wait are you in the 1st season? ye 1st season had pacing issues and is my least fav season but it only gets better and better from there.
no i was watched the last season and i dont get it why u could say it gets better? the pacing, the story and character still boring for me nothing special and overrated imo
Did u even watched season 1 to s3p1 because you don't even know how important the story was in those last 4 episodes or were you watching it just for the action?
Should I troll in the troll bait threads? It is kinda idiotic to be logical in the troll bait threads. Well, it will depend on my mood.

Heard this episode was "godly" or something, and I do agree that the animation was "godly," but overall, uhm, no. The twelve demons are really powerful, that's for sure. Considering Tanjirou couldn't even slash pre-transformation father, him slashing the default threads by the demon made no sense, the demon made the threads even stronger afterwards, and so Tanjirou received another out-of-nowhere powerboost, a literal ass-pull. Well, that was a big disappointment.

No he is talking about S3p2. I think he didn't even watched season 1 to s3p1, therefore he was skipping scenes after ep.6 which are really important for the story. I maybe wrong about him but everyone who has watched AOT completely knows that how important was the basement reveal.
i watched all the season and yes i know the basement reveal is the key in aot, but for me the reveal is kinda disappointed like the devil things out of nowhere. i was expecting that titans made from some science/military but im wrong. and most boring of all is the politics of aot made me lost interest in aot

if it is not your cup of tea and you don't like those elements in your story that is fine. But the devil things was not outta nowhere as if I m remember two things from ep. 1 of season 1 of AOT then colossal titan appearance and Eren's dream come to mind which were more devil/magical than science and then in ep.2 grisha was coming from somewhere and it was the place that you saw in season 3 part 1. Then there is an side story ova called ilse's notebook which came way before the reveal and it also foreshadowed the reveal. Foreshadowing was at many other places before the basement reveal.

I think its ridiculous how people try to take away from this anime by criticizing the plot or characters. Its a Shonen, not Citizen Kane.

If the story is so incoherent, that you constantly have to question its development, so much that it takes from your viewing experience, then you might have applied the wrong standards. Maybe you missed the point.

Masterful Animation? Yes

...but, it was pretty much standard 'MC is about to die so develops some never seen before power to defeat the enemy', which is standard shounen, so not sure what all the fuss is about.

To me, everything was fine up to this episode, the last five minutes were horrendous in terms of story I believe. "criticizing the plot or characters" should be done, not doing that would result in bad shows having good rating; which is already happening these days. The massive nonsensical powerboosts by Tanjirou just made no sense at all, shounon or not, it was the first time this show did something so abrupt.

The sudden power-up is a very common trope in this genre. Its about overcoming adversity in a moment of truth. Its do or die.
I understand that it distracted you too much. But me personally, I was genuinely surprised. I expected a different trope, the "fail and be saved by a stronger senpai" trope, and got my expectations subverted.

I was completely expecting "fail and be saved by a stronger senpai," I thought that's going to be the "best shounen episode" thingy. It does happen often in this trope, but just like in this one, if it happens nonsensically, it will get criticized, and don't try to justify it by saying it shouldn't get critizied just because it happened before. We can take One Piece as a reference, a powerup mid-battle happened when Zoro fought Mr. 1, yet that one made sense, in fact so much that some people didn't even understand the depth behind it, and just brushed it off as "nonsensical." This should get criticized equally, this trope or not.

Dude, if u paid attention, u should know that Tajiro was using the tenth water form to cut the threads. He attempted to use it to cut the Father demon but got blasted away before he could do so.
There were also quite a few clues in prevous episodes that Tanjiro was connected to fire somehow.

don't, just don't. He clearly said "I can't cut these" but the next second cut them. Just because "he's connected to fire" doesn't imply it makes sense, since it doesn't.

I LOST MY WORDS LOOKING AT THIS MASTERPIECE OF ANIME! EVERYTHING WAS A PERFECTION! I CRIED AND REWATCH THIS EPISODE LIKE EVERYDAY!

well im not exaggerating, but this is the truth and i know y'all just witnessed it
in terms of animation, ost and story was so damn PERFECT!
BEST EPISODE AND ANIME OF THE YEAR HANDS DOWN NO DOUBT

who said AOT as aoty candidate? that was best joke of the year lmao. this anime should be praised more than aot and deserve a score above 9


Trust me dude I loved this episode as much as everyone else here but tbh if this show was not animated by ufotable or produced as well as it is, maybe it wouldn't even be in my top 5 of this year.

I am not saying the story is bad or anything. Fate/Stay Night ubw had amazing animation too but i hated it because how garbage its story was compared to its prequel.

So the people saying its all because of animation only aren't right either but when it comes to writing i would have to say aot is the superior one.

also you probably said what you said because you haven't watched aot yet so go and do yourselves a favor and watch it! ;)


Fate ubw is better than zero. Zero was the boring one

"Considering Tanjirou couldn't even slash pre-transformation father, him slashing the default threads by the demon made no sense".

He cut the default threads with the tenth form. He never got to do so against the father demon.

strongly disagree, this episode ALONE CANT make the anime deserve an aoty. Totally agree this episode was godly but aot still far better overall (for me at least)
everyday, we stray further from god

You said that it didn't make any sense that Tanjiro was unable to slash the father since he was able to cut the default threads. I'm simply correcting you that Tanjiro never used the tenth form to cut the father. That's all.

Then correct me on this one: after father transformed, he was slain in an instant by Tomioka Giyuu, and then Tomioka Giyuu said this: "This demon doesn't even come close to one of the Twelve," yet once father transformed, Inosuke was beaten up without a sweat. Pretty sure Tanjirou would use his full-power in such a life-or-death situation by the way, especially considering how many people died just moments ago.

So i guess you don't remember that Tanjiro was preparing to use the tenth form but got blasted away before he could cut him with the tenth form.

How hard is it to get?
Do i have to post the scene?

I dont understand you. How is this nonsensical? We are only 19 episodes in and you dont have any point of reference as to how the rules are in this world.
We dont know about the Demon Arts, the Breathing methods, the 12 Super Demons, what the lower 5 are, what the deal with his father dance is, nothing.

So basically youre calling it nonsense, because it hasnt been set up long enough for you? None of his breathing techniques have been set up.

So dont tell me you had enough info to know what to expect, or what makes sense in this world. We dont know shit so far..

Oh god this is annoying. Yes of course he is full power When he fought the father and he is about to use his tenth form againts the father BUT He got blasted away Right BEFORE he could use the tenth form. Dude is that really hard for you to understand? Or did you even read the subs? Jfc

I hope they balance out the rest of the episodes because that was a masterpiece. I was clapping at the end of it, goosebumps all over my body.. :D only started watching it out of curiosity to see another ufotable goodness and they really don't disappoint. I was impressed with how they animated that traditional dance too, ost was very well suited. Can't wait for more!!

It pretty much does make it nonsensical considering the "father dance" occured only at the very end. However, moments before it was stated: "Theory that people look for a solution to survive right before death - causing them to experience their life before their eyes," which is a nice touch. Nonetheless, the powerup shouldn't make him like 10 times stronger, it's just...abrupt. I won't continue debating with you by the way, since debunking hardcore fanboys is just tiresome and borderline impossible with their narrow mindsets when it comes to listening to what other people say.

eh not 10 times not even close, he couldnt even cut rui's neck without nezuko's blood anyway, so tanjirou powerup is wayyyy from abrupt.

Excuse me, but I post in every episode discussion once I watch the episode, you were the one to reply to my thoughts on the episode. I didn't intend to insult you by the way.

@Jfs_ Dealing with someone as oblivious as you is a giant headache. Stop trying to "defend" your new favorite show, let people have their opinions and thoughts.

In defense of this episode and to answer to all the people who are claiming this episode to be bs in terms of story writing or say that its cliche and all, I would say there was plenty of foreshadowing for his power up scene.

Here are all the foreshadowing i noticed for this uptill now:-

1) Tanjirou was expected to have crimson sword cause he was son of fire or something
2) When Kibutsuji asked his goons to track tanjirou, he said something along the lines of 'find the guy with hanada(idr the spelling) earrings
3)Even in the opening lyrics there is a line in eng translation that 'I will let the crimson lotus grow'

and now maybe they should have done a bit more foreshadowing and even i felt that tanjirou's sword will surely change when they said some thing along the lines that 'people with black colored sword don't live long though the color can change over time too'

Also as i mentioned before the episode was great and all, I am loving the show too but I would say(to say the least) its going a bit too far to say that this anime is a masterpiece or the best anime ever.

This was amazing Holy shit, kimetsu is the only contender for taking MP100 S2 title for AOTY atm

But those powerups man, I wish some background was made before It, but oh well nothing is perfect
this episode sure was good and the last 5 minutes was a total bomb, best episode of the entire series so far. but, this episode alone still couldnt make the anime become aoty. the best candidates to be aoty for me so far only AOT S3p2 and MOB2


You're right I totally forgot about shingeki, still I think kimetsu is close up there, I'm really enjoying it but lets see how it goes

This is anime of the year! I don't care what anyone says.
This is a masterpiece. Shame on MAL community not voting it 9.0 and above. It is better than AOT season 3.
And some people are saying Vinland Saga is anime of the year. Nope this is anime of the year!


it's a shame that you're shaming others because of your taste.
for us and many, we don't consider an anime as the best just because of some godly animation,
there's the big factor and it's the story and plot, AOT's story is so much better and unique, it's on another whole level.

is this the first time we see a shounen MC gets fired up and slay his enemy?!
is the shounen battles are something new??

the art and animation take the cake her, without the godly work from ufotable, the show might didn't get all that praise, without the animation i don't find the story itself that good,
but the magnificent animation made the show 10x times better, it made me enjoy it entirely, that what blew my mind, not the writing.

you can't disrespect a show that relys so much on writing skills, rich dialogues and deep characters like that.

therefore, i might give KNY 8 because i don't like the forced comedy that really threw me off, and the gore feeling that i got early in episode 1 is gone now(it made me even cry), and for the annoying character like Zenitsu, but i would forgive Zenitsu, he might change, i would rather say i don't find the story that epic, so it's 8 or 9 for me. and probably that's what some might think of, see? it's not that complicated.

personally, AOT to me is the AOTY and VS also.
KNY is one of the best this year.

Holy fucking shit. Those were some of the most beautiful animations I've ever seen in my life. I literally gasped while watching it. Definitely the best fight I've seen all year. Crunchyroll, if this doesn't earn Fight of the Year and you give it to My Hero Academia again, I will fucking start a riot.

So basically youre calling it nonsense, because it hasnt been set up long enough for you? None of his breathing techniques have been set up.

So dont tell me you had enough info to know what to expect, or what makes sense in this world. We dont know shit so far..


That's the point. We don't know anything.

If nothing is step up for the moment, why would I be excited when it happens? Imagine that there was no set up at all for Goku going SSJ vs Freeza. The saiyans being a race that get stronger after each close fight. The power struggle between the saiyans and Freeza. Vegeta blindly believing in the legend and trying and failing to achieve it. Goku coming to grasps with his duty. The transformation between the calm and collected Goku to a rageful and arrogant one.

What was set up for Tanjiro doing what he did in episode 19? I don't even care about foreshadowing, as Toriyama was notorious for writing Dragonball as he went along, but he knew how to prepare the most iconic moment in the franchise.

In defense of this episode and to answer to all the people who are claiming this episode to be bs in terms of story writing or say that its cliche and all, I would say there was plenty of foreshadowing for his power up scene.

Here are all the foreshadowing i noticed for this uptill now:-

1) Tanjirou was expected to have crimson sword cause he was son of fire or something
2) When Kibutsuji asked his goons to track tanjirou, he said something along the lines of 'find the guy with hanada(idr the spelling) earrings
3)Even in the opening lyrics there is a line in eng translation that 'I will let the crimson lotus grow'

and now maybe they should have done a bit more foreshadowing and even i felt that tanjirou's sword will surely change when they said some thing along the lines that 'people with black colored sword don't live long though the color can change over time too'

Also as i mentioned before the episode was great and all, I am loving the show too but I would say(to say the least) its going a bit too far to say that this anime is a masterpiece or the best anime ever.


The problem is that none of those things mean anything. What does it mean to be a son of fire? Or the crimson sword? What about the earings?

Couldn't resist it and watched the final scene of the episode, despite having dropped this very early on. And yes, the animation was admittedly godly.

However, gotta say that it looked like a typical shonen emotion-based, determination power-up, which is something other shounens are heavily criticized and looked-down for. It really kinda disappoints me that for the inclusion of the same characteristic element, ones are praised, yet others crucified like if they had committed a sin.

Animation and OST are top-tier for me, but for 75% of the episode, this was just another really good Demon Slayer episode, nothing more.

I've been watching the series since May and it's probably my favourite battle-shounen at the moment. Might even put it up there with Mob Psycho II at a push at the end of the year depending on how the rest of the season plays out.

What's up with all the AoT bashing? Unfair if you ask me as they are two different types of anime now. One of these is 19 episodes in and barely began to scratch the surface of it's story, and had one top notch episode in it's time. It's a fairly typical battle-shounen with outstanding visuals and sound, but has plenty of room to grow and develop. If the manga is anything to do by, it should be really good.

The other is 60 odd episodes in into its story and has a handful of episodes that are genuinely fantastic, with one probably up there for one of the best anime episodes of all time. The story has deviated away from it's shounen-esque roots of S1 and delving into more complex and mature political themes. If it's final season is adapted well, then it should go down as an absolute classic of the medium.

It's ok to enjoy one without bashing the other. Fanbases are so infuriating.

I LOST MY WORDS LOOKING AT THIS MASTERPIECE OF ANIME! EVERYTHING WAS A PERFECTION! I CRIED AND REWATCH THIS EPISODE LIKE EVERYDAY!

well im not exaggerating, but this is the truth and i know y'all just witnessed it
in terms of animation, ost and story was so damn PERFECT!
BEST EPISODE AND ANIME OF THE YEAR HANDS DOWN NO DOUBT

who said AOT as aoty candidate? that was best joke of the year lmao. this anime should be praised more than aot and deserve a score above 9
strongly disagree, this episode ALONE CANT make the anime deserve an aoty. Totally agree this episode was godly but aot still far better overall (for me at least)


As far as I'm aware, the anime is sitting ar around 8.5 on MAL. That's probably what I'd score it overall as well. One great episode a masterpiece it does not make.

+100/100 Wow! There are not enough words to describe how amazing this episode was. The animation, the story, the plot, the ost ... reached a very high level with this episode.
I was amazed at the introduction of Tanjiro's father, the dance of the Fire God, and the new techniques of Tanjiro and Nezuko. That left me speechless and more intrigued than usual. From this moment on, so many questions are born, many more than the ones I had before.
Anyway, this was, without a doubt, the best episode of this anime, so far. I remembered because I love him, and I consider him one of my favorite anime. I remembered the great emotion I felt when I first saw the first episode. I hope you continue on this good path, and improve more and more.

OH YEAH! FIRE! I LOVE FIRE! 🔥😁

Ps: It was a surprise to me to know that what looked like a scar on Tanjiro's forehead is a birthmark he inherited from his father.

Those memories were nostalgic, and this felt much more with that ending at the end.

One visually splendid episode does not make the entire anime a masterpiece.
That being said i'd like to see more Nezuko.


Thousands of people literally CRIED at the end of this episode. What is a masterpiece, if not something that can evoke such strong emotions? I have been to museums and art galleries, but none of their so called masterpieces made me react that strongly. Whats an anime got to do, Sir?

I respect you opinion, dont get me wrong.
But you say that you cannot get excited for this episode because there was no set up.
Then, when it comes to Dragonball, you dont even care about foreshadowing?
Thats some major bias my friend.

Lol, my point exactly. This guy is just assuming stuff that was literally never mentioned in previous episodes and they pulled it all in a single episode in under 5 minutes.


It seems that:

1. You don't pay attention to it because poor attention span
2. You aren't even watching this and just came to piss off because the anime suddenly became praised because it deserves it.
Smh people hate talk no jutsu but when a character makes something amazing with decent amount of explanation, people get triggered because that should've explained in ten arcs.

But we all know that you and most alt accounts are just mad because Yaiba is being heavily praised ( thing that it does deserve ) and your current favorite anime doesn't.

Like people who is watching Vinland saga are so triggered by this that they started talking shit like "At least Vinland has story unlike KnY" in the anime ep discussion?????

Extremely childish community attacks again.




Absolutely not, especially the second one... come on.
And just to add, this is my first and only account I use. Don't misundrestand me, I love this show and have been watching it since it started airing, and I don't plan on droppin' it, either.

I in no way intended to offend you and/or attack anyone for that matter, but if it did seem like that, then I apologize, I'm sorry.

My point was that I don't care about foreshadowing in general and that includes KnY. Because you're never 100% sure what were the author's intentions and I gave the example of Toriyama.

A good set up is more important, imo.

Damn, this episode was totally a masterpiece for me!

Animatian and fight scenes incredible as always!

I am really happy that Tanjirou managed to defeat that twelve kizuna demon, obvious that Tanjirou would not let him get Nazuko, and obvious Tanjirou bond with Nazuko is a thousand time better than that demon!

I loved the flashback about Tanjirous' Father and Mother, his water skils turning into Kagura fire were so awesome, and Nezuko using Blood art to help Tanjirous was just awesome!

looking forward next episodes!

Eh, I'm not offended by people not liking or not understanding the set up of one anime episode.

It's your opinion.

But in my opinion, if the set up was really out of nowhere, the impact that did in anime community wouldn't have been this huge.
Is not just cool animation, they really did their best to not make an extreme info dump but just explain the necessary for the moment to be perfect
And they achieved that.

This is not an "asspull" by any means. nor Deus Ex. You don't need a whole ep of info dump to understand what happened here.

But I guess there's individuals who do need a huge info dump, so it's obvious this was going to happen.
