Raising the stakes, Mugen Train took a scene that was already shocking (Enmu putting Tanjiro in a nightmare to break him) and uploaded it. As Tanjiro was abused by his family, fury takes hold of him and he is able to break free. The nightmare prompted Tanjiro to escape and shout, “There is no way they will say that! Never!
