Where can I watch Demon Slayer for Free?

You can watch Demon Slayer Season 1 Free on Crunchyroll and VRV. However, the Mugen Train arc and the Entertainment District Arc are under the premium section. Demon Slayer currently has two seasons (Demon Slayer, Demon Slayer Season 2 Part 1 Mugen Train Arc, and Demon Slayer Season 2 Part 2 Entertainment District Arc). Many sites have made the Mugen Train Arc and the Entertainment District Arc in two different seasons. However, it’s not correct.

According to Wikipedia, Demon Slayer currently has only two seasons, with the 2nd still going on, and the Entertainment District arc is the part of Season 2. Presently, all top legal platforms like Funimation, Crunchyroll, Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and VRV have the license to play Demon Slayer Season 1&2 along with the Mugen Train movie.

How to watch Demon Slayer for Free?

There is still a way to watch the Demon Slayer series on the legal platforms for free. Only Season 1 is available under the ad-support format. But the Mugen Train movie and Season 2 are offered under the premium section. So how do we watch them?

First, let’s calculate;

Demon Slayer has 2 seasons with 39 episodes (excluding OVAs, movies), and each episode is approximately 20 minutes long (excluding themes). Therefore, the total duration is 39*20= 780 minutes, approximately 13 hours. It means if you watch Demon Slayer only for 2 hours, then you will catch the latest episodes in 7 days. Also, you can 1-2 days extra for the Mugen Train movies and OVAs.

Presently Demon Slayer Entertainment District Arc is ongoing; therefore, I advise you first to let it complete, then take the free trial so that you don’t have to wait for the next episode weekly. And if you already have a premium account, then you can enjoy Demon Slayer every week.

Also, it will take a month or two for Funimation to translate the Japanese version of Season 2. So can purchase the free trial in mid-February or March to get the Season 2 English dub.

All you need is a credit card to register along with your valid email id to register and enjoy. Also, for Netflix, you need a VPN to change your geo-location to either India or Japan. Netflix US only has the license for Demon Season 1; therefore, you have to access these countries, “India, Japan, Philippines, Thailand, Hongkong, Pakistan, Taiwan, Singapore, and Bangladesh,” to enjoy all episodes of Kimetsu no Yaiba.


Where can I watch Demon Slayer Season 2 for free?

Presently, Demon Slayer Season 2 is only available in original Japanese audio, and you can watch it for free on Funimation, Crunchyroll, Hulu, VRV, and Netflix under the 14- or 30-days free trial. Follow the steps mentioned above, and you’ll enjoy all episodes of Kimetsu no Yaiba.

Where can I watch Demon Slayer Season 2 dub?

Currently, the English dub version of Demon Slayer Season 2 is not officially translated by Funimation. It will take a month or two, after the complete release of Entertainment District Arc, by Funimation to translate it. Hence, it deviates; you’ll have to wait to watch Demon Slayer Season 2 dub.

How to watch Demon Slayer in order?

Demon Slayer follows the common Release and Chronological order. Therefore, it will not be a trouble to understand the correct watch order of the Demon Slayer series. So, let’s see how to watch Demon Slayer in precise order.

  • Demon Slayer Season 1 (1-26 Episodes)
  • Demon Slayer 2021 Special (1-6 Episodes) | Optional
  • Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Movie: Mugen Train
  • Demon Slayer Mugen Train Arc (1-7 Episodes)
  • Demon Slayer Entertainment District Arc (1-6…. Episodes) | On-going

This is the correct way to watch Demon Slayer in 2022. Also, you can ignore “Demon Slayer 2021 Special” as it is available on Funimation.

Is Demon Slayer worth watching?

Yes, Demon Slayer is one of the best anime series with incredible animation and emotional plot. The anime has only unveiled the beginning of the plot. Later on, the introduction and the history of the upper moons will reveal the reasons and oppression of why they became demons. And it will change your perspective towards the series.

Also, the first three upper moons and their techniques will definitely blow your mind. In contrast, each Upper Moon (above 4) is powerful enough to down any Hashira in a one-on-one fight. The real fight will begin after the Entertainment Arc.

In my opinion, Demon Slayer is a good anime. If you compare it with the Big Three, AOT, or DBZ, then maybe it will not stand to your expectations. But if you keep your excitement a little low till the final battle, you’ll definitely enjoy it.
