Those who were expecting an April premiere for the next Demon Slayer anime arc will have to wait just a little longer. It turns out Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Hashira Training Arc will premiere on TV in Japan starting on May 12, 2024. To stoke the flames of hype a little more, a new trailer is here to preview the arc and the new opening theme by MY FIRST STORYxHYDE.

Check it out along with a new key visual below.

The Demon Slayer anime will continue to be directed by Haruo Sotozaki, with Akira Matsushima as character designer and chief animation director and Yuki Kajiura and Go Shiina on music.

Crunchyroll streams all of the Demon Slayer anime thus far and describes it:

It is the Taisho Period in Japan. Tanjiro, a kindhearted boy who sells charcoal for a living, finds his family slaughtered by a demon. To make matters worse, his younger sister Nezuko, the sole survivor, has been transformed into a demon herself.

Though devastated by this grim reality, Tanjiro resolves to become a “demon slayer” so that he can turn his sister back into a human, and kill the demon that massacred his family.
