Demon Slayer season 2 was reported to face a trivial controversy when it was announced. The manga has been completed and many people conveyed their worries regarding the upcoming arc. These people, mostly consisting of parents, were concerned about the portrayal of brothels and the red light area in the arc. Since it was a sensitive era of Japan, the animation of the Entertainment District Arc was being questioned. However, the issue was shortly resolved as the production of the anime continued.
Demon Slayer fans have been waiting to know when the series is coming out. Here are the details of Demon Slayer Season 2 release date and everything else related.
