If you need a quick recap on the events leading up to the new arc, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba follows the story of Tanjiro and his sister, Nezuko. Following their family's death by demonic hands, and with Nezuko transformed into a demon, Tanjiro is recruited by the Demon Slayer Corps. Kimetsu no Yaiba tracks our hero as he continues the fight in a deadly, centuries-long war.

The Entertainment District Arc picks up directly after the Mugen Train movie and the epic showdown between Flame Hashira Kyōjurō and Akaza. As the second half of the season picks up, expect Tanjiro to come across plenty of new monsters, and potentially come face to face with Daki.
