The latest episode of Demon Slayer has left fans stunned with a shocking turn of events. In Episode 11 of Ufotable’s highly anticipated Season 3, we witnessed Nezuko, the beloved sister of the protagonist Tanjiro, defy the laws of nature by surviving in broad daylight. This unexpected twist has taken the story to new heights and has left viewers eagerly awaiting answers.
Throughout the episode, Tanjiro finds himself torn between two crucial decisions: saving his sister from the lethal exposure to the sun or rescuing a group of Swordsmiths from the clutches of another demon. However, fate intervenes as Nezuko selflessly sacrifices herself by pushing Tanjiro away, willingly subjecting herself to the sunlight. The outcome is nothing short of miraculous, as it is revealed that Nezuko emerges unscathed from the sun’s rays.
Nezuko Survived the Unsurvivable
This revelation has sent shockwaves through the fanbase, as it directly contradicts the established notion that demons cannot endure sunlight without being obliterated. Nezuko’s ability to withstand the sunlight without any explanation has intrigued viewers, and they eagerly await further details in the upcoming Season 4, which will delve into the “Hashira Training” arc. It is anticipated that the show will shed light on the mysterious circumstances surrounding Nezuko’s unique trait. In fact, Lady Tamayo, an important character in the episode, had accurately theorized about Nezuko’s ability to survive the sun due to her distinct blood.
While Nezuko’s survival is a cause for celebration for the characters in the series, it also becomes a double-edged sword. The formidable antagonist, Muzan Kibutsuji, learns of Nezuko’s extraordinary feat and immediately sets his sights on her. Muzan, who had spent a millennium in search of a way to exist in daylight once more, sees in Nezuko the opportunity to steal her newfound ability. This revelation further intensifies the already existing danger and raises the stakes for our protagonists.
The recently concluded episode served as the gripping finale to the “Swordsmith Village arc,” which witnessed Tanjiro and Nezuko collaborating with the Love Hashira Mitsuri Kanroji and the Mist Hashira Muichiro Tokito to combat the demons plaguing the village. Additionally, it introduced the character Genya Shinazugawa, who takes over as Tanjiro’s support, replacing Inosuke and Zenitsu.
Demon Slayer continues to captivate audiences with its intricate storytelling, breathtaking animation, and compelling characters. The series has left fans eagerly awaiting the next installment, as they yearn for answers to the questions raised by the latest episode. The journey of Tanjiro and Nezuko, as they confront the ruthless Muzan Kibutsuji, promises to be an exhilarating one. Until then, fans can catch up on all the action by watching Demon Slayer on Crunchyroll or by reading the manga written by Koyoharu Gotouge, available on the VIZ Media website with a Shonen Jump subscription.
