Demon Slayer Season 3 Episode 5 Spoilers and What to Expect in Episode 6
Hantengu’s many forms prove to be a challenge for Tanjiro, but he discovers a new ability when Nezuko coats his sword with her blood: it sets the sword ablaze with a red flame. This gives him a massive advantage and he manages to behead 3 of Hantengu’s forms, with Genya ripping off the head of a 4th, although, in the end, he turns to reveal he has taken on demonic characteristics in the process.
Muichiro fights Gyokko but quickly finds himself trapped in a water prison after fending off the attacks of Gyokko’s needle-spewing fish. Mitsuri joins the fray, rescuing the village chief among others, taking down an especially beastly fish monster by destroying the vases on its back. The team hasn’t fully taken advantage yet, but there’s hope.
In Episode 6, however, we’ll find that there are still forms of Hantengu that are quite powerful and must be sought out by Tanjiro and Genya. Genya is revealed to be okay but wants to be the one to take down this Upper Rank, asserting his wish to be a Hashira, despite his insecurities about not being able to use Breathing Styles like other Demon Slayers.
But the Chapters end with a confrontation with Hantengu’s most powerful form yet, Zohakuten, the manifestation of Hatred. It’ll be exciting to see this powerful form brought to life in the anime!
