Demon Slayer Season 4 is under production and Ufotable recently announced its teaser visual. This has kept fans at bay, with many anime fans wondering whether Inosuke and Zenitsu would return to the Hashira Training Arc or not and if they would make their way to the Final Battle Arc. The Swordsmith Village Arc did not have Zenitsu and Inosuke but will we get to see them on center stage in the upcoming Infinity Castle Arc?

Kaigaku employs several breathing forms to attack Zenitsu, including the Thunder Breathing Third Form and Thunder Breathing Sixth Form.
Zenitsu starts falling, but at this moment he realizes and looks back at his relationship with Kaigaku. He jumps onto a wall and reflects at Kaigaku with his own breathing form- Thunder Breathing Seventh Form: Honoikazuchi no Kami and beheads Kaigaku.
The battle ends with Kaigaku cursing Zenitsu and Zenitsu being rescued by Yushiro. He gets into a dream where his master, Jigoro, tells him, “Zenitsu, you are my pride and joy.”
Inosuke fights alongside Kanao against Upper Rank Two Doma
Doma defeats and consumes Shinobu, the Insect Hashira. In a fit of rage, Kanao attacks Doma and they engage in a gruesome battle.
But, while Doma snatches Kanao’s blade and was about to kill her, Inosuke enters from the ceiling and defends Kanao. Doma and Inosuke start exchanging attacks at each other at alarming rates and soon he is able to slash Doma through his eyes.
Doma reveals that he indeed killed Inosuke’s mother as he gets a look at Inosuke’s familiar facial features. Inosuke vows to put Doma through hell and thanks him instead.
The battle ensues but Doma soon tries to retreat and kill the rest of the Demon Slayers.
