Anyone excited for the new season of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba set in the Entertainment District Arc, and are wondering when you’ll get to see it? Well, turns out, you won’t have long to wait. Not if Funimation and Crunchyroll have anything to say about it.

Some parental consultation advised.

Funimation and Crunchyroll really have high hopes for this latest season of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. It’s why they’re inviting everyone to watch the Entertainment District Arc this Sunday on December 5, 2021, at 10:45 AM (EST)/7:45 AM (PST). Parents might need to watch with their kids for this arc though, given the subject matter.

As you might expect, you can watch Demon Slayer: Entertainment District Arc on either Funimation or Crunchyroll. If you have no desire to pay a single cent and can stomach ads, then I’d recommend Crunchyroll. You’ll only have access to the version with Japanese audio with English subtitles though in that case. If you want to hear the English dub version, or any dub really, you’re going to have to pay up.

Demon Slayer: Entertainment District Arc ~ Details

The PV says it all. Heck, the thumbnail says it all.

As you can guess from the key art and the teaser trailer above, Demon Slayer: Entertainment District Arc delves into some rather serious subject matter. Basically, the show has the cast head into a red-light district to hunt a demon there. Yeah, this arc will delve into prostitution and the issues surrounding it. Needless to say, parents might want to be present to answer their kids’ inevitable questions about what these ladies are doing. That is, if you intend on letting your kids watch this arc at all.

That said though, my opinion is that if you are a parent, you probably shouldn’t shy away from this subject matter. Based on all the previous story arcs Koyoharu Gotouge did in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, they’re going to handle the subject matter pretty seriously and pretty well. It’d be a shame to miss out on the story just because it just mentions prostitutes and features prostitute characters. Now I’ve said my piece. It’s up to you to decide.
