Demon Slayer Episode 12 Review

Would you look at that, a split personality?

I suppose Lynn got it right for this prediction. I had expected the super strong ability he has, but not the split personality. It resembles a sleeping Zenitsu, but his whole demeanor and voice changes and he looks much cooler.

He reveals the actual reason he passed the selection trials. He is in fact a super strong demon slayer trained in the arts of Thunder Breathing. The way he defeated that demon was absolutely epic. 

I still don’t like him yet, he still has long way to go before I am less annoyed about him, but that scene certainly helped. I just wish that split personality could take over… permanently.

Also, Boar Head made a cool little appearance in that episode. Self-taught Beast Breathing huh? He didn’t have to say “self-taught” but then again if I had spent years self teaching something to myself, you’d hear it all the time too. I kind of want to see more of him now.

I almost forgot about the elephant in the room. The demon of the mansion is actually an ex Kizuki member, isn’t that exciting. Tanjiro will have more blood to collect. However, I am not very impressed with him so far, sure he is powerful and his tzuzumi blood art makes him pretty much untouchable, but compared to Yahaba and Susamaru, he isn’t all that impressive.

It seems Tanjiro will be fighting next episode using his Water Breathing. Honestly, I don’t think that’s going to cut it, it’s very admirable and expected that he won’t give up, but he is wounded and in pain against a demon that is stronger than Yahaba and Susamaru. Also, his movements and his injuries don’t add up. He acknowledged them and admitted he was in pain, but his movements were quite precise and unaffected by the injuries he said were hurting him substantially. I’m not too mad at it, but I don’t want him to be too overpowered either. 

I suppose and hope that boar head and Zenitsu will join him to somehow defeat the demon in an epic battle. I think there were a few clips in the opening about that, but that’s why I skip openings sometimes, too many spoilers. So I don’t know exactly what’s going to happen, and I’m looking forward to it.

By the way still no Nezuko…To think the show traded Nezuko’s screen time for Zenitsu? I’m filing a lawsuit. Okay but really, I want to see her kick some demons and support her brother, I don’t think it’ll ever get old.

    Yeah, I think we spotted all the same things. I’m expecting a three on one demon Slayer battle which will be the beginning of their group friendship.
