Demon Slayer Season 3: Everything You Need To Know

The long wait is over for the Demon Slayer fans, as the anime returns for another season this year with more action and demons.

From its first season, Demon Slayer has become one of the best new-gen anime and has significantly influenced Japanese pop culture. With sales crossing over 150 million manga copies, the series has become the ninth best-selling manga of all time.

As the Demon Slayer season 3 is almost around the corner, we will dive deep into what will happen with the upcoming series.

What Is The Storyline Of Demon Slayer?

Netflix introduces the Demon Slayer series to the viewers as the following: “After a demon attack leaves his family slain and his sister cursed, Tanjiro embarks upon a perilous journey to find a cure and avenge those he’s lost.”

However, this needs to be explained about the rich characters and the extraordinary plot of Demon Slayer. After losing his whole family, Tanjiro vows to save his only sister, who turned into a bloodthirsty demon. He becomes a Demon Slayer to hunt down the demon who killed his family and carries his sister in a box wherever he goes.

He even fought against all the Hashiras to protect his sister at any cost. Against all the odds, Tanjiro survives each fight to become strong enough to defeat Demon King Muzan and his ranks.

What Happened At The End Of Demon Slayer Season 2?

In the Entertainment District Arc, Tanjiro, Inosuke, and Tengen were all wounded by Gyutaro and Daki. However, the demon siblings did not survive this arc, as our Demon Slayers were able to end the sixth-strongest Upper Moon of Muzan. The battle resulted in the Sound Hashira, Tengen Uzui’s retirement, as he lost both an eye and a hand in this process. Hence, Season 3 will pick up where the story ended last time.
