Demon Slayer: Entertainment District Arc, in my opinion, truly is incredible! This season had not only introduced us to Sound Hashira, Tengen Uzui, but also more colorful characters in the lineup. The Entertainment District Arc‘s trailer had launched on YouTube on May 20, 2021. We were able to get a glimpse back then, but now the full story is out. Before we get into it, this is a reminder that this article will contain spoilers for Season 2. If you haven’t watched the series already, prepare yourself for some major spoilers ahead. This includes the new characters introduced, and truly incredible moments throughout the first few episodes. Without further ado, this is Demon Slayer: Entertainment District Arc (the story so far).
Demon Slayer Tengen And His Ninja Wives?!
Demon Slayer: Season 2 introduced Sound Hashira, Tengen Uzui. Shortly after, he explained he needed assistance to find his beloved wives. These women are Makio, Suma, and Hinatsuru. Despite appearances, Tengen’s wives are formidable foes in combat. Each one not only sparked a wild personality, but showed off decent sets of skills.
When watching the series further, Tengen explained he previously sent his wives undercover into the District to snuff out a Demon allegedly killing people. However, Makio and Suma were eventually found out by Upper Rank Six Demon, Daki, and were captured for a short period of time before being rescued by Zenitsu and Inosuke.
Despite their conflicting personalities, Tengen showed compassion for each of his wives. Controversy emerged following the polyamorous relationship, but this was largely ignored due to the era the story takes place in.
Daki And Muzan’s Bizarre Relationship:
Moving on to the next interesting piece of the Entertainment District Arc, we have Upper Rank Six Demon, Daki. Following her story, Daki admires her master, Muzan, to the point where she acts like a devoted wife. Not only does she willingly do what he says, but in turn Muzan respects her, as she’s known to get things done.
However, this, I’m sure, is just a manipulation tactic on Muzan’s part. He basically takes advantage of this adoration, and uses that to fuel her efforts in stopping those he fears will get in the way of his plans. What’s more, mid-fight with her fighting Tanjiro, she destroys an entire block because she was annoyed with the humans interrupting with complaints.
This not only triggered Tanjiro to go berserk and question Daki’s actions, but she also felt Muzan’s fear within her body, causing her to pause for a brief moment. However, Tanjiro is unable to withstand his newfound power, and succumbs to his pain. Nezuko, sensing this, jumps in last second to save him.
And this is where the current episode leaves us in awe.
Nezuko Reveals Her True Power:
Having saved her brother, but being dealt a heavy blow in return, she appears to have her lower half cut off by Daki’s ribbons. Despite her gloating, imagine Daki’s shock when Nezuko stands up, practically unscathed, and regrows her arm. Mind you, all this girl has done throughout the series is sleep, and assist Tanjiro in minor battles.
Not only had she recovered faster than anticipated, but she out-sped Daki, and slammed her to the ground in seconds. In Daki’s words, Nezuko appeared to have possessed regenerative and healing speed similar to those of the Upper Rank caliber. Because of this, it appears Daki quite underestimated Nezuko, as she only viewed her as a weaker demon.
Although Ufotable had 5 episodes air on Crunchyroll, so far, Demon Slayer: Entertainment District Arc appears to hold some decent structure, and has my respect for managing to withhold an amazing storyline. What happens next in the upcoming episodes heavily depend on the outcome of the battle between Daki and Nezuko. Here’s hoping Nezuko secures her first win against an Upper Rank Demon.
And, that’s the story of Demon Slayer: Season 2 told to us so far. If you haven’t been caught up to speed at this point of reading this article, then be sure to stop on by Crunchyroll to watch the latest episodes out now. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is available to watch on both Crunchyroll and Netflix services.
