Koyoharu Gotoge’s Demon Slayer’s manga is leading up to the series finale. With the Hashiras teaming up to take down the Upper Moons and Kibutsuji Muzan himself, the end of the series seems in sight. Currently, Tanjiro is the last person on his feet and going toe-to-toe with Muzan to defeat him once and for all, and he just might win.
Chapter 193, titled “A Difficult Door Begins to Open”, sets up Kibutsuji Muzan’s defeat as under the effects of Lady Tamayo’s potion, his body has aged 9000 years since the start of the fight.
Tanjiro learned the Dance of the Fire God from his father; however, the 13th form of Hinokami Kagura was unknown, i.e., till now.
The 13th form of Hinokami Kagura is when the user continuously performs all twelve forms of the breath style in repetitive succession to increase the accuracy and agility of their movements.
This form was created solely to kill Muzan. Since the repetition of all twelve forms aims to destroy Muzan’s twelve vital organs. The 7 hearts and 5 brains that move freely inside his body thanks to his shape-shifting ability.
Muzan was initially cocky, but on noticing that he is slowing down, he realized that Lady Tamayo’s potion is aging him. The rate is about 50 years per minute, making him 9000 older in the last 3 hours. With only one hour left before dawn, Tanjiro has to give it his all and keep up his cyclic attacks if he aims to defeat Muzan.
Chapter 194 will be released on 16th February and will hopefully show Tanjiro mastering this form amid battle.
