Nezuko turned into a "flashy demon," at least to Uzui. And I suppose he would know.

I can't tell if Uzui is terrible at gauging his opponent's strength (sneak attack + Daki being weakened after getting the shit pounded out of her by Nezuko, of course he managed to behead her) or if, in a twist, she's actually supposed to be weak with her brother being the main reason she holds that rank.
Probably the latter, and a real Upper Moon wouldn't have gotten beheaded even in a sneak attack after fighting Nezuko.

Man, I never would have guessed that was Ohsaka Ryouta. What a range.

Daki, however, he had to go full-stop Sun mode or whatever you want to call it to overwhelm her, and that's after training for a few months on Sun Breathing.

So really, it's just that Uzui is much stronger than her.
She's definitely strong, but when I say weak, I mean for an Upper. Those guys are supposed to be almost impossible to beat even for Hashiras. In fact, we know she killed 7 of them, but not if it was with her brother's help or by herself. She certainly took the credit for herself.

It's really hard to say since we've only really seen the power of Upper Three and Lower One when it comes to that general power block.

And as far as Hashira go, we've only really seen Kyojuro go all out, along with Shinobu and Tomioka half-assing.

Is he/she a big Bleach fan? The cited inspirations are JoJo, Naruto, Bleach, and Gintama. Gintama is the one he/she really admired.

What frustrates me that I feel like I have seen JoJo and Crayon Shin-chan mentioned as his/her two favorites, but can't seem to find it anywhere. Maybe I'm mixing the author up with someone else, but I have no idea who with. Ugh.

As for Daki and killing Pillars, the Pillars are not equal. This generation is one, if not the strongest in a long time. And it's not like Daki couldn't have sneak killed past Pillars, or they even went for some sexual services with Warabihime-oiran, then head rolls. Not to mention how Uzui encountered the already battered up Daki who had trouble regenerating. She is not that weak, but Gyuutarou is the default Upper Moon Six and the superior fighter, while Daki is like an organic link, an extension of his power, an outer cover.

Just wait for the next episode and that question should answer itself.

It's just insane think about what Ufotable turned a few pages into.

They did a bit of setup at the beginning of the ep, which is to be expected. Had to get all of the mundane elements that would stop the flow of the fight out of the way, so it was good that Uzui mentioned the way to defeat them(decapitating them both at the same time) and moving the civilians out of the way. This allowed the latter half to just be pure battle, and what a great battle it was too =03. Not to mention that cliffhanger D0=! Though we are still due "the antagonists' sob story", the next episode should be full-on fighting as well. Can't wait (^,^ )!

Yeah, same. I initially thought it was Akira Ishida for sure, until I read the ANN article about it well after the episode.

I personally thought Ufotable tried way too hard for that last battle sequence and it ended up being a total mess. Sure, it looked impressive, but I could barely tell what the fuck was happening.

Got some good information in this episode. Daki did kill 7 Hashiras by herself, but Gyutaro killed more than twice that amount. And this time Uzui beheaded her fair and square, while having to deal with her brother to boot, so she's indeed weak compared to him, and so were the Hashiras she met, I guess. Tanjiro is still nowhere close to Hashira level, even in Super Demon Slayer mode.
An interesting tidbit was Uzui mentioning that young looking guy became a Hashira only two months after first picking up a sword. Sounds insane.

And Zenitsu really should stay asleep all the time.

I thought the action was really well done, followed it easier than the train arc and it was just Rengoku and the other standing there just trading blows with eachother with a bunch of lights.

Wonder when it be Inosuke's turn to get an upgrade, he's just been the same the whole series so far

Such an infuriating show to watch when you don't have all the episodes.

i think it would be really nice if ufotable just went the heaven's feel route, and just started making movie formats of the upcoming arcs. The fight sequence at the end, the budget was to me movie-tier, I don't think any other tv series episode has that kind of polished high impact action happening.

I mean, if ya got it, flaunt it. If any franchise ever should have an insane budget it's this one - it's the cash cow that gives golden milk. And let's be honest, Kimetsu needs that extra push - the story and characters are fine but really doesn't pack that much of a punch.

The Infinity Train arc consisted of 13 chapters. Got a 2 hours long movie.
Post-Infinity Train and the Red Light District are 31 chapters. About 4 hours in the anime.

Considering the next arc is about the same length as the current arc, there is no way they will be making a 4 hours long movie. And screw the idea of cutting the arc to two parts with a year difference in airing.

Earliest, the adaptation would be complete around March of 2025 by their current pacing. With multiple movies format however, it could even stall the anime for 6-7 years.

The newest ep's ending situation.

Having not read the manga, waiting for next week will really be hard. One of the better episodes and cliffhangers I've seen. *chef's kiss*

At this rate for the past few episodes, I wonder whether the word, "budget", exists now for this series. It's just ufotable showing us the money now.
