Demon Slayer Season 3 Episode 11 Ending Explained
As previously mentioned, the title of Demon Slayer Season 3 Episode 11 is The Connected Bonds: Daybreak and First Light.
It picks up where the previous episode left off, following Tanjiro’s attempt to sever the head of Hantengu’s main body.
Tanjiro Hunts Down Hantengu’s Main Body
Hantengu runs for his life, leaving Tanjiro, Genya, and Nezuko behind. He's running so quickly that Tanjiro and the others can't catch up to him, no matter how hard they try.
Worse, the sun is rising. This only implies that the demons are going to flee and that their efforts and the deaths of their friends will be in vain.
It's now or never, and Tanjiro must finally settle the score with Hantengu.
It’s getting harder for Tanjiro to run after exerting so much strain on his legs and feet.
That’s when he recalls Zenitsu talking about Thunder Breathing, where one focuses on the legs the most.
Tanjiro decides to use the concept of Thunder Breathing to allow his legs to gain strength before blasting them in a single breath like a thunderclap piercing through the air.
It worked just as Tanjiro predicted, and he was able to quickly move behind Hantengu's main body.
He was about to sever the demon's head when Hantengu enlarged himself to get a hold of Tanjiro's neck, once again turning the tables.
Tanjiro was rescued by Genya and Nezuko, who were able to remove him from the demon's chokehold.
Tanjiro attempted to sever Hantengu's head again, but they both tumbled off a cliff, along with Nezuko.
Hantengu, now armless but lugging a Nichirin blade around his neck, detected the presence of humans in the area.
He will be able to regenerate and kill Tanjiro if he is able to consume some of them.
But Tanjiro isn't going down without a fight. He promised to sever Hantengu's head, and Muichiro arrived just in time to give him the 300-year-old sword that Haganezuka had spent all this time polishing.
The Death of Hantengu
Tanjiro took the blade and successfully severed Hantengu's head. The dawn is breaking, and Tanjiro knows they are on open terrain, which puts Nezuko in danger.
He wants Nezuko to flee, but he can't say anything. At the same time, Hantengu's headless body is still running toward several swordsmiths, much to the horror of Tanjiro and Nezuko.
Hantengu is still alive, despite the fact that it is missing a head! It only means Tanjiro made a mistake, and he still needs to find Hantengu's main body.
But as the sun rises, Tanjiro mulls over whether he should go after his sister or Hantengu.
He has to make a difficult choice, and Nezuko has to kick his brother away to save the humans instead.
As Nezuko’s body burns, Tanjiro charges toward Hantengu’s headless body to finish the job.
Nezuko Conquers the Sun
Tanjiro weeps for Nezuko now that Hantengu is no longer alive. However, it turns out that Nezuko has already conquered the sun.
Despite being a demon, she was walking beneath it. She can also speak, though it was evident that she was struggling.
Tanjiro hurried toward Nezuko, tears in his eyes, to hug her. It was an emotional moment between the siblings and the swordsmiths, as well as Genya and the others, who are relieved to see them alive and well.
As this happens, Zohakuten vanishes before Kanroji gets into serious trouble. She reunites with Tanjiro, Nezuko, and Genya, and she gives them a huge hug. She was so happy that no one died.
Elsewhere, Muzan discovered that Nezuko had conquered the sun. He was so ecstatic, thanks to Hantengu’s efforts.
Instead of finding the blue spider lily, Muzan can now simply devour Nezuko to conquer the sun as well.
Tamayo, on the other hand, wrote a letter of thanks to Nezuko and Tanjiro.
She wrote that owing to Nezuko and some of the 12 Kizuki's blood, she was able to cure the guy Muzan had transformed into a demon back in Asakusa.
The man is now conscious, but he must still consume a small amount of blood.
Tanjiro and Nezuko Leave the Swordsmith Village
The village chief, Tecchin Tecchikawahara, expressed his gratitude to Tanjiro and Nezuko.
They celebrate their win against the upper demon moons, and they could not be more energetic to rebuild the village again.
Kotetsu, along with a shy Haganezuka, as well as the rest of the villagers, saw Tanjiro and Nezuko off.
They celebrated them, cheering Tanjiro and Nezuko for a job well done.
