The Demon Slayer villain will make the power levels more clear as the heroes fight one of the upper six. Fans can see how drastic the power bar is between the heroes and their immortal longtime foes. Gyutaro also has a backstory that will tug on some heart strings for many fans and explain why he became the demon that they meet at this point in the show. Just like most of the demonic enemies, this character started off as a human many years in the past, so fans will learn about what took him down this path.

One thing that Demon Slayer does well is make the villains create a sense of empathy that the viewer experiences when learning about their past. The storylines are prominent with characters who are faced with tragedy, so it's always interesting to see how these demons aren't much different from humans and that they just went down a wrong path.

This weekend will debut the new villain, so make sure to check it out if possible. McInnis is a relatively prominent voice actor, with credits in Attack On Titan, My Hero Academia, Fire Force, Dr. Stone and Pokémon, to name a few. It's safe to say that they picked a very versatile actor and fans will decide if they made the righr choice.

Demon Slayer is available to stream on Crunchyroll.
