The Kibutsuji Muzan reveal is rather juicy. Tanjiro is stuck between a rock and a couple of hard places. He now has to take a step back before he attacks and assumingly disables Muzan. Tanjiro also has a wild and rampant demon on the loose that is his responsibility. We are left with quite the cliffhanger this week. I look forward to more Muzan in the next episode.
There's far less action in the episode's second half, which sees the siblings off on their next mission in Asakusa. This is actually a great sequence, giving us a glimpse of Tokyo's metropolis right in the middle of its early 20th-century boom, when the Taisho period's headfirst dive into modernization and Westernization was in full swing. I love that Demon Slayer gets to play around with the visuals and tropes of such a tumultuous time period, where old-fashioned swordsmen like Tanjiro can stand alongside a debonair demon in a three-piece suit and a fedora. Our hero's culture shock makes for some pretty great reaction shots too.
With only five or so minutes left in the episode, I was wondering how Demon Slayer was going to work in the titular Muzan Kubutsuji. The show surprised me yet again by getting right to the point and having Tanjiro literally sniff the guy out, and at first I was disappointed that the show would be so straightforward. Here's the ostensible antagonist of the story, and Demon Slayer is just going to toss him into the final scene of an episode with almost no fanfare? However, the show makes this work when it gives both Tanjiro and the audience a big complicated twist at the heart of Muzan's character. He's got a wife and a daughter, and he's living his life disguised as a human. This isn't some barely functioning bloodsucker like the demons we've met before. If Tanjiro kills Muzan straight away, he'll be doing the exact same thing that Muzan did to him and Nezuko. He'll be destroying a family.
Gyutaro, as portrayed in Demon Slayer: Entertainment District Arc Episode 7, is arguably one of the most dangerous villains in the entire Demon Slayer series so far (with Enmu from the Mugen Train movie holding the number one spot for now). His sickles are downright frightening, and he clearly poses an extreme threat. Thankfully, Tanjiro is reunited with Inosuke and Zenitsu as the bigger battle with Gyutaro comes to a head. It feels like the gang has no chance of helping Uzui defeat Gyutaro, which has me looking forward to the next episode even more.
In this post, we are going to talk about Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba season 1 episode 7 where to watch and spoilers. The previous episode was the first day of work for Tanjiro, and it would be interesting to know how it went for him before going on to talk about the next episode. Hence, spoilers will be everywhere in this article, so be careful if spoilers bother you.
As we know, Tanjiro has completed his training for Demon Slayer, and he will be ready to slay demons actually. Therefore, the last episode actually gave him the opportunity to face the real life situation where someone was abducting girls unexpectedly. He knew that this was connected to a monster, but he did not know that the monster would be the creepiest we had seen on the show.
The show can be watched online as well. However, it depends where you live. Citizens of the US can watch the show on Hulu, which adds new episodes approximately parallel to the broadcast in Japan. The show can be streamed on Crunchyroll as well, which is the global source to watch the show online.
In the seventh episode, we will see Tanjiro being cornered by three demons. He will have no choice but to fight, although he will never be able to win against all of them together. Nonetheless, his sister Nezuko will attack the monsters, and both of them will manage to take the situation under control. While we always saw her as a weak link, she is not what we have been projecting.
