A stage play adaptation of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Entertainment District Arc is set to run in Japan this November and December. It will be performed in Tokyo and Osaka.

Unlike the previous Demon Slayer stage plays, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Stage Play Part 4 Entertainment District Arc will feature Shougo Sakamoto instead of Ryouta Kobayashi as Tanjiro Kamado. Meanwhile, Ryoushirou Tsuji is playing the role of Uzui Tengen.

Kenichi Suemitsu is once again serving as director and scriptwriter. The returning cast includes:

Karen Takahashi as Nezuko Kamado
• Keisuke Ueda as Zenitsu Agatsuma
 Yuugo Satou as Inosuke Hashibira

The first two parts of the Demon Slayer stage play ran in 2020 and 2021 respectively. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Stage Play: Part 3 Mugen Dream Train debuted last year.

The Shueisha-published Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba manga by Koyoharu Gotouge ran from 2016 to 2020 with 23 tankoubon volumes. An Ufotable-produced anime adaptation premiered in 2019 and was followed by 2020’s Demon Slayer – Kimetsu No Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train, a TV broadcast version of Mugen Train, 2021’s Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Entertainment District Arc, the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba -To the Swordsmith Village- compilation movie, and this season’s Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Swordsmith Village Arc.

Crunchyroll describes the anime’s first season as:

It is the Taisho Period in Japan. Tanjiro, a kindhearted boy who sells charcoal for a living, finds his family slaughtered by a demon. To make matters worse, his younger sister Nezuko, the sole survivor, has been transformed into a demon herself. Though devastated by this grim reality, Tanjiro resolves to become a “demon slayer” so that he can turn his sister back into a human, and kill the demon that massacred his family.
