I’ve already expressed my feelings about the contradictory aspects of this game and how my admiration for it stopped me from challenging myself around it. Ultimately though, it was my feelings of wanting to see this game out that led to an experience of duality in more than one aspect of the game. Which makes sense considering the nature of the story.
Aside from often looking fantastic (far better than the art in the Manga in fact), I don’t always notice how beautiful some of the music and sound design in Demon Slayer is. It seems determined to remind me in this episode as Nezuko turns her back on the taunting of the psychotic wind pillar’s taunting. Thank God.
I am having a number of mixed feelings when it comes to this show. Feelings that are mostly centred on a single thing I can’t help but get hung up on when watching a show like this. I run the risk of having a pretty unpopular opinion here, but I’m just going to come out and say it: I just don’t like fan service in anime.
