Though the anime’s first and second seasons were separated by the wildly successful Mugen Train theatrical anime, Swordsmith Village will once again be a television anime, according to the announcement.
With Demon Slayer’s Yoshiwara-set Entertainment District Arc now wrapped up, the anime’s story progresses to the Swordsmith Village Arc.
Softening the blow, though, was the announcement that the next stage of the ongoing manga-to-anime adaptation has already been greenlit.
Teaser visuals put the spotlight on Mist and Love Hashira. This week’s episode of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba was a bittersweet moment for fans, as it brought the anime’s second season to a close.
