The beloved two characters from Demon Slayer will not appear in the third and final installment of the sword-swinging animated.
Two of the most well-known characters of Demon Slayer Kimetsu no Yaiba and Kimetsu no Yaiba, will not be appearing in the highly anticipated third season.
The upcoming installment of the cult anime series from Ufotable will be missing the characters of Inosuke Hashibira and Zenitsu Agatsuma, as reported by the Facebook group Daily Dose of Anime. This absence results from their absence in the ” Swordsmith Village Arc” in Koyoharu Gotouge’s manga original series. Demon Slayer’sSeason 3 will focus on this part of the original material, meaning it will be the show’s first season not to feature the pair.

The fans were introduced to both characters in the first season of the show starting with “Final Selection Arc” premiering Zenitsu and the “Tsuzumi Mansion Arc” offering Inosuke his first screen appearance. Zenitsu is a cowardly slayer with blonde hair and a robe of orange. While he’s a nuisance to the team, Zenitsu is still able to perform admirably using a sword even after the slayer has fallen asleep. Inosuke is the one who spends most of the time in the boar mask and is a wildcard, always seeking a fight. They soon created a trio with the main character, Tanjiro, and were involved in numerous fights throughout the two seasons as well as the film.
The Return of Season 1’s Genya Shinazugawa
However, Inosuke and Zenitsu won’t be appearing in Season 3 Genya Shinazugawa will return to the screen. Genya Shinazugawa was introduced in “Final Selection Arc” where he was involved in a battle with Tanjiro. He later briefly appeared in the “Rehabilitation Training Arc,” in which he was pushed over by the protagonist. Along with Mist Hashira MuichiroTokito, and Love Hashira Mitsurikanroji, the trio will have an important role in Season 3.
