Will Demon Slayer Season 3 conclude the anime series?
Fans were excited as demon slayer announced that the third season had entered the production phase. Fans have every reason to look forward to the upcoming season as Ufotable nailed the animation of the recent arc.
However, fans are discussing the possibilities of the upcoming season marking the end of the anime series. Those who have read the manga analyze the amount of content available and whether or not the upcoming season will conclude the series.
Note: This article explores some of the speculation regarding the length of the series as fans await further announcements from Ufotable.
Will season 3 mark the end of Demon Slayer?
Based on how demon slayer adapts the manga, they are unlikely to include filler episodes. That being said, the chances of Season 3 concluding the series are slim. We know that the third season will begin by adapting the Swordsmith Village arc, which has enough content for around 12-13 episodes. This arc will feature two important fights that take place in Swordsmith Village between members of the Demon Slayer Corps and the demons of the High Moon.
It is highly likely that the third season will end with the adaptation of the Hashira training arc, since the Swordsmith Village arc does not have enough content for 23 episodes. demon slayer could feature a fourth season since the last arc (Final Battle arc) of the series is divided into two parts: the Infinity Castle arc and the Sunrise Countdown arc.
These series arcs have a ton of action, which means that not all of the content can fit into the next season of the series. The final battle arc alone has around 65-68 chapters that need to be adapted. The first season (which had 26 episodes) adapted the first six arcs, which amounted to 52 chapters. Therefore, it only makes sense for demon slayer to have a fourth season that will liven up the entire final battle arc.
While most fans agree with the aforementioned timeline, some believe the Sunrise Countdown arc will follow the Mugen Train arc’s approach. Fans believe that the final arc of the series will be made into a movie while the fourth season will end with the Infinity Castle arc.
Even if this is the case, the series will feature a fourth season since the Infinity Castle arc alone has around 46 chapters that need to be adapted into anime episodes. Therefore, it is very unlikely that the series will have season 3 as its final and final season.
