It’s been months, and we still can’t wipe the tear that Demon Slayer Mugen Train gave us. We wonder what the condition of our main characters would post that and whats the next mission is in the store. Demon Slayer has certainly become one of this generation’s pivotal anime shows. The following it has received is quite amazing for Otakus at the moment. Furthermore, the success Demon Slayer’s first movie, as in Mugen Train, garnered is unspeakable at the moment. So anyway, Demon Slayer Season 2 may come around soon, and here we are discussing its release date and what Episode 1 could be about.
As we said, the audience, especially the non-manga readers, might be most looking forward to the aftermath. No one saw the emotional ending to Mugen Train coming. Everyone walked in for an action-packed sequence which was delivered but in quite a different way. So are the Demon Slayers gonna hold a little while before they strike back Akaza. The demon gave them a deep scar by killing Flame Hashira. Who are the new villains joining in the Season 2 of Demon Slayer? What is The Entertainment District Arc? Let’s find out.
Demon Slayer Season 2 Episode 1 Release Date
At the moment, officially, the creators have said that Demon Slayer Season 2 is aiming for a 2021 release. An exact release date is still in the dark. But multiple reports from outlets in Japan are suggesting an assumable release date that could fit in for the show. At the moment, these are just rumors, but everyone is expecting Demon Slayer Season 2 Episode 1 to release in the fall of 2021. The best is October for sure. That’s the best bet for now.
Apart from that, Demon Slayer Season 2’s next arc is called The Entertainment District Arc. Funimation recently dropped an official trailer for the coming arc. Thus telling us much about where the show is headed. Also note, even that trailer has mentioned solely 2021 as the release date for Demon Slayer Season 2. So before we move into see what the episode might be about, you can anytime catch up with Demon Slayer Season 1, which is available to stream on Netflix. Meanwhile, Demon Slayer Mugen Train is available to buy on Amazon Prime Video, iTunes, VUDU, Microsoft, and Google Play Movies and TV. So anyway, let’s break down what we can expect from the first episode of the show.
Demon Slayer Season 2 Episode 1 Plot – What Could Be It About?
Well, for starters, we believe Demon Slayer Season 2 Episode 1 will set up the aftermath of the movie as expected. Yes, the ending of Demon Slayer: Mugen Train was something no one saw coming and emotional to another level. It saw an ultimate battle between demon Akaza who is one of the strongest yet, against The Flame Hashira Kyojuro. The battle ended with Akaza running away from the daylight, but the bloodshed was enough, leading Kyojuro to say goodbyes to the world despite one of the fiercest battles he put on.
Each and every Demon Slayer around, from Tanjiro to Zenitus to Inosuke, was in tears. Including the ones on other missions who already have an intuition that Flame Hashira has died a warrior’s death. We believe the Demon Slayer Season 2 Episode 1 would be all about coping with the loss and honoring the warrior. Some new resolutions and promises will be coming. Until they plan their next move to prepare themselves for Akaza to return along the way. Well, until Akaza comes, the new trailer for Entertainment District Arc tells us a different story as well.
Tanjiro, Nezuko, Zenitsu and Inosuke are back, along with the Sound Hashira, Tengen Uzui.

The official trailer sees some new faces and places making their presence. Especially the girl hiding her eye coming in first seems to be the next strong demon. Apart from that, the place our Demon Slayers will be exploring is the one that slumbers in the day while dwells in the dark. We also have some new female characters.
Most importantly, like it has been for a while. Tengen Uzui seems to be an important one moving into the show. The character shines as the biggest in the trailer, and it seems like he might have an important part to play here. Apart from that, we believe whoever this new villain is or probably Akaza’s return in the future. This, in turn, is bringing us closer to Mizan Kitsubuji, and we are not far from another war.
