The flashback made no sense since the story was concluded and we did not need another backstory to that dead demon
This anime is so inconsistent with the characters ... so first of all gyuu is meant to be some sort of badass so they copy levi from attack on titan which is not a bad thing if he plays his part well which he did till now...he steps on that demon saying you should not have mercy for demons and tanjiro like the kind hearted nonce he is gets pissed (this was good)
But then shinobu comes and starts dissing him and he seems to give a shit and is visibly offensed by a childish insult..i mean you ruined his whole character in a few seconds
Not only someone who was supossed to be the badass should never be dissed cause people are afraid of him (like with levi) but when someone does that they should never be impressed
The anime is good but damn the characters are so inconsistent


It not inconsistent cause Giyuu not really like Levi. Despite him appeal to be cool and emotionless, Giyuu, like most characters in this series isn't defined by their first impression.


Well Levi and Giyu are both stoic but not the same but similiar but also different. Levi is more stoic than giyu and ruder. They are both from point view of people e motionless,calm and collected and very powerful. While Levi still doesn t show much emotion even in later arc but Giyu does even for me Giyu showing his emotion wasn t that much either. They are similiar but not the same.

They are both stoic, very ruthless their enemies,zero social skills and they both harsh look at Giyu gaiden giyu social skills is garbage and Levi is terrible as well in social skills. They have a lot in common but not the same. They are both calm and emotionless levi is more soo.

Giyu and levi are very similiar but differents are Giyu has comedic moments,Levi is more ruder and harsher,Giyu is more emotional they are both unfriendly levi far more. Other than this personality is very similiar to point its nearly the same with few differents I can name one more different that would be spoiler from Giyu part. Plus Giyu can try to be friendly to people at some rare occasions and can be a quite moron as well unlike Levi.

Giyu has only seven different aspect of his personality than Levi. Other than that they are very similiar to point it nearly the same.

I know because I read both manga to latest chapters

Is this trial a big thing?
Is it important to the story?

Well for starters, a demon slayer protecting a demon is basically unheard of before. The pillars will never trust a demon, so they need some kind of assurance/proof that Nezuko will not harm any human.

Yes the next episode is the most important one. The trial sets the beginning to Tanjirou’s real journey. The Natagumi Mountain Arc was still a kind of “prologue”. From here on, we are out of it.
The Pillars (hashiras) are what makes Kimetsu no Yaiba the most enjoyable shounen. Unfortunately, we won’t get to know them properly this season

I've seen some mentioned this Demon Training Arc, which they hoped to be the end of this season

Then I suppose they will choose to trust Nezuko(well obviously she won't be killed) and they will train her?
This is a spoiler,but I'm still curious, so use spoiler tag when answering please!

That's not demon training arc, but Demon train arc, people call it demon train arc because the battle take place in a train. Not about demon training.

Nice to see Rui's backstory, and guess what we feel bad for the demons again. Nezuko chasing part was cute, like always. I hope we can get longer time for the Hashiras at the last part.

Basically what Jfs_ have said.

I don't think they would adapt that arc in this season, since there's a short recovery arc for our main trio after the trial.

Here is a fun question for the anime-only friends: can you guess who is the strongest among these Hashira based on impression alone? The true answer might surprise you A LOT XD


I'm going to go with the kid that is standing next to Shinobu. The guy with the fiery hairstyle looks like a complete badass.

Why is this anime so fucking slow? Literally almost nothing happened on this episode. There's no need to expand on the demons backstory that much, it wastes a lot of time, Spidermom's backstory was shorter and it was easier to sympathize with her. Can't say the same for the rest of this "Family"

It does not help either that Shinobu keeps triggering Giyuu while not letting Tanjiro or Giyuu explain themselves. All that time wasted served nothing because in the end they'd be taking Tanjiro and Nezuko to the pillars anyway.


Things are slow because the studio stretching them too much. In the manga, the pacing is better and things happen very fast. Pacing is one thing that is better in the manga. The fight with Rui and his backstory only happen in a couples of chapters but the studio extended them for 3-4 episodes. Rui's backstory should have been done last episode already.
The backstories are the best things about this show. They show that demons are once humans too. Without those backstories, the villains would become shallow and not memorable. It would just become fight after fight with fodders that we can't even remember their faces. The show will have no depth at all and will be boring as hell.
Like those villains in Dragon Ball, in the end, the ones fans remember the most are the ones with their backstory showed.
KnY currently is one of the most popular manga in Shounen Jump so the author must have done something right.


I'm not against of having backstories for the villains, I like when they want to redeem them. But the pacing on this anime makes it quite unbearable, I want them to move on already, we've been with these spider demons for about 6 episodes when it could have been simplified to 4. And tbf, out of all demons shown so far, I've only felt bad for drum demon and spider mom.

It's also very ambitious to try and humanize every single villain by redeeming them and it wont always work that well, there's also many other ways to make characters memorable than just adding a backstory when they are about to die.
If you find yourself disagreeing, please, don't do the following:

1. Call out on some superiority complex.
2. Rely on "If you don't like then don't watch it" in an attempt to defend your statements
3. Resorting to insults.

What is this fucking anime trying to do to me?! My emotions were more tangled than my headphones! I just barely managed not to try at Rui's backstory & death.

Then there was the tension... holy god, that shit had me shooketh af. I'm gonna have mad anxiety about next weeks episode till Saturday! Also i can feel a cliffhanger ending coming at the end of the season

Another sweet demon back story. I just love Tanjiro man. He's just too endearing. I'm really happy the other Hashira (or whatever) guy actually remembered and protected Tanjiro and Nezuko. It's probably gonna take a bit of frigging around to get Nezuko in the clear.

WTF Rui's sad backstory was 3 episodes late, this episode should have been Tanjiro being on trial, where he has a lotta explaining to do as to why he has Nezuko being a demon.

Good episode! They showed the story of the demon of the 12 Demon Moons, it was a bit sad, I admit it. Tanjiro showed compassion for those demons who suffer and repent. Tomioka protected Nezuko and Tanjiro from Kocho's attacks, violating some rules of demon slayers, what a great man. I thought I would see a great fight between Tomioka and Kocho. Luckily, the crows arrived with the message of the Association, which saved the situation.
Wow! I didn't think I saw all the pillars assembled so soon. It was amazing! What a great end of the episode.
The arch of Natagumo Mountain is over, it was really amazing, it was full of surprises and one of the most epic moments I've seen this year. It was an arduous and difficult battle, but they succeeded.

Ps: It was very funny and cuddly to see Nezuko run away from the demon slayer as a child, LOL.

Like Episode 20, another solid episode. Gave it a 4/5.

Kanao looks like a younger Shinobu, but it was good to see her being introduced here after last seeing her at the final selection. Shinobu's still best girl.

I'm surprised that quite a few people didn't like Rui's backstory

In my opinion that's the best part of the episode(right after our lord and saviour Nezuko running of course), I think it was beautiful, and the soundtracks during it were perfect

And when Rui finally reunited with his parents, with that innocent look on his face, that was so emotional, I actually started tearing up, especially with that soundtrack in the background, it was so beautiful, but really sad at the same time!

Honestly out of all anime I've seen this year(not just seasonal ones), this is the only one that could make me tear up so far

This anime really just reminds me with each episode why I love it so much
No other ones can make you actually feel sad for someone who's supposed to be a bad character
I've been watching it since episode 1, and there's not a single one I haven't watched at least twice(literally)!

Again, I'm not against having backstories on villains, the problem is how much time they spend on it. Out of all the demons on this arc, I only cared about spider mom which was the shortest backstory of them all and was enough to make me feel bad for her, everyone else's felt way too long and were added way too late for me to care about them. (Specially Rui)

My complaint is that barely anything relevant happened on this episode, which is why I say this anime feels way too slow. There was time wasted between Giyuu and Shinobu that added nothing but forced comedy that in the end served no purpose. The only relevant thing on this episode was that Tanjiro and Nezuko were being seized and taken to the pillars, and that happened right at the end.

They waited until the last possible moment to give us Rui's full backstory, and in a shocking turn of events, it was sad.

Mini Nezuko was adorable. I had no idea she had "shrinking" in her arsenal.


You completely missed that at the start of the anime. That is how Nezuko fits in the box. Her normal size would be too big for it, so Tanjiro asked her if she could shrink to fit in, and so she did.

The banter between Shinobu and Giyu was hilarious

Wow, uh that episode was like half awful.

Not only is it a waste of time to give us Rui's backstory now that he is dead but it's also just a waste period. He wasn't a compelling villain before or after it and it feels bad to try and redeem him in the end after all the awful shit he did by just handwaving it away with "bad stuff happened when he was a kid"

Middle part was good though. Everything with Tomioka and Kocho is great.

The other Hashira though at the end. BIG FREAKIN OOF. 4 out of 5 of them have some god awful character designs.


I think you miss the point. It not about forgive and redeem him. it to show how he get to this point. The series never use the demon past as an excuse for their action. Tanjirou just doesn't share the view that demon are monster but instead to him it a miserable existence.

Uh no. His hair reverting to normal and his parents spirits accepting him into heaven with them was clearly trying to present him as being redeemed.

accepting him into heaven? Dude his father clearly said "we'll going together even if it's to hell". So no one mentioned heaven in this episode.

No it doesn't. It showed that he remembered what he wanted all along and it was his family. Rui is even aware that he'll probably go to hell for his actions. His final moments was a mental image of his desire. The show isn't even forgiving of demons. Tanjiro is fully aware of his responsibilities as a demon slayer but it doesn't erase the fact that they were still humans preyed by Muzan during their lowest times.

Rui's character arc was never about redemption. He already admitted as much when he said he was going to hell, regardless, because he had killed so many people.

However, he had spent his entire demon life trying, and failing, to recreate the bonds that he had once shared with a family that he'd slaughtered, so expected to die alone. The fact that his family appeared and were willing to go to hell with him, despite everything he had done to them, demonstrates that familial bonds are closer and more concrete than some arbitrary pact made with all the randoms he had met whilst he was alive.

Never knew heaven looked this ominous before.
not to mention his parents literally saying "We'll be together even in hell" wasnt obvious enough that they're all going to hell.

Have you noticed? The last guy that was telling Tanjiro to wake up sounds like he is voiced by the same VA as saitama


Good ear. I heard that too. Apparently, he first said something in ep.19 as '陰', and then here as '隠', which seem to be one the 'kakushi'. Didn't notice in 19 though.
