Kimetsu no Yaiba’s first season has been amazing. It has been labeled by many as the best anime of the year. The fans of the show want to know whether there will be another season of the show. It had become very popular, and there is no doubt about it. Now, the critical question is whether there will be a second season or not. When you look at the popularity of the show, you can see that it deserves to get another season.
But, time and time again we have seen much anime just getting one season even though the second season seemed very likely. The studio, Ufotable, is known to have picked up other anime for further seasons. So, it is possible. Another important thing while looking at renewals are the DVD and Blu-ray sales.

Currently, the world is facing a Coronavirus outbreak, and therefore, the anime industry is also affected. A lot of anime shows have been delayed, and we are not sure if that has affected Demon Slayer or not. However, it will, of course, halt the production, if it was currently underway. Also, the movie which is coming out this year might have to be postponed if the current scenario continues for some time more. So, we will keep you posted with more details ahead!
Also, we have heard that the studio which produced this show, Ufotable, owes more than 4 billion yen tax, and this might be a thing to worry about. The movie has no details out yet, nor there is season 2 details out. The studio is working hard, after even Hikaru Kondo’s concern over the debt of the firm. However, they were really dependent on the huge success of the Demon Slayer, and now due to the Coronavirus pandemic, everything will delay, which will further worsen their issue. So, we will have to see how things work out in the later stage!
What is Demon Slayer?
The Kingdom of Japan has the tradition of being home to the masters of illustration that created manga, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba had an excellent first season as an anime series, having a beautiful fan base in Funimation, Crunchyroll & Hulu. The manga from which the anime takes its story was written & illustrated by Koyoharu Gotōge. And it tells the tale of Tanjiro Kamado, a boy that becomes a demon slayer right after his family is killed and his sister is turned into a demon.
Koyoharu Gotōge’s debut in the highly competitive Japanese illustration scene began in 2013 when Ka Gari Gari was featured in the 70th Jump Treasure Newcomer Manga Awards. Right after Ka Gari Gari, he produces Monju Shiro Kyodai –featured in the second issue of 2014’s Jump Next!–. Followed by Rokkostu.san –which ran in Weekly Shonen 2014– & Haeniwa no Zigzag –published in Weekly Shonen Jump 2015–the latter being a failure and leading to Gotoge’s first editor to suggest to the author to start a series that’s easy to understand for the audience. Gotoge likes the dark tone of demons & swords –and so does the Japanese public– so he took the concepts in Ka Gari Gari and applied them to the Demon Slayer story.
Demon Slayer Back Story
There’s a fun fact about Demon Slayer’s name. Tasuhiko Katayama suggested to Gotoge to work on the original name that the series had when the Japanese author was working on the story: The original title was planned to be Kisatsu no Yaiba. “Satsu” is a strong word in the Japanese language –it means “to kill”–, the word “Kimetsu” emerged from marketing as an easy word for the public to understand, the word means nothing, and Gotoge thinks it is delightful to abbreviate the series title in that manner. “Yaiba” means “sword” or “blade,” so they mixed up those words a bit and got the catchy title.
The Japanese animation studio Ufotable, with a two-decade tradition in the entertainment business –and excellent productions like “Tales of Symphonia”–adapted the manga into an anime TV series which aired in Japan from April 6 to September 28 last year. Right at the end of the series finale, Ufotable decides to release a sequel film scheduled for a premiere on October 16, 2020.-
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is a commercial success; in February 2020, the franchise sold over 40 million copies, making it the best seller in the genre. The anime got great critics and good awards. Demon Slayer is considered one of the best manga of the last decade.
Demon Slayer Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 2 – Plot
It does seem that there will be a second season. But, the wait for the second season might belong. It could take several years or could take no time at all. So far there is no official announcement regarding the second season of the show.
The story of the show follows Tanjiro Kamado, who is just another normal boy who lives with his family and makes a living by selling charcoal. But, on an unfortunate day, his family is attacked by demons, and only Nezuko is left alive. However, she has turned into a demon. So, Tanjiro goes on a mission to save his sister and kill all the demons.
Kimetsu no Yaiba began airing on April 6, 2019, on Tokyo MX. It was later broadcasted on GTV, GYT, BS11, and other Japanese television stations.
Soon Demon Slayer Kimetsu no Yaiba Mugen Train would soon be hitting theaters. The movie is going to focus on Rengoku, which has all the fans very excited! We’re looking forward to more updates from Ufotable, and hopefully, we’ll get more than just a PV and update as well.
