Aside from an announcement, lucky Demon Slayer fans in Japan will also be treated to an appearance from the series’ voice cast, as well as a special screening.

What Is the Demon Slayer Anime Stage Event?

There are three events that will take place in the Machi Asobi anime event happening in Tokushima, Japan this weekend.

The first of the three is a stage event featuring Aniplex producer Yuma Takahashi, Tanjiro voice actor Natsuki Hanae, and Tengen Uzui voice actor Katsuyuki Konishi.

There, the three are expected to talk about their experience in the Entertainment District Arc.

Up next is an event that will reveal details about the Demon Slayer anime.

While there are no specific details yet, a new season or a release date for the upcoming season may be revealed given that the Swordsmith Village Arc was already confirmed a few months ago.

The third and final event is a Demon Slayer: Mugen Train screening that will take place after the first two. Specifically, the theatrical version of the movie will be screened.

When Is the Demon Slayer October 2022 Stage Event?

The Machi Asobi event is happening in Tokushima on October 15-16, 2022. All the Demon Slayer events will take place fairly early into Machi Asobi.

There’s no word yet on whether the upcoming Demon Slayer anime announcement will be streamed live.

Nonetheless, it’s a good bet that fans of the series should watch out on Saturday as it’s highly likely that the new info will also be shared on the anime’s official social media pages or website.

What we do know is that the anime will continue with the Swordsmith Village Arc. This was confirmed shortly after the end of the Entertainment District Arc (or Season 2 of the anime) early this year.
