Demon Slayer season 2, episode 11 isn't just ending one of the series' greatest battles. It also the Demon Slayer season 2 finale. So, yeah, this is it. And all the more reason to commit the Demon Slayer season 2, episode 11 release date to memory. On the anime's current trajectory, there are bound to be spoilers and shock moments galore dropping onto your timelines on Sunday. 

Alongside that crucial info, we'll also have the air time in the US and UK for the Entertainment District arc's final episode. Plus, if you haven't caught up yet, there's also a Demon Slayer 2 recap which brings together all of Tanjiro and company's post-Mugen Train adventures.

Demon Slayer season 2 episode 11 release date

The Demon Slayer season 2 episode 11 release date is February 13. No change on the time: it's airing at 8:00 AM Pacific/11:00 AM Eastern in the US. That's 4:00 pm GMT across the pond in the UK. For now, it's only available to Crunchyroll and Funimation subscribers. 

The naming conventions can be a little confusing. Depending on the platform, it'll either be listed as Demon Slayer season 2, episode 11 or Entertainment District episode 11. It's the 43rd overall episode of the show's run and 17th as part of the 'season 2' combined package of the Mugen Train and Entertainment District arcs.

The English dub is likely to come a little further down the line; the Mugen Train arc, however, is currently available to watch dubbed.

Demon Slayer season 2 release schedule: how many episodes are left?

Welp. This is it: the Demon Slayer season 2 finale airs this week.

A previously listed (H/T on the iQIYI streaming service that suggested the total episode count for Demon Slayer season 2 was 18 episodes proved correct. That works out at at seven episodes for the Mugen Train recaps and 11 for Entertainment District. 

No word yet on Demon Slayer season 3, though we'd expect some sort of announcement to come after this Sunday's episode.

Demon Slayer season 2 recap: the story so far

All caught up? I hope so – the Entertainment District arc goes big on spoilers for the Mugen Train movie. For more on that, check out our Demon Slayer movie ending explainer.

The Entertainment District arc premiere deals with the fallout of Rengoku’s death at the hands of the Upper Moon demon Akaza – and his subsequent humiliating retreat.

Akaza is reprimanded by the head of the demons, Muzan, before heading off to lick his wounds. Muzan is now blending in as an orphan who has been taken in by a loving family.

Tanjiro, meanwhile, recuperates from his injuries and heads to Rengoku’s home to deliver his final messages to both his father and his brother. While his brother is ashamed of Rengoku’s defeat, his brother is more willing to co-operate – and teaches Tanjiro about the origins of ‘Sun Breathing.’

After months of extra training, Tanjiro, Inosuke, and Zenitsu all accompany the Sound Hashira Uzui Tengen to the Entertainment District in search of demons to slay. 

Once they get there, however, Tanjiro, Inosuke, and Zenitsu are embroiled in Tengen's odd plan. His three (count 'em, three wives) have been planted in the district to help gather intel on any demons, but they haven't checked in for a period of time. The three fledgling Demon Slayer Corps members are then tasked with disguising as women to infiltrate the brothels. The final moments of the second episode see Inosuke seemingly inching closer to discovering the truth, and fate, of one of Tengen's wives.

The third episode, meanwhile, revolves around the interrogation of that wife, Makio, by Daki. Inosuke senses Daki's presence but the cloth demon (it's unclear if it and Daki are one and the same) manages to evade capture.

Zenitsu, now at the Kyoguku house, is investigating the death of its madam. We discover that she was killed by Daki. Zenitsu is then knocked out by Daki after poking around a little too much. The closing shot of the episode features the cloth demon about to grab Zenitsu.

The fourth episode of the current run moves a little more slowly, with Tengen telling Tanjiro and Inosuke to get out of the Entertainment District while they still can. Zenitsu is still missing, which leads Tanjiro to track down a mysterious scent, that of Daki. The episode closes with Daki attacking Tanjiro and the two of them preparing to do battle. 

Later in the season, Tanjiro fights Daki, while Inosuke finds the cloth demon hidden deep below the town. Inosuke helps rescue Tengen's wives; Tanjiro, meanwhile, overcomes his difficulties with Water Breathing so he can try and master the Hinokami Kagura ability. 

Nezuko, meanwhile, protects her brother and goes into an uncontrollable demon state, defeating Daki in the process. She is later subdued by Tanjiro. Tengen also arrives on the scene and is confronted by Daki's 'brother' Gyutaro, who is revealed to have been a symbiotic part of Daki and the season's Big Bad.

One of the series' best fight scenes kicks off with Gyutaro revealing he's poisoned Tengen. Daki heads off to fight Zenitsu and Inosuke, while Tanjiro stays with Tengen to fight the elder demon.

One of Tengen's wives, Hinatsuru, helps turn the tide with a kunai attack as Tanjiro and Tengen move in for the kill. It doesn't quite end the battle, with Gyutaro taking advantage and (in one of the show's biggest cliffhangers), stabs Inosuke and dismembers Tengen.

All is not lost, however. Despite Gyutaro breaking two of his fingers, Tanjiro leads a spirited fightback and covertly poisons the demon. Zenitsu recovers and occupies Daki, while Tengen shows off a new 'flashy' movie and Inosuke reveals he is able to adjust the positions of his internal organs (eww), thus avoiding a killing blow to his heart.

The penultimate episode ends with Gyutaro and Daki both simultaneously having their heads cut off. Tanjiro and company aren't clear yet, however, as an explosion from Gyutaro's body engulfs the area.

The first season is available on Crunchyroll, Funimation, Hulu, and Netflix in the US, and Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Netflix in the UK. Find out what else from the world of anime is coming in 2022 with our guides to the Stone Ocean return date and Attack on Titan season 4 release schedule.
