Demon Slayer Season 3 Episode 7 Recap, Spoilers, and What to Expect in Episode 8

Demon Slayer Episode 7 did a great job covering Chapters 116-117, and with the upcoming release of Episode 8, we are excited to see Muichiro kick some ass. Rescued by a desperate Kotetsu in a brilliant move where he transferred air through the water, enabling the Mist Hashira to use his breathing techniques and set himself free, Muichiro is ready to tip the scales.

However, before doing so, we see his motivations and hardened current persona come to light in the next episode which will examine his tragic past. A childhood full of trauma where his parents’ subsequent tragic deaths leave him an orphan, and demon attacks threaten total isolation from his last connection with his twin brother, we’ll see what makes Muichiro tick, down to the meaning behind his name. This explains the episode title, “The Mu in Muichiro”.

We can’t wait to see this brought to life in the release of Demon Slayer Season 3 Episode 8!
