Following the world tour’s kickoff, new info about the next Demon Slayer season was revealed. Specifically, the Demon Slayer: Swordsmith Village Arc opening and new voice cast members were announced.
The new info was announced in a recent live event featuring the show’s main voice actors.
While the event’s live stream was available only in Japan, the details were subsequently shared on the anime’s official website and Twitter account.
Demon Slayer Swordsmith Village Arc Opening Song
All three Demon Slayer openings became big hits among the anime community. For instance, many now consider LiSA’s Gurenge from the first season to be a modern anime song classic.
LiSA was also tapped to sing two songs for Mugen Train, namely Homura and Akeboshi. Following in her footsteps is Aimer, another popular singer who performed the Entertainment District arc’s song, Zankyosanka.
For the third season, the show’s staff tapped a popular Japanese band and singer.
The band is called MAN WITH A MISSION, which is known for performing Vinland Saga's second opening and the Golden Kamuy OP.
Joining the band is Milet, a Japanese singer who is known for performing ending themes for Ranking of Kings, Vinland Saga, and Fate/Grand Order: Babylonia.
As for the song, it’s titled Kizuna no Kiseki (or Bonds of Miracle in English).
A quick preview of the song was shared on Aniplex’s YouTube channel, though the song is yet to be released outside Japan.
Demon Slayer Upper Rank Demons Voice Actors
Along with the opening, the new voice cast members were announced. The first is Ryotaro Okiayu, who voices Kokushibo, the Upper Rank One of the Twelve Kizuki. Okiayu is also known for voicing Byakuya in Bleach.
Next is Toshio Furukawa, the voice of Piccolo in Dragon Ball and Portgas D. Ace in One Piece. For Demon Slayer, he voices Hantengu, the Upper Rank Four.
Also joining the cast is Mamoru Miyano as Doma aka Upper Rank Two. Miyano is a popular VA who voiced Light Yagami in Death Note and Osamu Dazai in Bungou Stray Dogs.
Rounding out the new cast members is Kousuke Toriumi, who voiced Kiba in Naruto and Guido in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind. He voices Upper Rank Five, Gyokko.
