Counted among the most successful anime series of recent times, Demon Slayer tells the story of a coal seller turned demon hunter when his family was slain by the demon king. Fit with rage, Tanjiro sets on the journey to find the demon Muzan Kibutzuji do to him what he did to Tanjiro’s family. With season 1 of the anime portraying Tanjiro as a humble rural boy, we see him transforming into one of the best demon slayers of the corp in season 2, going alone against the upper moon demons. Meanwhile, if you’d like to know about the upper and lower demon moons, we have a comprehensive list of all of the 12 kizuki.
Furthermore, towards the end of Season 2, when Tengen tells Iguro that he is retiring from the corps and hopes that master will accept his retirement. Iguro refuses to hear it, to which Tengen tells him that he can’t fight anymore and names Tanjiro as the next coming Hashira. We believe that if he wanted to, Tengen could have easily continued being a Hashira; it is because he saw Tanjiro’s potential that he decided to step back.
The note on which Demon Slayer season 2 ended can be easily counted among the best, giving viewers a sense of satisfaction watching their favorite protagonist climb up to become one of the best demon slayers ever to be in the corps. Not only, Tanjiro, but we see Zenitsu and Inosuke becoming better demon hunters.

Demon Slayer Swordsmith Village arc – Plot
Fans of Demon Slayer who’ve read the manga would be already aware of the scenarios awaiting us in the upcoming season. However, for the anime-only fans, let us shed some light as to what awaits us in Demon Slayer season 3.
The Swordsmith Village Arc will be adapting manga chapters 100-127. Furthermore, it still remains to be seen how many chapters the animators adapt and how many episodes season 3 will feature.
The start of season 3 is set via the last episode of Demon Slayer season 2, where Tanjiro heavily damages his sword fighting Gyutaro and Daki, the upper moon demons. After defeating the demon duo with the help of Tengen Uzui, Inosuke, Zenitsu, and Nezuko, Tanjiro sets his path to the Swordsmith Village, where he has to explain to Haganezuka as how he damaged his sword and make him repair the Nechirin sword once again.
As the wordsmith begins to work on Tanjiro’s sword, demons close in on them in the village. With another upper moon demon showing up at the village and causing mayhem, Tanjiro has to stop the demon from hurting people. Meanwhile, our protagonist won’t be alone in the fight as the Mist Hashira Muichiro Tokito will be there to kill the demon, along with another character, Genya Shinazugawa.
Demon Slayer Season 3: Release Date
While nothing is official as of now about the release date of Demon Slayer Season 3 Swordsmith Village Arc, we should expect the anime to return around Q3 or Q4 of 2023. Much of the delay can be owed to no recent announcements from Ufotable and a bit to the situation created by Covid19.
Meanwhile, considering that the first season of Demon Slayer ran from the Spring to Fall of 2019, followed by the movie Mugen Train in the Fall of 2021, and with season 2 running from the Fall to winter season of 2021, we can expect season 3 of Demon Slayer to follow the same pattern in 2023. However, given that Ufotable decides to bring Tanjiro and company back to our screen sooner, we’ll make sure to update you.
