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.

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.

Forever relevant.

[up][up] 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.

Chapter 200 spoilers, oh dear, brace for impact.

  • Jump’s cover: Tanjiro on overhead strike postion, Nezuko on the side, headline is about the climax of Muzan’s fight.
  • Chapter title: The price of victory.
  • Double-spread color pages: Sanemi, Giyuu, Zenitsu, Nezuko, Inosuke on the left looking somewhat sad; Tanjiro, Obanai, Giyoumei, Mitsuri on the right, looking happy and fulfilled.

  • Muzan, so far, seems to have really been killed, and it so it begins the death toll, Himejima dies, he is greeted by all the children that he took care off 8 years ago, Mitsuri actually got lethally wounded on her last maneuver against Muzan, Obanai holds her in his arms, they confess, they both seemly die.

  • Tanjiro is on his knees, where Muzan has burnt to nothingness, his legendary Yorrichi (Metsu) blade broke, Tanjiro is completely still, he is not breathing, several Kakushi rush to his side crying, Giyuu sees this and runs to Tanjiro’s side, he kneels in front of Tanjiro, touching his forehead with his own, checking Tanjiro’s body seems completely lifeless, he is not breathing Giyuu starts crying, Zenitsu is being patched up near them, he is still alive, Nezuko has arrived, she is running towards Tanjiro, CHAPTER ENDS.

  • Still no chapter countdown for the series’ end.

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.

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.

[up] 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.

Plus, remember how in Eragon everyone cries "a single tear"? Yeah, just try that with One Piece and see if it works
