Now that the Demon Slayer: Hashira Training Arc has come to an end, let's take a moment to look back at the season! And we'd like to share some special illustrations provided by ufotable X (formerly Twitter) account for each episode. These might even make great wallpapers!

We've gathered all the new illustrations of the characters from the Hashira Training Arc, including pre and post-episode illustrations and special thank-you post illustrations, all in one place. The arc wrapped up with its final episode on June 30, 2024, concluding with the dramatic season finale "The Hashira Unite".

Each week since the first episode, ufotable released new illustrations of the Hashira and other characters to commemorate the ongoing series. Now, we're excited to introduce them all to you!

Episode 1 "To Defeat Muzan Kibutsuji"

The first episodes kicked off with a bang, which featured stunning pre and post-provision illustrations. The battle between the Serpent Hashira, Obanai Iguro, and the Wind Hashira, Sanemi Shinazugawa, was especially intense.

Episode 2 "Water Hashira Giyu Tomioka's Pain"

In this episode, the story dives deeper into Water Hashira's past and story, as Tanjiro follows and tries to persuade Giyu Tomioka, which quickly became a one of the most wholesome episodes in this arc.

Episode 6 "The Strongest of the Demon Slayer Corps"

The sixth episode sees Tanjiro, along with Zenitsu Agatsuma and Gyomei Himejima, facing challenges like waterfall training at their training grounds. The announcement of Ryusei Nakao voicing the Kasugai Crow added an extra layer of excitement to this episode.

Episode 7 "Stone Hashira Gyomei Himejima"
