Anime fans are eagerly anticipating the final episode of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba season 3, which will conclude a compelling adaptation of the Swordsmith Village arc from Koyoharu Gotouge's manga.


The new episodes were preceded by a companion feature film titled To the Swordsmith Village, which became a box office hit in Japan and the United States, as anime continues to grow in popularity in the West.

This latest season of Demon Slayer whisks viewers back in time to Japan’s Taishō period, following lead character Tanjiro Kamado after he becomes a slayer in pursuit of revenge for the murder of his family.

An English-language dub has been commissioned by anime streamer Crunchyroll, although some will prefer to hear the original Japanese performances, of course.

To ensure you don't miss a moment, read on for everything you need to know about the release schedule of the rest of Demon Slayer season 3.

Demon Slayer season 3 is based on the Koyoharu Gotouge manga To the Swordsmith Village.

A synopsis for the manga reads: "Tanjiro journeys to a village of swordsmiths and has to explain how his sword was so badly damaged to Hotaru Haganezuka, the smith who made it. While Tanjiro waits for his sword to be repaired, enemies close in.

"The Mist Hashira, Muichiro Tokito, engages the demons, but he’ll need some help from Tanjiro and Genya, another Demon Slayer. It’s bad enough that they have to fight two upper-rank demons, but can they handle a foe who can split itself into four separate bodies and regenerate almost instantly?”
