Demon Slayer fans are a bit confused when the anime returns for Season 3.
Kodoani.com – With the confirmation that Season 3 of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba will adapt the manga’s “Swordsmith Village” spin-off, fans of Zenitsu Agatsuma and Inosuke Hashibira are deeply disappointed. Zenitsu and Inosuke had a breakthrough performance in the “Entertainment District”, making an important contribution to the fight against Gyutaro and Daki. This is why it’s disappointing that Tanjiro Kamado’s companions and best friends will be absent for much of Season 3. In the next storyline of Tanjiro Kamado. Demon SlayerZenitsu and Inosuke don’t go to the story’s typical village with Tanjiro, which means fans of the anime have seen the last of them in a long time.
At the time of writing, Season 3 has yet to give a release date or even a vague estimate of when the anime will return. Two years have passed between Season 1 and Season 2 – although that could be partly due to the fact that the movie Mugen Train was produced – so it could be a while before the Demon Slayer returns. Judging by the manga without going into specifics, it probably won’t be until the hypothetical fourth season that Zenitsu and Inosuke get substantial screen time again. Unfortunately, this means that fans of the characters may have to wait a few years before seeing Inosuke and Zenitsu again.
The Demon Slayer’s “Blacksmith’s Village” part spends time with other characters in the series, so Zenitsu and Inosuke are forced to stay on the sidelines to avoid taking over many other characters. Without any major changes to the manga, Zenitsu and Inosuke’s presence in Season 3 will be minimal. It was a disappointment for sure, but it did explain why Zenitsu and Inosuke had such a hard time in their battle with Gyutaro and Daki – that was beyond their capabilities. Either way, each of them was so badly injured that they could certainly rest, as Zenitsu broke both legs and Inosuke was stabbed through the chest.
Honestly, the end of the “Entertainment District” arc was the best place to get away from Zenitsu and Inosuke for a while. Each of the fan-favorite characters went through significant character development in Season 2, so there’s little about their respective stories that audiences will be waiting to watch as they return. again. Zenitsu eventually grew beyond his fear of demons, as he bravely faced Daki alone several times during the conflict. Inosuke has grown into a reliable, capable Demon Slayer with the ability to save countless lives, including Tengen’s two wives, in Daki’s pantry.
This is not to say that Zenitsu and Inosuke are no longer interesting or relevant characters to the series. Only now is the perfect time to focus on some of the other characters that deserve Season 3’s attention. Demon Slayer is at high risk of stalling as it has settled into the “new demon, you” formula. new pillar body, demon slaying, restoration at Butterfly Mansion, training.” Combining two of the core characters to emphasize the other supporters is a useful move to keep the series from repeating itself. The amount of time that Zenitsu and Inosuke will disappear from the audience’s perspective will also help the film feel fresh again for their eventual return.
Tengen Uzui would not have been able to survive the conflict with the Upper Continent without the help of Tanjiro, Nezuko, Zenitsu and Inosuke. The trade-off for winning the “Amusement Zone” arc is huge, so now is the perfect time for some characters to take a break. Tanjiro and Nezuko are central characters to the entire series, so it’s impossible to exactly remove them from the next storyline. While it’s a shame that Zenitsu and Inosuke have been short on this issue, their performances in Season 2 were just epic enough to keep fans happy with them long enough to endure their upcoming absences.
