What will the Kimetsu no Yaiba Entertainment District Arc be like?

It will be aired in 2021! BUT wait! What was the story like......? To those who want to recap the story, here is the article for you to read for 5 min! Let's check Kimetsu no Yaiba again before the anime is aired!
What volumes cover the Entertainment District Arc in the comic books?
The Entertainment District Arc is the story in volumes 8 to 11 in the comic books!
The Entertainment District Arc is the direct sequel to the movie which was released in October 2020, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train!
It should be ok to watch the Entertainment District Arc right after watching the final episode of the anime first season because there are no drastic changes in the story and characters. (There are some minor changes like characters’ mental growth, or some characters’ exit.) However, if possible, I want you to check the anime’s first season, the movie, and/or comics before this second season starts airing!
How does the story of the Entertainment District Arc begin?
Sound Hashira, Uzui Tengen started a new task.
It happened 4 months after the end of the Mugen train incident.
All 3 wives of Sound Hashira, Uzui Tengen disappeared during their mission. Tengen was certain that there were demons at the places where the 3 wives were working. So, he tried to recruit female Demon Slayer Corps to work with him, but they were not willing to.
Tengen tried to take Aoi who was not good at battling. Kamado Tanjiro fiercely opposed Tengen. Tengen told Tanjiro to work for him by dressing up as a woman if he was against his idea of using female Demon Slayer Corps. Tanjiro, Inosuke, and Zenitsu ended up dressing up as women to help him.
The location where the demons lurk and Tengen's 3 wives vanished ...... that was Yoshiwara. Yoshiwara was Japan's largest flashy entertainment district where love and greed swirled.
Yoshiwara Yukaku was an entertainment district that really existed during the Edo period in Japan. It was an officially registered large entertainment district by the Edo Shogunate and thousands of women were living in the district during the peak period!
Who is the main character of the Entertainment District Arc?
Sound Hashira, Uzui Tengen
Of course, he is!! The main character of the Entertainment District Arc is definitely, Sound Hashira, Uzui Tengen-San!
He appeared briefly in the last half of the anime’s first season, but he will play an active role in this Entertainment District Arc! He is a young man who is one of the executive members of the Demon Slayer Corps. He likes to say “flashy” and likes to act and battle flamboyantly!
In this episode, of course, there will be a “demon”......, oh no! I cannot spoil the story! I will not tell you what kind of demon will appear! I am sorry!!
If you do not know about the demon in this story, please do not look for it until you actually watch the anime! I want you to enjoy predicting what it will be like!
Tanjiro, Inosuke and Zenitsu, the 3 demon slayers introduced earlier, will be added to the task force for hunting the demon in the Entertainment District! They all had to dress up like women to sneak in this women’s district!
Since Tanjiro is known as a super honest person (he can’t tell a lie), it may be difficult to sneak into the district. Do you think these 3 slayers can find Tengen’s vanished wives in the district......!?
