Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is setting the stage for some major trouble coming Tengen Uzui’s wives way! As the second season of the anime continues making its way through the Entertainment District arc of Koyoharu Gotouge’s original manga series, Tanjiro Kamado and the others have been tasked with their newest mission under the lead of the Sound Hashira, Tengen Uzui. It’s revealed that he was looking for Demon Slaying Corps members to sneak their ways into different courtesan houses in search of Tengen’s wives as they had gone missing and are failing to send him updates on their whereabouts.
The newest episode of the series unfortunately confirmed the worst case scenario, however, as after seeing Tanjiro, Inosuke, and Zenitsu successfully disguise themselves and make their way into various Oiran houses, the final moments of the episode revealed that it was Inosuke’s spot that has the biggest imminent danger as one of Tengen’s wives, Makio, has been caught within the clutches of the deadly demon that has been teased throughout all of the promotional materials for the Entertainment District arc so far.
Episode 2 of the Entertainment District arc sees Inosuke following up on a lead after hearing about Makio’s disappearance (much like how Tanjiro found out that another of Tengen’s wives, Suma, had disappeared recently as well), but as the episode comes to an end all fans can see is how Makio has been wrapped in a demon like scarf sprouting from an even more mysterious demon. Tengen’s investigation before teased that there would be an Upper Rank hiding within the Entertainment District, and it seems that very same Upper Rank has Makio in her clutches.
As promotional materials have revealed, this villain is named Daki and she will be the primary antagonist of the coming episodes. But with Tengen’s wife Makio currently in her clutches, it’s certainly raising a lot of questions over whether or not the other two wives have been caught in that same trap. Regardless, it’s very clear that this is something Makio is going to need a lot of help getting away from.
But what do you think? How are you liking the Entertainment District so far? Curious to see where Tengen’s other two wives are? Hoping to see all three of them join Tengen’s side soon?
