Demon Slayer: The Entertainment District arc

All the way from manga, viewers are going to get new episodes with a new arc. As there are just a few days left before Kimetsu no Yaiba airs, Ufotable has released a sneak peek of the upcoming arc to get its viewers even more excited. here is the new trailer:

Tanjiro may have gotten stronger than before but he is about to face more dangerous demons than Akaza. First Kyōjurō Rengoku and now Tengen Uzui. Tanjiro is about to fight alongside another Hashira. Tengen Uzui is the sound Hashira and the Yoshiwara Entertainment District falls under his territory.

The official synopsis of Demon Slayer season 2 gives an overview as to what to expect from this arc. Tengen, the Sound Hashira, alongside Tanjiro, Inosuke, and Zenitsu set out on a mission to Yoshiwara to look for his missing wife who was investigating stories of demons in the area.

The viewers can expect to see more of Tanjiro and nezuko fighting combo and more of upper moon demons or even Muzan in action.

Kimetsu no Yaiba: Recap

previously we have seen Rengoku and Akaza going all out. Even though Akaza had an upper hand, our flame Hashira was also on par with him even after getting severe injuries. The upper moon offers rengoku to come and join him to become a demon, but he refuses him again and again.

Rengoku gets hold of Akaza and tries to take off his head. As this close combat continues, the upper moon demon had to cut his own arm to get away from flame hashira. As the sun is about to rise akaza runs towards the forest, suddenly tanjiro throws his sword and while crying calls the demon a coward.

A few moments later tanjiro had a small talk with Rengoku about the Hinokami Kagura technique and passes on a message for his family. As he is taking his last breaths, in those last moments he sees his mother and seeks comfort.
