Tengen Uzui’s condescending attitude toward Daki has backfired because the Upper Six has summoned her older brother, Gyutaro. The second demon has emerged out of Daki’s back and is giving Tengen a hard time.

"Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Entertainment District Arc" Episode 8 is set to showcase Tengen preparing to face Daki and her murderous brother. Can he fight the two Upper Six demons alone?

“After Nezuko attempts to attack innocent bystanders as her demon form advances, Tanjiro is finally able to make her fall asleep by singing a lullaby. Meanwhile, another demon emerges out of Daki’s body after being beheaded by Uzui - Gyutaro, Daki’s older brother and the other form of Upper Six. Uzui must now face both demons, Daki and Gyutaro,” read the official summary of "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Entertainment District Arc" Episode 8.

In Episode 7, titled "Transformation," Tengen arrived and sliced off Daki’s head. Tanjiro Kamado, who had been battling against Daki, was shocked to see that Sound Hashira’s one strike could knock out the Upper Six demon.

Despite being headless, she wasn’t dead yet and Tengen started mocking her for being a weak demon. However, Tengen was shocked and wondered how she managed to live even after the fatal blow.

At this point, Daki was throwing tantrums and she eventually summoned her brother who appeared out of her back.

Gyutaro arrived and attacked Tengen. Meanwhile, Tanjiro was calming his sister Nezuko, who went berserk against Daki.
