The first episode will act as an epilogue to season 3 and a prologue to season 4. The one-hour-long episode will show the Swordsmith Village arc’s last episode and the Hashira Training’s first episode.

Even though it will be a recap for people who saw season 3 long ago, they are not happy with such a decision. The fans were fully dedicated to season 3. An hour-long episode is a great way to catch the audience’s attention, but it should consist of new happenings only. For this reason, the Demon Slayer fans took social media by storm and expressed their disappointment with such a decision.

Fans are excited for Demon Slayer season 4 but not for a recap of season 3. The Hashira Training arc is a small arc, so there will be a tendency to stretch it for the same amount of time in the season, with flashbacks and recaps. It has disappointed a lot of fans, and they raised their voices through social media posts. One X (formerly Twitter) user wrote, “They are milking it like aot bro.”

Another one agreed with him and wrote the same thing about how much season 4 will be milking the Hashira Training arc.

@JxckCFC wrote, “is it really just a season of the hasira training arc? it’s short enough if the manga so i don’t get how there gonna make it a season. It’s not the best arc and especially after swordsmith witch was also not the best is gonna drag the series down a lot.”

Demon Slayer is undoubtedly one of the most popular anime. The Hashira Training arc will be the last before the Demon Slayer Corps takes on the King of Demons. It will be a significant arc since Tanjiro, Inosuke, and Zenitsu will train to become stronger. While the hype and expectations are rising, the news about the recap could be a potential deal breaker. But Demon Slayer has never been disappointing, so seeing how well the story develops with this arc will be interesting.
