Demon Slayer Season 2 Episode 7 Spoilers
In episode 6, Tanjirou is stabbed by the ticket collector when he is fighting Enmu. However, instead of attacking him, the Demon Slayer knocks him out so he can’t interfere anymore and tries to protect him from the lower rank demon who is desperate to save his neck. But all his efforts ultimately fail when Tanjirou and Inosuke manage to slit his throat. As soon as Enmu is decapitated, the Mugen train derails, and all its compartments disintegrate, leaving passengers and Tanjirou injured.
The protagonist focuses his breathing on fixing his stabbing wound when Rengoku arrives and helps him properly use the technique. However, he has barely recovered when the higher rank three demon, Akaza, shows up. He immediately goes after Tanjirou and tries to kill him, but the Flame Hashira slices his hand with his katana. The demon is hardly bothered by the counterattack, and he immediately regenerates.
Akaza is impressed by Rengoku’s inner strength and asks the Demon Slayer to become like him. The Flame Hashira refuses to gain immortality and the strength that demons have, arguing that the ephemeral existence of human beings gives life meaning and should not be seen as a weakness. The two begin to fight each other, and it soon becomes clear that Akaza is far superior in combat compared to Rengoku, who can barely hurt the demon.
The higher rank demon continues to argue that human life is short, and with each attack, the Flame Hashira’s defeat appears to approach very quickly. In episode 7, despite being dominated most of the time, Rengoku won’t give up and give a very hard fight back to the higher rank demon. But, ultimately, he will die right in front of Tanjirou and Inosuke, who are too weak to do anything.
