The sixth episode of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 2 has finally been dropped. Episode 6 also happens to be the penultimate episode of the anime's Mugen Train arc and that means the story is coming to an end next week. But what will happen when the current story arc concludes this month?

The Mugen Train arc was confirmed to be the first part of Demon Slayer Season 2 with the first episode being a completely new story that takes place before Rengoku Kyojuro boards the train. The story would then be spread out from the second to the seventh episode of the second season. But what happens next?


How Does Demon Slayer's Mugen Train Arc End?

We already know how this story ends, thanks to the manga and Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie - Mugen Train. For those who haven't read the manga or watched the film, it concludes with the Demon Slayer Corps completing their mission. Although they manage to save all the passengers on the train, there was one major casualty that affected Tanjiro, Zenitsu, and Inosuke.

But there is barely any rest for the young warriors. Although they manage to recuperate in the manga, they are soon sent off on a new mission that will challenge them like never before.


What Happens After The Mugen Train Arc?

The next story arc is called the Entertainment District arc and it will follow the young Demon Slayers as they join Tengen Uzui at the Yoshiwara red-light district. But before that, Tanjiro sets off to pay his respects to Rengoku's family and learns about a lost technique similar to his own family's Hinokami Kagura.

For the anime, the Entertainment District arc will begin with Episode 8. The next story arc will also introduce new opening and closing themes. Moreover, this part of Demon Slayer Season 2 will be titled Demon Slayer: Yukaku-hen.


Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 2 Episode 7 is the final episode in the Mugen Train arc. The episode is titled Set Your Heart Ablaze ("Kokoro o Moyase") and will air on FujiTV on November 28, 2021, at 11:15 PM JST.
