«“Prior to the premiere of this third season, a “World Tour of Screenings” will be held, which includes episodes 10 and 11 of the second season, and the first episode of the third. Starting on February 3, this tour will start in Japan and then go to more than 80 countries around the world. There will be stage greetings in seven of these countries, including Japan, which will feature Natsuki Hanae, the voice of Tanjiro Kamado, and other cast members.says an industry reporter».
«(Omission) “Not only the anime itself, but also the theme songs are being a topic of interest. “In the first season, LiSA sang the theme song “Gurenge”, and in the movie “Mugen Ressha-hen” she sang the theme song “Homura”.with the latter winning the Japan Record Awards Grand Prix in 2020. For the second season, Aimer sang the theme song “Zankyosanka”which also had an immense success and was sung at the great Kouhaku Uta Gassen event, being Aimer’s first participation”, commented a lyricist».
«What will happen with this third season? “The rock band ONE OK ROCKbased in the United States (signed to the US label Fueled by Ramen), is the one who will be in charge this time. Around the fall of last year, it seems the offer was made to the band. Speaking of ONE OK ROCK, I still remember that at “SUMMER SONIC 2022” where they were present in August, he was full of emotion even though you couldn’t shout because of the COVID-19 restrictions. It seems that the production company has some kind of plan with this collaboration“, commented a source from the music industry».
«What does this mean? “LiSA and Aimer, who have sung the theme songs in the past, have performed abroad, but at Asian tours and anime-related events. ONE OK ROCK, meanwhile, is also popular in Europe and elsewhere, and their North American tour last fall sold out. The group is all “rock” and has a different type of following than the two previous artists. It is evident that “Kimetsu no Yaiba” is popular all over the world, and it is a major engine in boosting the popularity of any artist who participates.“, commented the same source».
«“When I contacted the people at Fuji TV about ONE OK ROCK’s involvement in this sequel, they simply told me that they would not give any details about projects in production. So, in essence, they didn’t deny it.“concluded the source».
