There are quite a few new and returning anime franchises that are looking to leave their mark on 2023, but one of the most highly anticipated has been the third season of Demon Slayer. While a release date hasn’t been confirmed, a new trailer has arrived from Ufotable which gives fans a closer look at the Swordsmith Village Arc while also taking the opportunity to share which month we can expect the third season to land. On top of these confirmations, the Shonen anime adaptation has more major things coming next year.
Demon Slayer’s second season saw Tanjiro, Nezuko, Inosuke, and Zenitsu aiding both the Flame Hahsira during the Mugen Train Arc and the Sound Hashira during the Entertainment District Arc. Unfortunately for the young monster hunters, both storylines saw them going through some serious rough patches. The first arc of the season also helped net Demon Slayer the top spot for the biggest anime film of all time, with the battle against Enmu and Akaza resulting in the death of Rengoku. With Tanjiro and company licking their wounds and finding a new mission from Tengen Uzui, the Entertainment District saw them battling a pair of demonic siblings, giving anime viewers one of the biggest battles of the series to date.
