Demon Slayer Season 2 Episode 17 titled “Never Give Up” began with Tanjiro falling from the roof after the buildings were chopped up. He fell to the ground and passed out, all the while apologizing for not being helpful enough.

Nezuko Kamado appeared to him in a dream, chastising him for constantly apologizing and reminding him that sometimes things don’t work out even when people try their hardest.

He woke up to find the entire area on fire and Nezuko still asleep in her box lying behind him. Just as he turned to do what he could, he was left sitting face to face with Gyutaro, who looked surprised that Tanjiro was still alive.

The demon taunted him and told him that everyone else was already dead except him. Gyutaro claimed to have killed Inosuke, Uzui’s heart stopped being poisoned, and Zenitsu was trapped under a pile of rubble and left to die.

He repeatedly called Tanjiro pathetic for failing to protect his sister, rather letting her defend him. Instead of killing him, Gyutaro breaks Tanjiro’s fingers and pulls him by the hair, daring the young demon slayer to try to kill him.

Tanjiro, frozen in pain, exhaustion, and terror, and knowing that the demon could kill Nezuko and him at any moment, picked up Nezuko and ran away.

Gyutaro and Daki were momentarily stunned by Tanjiro’s reaction and burst out laughing as she crushed his spirit. The first one followed the protagonist, kicking him into buildings and toying with him like a predator toying with food.

Tanjiro then found the courtesan’s perfume pouches on the ground towards Gyutar walking towards him.

The sixth demon told Tanjiro that the latter seemed pathetic to him, but he hated him because he liked lousy, ugly things. He even offered to turn him into a demon and threatened to kill Nezuko if he didn’t agree.

Tanjiro, lingering and buying time to recover, headbutted Gyutaro and stabbed him with Hinatsuru’s poisoned kunai, masking its smell with the perfume he had thrown on the demon earlier. He used wisteria poison to paralyze the demon and cut Hinokami Kaguro’s neck.

Hearing Daki yell at his brother, Tanjiro saw himself in Gyutar’s situation for a moment, realizing that one wrong move would turn him into a demon. He was convinced that someone from the Demon Slayer Corps would do him a favor and cut off his head.

After seeing Tengen’s unconscious body and severed left arm, Tanjiro freezes in shock and disbelief. Zenitsu warns him of the incoming attack and pushes him off the roof as the obi tears apart their surroundings. Tanjiro apologizes to everyone for his lack of focus that hurt everyone, including Nezuko.

Tanjiro hits the ground hard and apologizes again for his mistakes. When he passes out, he sees himself back in his home forest with Nezuko in front of him, revealing himself before his transformation. She begs him not to apologize and asks why he keeps doing it. She reminds him that their father died of his illness, but it wasn’t his fault. Being human, they can never expect everything to go their way, and she reminds him what’s most important right now. She transforms back into her demon form and demands that they fight harder, urging him to stop blaming himself while yelling that she wants him to understand how she feels.

Tanjiro reawakens to witness Yoshiwara District in flames; seeing the destruction, he can’t help but wonder if the people living here are okay. He turns back to see Nezuko and is relieved to see her still asleep. As he reaffirms that he must do what he can, Gyutaro appears in front of him, wondering how he is still alive. The Sixth Upper Rank mocks him for his luck, seeing it as the only thing he has going for him as Daki watches them contentedly from the rooftops.

Gyutaro says he feels sorry for him as the only survivor and tells him about the fates of his friends: Inosuke lies motionless in a pool of his blood, Zenitsu is trapped under the rubble and tries to escape, mocking Tengen for being weak and dying from his poison . while acting proud. Gyutaro calls them shameful and puts special emphasis on him for carrying a demon on his back and asks who he is.

Terrified, Tanjiro can only wonder why Gyutaro hasn’t killed him yet, realizing that he still doesn’t have the strength to attack. He gives up on his question and tells the demon that Nezuko is his younger sister. Gyutaro laughs at this and says that he is shameful again for not protecting her. He stuck the kamas into the ground and knelt down to his level and said it was because she was a demon and he was human.

He scornfully pats Tanjiro on the head, saying that his job is to protect her, not be protected. He grabs Tanjiro’s hand and sadistically breaks two fingers; as he writhes in pain, Gyutaro laughs at his suffering and demands that he listen to him. He viciously grabs Tanjiro’s head and repeatedly insults him for being the only disgraced survivor and his weakness, and when he is unarmed, he goads Tanjiro into killing him.

Released from his grip, Tanjiro takes Nezuku’s box and runs away from him as Gyutaro and Daki look on in shock. The demon laughs at his crushed spirit and chases him down, violently kicking him into the burning house. He escapes before the burning debris can crush him and makes a feeble attempt to escape. Gyutaro walks up to him and insults him again for being shameful.

Tanjiro desperately throws bags and rubble at him, only for the demon to kick him in the stomach, causing him to vomit blood. Gyutaro says that despite his weakness, he doesn’t like him because he likes anything shameful, dirty, and wretched. He touches Tanjiro’s scar and admires its strange appearance.

Gyutaro suddenly has an idea and believes he should be a demon as well, saying that he will spare Tanjiro if he transforms and threatens to kill Nezuko if he refuses. Daki overhears him and rejects his idea. Tanjiro looks at the sky and claims that he has been waiting for this moment. He hits a top six in the face; Gyutaro mocks him for his feeble attempt to attack, but is unexpectedly unable to stand up. To his horror, he sees Tanjiro stab him with the wisteria kunai at the same time, realizing that Tanjiro had been leading him the whole time, running to find the kunai and throwing the courtesans bags to mask the smell of the wisteria.

Gyutaro witnesses Tanjiro about to strike and curses him for not giving up despite being so injured and weak compared to him. When he uses Hinokami Kagura again, Tanjiro’s blade catches fire and he plunges his sword into Gyutar’s neck. Tanjiro then hears what he initially believes to be Nezuko calling out to him, only to realize that it is actually Daki calling out for Gyutar. He imagines himself in Gyutara’s place and wonders what he could be if he didn’t stay human with Nezuko. Thinking of himself as a demon, Tanjiro believes that someone from the Demon Slayer Corps should have mercy and kill him.

Struggling through the pain, the High Rank tries to grab his kama and pull the kunai out as the demon slayer’s blade begins to cut into his throat. Daki sees his brother in danger and sends his obi to kill Tanjiro. Just then, Zenitsu pulls out the debris and destroys the obi. When she saw him again, she angrily sent obi to kill him instead. Zenitsu avoids them and prepares to attack while Daki mentions how she now knows how fast she can attack after seeing it so many times.

Instead, he uses Thunder Breathing, First Form: Thunderclap and Flash, Godspeed. He immediately reaches Daki and catches her neck in the blade. Daki, too stunned to react to his new speed, hears the blade rip into the obi in her throat. Gyutaro pulls out a kunai and immediately recovers, seeping through his blood to pull the sword from his throat.

Tanjiro fends them off, but is brutally attacked by Gyutar, two rushing through the district, with the former forced to go on the defensive. As they clash, Gyutaro quickly breaks down the poison and fully recovers. Tanjiro realizes his attacks are speeding up and forces himself not to let up as the demon prepares to stab him in the eye. Before he can touch him, Tengen appears and prevents the kama from reaching him before knocking him down with an explosive swing of his blade.

Shocked to see Hashira still alive, he realizes that Tengen forced his heart to stop, temporarily stopping the circulation of the poison. Still able to fight with one hand, Tengen declares to a stunned Tanjiro that he can now use his musical score technique and that they will win.
