Plot for Demon Slayer Season 2
Demon Slayer’s story is set in Taisho-era Japan. It follows the adventures of Tanjro Kamado and his sister Nezuko Kamado. The brother and sister duo seek a cure for Tezuka’s demon curse. The duo gets entangled in the demon slayer corps’ affairs, who have been waging war against the demons for centuries. The demons who were once humans sold their humanity in exchange for power. Now they feed on a human to gain supernatural abilities. With their unique breathing ability, the demon slayers gain superhuman strength, which they deploy to fight the demons. Season 1 showed Tanjiroo transforming into a demon slayer to save his sister and avenge his family members’ death. Season 2 would feed the audience with new drama, emotion, and adventures of Tanjiro. Expectations are that season 2 would introduce new demons with advanced superpowers. It would be interesting to watch whether Tanjiro succeeds in defeating the beasts and manages to get his family back to love or not.
A trailer for season 2 was released early this year. The trailer Yoshiwara red-light district as Tanjiro’s team storms in to destroy the demons in the area. Mysterious robed women are seen watching the demon slayers inaction. The woman is seen with a wicked smile. Looking at the woman’s body language, it seems like it is amongst the demons in perfect disguise. Meanwhile, Tanjiro, Zenitsu, Inosuke, Nezuko, and Tengen Uzui cannot afford to let their guards down as an attack can happen anywhere.
