Demon Slayer: knew full well that he would be targeted by hand ghosts if he put on a mask, so why did he let his disciples die?
Our protagonist Kanjiro participated in the selection only after the former water column "Urokodaki Sakonji" training, and finally Tanjiro passed the test.
However, there is one place worth discussing, that is, "hand Ghost and Mask".
There are many ghosts in the rattan mountain, and perhaps the most special and powerful one is the "hand ghost". His large body and many arms are very ugly, and he generally pays special attention to the children who "wear a fox mask." this mask was given to him by Master just before Tanjiro set out, saying that it was a "mask to remove the evil", but from this point of view, the effect was just the opposite.
So why would Urokodaki Sakonji give the mask to Tanjiro?
Is he trying to hurt Tanjiro on purpose?
We know from the hand ghost that it was Urokodaki Sakonji, who caught it to attack the mountain, and it also knew that the man wearing the fox mask was Urokodaki Sakonji's apprentice, so it vented all its hatred on these children, and as long as it saw the mask, it would try its best to cull. Therefore, almost every term of Urokodaki Sakonji's apprentice will be killed by hand ghosts, so here comes the problem. Since wearing a mask, it will be targeted by hand ghosts.
So why continue to give masks to children?
As many as dozens of disciples were killed by hand ghosts, and even Sabito and Makomo were killed because of it. Urokodaki Sakonji is also very sad for this, so why wear masks for later disciples?
He knew full well that what he called the "mask of elimination" would only attract powerful ghosts, so why did he put the carefully nurtured children in danger?
In fact, maybe he did it for the good of the children.
Urokodaki Sakonji, as a trainer, was the water column of the ghost killing team at first, and he fought with evil spirits all his life, so he was well aware of the horrors of these monsters. If most people want to fight against them, they need acquired efforts in addition to their strong talent. If there is no absolute strength, then joining the ghost killing team is undoubtedly death, and it may also drag everyone down. This is also the purpose of Fujita selection.
Only the brave and powerful can become the fresh blood of the ghost team.
As a trainer and former Shuizhu, Urokodaki Sakonji has a responsibility to consider the future of the ghost killing team, and he should also know the strength of his disciples. He knows that the hand ghosts are powerful, but his disciples are also strictly trained and qualified, so he will let his children face the powerful hand ghosts, because that is the only way to ensure that they have to join the ghost killing team and become the main force in the team.
Or to live as a ghost hunter.
Urokodaki Sakonji's approach was risky, but he didn't mean to harm his disciples. The reason why he had set so many traps, carried out such harsh practice, and even asked Tanjiro to split the boulder with a knife was to prepare for the fight with the hand ghost in the future. If Tanjiro could not split the boulder, it would also be impossible to split the hand ghost's neck, and the Master would not let Tanjiro participate in the audition, let alone give him a fox mask.
Since we want to join the ghost killing team, in addition to rigorous training, we should also be aware of dying at any time in the face of a strong enemy. It is not master's ruthlessness, but the path chosen by these children such as Tanjiro. If Urokodaki Sakonji protects them, then when they join the ghost killing team in the future, they have no choice but to die when they face a really powerful enemy.
