What will Demon Slayer Season 4 be about

Demon Slayer is a popular ongoing anime based on the manga written by Koyoharu Gotouge. While Demon Slayer Season 3 is ongoing and releasing episodes every week, we see a shift of the anticipation from Demon Slayer S3 to a possible storyline revelation of Demon Slayer Season 4. In this article, we will analyze Demon Slayer Season 3 Swordsmith Village Arc and finally lead to our conclusions on what Demon Slayer Season 4 could bring, keeping in mind the narration of the manga and the storyline provided in the same.

Demon Slayer Season 3: The Swordsmith Village Arc’s nature of events

Demon Slayer Season 3 features the battles of Mist Hashira Muichiro Tokito, Love Hashira Mitsuri Kanroji, Tanjiro Kamado, and Genya Shinezugawa against Upper Moon Five Gyokko and Upper Moon Four Hantengu. The battles are intense and filled with twists and digressions.

Throughout the season, we can see how the story constantly digresses to narrate the past of the newly introduced characters. The psychological conflicts of these characters are also resolved up to a certain extent and we see a shift in their nature of conflict. The balance is often created and meditated by Tanjiro, and it is his advice that reaches out to most of the characters including Tokito and Genya.

Demon Slayer Season 3: possible leads for Demon Slayer Season 4

Demon Slayer Season 3 has a lot of possible leads for Demon Slayer Season 4. While most of these follow the basic nature of any story, the protagonist reaching the end goal, the desired goal in Demon Slayer has also been established at the very beginning of the plot, i.e. to kill Muzan Kibutsuji. The death of Muzan also accompanies a major fight sequence with other Upper-Rank Demons and finally one with the lord of these vices, Muzan himself.

  • Demon Slayer Season 4 could bring either an arc with the battles against the final upper moon demons and lead to a final battle arc with Muzan or it could deviate from the manga and create a narrative structure of its own to lengthen the show.
  • While the latter is very unlikely, we can hope that the anime will stick to the manga and follow the Final Battle Arc divided into two sub-arcs.

Demon Slayer Season 4: Major takeaways from the manga + where to watch

The manga of Kimetsu no Yaiba suggests that the Swordsmith Village Arc is followed by the Hashira Training Arc and the Infinity Castle Arc. While the former remains the biggest plot possibility for Demon Slayer Season 4, we might also witness a glimpse into the Final Battle Arc which would be the final showdown.

Demon Slayer Season 4 is likely to be featured as a preface to the final battle with Muzan and this would also act as a possible reinterpretation of the whole idea of defeating evil which is universally appealing to all sections of the audience. Demon Slayer Season 4 would be a glimpse of the Hashira Training Arc and a sneak peek into the final battle. So far, it is stated to be released on Netflix in 2024.
