Demon Slayer aka Kimetsu no Yaiba has finally dropped its very first trailer for season 3 of the anime, “The Swordsmith Arc“. The teaser was released by Aniplex US on 16th April, on their YouTube channel.
The second season which aired till the 13th of February, 2022 wrapped up the ” Entertainment District Arc” from Koyoharu Gotoge’s original manga series which left every fan wanting more. In the second season fans got to see the extraordinary strength of the new breathing technique Tanjiro used, the original breathing technique “Sun Breathing” or “Hinokami Kagura“.
The trailer begins with a scroll showcasing all the iconic and significant moments Tanjiro experienced over the course of the first three arcs (2 seasons):
The tragic death of the Hashira Rengoku Kyojuro, concludes the global blockbuster movie Demon Slayer: Mugen Train (Mugen Train Arc).
In the fierce battle, protagonist Tanjiro Kamado fought along with his team which also included the sound Hashira Tengen Uzui, against the strongest demons he faced so far, the Upper Rank 6 siblings duo of Gyutaro and Daki which concluded the Demon Slayer season 2’s Entertainment District arc.
It also recapped the overall growth of the trio: Tanjiro, Zenitsu, and Inosuke as demon slayers.
After that, a blank scroll is displayed which symbolizes that there’s more to come. And the scroll fills up with brief snippets of the upcoming Arc, Swordsmith Village. Where we get to see the swordsmith wearing Hyottoko masks and laboring on the Nichirin blades with full devotion.
Demon Slayer Season 3 Trailer
The trailer also briefly reintroduces the Mist Hashira Muichiro Tokito and Love Hashira Mitsuri Kanroji, which we have not seen since the anime’s first season (The Hashira meet). This will be the first time fans would get to see the two new Hashiras in action.
However, we didn’t get to see any of the twelve blood moons in the teaser trailer but as shown towards the end of season 2, the upper ranks will certainly make an appearance in the upcoming series.
The Swordsmith Village arc begins with Tanjiro Kamado, his demon sister Nezuko Kamado and their comrades Agatsuma Zenitsu and Hashibira Inosuke traveling to the Swordsmith Village to repair Tanjiro’s badly damaged sword.
Unfortunately, no release date for Demon Slayer season 3 has been confirmed yet. The trailer ends with Tanjiro swinging his sword with full strength towards what we can presume is a bloodthirsty demon.
This series, which is animated by Ufotable studios has been a huge success worldwide. The December 2020 movie, “Mugen Train” which was later made into a seven-episode series has been the highest-grossing movie. It also became the second anime film after Pokemon: The First Movie ever to hit No. 1 at the US box office.
