Demon Slayer Season 4 Release Date: What the Hashira Training Arc is About?

Fans are buzzed about the return of the beloved series and just can’t wait to see their favorite characters back on their screens.

Following the heart-blazing conclusion of Season 3, marked by a memorable shot of the Demon Slayer Corps’ Hashira lineup and the Stone Hashira, many were speculating that since this is the last arc before the series’ final arc, it might get the full feature film treatment instead of a seasonal release. However, Ufotable and Aniplex have gone on with their usual television format alongside their special film window.

Demon Slayer Season 4 will delve into the Hashira Training arc, adapting the manga’s penultimate story arc. This arc will see Tanjiro undergo rigorous training to ascend to the esteemed rank of Hashira within the Demon Slayer Corps. The synopsis of the new season outlines Tanjiro’s encounter with the Stone Hashira, Himejima, who is determined to prepare him for the impending battles. The training, intense and demanding, presents seemingly insurmountable challenges. Meanwhile, the barbarian demon lord Muzan continues the relentless pursuit of Nezuko and Ubuyashiki’s location.

With the Hashira Training arc comprising only nine chapters, fans can anticipate and be excited about some major elements from the Infinity Castle arc appearing this season. We just can’t wait to see where the story will take us this year and we cannot wait to see further Ufotable magic. All of the main staff and voice actors from the previous seasons are also set to return for the anime’s latest outing.
