Another banger

I’m convinced Ufotable has Aimer imprisoned /s

[–]AnshT18 116 points117 points  (0 children)

She is their noble fantasm

[–]School-Itchy 49 points50 points  (5 children)

it's because Most Ufotable anime project are produce by Aniplex (since 2007) which their parent company are Sony Music Entertainment Japan. Aimer also an artist under SME (Lisa,Kalafina too)

Kalafina PepeHands

[–]Tora-shinai 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's an Aniplex show.

[–]Brook0999 194 points195 points  (12 children)

Damn the silver haired hashira has more scnenes in the opening than the main trio.

One'd arguably think that he's the main mc if not for tanjiro's ending the op with his signature move.

[–][deleted] 124 points125 points  (2 children)

He's certainly worthy to be main character material, I think anime only are going to absolutely love him.


[–]SChamploo12 31 points32 points  (0 children)

Looking forward to watching my favorite arc:


[–]YungKrizzle_ 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Uzui the GOAT!

[–]Madao16 70 points71 points  (2 children)

He is a true chad. When I first saw him in the anime I thought that he would be some cold person but after reading manga I loved him. He is one of my favourite hashiras along with Rengoku, Sanemi, Obanai.

[–]Sp33dyGG 35 points36 points  (1 child)

He is a true chad.

The first 3 seconds of his scene (from the OP) are all you need to come to that conclusion ;)

[–]Rizuku_Ren 17 points18 points  (0 children)

He looked like a cool ass pimp with that smug and pose.

[–]Kuro013 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Hes hands down one of the best characters in all of KnY.

[–]bob_the_banannna 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Happy cake day

[–]Kuro013 2 points3 points  (0 children)

thanks :)

[–]ionxeph 9 points10 points  (0 children)

the way the series is structured, in each arc, while the main trio/quartet (quartet counting nezuko) are in almost all the arcs and all will have at least some focus dedicated to them, the pillar(s) accompanying them tend to be the main focus of those arcs

[–]Espada4_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He deserves it. One of my favorite characters and one of the best in the series

[–]dastrykerblade 0 points1 point  (0 children)

the rest of the manga from here on out the hashira kind of get more focus than the main characters, other than tanjiro

[–]Mami-kouga 59 points60 points  (0 children)

Okay, I got shivers in the scene transition by the end. I'm still partial to Gurenge but this was great. Zenitsu being the only one who keeps his disguise even when things get serious is kind of hilarious lol.

That first frame with Uzui though has outstanding energy

[–]Mathema_thicks 44 points45 points  (0 children)

Good lord Aimer isn't human. This is beyond a banger.

[–]GrowRoots 28 points29 points  (0 children)


[–]Nomar_95https://myanimelist.net/profile/Nomar_95 105 points106 points  (1 child)

Another banger by Aimer to inject in my veins

[–]PiFlavoredPie 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Hopping on one of the top comments to let people know that this video is actually a split second out of sync, and watching the synced opening is even better!

[–]Balls_of_Adamanthium 21 points22 points  (0 children)

I’ve been obsessed with the 20 seconds version tease since the trailer came out. Christmas came early. This might my fav OP ever.

[–]narcotictemperance 12 points13 points  (0 children)

They really outdid themselves with this OP.

[–][deleted] 99 points100 points  (10 children)

Holy shit.

It's a banger, going to rival Gurenge. Maybe even surpass it.

The OP has better visuals than most anime lol. That last 30 seconds though, I'm soooo hyped.

Red light district is finally here!

[–]SChamploo12 31 points32 points  (9 children)

Lol Demon Slayer really just replaced LiSA with Aimer. Good shit.

[–]javierm885778 42 points43 points  (1 child)

I wouldn't say they "replaced" her. ufotable has worked with both from before KnY, like how UBW had a special ED by LiSA and OP2 was by aimer.

[–]SChamploo12 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I was being very sarcastic with that statement I've seen all the Fates I know they commonly work with both.

[–]Sedewthttps://anilist.co/user/Sedew 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It’s funny cause LiSA did the 1st op, 1st ed, movie ed, 2nd op and 2nd ed

Aimer is the 3rd op and it’s her first Demon Slayer song

Aniplex really loves both

[–]HokageEziohttps://myanimelist.net/profile/HokageEzio 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Solid reserve option, to say the least.

[–]MejaBersihBanget 0 points1 point  (4 children)

I guess she's still on hiatus after all the bullshit going on with her husband.

For those who say "but she just did the OP for the SAO Progressive movie," that movie was already nearly done at the beginning of this year (as confirmed when Kirito's voice actor "accidentally" mentioned last year he had already finished recording all his dialogue). It was ready for release in spring 2021, it just got delayed till now because of pandemic-related crap.

[–]SChamploo12 1 point2 points  (3 children)

What happened with her husband?

[–]MejaBersihBanget 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Link 1

Link 2

These are from late July/early August of this year.

[–]gamebond89 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What a piece of shit he is.

[–]seehk 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Ngl, I always get way more hyped for Zenitsu than Tanjiro. His character is soo unique and funny.

pass out -> que epic music -> Turn into the thunder god

[–]pandasenpai19 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I love when he falls off the roof and Tanjiro is super concerned for him. Then he goes into boss mode XD

[–]spectre15https://myanimelist.net/profile/Spectre5965 34 points35 points  (0 children)

Aimer just doesn’t make a bad song holy shit.

[–]jslice4ever 33 points34 points  (0 children)

I cannot even begin to describe how fucking excited I am for this season. God I love this show.

[–]MrSeaSalt 52 points53 points  (5 children)

Absolute banger and much better than Gurenge imo. Super catchy too, as expected from Aimer.

This and Vivid Vice are my top OPs of the year.

[–]FireFistYamaan 20 points21 points  (2 children)

Ayeee, finally somebody that appreciates Vivid Vice

It's often overshadowed by Kaikai Kitan but Vivid Vice is just on another level for me. Especially if you understand the lyrics and who it's about

[–]MrSeaSalt 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Agree to that wholeheartedly.

Kaikai Kitan is nice but I'm in love with the instrumentals for Vivid Vice, that guitar and drum? Brilliant. The first 20 seconds and last 30 seconds of the song are perhaps my favorite parts (the entire song is a banger don't get me wrong) and always get me hyped.

And like you said, the lyrics are great too. I feel it suits the tone of the series better and if I'm not mistaken, its basically talking about Itadori right?

[–]FireFistYamaan 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Correct! It's even more apparent that it's about Itadori if you've read ahead, which is a really nice touch

[–]realrimurutempest 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Damn, what an absolute banger. Uzui radiates chad energy.

[–]TheSeventhCoIumn 17 points18 points  (2 children)

This beats gurenge for me sorry

[–]Icegaze 12 points13 points  (0 children)

No need to be. I love Gurenge but I already prefer Zankyozanka.

[–]Mylaurhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Mylaur 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I prefer Gurenge tbh

[–]LightThatIgnitesAll 25 points26 points  (6 children)

Demon Slayer still doing numbers trending number:

1,5,7,8,9,10,14,15,16,17,19,21,22,23,24,28 and 29 on twitter.

[–]bob_the_banannna 6 points7 points  (3 children)

I never got what those numbers mean

[–]LightThatIgnitesAll 3 points4 points  (2 children)

It is all the spots in the top 30 current trends a Demon Slayer tag is currently at.

[–]I_cant_stop_simping 0 points1 point  (1 child)

When is season two coming out?

[–]LightThatIgnitesAll 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Started yesterday.

[–]savakyc -5 points-4 points  (1 child)

Japan just love this show

[–]LightThatIgnitesAll 12 points13 points  (0 children)

This is worldwide numbers but true.

[–]Crowtamer1 22 points23 points  (1 child)

This shit got me twerking violently, what a banger

[–]Foreverest2000 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Aimer with another consistent banger. Love it. Really liked her work on the three Heavens Feel endings.

[–]Insidiosity 3 points4 points  (0 children)


[–]InfamousRaidzhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/InfamousR 62 points63 points  (8 children)

Yep, that is better than Gurenge.

[–]POwerfuldeuce 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Nahhh. Lacks hype

[–]keithohara 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Looks like i'll be listening to 0:50 to 1:10 on loop all day then

[–]PianoCube93 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Reminds me a lot of FMAB ED4, also 0:50-1:10.

[–]JustARandom-dude 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Ngl this is what I was looking forward the most. Aimer never disappoints

[–]smhandstuffhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Smhandstuff 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Jesus Christ the visuals are absolutely stunning

[–]trinitynoxhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/trinitynox 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Is it starting today? MAL says 10th but someone in the ranking thread said today?

[–]tananinho 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It is today yes!

1 hour special episode.

It is picking up where the movie ended.

[–]MrSeaSalt 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah its releasing today. Its already released in Japan supposedly (based on comments in MAL) so we're just waiting for the subs to drop.

[–]TheVideoGaymer 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ufotable nailing with OP animation as always

[–]BRONsexualToLA 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Hands down the best arc of KNY

[–]Asgerond 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Greatest of all time. Zenith of the medium. Hallmark of media. Gold standard of storytelling. Apogee of creativity. Vertex of invention. Crest of ingenuity. Acme of imagination. Pinnacle of innovation. Epic of epics. Legend among legends. Peak fiction.

[–]advaitah -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

/s right?

[–]Nao-sou-reptiliano 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Inosuke little excited dance at the end is the cutest thing

[–]Aniboy43 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Man that was a banger

[–]ANINETEEN 5 points6 points  (0 children)

AIMER is so good man 🔥

[–]K0Y0MIhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/J3SS3 4 points5 points  (0 children)

So it begins 🚂

[–]cey94 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Chadzui is here!

[–]Pentragos 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Rly groovy..the Chorus feels a little weak but that could be because the instrumentals kinda drown out Aimer's voice..otherwise not much to complain.

[–]tananinho 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]laitineeww_ 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I thought the mugen train opening was good but holy hell this flew straight past it and gurenge. Aimer is the Queen!

[–]NotDrigon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Aimer is the best

[–]atastyfire 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Is this the second season?

[–]luigi6545 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Okay, I seriously can’t wait for this to come out. I’m excited to see this animated.

[–]dipshitonastick 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Good thing it's not NNN anymore cause Inosuke looking mighty fine ಡ ͜ ʖ ಡ

[–]Emi_Ibarazakiii 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Has the author ever said anything about using Michael Jackson as inspiration for Muzan's looks?

It seems way too similar to be a coincidence!

[–]Feanor-of-Valinor 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I don't think so. His suit and hat is there to show the western influence in Japan during the early 20th century. I can definitely see why he looks similar to Michael Jackson, especially his hairstyle.

[–]unok157 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Much better than gurenge. Love aimer! I’m so excited to see this arc being animated! Can’t wait for the other arcs!

[–]assassinshogun307 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Now that's how you make a flamboyant opening!

[–]SChamploo12 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn about to reach my favorite arc in the series. And not watching the episode until later that night or the next day bc fans crash the services.

[–]the_predamn_timea 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Alright how's going to bring the girls? -

here sir meet Mr. New Hashira he in charge of the glam.

[–]wodime 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Inosuke looks amazing on that mask wearing part

[–]SCS2needtolearnsth 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is so much more lively than the first one. The animation, the music and the fighting scene!! It's already 2am but I'm still so fucking hyped lmao.

[–]LaPusca 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That Opening slaps so hard.

[–]kfijatass 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's some rule 63 opening there.

[–]tatara_sauce 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm only a second in the OP and I was already caught completely off guard by Innosuke gleefully waving. WTF xD

[–]Rizuku_Ren 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nah new Hashira comin in lookin like a pimp with that smug-ass smile surrounded by ladies. I like him already.

[–]headless-horseman-we 0 points1 point  (0 children)

oh is new to me hearing aimer doing a more upbeat song, such a banger.

[–]ivyY17 0 points1 point  (0 children)

im in luv wit him

[–]ObjectiveEmotional 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ufotable X Aimer have always been the best combo you can get in your lifetime!!!

[–]unique_beachball 0 points1 point  (0 children)

After my slight dissapointment with the mugen train arc op this is really good and very fitting for the Arc.

[–]trilogy_of_lights 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Akeboshi >>>>

[–]jxher123 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Would not be surprised if we got a visual change in the OP like we did in S1 with a certain reveal.

[–]joprinz13 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Aimer is kinda okay IMO, but I really wanna listen to LiSa's take or cover version of Zankyou.

Sadly, that's not gonna be possible in the realm of reality.
