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.
This episode rolled around a lot sooner than I had been expecting. Yet I found myself excited to actually shove everything else aside and spend eight minutes watching it.
Looking back at my attitude regarding this series when it first started, I am amazed at how much I have flipped around on this mini series. While I was always aware this was a promotional anime, designed to sell a card game rather than a serious piece of storytelling (as serious as Dragon Ball can get there days) or add anything new to the ongoing lore.
