Nezuko in a basket lol

It looks like the show has a running gag of Tanjirou running into bloody or death scenes constantly now. I thought this episode captured the feeling of horror kinda well. The soundtrack made the scenes felt more thrilling too.

Tanjirou still has a lot to learn especially about fighting and surviving if you ask me.

Getting your head kicked off, apparently not a huge deal for demons. Being exposed to the tiniest bit of sunlight, though? RIP

Tanjirou saw again a tragic scene that it was relatable to him. Finally today we meet Sakonji, the man who's gonna train our boi to become a demon slayer. I'm expecting some good stuff for the next episodes.

Mc-kun is not as useless as i thought he wouldbe, and now he's an apprentice of this old dude, who seems to be some kind of a demon slayer trainer or something.

Also, i didn't thought we would get the "cute oni-imouto moments", like who ever said that you can't be a demon and cute at the same time lol.

The basket's the real best character of the season.

The story is really intriguing me so far, this show looks really promising in my opinion. The staff at ufotable are really giving my eyes a feast, I find myself admiring the scenery and realistic backgrounds almost every frame.

Great followup episode, this is just fantastic. I'm super tempted to read the manga now.

First of all, the art is just incredible. So beautiful. The animation is great and the fight sequences have some great direction. I loved the sequence where the candle light went out and that Oni attacked Tanjuro, so damn good.

"Nezuko, get in the basket" was hilarious. XD

Sakonji seems like a great character and I'm looking forward to seeing more of him.

Training arc already, let the hype begin!

And thus the training to become a Demon Slayer started. Training sessions are without a doubt among my favorite parts in shounen and this one here is no exception, totally digging it so far.


And gosh, Nezuko is super cute.
Kokoro did nothing wrong.

wow, Nezuko is a cutie and pretty fucking OP at that

i really like the animation and the style they have, the motion feels so natural and has gravity to it. as expected of ufotable, the fights are awesome

Kind of goofy episode and felt like it lost all the suspense and tension that made episode 1 provocative and emotional.

Nezuko staying as a girl in a basket is kind of unexciting and lame. I wish we could get over that plot and have her do more than be carried around during the daytime.

Would have preferred if the training to be a demon slayer took place at a school/academy instead of just at some random geezers house in the mountains.

Another Great Episode.


The OST of this anime is making the show many times better,it was great without it even.

The art and animation was great too.


The cutest moments were between Tanjirou and Nezuko.



Get in the basket Nezuko.


Now Sakonji has made an appearance,the training arc begins.This anime is really a contender for AOTY.


And the ED was great too.

That animation quality is impressive I must say. ED was fabulous.
Nezuko was so cute lmfao, I want her as my pet.
Yeah the first encounter with a demon is as stupid as I remember lol, still Ufotable tried its best to make it less stupid, I appreciate that.

And can we talk about the backgrounds? Like DAMN

It's NEZUKO
Do what in daylight? There would be no demons? Go for a stroll? See will do alot more since almost every scene would be at night.
Ye demon slayer academy. Cool idea. Mass produce demon slayers instead of one-on-one with talented individuals to pass down their styles. Maybe you will understand that in the next episodes. Each demon slayer is unique

Nezuko is so adorable even when kicking and literally decapitating a demon :(
And i have to say.. the animation when Tanjirou was trying to dodge those traps was amazing

I loooove the art style of this anime! It's so unique and the quality is high.

I already really love Tanjiro... he's got that Midoria level determination and i respect that shit.

Thought the added comedy elements this week were great too because it can be a bit much wen an anime is just continually dark and heavy

Looks like Tanjirou barely passed the test thanks to his amazing sense of smell and will be trained by Jiraiya-sensei , also Nezuko in the basket was just too cute.. :D
well that's just my opinion.....

Tanjirou is one honest guy lol not to mention a stubborn one. Hmm pretty strong opening as well. As expected of LISA. From the visuals looks like we will have plenty of new characters that will appear. Nezuko's attempt to fit herself into that basket sure was fun. Damm Nezuko sure was impressive kicking off a demons head like that. But even more so was the fact that the demon remains alive without it being attached to his body. That battle sure was a close call though. So demons are vanquished by sunlight huh. Tanjirou's evasion of the traps after sniffing them out sure was impressive. Now that Tanjirou has become a initiate in the corps i think things will only become harder for him for his journey of getting stronger starts now.

The whole Nezuko in the basket thing is surprisingly cute. But looks like we've completed the whole find the old sensei and pass his entrance exam thing. Interested to see what this training will actually entail. We don't really know anything about the demon slayer ppl yet.

I won't spoil anything, but you'll eventually get all the things you've mentioned above later (coming from a manga reader) :) (not exactly an academy, but a proper exam kind of like process; also Nezuko will get in some action later down the road, while not quite during the daytime due to sunlight)

The animation was better than the last episode but, the story is just as bland. Hopefully, something interesting happens soon.

I love this anime. I'm more than positive that this anime is one of the best of this season.
Apparently, demons are like vampires and zombies. The only way to kill them is by destroying their brain.

I thought it was very funny that Nezuko kicked the demon's head off with a kick. LOL.

Now begins the training of Kanjiro. What a thrill!.

Nezuko kicked the demon's head like it was football.

Tanjirou got accepted to be trained as a demon slayer.

Great episode overall.

Nezuko is a cute. That demon looked intimidating at first, then got goofy when his head got arms lmao.
Nice to see Tanjiro's training will begin soon, so we can move to the action.

Why did he rush!? seriously there was no reason to rush. Also if it's hard to breathe slow down and get lower where there is more oxygen, not only that if he was lower he'd be able to see the traps and wouldn't fall for them. But for some reason he decided to fall into every single one as if it was the only way.

This was a terrible episode, Also I dislike the fact that he couldn't kill a Demon that has probably killed f*ck tons of people including children.

So far so good this is my favourite anime this season

I love everything : the story, the characters, the OST, the general mood, the art (special mention to the use of a really nice-looking CGI, that's rare), the animation and the VA


I wonder how many episodes we'll get, butthis Spring sure is a nice anime season between this and Dororo

Disappointing episode. Didn't expect the shounen comedy to hit after such a tragic episode titled "cruelty" from last week. I expected more from this show.
