New Key Visual Revealed for Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Entertainment District Arc

Anplex's live-streamed "Kimetsu TV News Announcement Special" for the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba anime announced on Tuesday that the Kimetsu no Yaiba: Ykaku-hen (Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Entertainment District Arc) television anime will air on 30 stations and channels this year, covering most of Japan (including Fuji TV and Tokyo MX). Until far, Aniplex's numerous programmes have only shown on a maximum of 21 stations, according to the company. With a short teaser video, Aniplex also unveiled a new key visual:

The anime film Demon Slayer – Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train will be re-released in 383 Japanese theatres for a short "final screening" run from July 22 to July 29. To commemorate Kyjur Rengoku's (belated) birthday, the studio ufotable created an exclusive A5-sized birthday card, which will be distributed to moviegoers while supplies last.

The company is also releasing a catalog set for the merchandise available in theatres, as well as seven posters depicting frames from each of the film's cuts. A set of clear file folders, badges showing key animation sketches, and a wind chime modelled on the one shown in the film at the Rengoku family home are among the incoming third round of additional theatrical goods.

On September 4 and 5, Yokohama will host new orchestral concerts dedicated to the film's music. (The music from the television anime was covered at the prior concerts in November.)

On July 5, Aniplex of America released an English-subtitled version of the trailer that Aniplex streamed in Japan when the sequel was revealed in February.

In February 2016, Koyoharu Gotouge debuted the manga in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. In May of 2020, the manga came to a close. In December 2020, Shueisha released the manga's 23rd and final compiled book volume. The manga is published in English by Viz Media.

In April of this year, a television anime based on the manga was released. The anime was licenced by Aniplex of America and aired on Hulu, Crunchyroll, and FunimationNow. The television anime premiered in October 2019 on Adult Swim's Toonami programming block.

In October 2020, the series was followed by the anime film Demon Slayer – Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train. In February, four new short films titled "Kimetsu Gakuen Valentine-hen" (Demon Slayer Academy Valentine Chapter) debuted online.

A novel based on the manga arc that inspired the upcoming Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Entertainment District Arc anime will be released on July 16.
