Demon Slayer: Entertainment District Arc - Tanjiro.


A demon slayer has disappeared and thus, you know that danger is lurking nearby. How the other demon slayers deal with the situation becomes interesting to watch.


Inosuke's conversation with Tanjiro is quite interesting since they both are contrasting personalities. Tanjiro's blank expressions which Inosuke being his overly-passionate self makes for quite a watch.

Soon, we are introduced to Tengen Uzui again, this time a smarter and passionate one. An aspect of him is introduced which is quite cool. In fact, this time around, Uzui's character only grows with every scene. Even Inosuke appreciates him, which should be proof enough to know he has grown, at least for this episode.

A very tragic incident takes place and even though it is painful, there's still some hope. More is explored about it in the episode itself.

Tanjiro's past fears come back and alive. He is almost living a nightmare after the Mugen Train incident and fighting the spider demon Rui. Something on that lines is explored in the episode. In that aspect, this episode touches all the right nerves.

Demon Slayer: Entertainment District Arc.

The episode sees the group face a real danger. It leaves us with a gutsy guy who has no choice but to face a scary situation alone. The post-credit scene, though, brings back Uzui's irritating side and thus, that can and should be skipped this time around. The scene does not add much to the story anyway.


The episode is also a recommended watch since it has the right amount of humour and thrill combined in one. Tengen Uzui grows as a person and is more determined in the episode. It is a side of him that we have been waiting to see and it's finally here! So, go ahead and watch this episode if you have followed the series already.
