Kimetsu No Yaiba Chapter 188 Raw Scans Spoilers
We can’t post the leaked images, but here are the rough translations of leaked Japanese text.
In the present, Muzan attacks from every direction with his tentacles. “He’s sped up again! I’m being pushed back! I can’t sense a single gap.” Gyomei says “I can’t even defend Himejima-san! I immediately get stopped! Shit!” Obanai says “I’m going to be the first to be broken! I haven’t even been a bit of help! I have to put my life on the line. I don’t even know if I can stop Muzan though!” Mitsuri says. Muzan’s slashing attacks pursue Mitsuri as she dodges. At that moment, Mitsuri is attacked by the sensation of being sucked in, and her forehead, left shoulder, and left cheek are slashed.
Obanai instantly rushes to her aid. Gyomei, Giyu, and Sanemi are unable to land attacks on Muzan, who seems completely nonchalant. Obanai tells a demon slayer to go find Yushiro so he can help Mitsuri. “Wait. I can still fight. I’m not going to hold you back this time.” Mitsuri says, opening her eyes. “Drop it. You’ve done enough.” Obanai says. He leaves Mitsuri with the demon slayer, and sprints towards Muzan. Mitsuri goes to stop him, but she is too weak to stand. “Iguro-san! No! Please don’t die!” As Obanai runs, his bandage covering his mouth unravels. His mouth, split open all the way to the edges of his face, is exposed, but he doesn’t care. “If only we could’ve met under more peaceful circumstances.” Obanai thinks.
Obanai’s was born to a vain, miserly family who lived by stealing gold and lands from others. Only women were born to their family. And then, for the first time in 370 years, a man was born. When a man was born, he was kept in a cage from the moment of his birth until he turned twelve, at which point he was released and introduced to a woman with a lower-body like that of a snake’s. He was initially to be sacrificed to her as a baby, but as he was a man, and had strange eyes, he was kept alive until he could grow into a bigger meal.
She said she would make his mouth like hers, and split it open to match her own. Obanai thought of nothing but survival and using a hairpin he had stolen, carved away at the wooden slats of his cage. As he was doing so, he came to meet Kaburamaru, the only living thing he trusted. When he escaped, the snake woman came in pursuit, but the Fire Pillar saved him from her. He went to see his cousin, but his cousin said “Because of you, everyone’s going to die! You should’ve just let her eat you!” It ripped at his heart. “I was born to a family of trash. And so, I too am trash.” His restless thoughts turned against the demons. He loathed the demons with everything in him. In the present, as he runs, Obanai remembers when he first met Mitsuri. He thinks of Mitsuri, how he’d seen her amidst falling petals. She wore a kimono.
Her smile, so deeply in bloom, it seemed it might scatter in the wind. “I want to defeat Muzan, and then die. I pray my impure blood is somehow cleansed. I want to be reborn in a peaceful world without demons. And then next time, I can tell you I love you.”
Kimetsu No Yaiba Chapter 188 is releasing on December 22, 2019.
