Demon Slayer and The Promised Neverland were two of the most popular anime series to be released in 2019, with fans waiting for the second seasons of each, and it looks like both franchises are getting ready to release two new chapters of their respective stories. Both series recently wrapped their manga stories, concluding the stories of Tanjiro, Nezuko, Emma, Ray, and Norman that gave audiences definitive endings to these unique worlds of monsters and mayhem. While there hasn't been a sequel series announced for either series as it stands, these are definitely two properties that fans want to see return!
The two manga chapters' stories aren't confirmed as of yet, but the Demon Slayer story is a tad easier to decipher than that of The Promised Neverland. With the upcoming feature length film of Demon Slayer: Mugen Train releasing in Japan this month with a stand alone manga that follows the first adventure of Rengoku, one of the higher ups within the demon slayer corps. With over 4 million copies being printed for fans in Japan who will attend the movie in theaters, it is a certainty that it will find its way to North American shores even though the film isn't being released this year!
Shonen Jump shared the news that both Demon Slayer and The Promised Neverland will be dropping one new chapter of their respective manga, continuing the story of the mangas that have both come to a close, with their anime seasons looking to continue their stories:
