Forget to breathe into the battle scene of the sound pillar, the kamaboko corps, and the land of the first string!
On January 23, 2022, the 8th episode “Gathering” of the TV anime “Kimetsu no Yaiba Yukaku Hen” was broadcast. Finally, the three Sumijiro and all of the sound pillars, Umeda Tengen, have joined together, and the battle with the land of the first string has begun. The drawing that everyone gets mixed up has become a trend on Twitter. We look back on the highlights of episode 8.
The past of Umeda revealed
In front of the land of the first string, Daki, and Gyutaro, Umeda stands alone while being invaded by the poison of the sickle of the prostitute Taro. Here I saw a surprising side of him.
Umeda was born and raised in the world of ninja. His nine brothers, sisters, and sisters died, except for one of his younger brothers, who grew up like an inorganic machine. Umeda, who cannot forgive the human nature of such a ninja, escapes from the ninja’s path and enters the demon slaughter corps.
From the brutal battle path, Umeda chose to fight against a mighty enemy called a demon. He chose the path of increasing harshness “to protect human life.” His expression when the choice was affirmed by the master of the mansion, Kagaya Ubuyashiki, shows the constant conflict so far.
In the main story, it was also drawn that he thought, “I have no talent” in the pillar—a line of humility and a single-minded figure that still looks forward. Behind the “festival god” that exaggerates the flashiness, a man who is more severe than I imagined was hidden. I’m in love with you like this. The interaction with Purgatory after the ED has also come a long way.
God drawing that is trending on Twitter
In the 8th episode, the topic was the divine drawing of the battle scene that worried the viewers, saying, “The drawing team is burning their lives …!”. The dizzying offensive and the defensive battle are drawn with full use of CG. Isn’t it flashy than the movie version “Infinite Train Edition”? It seems to be.
Especially in an explosion, Umeda cuts off the neck of the fallen princess in an instant. What stood out pinpoint was the goodness that blows away the fallen princess with a yellow flash while still sleeping. Sumijiro catches the sickle of Tanjiro Kamado at the last minute and dodges it in an attempt to help Umeda, who fights hard while the poison turns.
It was nice that the battle scene, which was the last minute between life and death, was complemented by the depiction of the original with beautiful drawings. At the end of the game, Hinazuru, one of Umeda’s wives, fights back against Taro. The development from here to the next episode is exciting, so please look forward to it.
