Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Episode 14 Review: The House with the Wisteria Family Crest

The last thirteen episodes of Demon Slayer Merchandise have been emotionally charged and intense. So it’s no surprise that our sweet boy Tanjiro needed a break. This week’s episode felt like a sleepover party with the boys. But it was not all fun and games as a shocking revelation almost sends Zenitsu overboard. So put on your pjs, grab a hot chocolate, and let’s see what happened this week.


Tanjiro charges at boar boy who has beaten Zenitsu to a pulp and intends to harm Nezuko. They fight for a while before Tanjiro settles it with a headbutt. With everyone nursing fresh wounds, the crow tells them to travel back down the mountain where they part with the children they saved. At the mountain’s base, a strange house has appeared with a wisteria crest. The house allows the boys to rest, which they are all in dire need of. A majority of the episode is dedicated to their joking antics.

Episode Highlights

Big Brother Mode Activated: Gosh, Tanjiro just can’t switch off his big brother mode. Looking at him with Zenitsu and Inosuke, it’s like two little kids with their much older and mature brother. Tanjiro is so calm and sweet when dealing with them. Personally, in those scenes where other characters thought he was misunderstanding Inosuke, I think Tanjiro knew exactly how to get him to do some work. As a big brother he must be used to convincing or even tricking his younger siblings into doing work they didn’t want to!

Face reveal: We finally got a face reveal for boar boy. I was very interested in what was beneath that mask. So it turns out boar boy is a bit of an ikemen!

Headbutt: This isn’t the first and it certainly won’t be the last time we’ve seen a shonen hero use his head to get a point across. Other famous examples include the iconic Gaara/ Naruto fight in Naruto and Ganta/Minatsuki in Deadman Wonderland.

Themes & Trivia

Tempura: The mouth-watering meal that the boys were served at the wisteria house mainly consisted of tempura. Tempura is vegetables or seafood which has been battered and deep fried. It’s usually served with a Ten-tsuyu dipping sauce that consists of mirin (sweet rice seasoning), soy sauce, and fish stock.
