There has yet to be an official confirmation of just how many episodes the Entertainment District arc will last, but early reports have indicated that the new arc probably won't be sticking around for as long as fans would want. At the same time, the new arc did kick off with a special one-hour premiere episode that not only explores the fallout of the Mugen Train arc's events but started setting the stage for what is next to come from the rest of the Entertainment District arc in the coming episodes.
It's the same for the new opening theme sequence as well as fans get their first look at some of the new allies Tanjiro will be meeting along with some teases for the new foes coming their way as well. There are also some other major teases for the rest of the mission hidden throughout the opening as well, so what do you think of it so far? How are you liking this new opening for Demon Slayer's new arc? How does it compare to the opening themes from the Mugen Train arc and the anime's first season?
