 Demon Slayer Season 4 Episode 3 Focuses on Hashira's training

 Demon Slayer Season 4 Episode 3 finally gets the show on the road and gets to the main point of the arc: training. Tanjiro, who has been recovering for so long, finally joins Hashira's training and immediately gets to work showing the other participants the way forward. Half of the episode plays it up for comedic effect, while the other half inspires new members of the corps who have never fought and survived an Upper Moon demon like Tanjiro. The episode is better paced than its predecessors. It also radiates positive energy. Some of that optimism surprisingly comes from the stoic Hashira, who feels uneasy about the silence and the coming storm.

After a slow start, Demon Slayer Season 4 is finally back to its regular schedule doing what it does best. Specifically pushing characters to their physical and mental limits to get the most out of them. Traditionally, Demon Slayer had a demonic encounter that acted as a catalyst for an episode or season. Demon Slayer Season 4, Episode 3 tackles this challenge differently by having Tanjiro lead by example rather than fight. The episode begins with the former Sound Hashira, Tengen Uzui, training a group of young demon slayers and putting them through a grueling physical training regimen to help increase their stamina. To his disappointment, none of his students showed the mental or physical strength to complete the course. It is only with the arrival of Tanjira that the supporting cast of unnamed interns are given the motivation to push themselves.

Naturally, the training scenes are the liveliest part of this episode. A healthy mix of sword action and spirited confrontations enhance the flow of the episode. Since the training itself was trivial, the episode went out of its way to add some mock battles that immediately improved the original manga story. There are even other scenes where Tanjiro talks to Tengen's wives, and their warm exchanges add an emotional charge to the episode. However, there are also scenes that have no relation to the story at hand and hinder any momentum the story is trying to build. The episode occasionally interrupts Snake and Hashira's conversation about a mysterious castle they discovered in the forest as they suddenly prepare for a duel. But this episode never shows a fight or goes deeper into the mystery of the Infinite Castle, so all this build-up feels strangely out of place.

There isn't much tension in the plot of the episode, except for one scene where two demon slayers are patrolling a nearby town and one of them decides to prank the other. Although it is a funny moment, the haunted building and dark atmosphere almost made the audience believe that they are being chased by a demon. Viewers expecting a truly tense standoff or a truly clever subversion of expectations will walk away disappointed. For the most part, Demon Slayer Season 4 Episode 3 is a quiet episode, with the only decibel sounds coming from an excited Tanjiro and a heated Tengen yelling at each other. But other than that, this episode made it clear that the latest arc of the anime is still a work in progress. The episode tried to build some tension and anticipation of what was to come, but refrained from going too deep at the last minute.

Tanjiro Kamado proves that he is the heart of the Demon Slayer

Demon Slayer Season 4, Episode 3 shows why Tanjiro is the big, beating heart of anime. Even though it was just a simple training arc without a big bad guy to take care of, Tanjiro completed every task given to him with a bright smile and hope in his eyes, with the same enthusiasm for everything he does. The episode shows more than it tells, as it throws the wild Tanjiro into a group of young boys who then watch him complete one task after another with ease. Tanjiro even broke bread with them despite being probably one of the most powerful and popular guys. His actions and skills with the blade instill in them the one thing they lack and that is hope. Just like in the previous episode with Giyu Tomioka, Tanjiro put on a steadfast face and poured his heart and soul into everything, whether it was an eating contest or a sword fight with a wooden practice bokken in hand.

Tanjiro's voice actor, Natsuki Hanae, perfectly underlines the character's optimistic outlook on life. It's not his growling or shouting, but the gentleness of his tone that sets Tanjiro apart from other men in anime. This could also be attributed to Tanjiro's innate kindness. With the episode offering something different to the viewers, Hanae's acting also changes with the mood. This is his greatest strength when it comes to character expression. Only Tengen seems to be the other person in the room whose voice rings true and loud throughout the episode. This is because his actor Katsuyuki Konishi makes Tengen sound as serious as possible and with as much verve as his vocal cords can handle. Still, you can hear the sadness in Tengen's voice that the anime artwork complements and captures all too well.

The rest of the supporting cast includes top actors and newcomers. Everyone is doing well with the scenario provided. Most of the interns are currently unnamed, but their character designs set them apart and give the episode a solid sense of continuity and life. Tanjiro's self-confidence rubs against these characters, who slowly begin to trust each other. This is a big step in the right direction for these previously discouraged and scared young guys. So when they go from crying and wailing to giving it their all during training, it feels like these boys are getting their character and development even though they don't have a name. The most understated result of all this is that Tengen regains his old smiling self – a subtle and gradual change that happens over the course of the episode.

Ufotable creates a relaxing breathing episode full of exercises and downtime

The reason the training arc looks so peaceful despite all the sweating and heavy lifting is because of its picturesque setting, which acts as the perfect stage for the story. The scenery around the Demon Slayers Corps HQ itself is breathtaking, with forested mountains and small river streams creating quite a relaxed atmosphere. From the diegetic sounds of birdsong to the watercolor feel of the backgrounds, the open-air workout brings a welcome visual change of pace to the normally action-packed anime. The conversation between Obanai Iguro and Sanemi Shinazugawa takes place against the backdrop of a peaceful sunset and a shrine, creating a peaceful scene where it's easy to let the characters think and reflect. As for the key art, the strong outlines around the characters set them apart from the rest and bring a manga feel.
