Demon Slayer has a lot of fan favourites, which makes sense for such a popular series. While the main cast of Tanjiro, Zenitsu, and Inosuke receive the majority of the love, some Hashira also receives it. Shinobu Kocho is one of these Hashiras, beloved by fans for her cheerful demeanour and deadly poison skills. While she may not be as physically intimidating as the other Demon Slayer Hashiras, she certainly possesses the necessary skills to hold the title.
Unfortunately, many fans have questioned her status at the end of Demon Slayer because of her love.
How Shinobu Die?
Shinobu Kocho confronts her sister’s killer, Doma, during Demon Slayer’s penultimate arc, the Infinity Castle arc. Doma is the Twelve Kizuki’s Upper Moon Rank Two demon, second only to Kokushibo and Muzan themselves.
Shinobu appears to be consuming Doma’s female followers as the battle begins. Shinobu tries to save one of the followers, but it’s too late, as she passes away in her arms. After confronting Doma about her sister and having Doma mock her death, Shinobu begins to show her rage.
Shinobu then stabs Doma in the left eye before avoiding a Demon attack. Doma realizes Shinobu is the poison specialist he’s heard about after the two exchange actions and words. Shinobu is displeased. Doma prepared himself for her poison after her battle with Rui’s sister, and as a result, Doma is able to make her poison non-lethal.
Shinobu’s poison is not only neutralized, but it also begins to heal Doma once it has been broken down sufficiently. Shinobu pins her hopes on injecting Doma with a large enough dose of poison that he won’t be able to break it down. Shinobu manages to hit him, but her ribs and collarbone are cut as well as a lung punctured in the process.
Shinobu summons all of his strength for one last attack, successfully stabbing Doma in the neck with a poison strike. As Doma appears to be dying from the poison, Shinobu triumphantly relaxes. Doma, on the other hand, quickly recovers and bear hugs Hashira, absorbing her pain.
Shinobu eventually absorbed her into himself and killed her.
Demon Slayer Season 3 Story
Season three’s plot will be based on the original manga’s ninth arc, the Swordsmith Village arc, it has been confirmed. It’s worth noting that the Demon Slayer manga officially ended in 2020, giving anime fans a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn (roughly) what the future holds for Tanjiro and the gang.
After Tanjiro and Sound Hashira Tengen Uzui defeated the demon siblings Gyutaro and Daki in the Entertainment District arc, the Swordsmith Village arc begins.
Fortunately, Tanjiro’s demon-slaying sword was the only permanent casualty of this epic battle.
Tanjiro will travel to the Swordsmith Village in season three of Demon Slayer to have his blade repaired by Hotaru Haganezuka.
While you’re there, Tanjiro and his companions will, of course, be attacked by a swarm of demons while they’re there (including an Upper-Rank Six that splits themselves across multiple bodies). Fortunately, Mist Hashira, and Muichiro Tokito, step in to take care of the situation.
Demon Slayer Season 3 Trailer
Crunchyroll and Ufotable released their first season three teaser trailer in April 2022. (sort of).
Although calling it a trailer might be a stretch given that it essentially serves as a recap of the series thus far, taking you through highlights from seasons one and two, it does serve as a trailer.
The inclusion of some key (old) footage of the Mist and Love Hashiras, who will play a key role in the third season, is the most notable element.
Based on previous seasons, we can expect a full trailer in June 2023 if we assume a late 2023 premiere for Demon Slayer season 3. Keep an eye on it.
Demon Slayer Season 3 Release Date
The bad news first. Between the first and second seasons of Demon Slayer, there was a two-and-a-half-year gap, and we expect the same for the third season.
While a release date for Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Swordsmith Village arc has yet to be announced, we expect the third season to arrive in the fall of 2023.
In February 2022, however, the official Demon Slayer account tweeted the first teaser image for the third season, confirming that it was officially in production.

Demon Slayer season 2 is available to watch on Funimation, Hulu, and Crunchyroll. Season 2 of Demon Slayer is currently streaming on Crunchyroll and Funimation, among other anime streaming services. Both sites are free to use, but they do have premium subscription services that are ad-free.
