Rejoice, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba fans! For we finally have news on when we’ll get to see the Swordsmith Village Arc on Crunchyroll. In fact, we’re going to get to see Ep. 1 pretty soon. How soon, you might ask? Well, Crunchyroll‘s latest trailer for this latest season of Demon Slayer actually gives us that date. You can check out that official trailer below, and see for yourself.
Swordsmith Village Arc: A Soon-To-Be New Adventure for Tanjiro and Co.
Crunchyroll is proud to announce that they will soon be streaming Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Swordsmith Village Arc via that official trailer above on YouTube. Said trailer gives us a sneak peek into what will happen in this new season of the anime adaptation of the dark fantasy martial arts adventure manga of the same name by Koyoharu Gotouge.
The trailer for Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Swordsmith Village Arc, as you might expect from the season title, shows off some impressively animated sword-making in action. Not only that, but we finally get to see 2 of the other Hashira fighting, and wielding some highly unusual weapons to boot. The Mist Hashira appears to be using a katana with a broken blade, while the Love Hashira is using what appears to be an urumi (an Indian sword with a flexible blade that’s basically a long steel whip). It’s an interesting mix of weaponry, and one that we’ll get to see very soon.
At the end of that official trailer, we do get a premiere date for this latest season of the anime. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Swordsmith Village Arc will premiere on Sunday, April 9, 2023 on Crunchyroll. That’s literally only 2 days away as of this writing, so you don’t have long to wait at all. Of course, this is a Crunchyroll exclusive, so you will need a paid subscription to watch it.
