I give this fight at most 2 more chapters as it will undoubtably get a spectacular color page for ch 200.
Also turns out we have a trailer for the game.

Good morning, everyone.
We are getting Jump's cover to celebrate the 200th chapter.
You know this fight does kind of drag, but it does really underscore how strong Muzan is - even weakened by Tamayo's drug, the other strongest characters in the series are just barely surviving stalling him for time.
Yeah, weakening him down and making the fight a massive group effort is quite the nice angle, if Tanjiro had somehow turned out to be just as strong as Yoriichi to go One-on-One against a full-power Muzan, the fight would just be concentration of common battle shounen tropes.
Anyway, it just ocurred to me that the Kakushi brigade are being a hella lot more useful than the slayer fodders, the guys without fighting skills are doing more than being mere meat shields as the lower ranked slayers were in this fight.
I really hope we don't see yet another effect of Tamayo's drug coming to effect.
Tamayo's drug reminds me of Gin's Bankai, which also gained a new power every time it was used.
That's not really accurate, it didn't gain new powers, he was just lying about what it's power was - and only twice.
And each time it was set up beforehand or immediately revealed.

Still feels a bit Ass Pull-ish.
And out of the Big Three, Bleach isn't the one people should emulate.
tell that to Kn Y lol
I don't think it's an Ass Pull at all. I mean, it definitely isn't because it was outright stated well in advance that Gin was lying.
He uses it against Ichigo, claims it's power is in its length, Ichigo soon calls him out and says he lied about his long it was and the speed is more dangerous. Gin then immediately thinks to himself about how Ichigo was close, but didn't quite figure out it's real ability.
And then he later reveals its real ability against Aizen. By definition not an Ass Pull.

Not to mention about 200 chapters building up Gin as a character who would most definitely lie about his abilities.
I never watched anything past the Soul Society.
Hence why I said "sounds", not "is".
We got the casting for the English VA’s of the Hashira.
Mark Whitten as Kyojuro Rengoku
Ray Chase as Tengen Uzui
Kira Buckland as Mitsuri Kanroji
Crispin Freeman as Gyomei Himejima
Griffin Burns as Muichiro Tokito
Erik Scott Kimerer as Iguro Obanai
Kaiji Tang as Sanemi Shinazugawa
And this already includes Johnny Yong Bosch as Giyu Tomioka & Erika Harlacher as Shinobu Kocho
Damn they got Freeman to voice Gyomei. Shit let’s reach for the stars & hope they bring in Troy Baker to voice a Moon.

Chapter 200 spoilers, oh dear, brace for impact.
Oh fuck looks like Sanemi did survive.

Yep, his family literally told him to keep on living.
Goddamn the scarred badass with nothing to live for actually survived over the rosie-haired cutie.
Now that's shocking.
Shit this means only 3 out of the 9 original Pillars survived. Giyuu, Sanemi, & Tengan. Christ Almighty this body count.

must... resist... urge to click
Huh, I'm surprised Giyuu of all people managed through the climax of Guillotine no Yaiba over Mitsuri. Thought he'd take a hit at the last second for sure.
Sanemi surviving is pretty ironic though, as it should be.
Wow Love was kinda disappointing to the end.
Expectations certainly subverted. Whether that's good or bad I have no clue.
No big bit of Muzan being cast into hell? Geez, that's disappointing. Also, imagine if Tanjiro dies and Nezuko becomes the new main

Given Muzan was the big bad, we may get that as an epilogue in this case. That or there's one last trick up his sleeve even after all this.
