Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba: Entertainment District Arc Teaser Trailer
With only 5 days left to premiere, Demon Slayer hyped up the excitement by releasing a new trailer for the Entertainment District arc. It was exclusive to Japanese fans. But it found its way on Twitter. Check out the Arc teaser trailer in the tweet:
One can find 4 new female characters in the teaser along with Uzui. The spookiest of 4 female characters is assumed to be the antagonist of the arc, probably related to Uzui.
The premiere episode will feature a new OP track titled “Zankyo Chi Uta” and the new ending theme “Asa ga Kuru.” Both the theme songs will be performed by Aimer.
How many episodes will ‘Entertainment District Arc’ have?
There has been no official confirmation on the total episodes for the Entertainment District arc. However, there are always speculations based on the manga. They suggest that the Arc will have 11 episodes. This will make Demon Slayer Season 2 have 18 episodes.
It is kinda confusing on the Demon Slayer Season naming convention. However, the Entertainment District arc can be counted as Demon Slayer Season 2 anime, provided the 7 episode Mugen Train movie is not part of the Season.
