Kimetsu No Yaiba Episode 14
Remember how at the end of the previous episode, Zenitsu had protected Nezuko from Boar Head Dude (Inosuke Hashibira)? Well, things get even more tense in this episode. Turns out that not only does Inosuke not want to back down, he also wants to fight and defeat the already badly injured Tanjiro!

Hello everybody! Today, we are going to discuss episode 14 of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. This was more or less a filler episode. When you have these epic shows, you need a filler to settle your nerves, regroup, and prepare for the next arc. During this time, we get to know the characters a little better and perhaps establish some relationships or tie up loose ends. This episode does a little bit of all of this. But, did it do this successfully?
I can already predict a lot of viewers dismissing this episode entirely, and I wouldn't entirely blame them. Zenitsu has already proven to be a divisive character, and Inosuke is just a different brand of loud, buffoonish crazy person. Over dinner, Inosuke reveals that the only reason he's a Demon Slayer is because he's a literal Crazy Mountain Man who robbed an actual Demon Slayer of his weapons and fought in the Final Selection just to see what killing demons was like (as you might have guessed, he really likes it). Later, when Zenitsu discovers that the demon Tanjiro has been carrying around all this time is his ridiculously cute little sister, Zenitsu flies off into an uncontrollable rage. There are many choice reaction faces from nearly every character involved and, to absolutely nobody's surprise, a hell of a lot of yelling.
As for me, I actually dug this episode a lot. I think it veers a little too hard into pumping out comedic relief, but Demon Slayer was never going to last with just Tanjiro and Nezuko as our leads, and even though Zenitsu and Inosuke are incredibly obnoxious in their own ways, I like the dynamic they share with our hero. The show has done such a good job handling its mythology and the more serious episodes that I'm willing to indulge its wackier instincts, at least for now. I wouldn't want to watch week after week of Three Teenagers and a Little Demon Lady, but given how gory and morbid Demon Slayer can be, there's no harm in the show embracing its goofier side. Humor is subjective, though, so I won't be surprised if fans decide to fast-forward through episodes like this one so they can get to the actual demon slaying that Demon Slayer does so well. 041b061a72
