Demon Slayer: Swordsmith Village

Hello everyone and welcome back for another review from Lonely Spirit Reviews. Today, we’ll be reviewing what is arguably the fastest new generation series in anime to take the world by storm with, Demon Slayer: Season 3 – The Swordsmith Village by author Koyoharu Gotouge.

The first episode was released on the 9th of April 2023 premiering for an entire hour, showcasing the incredible art style and profound attention to detail from studio – Ufotable, setting us up for what lies in store as we finally get to meet the top 6 Kizuki that serve under Muzan.

The premise is as follows – after the vicious murder of his family, a boy named Tanjiro Kamado grows the resolve to become a demon slayer in hopes of turning his younger sister Nezuko back into a human. However, Tanjiro will have to come face to face against the leader of the Twelve Kizuki, Muzan Kibutsuji, the Demon King that has reigned over demons and humans alike for over a thousand years.

Though the first two seasons have received phenomenally positive reviews from both fans and critics, Season: 3 has come under fire, and today I’ll be discussing whether the fire is plausible or just another misunderstanding.

Let’s dive into the review.

Just as I’d expect from studio Ufotable, Season 3 of Demon Slayer begins with a captivating scene of events leading to the reunion of the remaining Kizuki inside the Infinity Castle where Muzan resides.

Even though it’s just the beginning of the episode, this scene sent chills all over my body as I stood there mesmerized by the incredible visuals of the Infinity Castle, it felt as if my soul had left my body in a state of trance and awe from the sheer elegance.

After waiting three seasons, we finally get to meet the remaining five kizuki excluding Gyutaro who was slaughtered in Season 2, and what a reunion it was.

There’s a lot of resemblance between both organizations which is either foreshadowing a connection between the leaders or simply just a coincidence.

Their relationship with one another is nothing like the Hashira that serve under Kagaya Ubuyashiki out of respect. They’re more hostile towards each other, prone to attack one another at a moment’s notice as long as Muzan isn’t around.

Out of all the Kizuki we’ve seen thus far, I’d love to say Upper Moons 3 and 4, Akaza, and Hantengu’s (Zohakuten – Manifestation of Hatred) are without a doubt the best designs this season.


Visually speaking alone, this season has been a masterpiece – it feels like a work of art, from the rotating camera angles capturing every element, every leaf, tree, and drop of water was considered with great detail.
Let alone, every signature move from the Sun Breathing style has looked exceptionally mind-blowing, the animation adaptation from Ufotable outclasses the manga without needing a second opinion.

As for the story, much has been revealed regarding both Muzan and the first Sun Breather, Yoriichi. Also further explaining why it is that every other breathing technique derives from the Sun. Tanjiro being able to use both Lightning and Water Techniques one after another at a moment’s notice only highlights this fact stated from the first season.

As for the villains, Gyokko may be seen as overwhelming in regards to strength and position when comparing him to Gyutaro, however, let’s not overlook the challenger, Tokito. Not only did he become a hashira within two months of training but he is also a descendant of the Sun Breathing Technique which is considered the strongest form of all.

As for Hantengu, it’s within these last few moments that we finally understand the kind of person he is. Coming off as weak and fragile is a part of his craft in attempts of making he’s victims drop their guard whilst internally savoring the pleasure of every kill and blaming it on anyone else but himself.

It’s a shame that we never got enough screen time between the Love hashira – Mitsuri Kanjori and Zohakuten as even though this was supposedly her moment to shine, this season undoubtedly belongs to the Kamado siblings.

About the banger of a finale this season of anime, nothing comes close to the tear-jerker that was Episode 11. From the music, to the animation and of course, the consequences that are at stake, this ending had me at my wit’s end when I saw Nezuko fall to the ground.
To vividly express the difficult situation that Tanjiro was in so clearly on his face, to the point of sheer agony – to imagine that the entire reason he decided to become a demon slayer was disappearing right before his very eyes was heart-wrenching, it’d cripple even the strongest of men.

All in all, Demon Slayer Season 3: The Swordsmith Village highlights the importance between connection and helping a person in need. It’s through our actions of appreciation and gratitude that we can change the world for the better. Our lives are connected wherever you go, so reach out your hand and give your all in everything you do.
I give Demon Slayer Season 3: The Swordsmith Village a 4.1 out of 5 ratings.

I believe Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is a work that incorporates Japanese culture and at the same time it also carries the timeless, universal concept of thinking of those who are important to you. I do believe the sentiments carried by Tanjiro and his friends have been conveyed to fans overseas, and I hope everyone will keep on rooting for the characters!

After the vicious murder of his family, a boy named Tanjiro Kamado resolves to become a demon slayer in hopes of turning his younger sister back into a human.
