Aniplex, the company responsible for the editing and distribution of the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba anime, has shown the first trailer full of the second season of the series. The one that is already one of the most successful manganime of the decade, with sales records for its comic in Japan during 2020, will arrive in Spain with its first season by Selecta Vision, but what about the second season? Let’s get to know all details confirmed.
The first and foremost, at least for lovers of the award-winning animation of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, is that Ufotable will continue to be the animation studio tasked with turning those vignettes into a frenzy of action and color. If the first season spanned volumes 1 through 6 of Koyoharu Gotōge’s manga; and the film, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Infinite Train did the same with volumes 7 and 8 of the manga, this Season 2 will cover -without spoilers- the Red Light District Arch; also know as Arch of the Entertainment District, which collects nothing less than 30 manga chapters (70 to 99).
Everything we know about Kimetsu no Yaiba anime season 2
At the moment, the second season of Guardians of the Night, as manga and anime are known in Spain, does not have exact release date, but it is expected to arrive before the end of this year 2021. If everything goes according to the usual plans of the producers, it is plausible to think of a premiere between the months of October and November, according to the beginning of the fall season. The total number of episodes of this second season has not transpired. The direct reference is Season 1, which like many other seasonal anime series consisted of 26 episodes.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba it is an overwhelming success. With more than 82 million volumes sold in 2020 alone and more than 10 million in the first half of 2021, in a few years it has entered the select group of Japanese comics capable of exceeding 100 million units. In addition, the Infinity Train movie is the highest grossing film of all time in Japan; without distinction of genders.
The long-awaited CyberConnect 2 video game, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles, will arrive in the West this October 15, including Europe and the United States, for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, PS4 and PC via Steam . It will arrive located in Spanish.
