After much anticipation and more waiting through the arc of Mugen Train, the second season of the anime Demon Slayer has finally started its way through a new adaptation of the Entertainment District arc of the series original manga by Koyoharu Gotouge.
With this new arc comes an entirely new mission for Tanjiro and his team, and they have been challenged to fight their way through the mysterious entertainment district in search of the missing wives of Tengen Uzui. But that really highlighted one of Tanjiro’s main weaknesses.
Now that Tanjiro, Inosuke, and Zenitsu have been tasked with sneaking into three different Oiran houses in the entertainment district in search of Tengek Uzui’s wives, they have infiltrated in some pretty hilarious ways.
What is Tanjiro Kamado’s weakness?
Tanjiro’s weakness is that he is so honest that he can’t even lie, without his face contorting in a very unnatural way. It’s almost as if your body rejects the fact that you’re trying to lie, and your pure and honest soul just won’t allow you to do that.
Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 2 Episode 9 He sees Tanjiro and the others sneak into three different court houses in search of Tengen’s wives, and Tanjiro ends up discovering that Suma was part of the house he is currently in, but is believed to have committed “Ashinuke”, which means escaping before paying all your debts.
To find out more, Tanjiro has to lie and say that Suma is his older sister, but as he does so, his face begins to deform in quite surprising ways. It is later revealed that Tanjiro is actually so honest that he “cannot assume a normal expression” when he lies.
It is as if your body rejects the fact that you have to lie, but even though you go through all these new problems, your lie ends up working as it is able to get more information.
It’s nice that being a demon hunter means you won’t have to sneak around and lie that much, but this is definitely a surprising way to reveal this hidden and unexpected weakness that Tanjiro has. On the other hand, in The Truth News We reported why Tengen Uzui disguised himself in episode 9.
