Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba has officially brought the second season to an end with both its original and English dubbed broadcasts, and as it’s getting ready for the home media release with some fierce new art highlighting Nezuko Kamado. The Entertainment District arc from Koyoharu Gotouge’s original manga series was brought to life over the course of the anime’s second season, and with it had pushed Tanjiro Kamado and the others harder than ever before. Taking on their first real Upper Rank demonic threats, each of them had grown to rise up to face these challenges. This was especially true for Nezuko, who unleashed a whole new level of power.
The Entertainment District arc brought out a whole new side of Nezuko as her body evolved into a much stronger version of her demonic power. Although it came with a sudden boost of strength and speed that allowed her to fight on par with Daki and recover from her injuries at a much faster pace, it also meant the loss of her conscious mind and the control she had been able to maintain. Now the next cover for the Blu-ray release in Japan has put this new Nezuko look front and center with some cool new art. You can check it out below:

The Entertainment District arc officially introduced Tanjiro (and fans) to the first members of the Upper Moons, and they are the true threats for the rest of the series moving forward. Thankfully with the final episode of the second season, it was quickly confirmed that Demon Slayer would be returning for a third season. A release window has yet to be set for the new season just yet, but it has been announced that the new episodes will be picking up with the next major arc from the manga series, Swordsmith Village Arc.
The third season of the series will be introducing more of the Upper Rank demonic threats as well as bringing in more of the Hashira into the fold to kick the action into a whole new realm of intensity. Thankfully now that a third season has been confirmed, it means there’s more time to catch up with the episodes so far. You can check out Demon Slayer’s first two seasons now streaming on Crunchyroll.
