Demon Slayer Season 3 Episode 1

 Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 3 Episode 1 (Swordsmith Village Arc) begins with Kakushi, a member of the cleaning crew, finding Tanjira's crew after the battle with Gyutaro. Just then, a sick Kagaya Ubuyashiki says that it is a sign because it is the first time in over 100 years that a higher rank demon has been killed. This change will help them kill Muzan, who is a stain on his family.


He then goes to Muzan's lair, Infinity Castle, where Akaza, a 3rd higher rank demon, is summoned. All the remaining higher rank demons are also summoned, including rank 1 Kokushibo and rank 2 Doma. It's the first time in 100 years that they've all come together and Hantengu is worried. Muzan shows up as they all argue. He is upset that Gyutaro died and points out that Daki was his weakness.


He further berates the demons for not being able to find Ubuyashiki or the Blue Spider Lily. He adds that he doesn't like change because it means things will fall into disrepair. Hoping to curry favor, Gyokko reveals that he has information that can help him, but Muzan says that we must never give him unconfirmed information and cuts off his head. He goes after telling Hantengu to accompany Gyokko to check the facts.


At home, he tries to jump on a mission, but Akaza fights him for disobeying Muzan. Much to their surprise, Kokushibo cuts off Akaz's hand and berates him for always fighting other demons. If he wants to have the upper hand on Akaza, he should be taller. At home, however, he only laughs at him when he points out that even though he is younger, he is one rank higher.


Akaza simply tells Kokushibo that one day he will kill him and become #1 and wishes him luck. They all leave leaving Doma who sighs and is taken home by the demon Biwa.


It changes to a flashback where the demon slayer with the same Hanafuda earrings as Tanjiro is talking to his father Sumiyoshi. While watching over Tanjiro, his father thanks the demon slayer for saving his life and hopes to spread his name out of gratitude. The demon slayer says that he is not powerful because those who follow the same path as him will end up the same.


It turns out to be a memory of Tanjiro that he dreams about before he finally wakes up after 2 months. Kanao finds him awake and happy to have finally recovered from the battle. Just then, Goto, Kakushi, who first took care of the boy when they arrived at the Butterfly Estate, plans to give Tanjiro a cake so that the smell will wake him up. He admires that demon slayers are younger than him but stronger.


When he enters, he is shocked to find Tanjiro awake and calling everyone in, and even Aoi breaks down in tears. When they catch up, they find that Zenitsu has woken up a day earlier and is already on a mission, much to his displeasure. Hashiro sounds fine and just left with his wives. Inosuke almost died, but Tanjiro points out that he is on the ceiling.


Everyone is surprised to see him fall on the bed and reveal that he woke up a week ago. The girls argue with Inosuke until Kanao silences them as Tanjiro falls asleep. He is also visited by the cat Tamayo, who is happy to be alive. Tanjiro undergoes rehabilitation training while Goto, Inosuke, and Zenitsu complete tasks.


He is excited about his new sword, but receives a letter from his swordsman, Hotaru Haganezuka, saying that he will not get another sword because it keeps breaking his previous ones. The girls tell him to go to the swordsman village and convince him in person and Tanjiro cheers up.


Located in a top secret area to prevent demon attacks, Tanjiro is blindfolded and guided by several different Kakushi at different checkpoints. When he reaches the village, he shouts his appreciation to Mitsuri, Hashiru's love, and the last Kakushi as they bathe in the hot spring there. He is excited that someone new has arrived.


Tanjiro meets Tecchino Tecchikawahara, the village chief, who says that Hotaru is missing. While Tanjiro is worried about him, Tecchin accuses Hotaro of making defective swords, and if he fails, they will give Tanjiro another swordsman. When Tanjiro is taken to a hot spring to recover, he hopes there will be no punishment for Hotara.


He is suddenly greeted by Mitsuri, who hugs him and complains that he is being ignored. He cheers her up by telling her dinner is almost ready and sends her on her way. When they arrive at the hot springs, Genya Shinazugawa is there and he doesn't like Mitsuri. He climbs in and tries to start a relationship by bringing up his brother Sanemi, but Genya just beats him up like his brother and leaves while Nezuko floats in the water.


At dinner, Mitsuri and Tanjiro eat a lot and are surprised that Genya doesn't have a bad time with Sanemi. Mitsuri plays with Nezuko and wonders if Genya will ever show up. Worried about him, they decide to bring him some food. On their way, Tanjiro questions why Mitsuri joined the Demon Corps and immediately regrets that she wants to find her true love, who is stronger than her, which is why she joined Hashira's ranks.



They get to Genya's room, only to find that she is missing. When Kakushi discovers them, he informs Mitsuri that her weapon is ready and that she can leave any time of the night. Nezuko bonds with her and doesn't want her to leave while Tanjiro suffers.


Mitsuri advises the siblings that the best kind of learning is through first-hand experience and hopes that they will fight the good fight. He says he'll be rooting for them and an inspired Tanjiro says he'll find a way to defeat Muzan. Intrigued, Mitsuri whispers to him that there is a secret weapon in the village that he should find.


The next day, as Tanjiro is training, one of the forgers tells him that they haven't found Hotara yet. While waiting for his swordsman, he decides to look for a secret weapon. While searching, Muichiro comes across a misty Hashiro arguing with a swordsman. He wants the key, but the swordsman refuses. Tanjiro sees another person with the Hanafuda earrings and realizes that it is the same man from his dream.


In the epilogue, it was revealed that Inosuke had been on the ceiling all day trying to wake up Tanjiro. He is moved and Inosuke tries to push him away.

Episode review

 As much as we liked Zenitsu and Inosuke, we probably won't see much of them in the Swordsmith Village Arc of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, but at least we got some closure. Zenitsu is the same old arrogant, secretly skilled demon slayer. Meanwhile, Inosuke pretends to be tough but cares about his friends.

We also caught a glimpse of the Kakushis and Butterfly Estate sisters who were hilarious and learned more about them. It's safe to say that from Genya to Mitsuri, everyone is chaotic and a bit wild.


Let's hope we get to see more of Love Hashira in the upcoming episodes because the place the demons need to go is possibly the swordsman village.
