They took such a deep dive into Muichiro's character this epsiode/arc that it felt like he became a main protagonist. It's great that he also found some peace and received that sword. About time really.

Elsewhere, Tanjirou still fought with heart and guts in that battle. Mitsuri deserved some credit for her efforts as well and I love her level of confidence. She's really improved this season.

Muichiro was so funny to me in this episode. Him not reacting to anything was funny. LOL. But, with some cool action, Muichiro finally slayed his opponent. He was looking so out of touch today. No wonder, he got taken down so quickly.

On the other hand, Tanjiro and others were trying their best to keep up but it was not looking very good for them. Tanjiro got very lucky that Mitsuri came to his rescue. But, now that she's here, it's time to see how she handles things. The CG elements were interesting once again.

We were fighting demons but then all of a sudden it somehow turned up into a roasting competition, though Muichiro was having an upper hand there too. Needless to say, it didn’t sit right with that demon dweeb and then in an attempt to best his opponent, he transformed.. what form you ask? Aquaman, except the face.

Liked whatever Ufotable did with the representation of mist breathing. As this was that episode where Muichiro dealt the final blow to Gyokko, seeing the seventh form was a treat. Finally that’s all it took to put Gyokko down, quite too easy yeah. I mean Muichiro was alone plus gravely injured, but still took the upper five down lol. And it took those many when we were against the upper six.

I don’t trust the power levels in this series but just leave it be, I mean it was animated fabulously, so it works right??? Shifting focus back to Tanjiro and co. against Hantegu, they’re STILL struggling, but hey Mitsuri is finally here. Kinda forgot we had another hashira, so yeah her appearance helped. 

Kind of a miss season so far honestly but atleast the next two episodes are going to be big.

Who would have thought that Mitsuri was the actual MVP for those two seconds in which she appeared in an episode titled after another character.

Most disappointing episode of the season so far for me. They really did Muichiro dirty, at least he was pretty funny this episode not gonna lie. Gyokko was as easily provocated as he died. Man, I was hoping they would extend the fight from the manga, but somehow it was as bad. Animation was also very lackluster. Guess we got the best Muichiro sequence from the last few minutes of the last episode. Truly didn’t live up to the hype.

Pretty bad episode.
Forgetting that, we’re back to the main fight. I’m just here for the final episode directed by Shirai.
Mitsuri please, for the love of god, save this season.

Definitely an underwhelming fight when it comes to the general standards of what we would expect from an Upper Moon fight. Rengoku vs. Akaza was cinema. Tengen and the boys vs. Gyutaro and Daki went crazy. This, on the other hand, felt like more of a general demon fight rather than a fight against one of the 6 strongest demons in the series. As usual it was visually appealing but this would have been a moment of the season that actually would have benefitted from being stretched out, not the backstories lol. If they can find a way to add content to flashbacks, they're more than capable of doing that for fights. Well whatever, it's been said plenty of times that this is generally considered the weakest DS arc with the least interesting UMs, so it is what it is. Goodbye, Gyokko. Rest in piss.

Last few minutes cut back to the fight against Zohakuten, and bae showed up to save the day last second. Loved seeing how nimble and acrobatic she is when she runs around, hopefully these upcoming episodes will bring some redemption.

Muichiro is such a good kid until he gets into his beast mode and becomes a total brat. I mean, to be fair Gyokko showed some patience there and it was a bit funny when Muichiro literally said nothing :D.

Also his mist breathing might be my favourite breathing technique.

Mitsuri was so beautiful while nonchalantly flying and slashing off the monster!

Muichiro is so funny now lol. He's regained his old self and his personality's no longer cold and empty. But man, that Rengoku moment and then Muichiro remembering his family. It was sad and happy at the same time. It just made Muichiro feel so human.

And finally Mitsuri has arrived. What an entrance by her. She seems really warm. She reminds me a lot of Rengoku and her musical theme gives off this feeling of hope. I can't wait to see more of her.

This ep was more on the okayish side after what we expected after the previous episode,... I mean ok I understand they wanted to show how good Muichiro is but still, they could've extended the fight a bit more.
I had the most hope from this ep till now in KNY after the directors said this season's animation will be better than the previous ones, which is but we are watching KYS for battle if we are just interested in awesome backstories then there are tons of anime which we can watch.
Well, that is what I think the second main fight of this season has begun let's see what they'll do.

I've been waiting for the Gyokko roasting session to be animated! I'm glad Muichirou got all of his emotions outside of anger back. Contrary to his first reaction to Rengoku's death, he seemed to actually have formed a bond with him and misses him.
And FINALLY, Kanroji appears to take care of Zouhakuten, meaning the next episodes will be focused on her sheer strength as a Hashira. She seems to be the only one in the swordsmith village who could deal with Upper 4. Can't wait to see more of her love breathing techniques.

Whoa, Muichiro did a nice provokation. He has become talkative. I like this side of him. Damn, that smug face and that dialogue hit hard. I'd like to describe Muichiro chopping Gyokko's head as minced meat. 

That was Rengoku's sword guard. While Nezuko was shocked when she saw Tanjiro being swallowed, her expression turned into a damsel in distress at the sight of Kanroji Mitsuri.

Kinda disappointed to see that tanjirou don't use water breathing anymore, cause those looked cooler than sun breathing. Might see some tomioka action in the future seasons probably? Then I can have my hunger for water breathing being finally satisfied.

Yes this is quite possibly the worst upper moon fight but I must say Ufotable did an excellent job on this one. Upper 5 and his fight wasn't anything special at all in the manga but they at least made it a bit relevant in the anime. Now for the main fight of the season. Next two episodes will be the real highlight of the season.
If you enjoyed the time you wasted, then its not a waste of time.

Pretty good episode. I loved Muichiro's sassiness and Mitsuri's confidence of fighting upper 4. As always amazing coreography and animation, especially at Muichiro's mist and Mitsuri's sword whipping. Muichiro finally getting closure after his past was nice and all.
One think I didn't like was how underwhelming Gyokko was. That's what I call waste of a character. He didn't do anything spectacular or amazing as Akaza and Daki and Gyutaro🫤

It’s sad how pathetic and cringy people are. Guess it’s too much for people to understand that not every fight has the hero as the underdog where it’s this long grueling fight. Muichiro straight up outclassed Upper 5 once the handicaps were gone and went to business. That’s one of the top 3 there people. MVP Muichiro for this season.

Fish demon really is having his fill in surprises from Tokito for sure. Never thought i'll see Tokito taunt someone though. Back then it was a miracle that Amane and co were able to arrive in time to save him. Even for him though that was one hell of an effort that he put in to finally kill that demon. Mitsuri sure took her time but its nice to finally see her make her long awaited entrance in the fight against the upper ranks. Her sword really has quite the unique structure though thats for sure.

Not gonna lie. Upper 5 demon was pretty disappointing. I hope no one is mad at me for saying that. I think Gyutaro would’ve been more of the guy being upper 5 than 6 if anything. Muichiro literally had that mark almost like Tanjiro and went all out on that Upper 5, and later easily defeating him. But somehow put him out of commission funnily. As for Tanjiro and th others. Oh dear. And now Kanroji shows up to help/save them. Oh yeah! X3

Upper Demons are beings that have lived for centuries, the strongest soldiers of the Japanese Michael Jackson. They have killed hundreds of Hashira and have never been defeated in battle before. But it seems that after one of them died, the others lost their motivation to live, because now Number 4 can't even kill two kids, and Number 5 died without putting up a fight against a single Hashira.
I try to give credit, but it's just not possible.
At least this Number 5 demon died quickly. They are simply the most unbearable character since Zenitsu and Pig-Head.

If Gyokko is really dead (well it looks like) then is quite strange that he go down in 1 vs. 1. It's not that I mad or something, but killing Gyoutaro/Daki took way more effort. I know that Mist Hashira is really strong and he's got some "ancestor blood" like tanjiro, but still Gyokko death was rather anticlimatic. Stiill, great animation and music. :)

It will be explained why muichiro is so fucking strong. Rengoku was unlucky to go up against akaza one of the strongest demons. Tengen is nothing compared to muichiro in this point in the story. Also gyokko is not a fighter like gyutaro. Gyokko is more like a trickster. Muichiro almost died if Kotetsu didnt save him in episode 7.

I'M JUST GOING CRAZZZYYYYYY AFTER WATCHING THIS EPISODE.

I am obsessed such a wonderful episode it is. I may be OVERHYPING but it is the best episode in the season or maybe series so farr!!!
MUICHIRO's humour, speed and versatility had carried the episode in the first half. And I am so glad that I haven't read the manga so it's just amazing for me.
And in the second half of the episode, MITSURI KANROJI has carried it all. She was just so cute and versatile in the episode [Ok I am overacting]
Also that Zenitsu and Inosuke in the extreme end if the episode were just so surprising.

Now that the next episode is "Mitsuri Kanroji The Love Hashira" , I JUST CAN'T WAIT FOR SUNDAY!!!

So ufotable missed an opportunity to add Gyokko's backstory to this show, sticking with the "safe and faithful adaptation of the manga" approach. What a shame. Too bad over 9000 Muichiro's flashbacks were good enough to be included in the show.

Pretty boring episode that has somehow made the scene with Gyokko arguing with Muichiro look more cheesy and cringey than it looked like in the manga.

Mitsuri's entrance was epic. Huge shoujo energy in a shounen show, given justice by coating it in very good looking animation. Can't wait to see her fighting against Zohakuten.

Muichiro smoking that Gyokko pack!! Great episode seeing Muichiro handle business after he's gotten his full memories back. The kid absolutely getting underneath Gyokko skin with his attitude and taunting. Muichiro totally not letting any emotion show when Gyokko would boast and expect praise. The perfect way to unravel someone so prideful is to not give them any acknowledgment. Muichiro played it perfectly letting Gyokko undo himself. Drawing out that ultimate form Gyokko has, A fish snake weird combination. Looking very silky and shiny in that form, Gyokko unleashing some wild attacks. Animation looked great as Muichiro evaded them all and Gyokko sent those thousands of poisonous slime fish flying at Muichiro. The Hashira making quick work of Gyokko sliding his head off as he emerged from the fog. Not letting Gyokko spout any nonsense so glad that Muichiro chopped his head up, no sad backstory for this demon. Very glad to see Kotetsu alive despite his wounds. The Rengoku hit that Tanjiro gave Kotetsu to hold saving his life. Cutting back to the upper moon four fight where Tanjiro is not looking good. Tanjiro, Nezuko and Genya all being overwhelmed by the power of these giants wooden dragons. Upping the power of each emotion demon from before to crazy levels. Tanjiro on the verge even swallowed up by one of the dragons until Mitsuri comes in clutch with the save!! Made me so excited seeing her join this fight! I love her character so much its gonna great having another Hashira join and help end this!

In which way? Fighting choreography, direction, dialogue between two fighters?

But yeah, even though Gyokko's final form looked sick in how crazy his movements were, I think this fight can be a serious contender to be the worst so far from all fights where any Pillar was involved.

As much as I liked Muichiro's interactions with Gyokko this episode, I kinda feel like the Upper Six seem a whole lot less threatening this season. Compared to how difficult the battle against Daki and Gyutaro was last season, where it took Uzui plus the whole main cast nearly dying just to beat them, Gyokko kind of just went down like a chump after Muichiro got his power-up. Although his split forms seemed fairly weak, I'm hoping Hantengu doesn't go down nearly as easily now that Kanroji is on the scene.

he is definitely not a main protag because it is the same thing they did for tengen. Muichiro will be a supporting character for the rest of the show, I can tell. Sorry to break it to you
