Demon Slayer Season 2: Plot
The plot of Demon Slayer Season 2 will likely begin where the movie ‘Mugen Train’ ends. Chronologically, the first season is followed by the feature film, which will later be followed by Demon Slayer Season 2. The anime is a heartfelt adaptation of the manga series. So it’s clear that the show will follow the manga plot for the sequel.
Viewers saw in the movie Mugen Train that Flame Hashira, Kyojuro Rengoku, takes Tanjiro’s party for a new adventure. At the same time, Muzan is emerging in an alternative dimension. Frustrated, he kills his clan’s six Lower Moons. These members were the lower-ranking demons in Muzan’s 12-moon forces. This action was intended to make the remaining six Upper Moons even more substantial for the future. The training elements foreshadow an epic showdown between Tanjiro and the Demon Slayer Corps and the remaining demons.
What happened in Demon Slayer Mugen Train FIlm?
The story in Mugen Train is a direct access to the events of the final episode of Demon Slayer Season 1. The plot concerns the main character Tanjiro and the others who board the Infinity Train. However, they are soon faced with a series of dangers that they are unaware of. The fans’ favorite characters are ready for an adventure that will shape the plot of the show.
Here Tanjiro focuses on the Flame Hashira, Kyojuro Rengoku. The team wants to learn new information from Rengoku. But they don’t know they are facing a danger they haven’t seen before. There is a monster on board their train that Rengoku has focused on, namely Enmu. Enmu happens to be one of the members of the Twelve Demon Moon whose sole motive is to prove himself to the Muzan Kibutsuji. The demon can only do this by executing Tanjiro.
The story goes through the same conflict. The group fights with the demon in the claustrophobic environment of the Mugen train. This movie features some of the most amazing thrilling battle scenes in the Demon Slayer Universe.
