The longest night is finally over, and there’s nothing like a little hijinks to being you back down to Earth after a pretty intense ending to a pretty action packed arc. Which isn’t to say there still isn’t a lot of peril and danger going on here, it’s just that I’m laughing along with it rather than sweating bullets.
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.
I spent the last post talking about how much I’d grown to like Zenitsu after really not being a big fan based on his introduction. I ended by saying that the show just needed to make me like Inosuke a little more. Well, as if knowing I’d say that, we get an episode that does glean a little more into the Boar Boy’s history and character.
