Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba loves cliffhangers, and this week we all got a good reminder of that. After all, the cartoon went online with a brand-new episode, and the Demon Slayer update put Genya in the spotlight.
We got our first look at the character's new form, and it's not hard to understand why it scared Tanjiro. Still, it looks like Genya has been keeping something from us. The hero's Demon form just came out in season 3 of Demon Slayer, and it's scarier than anything Nezuko has ever done.
If you've been watching Demon Slayer, you know that this week's episode showed a different side of Genya. The fighter was seen fighting Hantengu's copies while Tanjiro took care of his own problems.
Nezuko's brother did, of course, show us a new Sun Breathing method, and the animation was perfect. Fans were excited to see Genya's new look, but everything came crashing down when Demon Slayer ended on a cliffhanger.
So, if you want to know where this form came from, the Demon Slayer comic has already done that. It turns out that Genya has a special skill that lets him eat parts of demons without getting sick. Thanks to a number of special organs for digesting food,
When Genya eats demon meat, he can break it down and get demonic powers. Genya can even take on some of the traits of the people he eats. This is shown later in Demon Slayer when Genya meets more of the Upper Moons.
Yes, Genya, like Nezuko, does get his own Blood Demon Art at some point in his demon training.
Genya's full power has finally been shown in the Demon Slayer anime, and Tanjiro is sure to have questions. Genya's demon form is very scary because everything about him changes, from his eyes to his hair. Still, the questions will have to wait until the threat to the Swordsmith Village is taken care of, so Tanjiro should try to keep his questions to himself until then.
If you haven't seen all of the episodes of the cartoon Demon Slayer, you can watch them all at once on Hulu or Crunchyroll. Demon Slayer, the comic, came to an end a few years ago. Viz Media makes it possible to read the whole Demon Slayer manga on your computer or in print.
