A few days ago it was confirmed that “Kimetsu no Yaiba“was going to increase its availability in Netflixthat is, instead of only having the first season of the anime, the streaming platform was also prepared to incorporate the second season to its catalog. This was an important step forward precisely because this year it premieres the anime that adapts the arc of ‘The Training of the Pillars’, so in order not to fall too far behind in the broadcast, it was time to take action on the matter. Although It hasn’t been how I expected.
Netflix already has more Kimetsu no Yaiba anime at its disposal… but not much
Below I tell you everything you should keep in mind about the new content of “Kimetsu no Yaiba” on Netflix:
- To begin, if you want to find the anime already added to Netflix you can do so from this link, which will take you to the official file of Kimetsu no Yaiba. 😉
- Now you can find 2 content tabs: one with 26 episodes that represents the first season, and another with 7 episodes representing the second. Yes, only 7 in this case. 😶
- Personally I thought there were going to be 18 episodes that would be added to the Netflix catalog, for the following reason:
- Originally, the Infinity Train arc was adapted by an anime movie which had a brutal worldwide success.
- This film was released on October 16, 2020, while a year later, on October 10, 2021, it was released the same content but adapted to the episodic format. Indeed, that’s where those 7 new episodes now available on Netflix come from.
- The thing is, the Infinity Train episodic adaptation was actually made as a kind of prequel to the Entertainment District, with one content ending on November 28, 2021 and the next starting its broadcast on December 5 of the same year (a week later). As such, the episodic format of the Infinity Train and the Entertainment District arc aired in one go, combining a total of 18 episodes for broadcast.
- Despite how the anime originally aired, It seems that ultimately each arc of the Kimetsu no Yaiba anime is being treated as its own, individual license.. Hence, instead of adding Netflix the Infinite Train and the Entertainment District as a single second season, the content has ended up being divided into what will now be seasons 2 and 3 (again, always in accordance with Netflix). 🤔
Obviously I don’t want to go into funeral mode either because it’s clear that The more options there are to watch the “Kimetsu no Yaiba” anime, the better.. Of course, I think this implies that we will have to be quite patient for Netflix to expand its selection of content in terms of the Kamado story, because if this is the distribution they have in mind… they are going to end up having a zillion seasons. in his name.
