Demon Slayer Season Finale to Run 70 Minutes

Demon Slayer Season Finale to Run 70 MinutesBuckle in for an extended episode of swordfighting and demon slaying with Tanjiro and the crew. It’s been announced that the season finale of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Swordsmith Village Arc will be 70 minutes long.

The episode airs in Japan June 18.

You may remember that the first episode was also an extended one, clocking in at an hour. That episode premiered in theaters ahead of its airing, making a bunch of yen in the process.

We’ll be sad to see Demon Slayer leave the airwaves again, but happy to hear that the finale will be extra long. And maybe, just maybe, we’ll get a teaser of what’s to come next.

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.
