Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba TV Anime Season 2 Premieres in 2021. It will concentrate on adapting the manga set in the red-light district of Tokyo to the next arc.
During live-stream yesterday of the Demon Slayer Matsuri Online Anime 2nd Anniversary Festival on AbemaTV, it was announced that the next season of the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba TV anime will premiere in 2021, with the staff and cast returning from the first season and film.
Haruo Sotozaki returns to direct at ufotable for the second season, and Akira Matsushima designs the characters again. The cast from the first television anime season is returning, including Katsuyuki Konishi as Tengen Uzui.
The live stream brought us around to various activities and attractions with key graphics, illustrations from the TV anime series and film, the 19th episode’s original key animation of the hinokami scene, and more. On the Demon Slayer Twitter account, a key visual for the live stream was posted, with the gang looking very snappy in their Taisho-era outfits.
The show was followed in October 2020 by the Demon Slayer-Kimetsu no Yaiba-The Movie: Mugen Train anime film. The film surpassed Spirited Away 2002 by Hayao Miyazaki, its last competitor in Japanese box office history for all-time highest earnings. (In its original run, Spirited Away earned 30.8 billion yen, but has since earned a total of 31.68 billion yen after the revival screenings this summer.) The Demon Slayer film is now at least the world’s second highest-earning anime film of all time, beating your name’s worldwide earnings of US$ 357,986,087. As of February 8, the film had sold 27.07 million tickets for a cumulative total of 37,179,382,650 yen (approximately US$351.6 million).
