Demon Slayer season 4 episode count: how many episodes are in the Hashira Training arc?

As is usually the case with new anime, we don't get the full lowdown on episode counts until a few episodes into the season. 

However, a quick glance at the manga suggests we're in line for a shorter season here, potentially only seven-to-eight episodes

By comparison, the first season consisted of 26 episodes. From there, we had shorter arcs such as Mugen Train (seven episodes), Entertainment District (11 episodes) and Swordsmith Village arc (11 episodes). So don't be surprised if Hashira Training follows that pattern and ends in late June.
