Demon Slayer Event Promises to Drop Big News Next Week

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is moving forward with its second season, and all eyes are on what is coming next for Tanjiro. Fans waited quite a while for the show to return to TV, and so far, our heroes have surpassed expectations. And if you need to know more about the anime’s next steps, it seems a new event promises to give you all the info you will ever need.

Not long ago, the official Demon Slayer website updated overseas to confirm a special event slated for January 18. The event will be hosted by Abema as the broadcaster will gather fans online in the name of slaying demons. The website says this special stream will announce two “huge” events regarding the anime this year, and the Entertainment District arc will also be highlighted before the clip wraps.

The report also says Natsuki Hanae will appear in the special as the actor voices Tanjiro. They will appear along with Yuma Takahashi, a producer at Aniplex. The stream will happen in Japan on January 18 at 8:00 PM JST, so fans stateside can expect to hear rumblings on January 17. This means you better catch up with season two because Demon Slayer‘s special will recap what has happened this season so far. And if you don’t want to be spoiled, there is only one thing you can do.

So far, there is no set word on what’s coming for Demon Slayer, but fans do have their guesses. If the announcements involve the anime directly, we could be getting an expanded episode order. Of course, others are hoping a movie is announced at the event while some are pleading for a spin-off series. And given the success of Demon Slayer to date, well – the sky is the limit when it comes to what fans will watch.
