What You Should Expect From Entertainment District Arc Demon Slayer?
Firstly, The special 1-hour long first episode establishes the narration of the remaining 10 episodes for season 2.
The Entertainment District Arc will also dig deep into Sound Hashira’s character and his backstory. When it comes to the actual swordmates, Tanjiro and Zenitsu will be betaking themselves to a different level altogether.
With all that addressed, The one thing I personally look out for in season 2 is how Zenitsu reacts by seeing a brothel. The yellow-haired swordsman is a ladies’ creep who always revolves around beautiful girls but what if he sees tons of gorgeous women in Yoshiwara?
We would also like Tanjiro to cross paths with Kanao again and more of the Giyu in the new season.
What Chapter To Read For Demon Slayer Season 2 (The Entertainment District Arc)?
If you are unable to wait and are ready to read manga, We suggest you read from Chapter 71 which marks the start of the red light district arc in Demon Slayer.
Demon Slayer Season 2’s red light arc ends at 100th chapter in the manga.
So, This arc is 30 chapters long but is sure a thrilling ride for anyone who enjoys it.
What Sound Track Will Demon Slayer Season 2 Has?
The original singer Lisa will return for season 2 and fans can expect two new theme songs in the form of Zankyo Sanka and Asa ga kuru for the anime.
