Demon Slayer Season 2 already completed its run in Japan, with the Entertainment District Arc finale broadcasting on Feb. 13. The anime’s latest chapter was met with rave reviews, with many fans calling recent episodes the best yet.

And the Entertainment District Arc certainly does make a compelling follow-up to the Mugen Train storyline. It sees Tanjiro and his friends embarking on another mission — this time, with the Sound Hashira, Tengen Uzui.

The Japanese subtitled episodes of the Entertainment District Arc arrived on Crunchyroll and Funimation weekly, just hours after their debut in Japan. The English dub for Demon Slayer Season 2 has taken a bit longer to get a release date. But the English installments of the Mugen Train Arc came out recently, and the dubbed version of the Entertainment District Arc is arriving this February.

That’s right, the English dubbed episodes of Demon Slayer Season 2’s Entertainment District Arc will begin dropping this month.

According to Funimation, the first episode of the Entertainment District Arc will arrive on Feb. 20 at 8 a.m. PST. It will be available to stream on Crunchyroll and Funimation. And the two platforms will continue to release dubbed installments weekly through May 1.

The anime streamer confirmed that Zach Aguilar, Aleks Le, and Bryce Papenbrook will reprise their roles as Tanjiro, Zenitsu, and Inosuke. It also teased Ray Chase’s portrayal of Tengen Uzui, who will oversee the group as they venture to the Yoshiwara district. Abby Trott will return as Nezuko. There’s no word on who will voice the arc’s new characters just yet.

The arrival of the English dub will no doubt come as a pleasant surprise for fans who prefer that version of the anime. Of course, it also gives those who have already watched the Entertainment District Arc something to look forward to.

‘Demon Slayer’s dub release gives fans something to look forward to

The dub release date for Demon Slayer Season 2’s Entertainment District Arc gives fans something to look forward to while they wait for season 3. Although the Swordsmith Village Arc was greenlit, it will likely be a while before viewers see it animated. So, why not explore the previous storyline in a new language?

Although the subbed and dubbed takes on the anime’s second season aren’t likely to diverge much, it’s always interesting to see how voice performances differ from one version to the next. That’s why this announcement will appeal to fans who have seen the latest arc as much as viewers who haven’t.

If nothing else, it’s an excuse to stay in this world a little longer.

Dubbed episodes of Demon Slayer‘s Entertainment District Arc premiere on Crunchyroll and Funimation on Feb. 20.
