Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – Entertainment District Arc first cour premieres in October

It is already well know that one of the most successful anime franchise ever — Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba — is getting a Season 2.

What wasn’t known, until this week, was when the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 2 first cour would begin airing.

That, however, is no longer a secret as Fuji TV in Japan revealed their October shows today, and the second season of our favorite anime, aka Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – Entertainment District Arc,  is among them.

According to the Japanese TV station, the anime series will air every Sunday.

 

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – Entertainment District Arc will air through Fall and Winter

While we don’t know the actual date in October Demon Slayer will premiere, it is safe to say it is likely to be pretty early in the month, as Fuji TV the show’s two cours will be airing through both the Fall and Winter anime seasons.

So it will have to kick off soon.

And yes, that means weeks and weeks of Tanjiro, Nezuko et al to look forward to. Yay!

There will also apparently be an announcement about new Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – Entertainment District Arc cast members coming before the end of the month.

It’s finally on it’s way!!!
