Breakdown of the fight so far (just the aspects that stuck out to me when scanning the old chapters):
  • Muzan showed up with his new form in 180.
  • Encountered Tanjiro in 181.
  • Started whipping in 182.
  • We are on 193 and he has been whipping ever since. (with two flashback chapters in the middle)
  • Pulled out the special back whips in 184 after being brought outside by MVP Yushiro. (Looking back on the chapters, I think that was meant to be his big escalation moment)
  • Nezuko was shown running to the fight in the cover of 189.
  • Kids showed up in 190.
  • Everyone was downed in 191 and Tanjiro returned.
I need this dude to lose and this fight to end asap. I'm tired of it. We've had more than a volume's worth of him just whipping people and between how boring his fighting style is, that much of the swordplay not involving Gyomei inherently blends together and how now all the sword users have just been deflecting whips on a flat fighting arena the whole time, it has simply not been an interesting fight to watch unfold for this long. It would be nice if he somehow pulled out an art and finished the fight strong but it would have to be quite the power to make up for all this.

The fight is helped by how all the individual steps of the fight have not actually taken that long, in terms of stage/fighter transitions, but man it's crazy to think Muzan has just been whipping across all of them.

At this point, I would have preferred if Kokushibo was somehow the final opponent.

I found it interesting how he noted that Tanjiro turned his blade red without the help of Nezuko, has anything like that been mentioned before?

You mean did someone say Nezuko should be able to help Tanjiro with that?
If so I don't recall but in the recent chapters we've seen that turning the blade red can happen by heating it up and Nezuko's blood burns things so that's probably what he was referring to.

I hope that if this fight ever gets animated someone replaces the whip sounds with the CLANG sounds from the Berserk Anime. I can feel the comedic value already.

Imagine if every chapter from here on out is a minute in fight time. That's one way to get to 250+ chapters.

There is an alternate reality out there in which Muzan transforms into a crazier and more messed up and dangerous form every chapter just because he can.

Really? Damn feels like a lot longer
She was on the cover of 189 and we're on 193 so counting the rest of 189, it's been 5 chapters. There being a Jump break between 189 and 190 probably contributes to it feeling like it's been a while.

(This fight in general has not been helped by there being two Jump holiday breaks in the middle of it, making it seem like it's taking longer than it is.)

To think Giyu is one of precious few who got a chance to face the actual best demon. Gotta love it.
