Demon Slayer Season 3 Release Date:
Season 3 of Kimetsu no Yaiba was recently revealed. It is now the most discussed topic among anime lovers. The third season has been announced after the end of the second. Demon Slayer Season 3 production has finally been confirmed, with a spring 2023 release date.
Demon Slayer Season 3: What to Expect
Season 3 of Demon Slayer will adapt the manga’s “Swordsmith Village” storyline, as mentioned earlier. Tanjiro’s Nichirin sword, the only weapon useful against demons, needs serious repairs after defeating Daki and Gyutaro – Upper Moon 6 – in Season 2. As a result, he goes to the Swordsmith Village to enlist the help of Hotaru Haganezuka, the swordsmith who has made all of Tanjiro’s weapons so far. However, as with any Demon Slayer bow, opponents lurk around every corner.
While the Hashiras were only seen briefly during an encounter in Season 1, Episode 21, Tanjiro and his companions gradually become more familiar with each of them. Hashiras have a habit of becoming fan favorites, from Giyuu Tomioka, the Water Hashira, and Shinobu Kocho, the Insect Hashira, in Season 1 to Kyojuro Rengoku, the Flame Hashira, in Demon Slayer: Mugen Train to Tengen Uzui, the Sound Hashira , in Season 2. As the third season approaches, a billboard teases the arrival of Muichiro Tokito, the Mist Hashira, and Mitsuri Kanroji, the Love Hashira, each of whom will have their moments to shine.
Haruo Sotozaki and Akira Matsushima return as director and character designer respectively, according to the official Demon Slayer English Twitter account.
How old is Nezuko in ‘Demon Slayer’ Season 2?
When the story began, Nezuko and Tanjiro were only 12 and 13 years old, respectively. Tanjiro did everything possible to find a cure as soon as he discovered she was a demon, even if that meant joining the Demon Slayers.
Nezuko took a break after two years of training to refresh her batteries. Her age would put her at 14 at the start of the series, but since demons don’t age, she should still be 12.
Nezuko’s life changed drastically when she became a demon. Stiletto nails are becoming more and more popular. Her hair now had a flaming orange shade below her waist, unlike before, when it was just black.
Nezuko, on the other hand, wore her usual pink kimono and dark brown hair for the day. When changed, it grows from her forehead and mimics veins on her skin.
Despite her changes, Nezuko remained the sweet girl she was as a person. Her caring nature remained intact, despite the fact that she had lost all memories of her human self.
She was encouraged to continue to care for others as she did for her children and hubby after meeting Sakonji Urokodaki.
She may also experience basic emotions such as joy and sadness. She may seem emotionally detached from humans because she is a demon, yet she is more collected than most of her fellow demons.

Let’s enjoy the season 3 trailer below,
How many episodes does Demon Slayer season 3 have?
It will showcase the highly anticipated Upper Moon rendezvous with Muzan Kibutsuji. The teaser of the third season of Demon Slayer announced that the Swordsmith Village Arc will be modified. It should adapt to about 10-12 episodes and cover about 25 chapters of the manga.
Can I watch Season 3 of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba on Crunchyroll or Netflix?
The North American streaming rights for Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Swordsmith Village Arc are yet to be determined. Seasons 1 and 2 of the show debuted on Crunchyroll and Funimation, respectively, while the first season of Demon Slayer was uploaded to Netflix shortly before Season 2 debuted. Now that Funimation and Crunchyroll came together last year following Sony’s acquisition of the latter, the third season of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is more likely to be released on Crunchyroll. However, it’s unlikely we’ll hear an answer to this question until closer to the show’s actual release date, and it’s even less likely we’ll find out about it before the release date is revealed.
