It took a few years to happen, but Demon Slayer isn't playing around with fans any longer. After a long way, netizens got word this week that Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is gunning for a second season. The news was shared to butter fans up for Valentine's Day, and it goes without saying the ploy worked. Netziens around the world are amped for the big season, and they're eager to see what the show's Entertainment District arc has in store!
This big announcement was made in Japan just in time for Valentine's Day. The cast and crew behind Demon Slayer held a live stream event to showcase some of the series' biggest goods coming in 2021. As you can imagine, the team had a lot to share about the anime's upcoming console game title, but everything went mad when season two made its debut.

With a second season confirmed, fans are looking forward to seeing how ufotable, the studio behind Demon Slayer, will handle the pressure. The anime's first season was a runaway hit, and it helped Koyoharu Gotouge's manga skyrocket in sales. Some fans questioned if the success was a fluke, but the release of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba - Mugen Train squashed such an idea. The film is currently the highest-grossing in Japan to date, and it will become the highest-grossing anime film worldwide before the year is out. Tanjiro is something special, so the pressure is on to make season two something spectacular.
