The announcement simply states that the anime adaptation will continue by adapting the Hashira Training part from the manga. The announcement is accompanied by character art of the year Hashira, especially those who haven’t had much screen time so far.
Demon Slayer Story Part 4
Demon Slayer season 4 will adapt the Hashira Training section of the manga, in which Tanjiro receives the training necessary to become a Hashira, as the title suggests. Tanjiro will be training with the strongest Hashira, including those who haven’t appeared much so far, such as Stone Hashira Gyomei Himejima. This will give these characters an interesting twist, giving fans a better sense of their personalities compared to Hashira’s original meeting scene.
However, the Hashira Training section is only 9 chapters long, which is quite short. For comparison, the 11-episode season of Swordsmith Village is 27 chapters long in the manga, which means that each volume adapts about 2 chapters.

Tanjiro will not only train with Hashira, who has lost focus; Fan favorites like Mitsuri Kanroji and Muichiro Tokito from season 3 and Tengen Uzui from season 2 will also return to aid Tanjiro’s training. The story will also catch up with Zenitsu and Inosuke, who have been separated from Tanjiro and sent on other missions, thus making them absent from the Blacksmith’s Village section. Genya will also be here and has some issues to deal with with his brother, Sanemi.
