Demon Slayer Season 2 To Re-adapt Mugen Train Arc

Initially, several reports suggested that Demon Slayer‘s second season would release sometime in October. Fortunately, the rumors were correct, and Season 2 is officially confirmed to premiere on October 10th, 2021.

However, as per the official announcement, the first seven episodes of Season 2 will readapt the Infinity Train Arc, the same arc on which the Mugen Train movie is based. So, the much-awaited Entertainment District Arc will begin on December 5th with the eighth episode.

Now, Demon Slayer fans were hoping to see the new Entertainment District Arc begin in October. However, now everyone will have to sit through seven episodes and rewatch the Mugen Train Arc before moving on to the new arc.

Of course, the anime TV version of the Infinity Train arc would consist of several new scenes and an original episode around Kyojuro Rengoku. But that doesn’t change the fact that fans will have to wait two more months for the Entertainment District Arc. So, it’s no shocker that several fans went to Twitter to express their disappointment around it.

It’s clear that some fans are disappointed, but getting Mugen Train Arc in season 2 is obviously suitable for people who haven’t watched the movie.

Also, the Entertainment District Arc will begin with a 1-hour long episode, which indeed puts a smile on everyone’s face.
