Here I was thinking that it was B.S. how quickly Tanjirou and Nezuko were getting powered up... and then

 

Spoiler

 

Well played. This was definitely a turn of events I didn't see coming. This manga can still be saved.

No, she's clearly quite something, just objectively analyzing their fight before Tanjirou went into that strange trance we can see the strength of the foe he was dealing with, not to mention Tanjirou has certainly trained and worked to get stronger since his last encounter with one. When Uzui arrived, Daki had also already gotten actual serious wounds dealt repeatedly to her by both Tanjirou and Nezuko, so it is not at all unusual that she would be winded down.

 

And then we saw that was also not everything there was to her, with the reveal of the brother. But in conclusion, saying Daki is "nothing special" is a massive oversight by any standard, irrespective of how on her own she didn't seem to have the power of an Upper Moon to Uzui - which was ambiguous on its own due to the circumstances when he finally saw her, even before the suggestion this chapter that she and her brother are one Upper Moon in two demons. Which also makes it a fairly flawed analysis to say that Tanjiro and Nezuko didn't pull anything unexpected there, because they did, and even in the context of the fight as an isolated instance at least Tanjirou's temporary change is obvious to recognize.

 

It just happens that *their unexpected and volatile power-ups weren't enough* to deal with the conflict. Which is more than fine, but let's not demean what they both showed there, because there seemed to be some really pertinent hints as to the importance of their bloodline there.

i'm worried about a pattern occurring of the pillars dying to the upper moons. though seeing as i don't like our current pillar as much as i did Rengoku, maybe that won't happen haha
i like that the tension is there though. we can assume that story-telling-wise it wouldn't achieve anything but we can't claim to know the author's goals in killing or not killing a character with 100% certainty.

I can see some of the Pillars dying, but I don't think it will be a pattern. If I'm not mistaken, without Rengoku, there are only 8 Pillars + Oyakata-sama left. The demons on the other hand have 6 Upper Moons + Muzan. Tanjirou is pretty much set up to kill Akaza in the future, so that's probably going to be a fight without casualties, because Akaza already did a major blow to the Demon Killing Corps. If Daki and Gyuutarou are to be defeated here, and Tanjirou takes on Akaza, then only 4 Upper Moons left for the 8 Pillars. At least half of them is going to survive in my opinion.

Well, i have a fair number of waifus too.. so im not that jealous for flamboyant guy having three wifes.. . . Wait..

Unfortunately, I believe we will be seeing a flamboyant death soon. I have a feeling that we're getting to see three pillars in a series and watching them lose so that our main three can step up to the plate.

I mean, we have the flame spot for Tanjirou, the ninja here uses two somewhat serrated blades like Inosuke, and I bet the next one will have ties, somehow, to our sleeping beauty.

I don't want these guys to die, but I have a feeling this is how it'll play out.



I don’t think he will die since his desth wont serve any purpose plot-wise like how
Spoiler
so having uzui die or another person close to them die infornt of them again is pointless ( and it will be just repetitive )

too bad.. I really want to see a full brawl between siblings vs siblings

 

but I hope flamboyant guy didn't lose.. he cherished his wives pretty well

So after hooker-chan we have a literal "Riajuu, go explode" guy, huh.

next time the fight reaches it's climax, but the extra round just started D: 

don't kill flamboyant guy 

I don't think Tanjirou is capable of even holding his sword after the beating he received from both imoutos lol.

yeah let Tanjirou rest ... the guy got beaten pretty badly (again), at least he's getting better =D

Here come the battle of Onii san!!
Just step aside flamboyant bro, i wanna watch our MC deal with this guy.

From killing machine back to little baby sister Nezuko.

little sisters... killing machines.... is there really a difference?

Spoiler
From killing machine back to little baby sister Nezuko.


She is even smaller and younger looking than usual.
 
Then we had Daki acting like a baby.
 

A demon inside a demon.

So, now we have Matryoshka demons.


Demonception?

Spoiler

I want to point out an interesting detail.

Daki's number is on her left eye, while all of the lower moons had theirs on the right eye, it was also the same with akaza and if you go back to chapter 52 you'll notice that the silhouette of an upper moon had his number on the right eye too. Taking this into account I believe Daki is not an upper moon, or just like with the sash this isn't her real body.

Good observation, her brother has the 6 on his right eye

 

@geekofalltrades : just this chapter alone shows how good this serie is. I don't care if power up are not perfect. This was just a wonderful chapter in every parts. Drawing, emotions, storytelling,.... Everything was great

A demon inside a demon.

 

So, now we have Matryoshka demons.

well, looking it up like that, really gives you a positive perspective ... and yeah, manga was saved once again 

 

now what's going to happen to flamboyant guy D:

Why did this chapter reminded me of Umaru-chan?

Back to being a baby girl!

Dang, for a moment there I thought flamboguy was making a forth wife out of the sexy demon :o

She might be up for it. Sexy demons are usually up for some kinky stuff...

That's gonna leave a mark.

Is she not an upper moon?  Daki's eyes were clearly translated as "Upper Moon Six" and I took Tengen's comments as a misunderstanding since he would never imagine that Nezuko and Tanjiro could take on an upper moon that the only way they could was if she wasn't an upper moon.

fix'd

 

also, wait wait wait 

Spoiler

Not mutually exclusive...

 

Could be due to Daki's eating habits, she is one hell of a picky eater, so it is possible her strength drains quickly.
