Why Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Swordsmith Village Arc anime most likely gained’t adapt Hashira Coaching Arc

The primary season of the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba anime sequence was 26 episodes lengthy, and it ended by adapting by Quantity 6: Chapter 51. The Kimetsu no Yaiba film was a direct sequel in regards to the Mugen Prepare story arc.

The Demon Slayer film tailored manga Chapters 52 by 66, which wasn’t the whole lot of the story arc. So the second season’s first cour re-adapted the Mugen Prepare story arc that was lined by the film!

The 7 episodes added extra particulars, particularly the aftermath of the story arc that leads as much as the Leisure District arc. For instance, the re-adaptation lined lacking particulars from the Mugen Prepare arc like Tanjiro visiting Rengoku’s household mansion in manga Chapters 67 by 69.

Arguably, if the 37 chapters of those two story arcs had been mixed they might be the right size for a single-cour Demon Slayer Season 3 with 12 episodes. The issue is that there’s a pure break within the story that happens originally of manga Chapter 128. What’s extra, ending of the Hashira Coaching Arc straight transitions into the Demon Slayer: Infinity Citadel Arc with no clear stopping level so it will be higher for the primary three episodes of Demon Slayer Season 4 to adapt the Hashira Coaching Arc as its starting episodes.
