Fresh off of Giyu laying thee smacketh down on Rui’s candy ass we are here with our boy Tanjiro tied up like a whole bitch like he ain’t just put in major work in the forest. They had my guy all the way fucked up. This episode was the one I was waiting for because I get to see The Pillars in anime form. Even though Rui was a dickhead his backstory last episode made a nigga shed the single Denzel Washington tear but fuck him though. He was trippin. Back to the Pillars though.
The Pillars aka Hashiras are the most powerful swordsman in the Demon Slaying Corps.
This episode was funny because you get to see the different personalities of The Pillars.
Kyojuro Rengoku Aka The Flame Pillar is basically the mothafucka that would snitch on you at work when you go hide to take a fire ass nap or clock out early. This mothafucka loves his job too much. He follows the demon slayer corps rules to the letter.
Tengen Uzui aka The Sound Pilar loves flamboyant shit. The type to cheat with 9 bitches at once in one day and then get married the next day and then make a movie about it. He basically a show off.
Mitsuri Kanroji aka The Love Pillar is basically a cancer. Emotional ad passionate as fuck and wants group hugs every 3 minutes.
Gyomei Himejima aka The Stone Pillar is basically Shaq in his prime but for Demon Slayers. This mothafucka is a problem.
Muichiro Tokito aka The Mist Pillar okay this is my dawg cause he don’t give a fuck about shit. He just be chillin in his own lil world. Dude not trippin off shit but killing demons. This little boy a MONSTER though.
Iguro Obanai aka The Serpent Pillar is an asshole. I know y’all think Sanemi is the ultimate asshole but Iguro is one sick ass dude.
Giyu Tomioka aka The Water Pillar is the gangsta. He all business. No playing. He show everybody respect except the enemy. He cares for people. You know that mothafucka in the room who quiet but you know if shit pop off that mothafucka will laying people the fuck out. That’s Giyu. It’s always the quiet ones.
Shinobu Kocho aka The Insect Pillar is a sociopath and I love her for it.
Sanemi Shinazugawa aka The Wind Pillar is an asshole but as you can see from his scars that kid has trauma written all over him. This is just a kid who’s lost a lot and the only way to deal with it in his mind is to be an asshole to everyone. He’s my boy though.
Tanjiro is captured and brought back to Demon slayer Corps headquarters to be tried and executed for carrying Nezuko who’s a demon and that’s against Demon Slayer Corps policy. My guy Tanjiro been out here giving niggas BUCKETS in the field and they treating him like he Patrick Ewing on the Orlando Magic. It’s a evil world we live in. But from the perspective of The Hashiras. They’ve never seen a demon like Nezuko. So their reactions is understandable. All of them want to kill Tanjiro and Nezuko.
Big Boss Sanemi came through holding Nezuko box like a taco. Held her like she wasn’t shit and proceeded to stab her through her box. How the fuck can anyone harm Nezuko? What in the entire fuck? There’s 2 people you don’t fuck with. Nezuko and Baby Groot from The Guardians. Hands or no hands Tanjiro wanted the smoke and hit Sanemi with the same head butt Q hit Bishop with on the roof at the end of the movie Juice. Tanjiro always with the shits. This ain’t nothing new. Sanemi was about to put Tanjiro on the shelf like canned goods until the legend came into the room. That legend name is Kagaya Ubuyashiki. The legend Kagaya is the leader of the Demon Slayer Corps and has a more fire Bob cut than a newly single shorty named Tameka. Out the gate you see the respect The Pillars have for him as they bow and Sanemi makes Tanjiro put his head down to acknowledge greatness. Kagaya is so Triple O.G that he makes Sanemi speak respectfully, professionally, and act mature.
Kagaya accepts Tanjiro and Nezuko’s situation after receiving a letter from Sankoji Urokodaki and Sankoji like the top goon he is agrees to kill himself along with Giyu and Tanjiro if Nezuko attacks or eats one human. I damn near cried seeing that shit cause real ones are hard to find.
Kagaya also lets his troops know that Tanjiro has cross paths with the Jazz Player himself Kibutsuji. Aint a mothafucka on this Earth that clean up nicer than Kibutsuji. The Pillars freak out at the fact that Tanjiro cross paths with him and is still living and ask him all types of questions. They should’ve asked Tanjiro if Kibutsuji is really Michael Jackson.
Sanemi still cannot accept his master’s orders and cuts himself leaks his blood on top of Nezuko’s box in order to get Nezuko to react and attack him. Nezuko hops out her box in the shadows and looks at Sanemi like a fresh pan of baked macaroni and the episode ends right there.
Yet again another masterful episode of Demon Slayer. Nothing fucking with it right now.
