What To Expect in Demon Slayer Season 4

The plot of Demon Slayer Season 4 will center on the Hashira Training Arc, which is based on manga chapters 128–136. That would imply that either Demon Slayer’s fourth season will consist of just four or five episodes or that the season will cover a larger plot than this single, short arc.

The storyline of the Hashira training arc centers on Tanjiro’s rigorous training under prominent Hashiras, including the Stone Hashira, Himejima, to fulfill his dream of becoming a Hashira in the Demon Slayer Corps. In comparison to the original Hashira meeting scene, this will provide a lovely emphasis on these characters and help fans better understand their personalities.
