I made a prediction about the direction I felt this show was going a few reviews back, then it went and totally defied my expectations by having last episode happen. Demon Slayer, it seems, wanted it both ways though, making Tanjiro the badass and also in need of rescuing. So my predictions ended up coming to fruition in the end anyway.
We arrive at the half way point for the series and things start to take a turn, a turn that gives me final battle with DIO vibes from part III. Bucciarati arrives to deliver Trish to the boss, finally making strides to enact his and Giornno’s plan to screw over the head of the Mafia.
It had been so long that I kind of forgot that Giorno and Bucciarati were in bed together (so to speak) in their plan to upend the criminal underworld in Italy. And a good portion of this episode gets into Bucciarati backstory, which surprisingly we had not encountered before this point.
