Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba has finally brought Tengen Uzui, the Sound Hashira, to the fight with the cliffhanger moments of the newest episode! The second season of the series is now several episodes into the Entertainment District Arc from Koyoharu Gotouge’s original manga series, and that means that the next major phase of the arc is ready to begin as well. The first episodes have been establishing what kind of demonic threat Tanjiro Kamado and the others will need to face off against, and now it seems like the Sound Hashira is getting into the fight as well with the newest episode.
As the Entertainment District arc continues to heat up, Tengen has been spending the last few episodes gathering as much information as he could while dutifully searching for his missing wives. The newest episode of the series thankfully confirmed they were okay, and Daki had yet to kill the three of them. Upon their reunion and seeing that all three of his wives have managed to survive the initial encounters with the Upper Rank demon, Tengen is revving up to join the fight himself as the episode comes to an end.
Episode 5 of Demon Slayer: Entertainment District arc fully introduced Tanjiro and the others to Daki’s dangerous power. While Tanjiro had come face to face with the demon herself as the previous episode came to an end, the newest episode proved just how much danger Daki really is. It’s revealed that she’s been using her abilities to capture all kinds of humans (which included Tengen’s wives) within her scarf in order to save them later for her to feed on at her leisure. But this was all in an underground cave.
Tengen figures out where this cave is (after Inosuke gets there), and soon busts his way in and completely tears apart the Daki scarf with ease. Seeing that his wives are okay enough, he now is getting ready to fight against the Upper Rank demon in full. It’s just in time, however, as Tanjiro continues to struggle against Daki and the demon’s clearly playing with him until she gets board. This means the fight is about to get even more flashy from this point on.
