We knew that Demon Slayer season 2 was expected at the end of 2021, although we still did not have a release date in France, or even in Japan. Today, we still do not have a release date, but the Japanese channel Fuji TV is finally giving a track. The Arc of the Pleasure District (aka district rouge) of season 2 of Demon Slayer will debut in animated from this fall, so potentially from next month. It will run until winter, and it would air without any content change from the manga, according to Yuriko Nakamura, the programming director of Fuji TV, who spoke to the press today.
This upcoming Demon Slayer season 2 is a direct sequel to the events of the film Demon Slayer: Infinity Train, which itself is a sequel to season 1 of the TV series. In short: if you plan to start watching Kimetsu no Yaiba, the order to follow will necessarily be the following: First season 1, then the film Demon Slayer: Infinity Train, and then season 2.
Demon Slayer season 2 will be hot
The story arc of season 2 takes place in a location inspired by the Yoshiwara district of Tokyo. It’s about Red light district of Tokyo, which means concretely that there is a concentration of prostitutes and other leisure activities of a sexual nature.
You will then understand why this season will be broadcast on Fuji TV every Sunday at 11:15 p.m. (Japanese time), starting in October. The programming director also indicated that these new episodes will still be on the air next winter, which should give us around 20 episodes according to a first quick estimate, if we assume that we have around 4 episodes per month, for 5 months (which was not specified, let’s be clear).
No precise date has been given by the channel, but it is likely that it is linked to the release of the video game Demon Slayer: Hinokami Chronicles, since the game will be released on October 15.
No content modification or censorship
The head of Fuji TV, confirmed that the channel will broadcast the season without any changes to the content. The second season will therefore adapt the Pleasure District arc, one of the favorite arcs for fans of the manga, which takes place mainly in the red light district of a city. As we said, this season shows quite a bit of suggestive content, but Yuriko Nakamura has confirmed that the series has successfully passed the controls, and that it will be released without any changes or censorship from the original story. Funimation has confirmed that it will simultaneously broadcast the series internationally, on a simulcast.
