The Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Swordsmith Village Arc anime is barreling toward its super-sized 70-minute finale, which will air in Japan on June 18. One day prior, fans in the New York area will be able to head to NYC to behold as the Demon Slayer series takes over Times Square and lights up the city. 

If you’re in the area, you’ll be able to watch it go down on Saturday, June 17 from 9:00pm ET to 10:00pm ET. For everyone else, Crunchyroll’s official Instagram channel will host a live viewing at the same time.

Here’s how the official site describes the first episode of the Swordsmith Village arc:

An Upper Rank Demon has been defeated for the first time in a hundred years by Uzui, Tanjiro, and his comrades’ effort. This news causes a ripple effect not only among the members of the Demon Slayer Corps, but also the Upper Rank Demons, who have been summoned by Muzan Kibutsuji. Meanwhile, Tanjiro is recovering at the Butterfly Mansion when he discovers that he has upset his swordsmith Haganezuka after chipping his sword and decides to head to the village where the swordsmiths live to talk to him in person.
