It will also be available on the European streaming service Wakanim and Hulu in the USA on the same day as well.
As previously mentioned, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Mugen Train Arc is a seven-episode adaptation of Demon Slayer the Movie: Mugen Train that includes “an original episode, 70 new scenes, new music tracks, new open and ending animation, episode previews, and new theme songs.” The original episode will see “Kyojuro Rengoku taking on a new mission on the way to the Mugen Train.”
Furthermore, LiSA will return to sing the theme songs for the series with the opening theme “Akeboshi” and the ending theme “Shirogane.”
Then, on December 5, the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Entertainment District – the show’s second season – will debut and will introduce a brand-new villain in the major demon Daki, who will be voiced by Miyuki Sawashiro.

The Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Tanjiro Kamado, Unwavering Resolve Arc premiered in 2019 and is based on Koyoharu Gotoge’s manga and we called it one of the best new anime of that year.
