Ufotable, a Japanese anime studio, won the hearts of both veterans and newbies. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, originally a manga by Koyoharu Gotouge, was adapted by the studio, and they’ve delivered a critically acclaimed, action-packed couple of seasons.
Demon Slayer fans know the reasons for its popularity. Its visuals are amazing with animations that feel natural and fights that flow like water. Its gritty, unforgiving nature suits everything, especially the charismatic characters and the goosebumps that they give.
The first anime season was released in 2019 and has been a great success. In 2020, Demon Slayer: Mugen Train was made. Season 2 of Demon Slayer: Season 2 airs in 2021.
Two seasons and one movie aren’t enough, though — people want more. Demon Slayer: Season 3 has been announced. Some of the new characters and manga arcs were revealed. It’s great to have all this information.
When will Demon Slayer: Season 3 be released?
That question has been troubling the fans’ minds for some time, and the answer might not be so straightforward.
When is Demon Slayer: Season 3 Out?
As much as we’d like to have the exact Demon Slayer: Season 3 release date, we can only speculate. Unfortunately, Ufotable has not revealed anything about the “when”.
But, with a look into the past, it’s noticeable how the studio is consistent with its work. The majority of their new content is released during fixed times. That means it’s possible to predict when the new Demon Slayer anime chapters are going to be out.
There is a very remote possibility it will be released in fall/winter 2022. But that’s highly unlikely, otherwise an announcement would have been made by now.
Ufotable is known for working on a yearly basis. Between Season 1 and Mugen Train, there was approximately one year. Season 2 took place between the film and the first episode.
So, it’s likely that there will be one year between the second and third seasons. This should be the expectation. Demon Slayer: Season 3 released in 2023. Although optimists anticipate a window of January-April in the next year for optimism, most people think about it as a “next year” scenario. Mid or late 2023.
It’s not possible, though, to confirm the third season is coming out on that date. It could be out in 10 years or tomorrow. Keep your focus on breathing until then.
What is Demon Slayer Season 3 All About? (Spoiler Alert)
Demon Slayer: Season 3 brings Tanjiro and his team to the Swordsmith Village, in a plot known as the Swordsmith Village arc – Chapters 100 to 127 from the manga. Although you can see the trailer, it only contains a few scenes from Season 3. It also shows Tanjiro with his new sword and an ally.
The new arc comes after Tanjiro’s adventures in the Entertainment District arc, covered in the previous season. Season 3 features Tanjiro joining other protagonists. We also get new Demon Slayer characters.
If you don’t mind getting spoilers, then you’re okay with knowing who the new confirmed characters are. Tanjiro and Muichiro Tokito, two Demon Slayer Hashira, head over to Swordsmith Village as Mitsuri Kanoji (the Love Hashira) or Muichiro Kanoji (the Mist Hashira). Oh, don’t forget the demons. You might get to see one or two Upper Moons, and that’s almost confirmed with the sketch the animators released.
The story is a bit spoiler-free. Season 2 viewers may recall that Tanjiro broke the blade of his trusty sword in the last battle of the Entertainment District arc. In the next arc, Tanjiro with his companions travel to Swordsmith Village. The location’s name pretty much explains the reason they’re going there.
That journey isn’t going to be demon-free, of course.
It’s quite safe to expect at least those characters and that plot. However, since there’s some uncertainty around the actual content of Demon Slayer: Season 3, this information is subject to change.
