On the p/DemonSlayerAnime subreddit, u/KnYchan2 Slowed down several frames from the climactic battle scene that closes Season 2 of Demon Slayer. “Did you notice how he coughs up blood during the fight?” they asked. As the fight gets more intense, you can actually see Tengen (Kasuyuki Konishi/Ray Chase) coughing up blood between breaths, even as he and Tanjiro (Natsuki Hanae/Zach Aguilar) keep attacking Gyutaro (Ryota Osaka).

As we mentioned above, the amazing quality of the animation is one of Demon Slayer’s most compelling features. However, even ardent fans may not be aware of the expense that goes into making high-end illustrations like these stand out the way they do. “Was that 80 thousand per episode?” asked u / That_guy43218. “Now I am very excited for the next season. I hope they increase the budget to 160 thousand per episode. The bathtub sequence will be covered by AF.”
We checked the user’s homework to be sure and can confirm that his estimate of around $80,000 per episode is correct (via Anime Galaxy). While the second season of Demon Slayer definitely garnered a huge amount of viewership, doubling the cost of each episode from their current rate might push things a bit. Additionally, it could also further delay the release of future seasons to fans within a reasonable amount of time.
u/dataxep was quick to point out that more money doesn’t necessarily mean better quality anyway. “People from Ufotable mentioned that there is nothing special in their budget,” they said. “Bigger budget doesn’t mean better visuals.” Ufotable is the talented studio behind the impressive production of Demon Slayer.
