Kimetsu no Yaiba anime versus manga
The Demon Slayer manga series has already ended. It ended after the release of chapter 205. The manga readers already know how the story will end. So if the anime just wants to catch up with the manga, it can start reading from chapter 98. The first two seasons adapted a total of 97 chapters. After the Swordsmith Village arc, there will be the Hashira Training arc, which will be followed by the pivotal arcs of the series. The Demon Slayer manga series has a total of 205 chapters. The upcoming Swordsmith Village arc is 29 chapters long, which is more than enough to make a full-fledged season.
Demon Slayer season 3 plot details
The next part of Kimetsu no Yaiba begins with Tanjiro trying to fix his sword. However, this time he will embark on a journey to the Swordsmith Village arc for a permanent fix for his blade. Only a select few, including the Hashiras, know the location of this village. So far not a single demon has infiltrated this village. But this fact will change very soon.
When Tanjiro reaches the Swordsmiths’ Village, he encounters the Love Hashira and the Mist Hashira. Not only she, but also Wind Hashira’s younger brother, Genya, will be there. But they soon run into trouble when the Upper Moon Six infiltrate the village. This time, they decide to destroy the swordsmiths’ village once and for all, and therefore Upper Moon Five will also accompany him.
This arc from Demon Slayer Season 3 will finally show Muichiro and Kanroji in action. Fans will also find out Genya’s true skills. It goes without saying that Tanjiro and Nezuko will play an important role in this fight. Of course we will not say how this fight will develop, since you have to watch the third season of the anime to know this part. But make sure you don’t watch the upcoming episodes as the action is too good to miss.
