Demon Slayer Reveals Tanjiro’s Most Surprising Weakness Yet

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba has revealed Tanjiro Kamado‘s most surprising weakness yet with the newest episode of the anime! The second season of the series is now making its way through the Entertainment District arc of Koyoharu Gotouge’s original manga series, and this was after a pretty long wait as the first few episodes of the new season went through a retread of the Mugen Train arc instead. But this new arc comes with a whole new kind of mission for Tanjiro and his team, and they’ll be challenged in ways they have never been challenged before.

Now that Tanjiro, Inosuke, and Zenitsu have been tasked with sneaking into three different Oiran houses in the entertainment district in search of the Sound Hashira Tengen Uzui’s missing wives, they have gone undercover in some pretty hilarious ways. But that’s also highlighted a major weakness of Tanjiro as he’s so honest that he can’t even tell a lie without his face contorting in a highly unnatural way. It’s almost as if his body repels the fact that he’s trying to lie, and his pure and honest soul just won’t let him do that.

Episode 2 of the Entertainment District arc sees Tanjiro and the others sneak their way into three different courtesan houses in search of Tengen’s wives, and Tanjiro ends up coming up on a lead that Suma was a part of the house he’s currently in, but is thought to have run away (or commit “Ashinuke,” which means to escape from the house before paying all of their debts). In order to find out more, Tanjiro has to lie and say that Suma is his older sister but in doing so his face begins to misshapen in some pretty surprising ways.

It’s then revealed that Tanjiro is actually so honest that he “can’t assume a normal expression” when he lies. It’s like his body is rejecting the fact he has to lie, but although he goes through all of this new trouble, his lie does end up working as he is able to glean some more information. It’s a good thing that being a Demon Slayer means he won’t have to sneak around and lie so much, but this is definitely a surprising way to reveal this hidden and unexpected weakness Tanjiro has.


But what do you think? Surprised to find out that Tanjiro can’t really lie? How are you liking the Entertainment District arc of the anime so far?
