The 2021 Japanese anime (animated) TV show Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba (Season 2).

This is how MyAnimeList describes this anime TV show:
The devastation of the Mugen Train incident still weighs heavily on the members of the Demon Slayer Corps. Despite being given time to recover, life must go on, as the wicked never sleep: a vicious demon is terrorizing the alluring women of the Yoshiwara Entertainment District. The Sound Pillar, Tengen Uzui, and his three wives are on the case. However, when he soon loses contact with his spouses, Tengen fears the worst and enlists the help of Tanjirou Kamado, Zenitsu Agatsuma, and Inosuke Hashibira to infiltrate the district’s most prominent houses and locate the depraved Upper Rank demon.

As some of you may know, I hated Demon Slayer (Season 1), it disappointed & annoyed me greatly; so much so that I did not look forward to this season.
Fortunately & to my surprise, Demon Slayer (Season 2), is much better than season 1, not only did I not hate this season, I actually liked it.
This is almost unheard of for a season 2 to not only be better than a season 1, but to be this much better than a season 1.
Demon Slayer is now a watchable anime for me.
The fight scenes are beautifully animated & amazing & emotional at times, and are some of the best parts of this show.
The other best part of this show is some of the emotional moments for the heroes and the villains.
The animators of this season deserve a raise.
I would rate this season a 3.5 – 4 out of 5.
