Things are getting intense for Tanjiro Kamado — and that’s good news for audiences. The theatrical release of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba: To the Hashira Training is nearly upon us, allowing fans of Demon Slayer to fully prepare for the new season of the hit manga with a movie-length reminder of where we’ve been… and a sneak peek of where we’re going. As if that’s not enough, Crunchyroll and Aniplex are giving fans a refresher before the April 2024 season by taking the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba: To the Hashira Training on tour around the world, as well.

It's a tune we’ve heard before from Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – they sent Tanjiro and his crew into cinemas in 2023 to drum up hype for the Swordsmith Village Arc. Just like last year, fans will be treated to the final two episodes of Demon Slayer season 3 followed by a first look at the first episode of season 4, which kicks off the Hashira Training Arc. Last year’s showing debuted the stunning Infinity Castle scene from season 3, so we can’t wait to see what the team at Ufotable has put together for the next season. Demon Slayer is one of the most popular anime in the world at the moment so tickets to see the season 4 premiere early will probably go fast.

  • February 21: Malta
  • February 22: Albania, Argentina, Australia, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Hungary, Lithuania, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Portugal, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland (Italian-speaking), Ukraine, Uruguay, Venezuela
