Viz Media is licensing the three Demon Slayer light novels this fall. The Flower of Happiness, One-Winged Butterfly, and Signs From the Wind are getting official English translation, allowing fans of the original series to enjoy the Demon Slayer universe once again. The light novels were originally published in Jump J Books. Aya Yajima wrote all 3 and each one featured illustrations by Koyoharu Gotouge.

The second light novel from the Demon Slayer universe has 6 chapters and was also written by Aya Yajima, with Koyoharu Gotouge’s illustrations. Two out of 6 chapters focus on Shinobu. Tengen Uzui, Genya, and Giyu also make appearances, along with Tanjiro and Zenitsu. The Japanese title for the work is Katahane no Chou.
