The world has been buzzing, theaters have been packed, and fans have been on the edge of their seats with the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba -To the Hashira Training- World Tour. And guess what? The adventure is just getting started.

Mark your calendars, set your alarms, and maybe even start practicing your breathing techniques because, on Sunday, May 12, 2024, Crunchyroll, in partnership with Aniplex of America, is bringing the much-anticipated Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Hashira Training Arc directly to your screens.

For those of you who've been living under a rock and haven’t caught up with the Demon Slayer saga, here's what you need to know: this series is a big deal. Like, 150 million copies in publication, big deal. Our hero, Tanjiro Kamado, is on a mission to turn his demon-turned sister Nezuko back into a human, slicing through demons and warming hearts with his unwavering resolve. And with animation by Ufotable, you know every slice, dice, and scenic vista is going to be eye-poppingly gorgeous.

Demon Slayer first captured our hearts back in April 2019, and it’s been a rollercoaster of emotions, battles, and breathtaking moments ever since. From the Mugen Train to the Entertainment District and the Swordsmith Village Arcs, we’ve been riding this train (pun intended) through every twist and turn.

And now, the Hashira Training Arc is here to up the ante. We’re talking about the crème de la crème of demon slayers, the Hashira, getting down to serious business in preparation for the final showdown with Muzan Kibutsuji. It’s like the ultimate training montage but with more demons and swords. Each episode promises faith, determination, and, of course, heart-pounding action as Tanjiro and the Hashira get ready to face their toughest challenge yet.

If you, like me, were lucky enough to catch the global movie theater premiere or one of the special world tour screenings in cities like New York, Berlin, or São Paulo, you know just how epic this arc is going to be.
