【Coupling Column】Vol.8 Ver. Demon Slayer (Kimetsu no Yaiba)!!




★Kimetsu no Yaiba






Saori(゜∇ ゜) “The movie, Kimetsu no Yaiba, is also expected to release in 2020! Which Couplings are HOT now at Otaku Republic… Here we go!




★Tomioka Giyuu x Kamado Tanjirou


The relationship of the two: A lifesaver and a rookie, full of potentials


Saori(゜∇ ゜) “In Kimetsu no Yaiba, the story develops largely after Tomioka Giyuu-San and the main character, Kamado Tanjirou met for the first time.”


Saori(゜∇ ゜) “While Tanjirou was away from home, his family was killed by the demon… The only survivor, his younger sister, Nezuko, ended up becoming the demon since she’s got the blood in her body from the demon. Controlled by the instinct of the demon, Nezuko tries to kill Tanjirou… when Giyuu-San appeared.”








Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Giyuu-San belongs to the organization, The Demon Slayer Corps, where they save human by killing the demons. But even if Nezuko is no longer human, she is still his younger sister…. Tanjirou begged him not to kill him…”






Saori(゜∇ ゜) “But Giyuu-San didn’t listen to him. There’s no choice for the weak. Giyuu-San insisted if Tanjirou really wanted to save Nezuko, he should stop it by killing Giyuu-San first.”








Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Without any family members alive, nobody would help him.. The only survivor, Nezuko, is about to be killed cruelly… Actually, Giyuu-San understood such a desperate situation. While Giyuu-San gave him the strict words, he actually hoped that Tanjirou will get over this desperate situation and try to change his destiny on his own. I love this scene… It’s only Episode 1 and we can already see Giyuu-San’s attraction, being clumsy and too kind…”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “After that, Giyuu-San realized that Tanjirou had potential being a warrior with kindness, Nezuko, who turned out to be the demon, tried to protect Tanjirou. He advised them to join The Demon Slayer Corps, which he belongs to, believing in their potentials.”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Tanjirou will know this later but Giyuu-San decided to take a responsibility and do seppuku (killing himself) with Tanjirou if Nezuko follows the demon’s instinct and attacks human. Giyuu-San didn’t just save them but he really believed in them even though he never said that aloud in front of them.”








Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Tanjirou, who was admitted to join The Demon Slayer Corps, said to Giyuu-San that he wanted to thank him. But what Giyuu-San said was that he only wanted ‘something he achieves from his work’. Giyuu-San, who usually doesn’t say anything important aloud, did talk to him like that in that scene… Anyhow, these two are basically kind so I want them to talk more!”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “This is what is depicted in Anime but in the original story, you will see more about their interaction! I hope they will be depicted even more in Season 2! Can’t wait!”








★Uzui Tengen x Agatsuma Zenitsu


The relationship of the two: An executive of the Demon Slayer Corps and the newbie warrior








Saori(゜ ゜) “What? These two are not really connected with each other.. Why are they considered as a coupling?”


Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Right… Actually, these two never even talked with each other in the Final Episode, which aired the other day. Then what is the reason why they’re still popular in Japan….”


Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Yes, they were connected with each other in the original story… which is before the Anime aired!”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “I’m not gonna tell you how these two created the bond  in the original… because it would be a spoiler! Even though they don’t even have any conversation in Anime, they have lots in common, which draws various people’s attentions!”


Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Agatsuma Zenitsu, who everybody loves, is an incompetent guy, who loves girls, but once he gets unconscious, he is a professional Iaidō (Japanese martial art) boy, being released from nervousness and fear.”








Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Zenitsu gets desperate, trying to avoid fighting, if possible, being afraid of the battles more than anybody, but he has kindness where he never abandons his loved ones. And when he started connecting with Uzui-San… something about Zenitsu’s past, which hadn’t been depicted, got clear.”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “And this will be depicted in the future Episode but Uzui-San and Zenitsu gets a chance to work on the same duty. There, the first ones he wanted to save life, were Tanjirou or Zenitsu, who will be responsible in the future and the second ones were people in general, who The Demon Slayer Corps should save, and finally the last one was himself… Like this, he always cherishes his buddies.”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “As we can see in Doujinshi which already released, Zenitsu is a little different, where Uzui-San controls him, who always controls others. I wonder what kind of relationship they will have!! Can’t wait to see these two too!”








★Kamado Tanjirou x Hashibira Inosuke


The relationship of the two: Colleagues and dependable buddies who enhance with each other.




Saori(゜∇ ゜) “You know how Tanjirou’s personality now but this Hashibira Inosuke is just like a ‘wild boar’! Despite that they’re the same members at The Demon Slayer Corps, Inosuke would rather want the battles against the strong enemies, than saving people’s lives. Fighting is the only thing which keeps him himself.”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Of course, Tanjirou is not the exception. He challenged him, saying ‘I’ll prove that I’m stronger than you by beating you!’ since they met for the first time until their duty was completed! I really like his finger pose in this scene. Of course, for Tanjirou, Inosuke is a buddy and a colleague, so there’s no way he will accept the battle, though.”








Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Like this, Inosuke always had a big mouth, saying to Tanjirou, ‘I’m stronger than you’, but for Tanjirou, it was heartwarming to see Inosuke, who was trying to be mature, as if Inosuke is his younger brother. When Inosuke occupies the blanket and the place to sleep, saying ‘I’m gonna sleep here!!’, Tanjirou makes Inosuke irritated even more by behaving as if he was the oldest brother (unconsciously), saying ‘Of course, you can sleep wherever you want.’”









Saori(゜∇ ゜) “This heartwarming relationship of the two is so charming… If we see Zenitsu on top of that, it’s as if we were watching a comedy show, which always entertains us~!”








Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Like this, Inosuke has been all by himself, wanting to be strong, being freewheeling but… when he realized the life threatening risk for the first time, it was Tanjirou’s words which made him think that he could never die there.”









Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Tanjirou has taught Inosuke, who had lived all by himself, how important the buddies’ support would be, unconsciously. And guess what? They announced that the ‘Infinite Train’ (the duty these two challenge in earnest)-version movie will be released!”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “I’m sure Kimetsu no Yaiba is one of the representative titles in 2019! Why don’t you review and watch all the 26 Episodes Anime before it releases?”







Already now! We’ll see you all at the next update! Bye now~!
