Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba fans can't wait to see what is coming next in the third season because of everything that happened during the second, and the producer behind the anime series has opened up about his favorite elements from the Entertainment District arc. The second season of the anime series wrapped up its run earlier this year, and with it had introduced Tanjiro Kamado and the others to not only the power of the Upper Ranks, but kicked off a whole new kind of battle for the series moving forward. It was full of some of the best sequences in the anime so far.
At a special panel for Demon Slayer's anime during Anime Expo earlier this month (of which ComicBook.com was in attendance), ufotable producer Yuma Takahashi opened up about all sorts of secrets behind the anime's production. When asked about what he particularly enjoyed about the anime's take on the Entertainment District arc, his main response was to point out that he enjoyed seeing how much Tanjiro had grown over the course of the arc. More specifically, he enjoyed the growth in each of the cast's performances.
When speaking about his highlights for Demon Slayer's Entertainment District arc, Takahashi revealed that he enjoyed Tanjiro star Natsuki Hanae's performance and how it seemed like he along with the rest of the cast had elevated each of their performances overall. When asked about performing for the Entertainment District arc, Hanae noted how Tanjiro had become much stronger following the Mugen Train events thanks to inheriting Kyojuro Rengoku's will. But Hanae also noted how the threat from the enemies have gotten much stronger as well.
Both Takahashi and Hanae noted how much had changed for each of the characters since the Mugen Train arc, and it's especially apparent by the end of the Entertainment District arc that each of the young fighters are growing that much more. It's part of the team's goals for the third season to reflect that, and they ultimately hope that fans enjoy what comes next just as much as they enjoyed everything that came before.
