Giyu is meh, but he did fight the best demon.
I’m true yaiba fashion sabito will than curse him out for dying lol
pfft big z just sleeping like usual
If there's a reason, I forgot it as well. I think him only being able to use his full potential while sleepwalking just worked out that way.
are they related at all in terms of plot/setting/whatever? or just by the same director
I don't think it had any. I'm pretty sure blade color just indicates what breathing you're suited to and Tanjiro's was black cause he used Water Breathing but could also use the Hinokami Kagura despite that (and why they also thought his would be red).
When Tanjiro first got his it was stated that each color passed special properties to the blade with black being a less understood one.
I mean, in that case what are the special properties you've observed in the blades others have beyond just representing their elements and that you're looking for in Tanjiro's blade?
Those aren’t really characteristics of the colors and if that’s how it worked they wouldn’t have been expecting red from Tanjiro since he used water.I mean, in that case what are the special properties you've observed in the blades others have beyond just representing their elements and that you're looking for in Tanjiro's blade?
In Chapter 10, it says "Each color has distinct characteristics" and I don't know what else that would've applied to this whole time beyond just yellow = lightning, blue = water, pink = love, etc.
Tanjiro's blade is black I assume just cause he was trained in Water Breathing yet was meant to use Sun breathing. From that, it might just be that black blade swordsmen are generally unsuccessful because they don't use the breathing they're best suited to and just die too soon to adapt. Or maybe it's something else. But up to this point I haven't gotten the impression that blade color is meant to mean anything beyond just what breathing you use. However, I could be missing or forgetting stuff.
Then I repeat my question
Tanjiro's blade was expected to be red because of his red hair, his forehead mark (which for him was just a scar instead of a birthmark but they didn't know) and earrings.
I’d like less explanations sometimes... red blades being tied to body temperature is kinda underwhelming, laving it to life or death situational power/aura/spirit is a bit coolerLet's be straight, Gotouge did a lot of stuff right with Demon Slayer but isn't exactly the best with the finer details and more nuanced world building. A lot of things are just presented as just being there and that's normal or unsurprising without a lot of explanation or background.
I’m questioning whether or not the it was a dropped plot line or if I’m just forgetting something.
Maybe dropped aspect, if the breathing elements were at some point meant to be real, I could understand the blades having some special properties but with all the elements being fake, it makes sense for the blades to not have anything special to them.
His features probably just took precedence over his training for the blacksmith (he was getting excited over potentially seeing a red blade so maybe he just wasn't thinking straight, idk).
World building is really one of the weakest points in this.Let's be straight, Gotouge did a lot of stuff right with Demon Slayer but isn't exactly the best with the finer details and more nuanced world building. A lot of things are just presented as just being there and that's normal or unsurprising without a lot of explanation or background.
If there were some who weren't able to get colored blades at all despite training then yeah black blades being a lead-in to Sun Breathing makes sense.Here's my impromptu explanation/defense:
I think black blades probably mean you are suited to use Sun Breathing as a technique. If there were indeed others swordpersons whose blades became that color, they probably just had to use a different Breathing Style because they didn't know about Sun Breathing.
I think blade colors are just a nod towards what type of techniques their body is suited for. Tanjirou has stated once or twice that he never really felt comfortable using Water Breathing. Then we have Genya and Rengoku's brother who mentioned that they were unable to even turn their Nichirin blade, which implies they weren't suited for any sort of technique. As for characteristics, maybe they mean in just a visual sense rather than any actual unique abilities or whatnot?
Now, with that being said, a good question is did the swords begin to change colors after Yoriichi introduced Breathing to the Demon Slayers? Or were they changing color this entire time and no one knew what the hell was going on until they met Yoriichi?
Ch.23 did explain it kind of~
