Plot

The anime follows the manga series plotline, after 'Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train' movie and will adapt the ‘Entertainment District’ arc of the manga. Here, Tanjiro and the gang interact personally with another Hashira, Tengen Uzui, the Sound Hashira. Tengen is on a mission to rescue his three wives that have gone missing in the Yoshiwara Red Light district and to find out what has happened to them; he needs to infiltrate and investigate the situation. He ropes in the three boys, Tanjiro, Zentisu and Inosuke to do the same. He sends them to three different brothels -- the Ogimoto House, Kyogoku House, and Tokito House, where they are disguised as women to extract information.

However, when Zentisu goes missing, Tengen soon realizes that there might be a larger danger looming at hand. The group soon faces off against Muzan's Upper Moon Six demons -- Gyutaro and his sister, Daki.
