The following reveals the contents of Season 3 of the Demon Slayer, “Sword From Over 300 Years Ago,” currently streaming on Crunchyroll and Netflix.
Demon Slayer fans find themselves divided on CGI animation after watching Demon Slayer Season 3, Episode 3.
In “A Sword from Over 300 Years Ago”, demons surrounded the village of the swordsmiths, seeking to destroy the swordsmiths, thus cutting off the source of the Demon Slayer’s power. In one scene, Mist Hashira Muichiro initially decides not to save Kotetsu after discovering the boy desperately fighting against a fish-like demon. After recalling Tanjiro’s words earlier in the episode, Muichiro decides to go back and protect Kotetsu. In this scene, the fish demon is computer-generated animation. According to Anime Senpai, fans have had mixed reactions to the direction of the episode.
Fans’ reactions are varied
Some viewers, such as satimo (@/AbdouSatimo) said the CGI elements were “worse than I imagined.” However, other viewers were quick to dismiss their complaints and point out that this isn’t as bad as some commenters are doing, especially compared to other series that use poor CGI. A few Twitter users wrote that the only reason it looked “bad” was that the CGI felt out of place in a scene that included 2D animation.
Other fans like Asael (@/Asael_96) think the criticisms against ufotable’s use of CGI elements seem excessive. Many others pointed out that the CGI animation is “decent” with one Twitter user (@/mikantique) saying, “it looks really good, has the typical Demon Slayer black border + perfectly chosen filter, suitable match the scene. I’m not [a Demon Slayer] fans but this one looks much better than the other 90% cgi.” Others pointed out that criticizing a short portion of the episode when the rest of it had such a high quality of animation seemed over-criticism and unnecessary.
Demon Slayer Season 3 premiered earlier this month
The first episode of the “Swordsmith Village” season premiered as part of the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba world tour, where fans had a chance to watch it ahead of its official April 9 premiere date. The third part follows Tanjiro on his way to the Blacksmith’s Village in the hopes that swordsmith Hotaru Haganezuka will forge a new sword for himself, but danger strikes the swordsmiths and Demon Slayer when the two The High demon hunts them down.
