The upcoming anime will pick up where the movie "Demon Slayer: Mugen Train" left off. It will adapt the Entertainment District Arc, which appears in the ninth volume of the hit manga. In the movie "Mugen Train," Tanjiro, Zenitsu, Inosuke and Nezuko received help from a Flame Hashira, named Kyojuro Rengoku, to end the carnage in the deathly train.

The promotional trailers and stills of "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba" Season 2 hint that the demon slayers will have help from another hashira too. This time, it will be the Sound Hashira Tengen Uzui. Those who have not yet read the manga may not be familiar with Tengen Uzui's capabilities.

Fans got a glimpse of the hashiras in the last few episodes of the first season, but their abilities and powers were not revealed at the time. Those who watched "Demon Slayer: Mugen Train" witnessed the skills and passion of Flame Hashira Kyojuro and how things became more manageable for Tanjiro and the gang with his help.

"Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba" Season 2, with its impressive animation, beautiful narrative and interesting characters, is something fans should watch out for.
