<div>Two months later, Tanjiro has a dream about his ancestor's encounter with a Demon Slayer from the past that saved their family and wore the same earrings as Tanjiro, before waking up from a coma, still recovering from his injuries while Zenitsu and Inosuke are summoned to individual missions. Because his swordsmith Hotaru Haganezuka had refused to forge him a new sword due to Tanjiro breaking his previous ones, Tanjiro is told to meet him at the Swordsmith Village to discuss the matter with him in person. He arrives with Nezuko and meets the Love Hashira Mitsuri Kanroji and the village's chief Tecchin Tecchikawahara, who assures Tanjiro he will bring Hotaru back to build the sword.</div><div></div><div></div><div></div><div></div><div></div><div>download demon slayer kimetsu no yaiba - to the swordsmith village</div><div></div><div>Download: </div><div></div><div></div><div>Tanjiro journeys to a village of swordsmiths and has to explain how his sword was so badly damaged to Hotaru Haganezuka, the smith who made it. While Tanjiro waits for his sword to be repaired, enemies close in...[1] The Mist Hashira, Muichiro Tokito, engages the demons, but he'll need some help from Tanjiro and Genya, another Demon Slayer. It's bad enough that they have to fight two upper-rank demons, but can they handle a foe who can split itself into four separate bodies and regenerate almost instantly?[2]</div><div></div><div></div><div>Unfortunately for the pair, they don't get much time to dig into its origins as Upper Rank demons Hantengu and Gyokko invade the village. It's revealed that Hantengu, especially, is extremely hard to kill: every time he is beheaded, his body splits in two and forms 'new' personas. Tanjiro is picked up by a swooping Hantengu, while Kotestu and Mist Hashira Muichiro have to deal with Gyokko's assault.</div><div></div><div></div><div>For anime only fans, Demon Slayer underwent 11 total arcs in the manga. The final arc was split into two parts, and explored a generational timeskip that saw the reincarnations of those who died across the series, as well as the future generation of the beloved characters who survived. With nine arcs already available for anime only fans, the most recent Swordsmith Village arc airing during the Summer 2023 season, it won't be long before Tanjiro Kamado and his fellow demon slayers arrive at the end of their story.</div><div></div><div></div><div>The Kidnapper's Bog arc, or the First Mission arc, follows Tanjiro's first steps to becoming a full-fledged demon slayer. He goes on his first mission during this arc to investigate why young women have been inexplicably disappearing. The main event of this arc was Tanjiro and Nezuko's battle against the Swamp Demon. It wasn't an Upper Rank or even a Lower Rank in Muzan's Twelve Kizuki, but the resulting fight certainly proved just how vicious these demons could be. It also showcased Tanjiro and Nezuko's impressive teamwork, one of the first Demon Slayer arcs to do so.</div><div></div><div></div><div>The Tsuzumi Mansion arc was one of the most action-packed Demon Slayer arcs. Tanjiro was sent on a mission to investigate a house where Kyogai, a former Twelve Kizuki member, was wreaking havoc. This arc formally introduced the lovable coward Zenitsu Agatsuma and the hard-headed boar-child Inosuke Hashibira. Zenitsu unveiled his true power against the Tongue Demon, and fans got their first glimpse of Inosuke's potential during his fight against the Horned Demon. Tanjiro's fight against Kyogai was epic, and its aftermath proved the young demon slayer's boundless compassion.</div><div></div><div></div><div></div><div></div><div></div><div></div><div>One of the most exciting Demon Slayer arcs, Mugen Train was adapted into a movie that fans can watch on Crunchyroll. Rengoku stole the show in this arc as the leading trio fought alongside him to defeat Enmu, a Lower Rank demon who had fused his spirit with the train. He was challenging to defeat, especially since the slayers were all in dreamland for most of his attack. By its conclusion, this arc turned out to be one of the series' most brutal. Akaza popped in at the end and famously took down Rengoku, proving the seemingly limitless strength of the Upper Rank demons.</div><div></div><div></div><div>A synopsis for the manga reads: "Tanjiro journeys to a village of swordsmiths and has to explain how his sword was so badly damaged to Hotaru Haganezuka, the smith who made it. While Tanjiro waits for his sword to be repaired, enemies close in.</div><div></div><div></div><div>Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba has been a massive success since its inception, garnering a huge following of fans who are captivated by the story of a young boy, Tanjiro, who becomes a demon slayer to avenge his family's death and finds a cure for his sister, who has been turned into a demon. The anime has been praised for its stunning animation, compelling characters, and intense action sequences that keep fans on the edge of their seats.</div><div></div><div></div><div>Tanjiro travels to the secretive Swordsmith Village to get his sword repaired, encountering some familiar Hashira (and one new one.) But despite the village's tight security, somehow Muzan, the demon lord, has discovered its location, and dispatches Upper Moon Demons 4 and 5 to destroy the village and its occupants.</div><div></div><div></div><div>Inosuke and Zenitsu largely disappear in this one, being sent off on missions of their own. I guess the disappearance of the latter, in particular, accounts for this installment being less shouty/whiny than any of the others. The show still does throw in a facetious gag every now and then, often in places counterproductive to a scene's intentions or mood, but I largely forgave it for that. (And don't get me wrong about Zenitsu; when he's in his reflective mode I rather like him. The problem is, he's not allowed to be in that mode very often.)Young- and utterly deadpan- Mist Hashira Muichiro Tokito is one of the people Tanjiro re-encounters in the village. We'll get Muichiro's backstory this time, though it's a pretty standard-issue Slayer tale. It's fit into the series' episode formula, which kicks in here around the third episode (everything after this is one long battle): we'll start with the battle; then flashbacks to someone's (Hashira or demon) backstory; then MORE fighting; and finally a cliffhanger of some sort, to make us come back next week for the resolution.Those battles, though, are as spectacularly animated as any I've EVER seen in a shonen series; they're every bit as viscerally thrilling as those in high-rent shows like Attack on Titan, and make the paltry efforts in drivel like Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer look disgraceful in comparison- even given that Demon Slayer's fights are almost all night battles. (This season's struggle does extend into the early morning hours, however. It was a very busy night.)This season introduces us to the Love Hashira, Mitsuri Kanroji. In addition to being one of the few female Slayers, her backstory is quite different from the others, a story of a misfit rather than a story of horror like Tanjiro's or Muichiro's. (Her weird hair colors aren't just a whim of the artist's; they're part of her story.) She's equipped with a bizarre sword which seems implausible, but Crunchy commenters have noted it resembles a real Indian sword called a urumi. (First Lady Kocho, now Mitsuri; maybe there's a trend here for giving the female Hashiras oddball swords.)Mitsuri's also super-strong, and that brings me to another point: the Demon Slayers are really sort of Taisho Era superheroes. Superman, in the early comic books, was not capable of sustained flight, but could only do gigantic leaps; that's got nothing on Mitsuri here. And Muichiro AT LEAST TWICE should have died from the attacks of the demon he's squared off against. Tanjiro, for his part, in his internal monologue is always thinking about the injuries that are rendering him immobile; but he's always somehow summoning that last reserve of strength that's always hidden in there somewhere. Well, all the Slayers SHOULD have died during the Entertainment District Arc, so you just accept that these guys are impossibly durable, and roll with it. (In fairness, of course, a few of the Slayers WERE slain in previous chapters, and Tengen, the Hashira in Entertainment District, did get disarmed. If you view the Slayers as superheroes, compared to U.S. comics they've more personality than the DC bunch, and maybe even a bit more personality than the Marvel characters.) Their opponents in this season are Upper Moons 4 and 5. 5 lives in a jar, is fond of using water and fish as weapons, and has a highly inflated ego (and memorably bizarre appearance), but he is just one demon; while 4 is a composite demon (like the "one" in Entertainment District), able to split into separate entities, or have its parts recombine in different fashions. 4 is quite a bit more trouble to deal with not just because of this, but because it has a mult-layered defense as well, requiring Tanjiro, Nezuko, Mitsuri (late in the struggle), and Genya Shinazugawa all working together. (Genya I remembered from a previous installment- his personality is every bit as surly as a demon's.) There is a "shocking" scene (as it's been described in promos for the show) near the end, involving the apparent death of a key character- but Death can (as in the Tarot) simply mean "change".</div><div></div><div> 356178063d</div>
