The next episode of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba continues the confrontation between Tanjiro and Kibutsuji. If you want to see whether the Demon Slayer will be slain or if Kibutsuji will go down you’ll want to know when the Demon Slayer episode 8 air date is. Fortunately, we’ve got the info you need on release dates and times on the next Demon Slayer episode in the UK and US. We’ll also give you the info we have on when you can see Demon Slayer dubbed.
When is the Demon Slayer episode 8 air date?
Demon Slayer is being simulcast on Crunchyroll, and Funimation releases every Saturday at noon EDT. That means episode 8 will drop on May 25. There’s no sign of a break yet, so you can count on at least the next few episodes coming out on Saturday before we get a recap episode or a skipped week or two.
Crunchyroll and Funimation’s simulcast releases are keyed to Eastern Time, so episode 8 will be available in the UK at 5:00 pm BST. Once the clock strikes 5 pm, you can start hammering on F5 to refresh the page.
If the clock has passed the hour and you still don’t see Demon Slayer episode 8, don’t give up! You may just need to clear your cache and cookies and log back into Crunchyroll or Funimation.
When will the Demon Slayer dub release?
As of right now, there are no announced plans to dub Demon Slayer. Given how popular it is right now it’s highly doubtful it’ll get passed over for too long. However, given that it’s not an established series we’ll probably have to wait until after its run for the dub.
The sub for Demon Slayer is pretty good and gets the job done. Like most Crunchyroll and Funimation subs it’s a bit sterile and lacks the touches that fansubs have. However, those two services are the only two legal ways to watch it in the UK or US now, so you’ll have to wait if you want more audio or caption options.
