After The Hashira Training Arc, What’s Next For Demon Slayer

As the first episode of the 4th season of Koyoharu Gotouge’s Demon Slayer began, it showcased how demon activity ceased after the events of the third season. However, a nighttime mission featuring Obanai and Sanemi showcases how some demons continue to terrorize the population.

As the two Hashiras continued their mission, they encountered a pack of demons in a ruined castle. The saga hints to its fans about the Infinity Castle Arc, that is the Demon Slayer Corps conducting a raid at Demon King Muzan’s secret hideout.

Meanwhile, Shinobu is trying her level best to figure out how Nezuko overcame the demons’ weakness against sunlight. The Hashira learn about what the Demon Slayer mark is, which is accounted for by only three people, that is, Tanjiro, Tokito, and Kanjori.

The series hints to its fans that this season is going to be a relaxing one because the real massacre is going to take place in The Infinity Castle Arc, and each Hashira must bring their A-game to win the long-standing battle against the Demon King.

Why Does The Hashira Training Arc Feel Like a Calm Before The Storm

The Infinity Castle Arc in Demon Slayer is going to be one of the best and most entertaining arcs in the series, which is divided into two sub-arcs. The Demon Slayer Corps have finally decided to take care of Muzan Kibutsui. The first arc showcases some of the most entertaining battles between the Hashiras and the Upper Moons.

Naturally, some of the most hated demons meet their end, but at the same time have their tragic backstories revealed, providing some much-needed closure. The upcoming saga will feature a ton of mesmerizing fights such as Obanai and Mitsuri versus Nakime, Tanjiro and Giyu versus Akaza, Shinobu versus Doma, and many more.

But the key highlight of the fight would be how Kokushibo, the Upper Moon 1, will finally enter the battle against Sanemi, Muichiro, Genya, and Gyomei. However, the series’ most iconic battle would feature the most casualties because out of the 7 Hashiras, only two returned.

The battle at the Infinity Castle was indeed the most devastating as a lot of fan-favorite characters met their end during the great battle. However, Giyu persevered as he lost an arm and got his sword broken, but he kept his promise of protecting Tanjiro until the very end.

He even stopped him from becoming a victim of the Demon Slayer Mark, which cursed him to die by his 25th birthday. Another survivor of the great battle was Sanemi. Though he barely managed to survive by the grace of his father, during the arc, he took on Kokushibo with Genya, Gyomei, and Muichiro.

While he landed the finishing blow on the Upper Moon 1, in the process, he took some serious injuries that forced him to pass out during the fight against Muzan. He faced the choice of going to Heaven or Hell with his mother, but his father’s spirit visited him and forced him back to life.

The 5 Fallen Hashiras died peacefully in their last moments, leaving fans in tears as they drew their last breath.

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba Hashira Training Arc can be streamed on Netflix.
