Kimetsu no Yaiba (Blade of demon destruction)
End of episode outro, has jokes, not spoiler of next ep (like HxH)
Animation/art work. Spells, Tanjiros water breathing attacks.
The simple comedy, perhaps a little over the top but my style of humour.
6 and 7
- Bird gives him next mission in Tokyo...
- and he stumbled across Muzan...the smell disorients him.. its the smell of the demon that killed his family.
- Muzan seems vulnerable for a second, Tanjiro stumbles when he sees he has a human kid and wife....but after Muzan see's what Tanjiro is he creates an event by converting an innocent human into a demon with only a scratch to the neck. Really crazy how we saw this guy so quick, better then him being some mythical end of show type character though.
- Tanj's DS uniform can protect him against low level demons
- Urok gives im a light box which is durable for carrying Nezu
- They arrive in town, find a victoms companion, save a girl, and start fighting with the demon of the town, who has split himself into 3. Nezu saves Tanjiro mid fight out of her box, learn thatt Urok put a spell on her to see all humans as family and demons as unforgiveable..wonder if that will backfire.
- Finishes off the fight with the demon, leaves the rescued girl to the heartbroken guy. The demon is scared when Tanj mentions Muzan....
- Kubitsuji escapes , puts out an order tosome of his followers to killed Tanjiro. Also murders some punks in an alley, brutally injecting the female so she disintegrates with his blood....brutal.
- Tanjiro is assisted by a demon doctor who helps him manage the converted demon when police arrive...and he assistant who kinda does not like Nezu/Tanj. They go back to her place and she says how she is trying to create an elixir to save demons.
- The two demons of Mazu find the cloaked home of Mamyo, guy has eyes/trackers in his hand and girl has like magic volleyballs...she seems sadistic.
3 Sabito and Mamiko
- Training montage, 1 year passes with Urokodaki. Tanijro progresses slowly. Final challenge is to slice a boulder. Meets Sabito and Mamiko, who help him train for 6 months. his sis has now been asleep for like 2 years? When he finally bests Sabito, they both disspear but he had cut the boulder. Were they real?
4 Final selection
- Learn that Sabito and Mamiko did die during final selection to the old demon who Oro captured 47 years ago....but they are currently watching over Tanjiro? Westiro are flowers that demons are allergic too?
- Tanjiro takes out a few demons, saves a kid from the big demon, faces his fear, nearly dies but cuts the neck..action was cool. water slice! Shows his potential as Uro's disciple.
5 My Own Steel
- Find out about the four who survive final selection. A meek orange hair kid, gentle girl, angry boy and Tanjiro. They pick their ore for sword, Tanj smells it out and chooses.
- He returns home, weak, to find Nezu moving again. Uro reckons she is sleeping to get energy back rather than eating humans. Uro sheds a tear seeing Tanj back..
- meet sword maker, who is a goof ball, Tanjiro's sword is black! not red..
- He also gets a speaking crow, who delivers orders.
- Meet Tanjiro, show starts off warm...all his siblings, the village. Then the devastation of finding his family murdered by a demon and his sister turned. Demon slayer shows up and changes his mind about killing her after seeing their bond. Action was cool, characters are cool. Show seems like it will live up to its high MAL rating.
- Fight with the two demons, who test the group of 4. They claimed to be of the 12 moon demons, but after being defeated, Mamyo revealed they weren't. and that they had been decieived by the Coward Muzan.
- Nezu steps up in the fight showing she has a lot of strength, but still quite basic. Tanjiro steps up and barely survives against the arrow technique. Mamayo uses her spells to beat the Temero lady..
- They part ways as doc and the assistant leave to go into hiding.
2 Trainer Sakonji Urokodaki
- Meet Sakonji who somewhat saves Tanjiro and Nezu from a demon they have come across
- Giyu sent the two to Sakonji for training, and he tests Tanjiro which he passes easily enough though tires him out. Has same 'sense of smell' so he may become his heir and Demon Slayer.
Meet Zenitsu who is proposing to a girl he found on the road. Enter a demons house when they find some small children outside who said there brother was abducted by the monster who lives there. A random person escaped the house just to die in Tanjiruo's arms :(
- On the mountain..Zintesu has an epic fight, his lightning sleeping mode is powerful. Managed to kill the demon spider, but he himself is poisened with time running down until he is converted into a spider...
- Also get some epic backstory of Zenitsu, his master (gramps) an ex Hashira liek Ukodakari. See how he doesn't believe in himself, and how he is supported and loved by gramps..
- Tanjiro and Inosuke encounter 'father' ..after beating the mother, who had suffered a lot and welcomed death. Mother killed the remaining demon slayers who were alive but in agony...this mountain is creepy af.
18 A Forged bond
- Sheet. Hashira backups showed up. Butterfly girl and Giyu. Butterfly found Zintesu dieing on top of the hut.
- Father spider sent Tanjiro flying into the forest, where he bumped into a brother and sister whom he is fighiting..brother is intense, uses spider web to slice up. Sister seems scared of him.
- Inosuke stuck fighting father, trying to survive. but Father sheds his skin and goes up a level. On verge of dieing after his blades snap while attacking, gets saved, which i kinda expected. Giyu shows up, and very easily destroys the powered up father.
"Some say that your life flashes before your eyes because your mind is trying to find a way to stop your death from happening"
- Animation is so good!
- The little brother turned out to be the twelve kizuki (lwoer five) in the forest...and he was trying to forge a family, force a demon family.
- His threads broke Tanjs sword, and his body is tougher than the threads..
- See Tanjiros father in a lash back, as he faces death, talking about a breathing technique..Kagura..Hinokami Dance Breathing.
- Oh shit. So he goes flame dance, sees the thread. But Nezuko is compelled to wake up, activate her Blood Demon Art which explodes the threads tieing her up and those near Tanjiro, giving himt he opening where his fire blade powers up and cuts through...transitions to an outro of the Kamodo family ..damn first huge oh shit moment.
20 Pretend Family
- Turns out Rui cut his own head off to prevent being slayed...and Tanjiro is totally vulnerable, and Giyu saves his ass too. Damn, they really not on that 12-moon level and Giyu is a boss.
- Shinobi saves a low rank dude from the sister, and takes her out as well.
- Episode is background of Rui, the family and their history...kinda sad.
21-23 Getting off the mountain and Hashira trial
- Everyone from the mountain gets rescued by the Hashira Gyu and Shinobi. Shinobi and her pupil, from the final selection, try to take out Nezu But Giyu saves them. Also get a flash back to Rui's human life, and he shows regret over his actions, and finds love in his parents arms. Really touching stuff, these flash backs are magical.
- At Hasira HQ, meet the team of Hashira and they mostly seem like aggresive immature people, that was my first impression, since they are all baying for killing both Nezu and Tanjiro for their crime of partnering up. Didn't learn all there names, but one in particular tries to antagonise the pair and stabs Nezu repeatedly.
- The master of the demon slayer shows up, a frail looking blind person, assisted by the two small girls from final selection. Gives some background on why Nezu is allowed to travel, and the vouching from Urokudaki and Giyu to committ senpukku should she hurt another human This isn't enough for the aggresive Hashira, and one tries to bait her into attacking. A showing of suppot from Tanjiro and Giyu, a flash back of the Komodo family, and she turns her head in disgust away from the blood. Master encourages Tanjiro and says bring down a 12-moon to gather more crediblity. He leaves motivated.
- Find Zinetsu and Inosku at Shinobi's house undergoing treatment for their battles on mountain. Zin has small arms as he is recovering from his spider transofmration. Inosku seems down in spirits after realising he is weak, and his voice seems gone due to injury, to Zin's enjoyment. Zin is laughably crazy, worried. It's comedy, but i also feel bad for him. Damn I caught up to the show.
