Let’s take a deep breath and see what we already know about the third season of one of the best anime series in recent years, Demon Slayer. Check out our guide to Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 to see what else is in store. If you’ve fallen behind, here’s how to watch Demon Slayer from the beginning to the end.
Demon Slayer Season 3 Plot
At night, demons hide in the shadows of the night, waiting to feed on people as a means of sustaining their immortality and existence. Demons attack a destitute but tranquil Japanese household at night, nearly slaughtering them. When Tanjiro, the oldest child, returns home from a night out, he finds his entire family dead except for his younger sister, Nezuko, who is alive. Nezuko, on the other hand, has been converted into a demon and is therefore in danger.
The Demon King, Muzan Kibutsuji, turned out to be the demon who attacked the Kamado household. Trained by Sakonji Urokodaki, a former member of the Demon Slayer Corps, Tanjiro sets out to avenge the death of his family by becoming a Demon Slayer and turning his sister into a human again.
Zenitsu Agatsuma and Inosuke Hashibira join Tanjiro and Nezuko on their journey as fellow Demon Slayers. To become more powerful, the crew sets out on many tasks, but Muzan isn’t one to sit quietly. The 12 Kizuki are a formidable group of demons who are fiercely loyal to Muzan. A few of these demons Tanjiro has encountered have made him aware of the danger they pose to humanity, but he also sees that they are important steps on the way to defeating Muzan. Tanjiro will stop at nothing to defeat the Demon King and bring Nezuko back to life with the help of the Demon Slayer Corps’ fiercest warriors, the Hashiras.
Always together. No matter how many lives. 💕
