Demon Slayer Season 3: Swordsmith Village arc Recap
Season 3 of Demon Slayer, titled the Swordsmith Village Arc, takes us on an exhilarating journey. No worries, we won’t spoil the source material here, but for manga readers, this arc covers chapters 98-127. It looks like we can expect around 11-12 episodes for this season.
Let’s recap the story so far: The premiere episode showed us the aftermath of the intense battle that shook the Entertainment District. Tanjiro, slowly recovering, finds himself back at the Hashira headquarters.
On the villainous side, Muzan Kibutsuji dispatches two of his Upper Rank demons, Gyokko and Hantengu, on a new mission.
Meanwhile, Zenitsu and Inosuke embark on separate missions, while Tanjiro, accompanied by Nezuko, heads to the Swordsmith Village to repair his sword. During his stay, he encounters both the Love and Mist Hashiras.
We witness the Mist Hashira training with a mechanical doll, and with the assistance of young swordsmith Kotestu, Tanjiro enhances his abilities with a newfound scent detection power.
They uncover a centuries-old sword hidden inside the shattered doll.
Regrettably, the invasion of the village by the Upper Rank demons, Hantengu and Gyokko, abruptly cuts short their investigation.It becomes clear that Hantengu is exceptionally difficult to defeat.
Each time he is beheaded, his body splits into new personas. A swooping Hantengu captures Tanjiro, while Kotetsu and the Mist Hashira, Muichiro, confront Gyokko’s relentless assault.
In the midst of the battle with Hantengu, who has now split into four distinct demon personas, Tanjiro discovers that each represents an emotion: joy, anger, pleasure, and sorrow.
He tries to turn the tide, almost rescuing Nezuko and Genya, but the pleasure demon persona, Karaku, returns and attacks the trio. As hope fades, the Love Hashira, Mitsuri, joins the fray.
Episode 5, titled ‘Bright Red Sword,’ follows Muichiro’s quest for his new blade while he confronts Gyokko and his twisted “art” featuring deceased swordsmiths. The Mist Hashira seems to be defeated and trapped in a floating pool of water.
Meanwhile, Nezuko rescues Tanjiro and he unleashes the power of his blade, fueled by his sister’s demon blood. With a flaming red sword in hand, he beheads three of Hantengu’s personas.
Genya delivers the final blow to the fourth, but it appears that he has transformed into a demon himself.
However, all is not lost. In the sixth episode, Genya manages to regain much of his humanity in order to pursue and help slay a fifth, tiny demon alongside Hantengu.
Sekido, the anger demon, then ambushes him, triggering memories of how his mother, later revealed to be a demon, attacked and killed five of his brothers. Tanjiro ultimately saves Genya, though he himself suffers a severe wound from Sekido’s spear.
With Genya bravely holding off the anger demon, Tanjiro seizes the opportunity to confront Hantengu.
Yet, he hesitates. In the seventh episode, it becomes clear that Hantengu’s anger demon has absorbed the remaining emotions. Muichiro manages to break free from his watery confinement with the help of Kotetsu.
In the eighth episode, we delve into Muichiro’s past, where we learn about his family and the tragic encounter with the demon that took his twin brother’s life. Following a flashback, Tanjiro-style marks appear on the Mist Hashira’s face, enhancing his abilities.
Finally, Muichiro decapitates Gyokko, even as the demon sheds his skin, revealing his true fish-like form. Muichiro experiences visions of his deceased family, though his fate remains uncertain.
In another segment of the battle, Tanjiro finds himself on the verge of defeat against Hantengu’s demons. However, just in the nick of time, Mitsuri Kanroji, the Love Hashira, arrives to rescue him.
The penultimate episode shines a spotlight on Mitsuri, exploring not only her past, where she struggled to conform to societal expectations, but also showcasing her extraordinary fighting prowess.
With Mitsuri by their side, Tanjiro, Nezuko, and Genya finally gain the upper hand and corner Hantengu as the story races towards its climax.
