The thriller of when Demon Slayer season 2’s launch date has been solved ultimately, and as promised, it is going to certainly be making it out in 2021. However not and not using a little detour first.
Earlier than we head to the Leisure District for Demon Slayer season 2, Funimation has introduced that it’s turning the smash-hit Mugen Prepare characteristic movie right into a 7 episode sequence that can begin airing on October 10.
This isn’t simply the film chopped up into bits, however can even embrace “70 new scenes, new music tracks, new open and ending animation, episode previews and new theme songs.” 70 new scenes definitely feels like quite a bit, and it is sensible, give than Mugen Prepare is just below two hours lengthy, which might be six, 20 minute episodes, however this run can be 7 episodes. In order that’s seemingly a major quantity of latest footage.
Then, all of this leads into the Leisure District arc for season 2 itself, which is able to start on Sunday, December 5, and can characteristic an hour-long premiere. Demon Slayer first debuted in 2019, so followers have been ready a really, very very long time for this. Within the interim, the Mugen Prepare film broke all Japanese field workplace data and carried out extraordinarily nicely within the west on the similar time.
One other facet be aware is the truth that a brand new Demon Slayer combating sport is being launched on October 15, which is made by CyberConnect2, and has animation extraordinarily devoted to the unique sequence. That’s popping out on all consoles, together with PS5 and Xbox Sequence X, and PC, and is a full $60 title.
Demon Slayer is a novel success in anime, breaking boundaries into movie and into the west like few different titles earlier than it. There’s loads of manga left to adapt, so I might anticipate to see it round for a superb lengthy whereas. And with fewer delays because of COVID, we are going to in all probability see future seasons take much less time to reach than the everlasting wait we’ve had for season 2 right here. Technically, Funimation is counting the 7 episode Mugen Prepare arc as a part of season 2 going ahead right here, however the never-before seen stuff will start in December as soon as that has wrapped.
Lots to sit up for, and keep tuned for more information together with new trailers, little doubt, as we get nearer.
