Kimetsu no Yaiba, popularly known as Demon Slayer, made some advancements regarding the upcoming season of the anime last month. The latest news is that the first promotional reel of Season 4, the Hashira Training arc, will be released next month. This news was confirmed by the official Japanese X (Formerly Twitter) account. The X account also asked audiences to “please wait for further details,” leaving fans anticipating further news.
However, just prior to the release of any updates about the upcoming season, the subreddit of Demon Slayer has posted images of what the Hashira would look like reimagined as Upper Moon Demons. This includes all the Hashira, even Rengoku, who unfortunately couldn’t continue his journey beyond the Mugen Train Arc.
Rengoku’s Fan Art as an Upper Moon Demon
Rengoku was a very engaging character, and fans grew to love him as the story in the Mugen Train Arc progressed. The Flame Hashira proved himself to be a force to reckon with as his battle with Akaza was unveiled.
His death was impactful and heavy on the fans and our protagonists since Rengoku almost started to lead Tanjiro, Zenitsu, and Inosuke as their brother figure in the series. Even in the last moment of his dear life, he went down with a smile.
The subreddit of Demon Slayer bought back the Flame Hashira in his new form as one of the Upper Moon, and it looks fantastic. The post also features all the other Hashira reimagined as Upper Moon Demons, like Shinobu, Giyu, and Tengen.
When will Demon Slayer Season 4 Hashira Training Arc release?
Demon Slayer’s fourth season was confirmed to be in production starting June 18, 2023. A trailer was released, which featured promotional images of Hashira, who’ll be a part of the upcoming season.
Several fan-beloved characters were seen in the trailer, including the Water Hashira Giyu Tomioka and Butterfly Hashira Shinobu Kocho, Sound Hashira Tengen Uzui, Love Hashira Mitsuri Kanroji, and Mist Hashira Muichiro Tokito. We also saw some new characters getting more screen time, such as Snake Hashira Obanai Iguro, Wind Hashira Sanemi Shinazugawa, and Stone Hashira Gyomei Himejima.
The official website of Demon Slayer confirmed the cast of the upcoming season. The story will mainly focus on the protagonist, Tanjiro, and his friends, Zenitsu and Inosuke.
