Character Develop in Media
Within entertainment, seeing characters change within a story is critical. As an audience, we want to root for the main character to eventually achieve their goal. Television shows have more pressure of character progression than films. Within the anime industry, there’s one anime that recently is grabbing viewer’s attention. This anime’s name is Demon Slayer, otherwise known as, Kimetsu No Yaiba. For those who aren’t aware, Demon Slayer is about a young man name Tanjiro Kamado who’s a demon slayer. His mission is not to only to stop demons causing chaos in traditional Japan, but to save his sister. Within the most recent episode twelve, the progression of Tanjiro’s story arc is prevalent. In addition, there’s more than one character that get there own character development. In this review, we’re examining how this episode does well in expressing the story, character arcs, animation and music to progress Demon Slayer forward.
Demon Slayer Expresses Story Flowing Well
In episode twelve named “The Boar Bares Its Fangs, Zenitsu Sleeps”, Tanjiro and Zenitsu are still lost in a large building which is under the control of a powerful demon. This episode’s structure is very well done for as many as there are. In total, there are four-character stories that the episode follows. While this one episode doesn’t particularly focus on Tanjiro, this episode does focus on the importance of character development. Without giving too much away, the different stories show what the big picture is. In addition, this episode adds into different character’s perspectives on how the events are unfolding. For instance, the demon of the structure is trying to work on its own problems. While in the mean time, Zenitsu is trying to survive without dying. Personally, I think that this episode is focusing more on character development which is the primary focus of this series.
Episode Twelve Achieves Deep Character Development
Since the very beginning of Demon Slayer, character development is the primary focus of the series. Without a doubt, the most recent episode reflects this statement. Sure, there are four different stories that are simultaneously going on. For some viewers, this might seem that the writers are trying to focus on too many characters. When viewers see multiple character arc episodes, these are generally the episode viewers skip over. Rest assured; a good amount of this episode focuses on Tanjiro. However, each of the segments share more about the characters in the series. Episodes like these are important because they build the world and not just focusing on the main character. Each of the characters in this episode show their characteristics. Additionally, each of the characters grow within this episode producing information not otherwise known before. These different character arcs are also expressed through the animation of the episode.
