So you're probably asking whether Kimetsu no Yaiba: Yuukaku-hen is good, or if it's worth watching.

Opinion written after the anime was completed

So Kimetsu no Yaiba Yuukaku-hen marks the end of the third part of the Demon Slayer Kimetsu no Yaiba anime series. And it was nothing short of an amazing direct continuation.

Firstly, let's talk about the audio and visuals. Demon Slayer has always been a feast for both the eyes and the ears. The art is superb, with backgrounds having a, quite frankly, crazy amount of fine details, even down to the smallest details. The water flowing animation, the lushness of the foliage, textures of different surfaces, there's just a lot of details.

The lighting in this anime also feels different. It has more depth and looks almost realistic. Not sure what to call it...bloom effect? Anyways, the lights definitely complements the overall visuals, and gives the backgrounds a stunning appearance.

The same goes to the characters, lots of attention to details was put towards the characters, ever since the first season. Their designs often switch between the normal design and the wacky design for comedic relief moments which are actually really good, and in both instances look superb.

Not only the characters' art, but also their voices. Kimetsu no Yaiba has some of the most popular voice actors and actresses, who are obviously very skilled in this industry. The voices fit relatively well with all the characters, it's simply great.

In case you don't know, the amount of graphics and animation along with the characters' voices made Kimetsu no Yaiba to also gain the moniker of Unlimited Budget Works.

The story is still interesting and enjoyable, but wow, the pacing of this anime is probably excruciatingly slow! Not in a bad way, though. Each episode unfolds the story in a very detailed and meticulous way, with a lot of flashbacks. Therefore the developments really took their time.

Again, that wasn't in any negative way. There's a clear build up of suspense at practically every opportunity, and thus the slow pace was easily apparent. It was a nail biting experience going through the build up, with or without any sort of expectations.

Kimetsu no Yaiba Yuukaku-hen is definitely a good anime worth watching, with the only (tiny) downside for me being the slow pacing. But if you haven't seen the first season, definitely watch that one first.
