very impressive how this one started up, hopefully it'll take/keep the pace. to be honest, with all the things I've seen, some of this is actually original to me. not to mention the fun of tossing in dark as well as Japanese mythology/other I have to state this one turned out rather well. the artwork, the horror, the trauma/peril. this is going to be an interesting unfolding that's for sure.

Wow, I really enjoyed that, and it feels like it has the potential to be the best of the season.

The scene when Tanjiro discovers the fate of his family felt really brutal, perhaps because there was just so much red.
Another small bit I liked was the gleam of that slayer's sword.

Speaking of the slayer, given his "passion", I bet he's been through a similar powerless situation.

Why did the demon leave Nezuko unfinished? Not that I'm complaining; she's is cute in both forms (goddamn my weird unique tastes).
She might well keep Tanjiro from having a hollow aftermath of a revenge that has been completed. But if she goes, I will flip some tables.

Give me more.

Best opening episode of the season so far I'd say.

I think I'm going to enjoy this

I might be misunderstanding your "unnecessary", but it showed he was a thinker, as he could infer that Nezuko didn't wipe all his family when she turned.
I'm quite interested in when he'll find that particular smell again that is his revenge's raison d'être.

Aside for going overboard on the exposition, this is looking good.

I don't think his ability was necessary to know that Nezuko didn't do it because he also knew based on the blood and how he found her (protecting one of their siblings) that she wasn't the culprit.
It definitely can be useful in the future. Now that I think about it, his ability might be a lot better than I considered it to be and there's a lot the author could do with it. However, I still would've preferred if they had been a little bit more subtle about it.

This was really good. There are all sorts of things that reminds me of Golden Kamuy, the early 20th cen setting, the snowy backgrounds, the mountain houses, the focus on food. Maybe this will also be an unexpected hit. From the description I knew I had to check it out. I quickly lost track of time and though it had a brutal scene (like above mentioned title) I feel like I want to see another episode.

Solid set-up for the plot and intro to Tanjiro's capabilities. And holy crap Ufotable cranks out some gorgeous snowy scenes.

I didn’t check out who the composer is but as soon as I heard the music I instantly knew...

Yuki freaking Kajiura.

I already know the source material is good and that I have no worries about animation quality but we’re also blessed with Yuki Kajiura doing the soundtrack? Sold sold sold sold sold.

Wow, nice 1st episode, to my tastes. If I have a preferred style of animation, this is definitely one of the top runners for me so far this season. Very clean and well defined, and yet colored with the right hues to give it a period fantasy quality. The story matches the show description of course, but there were enough small details and context in the first episode to give me a sense that I will like what's to come along. Nice!!

Animations look clean and crisp. Definitely only started watching this because there was nothing on Saturday's line up that interest me but definitely not regretting it. The VA for Tanjiro's voice definitely nailed the screams. Solid first episode, will definitely continue to watch as this show progresses.
