List of episodes of the first season (2019)

Episode 1: Cruelty

Tanjiro Kamado is a happy teenager who returns home one day to find his widowed mother, three younger brothers, and one younger sister murdered, with the exception of another younger sister, Nezuko, who has been transformed into a demon. A demon slayer named Giyu Tomioka arrives and tries to behead Nezuko, but Tanjiro saves her and promises to transform her back into a human. After being impressed by Tanjiro’s wit and Nezuko’s strong desire to protect her brother despite his transformation, Giyu decides to let the siblings go, sending them to see a man named Sakonji Urokodaki on Mount Sagiri and warning Tanjiro to keep his sister out of the sun. The siblings bury their relatives and leave together.

Episode 2: Urokodaki Sakonji, the trainer

During the day, Tanjiro continues his journey to Mount Sagiri, carrying Nezuko in a dressed straw basket on his back. They are attacked by another demon along the way, which they manage to defeat on their own. Sakonji Urokodaki then appears and orders Tanjiro to kill him, but Tanjiro waits until dawn, when the demon is reduced to ashes by the sunlight. Despite his fears that Tanjiro’s kindness and lack of resolve will lead to his defeat against the demons, Urokodaki transports him and Nezuko to Mount Sagiri, where he leaves Nezuko sleeping in his cabin and transports Tanjiro to the summit, instructing him to return at daybreak to see if he is fit to become a demon hunter. Despite the traps and the thin mountain air, Tanjiro is able to use his sense of smell to detect the traps’ scent and avoid most of them, allowing him to return just in time. Urokodaki recalls Giyu’s request to train the siblings in a letter and accepts Tanjiro as a disciple.

Episode 3: Sabito and Makomo

Tanjiro works with Urokodaki for the next year and a half, improving his physical form and learning to use a special breathing technique called Total Concentration to increase his stamina and speed. One day, Urokodaki declares that if Tanjiro can slice through a rock with his sword, he will allow him to compete in the Demon Slayer Corps’ Final Selection, a survival test that will determine who will become a Demon Hunter. For the next six months, Tanjiro tries and fails, while Nezuko continues to sleep. Concern for Nezuko and her continued failures leads Tanjiro to give up until he is confronted by Sabito and Makomo, two children dressed in fox masks. Sabito begins by knocking out Tanjiro, chastising him for not incorporating Urokodaki’s moves into his body and offering to help him train by sparring, while Makomo patiently teaches and hones Tanjiro’s skills each time he wakes up. Makomo reveals that they were both raised by Urokodaki as orphans. After another six months, Tanjiro’s blade finally slashes Sabito’s mask in half during a match. The adoptive siblings disappear with a smile. Tanjiro realizes that instead of slicing Sabito’s mask, his sword split the rock in half. Makomo reveals that they were both raised by Urokodaki as orphans. After another six months, Tanjiro’s blade finally slashes Sabito’s mask in half during a match.

Episode 4: The Final Selection

Tanjiro departs for the Final Selection after two years since Nezuko’s transformation. Urokodaki warns him that a demon’s strength is proportional to the number of humans he has eaten, and he offers him a fox mask with a protection spell before he departs. Tanjiro arrives at Mount Fujikasane, where wisteria flowers bloom all year, creating a prison for demons, and learns that candidates must survive there for seven days in order to pass the test. Tanjiro uses his training to defeat every demon he encounters on his first night, until he and another candidate face a massive shapeshifting demon made of dreadful hands. The Hand Demon swears to kill him, recognizing Tanjiro as Urokodaki’s student thanks to his fox mask, and proudly admits to killing 13 of Urokodaki’s students since being captured by the man himself, including Sabito and Makomo. Tanjiro lashes out at him, enraged. After failing to sever their killer’s neck themselves, the ghosts of Sabito and Makomo wonder if Tanjiro can defeat him. Sabito recalls Tanjiro slicing through the most difficult boulder of all and chooses to believe it. Tanjiro managed to decapitate the Hand Demon with a series of attacks.

Episode 5: To Each His Steel

The demon’s body disintegrates, and the souls of the Urokodaki students he murdered pass on to the next world. As the demon dies, he recalls being turned into a demon as a young boy, and that even after his transformation, he craved to hold a warm hand, particularly his older brother’s. Tanjiro senses his sadness and takes his hand, causing the demon to cry. Tanjiro continues to fight mountain demons the following week, asking them for a method to turn a demon into a human, but no one responds. Tanjiro and three others eventually pass the exam, and they are all given Mizunoto, the lowest of the ten ranks, as well as a Kasugai crow to aid communication. They are also given uniforms and have the option of selecting the ore from which their personal swords are made. Tanjiro returns to the cabin and finds Nezuko, who has awoken after a year and a half of sleep. Nezuko compensates for not eating humans by sleeping to regain her strength, according to Urokodaki. Tanjiro’s sword is delivered 15 days later by Haganezuka, the swordsman. Nichirin blades change color depending on who wields them, and his own turns black, a rare color associated with bad luck according to legend. Tanjiro’s raven Kasugai accepts his first assignment: to travel to a town in the northwest where young girls go missing every night and kill the demon who is responsible.

Episode 6: The hunter accompanied by a demon

Tanjiro travels with Nezuko to the town where young girls go missing at night, carrying her in a box on his back. He meets Kazumi, whose fiancée Satoko vanished the night before. Tanjiro begins to follow the demon’s scent after Kazumi takes him to where his fiancée was last seen. Kazumi recalls being beaten by Satoko’s father, who couldn’t believe Satoko had just vanished and assumed he had done something to her, despite the fact that Tanjiro is a Demon Slayer Corps member. Tanjiro continues his hunt for the demon as night falls. Tanjiro notices another young girl being kidnapped from her bed and deduces that the demon is moving underground in a liquid medium. Tanjiro and Nezuko team up to fight the demon, who has split into three separate entities and is capable of “Blood Demon Art,” which are special spells that demons can use once they reach a certain level of power. Urokodaki informed Tanjiro of the existence of Muzan Kibutsuji, the millennial progenitor of all demons and the only one capable of turning humans into demons.

Episode 7: Kibutsuji Muzan

Tanjiro goes into the Demon Swamp to fight two of them, while Nezuko shields Kazumi and the human daughter from the third. Even though the air is thin and the swamp is dark, his Water Style allows him to create a whirlwind that guts the two and returns to the surface quickly. Tanjiro demands that the last demon, who has been severely injured, tell him about Muzan, which causes the demon to become completely terrified, shocking Tanjiro. After her battle, Nezuko falls asleep and returns to her box, while Tanjiro consoles Kazumi and returns Satoko’s hair ribbon he found in the swamp. Initially, Kazumi is in mourning, but after learning that Tanjiro has experienced something similar, he apologizes. Tanjiro follows his crow Kasugai to Asakusa and, much to his surprise, finds Muzan, disguised as the father of a human family, by following his scent. Recognizing Tanjiro’s membership in the Demon Slayer Corps, Muzan casually slits a passerby’s neck, transforming him into a demon.

Episode 8: The Scent of Bewitching Blood

Tanjiro is forced to subdue the new demon, giving Muzan the opportunity to flee, but not before hearing Tanjiro swear to find him. Tanjiro is aided by a nearby demon, Tamayo, and his companion Yushiro, who arrive and attempt to arrest him. Tamayo, despite being a demon, is also a doctor who believes in the sanctity of human life. She offers the siblings sanctuary in her home, hidden from prying eyes by Yushiro’s blood demon art, and informs them that because each demon contains Muzan’s blood, it can track their movements: s Their cells will be destroyed if they mention it to anyone – this is known as the ‘curse of Kibutsuji.’ After 200 years of tireless research, Tamayo was able to undo Kibutsuji’s curse and gain the ability to turn humans into demons, though this procedure is only performed on critical patients who choose to be turned, Yushiro being one of them. She also altered Yushiro’s and her bodies to allow them to survive on small amounts of human blood obtained through blood transfusions. Tanjiro agrees to help Tamayo find a cure for Nezuko in exchange for letting her study his sister’s blood and bringing her the blood of powerful demons linked to Muzan for her research. Meanwhile, Muzan dispatches two demons to track down and kill Tanjiro: Susamaru with temari balls and Yahaba with eyes with arrows for pupils on his palms.

Episode 9: Balloon and Arrow Demons

Susamaru destroys Yushiro’s Blood Demon Art and strikes the house with her temari, revealing that she and Yahaba are both members of the Twelve Kizuki, powerful demons who serve Muzan directly. Until Yushiro helps him see the arrows Yahaba uses to telekinetically control Susamaru’s temari, Tanjiro struggles to avoid all of his temari, which deviate in physically impossible directions and are difficult to slice. Despite Nezuko’s attack on Yahaba, the siblings are forced to switch opponents, with Yushiro joining them to fight Susamaru, who uses his Blood Demon Art to hide objects. When Tanjiro tries to approach, Yahaba gets the better of him by changing his trajectory, and Nezuko’s leg is blown off by a temari. However,

Episode 10: We’ll Stay Together

Yahaba continues to attack Tanjiro as he disintegrates, determined to kill him by dying, causing Tanjiro to chain blow after blow to lessen the impact, leaving Tanjiro completely exhausted. Nezuko resumes the fight against Susamaru thanks to a healing serum administered by Tamayo, and her strong will greatly sharpens her strength, allowing her to dismiss the temari without harm. Tamayo then uses her Blood Demon Art to reduce Susamaru’s vigilance by inhaling her blood, causing Susamaru to unintentionally activate the Kibutsuji Curse when she speaks her name, after which she is brutally murdered. Tamayo notes that both demons were too weak to be members of the Twelve Kizuki, as members have their rank number engraved on their eyeballs, but takes some of Susamaru’s blood after the battle. As the sun begins to shine, Tanjiro returns Susamaru’s temari to her before she disintegrates. Despite Urokodaki’s spell making Nezuko see humans as her family and demons as her enemies, Nezuko sees Tamayo and Yushiro as humans who need to be protected, making Tamayo cry in gratitude. Tanjiro sees one of those who completed Final Selection with him, Zenitsu Agatsuma, beg a woman in distress to marry him on the street as the siblings leave for their next mission to the southeast.

Episode 11: The House of Drums

Zenitsu is separated from the harassed girl by Tanjiro, who slaps him when he tries to push her. Zenitsu claims that he is frail and will perish in his next job, which is why he was forced to marry. He tells Tanjiro that he didn’t want to be a demon slayer, but he got into debt with a woman, who gave him to his trainer, who turned him into one. The two boys are led to a mansion by Tanjiro’s crow. Zenitsu’s hearing is as acute as Tanjiro’s sense of smell, and he overhears two terrified children telling Tanjiro that they are in a demon’s house, and that the demon has taken their older brother inside. A man is thrown out of the house and dies shortly after, but it is not the brother of one of the siblings. Tanjiro persuades a terrified Zenitsu to enter the house with him, leaving Nezuko (in her box) to protect the siblings. When Tanjiro tells him he still has broken bones, Zenitsu freaks out because it means he can’t protect him. After hearing Nezuko scratching and becoming scared, the siblings enter the demon house behind them, leaving her behind. The house abruptly rearranges, separating the group, with Teruko staying with Tanjiro and Shoichi staying with Zenitsu. Shoichi chastises Zenitsu for being a coward. Zenitsu opens a door and sees a boar-headed man walking past them as he desperately searches for an exit. Teruko hides as the house demon approaches Tanjiro. Tanjiro pounces on the demon, who flees with his prey, a rare-blooded child he’s discovered, before turning the room around and standing against the wall. When he hits a tsuzumi drum that grows from his body, his blood art gives him complete control of the house. Unexpectedly, a boar-headed man entered the room, brandishing a pair of chipped Nichirin swords.

Episode 12: Zen’itsu sleeps, the boar bares its fangs

Inosuke Hashibira, the boar-headed man, attacks the tsuzumi demon Kyogai with reckless abandon, but his Blood Demon Art is unstoppable. Inosuke claims that a human has never thrown him like that and attacks Tanjiro while laughing after the room changes direction and Tanjiro rejects him. He claims that instead of slicing cleanly like Tanjiro, he chipped his swords to tear flesh. The room, however, spins and Inosuke falls out. The pieces separate Tanjiro, Inosuke, and the demon to the sound of an invisible tsuzumi drum. Tanjiro and Teruko follow a scent that leads them to a terrified human boy playing the tsuzumi drum. Zenitsu walks alongside Shoichi and screams in terror when the silence is broken. The scream summons a second demon, who chases them down. Zenitsu eventually passes out. He wakes up while sleeping and kills the demon with his thunder breath. He then wakes up with no recollection of what he did and believes Shoichi is the one who killed him. Inosuke comes across a third demon but easily dispatches it with his beast form. Kyogai wants to eat a marechi, a rare-blooded human worth between fifty and a hundred humans, in order to reclaim his place among the Twelve Moons. Kibutsuji had previously decided that he had reached his limit and had removed his number. Inosuke comes across a third demon but easily dispatches it with his beast form.

Kibutsuji had previously decided that he had reached his limit and had removed his number.

Kiyoshi, Tanjiro’s older brother, is the boy Tanjiro and Teruko find. He kisses him and tells Tanjiro that the three demons battled over who would eat him, and one of Kyogai’s drums was ripped out in the process. He moved to another room when Kiyoshi touched him, and he switches rooms whenever he hears someone approaching. When Tanjiro realizes Kyogai is approaching, he tells the siblings to keep changing rooms and he will find them by their scent. After he leaves, they switch rooms. Tanjiro confronts Kyogai, who starts flipping the room and attacking with a claw-like attack that leaves claw-like grooves on the floor. Tanjiro discovered that each drum has a specific function and can partially compensate for it.

Episode 13: What I Care About More Than My Life

Zenitsu and Shoichi are thrown outside through a second-story window when the entire house rotates. Tanjiro’s room flips over, scattering papers from a cabinet across the room. Tanjiro takes care not to step on them when he lands. Kyogai then recalls how he enjoyed writing as a human, but that his efforts were dismissed. Tanjiro learns to take quick, shallow breaths and strengthens the muscles around his leg as a result, as well as gaining the ability to sense claw attacks. This allows him to get close enough to cut Kyogai’s head off, but not before telling him that his Blood Demon Art was incredible. Before he dies, Kyogai weeps as Tanjiro recognizes his Blood Demon Art and handwriting. Before searching for Kiyoshi and Teruko, Tanjiro takes a blood sample, which is taken by Yushiro’s enchanted cat using an invisibility spell.

When he finds them, he is greeted with a book in his face because their drum has broken and they can no longer transform. He leads them outside, where he discovers Inosuke punching Zenitsu, who is protecting Nezuko’s box. Following Zenitsu out of the house, Inosuke attempted to destroy the box after receiving a demonic vibration from Nezuko inside. Zenitsu recognizes him as the Final Selection’s fifth survivor, who was present but did not show up. Zenitsu could tell there was a demon in Tanjiro’s box because he could hear his breathing and heartbeat, but he thought Tanjiro had a reason for declaring that she was more important than his life, which he protected. When Tanjiro notices Inosuke about to stab Zenitsu, he intervenes.

Episode 14: Wisteria Coat of Arms

Tanjiro punches Inosuke so hard that his ribs split and he falls to the ground. He informs her that Zenitsu will not fight because they are both Demon Corps members and are not allowed to draw their swords at each other. Inosuke misunderstands and charges at Tanjiro, assuming that they can fight with their bare hands. When Inosuke refuses to stop fighting, Tanjiro headbutts him, causing Inosuke’s boar mask to fall off, revealing a very human, albeit beautiful and feminine, face beneath it. Inosuke suffers a concussion, but Tanjiro is unharmed. Inosuke wakes up later to find Tanjiro and the others burying the bodies. Inosuke sees no point in continuing and challenges Tanjiro to a fight. Inosuke goes to bury dead bodies to outwit Tanjiro, who thinks Inosuke won’t help with the burial because his injuries are hurting him too much. All of the bodies will be buried soon. A Kasugai crow appears and asks the group to follow him down the mountain, which they do. The crow spits out a wisteria charm for Kiyoshi to ward off the demons so he won’t be attacked again, and the siblings leave the demon slayers. The three are led to a mansion with a wisteria crest, where the crow instructs them to rest until their wounds have healed. Because the house belongs to a family who was saved by demon slayers, they provide free care for the demon slayers. They are given food and clothing by an elderly lady.

Inosuke tries to provoke Tanjiro into a fight, but he’s far too relaxed to bite. Their injuries are being treated by a doctor because all three have broken ribs. Inosuke joins the Demon Corps after defeating a demon slayer who had come to his mountain and heard about demons and Final Selection and thought it sounded interesting. Zenitsu then inquires as to why Tanjiro is accompanied by a demon. Zenitsu is startled when Nezuko scratches the box. Zenitsu is taken aback by her beauty as she walks out. Tanjiro was carrying her around because she was pretty, and he joined the Demon Slayers to have a pretty demon daughter, he believes. He follows Tanjiro around the room, claiming he needs to be cleansed. Inosuke complains that he is overthinking things and falls asleep.

Episode 15: Mount Natagumo

Zenitsu has calmed down and developed feelings for Nezuko. After the doctor declares them cured and instructs them to travel to Mount Natagumo, a Kasugai crow appears. They get close to the mountain, but Zenitsu is afraid to go any further. When Tanjiro detects something and runs after it, Zenitsu is forced to follow him in order to avoid being left alone. They come across an injured Demon Slayer who has collapsed in the middle of the road, but he is dragged into the trees by wires attached to him. They come across Murata, a terrified Demon Slayer who tells them that ten higher-ranking Demon Slayers, including himself, came to the mountain, but they began killing each other. The Demon Slayer Commander is shown with an exhausted Kasugai Crow in his lap, noting that many have been killed and suspecting the presence of the Twelve Kizuki. He dispatches two Hashiras to the mountain as backup: Tomioka Giyu and Shinobu. Meanwhile, Zenitsu is still blocking the path after being left behind by Tanjiro and Inosuke. When he realizes Tanjiro has taken “his Nezuko” to the mountain, he convinces himself to go. The captured Demon Slayers emerge from the trees on the mountain and attack Tanjiro’s group. Inosuke is stopped from attacking by Tanjiro because some people are still alive. He senses the threads that bind them and realizes how they’re being manipulated. Inosuke frees them, but the puppets’ threads are reattached to the demon slayers by a demon, the spider family’s mother. Rui, a white-haired demon boy who appears above them on wires and says the Mother will kill them before leaving, appears. Rui tells himself that no one will be able to keep the five of them together as a happy family. Inosuke uses his spatial awareness to locate Mother while Tanjiro and Murata occupy the Controlled Slayers.

Episode 16: Putting Others Before Yourself

Murata volunteers to protect Mother from the controlled killers while Tanjiro and Inosuke go after her. The two are apprehended by a controlled killer who begs them to call for help after killing some of her fellow soldiers. Rui appears in front of Mother and tells her she must hurry before he tells Father, and she begs him not to tell Father, terrified. Mother begins to violently manipulate the slayer’s body, breaking her bones in the process. Another begs them to kill him, his arms and legs broken. Inosuke follows Tanjiro’s lead and tackles the slayer, throwing her into the branches, preventing her from fighting. Mother snaps their necks angrily as they prepare to entangle the last one. Meanwhile, Zenitsu is wandering the mountain, calling Nezuko. Insouke and Tanjiro are suddenly confronted by a huge headless demonic doll with blades for arms. Inosuke charges and is almost killed before Tanjiro intervenes. They cut the enormous doll into pieces and it disintegrates as they work together. Tanjiro is thrown into the air by Inosuke and flies towards Mother. This one sees him fall from the sky and panics at first, but realizes that if he kills her and lets him take her down, she will be free of Father’s threats. She warns Tanjiro that one of the Twelve Moons is on the mountain as a thank you for the peace of death. Tanjiro is thrown into the air by Inosuke and flies towards Mother.

Episode 17: Perfecting a Single Technique

Zenitsu flees a human-headed spider and stumbles upon the lair of the demon who built it, the eldest son, whose venom turns people into spiders. He tells Zenitsu that one of his spiders bit him and that he will lose his human form in thirty minutes. As other Spider Demons approach, Zenitsu hides in a tree. He recalls his training with Jigoro Kuwajima, who offered to pay off his debt if he agreed to become his apprentice. While hiding in a tree, he was struck by lightning, which turned his hair yellow. He tells himself that he is a pitiful person who wishes to change his ways. Zenitsu passes out when he realizes his hair is starting to fall out. He starts attacking the eldest son while sleeping. He claims to have only learned one form of Thunder Breathing, but that he mastered it to the point of perfection. He recalls being bullied by Kaigaku, another Kuwajima student, who thought it was pointless to spend time with him.

As an orphan, Zenitsu had no one who believed in him, no one who wanted to stay with him except Kuwajima. The poison starts to affect Zenitsu, causing him to cough up blood, but he finishes the attack and corners and kills the eldest son at breakneck speed. He eventually wakes up, but the poison has rendered him immobile. Zenitsu employs a breathing technique to slow the poison’s spread as much as possible. When Tanjiro hears about Zenitsu’s attack, he decides to investigate. He and Inosuke come across the Spider Family’s daughter, who runs away and calls Father before they part ways. The Girl leaves after the latter comes to her aid.

Episode 18: Fake Links

At Mount Natagumo, Giyu and Shinobu split up to cover more ground. Father is barely scratched by Tanjiro and Inosuke’s blades. Tanjiro cuts down the demon with a tree, but Father jams Tanjiro’s sword and knocks him away with the tree. When Shinobu arrives and lands next to Zenitsu, the poison causes him to lose use of his arms and legs. Tanjiro safely lands and follows the Girl’s cries as she is tortured by Rui. Tanjiro inquires as to what Rui is up to, but Rui responds that it is a family matter between him and his “sister,” which irritates Tanjiro. When one of the remaining Demon Slayers arrives, Rui throws a web at him, ripping him apart instantly. After that, Tanjiro fights Rui, frantically pinning his threads with his sword despite numerous minor cuts. Father pursues Inosuke until he realizes he’s impersonating Tanjiro and attacks him. Inosuke pierces Father’s arm with one sword and strikes him with the other, severing his arm. Father, wounded, flees. He loses his skin and grows taller and more muscular with a new arm, turning against Inosuke with increased speed, strength, and skin density. When Inosuke tries to cut Father’s neck with his swords, they shatter and he is sent flying. Father lifts Inosuke up, about to crush his head, and Inosuke uses his position to try to pierce Father’s neck with his sword, but to no avail. Giyu rushes over and cuts Father’s arm, causing Inosuke to fall. Father extends another arm and charges, but Giyu kills him quickly, leaving Inosuke stunned. Tanjiro detects the scent of the threads and attempts to approach Rui, only to have the thread cut his blade and continue to come at his face.

Episode 19: The God of Fire

Tanjiro manages to avoid the wire but suffers a deep cut across his face. Inosuke is awestruck by Giyu’s ability to kill one of the Twelve Moons so easily, but Giyu claims that Father was not one of the Twelve Moons or even on their level. Inosuke challenges Giyu, but the latter ties him up and tells him that he is too hurt to leave. Shinobu congratulates Zenitsu on slowing the spread of the poison by injecting him with an antidote. Rui throws a web of yarn at Tanjiro, but Nezuko leaps from her box and takes the brunt of the blow. Rui realizes they are siblings and is taken aback by the fact that a demon is guarding Tanjiro, despite their genuine bond. He decides he wants her more than his alleged sister and slashes the Girl’s head off, threatening to kill her unless she kills the people on the mountain. With her head, the Girl departs. Rui offers Tanjiro the chance to live if he gives him Nezuko, but Tanjiro refuses and says he will kill him. Rui doubts his ability, revealing that he is a member of the Lower Moon Five. Tanjiro charges as he uses his threads to pull Nezuko towards him. Tanjiro avoids the wires while Nezuko slashes Rui’s face with her claws. Rui punishes Nezuko by suspending her in the air with wires piercing her.

Tanjiro charges at Rui in the final form of his Water Style, becoming strong enough to cut the wires. Rui makes the threads as strong as possible, forming a cage around Tanjiro. Tanjiro is terrified of death and recalls his childhood with his family. As their family worked with fire, his father was frail, but on New Years he would dance a kagura dance as a prayer to the God of Fire to ward off evil. Tanjiro was perplexed as to how his frail father could dance in the snow, and his father explained that he used a special breathing technique that allowed him to dance indefinitely. Tanjiro can slice through the enhanced threads using his sword and his father’s kagura dance. He gets close enough to kill Rui, despite the fact that Rui’s sons will kill him in return. In her sleep, Nezuko has a dream about her mother waking her up to save her brother. Nezuko uses her blood on the wires that hold her in place in a Blood Demon Art, causing the blood to ignite and burn the wires. Tanjiro’s blade lands after fire travels down the wires, severing those who were about to strike him. Tanjiro swears that the bond between him and Nezuko cannot be broken as his blade cuts off Rui’s head with Nezuko’s burning blood on it.

Episode 20: An improvised family

Tanjiro collapses from his injuries and crawls over to Nezuko, who has fallen and is unable to move. He notices blood behind him and realizes that he normally smells like ash after slaying demons with his sword. Rui stands up and repositions his head. When he realized he would be beheaded by the Nichirin sword, he cut his neck with one of his own sons, he tells Tanjiro. Enraged, he wraps wires around Tanjiro, only for Giyu to arrive and save him. Giyu praises Tanjiro for persevering until he arrived. Rui throws a sheet of wires at Giyu, who shreds them with the eleventh form of Water Breathing he invented. Giyu then decapitates him. The Girl recalls being pursued by Demon Hunters and being rescued by Rui, who promised her a place in her family. Rui changed her appearance by feeding her some of his blood. Rui had many siblings with whom he shared blood, and he insisted on them acting like family. If they did something Rui didn’t like, he punished them, sometimes by hurting them, sometimes by hanging them up and letting the sunlight kill them. As a result, the number of members was reduced to five.

Before being knocked to the ground by Shinobu, the Girl encounters Murata and imprisons him in a cocoon filled with acid that will liquefy him. Shinobu inquires as to how many people she has murdered, claiming that once she has tortured her for all of the people she has murdered, they can be friends and her sins will be forgiven. Shinobu slashes her neck with his sword, which is only sharpened at the tip because it lacks the strength to decapitate demons, because she refuses. Shinobu’s wisteria-based poison, however, kills the Girl. Murata is then released by Shinobu. Rui believes he created the fake family because he had no memories of his previous life as a human and believed that if he could feel a family connection, his memories would return.

Episode 21: Code Breach

Rui is finally able to recall his human life as he dies. He was born with a weak body that rendered him bedridden until Kibutsuji transformed him into a demon and gave him a powerful body. His father then attempted to murder him while his mother stood by and did nothing, so Rui killed both of them, furious that parents were supposed to protect their children. His mother’s final words were that she regretted not being able to provide Rui with a strong body, and that his father intended to kill himself after killing him. He realizes too late that it was, after all, a genuine connection. Rui accepted Kibutsuji’s explanation that it was his parents’ fault for not accepting him, rather than the truth. He buried their memories, but his fictitious family never satisfied him. Rui’s body collapses just before reaching Tanjiro and Nezuko, and Tanjiro regains consciousness. Tanjiro reaches out to Rui, overwhelmed by the scent of grief he detects. As he fades away, Rui apologizes to his parents, allowing his spirit to reunite with his parents. After Giyu’s body dissolves, Tanjiro begs him not to step on Rui’s clothes, explaining that he will kill demons without hesitation but believes they are more tragic than terrifying creatures, and Giyu recognizes Tanjiro and Nezuko. His spirit being reunited with his parents’. After Giyu’s body dissolves, Tanjiro begs him not to step on Rui’s clothes, explaining that he will kill demons without hesitation but believes they are more tragic than terrifying creatures, and Giyu recognizes Tanjiro and Nezuko. His spirit being reunited with his parents’. After Giyu’s body dissolves, Tanjiro begs him not to step on Rui’s clothes, explaining that he will kill demons without hesitation but believes they are more tragic than terrifying creatures, and Giyu recognizes Tanjiro and Nezuko.

Giyu surprises Shinobu by blocking Shinobu’s blade and taking a defensive position in front of the siblings, surprising her. Tanjiro follows Giyu’s advice and takes Nezuko with him. Kanao Tsuyuri, the girl who finished the final selection with Tanjiro, kicks Tanjiro to the ground. Tanjiro orders Nezuko to flee, only to be knocked out by Kanao, who then tries to kill the fleeing Nezuko. Shinobu warns Giyu that he is breaking Corps rules by pinning him. The Kasugai Crows, who had been watching, interrupt everyone by saying that Tanjiro and Nezuko must be apprehended and returned to headquarters, so Kanao, Giyu, and Shinobu all sheath their swords. Inosuke is discovered, but he is sobbing to himself because he was powerless to stop a demon, and he begins to question his own strength. The Kakushis have cured Zenitsu and the eldest son’s other victims, including those who turned into spiders, and they are being transported to the Butterfly Mansion for further treatment. Tanjiro awakens later, bound and gagged in front of the Demon Slayers’ chief swordsmen, the Hashiras.

Episode 22: The Master

The nine most powerful demon slayers confront Tanjiro: Giyu (the water pillar), Shinobu (the insect pillar), Kyjuro Rengoku (the flame pillar), Tengen Uzui (the sound pillar), Mitsuri Kanroji (the Love Pillar), Muichir Tokit (the Mist Pillar), Gymei Himejima (the Stone Pillar), Obanai Iguro (the Serpent Pillar), and Sanem (the Wind Pillar). They punish Tanjiro for breaking the Demon Slayer Corps’ rules by traveling with a demon, even if it was his sister. Tanjiro claims that she will not eat humans and that she can fight alongside Demon Slayers to defend them. Sanemi stabs the box and Nezuko’s shoulder as she walks out with Nezuko in her box, calling him a hypocrite. Tanjiro charges at him, and Giyu warns him that the Master is approaching and that he should stop, startling Sanemi and allowing Tanjiro to headbutt him and knock him to the ground, impressing the Hashiras. Before Sanemi can return his blow, the Demon Slayer Master arrives, and all of the Hashiras kneel down, with Sanemi forcing Tanjiro to lower his head. The Master, accompanied by two white-haired girls, is a blind man with scars on the upper half of his face. The Master says he approved Tanjiro and Nezuko’s situation and asks the Hashiras to accept it, but the majority refuses. The Master has one of the girls summarize a letter from Urokodaki Sakonji, revealed to be the former Water Pillar, requesting that the Master approve Tanjiro’s situation because Nezuko hasn’t lost her emotions. humans or cause harm to a human.

Sanemi claims that no matter how they kill each other, their safety is never guaranteed. Rengoku agrees, saying that if Nezuko kills a human, she will not be resurrected by suicide. The Master acknowledges that there is no guarantee that Nezuko will not attack humans, but he also acknowledges that she may. Even though she is starving, she hasn’t hurt a single person in two years, and there are three people who would vouch for her at the risk of their lives, so the Master decides to take the risk unless the Hashiras can come up with a better argument. He goes on to say that Tanjiro met Kibutsuji, which surprises them because none of the Hashira have seen him before. They begin to press him for information about Kibutsuji until the Master silences them. Kibutusuji has sent pursuers after Tanjiro, according to the Master, and this is the first time he has revealed himself. The Master refuses to let him go and inquires if the Hashira are okay with him now. Sanemi continues to object, claiming that sparing a human is one thing, but harboring a demon is unacceptable after everything the demon slayers have been through and the loss of countless of their brethren. He extends his arm, demonstrating that Nezuko is untrustworthy. After stabbing Nezuko twice more through the box and throwing it inside the master’s house out of the sun, he opens it and orders Nezuko to attack him.

Episode 23: The Meeting of the Pillars

Obanai pins Tanjiro, but he breaks the ropes on his wrists and runs towards Nezuko, Giyu grabbing Obanai to keep him from stopping him. Tanjiro comes to a halt beneath the porch and calls out to her, unable to intervene directly. Nezuko remembers her family and restrains her instincts, surprising Sanemi by turning away from him. This serves as proof to the Master that he can be trusted. The Master tells Tanjiro that even after this, other members of the Corps are unlikely to accept Nezuko, so he and Nezuko are sent to defeat some demons and prove themselves. Tanjiro declares that the siblings will defeat Kibutsuji, despite the Master’s advice to begin with a Twelve Moon, which embarrasses him – though the Hashiras grow to like him and admire his wit. Nezuko and Tanjiro are transported to Kocho Mansion by two Kakushi. Tanjiro tries to headbutt Sanemi for each time he stabbed Nezuko, but Muichir stops him by throwing three pebbles at his head, telling him not to bother the master, and he is taken away once more.

As he walks away, the master tells Tanjiro to give Miss Tamayo his regards, which makes Tanjiro wonder if he heard her correctly. The Kakushi search the Butterfly Mansion for someone to ask permission to enter and find Kanao, a Tsuguko[e]. She smiles but doesn’t say anything when they ask permission, which perplexes them. They are interrupted and escorted to the infirmary by a Kocho girl. Zenitsu bemoans the bitter medicine he needs to regrow his limbs, which are still deformed from the venom. Zenitsu and Tanjiro exchange happy greetings, and Zenitsu motions to Inosuke, who is lying silently next to him in a bed. Inosuke says not to worry in a low voice, his voice damaged by the injuries Father inflicted on him. Tanjiro is relieved that he survived. He is depressed and regrets being so frail. Nezuko has her own room and is quick to fall asleep. Tanjiro reiterates his promise to make her human.

Meanwhile, the Hashira resume their meeting; demons are active at the moment, and the Corps needs to recruit and train new members, so the Masters ask the Hashira for their thoughts: Sanemi points out that the Mount Natagumo incident clearly demonstrated that the caliber of demon slayers has deteriorated, with the majority of them rendered useless. Shinobu claims that recruiting is difficult at this time because many people do not believe in demons, and the more humans there are, the less united they are and the more difficult they are to control. Only those who have lost loved ones to demons or are descended from demon slayers join the Corps, according to Gyomei, and asking the average person to make the same or even greater commitment would be cruel. Rengoku believes that Tanjiro can learn more from the Kizuki because he met them soon after joining the Corps. Rui’s drastic actions, according to the Master, confirm that Kibutsuji is far from Mount Natagumo because he always creates a serious diversion elsewhere whenever he wants to hide. After everyone has left, the Master swears that Muzan Kibutsuji will be brought down.

Episode 24: Recovery Training

Rengoku embarks on a mission after learning of the discovery of an Upper Moon. Tanjiro, Inosuke, and Zenitsu are all visited by Murata. Tanjiro and Inosuke begin rehabilitation training, followed two weeks later by Zenitsu. He makes them stretch, puts their reflexes to the test against Kanao, and tags her and Aoi. When Zenitsu learns that they return in such bad shape that they can frolic with girls 24 hours a day, he is furious. Despite their victory over Aoi, neither of them is able to defeat Kanao. Zenitsu and Inosuke stop coming to practice after a period of consistent defeats, seeing no point in continuing when they can’t win. As Tanjiro returns to his bed, the Kocho triplets compliment him on his persistence and inform him that Kanao employs Total Focus Breathing, which he maintains day and night, even while sleeping. They then tell him that the Hashiras and Kanao have defeated him, and that he can only use it in battle. He starts training to subdue him, and the triplets inform him that Shinobu forced Kanao to breathe so hard into special gourds that they exploded. He noticed that he had grown stronger after a few weeks. Shinobu joins him on the roof of the mansion later that night. Shinobu wishes to entrust Tanjiro with his dream of humans and demons living in harmony. He detects a whiff of rage in her, and she tells him that her older sister was murdered by a demon, and that her hatred for demons is growing. Shinobu tries, but she can’t feel the same compassion for demons as his sister. She will find a way to live in peace with the demons as she wishes for the sake of her sister, and she will never stop smiling because her sister adored her smile. She’d had enough of trying, but then Nezuko showed up, and Shinobu says she can trust Tanjiro to pursue her sister’s dream. She’ll find a way to live in peace with the demons as she wishes, and she’ll never stop smiling because her sister adored it.

Episode 25: Tsuyuri Kanao, the Successor

If Tanjiro does not practice Total Concentration Breathing while sleeping, the Kocho triplets attack him. Tanjiro notices that the longer he breathes, the greater his stamina becomes. He can now follow Kanao and use his breath to blow up a small gourd. Zenitsu and Inosuke look around and realize they’ve been abandoned. They inquire about Tanjiro’s activities, which Shinobu explains. She then cheers them on by taunting Inosuke for not being strong enough to do it and telling Zenitsu that she is his biggest supporter. They participate in Tanjiro’s training. Kanao watches the boys practice and considers tossing a coin to see if she should join them, recalling her childhood. They were poor, and her father abused and starved her, as well as her siblings, to the point of breaking them. She felt nothing when her parents sold her into slavery. Shinobu and her older sister, Kanae, stopped her as she walked to be sold by her new owner. Kanao remained silent when Kanae addressed her, despite the fact that she had never been given a name. Kanae felt sorry for her, so the siblings purchased/stole Kanao and fled with her. Kanao was so broken that she had no choice but to eat when she was told to. Shinobu was enraged when Kanae gave her a coin to flip to help her make decisions. Kanae explained that if given the chance, a human soul would open up.

Kanao declines to train with the boys in their room. The reforged swords of Inosuke and Tanjiro are delivered to the mansion, despite Haganezuka’s attempt to kill Tanjiro. Kanamori, the other swordsmith, appears, having reforged Inosuke’s swords. Inosuke threatens to kill him after he uses a stone to chip them like his old swords. Tanjiro defeats Kanao in practice the next day. Zenitsu and Inosuke intensify their training to catch him. Tanjiro is declared physically fit and inquires of Shinobu about his father’s Hinokami Kagura dance and his father’s Breath of Fire, both of which she is unfamiliar with. She tells him about the Breath of Flame, but the name has to be Breath of Flame, not Breath of Fire. She is unaware of the details and advises him to inquire of Rengoku the next time they meet. Tanjiro pays a visit to Nezuko, who has been sleeping in the mansion since they arrived. He’s feeling a little down about everything he’s got going on: helping Nezuko, defeating powerful demons, and bringing their blood to Tamayo, but he thinks he hears the sleeping Nezuko talking to him and encouraging him. A demon kills and eats passengers on a train.

Episode 26: New Mission

The five remaining Lower Moons are summoned into a warped space controlled by a demon with a biwa after Rui’s death a few months ago. They don’t recognize Muzan Kibutsuji because he disguised himself as a woman until he ordered them to kneel down. He informs them that Rui, one of the Lower Five, has been killed and questions why the Lower Moons are so weak. He goes on to say that they shouldn’t just be among the twelve Kizuki, but that they should devour more humans and grow stronger in order to be useful to him. He goes on to tell them that the Upper Moons haven’t changed in over a century and that they’re the only ones who’ve killed Hashira-level Demon Slayers, and he asks the remaining Lower Moons how many times they’ve been replaced. Except for Lower One, Kibutsuji kills them all for doing things he considers disrespectful. Lower One tells Kibutsuji that it is an honor to die by his hand and thanks him for allowing him to witness the agony of others in his final words. Kibutsuji accepts this response as valid and gives Lower One a large amount of his blood to strengthen him, as well as a request that he be useful to him by killing a Hashira; he then promises to give him even more blood if he can kill the demon slayer wearing hanafuda (Tanjiro) earrings. Muzan leaves the meeting, while Lower One is summoned from space, saying that more blood would be a dream. Except for Lower One, Kibutsuji kills them all for doing things he considers disrespectful.

A Kasugai crow awakens Tanjiro, Zenitsu, and Inosuke today, giving them a mission: to travel to the Infinity Train, where 40 Demon Slayers have vanished, and kill the demon there. While walking, Tanjiro comes across Final Selection’s Genya, who has a more muscular build, but he ignores her. Tanjiro pays Aoi a visit, thanking her for her assistance, but she declines, claiming that she only survived Final Selection by chance and was too afraid to fight. For her, Tanjiro says he’ll take his feelings to the battlefield. He also bids Kanao farewell, who decides whether or not to speak with him by tossing a coin. She says goodbye to him when the coin lands correctly, explaining that she uses the coin to decide things she wasn’t ordered to do because she can’t make her own decisions. Tanjiro takes her coin and declares that if she gets tails, she will listen to herself and make her own decisions. She collapses and asks how he got her to do that when she didn’t see him cheating, but Tanjiro smiles and says he would have flipped her if she hadn’t done it. as many times as needed until it lands heads Tanjiro sees Giyu just before the boys leave and thanks him for his assistance. Tanjiro promises to thank Giyu by killing demons, which Giyu says he will do. When the boys arrive at the station, Inosuke causes a commotion because he has never seen a train before. They attract the police’s attention and flee. According to Zenitsu, the government does not recognize demon slayers because it is unaware that demons exist. They board the train that is leaving. Rengoku and the Lower of the Twelve Moons are also on the train with them.
