For centuries, the Demon Slayer Corps has sacredly kept the location of Swordsmith Village a secret. As the village of the greatest forgers, it provides Demon Slayers with the finest weapons, which allow them to fight night-crawling fiends and ensure the safety of humans. After his sword was chipped and deemed useless, Tanjirou Kamado, along with his precious little sister Nezuko, is escorted to the village to receive a new one.

Meanwhile, the death of an Upper Rank Demon disturbs the idle order in the demon world. As Tanjirou becomes acquainted with Mist Hashira Muichirou Tokitou and Love Hashira Mitsuri Kanroji, ferocious powers creep from the shadows and threaten to shatter the Demon Slayers' greatest line of defense.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Katanakaji no Sato-hen adapts chapters 98 to 127 of the manga.

I am only writing this for the sake of the old days of DS and how much I enjoyed previous seasons .at the same time I admit that this season is the least favorite of all previous ones but that doesn't mean it's bad by any means
DS probably has the most number of haters in the anime community and why? the show is constant in all its terms of story, animation, etc. so I don't get what people are complaining about if it's not your type don't watch it

So why this season is heated? basically because of the number of episodes so you feel ...

Demon Slayer Kimetsu no Yaiba Swordsmith Village Arc is probably high up on a lot of people's watchlist this year and for good reasons. The franchise has amassed an enormous fanbase. Helmed by one of the most famed animation studios today, there's no short in terms of expectations for this season. At least that's what it looked like from the surface because prepare yourself, those expectations aren't what truly holds up this season.

Coming straight from the previous seasons, Swordsmith Village Arc immediately features a host of characters ranging from the main cast, the Upper Rank demons, and among characters that we may or may not ...

Perhaps I’ve just grown up. When I watched Season 1 of Demon Slayer a few years ago, I genuinely had a great time with it. Episode 19 had me incredibly emotional, and I was in awe over the world-class animation by Studio Ufotable. The Mugen Train movie was incredible as well, with a very emotional scene at the end. I enjoyed Season 2, but not at the same level of Season 1, since it was mostly fight scenes with very flashy animation. It was not until this season where I noticed how garbage the dialogue is in this series, and maybe it’s just because I’ve ...
