With the success of Demon Slayer: The Mugen Train, fans are now looking forward to the coming of Demon Slayer Season 2. Turning into a huge blockbuster film and breaking many movie records, the movie set a high expectation for the series.
Demon Slayer: The Mugen Train has become Japan's highest-grossing movie of all time, grossing about $197.9 million at the box office, per BlockToro. It is also the no. 1 movie for the past five weeks and it continuously wows the audience.
As the film sets up a high tone, can Demon Slayer Season 2 live up to the expectations? According to Finance Rewind, its manga version is the first of its class book that sold 60 million duplicates.
Its anime adaptation, on the other hand, is dubbed as the Anime of the Year and Best Anime. With the success of its first season, what can fans expect in the second installment?
Season 2 will continue the remnants of the previous season. Here, Tanjiro will avenge the death of his family and the evil transformation of his sister. Can he help his sister to return to her human form?
Demon Slayer Season 2 will also continue the events after Demon Slayer: The Mugen Train. Fans are about to see Muzan's appearance, being the main villain of the story.
To recall, Tanjiro now has more power and strength after meeting Giyu Tomioka, who helped him turn into a demon himself. This is the only way that the Kanoe-ranked member of the Demon Slayer Corps can face the demons that killed his family and took his sister, so he never hesitated to become one.
