The training of the pillars, or hashiras, will follow a certain logic: the “normal” Slayers will have to compete in groups with the hashiras. The goal for the pillars is to face groups of fighters, and for the Slayers to learn to team up while competing against powerful warriors. Finally, this training is an opportunity to learn the capabilities of each ally.

For the occasion, Tanjiro will throw himself headlong into inhuman exercises, alongside Himejima, an uncompromising pillar who will push the young man to his limits.

Fans can rest assured: no, season 4 of Demon Slayer will not be a simple series of inspiring montages of endless training. Other intrigues will mingle with the story, but there is no question of spoiling them here.

For those who can’t wait, the arc adapts chapters 128 to 136 of Koyoharu Gotōge’s manga, which can be found in volumes 15 and 16 of Demon Slayer.

Demon Slayer Season 4 Trailer

Season 4 of Demon Slayer benefited from a video summarizing the previous chapters and announcing the release of previews. If the teaser offered many key visuals, it is not strictly speaking a trailer specific to the pillar training arc.

The final trailer should be released at the end of February, beginning of March, i.e. after the world tour screening of the compilation film Demon Slayer: Road to Pillar Training. The video will certainly be an opportunity to reveal an official release date for the anime.
