The Hero Chapter is the immediate sequel to the original Yuuki Yuuna and is perhaps the strongest season yet (I have not seen the Mankai chapter yet so that doesn't count in my reckoning). This season is largely story driven with the slice-of-life/comedy elements taking a back seat. The major plus in Hero Chapter is we get a more satisfactory ending that offers closure to the show. To get the most out this series I would recommend watching all the prequels though.

The episode starts of with a flashback of Daida’s childhood showing his relationship with Boijj and his parents.

Thoughts: With the second episode the new season really starts in earnest as we see Tanjirou, Zenitsu and Inosuke hit it off in the “entertainment district” aka the red light distract. The episode starts heavy in comedy so I imagine opinions will be mixed here. I know lots of people who watch Demon Slayer have said less than stellar things about the comedy skits this series dishes out so the first half could make for difficult viewing depending on your tastes...

The Washio Chapter is actually a prequel to the original Yuuki Yuuna season although if you want to get the most out of this franchise I would still recommend watching the original Yuuki Yuuna over this. I say that because the revelations mentioned in this Washio chapter will spoil a major twist in the first season. In terms of the target audience this will be great for people who like slice-of-life anime or magical girls and is suitable for veterans and newcomers alike. The ending is...

In this prequel I will be reviewing the first (second season depending on how you call seasons) in the Yuuki Yuuna franchise. If you are a fan of magical girls and drama then this could be worth a look as this series has got all the stuff to cater for such fans. Be warned though there are some dark moments particularly at the end which can be a tad depressive.
