Review of: Demon Slayer: Entertainment District Arc

Brendan Bedard, Reporter

Demon Slayer: Entertainment District Arc was recently released.

The animated Demon Slayer series is based on the popular Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Koyoharu Gotouge. It follows teenage Tanjiro Kamado’s attempts to become a demon slayer after his family is killed and sister turned into a demon. This series picks up after the successful film Demon Slayer: Mugen Train. 

Personally, this arc was one of the best in the series so far.

We see growth in the three main characters Tanjiro, Zenitsu, and Inoske.

We also see another one of the legendary Hashira in action. The Hashira we see is Tengen Uzui, the Sound Hashira. His level of being self-centered and being very respectful tells a good bit of who he is.

The sad part about this season was the lack of episodes. 

There were a total of 11 episodes this season, ending with a longer episode with a run time of 45 minutes.

The animation in this season of Demon Slayer was top tier, maybe even the best animation in 2022.

Ufotable, the animation studio for Demon Slayer, has made quite the reputation with the high quality animation in this season. Now the only thing we have to do is wait another 2 years for the next season.

With how good the animation is, it takes a very long time to for the show’s producers to finish a whole season. This could possibly be the reason for the lack of episodes.

The first season of Demon Slayer had a total of 26 episodes compared to the 11 in the second season. 

There weren’t any major changes in the animation, the animation in the first season was also recognized for how good it was. 

I think maybe because of how well the first season and The Mugen Train Movie did, they wanted to get out the second season as quickly as possible so they stopped at 11 episodes.

Over all 100/10 for this season of Demon Slayer in my opinion.

It is currently streaming on Funimation or Crunchyroll and will be on Netflix in October.
