It goes without saying that Demon Slayer is one of the biggest anime in the world, so it is no surprise to learn its dub is in high demand. The show has multiple dubs around the world at this point, and fans were sent to Toonami in the United States weekly when the English dub went live. Of course, audiences have been asking for a way to check out Demon Slayer on-demand dubbed, and that is about to happen at last thanks to Funimation.
It wasn't long ago the licensor published a joint statement with Aniplex of America about the dub. It turns out Funimation will begin airing the entirety of Demon Slayer dubbed starting tomorrow, December 7.
