Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 3 – Swordsmith Village Arc Review & Discussion
On Japanimation Station AND The Weekly Stuff Podcast!
We have two different versions of the same basic podcast for you this week! The third season of the hit anime Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba recently wrapped up its hotly anticipated third season, adapting the “Swordsmith Village Arc” of Koyoharu Gotouge’s manga, and as big fans of the series who have reviewed all the prior arcs, we’re here for a deep dive with another amazing season. This set of episodes introduces us to a cast of largely new characters, and is also where the story fully starts to lay out its biggest themes and ideas, before arriving at a pivotal turning point leading to the start of the series’ endgame.
You can hear that discussion - which I think is the best and deepest we’ve ever had on Kimetsu no Yaiba - over on Japanimation Station, embedded above, but it’s also on this week’s Weekly Stuff Podcast, where we also recap this week’s surprise Nintendo Direct, which revealed Super Mario Bros. Wonder, a remake of Super Mario RPG, and several other interesting games, and talk a lot about the glory of Elephant Mario, our new lord and savior. I’ll go ahead and embed that one here:
Either way you listen, enjoy the show!
