It's Demon Slayer Sunday and that means we're getting another episode of Season 2. But it's not just any episode, either. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 2 Episode 7 is the final episode in the anime's Mugen Train arc. So will this chapter conclude with Rengoku Kyojuro finally helping Tanjiro Kamado learn more about Hinokami Kagura?

When Tanjiro finally met Rengoku, he immediately asked the Flame Hashira about Hinokami Kagura, the Breathing style Tanjiro learned from watching his own father perform their family's ritual ceremony. Interestingly, Rengoku stated that he doesn't know about the technique but was quick to offer Tanjiro an apprenticeship.

Tanjiro doesn't know much about the Breathing style since he only learned it by watching his father when Tanjuro was performing their family's ritual ceremony. However, the Breathing style has already helped him twice in the anime and Tanjiro believes there is more to learn about the technique.

Although Rengoku himself doesn't know anything about Hinokami Kagura, he points out that mastering Flame and Water Breathing is a sure way to eventually become a Hashira. This could be the reason why he offered Tanjiro an apprenticeship in the first place.

As mentioned, Rengoku is not familiar with the Breathing style. However, he somehow made it possible for Tanjiro to learn more about Hinokami Kagura. By giving the boy messages to relay to his father and little brother, Rengoku ensured that Tanjiro would visit his family's estate where Tanjiro will find information about an ancient technique similar to Hinokami Kagura.
