What is the Demon Slayer Swordsmith Village arc all about?

  • The Demon Slayer Swordsmith Village arc is the newest rendition of the anime’s third season. Adapting the manga arc, the anime’s third season will tell the story of Tanjiro Kamado who travels to the Swordsmith village. He shall explain to the maker of his former sword, why his sword got broken.

Tides will really take a turn for hell when two upper-class demons confront our protagonists. If you have noticed so far, it’s easy to see a pattern. The recent arcs have all featured a central Hashira surrounding whom the story has progressed. While Mugen Train took the spotlight of Rengoku Kyoujuro, the Entertainment arc was the tale for sound Hashira Tengen Uzui.

The key player of Demon Slayer Season 3 

  • The Swordsmith Village arc is notably Manga’s most pivotal story arc. Although starting from the Mugen Train story, everything in Demon Slayer manga picks up pace. Mist Hashira Muichiro Tokito will have an enraging role to play.

How his character reaches the anime fanbase is something to wonder about and await. Are you excited for Season 3 and its world tour premiere? Let us know in the comment section down below.
