Review of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Episode 20: Playing House

Hi, and welcome to our collaboration review of Demon Slayer episode 20, “Pretend Family,” brought to you by Irina from I Drink and Watch Anime and this site! After saying “Brought to you by,” I almost feel like I should add “In color!” or “In stereo where available!”

I wondered how the writers would follow the spectacular events of episode 19. What happened to Tanjirou after that last strike? How’s Nezuko after invoking her Blood Demon Art? 

It didn’t go anywhere near the way I expected.

How was Tanjirou after the events of the last episode? Let’s just say he wasn’t in tip-top shape! Capture from the Crunchyroll stream

We also get to see what Kumo Oni Ane did Rui ordered her to go after the other Demon Slayers on the mountain. I’ll give you a hint: Her encounter with Shinobu Kochou left a profound impression on her. 

Find out what Irina and I thought about this episode on I Drink and Watch Anime!
