Demon Slayer novels in English – The Flower of Happiness, One-Winged Butterfly, and Signs from the Wind starting Fall, 2022

As the Demon Slayer franchise gets bigger and bigger, Viz Media has just announced there are three Demon Slayer novels in English on their way as well.


The Demon Slayer novels are called The Flower of Happiness, One-Winged Butterfly, and Signs from the Wind, with the first in the series releasing in English in Fall, 2022.

The books have already been published in Japanese, with The Flower of Happiness coming out in February 2019.

One-Winged Butterfly then followed in October 2019, with Signs from the Wind arriving on shelves in July 2020.

The three books were written by Aya Yajima, who is also the author of Blue Exorcist and SPY x FAMILY: Kazoku no Shouzou.

The Demon Slayer franchise is, of course, ridiculously popular with, not only various anime releases already out, but all manner of merchandise related to the series as well.

Its popularity began when the first season of the anime premiered in April, 2019, with its follow up — the Demon Slayer – Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train — coming out in Japan in late 2020.

That film went on to become the highest-earning film worldwide that year, ultimately grossing over $500 million at the box office.

The Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Entertainment District Arc TV series came out in late 2021.

Its follow up — the Swordsmith Village Arcwas announced earlier this week.
