The fight between Muichiro and Gyokko to continue in Demon Slayer Season 3 Episode 9.

Demon Slayer Season 3 has been a treat for the eyes of every fan of the franchise. As the series' new season moves toward the latest episode, we can't wait to talk about its exact release schedule.

The previous episode showed us what our beloved Mist Hashira had to endure in childhood. It's not easy to live without parents at any stage of life, but Muichiro had to let his parents go when he was just 10. He was left behind with a sharp-tongued twin brother Yuichiro, who always used to ridicule him. Even though the episode was a bit slow, the animation was the thing that kept every fan invested in it till the end.

Demon Slayer Season 3 Episode 8 focusses on Muichiro's backstory

At the beginning of episode eight, we see an injured Muichiro removing all the poisonous needles from his body. A few minutes later, we see a young Muichiro helping his father cut down the trees (it was part of his father's job). On one stormy night, his mother's health started deteriorating, so his father went out to bring herbs to cure her illness. However, he never returned, so Muichiro lost both his parents that night.

Muichiro had to stay with his elder twin brother Yuichiro, who was pretty harsh with him. One day, the brother-duo was approached by the Demon Slayer Corps' leader's wife, who asked them to join the army of the demon warriors, but Yuichiro rejected the offer and asked her to leave. Muichiro was excited discovering that he and Yuichiro were the descendants of Swordsmen, so he wanted to join the forces and kill the demons around. Seeing Muichiro's excitement, Yuichiro ridiculed him and that was the last day the twin brothers spoke to each other.

One day, a demon entered their house and when he was about to attack Muichiro, Yuichiro came in between and lost one of his arms at the hands of the devil. Muichiro gets filled with rage and ends up killing the monster but he couldn't remember how did he kill him. Even though he finished the demon, he couldn't save Yuichiro.
