Demon Slayer: Let Someone Go First

Akihabara News (Tokyo) — In the sixteenth episode of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, Tanjiro and Inosuke defeat the mother demon and discover that one of the Twelve Kizukis reside on the mountain.

The episode begins with Zenitsu wandering the mountain in search of Nezuko, ending up frustrated.

Meanwhile, Murata offers to take care of the demon slayers that were being controlled by the spider webs so that Tanjiro and Inosuke can go find the mother demon that is controlling the threads.

As they head towards the mother demon, they encounter another female demon slayer controlled by the spider webs. She begs them to run away as she is not in control of her actions.

The little demon boy approaches his mother and tells her to hurry and kill the demon slayers or else he will summon his father, to which the mother looks petrified. She assures him that she has the situation under control.

The mother demon starts controlling the demon slayers more vigorously. She breaks the female demon slayers bones while trying to get her to move the way she wanted her to. Another demon slayer begs Tanjiro and Inosuke to kill him as he also sustained broken bones and the movement was causing him excruciating pain.

Tanjiro and Inosuke lift and throw the demon slayers onto tree branches so that they get tangled and cannot move. Deeming them useless puppets, the mother demon snaps all their necks, killing them instantly.

As they continue in pursuit of the mother demon, they are intercepted by a headless demon controlled by the spider webs. They struggle to find a weak point as the demon was already decapitated. Inosuke strikes without thinking and almost gets himself killed.

Tanjiro and Inosuke team up and slash the headless demon to pieces. Inosuke is impressed by Tanjiro’s ability to make strategic attacks. He then throws Tanjiro in the direction of the mother demon.

The mother demon sees Tanjiro falling towards her with his Nichirin Blade ready to kill her. She panics for a moment before realizing that death would mean her own sweet release, as she feels trapped in her current life. She closes her eyes and accepts her fate.

The episode ends with her warning to Tanjiro that one of the Twelve Kizukis is residing on the mountain.
