It has been announced that the second season of the TV anime “Kimetsu no Yaiba” will be broadcast in 2021.
This information was announced during the “Kimetsu-Sai Online -Anime 2 Anniversary Celebration-“, a special program commemorating the 2nd anniversary of the anime that aired today, February 14 (Sun). In addition to the announcement of this information, all four episodes of the new anime video “Kimetsu Gakuen Valentine’s Day Arc” were distributed at the program.
After completing their mission on the infinite train, Tanjiro and his friends are now on their next mission in “Entertainment District arc”. One of the highest ranking swordsmen in the Demon-Slayer Squad, the sound pillar Uzutengen, and Tanjiro and the others head to a brothel where demons live. The teaser visual depicts Uzu Tengen on a mission with Sumijiro and the others in the “brothel” version, in vivid colors.
The first PV released at the same time shows the streets of the brothel and Utsugi Tengen looking down on it from the roof.

In the Versus mode, where up to two players control two characters in a 2v2 battle, it was announced that in addition to Tanjirou Kamon, Zenitsu Agatsuma, and Hashibirainosuke would be participating, but in the Versus mode character selection screen, it was revealed that Giyuu Tomioka would also be a playable character.
In the Versus mode demo, you can see Tanjiro perform the Water Breathing, Nino Waterwheel, Satsuno Waterfall, and Jyuno Ikusei Ryutensen, Priestess perform the Blood Demon Technique, Bakubetsu, and Zenitsu Wagatsuma perform the Bolt Issen Roku-Ren with beautiful and powerful graphics just like in the anime.

It has been announced that “Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba” will be followed by “Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba” Yugaku-Chapter, a TV anime to be broadcast in 2021. A teaser visual depicting the flamboyant sound pillar Umaru Tengen and the first PV were also released. We’ll be checking out the anime version of “Entertainment District arc” to see how it’s going to turn out.
It has been announced that a TV anime will be broadcast in 2021. In “Entertainment District arc”, the sound pillar Utsugi Tengen (CV: Katsuyuki Konishi), Tanjiro Kamon, Zenitsu Agatsuma, and Uduitengen clash with the demons lurking in Yoshiwara Yuukaku. How the glittering brothel in the front and the dark demons in the back will be portrayed in the anime has not been announced yet. I can’t wait!
I’m going to pick up four points that I want to pay attention to in order to find out what kind of work the TV anime “Blade of Extinction” will be.
In this article, I have tried not to touch the core of the story, but there are some references to the original manga. If you have not read the original manga, please read with caution.
◆The theme song is LiSA?
LiSA sang the theme song “Gurenge” for the first season of the TV anime and “HOMURA” for “Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba” the movie version. I wonder if LiSA will be in charge of the theme song for “Yuukaku Hen” as well.
Also, the insert song for the TV anime episode 19 “Hinokami”, “Tanjiro Kamon no Uta” (Go Shiina featuring Nami Nakagawa), has been highly praised as a “divine song” by fans. If it is the production staff of the anime “Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba,” they are sure to bring the beginning of the story to life with artists and songs that will not disappoint.
◆Tanjiro dressed as a woman and Zenitsu’s voice behind him
The highlight of “The Brothel” is one of the best gags by Tanjiro, Zenitsu, and Inosuke! When Tengen’s three wives who have infiltrated the brothel as prostitutes lose contact with him, Tanjiro and his friends are sold to a store to gather information.
Tanjiro and his friends are made up and dressed in women’s kimonos in a house with a wisteria flower family crest. Inosuke’s thick voice cannot be masked, so he is ordered by Tengen not to speak. Tanjiro and Zenitsu work in the store using back voices to avoid being identified as boys. …… I wonder what kind of voice acting Natsuki Hanae and Hiro Shimono will do as Tanjiro and Zenitsu, respectively.
What kind of voice acting will Natsuki Hanae as Tanjiro and Hiro Shimono as Zenitsu do? Hiro Shimono, who is known for his “dirty high voice,” may create a new legend with his “high voice in women’s clothing.
◆Uzui Tengen’s flashy battle, the drawing of the DAKI looks excruciating.
From the middle of the ninth volume of the original manga to the end of the eleventh volume, the fight to the death between Tengen, Tanjiro, Zenitsu, Inosuke, and Jyogen no Riku unfolded.
The battle scenes in “Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba” by the anime production company ufotable are so powerful that they make me shudder. The battle of Tengen, who calls himself “The Pillar of Sound,” will be depicted with flashy sounds and images.
Furthermore, Riku the Fallen Princess of Kamigen uses blood demon techniques to manipulate the sash of her kimono. The patterns on the haori of Sumijiro and the others have also been painstakingly drawn. I can’t imagine how much energy it takes to draw the scene where the gorgeous sashes of women’s kimono are attacked in every direction. I’m sure they will draw it beautifully as well as terrifyingly. The gorgeous patterns that surround Tengen’s visuals in the first PV also give us a lot to imagine.
◆Do we even have a second, JIMUZAN’s “Power Harassment Conference”?
The “Entertainment District arc” ends with the final episode of the original manga, “No matter how many times I’m reborn,” which is the last episode of the 11th volume of the book. In the 98th episode of the 12th volume, “Gathering the Jyogen”, Onimai Tsuji Musai gathers all the “Uegen no Oni”, a scene reminiscent of the slaughter of the “Shimogen no Oni”, known as the “Power Harassment Conference” among the fans.
Here, Muso tells the Uegen no Oni what happened at the brothel, and the story moves on to the next chapter, “The Village of the Sword Forge”.
In the “Power Harassment Conference” of the first season of the TV anime, the demon Nightmare of the Lower Strings survived, and the story led to the “Infinite Train Arc”. I’m wondering how many episodes will be depicted in “Entertainment District arc”.
The voice actors of the Uegen no Oni that Tanjiro and his friends will fight until the end of the story are the most interesting point. There is a lot of speculation as to who will be the voice of the most popular demon of all, Dogen no.2. Looking back at the casting of the demons that have appeared in the series so far, there are some that make you go, “Oh my god! I think we can expect some big names to be chosen.
