The second season of Demon Slayer has been in the queue for longer than two years now. After Kimetsu no Yaiba Mugen Train, more and more audience has come along the platter to look forward to the sequel. But before that, Funimation has plans to release a new reboot on its platform. Thus, the Winter 2021 slate is going to be an action-packed time. Let’s take a look at what the streamer has in store for the fans.
Demon Slayer Season 2: Plot Details
The second season of Demon Slayer will begin the story from the point where it left in the Mugen Train movie. Tanjiro, Zenitsu, Inosuke, and Nezuko are still coping with the trauma of Rengoku’s death. When the four get back to the Demon Slayer Corps headquarters, they will be sent to their next mission in the Entertainment District. The secluded part of Tokyo is experiencing times of horror as many women and children are disappearing. Now, the four budding Demon Slayers will reach the district along with Tengen Uzui, The Sound Hashira.
It was shown at the end of the previous season that Muzan Kibutsuji is also operating his demons from the Entertainment District. In the final moments, Muzan is seen in a woman’s disguise. Thus, the next season might also feature a meeting between the main villain and Tanjiro Kamado. Besides that, the demon hunters will continue to fight the demons of the area in order to ensure the safety of the common people there. Thus, Demon Slayer Season 2 is going to be action-packed this time.
