, fans online were thrilled about the video release.
Swordsmith Village Arc Trailer
Although it does not give away too much plot-wise, it still builds up the hype for the upcoming season. The previous Entertainment District Arc finished airing 11 episodes on February 20.
Director Haruo Sotozaki, character designer and chief animation director Akira Matsushima, the animation studio Ufotable, and the main cast are all returning for the new arc. Studio Ufotable made the striking stylistic choice of having the events of the first seasons play out in scrolls. Then, as we reach the end of the Entertainment District Arc, a new scroll materializes and begins to unfold.
This scroll is outlined in blueish-green and pink, two colors that symbolize the two Hashira that will be the focus of this arc: Love Hashira Mitsuri Kanroji and the Mist Hashira Muichiro Tokito. The trailer does not provide any new information that one wouldn’t be able to glean from the teaser released in February. However, there are a couple of new animated shots that fans hadn’t seen before.
