It’s finally happening, everyone. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is on the road to season three. When the spring rolls in, all eyes will be on Tanjiro as he prepares to take on a new adventure. Of course, some fans have been able to see the season’s start as Demon Slayer’s Swordsmith Village movie has been released in Japan, and now, we have learned the movie will be rated R when it drops stateside.
Yes, that is right. Demon Slayer has earned a second R-rated movie in the United States. The movie was given a restricted rating thanks to its bloody images and violence. This rating is also the second one as such given to Demon Slayer as the anime’s first movie, Mugen Train, was rated R for similar reasons.
Of course, this rating does differ from the one given in Japan. Demon Slayer: To the Swordsmith Village is rated PG-12 overseas. Obviously, this means audiences under the age of 12 should have parental guidance before seeing the flick. In the United States, the equivalent rating would be PG-13, but Demon Slayer’s gore pushed its second movie into a higher rating category.
If you are not caught up with Demon Slayer, you should know the anime is streaming in full for those wanting to binge the show ahead of season three. Hulu and Crunchyroll have the entire series available to stream. And as always, Viz Media has the full Demon Slayer manga available to read in print or online through the Shonen Jump app. Demon Slayer’s new movie will hit theaters stateside on March 4th for those wanting to check it out, and season three will debut on television later this April.
It’s almost time, everyone. It will not be long before Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba returns with a new season, and all eyes are on its comeback. If you did not know, the anime has been working hard behind the scenes to perfect its next arc, and the Swordsmith Village story is one fans won’t want to miss. And thanks to a new trailer, we can see just what season three has in store for us all.
Earlier today, a special Demon Slayer event in Japan ended with the release of a new trailer for season three. As you can see above, the epic clip gives us never-before-seen looks into the comeback. And of course, Tanjiro is looking as fierce as ever with Zenitsu and Inosuke at his side.
For those who haven’t kept up with the series, you should know Demon Slayer is slated to return to the air on April 9th. The show will go live with a one-hour premiere dedicated to Tanjiro and his new adventure. After all, season two sent our hero for a loop, and he is in desperate need of a new sword. This desire will take Tanjiro to the Demon Slayer Corps’ infamous village of swordsmiths. And of course, the upcoming season will focus on some new Hashira such as the Mist Pillar and Love Pillar.
If you are not caught up with Demon Slayer ahead of season three, you still have some time to catch up! The show is streaming over on Hulu and Crunchyroll right now. For those eager to read the manga, Koyoharu Gotouge’s completed series is available to read online through Manga Plus or the Shonen Jump app. And of course, fans will get their first look at season three in March while Demon Slayer: To the Swordsmith Village hits stateside theaters.
