Demon Slayer Season 2 Episode 1 Review

Demon Slayer Mugen Train Arc Episode 1 Review - A Great Prologue

Demon Slayer’s Mugen Train film was universally loved by fans and critics alike, and the Demon Slayer anime is attempting to tackle that story again with a retelling before the premiere of Season 2. The first episode of the Demon Slayer Mugen Train Arc is interesting, however, as it represents an entirely new addition to the story, not even featured in the original manga. 

“Flame Hashira Kyojuro Rengoku” takes place shortly before the events of Mugen Train, and serves as a prologue of sorts to the movie, showing how Rengoku found out about the train itself.

As a blazing orange sun dawns Rengoku is sitting in a noodle shop, and it’s here that Demon Slayer’s unparalleled animation is once again put on display. Even something so simple as the shop owner making noodles and pouring broth is given such attention and care. While the episode is a bit light on action, the fight scenes present still sport the same gorgeous animation given to Mugen Train. If anything, this premiere should help assuage any fear that animation quality might dip, as many second seasons do. Ufotable still nails the presentation, striking an incredible balance with the show’s soundtrack, animation, voice acting, etc.

Rengoku is the star of the show, and if there’s anything to show why he’s a fan-favorite character it’s this episode. The Flame Hashira is full of personality and vigor, and this premiere does a phenomenal job of fleshing out his character and personality, providing a bit of context into what he faced before Mugen Train. Most of the narrative revolves around Rengoku helping a grandmother and her daughter that sell bento boxes, and there’s even a nice little surprise related to Rengoku’s family. The episode, as a whole, feels like an echo of Mugen Train and makes the events of the film hold even more emotional weight now. 

It’s interesting to see the Demon Slayer anime finally bring some original content to the story, and it gives me hope that it’s something we might see more of moving forward. Mugen Train was an almost one-to-one adaption of the manga, and after this premiere, I’m very interested to find out what the extra and extended scenes bring. 

If there’s any criticism I could weigh against “Flame Hashira Kyojuro Rengoku,” it’s that the event in the middle crawls a little bit. Still, it feels like the perfect addition to Mugen Train that expertly juggles the same tone as the film and provides some much-needed extra screen time for one of the series’ most compelling characters.

Bungo Stray Dogs: Is Season 4 Really Coming?

Bungou Stray Dogs Season 4: The Things You Should Know About It - Inspired  Traveler

“Bungo Stray Dogs” was entered the HBO Max’s streaming library on July 2020. This series, along with “Hunter X Hunter” and “Fullmetal Alchemist”, solidified the existing selection of anime available for streaming across the services.

Atsushi Nakajima is the main character of “Bungo Stray Dogs” who unexpectedly turns into a white tiger when exposed to moonlight like a strange werewolf. A detective named Osamu Dazai recruited Atsushi from an organization called an armed detective agency. Almost everyone in the agency has the ability to use magic with its unique abilities. Magic is out of the reach of non-magical humans and it is used to solve crimes of a supernatural nature. 

Currently, HBO Max has released three seasons of “Bungo Stray Dogs,” including the entire series so far. It has not yet been officially announced if the fourth season is underway, but there are some signs that it may be released.

Release Date for Bungo Stray Dogs 4 

There is no official word for Bungo Stray Dogs season 4 production yet, but the TV show is based on a manga series published in the monthly Young Ace magazine (via the Bungo Stray Dogs Wiki). As a result, not only can additional material be adapted to the new volume, but new material will be released continuously every month. 

The third season of “Bungo Stray Dogs” ends with a beat based on chapter 53 of the original story. The total number of chapters in “Bungo Stray Dogs” is in the 90s (via Bungo Stray Dogs Wiki). Considering that Season 1 through 3 has an average of 17-18 chapters of material per chapter, there is already enough storyline for Season 4 if the anime adaptation continues at the same speed. 

Fand of the Bungo Stray Dogs subreddit have speculated that a new season is unlikely to begin until 2022, but the Season 4 announcements could arrive later this year.

Expected cast for Bungo Stray Dogs Season 4 

Yuto Uemura is in charge of voicing Atsushi Nakajima, the main character of the series. Uemura is an experienced anime voice actor who has earned credits in many other popular series (via IMDb). He voices Tamaki Amajiki from  “My Hero Academia”, and in “Haikyu!”, he plays Motoya Komori, a player from Inarizaki and Kageyama’s friend at the Japan Youth Camp. 

Mamoru Miyano is the voice of Osamu Dazai. His most notable past credits include the voice of Light Yagami, the protagonist of “Death Note”, and Atsumu Miya, the twin brother of “Haikyu!”. 

Miyano is perhaps best known as the voiceof “Persona 5” hero Ryuji Sakamoto (via IMDb) from a video game. 

The voice actors of “Bungo Stray Dogs” ended with Kensho Ono as villain Ryunosuke Akugawa, Yoshimasa Hosoya as detective Doppo Kunikida, Hiroshi Kamiya as detective Rango Edogawa and Yu Shimamura as detective Prince Yu Yoshino. Toshiyuki Toyonaga is detective Junichiro Tanizaki and Kisho Taniyama as Chuya Nakahara of the mobster. 

Without confirmation of a fourth season of “Bungo Stray Dogs”, it’s impossible to know exactly who will return to reprise their roles. That said, with the focus of the story unfolding on the series, we can expect most, if not all, of the main voice performers to return for a series update.
