Demon Slayer: Mugen Train was certainly a rough ride. The tear-jerker of an ending was certainly unexpected. Regardless, a short hiatus later, news of a Demon Slayer Season 2 (aka Kimetsu no Yaiba) began to loom on the horizon. The fans went crazy with the screening first episode(aka Episode 8) of Season 2 on 5th December. It was a special extended episode ‘Sound Hashira, Tengen Uzui’. Needless to stress much, fans are desperate for the premiere of Demon Slayer Season 2 Episode 11.
The naming for Season 2 has undergone a slight alteration from what was originally perceived. The anime was original to be featured under the title Kimetsu no Yaiba: Yūkaku-hen. But, given the complications involved in using the term “prostitution” in the title, it was decided to be Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 2.
The franchise has already revealed that Demon Slayer No Yaiba Season 2 will continue from where the Mugen Train movie left off. Fuji TV has taken over the reins of managing Season 2 given the immense revenue it had raked in on the movie. Previously, TOKYO MX had aired the show sometime late into the night. But, Fuji TV has made a statement to feature the episodes on the “Saturday Premium” 9 PM timings.
Here is a miniature guide of sorts revealing all the possibilities and expectations held from Demon Slayer Season 2 Episode 11.

About Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 2
Season 2 takes off from where Demon Slayer the Movie: Infinity Train left off. So, before you get to Season 2, you might as well watch the film.
Demon Slayer Season 2 Mugen Train Arc wrapped up after 8 episodes, retelling the story of the Mugen Train movie in more detail. After the death of the Fire Hashira, Tanjiro, Inosuke, Nezuko and Zenitsu make their way into the Entertainment District, along with the Sound Hashira, Tengen Usui. The arc will begin from Chapter 70 of the manga and will continue all the way up to chapter 99.
Season 2 sees the trio enter the infamous Yoshiwara district. The real Yoshiwara district was originally a location portrayed as a breeding ground for vice and pleasure. “Coincidentally” in the anime, it’s also the place where demons thrive in huge numbers.
Demon Slayer Season 2 Episode 8 began with the Demon Slayer corps at the Butterfly Mansion. After a bit of commotion and confusion, the mansion finally sees some calm. Tengen is asked where they will be headed for their next mission to which his response is: “the flashiest place in Japan, steeped lust and avarice.” They head for the Entertainment District.
With the events of the Mugen Train still weighing heavily on the heroes’ heads, the upcoming episodes are expected to revolve around unexpected challenges in the paths of Heroes. But they will continue their fight against the demon gang and its leader Kibutsuji Muzan.
The Red Light District story arc has all signs of looking ominous. It will be full of tons of new battles with several new demons. It will not be an over-exaggeration to say that Demon Slayer viewers should prepare mentally for a heart-pounding arc unravelling itself in the coming 10 episodes.
Demon Slayer Season 2 Episode 10 Recap
Demon Slayer Episode 10 was titled ‘What Are You?’ and had Tanjiro, Inosuke and Zenitsu infiltrate the different houses of the Yoshiwara district brothels. However, it doesn’t take long for them to find trouble. The episode begins with Warabihime Oiran killing the mistress of the brothel when she confronts her about the deaths and disappearances of the brothel workers.
As the episode progresses, Inosuke senses a demon in the Ogimoto house and relentlessly chases it, but unfortunately fails to track it. He also realizes that Makio, one of the Uzui’s wives has fallen into deep trouble. At the Kyogoku house, Zenitsu finds a girl sobbing in a room and decides to check on her when he is taken by surprise. Warabihime Oiran, who is actually one of the higher demons of the twelve moons named Daki, appears behind him and he immediately realizes that this is not a human. He intervenes her when she punishes a young worker and then finally lets it go.
Tanjiro is the ideal worker and seems to be working diligently in the Tokito house. His dedication to his work takes the house mistress by surprise and also pleases her. Two days before the infiltration, when Daki kills the mistress of the Kyogoku house, she is visited by Muzan who expresses his approval at her strength and tells her to keep getting stronger but stay on guard.
