Fans who were worried that we’d seen the last of Tanjiro, Nezuko, and everyone else can rest easy. Season three of Demon Slayer is definitely coming.
In May 2022, the second season of the hugely popular anime series Demon Slayer came to an end with an amazing finale that had some of the best fight scenes in the series so far.
Demon Slayer also had a great year because the spinoff/sequel movie, Demon Slayer: Mugen Train, was a huge hit. When it came out in 2020, Mugen Train was a big hit around the world and made the most money of any Japanese movie ever made.
So, now that the dust has settled in the entertainment district, what will happen next in Tanjiro and the Hashira Corps’ ongoing fight against Muzan Kibutsuji? Here’s what we know about season 3 of Demon Slayer.
Season 3 of Demon Slayer Trailer
In April 2022, Crunchyroll and the production company Ufotable put out the first trailer for the third season.
It’s hard to say it’s a trailer, though, because it’s mostly just a recap of the show so far, showing you the best parts of seasons one and two.
The most interesting thing is that some key (old) footage of the Mist and Love Hashiras, who will be important in the third season, is included.
If we assume that the third season of Demon Slayer will start in late 2023, we can expect to see a full trailer in June 2023. This is based on what happened in the previous two seasons. Keep an eye on this.
Cast of Demon Slayer Season 3
Even though the third season of Demon Slayer isn’t coming out for a while, we can probably assume that most of the actors from the first and second seasons will be back. Mist Hashira, played by Muichiro Tokito, and Love Hashira, played by Mitsuri Kanroji, will be the two most important new characters. Both were first seen in episode 21 of season one.
So, here are the Japanese and English names of the people who play the main characters in Demon Slayer:
- Tanjiro Kamado – Natsuki Hanae / Zach Aguilar (English)
- Nezuko Kamado – Akari Kitô / Abby Trott (English)
- Inosuke Hashibira – Yoshitsugu Matsuoka / Bryce Papenbrook (English)
- Zenitsu Agatsuma – Hiro Shimono / Aleks Le (English)
- Muzan Kibutsuji – Toshihiko Seki / Greg Chun (English)
- Kagaya Ubuyashiki – Toshiyuki Morikawa / Matthew Mercer (English)
- Water Hashira, Giyu Tomioka – Takahiro Sakurai / Johnny Yong Bosch (English)
- Love Hashira, Mitsuri Kanroji – Kana Hanazawa / Kira Buckland (English)
- Mist Hashira, Muichiro Tokito – Kengo Kawanishi / Griffin Burns (English)
- Flower Hashira, Kanae Kocho – Ai Kayano / Bridget Hoffman (English)
- Tsuguko Kanao Tsuyuri – Reina Ueda / Brianna Knickerbocker (English)
Key members of the production team will also be back, like Koyoharu Gotoge, who is in charge of the original story, Haruo Sotozaki, who is the director, and Akira Matsushima, who is in charge of designing the characters.
The Plot for Season 3 of “Demon Slayer”
The plot of season three will be based on the ninth arc of the original manga, which is called the “Swordsmith Village” arc.
It’s important to note that the Demon Slayer manga ended in 2020. This gives anime fans a unique chance to find out (roughly) what the future holds for Tanjiro and the rest of the group.
The Swordsmith Village arc starts right after the Entertainment District arc, which ended with Tanjiro and Sound Hashira Tengen Uzui beating the demon siblings Gyutaro and Daki.
The only thing that was lost for good in this epic battle was Tanjiro’s sword which could kill demons.
In the third season of Demon Slayer, Tanjiro will go to the Swordsmith Village to have Hotaru Haganezuka fix his sword.
There, Tanjiro and his friends will have to deal with a lot of demons (including an Upper-Rank Six that splits themselves across multiple bodies). Mist Hashira’s friend Muichiro Tokito steps in to take care of the thread, which is lucky.
“I’m glad to hear that Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba and Japanese animation have caught the attention of many people outside of Japan.
“Caring for family, how important life is, and living life to the fullest are some of the themes of this anime, which everyone can relate to. I feel very lucky that everyone in the world has come together and feels the same way.”
If season three wants to build on the show’s success, it will keep developing these important themes.
