I feel like I’ve fallen into something of a rut watching this show. I’ve found myself increasingly hung up on certain storytelling aspects of the series and how it’s dealing with condensing a lot of information from the source material into a mere 13 episodes. Long story short: it’s doing a bad job. Which is a shame, because for the most part I’m still enjoying the series.
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.
This week we get a very action orientated episode in which the two demons; Tamayo and Yushiro attack Tanjiro and his companions under order or Muzan. Who was helpfully compared to Michael Jackson to me by someone on Twitter. And now that’s all I can see.
