This is due to the film’s inclusion of the final two episodes of Demon Slayer season 2, the Entertainment District arc, as well as an extended cut of the first episode of season 3, the Swordsmith Village arc. Fans have expressed dissatisfaction with the series’ repetition of previously seen scenes.
Episodes 10 and 11 of Demon Slayer season 2 are included in the new Demon Slayer film. Fans were not pleased with the repetition of the same scenes, and some critics even accused the film of plagiarism.
Fans have not taken the repetition of the same scenes positively, with some critics even accusing the movie of being a ploy to extract more money from fans.
Furthermore, the extended cut of Demon Slayer season 3 featured in the film will be added to the main series, giving fans another chance to see it. Because of these factors, the new Demon Slayer film was a letdown.
The same thing occurred prior to Demon Slayer Season 2. Mugen Train was a box office success. The film was later included in Season 2 by spreading it out over seven episodes. Following that, the season adapted the Entertainment District arc from episode 11 to episode 18.

Despite the criticism, To the Swordsmith Village, the new Demon Slayer film, has its supporters. Some people have praised the film for its animation and action scenes, which they believe are worth the ticket price.
The demon slayer movie was great. As long as you know what to expect from this movie, then imo it’s definitely worth watching. The new content and especially the upper moon meeting was spectacular and the villains introduction was perfect. I’d rate the movie a 7.5 or 8/10 pic.twitter.com/mZAz99gRn3— derek (@S7NEMI) March 5, 2023
Others have also defended the new movie, saying that it helps bridge the gap between seasons 2 and 3 and gets people ready for the next story arc. Furthermore, the new Demon Slayer film has been a worldwide success. Its main goal was to promote the third season and remind fans how far they had come with Tanjiro and his friends.
Finally, the new film has sparked a heated debate within the fandom, and its reception is likely to remain a hot topic in the coming weeks until the release of Demon Slayer season 3.
The third season of the show will premiere on April 9, 2023. Season 3 of Demon Slayer will adapt the manga’s Swordsmith Village Arc. Fans are already anticipating the animated adaptation of Koyoharu Gotouge’s story.
