Well, this was an episode of redemption for all kinds of people wasn’t it. Although the backstory and sorta-redemptive arc for the drummer demon ended up amusing me more than anything, which I doubt was the intention.
I was very down on Zenitsu last week. His extended periods of freaking out being a major focus of the episode. I did, however, end things on a hopeful note. Saying that a character such as him did have more potential to turn himself around in the future, getting a much bigger growth arc than even Tanjiro could hope for.
This week sees the conclusion of this mini arc featuring Tamayo and Yushiro; who have shown us that Nezuko isn’t the only demon out there that isn’t a monstrous engine of murder, well not when it comes to humans anyway.
