The second season of “Demon Slayer” is expected in the fall and anime fans are anxious to see what lies ahead. The wise bet is to keep tabs with Tanjiro although a recent teaser may have altered all that.

Instead, the focus has shifted to Giyu with the clip teasing a potential backstory on the character.

For those residing in Japan, a rerun on “Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba” season one is currently ongoing. But for those who were able to catch it, Fuji TV added some new footage to some episodes. Adding it all up, it raises expectations on a Giyu backstory.

Do take note that not much was shown on Giyu’s history. Rather, it was him as a child with his sister by his side.

Some may not understand this initially. But for those who are aware of the manga side of things, the sister of Giyu meets a tragic fate. This sparks the meeting of Giyu with Sakonji Urokodaki after a series of events, paving the way for him to join the Demon Slayer Corps.

By the time fans meet the fighter, he is known as the Water Hashira, and Tanjiro looks to Giyu with equal parts fear and respect.

For those who have followed “Demon Slayer,” the history of Giyu has yet to be covered. Some are curious about this and it is possible that it could be tackled in season 2.

Giyu was not the focus of the first season of “Demon Slayer,” same with the anime’s first movie. There is no telling if a backstory of the Water Pillar of the Demon Slayer Corps will happen.

For now, it would be best to take it as a grain of salt. The only thing sure is that “Demon Slayer” season 2 is coming this Fall.
