The film Demon Slayer: Infinity Train has finally reached western cinema and great success among fans of the story of Nezuko and Tanjiro, who learned an important and hard lesson from one of the film's basic characters, namely Rengoku, Hashira of the Flame.

Tanjiro showed up in the anime's first season a skilled and promising fighterEspecially for the speed with which he learned the technique of water breathing, the following teachings and continuous training were not enough to save the pillar Rengoku, who died after the violent and spectacular clash with Akaza, Member of the Twelve Demonic Moons.

Breathing techniques have always been a formidable weapon in the hands of demons, at least in the narrative universe created by Koyoharu Gotoge, and Rengoku himself has revealed some to the protagonist Secrets and tricks to use to exploit them during battles. Indeed, the Hashira Tanjiro explains how to use breathing to seal wounds, including potentially fatal ones.

Unfortunately, the protagonist's inexperience and relative mastery of technology will not allow him to save his friend, who has been badly injured by Akaza. A terribly significant event that makes it clear how far Tanjiro still has to go before he attains a great mastery of his techniques.

Recall that the movie Infinity Train leaked on the Playstation Store in advance, and we're leaving you to Megan Thee Stallion's homage to Gotoge's work.
