During the special broadcast of the anime “Kimetsu no Yaiba: Infinite Train Edition” that took place on 10th December, the release date of the Third Season of Demon Slayer was announced, alongside a new trailer and a special announcement of season 3 beginning in cinemas worldwide.
It has been almost a year since the second season of the series finished airing. Just like season 1, season 2 was also a huge success for the franchise and fans were anxiously waiting for the season 3 release date and finally, we have the release window. However, some fans will have the opportunity to watch the premiere episode in cinemas in more than 80 countries.
The Third Season will cover the Swordsmith Village Arc of the manga, and the Animation Studio will be ufotable, just like the first two seasons.
Demon Slayer season 3 will start airing in April 2023 in Japan. Fans from outside of Japan can watch the episodes on Crunchyroll. The first episode of this new season will be a 1-hour special, just like the first episode of season 2.
Season 3 Begins In Cinemas
Alongside the announcement of the release date of the third season, a World Tour was also announced by the officials at the special broadcast.
Demon Slayer season 3 World Tour will reach Los Angeles on 18th February at The Orpheum Theatre and other theatres in the United States. The World Tour will go to Canada on 3rd March. Details about the theatrical release in other countries are yet to be announced. The special screening will have the last 2 episodes of season 2 (Entertainment District Arc Ep 11, 12), and 1-hour first episode of season 3 (Swordsmith Village Arc).
The Special Guests present during the Los Angeles event will include the voice actors of Kamado Tanjiro (Hanae Natsuki) and Kamado Nezuko (Akira Kitou).
The producer of this anime franchise, Yuma Takahashi, will accompany these two voice actors.
Aimer (who performed the Opening and Ending song for Season 2 of Demon Slayer) will also be doing a musical performance at this event.
Aniplex USA uploaded a Promotional Reel on Youtube, which had the trailer for the third season and the announcement of the World Tour:
The Swordsmith Village arc’s narrative is that Tanjiro visits a swordsmith village and is forced to explain to Hotaru Haganezuka, the smith who made his sword, how it became so terribly shattered. While Tanjiro waits for his weapon to be repaired, enemies are closing in on him.
To take on the demons, Mist Hashira (Muichiro Tokito) and Tanjiro will be required. Faced with two high-ranking demons, can they handle a monster that can split itself into four distinct bodies and regrow practically instantly?
