Post Re: Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba (Season 2 - Oct. 10th)
I forgot to post that Mainland China's Distributor BilliBilli has decided to release Season 2 from today (11/17) at 20:00 CST while the movie's release planned on Dec 2021 has been terminated. As per telax or fax, any interested companies or Distributors may buy release rights from BilliBilli. I was always on doubt earlier whether the movie would be release or not if Ufotable is re-adaption Season 2 from Mugen Train Arc. Well, ultimately, there isn't any losing points for fans there as they can see the additional 70 cuts scenes. But, even if there is any interested companies to buy the film for theatrical release then it's totally meaningless now.

If any of you are interested in watching in Chinese Sub then you can watch it through this link : https://www.bilibili.com/bangumi/media/md28235136

I don't know what is your reaction, but I am happy that Season 2 finally found its way in Mainland China

Winter is coming and a Dutch couple of figure skaters performed during Warsaw Cup 2021 with KNY theme. Their theme song was Tanjiro no Uta. The female skater, Hanna, wore the haori of Shinobu while her partner, Alessio, wore the standard uniform of Demon Slayers Corps:

Obviously huge but I expected more after those initial episode ratings. I guess the late timeslot had a lot to do with these "lesser" ratings.

Oh, it's because of variety of options in watching and also each distribution VOD and PAVOD is barely have a difference in hour. So, viewers are diverse. If DS was only airing in a single network like Tokyo MX or Fuji TV, then ratings would have passed 10...Some other factors are due to 18+ wordings or you know what subtitles is speaking about the life of the people. Another thing, is a small group of people are protesting over lose translation of "遊郭編" to Entertainment District which actually should have been translated to "Red Light District" or should have been in transcripted form "Yūkaku-hen Arc". Well, it's really a big issue because you know how internet reacts on title that are readable 18+.

However, many pranks took place yesterday. Like parents asking to sleep early to get ready for school. Some just disconnected the electric connection to TV. Some parents watch it before to check whether it's suitable for their children or not. But, as what I have seen, I don't see any form of 18+ image just some words are in 18+. Which actually makes parents difficult to understand their child about the usage of words including it's meaning. Well, it will be interesting if upcoming episode have any increase in ratings or not or if it continues to decrease....

given the late time, it is better to take into account the recording rating for the series, Entertainment District 1 was 13.2 and ep 2 was 13.1, the highest recorded for the week.

3 or 4 episodes left in the season right? Can't wait to watch binge-watch the season soon-ish! Personally, I enjoyed the climatic battle of this arc more than the climatic battle of the Mugen Train arc in the manga, so hoping it delivers in the anime. The anime has improved upon all the fights in the manga so far (greatly so in the Tanjiro/Rui fight in season one, and of course the Rengoku/Akaza fight in Mugen Train), so pretty hopeful.

And the time to begin speculating how they'll handle the next arc/arcs approaches! Season 3? Movie 2? Will the final episode reveal the decision like the last episode in season one announcing the Mugen Train movie?

Personally I hope we get another season but the ending of this next arc could have a better impact if it's a movie. I just wish we can get another season this year :'( The Entertainment arc finishing soon makes me miss it already! I also can't wait to binge watch this again!

Was the Entertainment arc this small in manga? I thought I heard from Corpse that the Entertainment arc was quite big arc..

It's the longest arc up to this point, but it's still a relatively short arc and shorter than any after it. (Well, there's a short training arc down the road, but I don't imagine it'll be given too many episodes in the anime.)

The first half of Demon Slayer consists of many short arcs, while the second half (beginning with the arc after the Entertainment District which is airing) only has a few but are much longer to finish the story. All the following arcs are probably too long for a solo movie unless they do the Part 1/Part 2 thing OR split an arc between a season and movie, which could probably work with the final arc, actually.

Ending the series theatrically by adapting the second half of the final arc as a movie would probably be the best way to go in terms of $$$. "See how the biggest phenomenon in Japanese history ends, but only in theaters!"

Thanks Corpse. I wonder if that gimmick will work as big as Mugen Train now that audience know about the episodes eventually making it back to anime/TV but I am sure a "lot" of fans would watch in theaters multiple times.
