The Swordsmith Village Arc of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba manga has begun a new phase of battles against Muzan Kibutsuji’s Upper Ranks, and the most recent Demon Slayer episode cranked things up a notch with the epic introduction of a new villain, Zohakuten.

Throughout the first half of Demon Slayer season 3, Tanjiro, Nezuko, and Genya had battled the Emotion Demons of the Upper Four Hantengu. However, when Tanjiro began to uncover the mechanism behind this new demonic foe, things began to change.

When Tanjiro began to make sense of things, quickly became stronger, and moved much more quickly than before, he made clear how much of a threat he truly is to Muzan’s demons. The most recent episode of Demon Slayer caught Tanjiro off guard by revealing a far more dangerous Emotion Demon, Zohakuten. The previous episode of Demon Slayer teased that Tanjiro would be able to deal a final blow on the small Hantengu that had been hidden in the forest.

In the seventh episode of Demon Slayer season 3, Tanjiro fails to sever Hantengu’s neck in time to stop a surprising new threat. Tanjiro struggles to respond in time since he is unsure of what this new thing could be. He immediately notices that there aren’t any Emotion Demons around like previously, and Genya explains that Zohakuten actually started as the Anger Demon Sekido before quickly absorbing his brothers to become this potent new type of demon.

Zohakuten, who was created to swiftly guard the primary Hantengu body, is already very distinct from the other emotions. Zohakuten actually thinks he’s the hero in this situation because he sees Tanjiro and the others as disgusting villains for picking on a small demon.

Demon Slayer season 3 episode 8 is titled “Muichiro’s Nothing”, and the synopsis is as following:

Kotetsu tries to save Muichiro, who is trapped in the water created by Tamatsubo, despite being injured by the demon’s attack. Muichiro repeats Tanjiro’s words as Kotetsu cuts himself down for himself and remembers his father, whom he had forgotten. With Kotetsu’s breath of air, Muichiro uses all his strength to let out Kasumi’s breath and finally escapes from the water…
