The watch order of the anime is straightforward. Each new season takes place after the other. It only gets confusing when you take into consideration the movies because they overlap.

The first seven episodes of Season 2 and The Mugen Train movie adapted the Mugen Train Arc. These events took place from chapters 54 to 69 of the manga.

The series’ second movie, To the Swordsmith Village, also overlaps with Season 2’s Entertainment District Arc

The Demon Slayer 2023 movie will recap the events from the Entertainment District Arc’s episodes 10 and 11 — “Never Give Up” and “No Matter How Many Lives” — followed by the first episode of Season 3’s Swordsmith Village Arc.

This means you should watch the seasons and the movies as follows:

Season 126Chapters 1 to 54
The Mugen Train movie1 hour and 57 minutesChapters 54 to 69
Season 218Chapters 55 to 97
To the Swordsmith Village movieTBDTBD
Season 3TBDTBD

If you’re a fan of the big screen and enjoy over-the-top action sequences, you’re going to want to watch the movies for their improved animation.

The first two seasons of the Demon Slayer anime and The Mugen Train movie are available on Netflix and Crunchyroll.

The To the Swordsmith Village movie will be released internationally from February to March, and Season 3 will air its hour-long first episode in April.
