Demon Slayer Hashira Training Arc to debut May 7 in Japan

Recommended Posts

Seems like 2-3 years need to pass before it’s cheap enough for the block to pick up. Demarco did say earlier today they do plan to get Swordsmith at a later date, so it’s just a waiting game at this point. 

Id rather see them wait till it’s affordable rather than see them compromise the rest of the block just to get it early.

Maybe it has some sort of "season" pricing model so that Swordsmith+Hashira together will be "Season 3", just as Mugen Train+Entertainment District was "Season 2?"

They’re not likely to consider Hashira Training as season 3 part 2 even for contractual reasons. Mugen Train was just part of season 2 because Aniplex wanted it to air on TV in Japan before running Entertainment District. The others have been standard 3 month length seasons, albeit with some long episodes rather than 12-13 total.

However… nothing says Toonami can’t buy two seasons at once. They might be allowed to do that if they wait long enough. That probably means Fall at the earliest for Swordsmith but it would have to be early 2025 if HT can’t air till a year after the Japanese broadcast starts. There’s almost no sense in waiting that long to air Swordsmith if they can show it sooner if it’s not in a packaged deal.
