I knew I was stanning greatness.
Cannot wait for even more development on Zenitsu and his confrontation with a certain bitter and jealous person of his past. Zenitsu Agastuma God of Lightning and Lord of the Thunder ❤

Sasuga Ufotable. That's some sakuga awesome shit there is.

Finally getting honed in on Zenitsu and his backstory, full or scaredy-cat issues, but of a heart of gold, wanting to protect the people he love. Yes, he has only ONE attack (out of 6 Thunder techniques), but that strength is molded from his lessons in his young days. The Zenitsu we know who is annoying, isn't annoying for that exact reason and comic relief cowardice.

Having more respect for Zenitsu, the once useless and cowardish boy, into a bad-ass powerhouse.

Zenitsu's master has the patience of a god to be able to put up with Zenitsu's constant crying.

The animation with Zenitsu's attack looked incredible!

I somehow already predicted that Zenitsu might be the strongest of them three.. The way he finishes the first one of the drum demon was overpowered, and he's real skill has also been rarely appeared that much, means he DOES have something special..
And the way he demolish the spider boy with his lightning move really got my spine shivering

Still wasn't mentioned why Zenitsu is always unconscious whenever he's in badass mode though

he's too scared, that's why he need a state where he can fight without fear. And since he have a great hearing, he doesn't need to open his eyes when he fight.

That animation when Zenitsu was dashing around was fucking amazing, looked so damn badass. More Zenitsu action for sure. He's a funny dude just don't knock him out or he'll destroy you.

Whoaa, Zenitsu was so badass this episode, for once I didn't miss Tanjiro being the fighter.

Will Zenitsu ever be able to fight while being awake? I just want him to realize himself how powerful he is and that all that training was worth it. I want him to value himself more!


And that big spider father... protecting the family, but abusing the mom? Yeah, right, whatever, just go and bite the dust *rooting for the slayer duo next episode*

Hmmmmm, gotta give it to the animators, the spider dude and all the people he turned into spiders were all really freaking creepy looking.

Zenitsu, is once again, actually doing something. Feel like it's been a while since we last saw that happen. And we got backstory on him, which was nice, I've been wondering about his upbringing for a while now. Dude may only have one ability, but damn, that is one seriously cool ability. Like some dude back on page one posted kind of,

Oh and hey, his voice actor finally got some rest while also contributing to an episode.

Chuntaro MVP lol. Great fight scene in this episode. I'll hazard a guess we get Inosuke's backstory in the next episode.

Ok, I know that those spiders with human heads are supposed to be creepy but I found them funny tbh. It was great we saw Zenitsu's backstory which was pretty entertaining mainly because of his grandpa. He's probably the strongest of the three in the team when he falls asleep.

Tanjiro and Inosuke will probably have to retreat from this fight against that dude. Cannot see them standing a chance the way they are now.
well, you would be surprised after 2 episodes though

What a great episode! Not a fan of him screaming but at least now u know why he is like this, he has a lot of space for great character development.
Next eps will be epic!

The spider guy describes the effects of the poison, idk why did he
phantomfandom said:
A villain that describe his poison effect minute by minute, what a generous spider!

I think it's because the spider boy knows that Zenitsu is a coward and describes the poison just to scare Zenitsu, hoping to make Zenitsu lose hope.

The production value for Zenitsu's fight is off the roof once again. Freaking dope and epic! I'm going to guess Nezuko is somehow going to play a part and help Zenitsu control his power in the future.

At first I disliked Zenitsu, but after this episode, he really does make everything funny. So, that's how Zenitsu's hair is orange, interesting really. I guess he will die though, there's no way to stop the poison I believe. Seems like they're up against the Father of all of them, that's troublesome. Quite the spider nest those guys formed, really creepy. Funny & sad episode.

There is nothing more terrifying than bad CG spiders

This was a really heartwarming episode for Zenitsu's character development. He never believed in himself, but Gramps saw something in Zenitsu that he couldn't see. He has natural talent to be a strong Demon Slayer but lacks confidence in conviction and self worth.

Some really beautiful action cuts this episode as well. I think we just witnessed Zenitsu open the 5th inner gate, that power up was hardcore!

NOOOOOOOOO, spiders with a human head gave me nightmares. As an arachnophobic, it was pretty uncomfortable lmao.

Zenitsu's attack are so awesome. It was great we saw Zenitsu's backstory. He just became a whole different character.

Ukogi is absolutely precious ahhhh


So Zenitsu's hair changed after getting hit by lightning from climbing a tree during one of his freak-outs. Fitting since he uses lightning moves. I wonder what his "gramps" saw in him to never give up on him? Interesting that this same Gramps used to be the highest rank in the Demon Corps

Zenitsu's backstory was great! It was good to see how his journey began. On the other hand he had to face that creepy spider demon with even more creepy ability to turn humans into spiders with big bald scary heads, lol.

Mastering only one form was the best for Zenitsu. What he is able to do while "falling asleep" is just priceless and astonishing. Plus Zenitsu got a huge power-up after being hit by thunder.

Pretty good episode, I have 2 complaints about it though:

1: I'm loving this anime but Zenitsu is getting rather annoying. I love his powerup and all, he's such a badass in those moments but when he's being his normal self he tries to act as a comic relief for the series and instead of me laughing at his antics I just find it rather boring. It would be better if they tone down that comic relief stuff, make him act like a normal guy for once and have him say important stuff from time to time but no, every time he opens his mouth is just to complain or say something stupid. I've had enough of that crap, a lot of time is being wasted on that crap and it isn't even funny, that's simply forced comedy, not funny at all.

2: The way he got his blonde hair was anti-climatic, he was struck by a lighting bolt and suddenly he has blonde hair? it would have been better if he got the blonde hair through his training, like being able to unleash his lightning abilities through the harsh training allowed his DNA to have some changes in the body and that made his hair change it's colors, that's would have been better IMHO.

That's my 2 complaints so far, a lot of time is being spent in the comic relief moments with Zenitsu acting, doing or yelling something stupid and this happen for like 90% of the time that fucking character is on-screen, they need to tone that shit down and find a better 'funnier' way for the comic relief moments.

now that they showed zenitsu from the past with his black hair, it all adds up now.
he's rock lee...

well having learned just one move is a bit underwhelming, but as bruce lee said, we fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks but the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.

These Zenitsu awakening feel kinda odd tbh, like wtf is going on, and why cant he just be chill and have acess to that power whenever he wants?!

Otherwise, some nice sakuga there, was electrifying!
