November is off to a good start for anime fans. The two biggest streaming platforms Netflix and Amazon Prime have spoiled their Japanese anime subscribers by releasing the first season of the record-breaking anime Demon Slayer.
Long months after its broadcast in Japan, Netflix has finally acquired the rights to broadcast this successful anime which follows the adventures of the young demon hunter Tanjirō. But how long will we have to wait before we see Demon Slayer Season 2 on Netflix?
WE ARE REVEALING ALL THE INFORMATION CURRENTLY HAVING ON THE DEMON SLAYER SEASON 2 RELEASE DATE ON NETFLIX
If you like Japanese culture, you must have heard of it. Upon its release, the manga by Koyoharu Gotōge became one of the most popular manga around in just a few short months. To date, this denier totals more than 150 million volumes in circulation. Rankings, it is tenth among the best-selling manga of all time, with a total of only 23 books.
Demon Slayer is therefore on the verge of becoming a reference manga. Whether in the form of manga or animated series, the franchise is truly making an impact on followers of the genre around the world. Moreover, Bruno de la Cruz, the editor-in-chief of Animascope (an anime magazine), is not surprised by this phenomenal success. He thus declared:
“You can’t say that Demon Slayer’s success lies anyplace other than in the talented hands of its author. Because there is no concept but a mastered storytelling and dramaturgy. We’re quickly in the bath with this injured boy who carries his dying sister in the middle of the snow… Then, there is always something going on in a chapter of Demon Slayer! “.
The manga is even compared by many people to One Piece. Masahiro Choya, manga collection manager at Panini publishing house agrees: “It’s true that Demon Slayer is one of the few series that rivals One Piece if you look at the sales figures in Japan. Both speak about themes dear to the Shonen manga such as the power of friendship and surpassing oneself in difficult times. But I don’t think the phrase ‘heir’ is completely right. They’re two worlds in and of themselves.”
