Demon Slayer Yukaku-hen Shows Zenitsu’s True Potential

Whether you want to admit it or not Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba he has his favourites. Tanjiro definitely leads the pack with the likes of Rengoku, and it shows given his airtime.

Of course, there are other favorites like Zenitsu Agatsuma who are still proving their worth to fans, and the second season Yukaku-hen has made it his mission to level up the blonde swordsman.

And if you’re stuck with anime, you’ve seen Zenitsu hype his true power at last. After all, the show launched with a new episode, and it was there that Zenitsu paid fans a visit. You can catch up on Kimetsu no Yaiba anime on Crunchyroll and Funimation.

Why does Zenitsu fight in his sleep?

Zenitsu fights in his sleep because his fear makes him fall unconscious. Only in this state has Zenitsu been shown to reach his true swordsmanship potential, based solely on instinct.

As Tanjiro continued his fight with Daki in Kimetsu no Yaiba Yukaku-hen Episode 5, the blonde fighter teamed up with Inosuke as usual. It was there that Daki set a trap for the pair, and Zenitsu showed the demon his true power… by falling asleep.

Yes, you heard right. Once again, Zenitsu managed to tap into his true power by falling asleep on a mission. When Daki sets a trap for the swordsmen with his ribbons, Inosuke is caught off guard long enough to put the entire group in danger.

However, Zenitsu’s keen hearing still works when he is asleep, and he uses the First Thunder Breathing Stance to destroy the trap in seconds. Inosuke puts it best at the end by telling Zenitsu that maybe he should just sleep during every battle. And while that would make him more powerful, it would end up crippling Zenitsu.

Sure, he can access his true power when he’s asleep, but Zenitsu needs to learn how to harness that strength while fully conscious in the Kimetsu no Yaiba anime.

It seems that the swordsman is making progress in that regard, but he still has a long way to go. So unless Zenitsu becomes narcoleptic, he needs to keep his unconscious habit at bay until he can control it while awake. We recommend reading our explanation of Zenitsu’s powers.
