Preliminary (6/8 eps)
I'm not gonna lie and say that this is the best thing ever and everyone hating on it is a complete moron. I can't deny this is going to be the weakest season of Demon Slayer. But it is 100% necessary. This season is pure set up for the one after, which, provided ufotable doesn't do a Mappa AOT with "final season part ____" or anything stupid like that, should be the final. And as someone who read the manga, will be worthy of hype people give it. And to get there, this season is necessary.

This review is taking into account that this is not a standalone anime so things are rated based on this fact.
Could have been merged into one episode and still I wouldn't have recommended others to watch it. Nothing happens in his season to advance the plot and I mean it when I say NOTHING. basically, this is a season to take it easy on the animators and also rain some dollar bills because who doesn't like them? we're reaching the end of the story so we gotta milk the heck out of this bad boy since making money at all costs is good money ...
