When Murderer of demons Season 2 introduces Daki, her claims about being Upper Moon 6 seem suspicious, especially after Tanjiro survives an encounter with her. Only after the anime reveals that he merged with his brother does his place in the Twelve Kizuki begin to make sense. And the two underscore just how powerful they are in the Entertainment District Arc episode 8, “Gathering.”
Murderer of demons staged a battle between Tengen Uzui and Gyutaro in last week’s installment. “Gathering” delivers on that fight, and things aren’t tilting in Tengen’s favor. In fact, Gyutaro and Daki are proving to be two incredibly powerful opponents. Even with all the Demon Slayers together, the sibling duo will be hard to beat.

Gyutaro already became a worrying opponent when he showed his Blood Demon Art in «Transformation». His ability to attack his enemies with flying blood sickles took even Tengen Uzui by surprise. Turns out those sickles contain poison.
That revelation means that Gyutaro could have already sealed Sound Hashira’s fate in Murderer of demons Season 2. Although Tengen is taking his poisoning like a champ, the last episode sees him struggling. And that’s not to mention the purple rash that spreads over the side of his head.
Tanjiro, Inosuke, and Zenitsu take up arms to help Tengen fight the Upper Moon 6 demons. But Daki is using his sash to prevent the group from getting to his brother. Keeping her away keeps Zenitsu and Inosuke worried, and Tanjiro is barely in fighting shape following his one-on-one with her. Could Daki and Gyutaro emerge victorious from this battle?
Can the Demon Slayers defeat Upper Moon 6?
So can Tengen Uzui and the younger Demon Slayers defeat Gyutaro and Daki? It’s hard to see them fail in their mission, especially with Tanjiro, Inosuke, and Zenitsu still in the early stages of their training. The anime seems to be ready to have a season 3, which means that the main characters will probably leave this fight.
That said, your success could come at a cost. With Tanjiro injured and Tengen poisoned, it is unknown if they all make it out of the Entertainment District Arc alive. Fans will need to keep watching to see how the action unfolds. No matter what happens next, viewers will likely never underestimate Gyutaro and Daki again.
