It was published in Weekly Shonen Jump from February 2016 to May 2020 with 20 tankobon volumes. Airing final episode, a sequel film was announced and set to premiere in October 2020.
The first season of the manga was released in April 2019 into two parts. It will return with another season later this year.
Official twitter handle of Demon Slayer revealed that it will be released in Japan this year but unfortunately there’s no confirmation date regarding its release. It is expected to get the film in the month of July or August. The second season of the Demon Slayer will be delayed until 2021 due to the coronavirus outbreak. We don’t have any official confirmation, though.
We might see some new characters in the upcoming season but the old lead characters will remain unchanged. It includes Satoshi Hino, Daisuke Hirakawa, Akara Jito, Natsuki Hanae, Yoshitsugu Shimono, Genya Shinazugawa, Tanjiro Kamado, Yosuke Hashibira, Mizuko Kamado, and Zenitsu Agatsuma.
The story of the show is based out of Japan and it is about a young boy named Tanjiro Kamado. He is a Kind-hearted and intelligent boy who lives with his family in the mountains. He is the sole source of income in his family. He makes trips to the nearby village to sell charcoal. Tanjiro Kamado one day returns home and discovers that his family has been slaughtered by a demon.
Tanjiro and his sister Nezuro are the only survivors of the incident. Nezuro turns into a demon after that incident but surprisingly she still shows human emotions and thought. After an encounter with the demon slayer Giyu Tomoika, Tanjiro is recruited by him so that Tanjiro also becomes a demon slayer. He quests help to turn her sister Nezuro back into a human again and avenge the death of the rest of his family.
We expect that season two will start from where season one ended and it will go on with Tanjiro’s quest. It will be interesting to see how Tanjiro avenges the death of his family and how Nezuro becomes a human again.
We have to wait until season two arrives. As we don’t have an affirmation yet, we cannot presume the plot with certainty. We have to wait with patience. We will keep you updated when we get a confirmation from the officials of the Demon Slayer. Until then, keep an eye on our website Nextalerts.
