Demon Slayer: Japan ratings down

News website Mantan Web recently reported that ratings for the second season of “Demon Slayer” (jap.: “Kimetsu no Yaiba”) are down for the third consecutive season.

Demon Slayer: Ratings down nearly 4 percent

While at the beginning of the broadcast of the second season a rating of 10 percent was achieved on the Fuji TV channel in the Kanto region, which is the most populous metropolitan area in the world, only 6.4 percent were possible for the fourth episode.

The second episode already dropped to 8 percent, while only 7 percent could be measured for the third episode. As a possible cause, it is considered that the “Mugen Train Arc” does not offer much new material apart from the first episode, which did not already appear in the film.

The second season of “Demon Slayer” is simulcast in this country every Sunday on Crunchyroll with English subtitles. The film, “Demon Slayer: Mugen Train,” will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on December 16, 2021.
