Meanwhile, The Sibling's Bond, Mt. Natagumo Arc and The Hashira Meeting/Butterfly Mansion Arc specials will showcase a trailer for a new Ufotable project. The broadcast of these anime specials will reportedly lead to the TV premiere of the phenomenal box office movie, "Demon Slayer-Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mugen Train," which is scheduled for Sept. 25.

It can be recalled that a Twitter user who goes by the name DemonSlayerSc already revealed the TV premiere of "Demon Slayer: Mugen Train" back in July. Aside from releasing new details, the tipster also said the "Demon Slayer" Season 2 release date announcement could happen on Sept. 25.

Many sites reported in February that the second season of the much-awaited anime might premiere in October. Unfortunately, this window is not official as Ufotable has not yet revealed the specific launch date of the anime. What the Japanese animation company has confirmed so far is the anime's second season is coming this year.

"Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba" Season 1 premiered in April 2019. The anime series, which is an adaptation of the Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Koyoharu Gotouge, also streams on Hulu, Crunchyroll, Funimation and Netflix.
