Animated News Roundup: Demon Slayer, Attack on Titan, Chainsaw Man | Games | Entertainment
Demon Slayer fans have a new release to look forward to that will fill the gap until Season 3. Earlier this year the highly anticipated new season of Demon Slayer was announced which will feature Swordsmith Village Arc. It is believed that Demon Slayer Season 3 will have a 2023 release date, so fans are eagerly awaiting the first episode of the new series.
Luckily, there’s a release that will help keep Demon Slayer fans busy in the meantime with the announcement of a special edition Blu-Ray box set of the TV series Mugen Train.
This upcoming box set will adapt the events of the hit movie Mugen Train – which is the biggest box office hit ever in Japan – into a TV series.
Announcing the box set, Demon Slayer’s US Twitter account posted, “Set your heart on fire with the extraordinary TV series Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Mugen Train Arc coming to Limited Edition and Standard Edition Blu-ray on September 27th! “
Another popular anime set to debut its next season in 2023 is Attack on Titan.
The story of Eren, Mikasa, and the Survey Corps is nearing completion, with the final season finale arc launching next year.
This will be the third part of the final season of Attack on Titan, which will finally conclude the story of Hajime Isayama’s hit anime.
And ahead of the release date for Attack on Titan Season 4 Part 3, AoT fans were treated to a few surprise announcements this week.
First, new artwork for Attack on Titan’s final season has been released, showing a young Eren, Mikasa, and Armin running towards a tree, with an adult even in the background.
The artwork was unveiled during the announcement of a new “special event” for the final season of Attack on Titan, which will take place in November.
The proceedings will begin with an orchestral concert at Tokyo’s Tachikawa Stage Garden on November 13 for the AoT event, while there will also be a panel of voice actors.
Given how close this event is to the launch of previous parts of Attack on Titan season 4, it might be possible that we’ll get a new trailer for the final arc around this time.
The first part of Attack on Titan season 4 launched towards the end of 2020 while the second part landed towards the beginning of 2022.
And finally, Chainsaw Man fans also have a date to mark in their diaries.
The Chainsaw Man anime is one of the most anticipated anime on the horizon and will be handled by studio Mappa in Season 4 of Attack on Titan.
The anime is due out at some point this year, but it’s been a while since we’ve had an update – with no release date announced and no new footage for quite some time.
That could change everything next month with Chainsaw Man appearing at Anime Expo.
Crunchyroll and Mappa announced the Chainsaw Man panel during the huge 4th of July event, so it’s possible we could see a new trailer and even find out the release date at that time.
