After its breakout first season in 2019, Demon Slayer fans have been on the edge of their seats wondering when Season 2 will air. Here is everything we know about the popular anime’s return.

Very few series have captured the imaginations of viewers quite like the first season of Demon Slayer has. Its jaw-dropping art style and brutally dark story about the Kamado siblings avenging their slain family has captivated millions.

However, as soon as the final episode aired in September 2019, fans have been left wondering when the show will be coming back. We’ve got you covered on everything you need to know about the anime’s epic return.

The 2019 breakout anime exploded in popularity. But when is it returning?

Demon Slayer Season 2 release date

The second season of Demon Slayer is set to release in 2021. A trailer for the season was revealed on February 14. No exact release date has been given, but our best guess would be some point in the Fall.

Mugen Train

The theatrical release titled Mugen Train bridged the gap between Season 1 and 2.

Mugen picks up exactly after where the last episode ends, and is an adaptation of the “Demon Train” arc in the manga. Fans of the series will want to watch this in order for Season 2 to make any sense.

Mugen Train also got an incredibly detailed poster for its theatrical release.

What will Season 2 be about?

Season 2 will pick up after the film ends and should open with Tanjiro at the butterfly mansion training to become stronger. The story eventually picks up with his group accompanying the Sound Pillar, Uzui, on a mission in the Entertainment District – one of the most popular storylines in the series.

Fans hyped for Season 2 will have to first watch the Mugen Train film which releases in October.

While it’s hard to gauge how far into the manga the next batch of episodes will adapt, the first season covered a total of six arcs. So if we had to make a rough guess, it should cover the remaining five.

A talented Demon Slayer cosplayer braved the cold and posed as Nezuko Kamado on a rock surrounded by bamboo and snow, adding some nice scenery to her incredible transformation.

Demon Slayer is on its way to becoming one of the biggest anime of all time. But although it boasts all kinds of interesting characters, it’s hard to find one more captivating than Nezuko Kamado.

She used to be human. However, she was attacked and turned into a powerful demon by Muzan Kibutsuji, the series’s main antagonist. Fortunately, she managed to maintain a shred of humanity and refuses to consume human flesh and blood.

Nezuko Kamado is one of the most popular characters in Demon Slayer.

Nezuko’s interesting appearance is one of the main reasons why she’s a popular choice among cosplayers.

She wears a pink kimono, a brown robe, a red and white checkered sash, an orange waistband, pink sandals, and white socks wrapped in thick material.

However, her trademark items include a small pink ribbon in her hair and a bamboo mouthpiece, and her long-flowing hair and bright-pink eyes. We’ve seen many excellent cosplays in our time, but a cosplayer named aniicosplays has joined the ranks as one of the best.

“I had to take the rare chance to take cosplay photos in the snow during the last few days!” she wrote. “enju.cosplay gave me her Nezuko cosplay, and this small bamboo garden in the park by my home was perfect for the shoot!”

“The hairstyle is very unusual for me since I haven’t shown my forehead in years, so I felt really weird at first, but I got used to it. But I feel bad for Nezuko for having to walk around in those shoes, they’re really not made for the snow.”

Anii might have borrowed the outfit from a friend, but she nailed the hair and overall look. The costume is important, but it’s also how you wear it.

It’s fair to say she looks exactly how you’d imagine Nezuko would in real life.

Plus, the fact she’s surrounded by snow and bamboo makes it all-the-more believable, since they pop up quite a lot in the show.
