The film and the second season of the fiction Demon Slayer should be released, more precisely in autumn 2020 for the first one and during 2021 for the second one.
While Season 1 was a huge success in Japan, what will happen next?
The first season of Demon Slayer was a huge success in Japan and then in France, which is one of the reasons why manga fans all over the world were looking forward to the second season!
A second season quickly programmed by Studio Ufotable, which quickly became aware of the success of the first part of the saga.
After a rather confidential first launch, Demon Slayer intends to become a cult manga with its second season.
As a reminder, this particularly successful series tells the story of an extraordinary vampire hunter. With a major success in Japan, this manga incubated in a real factory of hits of the genre -Kimetsu no Yaiba- is initially passed somewhat unnoticed in France, until its adaptation in anime, broadcast simultaneously with Japan on the platform of VOD Wakanim, propels it to the rank of the most popular series of the moment!
Aniplex, producer of the anime series in Japan, was so certain of success that the adaptation would meet with success that he had immediately ordered a first season composed of 26 episodes, a much longer time frame compared to the average anime manga.
“At the start of the anime, we had little visibility in France, but the series was a hit”, it was explained on the side of Wakanim, which refuses to provide exact figures while ensuring that the audience of Demon Slayer competes with other important productions such as Sword Art Online or The Attack of the Titans.
To establish its reputation, the series has been recommended by many influential youtubers and video game players. In just a few weeks, Demon Slayer has made a real name for itself in the world of anime manga, even winning the accolade of Ninja, one of the most renowned professional video game players.
Episode 19 of the first season has been widely commented by Internet users. This episode, which features a key fight with strong emotions, is presented by many fans of the genre as one of the best anime scenes.
Demon Slayer Season 2: An expected release in 2021
Thanks to a particularly successful Season 1, Tanjiro, hero of Demon Slayer, has thus managed to become truly unique in the manga universe, notably by his kindness and clemency. What about season 2?
Season 2 of Demon Slayer should thus, according to information gathered from various specialists of the manga genre, be released in 2021. A release somewhat postponed by the arrival of the film Demon Slayer Kimetsu no Yaiba: Infinity Train Arc, to be released in October 2020.
In order to preserve the chronology of the manga, fans will first have to watch the first season of Demon Slayer, whose episodes are available on several streaming platforms, before continuing with the film, then watch the second season in 2021.
For fans of the manga genre, Netflix platform offers many other cult animes, such as season 2 of One-Punch Man!
