On October 5, the second coloring book collection for the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba series was released, giving fans the chance to color in more panels from the manga by Koyoharu Gotouge. On the day of release of the new set of Orange and Indigo books, the official Twitter account for Demon Slayer announced that the now four “Paint Books” have over 1.43 million copies in print – that’s a lot of people coloring in Nezuko!

The original set, which is subtitled with the colors of Deep Red and Blue, was released on March 4, 2021, likely making the coloring in books one of the most popular of the year – especially as the next two TV anime arcs start airing on Japanese TV later this week.
The two upcoming arcs, the Mugen Train arc and Entertainment District arc, will be streaming on Crunchyroll this anime season.
