There may not have been translated coloured chapters in a while, but the black and white editions are still around from Ch 148 to 152

Just watched Episode 1, consisting of just Ch 1. It was PERFECT

Artwork, animation and music I was confident of, but even my biggest worry (Natsuki Hanae's casting as Tanjirou) was put to rest. I loved it.

 

26 episodes have been slated (uncertain if single run or split cour), and the first 5 cover to the aftermath of the Final Selection arc (to stellar reception from what I gleaned). Add to the stuff teased in the OP, things will end either at the Recovery Training arc or the Infinity Express arc.

Pacing is going to be a huge question on how good it'll be. Please be good, I want Kaguya-tier good.

The first episode was just beautiful. Top notch quality. I’m expecting great things from this ones. The reception in the west, from what I saw, has been amazing. People on all forms of social media loving the first episode.

The coloured versions of Ch 148 to 156 are now up on the web:

https://mangadex.org/chapter/599403

 

Akaza fight has been great, though it would've been nice for it to go a bit longer.

In other news, Episode 4 depicts the Final Selection. Breath of Water is absolutely stunning, such a good adaptation so far

But the real proving grounds will be Episode 6 to 9, to see how Ufotable will handle the awkward pacing of the original chapters

Watched Episode 6, which covers Tanjirou's first mission

 

While this episode is arguably slow, covering 2 out of 4 chapters spent on the mission, I liked how it's handle

We got a proper goodbye with Urokodaki, more details in the scenario for depicting the modernising Taisho vibe, more suspense horror with the demon hunting its prey and expositions are better ordered. Specifically, I liked how it fleshed out things that've been glossed over, since this was around the time when Gotouge-sensei had to rush a few things to minimise risk of axing.

Plus, it would personally irk me for his first mission to come across as some kind of one and done deal were it to all be over in one episode.

 

Tanjirou and Nezuko are still awesome though.

Ch 157 and 159 now in colour

https://mangadex.org/chapter/611385

 

Breath of Flowers looks gorgeous in colour

 

Doubt Douma will fall easily

Episode 7 and 8's depiction of Taisho era Asakusa looked amazing and atmospheric

The gag faces are slowly seeping into the Anime too, and in spite of the more structured art style here, they don't break the mood at all

Also, Natsuki Hanae has been great so far as Tanjirou, selling him on all his appeal, from courageous to intellectual to gentle to astonishment

Coloured chapters now up to 162

https://mangadex.org/chapter/642284/1

 

The latest chapter reminds me of Gash Bell and the intense finishers of its fights with the final desperate attacks

 

---

 

Episode 11 has at last brought in Zenitsu and Inosuke to the fore. Eager to see their Breaths animated

Cour 1 is set to end off with the Drum House arc, predictably.

Chapter 163 Coloured

https://mangadex.org/chapter/646241/1

 

And thus, Douma has been vanquished. While I would've liked to have an arc solely dedicated to defeating him, this victory is still well-deserved.

Douma certainly lives up to being Upper Moon Two. His stamina seemed limitless, and his ice attacks are wide-ranged and can disable Breath users, and can even create multiple clones that fight just as well as he does.

His one mistake in this battle is that he toyed with his opponents for far too long. Had he taken it more seriously, the battle would've ended early.

 

Shinobu managed to get the last laugh. I like her idea of ingesting poison for a whole year for this very day, and that she collaborated with Tamayo in the few months they met in order to make it even more lethal.

I really would've liked to see this happen on screen.

Rest in peace.

 

I liked that Kanao and Inosuke got their fair share of development. In particular, I appreciated the spotlight on Kanao's growing character and her fancy fighting style. Seriously, Breath of Flowers looked awesome in colour.

Pity that she's close to blind in one eye. Fortunately, it's just one eye, since it would be a real shame for her to completely lose her super sense.

Episode 12 had aired. Ufotable's Breath of Lightning looked absolutely amazing, between the yellow-green lightning dash, the residue arching electricity after the slash, and the final flash of light before the sword completely sheathes. A complete upgrade from the manga

Ch 164 and 165 now coloured

https://mangadex.org/chapter/655941

 

As expected, Nakime's powers are absolutely prankster-like, what with dimensional powers inside the Infinity Fortress

 

Things are not boding well for Tokitou

Episode 13 was stretched to oblivion, it's terrible

Episode 14, while also stretched, works better because it's a downtime moment. Tanjirou vs Inosuke got a complete upgrade, and Zenitsu's first sight of Nezuko is absolute gold
