2019 was a special year in which many were successful anime productions that first aired before the pandemic. A record-breaking adventure and dark fantasy anime also met the audience in this special year. Yes, the anime we are talking about is none other than Demon Killer† Although most fans know the series from the anime, the manga is just as popular as the anime. So much that Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is in the top 10 best-selling manga of all time. The second season of the anime, based on the Mugen Train and Entertainment District arcs, aired weekly from October 10, 2021 to February 13, 2022. Both seasons of the anime were animated by the studio Ufotable. The studio that also produces video games rarely makes anime, but they have proven how successful they are in this business with Demon Slayer. Licensed by Aniplex of America, the anime is also gaining popularity with mentions of major streamers such as Netflix and Hulu TV† Currently, the main question marks among fans are about the third season. Continuing our article, we have all known about the third season from Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba.

Will there be a third season of Demon Slayer?

The second season of the anime, consisting of 18 episodes and adapting two arcs, was originally broadcast between October 10, 2021 and February 13, 2022. In the finale of the second season of the anime, there was an announcement that would make the fans happy . The early announcement stated that Demon Slayer is renewed for a third seasonand the Swordsmith Village arc of the manga will be adapted in the 3rd season

Studio changes for anime always come with risks. Fortunately, just like in the first two seasons, Ufotable takes the lead in the new season of the anime. Director Haruo Sotozaki and character designer Akira Matsushima also return for the new season. While no detailed announcement has been made for the cast yet, we believe the main cast will also participate in the new season† The renewal announcement on February 13, 2022 was shared with a visual on the official English Twitter account.

Will the third season be a finale?

The manga series, the main source material, is written and illustrated by Koyoharu Gotouge. The manga originally published by Shueisha is also meeting English readers thanks to Viz Media. The series, which began airing on February 15, 2016, was completed on May 18, 2020, and in total there are 23 parts were published. However, the fact that the manga series is no longer running indicates that the material to be adapted is limited.

The 23 published volumes of the manga series contain 205 chapters. In the first season, the first 53 chapters of the manga were adapted into anime. In the second season, it was adapted to chapter 99. We know that the Swordsmith Village Arc will be adapted in the third season, and this arc features the events between chapters 98 and 127. Given the source material in the manga series, we can see that the third season is not a finale† Since the arc, which is said to have been adapted, doesn’t contain as many scripts as in the first two seasons, it may have fewer episodes than in the first two seasons.

When is the third season of Demon Slayer?

The anime was renewed on February 13, 2022, with the announcement in the second season finale. However, this statement did not contain any information about the season 3 release date† From July 3, 2022, at the time of writing, there is still no announcement of a release date from official channels. However, it is possible to speculate. We know that the production time of anime seasons after renewal is generally about a year. That’s why it seems that it takes at least a year for a major production like Demon Slayer. Also on Twitter, AnimeHype, which leaks news about anime series, gave a similar answer to the question about Season 3. summer of 2023† We will update this section as more official information becomes available.

The popularity of the series

The anime is also one of the most popular productions, just like the manga. According to Myanimelist, the Demon Slayer is the 9th most popular anime of all time† On the other hand, the official Japanese Twitter account is followed by 2.8 million people. This number of followers is hard to achieve for an anime series. In Google searches, we see that anime has a large global search volume. So much that Demon Killer is more sought after than the most popular productions of recent years, such as: Tokyo Revengers and One Punch Man

The anime’s discs are selling quite well, although disc sales have dropped significantly in recent years. A total of 6 volume discs have been sold for the second season of the anime. For current disc sales, 20,706 units were sold in the average of the first 3 volumes. In general, 4,000 discs for an anime is considered good, and with the decline in disc sales in recent years, this number is quite difficult to achieve. However, Demon Slayer’s current sales figure is excellent, despite the decline in disc sales. Demon Slayer was the best-selling anime of the period, and its closest rival, My dress up babymanaged to sell an average of 11,135 units.

The anime is also broadcast worldwide by major distributors such as Hulu TV and Netflix apart from crunchy rolls and Funimation† Taking all this into consideration, we can say that everything is in order financially and we don’t have to worry about extensions for next season.
