Kimetsu No Yaiba Episode 4 [BETTER]
The second half of the episode was basically one tense survival/fight scene. One thing that has consistently impressed me about Demon Slayer Kimetsu no Yaiba is how well it creates disturbing scenes.
Kimetsu no Yaiba Episode 4
I loved this episode and despite the horrific sight of the morphed demon, I found myself grinning from ear to ear as Tanjiro unleashed his sword art. Also loving the animation, especially the water print of his sword technique. And what about the music for the fight scenes! Yeah! Demon Slayer!!!

Then we join Tanjiro at the Final Selection, which sets the many candidates for the Demon Slayer Corps loose in the mountains to survive for an entire week amongst the hordes of demons that have been trapped there for years. This is as good a time as any to sing the praises of the shows visuals, which have been consistently good all season, though ufotable knocks it out of the park in this episode. The colors are lush, alternating between vibrancy and oppressiveness to fit the action on screen. When Tanjiro arrives at Mt. Fujikasane, the area is bursting with purple wisteria that are literally glowing, giving the whole setting an appropriately otherworldly feel. I also hope we get to see more of the creepy twins who ushered in the start of the trial. The mix of creepy and fantastical complements the show's slick character designs and help it stand out from the usual action-adventure fare.
In keeping with standard shounen trappings though, thisepisode begins by replaying the final exchange between Tanjiro and thefox-masked boy. This type of replay of a battle that has taken place at the endof an episode is actually one of my pet hates of the genre. Worse than a recapat the start of an episode. Mostly because it eats episode time and somehowimplies that within seven days I forgot the pivotal climax of the previousepisode. Throw in the idea that our protagonist Tanjiro claims he can smell thewinning strike and I just have to wonder how far they were reaching to try andfind any novel trait to give him. 041b061a72
