The official website for the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba franchise announced on Friday that the television anime's 22nd to 26th episodes will be recompiled into a special edition titled Hashira Gō Kaigi/Chōyashiki-hen (Hashira Meeting/Chōyashiki Arcs) that will air on Fuji TV on December 20. Like the previous special editions, this recompilation will add some new footage and a special ending credits roll.
This is the third recompilation of episodes from Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, following Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba: Bonds of Siblings and Natagumo Yama-hen. Bonds of Siblings opened in Japanese theaters in a limited screening run in March 2019, one month before the television anime's premiere. Bonds of Siblings also aired on Fuji TV in October, with Natagumo Yama-hen airing later that month.
Aniplex of America describes the television anime's story:
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.
