Demon Slayer Trailer Introduces The Sound Hashira’s Many Wives

Makio, Suma and Hinatsuru get the spotlight in the latest promo video for Demon Slayer's second season.

The three new characters are all married to the Entertainment District arc's stand-out character, the flamboyant Tengen Uzui, a skilled swordsman who serves as the Demon Slayer Corps.' Sound Hashira. All three are skilled fighters in their own right, wielding kunai tipped with wisteria, the demon-paralyzing poison. Strangely enough, the three possess personalities that are roughly equivalent to the series' central trio of newbie demon slayers, Tanjiro, Zenitsu, and Inosuke.

The kind and level-headed Hinatsuru is voiced by Atsumi Tanezaki, who previously starred in the romance anime My Little Monster. The cowardly Suma is portrayed by Nao Toyama, a voice actor and pop star who is best known for her roles in the romantic-comedy Nisekoi and the musical space opera Macross Delta. Finally, Shizuka Ishigami plays the role of the headstrong Makio. Ishigami previously voiced the young Moriarty in Moriarty the Patriot and was also part of the cast in Gleipnir and That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime.

Demon Slayer's second season recently began its adaptation of the well regarded Entertainment District arc, after spending the season's first seven episodes retelling the events of the Mugen Train arc. The new arc is set four months after Mugen Train's tragic finale and sees Tanjiro, Nezuko, Zenitsu and Inosuke traveling to the big city to assist the Sound Hashira and his wives with their latest mission.

The series also debuted a new opening title sequence, which is set to the song "Zankyou Sanka" and features a brief glimpse of the Sound Hashira's upcoming battle with the demon Gyutaro, who is a member of the feared Twelve Kizuki. The animation studio responsible for the show's production, Ufotable, also released new art of Uzui the series to celebrate the Entertainment District arc's premiere.

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba was created by Koyoharu Gotouge and originally published in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2016. The manga is the newest series to earn a place in the list of the top ten best-selling manga series of all time, with over 150 million copies around the globe. Tanjiro's story came to an end this past May when the manga published its final chapter, and despite ending within the first half of the year, the series was still overall the second best-selling manga in Japan of 2021 with 29.5 million copies sold, and was only just barely beaten out by Jujutsu Kaisen. The anime adaptation of the series is currently streaming on both Funimation and Crunchyroll, with both services simulcasting new episodes of the second season as they air in Japan.
