Pillars welcome Oyakata-sama (anime episode 22)
The bloody battle with Demon Lord Muzan is still taking place full of tension with the rotation of the continuous situation between the two sides. In the past 190 days, with the series of reappeared Japanese weapons, we thought that this would be a new breakthrough. Unfortunately, what is shown in chapter 191 is only suffering. All the Pillars and the reinforcements were taken down, badly injured.
The strongest demon sword killer currently: Lava Head has collapsed
First to mention the injuries of Lava Head: In addition to being knocked against the wall, he lost his left leg. Former Emperor Kuwajima – a Zenitsu master at 35 years old, also lost a leg while on a mission and had to retire.
Assuming this is not the final battle and the story is still going on, the fact that Lava Head must “retire early” is understandable. However, the time for Himejima was not much. Because he had awakened India when he was over 25, his chances of surviving tonight were even more fragile. Will he die in battle or will he wash his sword by injury?
Left: the main male of Kagarigari; Right: Giyu chapter 191
The most obvious wound visible in the Tomioka Giyu Water Pillar was that he had severed his right-hand arm. That makes him even more like the male lead in Kagarigari, the predecessor series of Kimetsu no Yaiba. Gotouge is known to have broken down many features in the male lead Kagarigari to divide some of Kimetsu no Yaiba’s characters and Giyu is the most similar character.
The male lead in Kagarigari has been asked to change to better suit the tastes of Shonen Jump magazine readers. It seems that the author of Crocodile still wants to drive a little bit about his original intention. If the series continues, Giyu will probably continue to fight with a dead-end arm like in Kagarigari.
We can only see Sanemi’s legs
On the side of Sanemi, the situation was not much better. He was the one who was sent the farthest away and could be the strongest, so the wound was definitely not light.
Since the battle with the Most High Kokushibo, Sanemi has lost Genya as the only biological relative in the world in a more irreversible way: Genya was born as a human but died when vanished like a devil. . The special thing is that we do not see the boy who was welcomed by relatives in the afterlife like other characters.
When Genya died, he disappeared like a demon and never met his dead relatives
Thereby a theory is gradually rekindled that maybe Genya will “bring grave to life” in some miraculous way. However, with the current state of Sanemi, only the author is saving “seeing relatives” for him and Genya. If the Wind of Sanemi dies, perhaps Genya’s soul will be the one who comes to pick him up. Let’s hope that won’t happen.
Iguro’s Spike’s injuries were also not so obvious due to the blood and rubble mixed with him, but he most likely lost an arm or a leg. Among the male pillars, Iguro has the weakest physical strength so it is not difficult to guess that he will soon collapse. But the injury to this extent is too terrible. With the physical weakness of being trapped in captivity plus the opening of the seal and the use of the red-edged sword, it was difficult for the Snake Head to recover. It seems his body has reached its limit.
Inosuke and Zenitsu even though hiding charms still could not escape Muzan’s attacks
In addition to the pillar array, the situation of Inosuke and Zenitsu is also very noticeable.
As for Inosuke, he used a dual sword but one tree was broken, furthermore the shoulder was too badly injured. The strength of his skill set is still the ability to flex, if he accidentally breaks a few bones, then performing the attack is like hurting his internal organs more.
The posture of developing the Awakening of Thunder Breath
For Zenitsu, The Breath of Thunder dominated the technique of fast sword drawing and lightning speed (The first knowledge is an extremely fast sword draw). Because blood was everywhere, it was not clear exactly where he was injured. Make sure not the leg area or the most dangerous, don’t get injured on the knee. If his knees were broken, it would be considered Zenitsu completely useless on the battlefield.
Pushing the main snow characters to the brink of life and death, it seems that author Gotouge is not afraid to swing brutally with his favorite characters. Where will their fate drift? We can only wait for the next chapters to know.
