Demon Slayer season 3 plot

As we mentioned above, we know that the plot of Demon Slayer season 3 covers the Swordsmith Village arc.

In terms of the TV series’ source material, that means that chapters 100-127 of Koyoharu Gotouge’s manga will be covered in the anime’s next outing.

In the Demon Slayer manga, the Swordsmith Village arc takes place directly after the events of the Entertainment District arc that was covered back in Demon Slayer season 2.

For those who can’t remember the previous chapter of the anime, the last season of Demon Slayer ended with Tanjiro and Sound Hashira Tengen Uzui making history as they beheaded two upper six members of the Twelve Kizuki: the demonic siblings Gyutaro and Daki.

Although the Demon Slayer gang managed to shake the upper ranks of the demon king Muzan Kibutsuji’s inner circle – which has been unmovable for centuries – Tanjiro also broke his trusty demon-slaying sword in the process of the epic battle.

In order to continue fighting and to retrieve demon blood, which he needs for his quest to turn his sister Nezuko back into a human, Tanjiro needs to fix his blade. The keen-nosed hero, therefore, makes his way to the Swordsmith Village so that Hotaru Haganezuka (the Demon Slayer Corps affiliated swordsmith) can repair his sword.

As luck would have it, the Village the gang heads to holds an ancient weapon. However, not everything is sunshine and roses here, as Tanjiro and his companions may (ok, will definitely) encounter a powerful demon or two while going about their business.

As the trailer also showed us, the Love Hashira Mitsuri Kanroji and the Mist Hashira Muichiro Tokito will be accompanying Tanjiro and Co. too. So hopefully, with the help of the experienced Demon Slayers, all our heroes will make it out alive of the Swordsmith Village.

 Is there a Demon Slayer season 3 trailer?

The good news is that there is a trailer for Demon Slayer season 3! On March 1 2023, Animeify released a clip to promote the fantasy series’ next arc – Swordsmith Village.

In the clip, we see Tanjiro return, with plenty of style and fighting spirit. The video also gives a first look at which Hashiras (the highest-ranking members of the Demon Slayer Corp) are front and centre this season.

Demon Slayer season 2 was split into two arcs, one focusing on 2 Hashiras: the Flame Hashira Kyojuro Rengoku, and the other on the Sound Hashira Tengen Uzui. In the season 3 teaser, we see a new set of Demon Slayer characters highlighted: the Love Hashira Mitsuri Kanroji and the Mist Hashira Muichiro Tokito.
