How fans around the world can watch Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 2, and which platforms will simultaneously air the hit animated series?
Today, Sunday 10 Octobere, arguably marks the most anticipated day on the entire fall anime mailing list. The reason? The return of Demon Slayer.
The hit series has become a modern classic in the anime industry, especially following the incredible box office sensation Mugen Train was last year.
Now, as millions of people around the world begin their countdown to Episode 1, we reveal how those same fans can watch Demon Slayer Season 2 online and legally for free.
Crunchyroll and Funimation
The second season of Demon Slayer will air as a simulcast anime title on the Crunchyroll and Funimation platforms for premium subscribers and free users.

The series will first be available to users with premium subscriptions, before launching a week after the original broadcast for free in selected territories.
Funimation offers a 14-day free trial of their content, with premium membership costs just £ 4.99 per month.
Crunchyroll also offers a two-week free trial period, but membership costs a little more at £ 7.99 per month.
Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Hulu
At the time of writing, Demon Slayer Season 2 will not air simultaneously on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, or Hulu.

Fortunately, the epic comeback of the animated series will most likely arrive on all platforms after the nationwide broadcast ends, with all three already airing the first season.
