Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is finally coming up to the Swordsmith Village Arc, and we promise this time it’s not just a recap. For the viewers who came out of the theater expecting the next great chapter in the hit anime, this is where Tanjiro ventures next to get his sword repaired. This season also features the same fabulous production values and style that sold us all on the original, and we can’t wait. Demon Slayer season 3 episode 1 can’t release soon enough.

Along with this season’s premiere, we’ve got some teases for the Upper-Rank demons to feature for the series. Gyokko and Hantengu are among the first to feature in the arc, which begins in Chapter 98. The arc runs for 30 chapters until #127, and if the series is to adapt the full manga, there are only 2 remaining arcs after that. Be sure to tune in for Demon Slayer season 3 upon its release, it’s been a total treat ever since episode 1!
