  1. Regarding Demon Slayer, why ending on a training arc is bad? Why every series have to end in a climactic fight, can the characters just relax, cooldown, have character development and interaction instead of constant fighting?

    As for why they choose to end there, it just my guess but probably due to length of the 3 following arc. The next arc (The Infinity Train Arc) kinda short with only 13 chapters, good fit for a movie but would make season 2 have weird number of episode unless they add a bunch of filler. It would be best to adapt the 2 arcs after the Train arc into a season, the Red Light District arc and the Swordsmith Arc are both pretty long and follow each other. They also couldn’t skip the Train arc cause it contain some major developments. I do agree that the it a mediocre manga until the Spider Demon Arc, but after that it probably one of the better shounen manga, If not wouldn’t beat stuff like Neverland and MHA.

    • Short answer: it’s not really to my personal taste. If you think it’s fine, then it’s fine for you.

      Long answer: generally you want the end and the climax to line up. Having a slower paced training arc at that spot within the context of Demon Slayer being a “weekly manga that keeps going” makes sense. But when you’re working with a season-sized unit, having a full 25% of the show’s airtime be post-climax set-up for the next arc (set to air at some unknown point in the future) deflates the excitement.
