Ever since the death of his father, the burden of supporting the family has fallen upon Tanjirou Kamado's shoulders. Though living impoverished on a remote mountain, the Kamado family are able to enjoy a relatively peaceful and happy life. One day, Tanjirou decides to go down to the local village to make a little money selling charcoal. On his way back, night falls, forcing Tanjirou to take shelter in the house of a strange man, who warns him of the existence of flesh-eating demons that lurk in the woods at night.

When he finally arrives back home the next day, he is met with a horrifying sight—his whole family has been slaughtered. Worse still, the sole survivor is his sister Nezuko, who has been turned into a bloodthirsty demon. Consumed by rage and hatred, Tanjirou swears to avenge his family and stay by his only remaining sibling. Alongside the mysterious group calling themselves the Demon Slayer Corps, Tanjirou will do whatever it takes to slay the demons and protect the remnants of his beloved sister's humanity.

This show is so good.

I love the animation in this show It's so good There is a reason why Episode 19 broke the internet Because of the animation in that was mind blowing ufotable came and they came in And they cooked. Its hard to think that its animation. Like the show is so beautiful.

The story is simple And has a likeable cast of characters.

And the visuals are so good Even when characters are just talking Or exisiting its really good. It just looks great to look at

It feels like in episode 19 your eyeball clitors being sitmulated for 30 straight minutes it's so good ...

Mixed Feelings
Although the story is entertaining at times, it lacks depth and feels a bit repetitive. The fight scenes are great, but the emotional moments feel a bit shallow and repetitive. The characters are likable, but their development and arcs feel a bit limited. The animation and soundtrack are also very average, despite the series having some memorable moments.

I would recommend watching Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba to those looking for an entertaining and enjoyable experience, but not necessarily ...

Strap yourself in for a rollercoaster of clichés, repetitive fights, and enough yelling to shatter glass. Demon Slayer is a show that throws every shounen trope in the blender, hits puree, and hopes you'll call it a smoothie.

Tanjiro, our protagonist, is about as original as a white t-shirt. Whining about his dead family and spouting generic lines about never giving up gets old faster than expired milk. Nezuko, his demon sister, is basically a silent prop with a kawaii box strapped to her back. The supporting cast is a mixed bag of annoying archetypes: the loud boar-head dude, the sleepy drool-fest, and the brooding emo ...
