How To Watch Demon Slayer: The Swordsmith Village Arc At Home

"Demon Slayer" has been setting the anime world on fire since 2019. Not only is the adaptation of the manga by Koyoharu Gotouge a gorgeously animated shonen series, but it's also so popular that its first film stole the box office record from Hayao Miyazaki's "Spirited Away," one of the most beloved anime movies of all time.

No doubt, it's this success that motivated Crunchyroll to bring the first episode of Season 3 to theaters in North America as part of a special event that included the last two episodes of Season 2 on the big screen as well. "Demon Slayer: To the Swordsmith Village" may have allowed fans of the series to see where things were going with the Demon Sayer Corps early, but now those who missed their chance to catch the limited theatrical premiere will soon be able to see what all of the hype is about as well. That's right, Season 3 of "Demon Slayer" is officially coming to Crunchyroll this very weekend.

The latest Demon Slayer arc officially begins on April 9th

All you have to do to watch The Swordsmith Village arc of "Demon Slayer" from the comfort of your own home is subscribe to Crunchyroll. The service has merged with its former competitor, Funimation, and, as such, is the only place to catch a simulcast of the new episodes in the hit series on the same day that they air in Japan.

While Season 1 is on Netflix in some regions, it's unlikely that any other seasons will be making the jump, as Netflix commonly only receives the first seasons of popular anime services, likely as a way to reach out to a broader audience and help bring them over to a dedicated anime service.

Either way, with the Mist Hashira and the Love Hashira joining Tanjiro Kamado (Natsuki Hanae/Zach Aguilar) in the "Demon Slayer" Swordsmith Village arc, it'll be up to the three of them if they're going to discover what Upper Moon One is up to and why he bears such a striking resemblance to Tanjiro himself.
