Thanks for doing this, I wonder if they'll speed it up during heavy action chapters.

is the adaptation pacing slow, fast? Seeing as it's adapting a chapter or two every episode, how many pages are in each chapter?

i hope 3 chapters per episode during fights,if it's 2 chapters even on fights say goodbye to rengoku arc,3 chapters for next episode are perfect.

I'd say that the anime pacing is just fine, neither slow nor fast. Only the first chapter have around 50 pages; the rest have 17-19 pages. Early Kimetsu chapters have really fast pacing, so it makes sense that the early episodes cover 2 chapters each. I predict that it will become 3 chapters per episode after ep 5.

I'm really happy with it. I know people take it for granted because it's ufotable, but I appreciate the studio for their attention to detail (they even animated the moving jaws of masked characters when they're speaking). Voice acting and music are top notch (by the way I feel the soundtrack so far is more Go Shiina than Yuki Kajiura. Wish people would give him more credit). Overall the anime adapts the source material faithfully, and expands upon it (such as the fight with Sabito). If they can keep up this level of quality for the remaining episode, I have no doubt this will be a great adaptation.

Think they'll make it to the Red Light District Arc? I feel that the was the first really epic battle in the series.

I don't really think so, that'll be very high paced.

My guess for the 6th episode is either till the 12th chapter or the first half of the 13th chapter. While ending on the first half of the 13th chapter is the most fitting ending, I’m not so sure they have enough time to reach it. We’ll see

Thanks for this, now I can re-read the part that was already animated. Really appreciated. (*^^*)

Hope they reach the flame pillar arc in this adaptation. That was one of my favorite arc.

Most likely gonna be the last arc of the season. Best stopping point for the season without rushing and it gives you a taste of the scope of the later arcs which is gonna serve as a great "go read the manga if you want more" end until the assumed S2 lol.

Do you think it is unlikely for them to continue with two chapters next episode?

Pretty unlikely tbh. Unlike the already adapted chapters so far, the chapters that will be adapted next episode will be pretty straightforward which can be covered quickly.
Like Xenocrisi said, it'll be either 3 chapters or 3.5 chapters for ep 6. There's the chance that they'll be shifting some scenes around a bit to make it flow better since they've already done so with the past episodes or even add some original scenes but I think it's pretty safe to go with the mentioned expectations.

So they did add quite a bit of stuff early on before Tanjirou actually meeting the demon, which I'm not complaining about since it really made the anime flows a lot better.

Ep 6 ended with chapter 11 so they're still doing 2 chapters this week.

Yeah I wasn’t expecting additional stuff tho. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing but I can’t see how much they are gonna adapt in 26 episodes if they keep going like this.

First cour will be until Drum house and start of Natagumo. 2nd cour will be Natagumo and functional recovery training arc at this pace

The most important thing is that they reach chapter 66 or whatever, when you know what happens

I'm pretty sure that won't happen. Maybe if there is Season 3 (assuming this one is split cour)

Well, next episode is adapting chapters 12, 13 and 14 for sure, so there’s hope they keep the pace with at least 3 chapters per episode. But yeah, at this point I believe you might be right. Can’t say that is a very smart choice, but hey I’m still super happy this manga is getting animated so...

Ep 7 is still adapting 2 chapters with chapter 12 and 13 this week. They can still fully adapt up to chapter 69 while keeping it average 3 chap per ep for now but at this point, I'm just gonna wait until we actually get into Natagumo Mountain Arc where most of the fights are to get a sense of where they're ending the season since I'm positively sure they're gonna keep adapting the 1st-cour on similar pacing up until the point at the end of the ED sequence.

If they end up ep 13 at the point in the ED, they can still finish up Demon Train by keeping all remaining 13 episodes on 3 chapters average btw.

Natagumo Mountain arc is quite long, but I truly doubt they wanna make it last more than 5 episodes, which would make sense, and they would still have time to adapt till chapter 69. So I’m gonna predict that the last 3/4 episodes will adapt the Demon Train arc

Probably whole 2 cour,

By the end of the second cour they should complete upto Natagumo Mountain Arc.

natagumo mountain as the final? God I hope not. I still have my faith that Ufo will adapt akaza vs Rengoku's fight for the final arc of this season.

Well if you see the OP it seems to hint at that

The first season might end at

It's not possible to cover only that much even if they keep doing 2 chapters per episode. The spider mountain arc ends around chapter 43.

They'll probably do some chapters of functional recovery training, or all of it.

They should be able to do the whole training easily, but it's not a good place to end the season on. Ideally the first season finale should be the conclusion of train arc, but it will require them to speed up the upcoming fights a bit.

Yeah it's not an ideal place to finish the season (although there'd be a nice meeting as a cliffhanger between the demons), but I think they already have season 2 in mind which will probably cover Demon train arc and red light district.

I am pretty sure it will adapt until chapter 51+/- there is that reunion and recovery arc. It is a nice setup for "looking what await for you next."

this adaptation is so good in terms of ost, bg-art and animation but damn why are they stretching the most boring parts so bad... hope they don't stick to "2chap per 1ep" during the spiderverse arc

Where’s a good ending spot (in terms of Chapter number) for the 26th episode, if I may ask? Is it likely that they’ll follow 2 Chapters per Episode for the second cour too?

Anyway, thanks for going out of your way and doing this! I’m about to catch up to the show today so I’d like to believe the pacing will remain steady throughout you see.

Chapter 66 or something like that. Although at this point it looks like is going to adapt till chapter 50 or something, and it’s not the best stopping point imo since it would mean a cliffhanger ending but whatever

Ah, I see, thanks a lot!
I’ll be hoping it ends at around the 66th Chapter too because I do not like cliffhangers, especially the season finales.

So at this pace this will end in "Functional Recovery Training Arc"?
I think its better to end on previus arc or later arc

That was very very surprising, but the episode flowed amazing and it was action ep, very good decision. I doubt they'll make 3 chapters each from now on but if they do they'll cover the train arc.

Haven’t read the manga but the beginning episodes dragged a lil imo but after 3 or 4 it picks up and so far stays at a consistent pace with little filler.

The director deserves all the internet love this episode was great.
