Lol, Zenitsu afraid of spiders.

Looks like we got another Demon Slayer making their appearance this episode. I personally thought they made the episode feel intimidating despite the comedy. (music made the experience better) Zenitsu's personality is still quite amusing imo. He just overreacts so much.

That demon manipulating the spider threads is a crafty monster.

Here we are, Natagumo Mountain Arc begins!

Looking forward to how Zenitsu will handle the spiders left all alone.

Shinobu and Giyuu appears again!

Great episode as always.

Poor Zenitsu. He got left all alone.

Tanjirou being able to figure out the secret behind the spider thread was smart. Wonder how the guys will handle the demon behind it.

If you've got arachnophobia, this was probably an unsettling episode.

Great episode again.

Hah, Zenitsu reaction to Nezuko and him chasing her and Tanjuro in circles was amusing. xD

I guess this is the start of a new arc, spider demon family? Interesting.
I loved the sequence where Inousuke used his Spatial Detection skill, that was so cool. xD

I hope there's more Zenitsu fights this arc, I wanna see more of his lightning sword skills.

ok at least we will gonna see some higher ranking demon slayers join this fight since there must be some higher ranking demons this time too

Zenitsu needs to sleep already and become a sleepwalker fighter again though

and Inosuke got an awesome sense power too that is spatial awareness and i prefer that more than Tanjiros smell sense and Zenitsus sound sense

Jealousy really can be a potent force lol. Zenitsu's love struck self kinda looks creepy. Still funny how the simple chase escalated. Damm this demon really has been busy in killing the corps members who were sent to take her down. Its nice to meet some new members of the corps. It must be an unnerving experience to be attacked by your allies. Even though they're nothing more than puppets now. Hmm Inosuke's sense ability sure was impressive. An interesting ep that served to not just expand and improve upon the bonds that have been forged between the three but also introduce quite the intriguing group of demons that serve as the trio's next mission objective.

Lol Zenitsu was left alone arguing with his sparrow. I'm not surprised we got a demon related to spiders given the japanese folklores or rather it would be a wasted opportunity not having one. Inosuke's ability was pretty convenient for tracking enemies.

Thanks to modern media exposure that everyone, including those who not read the manga, know within 10 seconds that it's spider demon pulling the web everywhere while it takes almost a dozen life for demon killing corps to know who's behind.

Another great ep as always!
This is really striking out to be my favorite shonen show of 2019, Fire Force feels a bit too shounen generic like and Dr.Stone is more on the being smart side with little to no less fighting, then again those 2 only started recently so its too early to judge them.
Tanjiro's one badass MC, smart to boot, he's like an upgraded ver of Deku since Tanjiro isnt nervous all the time and doesnt really have anyone to rely on when push comes to shove, and plus I just love the setting of this series more than MHA and the others.
2019 is a damn blessing for shonen lovers.
Boar dude is getting easier and easier to tolerate but Zenitsu still gets on my nerves sometimes.
Also that Shinobu girl... was that Hayami Saori's voice!?

i can really appreciate the ufotable cinematic style here. they actually put the medium to good use and don't just colour in pages from the manga. i haven't read the manga, so i was curious to see how the spatial awareness sequence was originally depicted.



very typical shounen manga, where the power is vaguely drawn and mostly explained in text boxes. if this were mob psycho, one of the characters would just narrate the description from the boxes, a very lazy solution. but the ufotable team is quite smart and there's is no verbal explanation. instead, they opted to show how his power works with a very simple hosoda-esque traveling POV sequence with a neat, simple inverse grayscaling effect. this is how action mangas should be adapted. tachikawa take note.

I'm glad they are finally bringing the Pillars. Giyuu hasn't appeared since the first arc and we still haven't seen the remaining 7 (cause Shinobu has appeared this episode). I'm hyped for this arc.

Also hurray for hot albino spider demon MILF.

Considering the track of the evil demons in this series, she probably will not last long, so gotta enjoy her while I can.

Me too. I had this anime rated a 9 until Zenitsu showed up. I have it at 7 now and I'm being generous because I'm still interested in the main plot and the animation is still great, otherwise it'd be a 5. It's honestly a huge disappointment for me how the amazing drama created in the first 10 episodes was completely ruined by this awful comedy. I don't dislike comedy in dramas, mind you, but this comedy just doesn't fit with the original mood the anime set. I'm so disappointed. It was my favorite anime of the season.

So those are the Hashira, Giyu is apparently one of them...and new characters!

Props to Inosuke for showing some sensory skillz!

Five of them? As if one manipulating lots of red shirt Demon Slayers like puppets wasn't bad enough, we have to deal with unknown four more, three of whom hasn't been clearly seen yet.

Nothing is an absolute reality, all is permitted.

Omfg Inosuke's Demon Slaying technique is so fucking awesome! The three combined are gonna be one hell of a team.

:sigh: I guess that means Zenitsu will, unfortunately, stick around, which ruins the show for me quite a bit since he doesn't amuse me at. He is simply annoying. Again a slow episode but at least it looks like it will be the beginning of a new story arc with a new monster. Hope this is better than the last.

On the whole, the story doesn't look like much. Reminded me of one of the early stories from Inyuasha, the demon who used her hair to manipulate people like puppets.

Please support KyoAni!

Legit cannot wait for next week bruh, I mean they got us hyped with the new enemies and that breathing skill so next episode should really be filled with like action. Also I believe Zenitsu will save the day again as now he has found a purpose not be afraid as long as he thinks of Nezuko, I honestly think he doesn't need to be asleep in order to draw out his power anymore with the way things are going rn.

Oooh, spatial awareness, I wonder if all demon slayers have a skill -I mean, even Urokodaki had something kinda unique to their abilities; it'd be a bummer otherwise.
Great episode nonetheless, I wonder what's going to happen next weekn

I love this series and every single aspect of it, even the comedy scenes because those were very funny (also, I liked Zenitsu and Inosuke instantly), but the beginning of the episode was not good at all because of the way it was handled...

At least the team moved to their next mission!

The setting of it is pretty interesting. Also, poor guys, having to kill each other while being controlled by that demon. I thought Zenitsu was going to stay out of the mount for the rest of the arc, but he went there just for Nezuko lol. That thing of characters going separate ways in the same place until the end of the arc reminds me a lot to One Piece.

Giyuu finally appears again! He looks like an interesting character. Maybe it's just me, but he looks very ufotable-ish (I'm comparing his design to any Fate characters like Kiritsugu).

Inosuke's ability is OP, but it was only one demon and there are four more to go!

I liked this episode, but I really hate something about it: spiders. Geez, out of every animal or bug that exists in the world, it had to be spiders. That thing caught me off guard! Oh my... And it's not just that! I've read a wiki where it said this arc lasts from manga's chapter 28 to 44, and knowing the number of chapters this anime is adapting per episode, we'll spend half this cour standing spiders. Oh dear...

Looking forward to the next episode btw. I want to see more interactions between Nezuko and Zenitsu, not the one we saw at the beginning tho

Yeah, the chase at the beginning was really funny.

I'm also up for more badassness from Zenitsu, that would be cool.

But I also have to agree with others that the series became overall less enjyoable since Zenitsu is around. Hope we get out of this "low" soon.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake.

This show is definitely much better at forest backgrounds then the inside of house backgrounds. The whole "we're gonna fight in a small room for 2-3 episodes" was getting pretty claustrophobic.

God the characters are so silly at times, it makes for hilarious scenes.

So their next job is to mount Natagumo, where Demon Slayers started killing each other. So it seems a family of 5 spider demons are living there. That sure is gonna be a challenge for the group. Especially since Zenitsu is a scaredy cat and probably won't be of any help so far. I hope he's gonna man up a bit soon.. Also his obsession with girls is ridiculous if you ask me XD

Inosuke showing off his skill, that's a pretty handy skill to have, to be able to locate a Demon like that.

I couldn't help but laugh at the first four minutes of Zenitsu chasing Nezuko and Tanjiro then Inosuke had to get in on the chasing Tanjiro game. Inosuke is my favorite Demon Slayer so far when he displayed his spacial awareness technique. Damn these cliffhangers coming in when the fight was just about to get started. Can't wait until next week.

Another great episode and it's already 15th in the row. Originally the first episode didn't impress me that much and it was mainly because of ufotable putting in work that I continued watching but now, even though the quality remains top notch, be it story, the world setting or the characters this series has everything going for it. I especially like Tanjuro as an MC.

Like this, to me this has slowly became the best shounen of the new age of shounens.
The only reason why I didn't pick up the manga yet is because ufotable is going all out but if the first season ends without announcement of the second one, I'm immediately jumping for it... then again even if there is announcement I might not be able to hold myself back regardless.

A new mission has arrived for Tanjirou, Inosuke and Zenitsu, the trio of demon slayers must go to Natagumo mountain.

The beginning of the episode was quite funny, the little Nezuko coming out of her box will always melt my heart how adorable she looks, but now poor Nezuko will have to endure the harassment of Zenitsu.
Inosuke surprised me in this episode, I think his brain is doing well thanks to be in the company of Tanjirou and Zenitsu, he learns new things and I hope he stops being a muscle head.
The new demons that the boys have to face I liked a lot, especially the design of these demon spiders family, but I also liked the female demon spider's ability, I like very much the users that can control the enemy like puppets.
I have a bad feeling with the disgusting smell that Tanjirou perceives, he reminded me when he met Kibutsuji Muzan, so maybe in the middle of the demons spiders family there is a member of the twelve demonic moons.
I laughed a lot with the damn Zenitsu in this episode, especially when he was crying because Tanjirou and Inosuke left him alone, in addition to his changing personality.

But what I must emphasize about this episode is that at last we saw another Pilar apart from Giyu, Shinobu is so cute and the VA is Saori Hayami, she is to perfect and I assume that in the episodes that follow from this new arc she will enter combat, I can not stand the anxiety.

This is still a really weird group, and they don't work well together as a trio at all. BUT AS A DUO, there's something there. At least for now anyways, now that the party has grown, I expect them to naturally begin working together more according to the situation. I look forward to seeing this battle go down.
