THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Hmm, Tanjirou cut his hair. I was just getting used to it too in this anime.

Good to see some new characters introduced this episode including the Ubuyashiki family. It sure didn't take long for him to put
his training to test though. The monster he faced this episode is absolutely hideous, even more than some of the others he's faced so far.

Action was good and Tanjirou's training did pay off after all. Cool.

MAL is back!

Well, not good as the last episode.

Still, I think that Tanjirou's training is a bit rushed.

But at least we know how Sabito and Makomo died.

Disgusting demon lmao.

Final Selection!

Stunning visuals, truly. The action was superb, not to mention the Breath of Water! Like, oh my god yes Ufotable give me more.
Tanjirou sure is a crybaby lol

Pile O’ Hands looked terrifying, and that scene in which he went crazy...wow so bloody

Seem like they added some minor stuff and move the flashback around a little, nothing major, it just something i notice while watching.

Great episode again.

Action sequences are absolutely fantastic and I love the way Tanjuro's water style is being animated. :D

Damn, that imagery of Sabito and Makomo being brutally killed by that demon. :(
Glad that Tanjuro was able to take him down. :D

Am I correct in assuming there will be users of other elemental sword arts given that Tanjuro is water? Cause I am so looking forward to seeing more of these fight sequences animated. xD

Great episode.

Good thing Tanjirou was able to defeat that last demon. All his tough training is paying off.

Sabito and Makomo died in really fucked up ways but at least that demon got what he deserved now thanks to Tanjiro.
Overall it was a good episode, and he animation and effects were on point too. Even if Zenitsu appeared only for seconds it already made me happy

His sense of spell sure gave him a unique advantage. Its nice to see that Tanjiro managed to pass into Final selection. Hmm so it was indeed as it was hinted in that Sabito and Makomo were actually ghosts. So the demons are affected by the flowers huh thats kinda surprising. Interesting in that how the final selection is essentially a survival test. Funny in how even demons have turf wars as well. Still the first real fight that Tanjiro had against those two demons sure was a tense one. That morph demon though while appearing strong sure was gross. Still perhaps it was fate that allowed Tanjiro to meet him as it gave him the chance to face Sabito and Makomo's killer. While the fight against it was awesome the insight offered by Sabito and Makomo about the enemy also served to make the fight more interesting as well. Can't wait to see how this battle goes.

This episode was pretty dope, really like how it was directed, it was to the point and the visuals were really good - I like how it has its own distinctive style, especially in the actions sequences here, every time Tanjirou was swinging his sword, that water-like graphic is stylistically appealing. That monster was pretty creepy, and him devouring all of Sakonji Urokodaki's former pupils but he was put to rest in the end.

how did the "soul" of the two dead children appear pro tanjirou? And why only for him?
Why did not Sakonji kill the demon he captured 47 years ago? in 47 years of the hottest time to find a way to cut off the demon's head, and why test you in a place that has Demons? This place should be targeted by people to kill the demons and not to take an entrance examination.
This anime is a disappointment, a bad written trash

Fuuuuck! That was so amazing! The combat scenes in this anime are so awesome and i love how vibrant and stylistic the art is!

That part about Sabito & Makomo broke my heart! I hope they're in the anime more cause i really like them!

Seriously though, I can already tell this is gonna be one of my fav anime of the year!

I'm a little bit disappointed though... why the fuck did Tanjirou cut his hair?! It was so beautiful wen it was long!

Another episode with gorgeous ost and animation. That wisteria path looked so beautiful. The breath animation looked amazing too.
Those kids met quite a gruesome ending. I guess since none of his students came back, he never got to know which demon killed them, maybe?

Exactly, the combat scenes were super amazing.
I was super baffled when they told us about the death of Sabio and Makomo.
Damn, I can't wait for the next episode!

this is a survival exams, if they can't survive in a place that has a demons in it then how the hell they can even slay a demon?

and why he should tho? We don't even know if sakonji is aware of the demon that he captured is still alive

The apparitions of the dead have been used in fiction for centuries to accomplish a variety of things, like Hamlet's father's ghost for example. What's more is that the series is still in the process of establishing how it's universe works, so you can't knock it as an ass-pull either.

Sakonji captured the demon alive, which is significantly harder than killing it. He didn't let the demon live for 47 years, he just didn't intend to kill it.

Why would the demon killing corps target and destroy a place that they themselves set up to test recruits? That would just be counter productive.

Strengthen your grasp on gramar and shit before trying to play the role of the pretentious anime elitist pls, I can only take so much secondhand embarrassment.

Action, animation and music were yet again great. So the two children who helped him were actually ghosts! Interesting. Tanjiro is a bit of a crybaby but I have really come to like this anime. Can't wait for the next episode!

Glad that Tanjuro was able to take him down. :D


Pretty much this. Hype series all the way and definitely a hot AOTS contender.

It's still hard to swallow that characters are falling like flies :D :(

So if she doesn't mind having it on, seems she doesn't really want to eat humans anyway?

Ah so Mob Psycho S2 is a 4/10 and the masterpiece Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood a 5/10 to you. On the other hand bullshits like Naruto Shippuden is a 9/10 (WOW *_*), Rokka no Yuusha is a 8/10.
Now this comment of your makes sense.

Impressive episode but a lot of it due to neat animation. So far it's pretty standard, overcome yourself and defeat the monsters and of course our MC could manage something no one else could before. Well, at least it's good he's a decent fighter already, I wonder how the plot will move later on.

Midway through the episode, I thought I liked the music. Then, I thought I really really liked it. So, I wondered if Kajiura Yuki had composed them. After checking it, it seems I was right. I am so glad she hasn't disappeared.

This episode wasn't bad. It wasn't that good, but I was still able to watch it enough to watch the next episode as well.

The blond guy really stands out. Why is drawn in a different artstyle?

The animation is brilliant, i think the best i‘ve seen in a while. Tanjirou kicking some ass, he gets cooler and cooler. I really liked him with the long hair tho, made him look like a badass.
Those 2 children died in an awful way and it made me really sad, that disgusting demon got what it deserved.
To sum it up, the episode was amazing and i can‘t wait for next week 😊

Me during episode 1: Why'd they cut off Tanjiro's cool ponytail?!
Me last episode: Oh, it was a time skip so we can get his ponytail back! Good.
Me this episode, seeing Tanjiro pick up the clippers: PUT THEM DOWN, YOU MONSTER!

Wow, just amazing is all I can say. This anime has some of the best fight choreography I've ever seen, and this episode is a shining example of that, I have never seen fights like this outside a Bones or Ufotable anime with the only exception being the first season of One punch man. Beautiful choreography aside it was great seeing Tanjirou's development, it's been fast but really well done, he has gone from a scared kid to a badass demon slayer in 2 episodes and it never felt forced. To make such a fast transition feel so natural is praiseworthy, the directing outside the fights was also really solid, Ufotable is pulling all the stops here. Up till now, the hype had kind of worsened the anime for me because everyone was talking like it was a sure 9/10 or higher, and although I was impressed at first, it was not as much as I expected, but these last 2 episodes have really changed that. Now I'm just enjoying it for what it is.
