All my life, I’ve only watched anime through Gogoanime or Crunchyroll because no other platforms were readily available. Finally, after the K-drama wave, the world became invested in anime too. In recent times, anime has reached movie theatres and, ultimately, OTT platforms too. In the beginning, Amazon barely got hold of popular anime, which disappointed Otakus (anime fans). Finally, Amazon managed to get Demon Slayers (Kimetsu no Yaiba) the movie as well as season 1 and the first season of Naruto, two popular anime with a record of being the most revenue-generating anime of all time.
Kimetsu no Yaiba season 2 trailer:
According to the trailer, Tanjiro Kamado lives with his parents and siblings and provides for the family by selling charcoal. He returns home one day and finds his family murdered by the hands of demons. Only his sister, Nezuko, survives, but she too half turns into a demon. Tanjiro decides to avenge his family by becoming a demon slayer and seeks a cure for his sister. They both begin their journey using Tanjiro’s sword skills and Nezuko’s demonic powers.
Kimetsu no Yaiba season 2 release date:
The release of season 2 of the Demon Slayer can be predicted to be at the end of Jan of 2023. Based on the current update, there are almost 18 episodes this season. The anime is generally released nine months after it gets released in Japan. If we calculate based on that, then the anime should be released outside Japan by November or December this year. The possibilities are immense, but as fans, we can only wait for the release of season 2 to be official.
Kimetsu no Yaiba voice actors:
The main characters include Tanjiro Kamado, dubbed in English by Zach Aguilar, and Tanjiro’s sister Nezuko Kamado voiced by Abby Trott. Zenit Agatsuma is another main character dubbed by Aleks le, followed by Bryce Papenbrok, who dubs Inosuke Hashibira. Many people prefer Japanese voice actors over English, which loses the Japanese essence. This is why subbing is loved by many anime lovers. Natsuki Hanae voices Tanjiro Kamado in the Japanese version, while Akari Kito voices Nezuko Kamado. Hiro Shimono voices Agatsuma Zanitsu, and Yoshitsugu Matsuoka voices Inosuke Hashibira. The Japanese voice actors are very popular and are known for their other works. Natsuki Hanae has voiced Genshin Impact and Ken Kaneki, the main character of Tokyo Ghoul.
