Nice episode. Tanjiro is reunited with Zenitsu and Inosuke at last. But they didn't leave with some serious injuries.
Also interested in that Kanao girl. Possible romantic intrest for Tanjiro in the future?

So....that went down. Nezuko is the kawaii protecc girl as always. Skipping through all that stuff that went down...I just have one question: Are we going to conveniently forget that Tanjiro saw Muzan with an actual family? Because...ya know...instead of belittling and beating on the kid, the moment that shit was made known...this little trial should have been sidelined so he can give them information.
Don't believe the hype.

THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
I thought reading the manga ahead thus knowing what happens would have a negative effect but that didnt happen, ep was still hype.
Tanjiro still wanting payback for what Sanemi did. Things would have escalated to worst if they butt heads again. Had a good laugh when Tanjiro came running back in lol also Kanao is one strange girl.
Anywhow with that being said. 3 more eps left.

as soon as I read your name the opening from wolf´s rain stared to play in my head and now I have to listen to it.

Thank god that trial wasn't as devastating as it could've been... i don't think my heart could deal with something bad happening to the Kamado siblings!

Tanjiro, Zenitsu & Inosuke are fucking friendship goals! I can't believe how much Inosuke has changed already since we first saw him and it's so awesome that Zenitsu & Tanjiro are there to support him.

I'm really looking forward to seeing more of the Hashiras... i have a feeling they're going to be AWESOME

Just another chill episode, still liked it anyways.

Every episode feels like 5 mins, this is the only show I really look forward to watch currently. Sad that we only have 3 episodes left...

Man, this episode was some comedy gold:

- Nezuko pouting in the box
- Love pillar (forgot her name) trying her best not to laugh
- Tanjirou wanted to head-butt the wind guy again. It's OK, Tanjirou, we all did...
- Those two "paramedics" carrying Tanjiro away and yelling at him at the same time
- Kanao just standing there and staring when asked whether they could come in
- Zenitsu's arms all shrunk
- Inosuke deep voice
- Inosuke being depressed and Zenitsu making fun of him

It was good to get the gang back again, I guess they have not been together since episode 15.

The pillars are definitely very interesting, especially the love pillar and the sound dude. The snake guy is also pretty interesting - he reminds me of Feitan from HxH a little bit. The scene where he was holding down Tanjiro was very similar to a scene where Feitan was holding down Gon in their hideout.

Nezuko did her best to resist Sanemi's blood. They are in the clear for now. Gotta love that, eventho Tanjiro is (to put it lightly) injured, but still runs back for wanting to give Sanemi more headbutts. He's fearless..

Do have to say that, the Hashira's are not really giving me the impression of being nice people or easy to get along with. Exceptions are there ofcourse, but I will happily wait the day to find out if they can actually be nice or not.

Kanao sure gave us the dead silent treatment... Strange girl.

Also Zenitsu and Inosuke are also back on screen, Zenitsu hasn't changed one bit.. even after that near death experience. You would almost say he has gotten worse from that XD
These girls are BEYOND precious!

Nezuko managed to pass the test imposed by Sanemi, being ridiculed by the demon he mistreated.

Tanjirou could not bear to see his younger sister suffer and frees himself from his bond and Iguro to support Nezuko.
I must say that I was impressed when they showed us Nezuko's thoughts and memories while she resisted attacking Sanemi, we were able to know the effect of the hypnosis that Urokodaki used in Nezuko and more than anything we could hear Nezuko and see her without the muzzle , she really is a beauty.

Ubuyashiki expects great things from Tanjirou and Nezuko so that they can gain the confidence of the pillars and now the mission of the siblings is to defeat the twelve demonic moons, a mission quite unfair in my opinion

Shinobu and Mitsuri laughing was something too beautiful to see and hear, especially the adorable Mitsuri who endured the desire to laugh, it is really a pleasure to hear Kana and Saori making the voices of both female pillars.
Damn ... Angry Nezuko in the box was so cute and funny to see, the same when they were going to take Nezuko to Shinobu's house.
Ubuyashiki sent greetings to Tamayo after saying goodbye to Tanjirou, that means that the leader of the demon slayers met her in the past, but was it before or after she became a demon?

I had forgotten that Kanao was an apprentice of Shinobu, she is also very beautiful and has a purified and peaceful smile, although she is a bit strange, why did she not speak ?, I wanted to hear the voice of Reina.
A new girl made her appearance, Aoi is the nurse in charge of taking care of the annoying Zenitsu and a very calm Inosuke, I really missed Zenitsu and his lollipops, he always managed to make me laugh a lot.
Sleepy Nezuko in the floor was damn adorable, she had many moments when she stood out in this episode and the effort is appreciated.

It was rare to see most of the pillars behave politely in the meeting with Ubuyashiki, at least they are respectful when it should be.

Anyway, Tanjirou and Nezuko are safe for now, but under observation and also the pillars distrust Nezuko even though Ubuyashiki told them they had to respect his decision, now we only have to wait how long it will take Tanjirou and his friends to recover.

Is it my imagination or is the male Kakushi VA the one who makes the voice of Saitama?

i don't know what to think about the pillars, i mean there is not one "normal" person in there! shinazugawa being an ass for treating innocent nezuko like that (tanjirou has to punish him!!) and that snake guy.. throughout history snakes representing the evil, that guy must be evil. nice character design though, with the bandages and the heterochromia.

Yes, that's what comedy is and you should already know comedy is completely subjective. You hate it, others like it and that's pretty much it.


I wonder why stark don't reply to nobody tho?

Much likely within the next two years. I don't think they'll stop here considering the amount of success the anime is getting right now.

She's serious later on even tho she doesn't have that much of a screentime to begin with. Also, she joined the demon slayer corps just to find a husbando and live a happy life, i might have an idea with whom she'll end up, unless one of these two dies first to which much likely will happen. It's not a spoiler, just a speculation tho.

Tanjirou and Kanao shippers are going to have a blast seeing this scene


That said, as a manga reader I am so glad they add things that not in the manga. Also the Hashira/Pillars are acknowledging Tanjirou's Prowess. That's nice to know
Nezuko are saying something again. Her voice actress are very good in here. Sanemi might not like it, but she finally endured his own blood. That needs extra dedication there

Zenitsu are noisy as always but Inosuke are quiet because he is not strong enough. Quite a character development there. Tanjirou are having intimate talk with Nezuko are quite a scene to behold

The episode felt short for some reason.
I am looking forward to seeing the Hashira defeating Muzan.
Kagaya seems like a very calm person. I wanna see more of him.
Zenitsu is annoying. Yelling and making a fuss about anything.
Poor Inosuke, he appears to have lost his voice.

I hope this anime gets a second season. We need to see more!

The scene that showed Nezuko's deceased siblings as well as the voice over from the mentor really matched well with the music while providing an excellent representation of her core focus presently. At the same time it provided the proof that the master needed to permit a change within the ranks too. Its nice that we finally got formally introduced to Kanao. So she was trained by Shinobu herself huh. Its nice that both Zenetsu and Inosuke managed to survive their respective battles. Though both sure suffered heavy mental damage. The heart to heart between Tanjirou and Nezuko sure was nice. The hashira meeting through sure brought grim news. With the increasing threat of the demons combined with the massive losses suffered by the corps they sure are in quite the spot. Overall an excellent ep that while showing just how much Nezuko's learned so far in her journey while also showing just far sighted the master was as well in finding ways to strengthen the corps.

These episodes seem to go by very quickly and I knew Nezuko was not going to take the bait with the wind pillar's blood thanks to the spell that was placed on her. The master said that this is the finest group of Demon Slayers since the feudal era so I wonder how old he is.

Somewhat underwhelming episode, though I suppose a respite from the recent intensity was necessary. I still dislike how annoying and loud Zenitsu is.

Well Nezuko proved that she won't attack humans, that's nice. Nezuko's reaction in the manga is honestly cuter than in the anime but that's fine. The master is really a mysterious person; I wonder who he is

Man, I forgot how negative a light this arc put the pillars in. Almost all of them came of as petulant and self important. None of them got punished for outright disobeying when they were bitching about similar things at times.

Sunlight must have poured through the three or so holes made in Nezuko's container by that one Hashira and she should have died.

0/5

But for real though, these episodes after that 3 min orgasm have been pretty bad. Shitty obnoxious Hashiras man, already hating all of them especially that poison lady. Also, hope that the fkin yellow haired all-the-time-yelling kid and the boar headed kid, both die.

3/5

I also feel like that the "master" is actually Michael Jackson.

Only three more episodes left. If they ever come out with a second season, it's probably coming out next year or in 2021.

As usual, Nezuko was adorable fuming with rage in her chibi form inside her own little box. She's just so fucking cute.

That part of Tanirou running back because he wanted to slug Sanemi was hilarious. He is a big brother and takes pride in both being an elder brother and a man. He wouldn't stop at a headbutt, no, he's fucking pulverize Sanemi if he could.

I was not disappointed with Inosuke's crushed voice. I always re-read that scene in the manga and wondered what his Anime counterpart would sound like. And of course, the return of Zenitsu, complaining about life as usual.

im glad they added the anime original scene of tanjirou getting nezuko her own room. while reading the corresponding chapter i'd wondered where the hell nezuko was, cause she didn't show up again after her confrontation with that grey haired dude. good to know she has a room to sleep. but... when she fell asleep on the ground.... why didn't tanjirou carry her onto the bed!???

at first i really liked zenitsu and i think his yelling is kinda funny but this eps the comedy that completely focused on him yelling feels kinda forced and annoying. like, i don't find it funny. manga readers all say he gets a lot better later on. i hope it's soon cause if the comedy of this series continues to be forced like this i might drop this series after this season. the plot is average so far and the characters that i actually care about are only Nezuko and Inosuke. All the others are kinda bland and not to my taste. the only thing that really makes this series shine is the animation. to me, it's just another shounen, nothing really makes it stand out and special and engaging and makes you want to keep watching (like HxH).

Hope it gets better

Loved the OST used during Nezuko's flashback. As someone said, it's indeed a quite powerful piece.

Another great episode. I'm really happy to see Tanjirou, Zenitsu and Inosuke being together again. Inosuke seems to be feeling quite depressed though... I wonder if it will have some major impact in the story later on. I honestly hope it does since some nice character development would be really welcome for him.

Three more episodes to go.

It's not the matter of should or shouldn't, it's just in the very next arc there are multiple depressed moments and reading it and watching it afterwards would make you feel sad twice. If you are impatient, then read it.

Tanjiro being corny and making a fool about defeating Kibutsuji is like seeing Takumi from Shokugeki no Souma again lol

That's the kind of comedy that DOES work, not yelling 90% of the time

Really good episode, best scene is the last one with Tanjirou talking to Nezuko in that room

I also love Zenitsu, I don't get the hate, the yelling is pretty funny (even though Inosuke's whole character is on a whole other level of funny)

Nezuko turning away was satisfying to see.

The rest of the episode was hilarious.

Tanjiro demanding that he headbutts the scarred guy was amazing lol

Those Kakushi are way funnier than what you’d expect from nameless fodder characters.

Zenitsu is the worst kind of patient. It’s amazing that they haven’t just kicked him out.

Episode was going fine and dandy until I started having my ears ass-raped by you know who already, apart from that annoying character I liked the comedy from the other characters, specially Kanao, her scenes being silent when the other girl was asking her questions was funny and cute. I'm liking that girl A LOT already, too bad this season doesn't have much of her.

Finally, the boar mask guy calmed down with the yelling, he should stay depressed for the rest of the anime. And for the rest of the pillars, I dislike most of them but I know that they will have their moments and after that I may start liking them but they didn't left a good impression on me for now.
