Definitely not, there are quiet a lot of better shonen in my opinion, some of the shonen which i think are better are: haikyuu, slam dunk, HxH, bakuman, death note, rurouni kenshin, dragon ball, jojo’s and there are more but i don’t want to write to much

KnY anime only have like 25 episodes while other great shounen anime like HxH, gintama and Haikyuu has a lot more episodes than KnY. So Imo it's too soon to compare and say "this is the best shounen anime". It would be a more fair comparison if we already have season 2 or season 3 of KnY. BUT if I have compare the first 25 episodes of HxH, gintama and haikyuu to the 25 episodes of KnY, then the results would be like this :
1. Haikyuu
2. KnY
3. Gintama
4. HxH

Not yet. But when season 2 comes, then it can be.

But it's already one of the best ones for sure.

25 episodes are more than enough to compare its just that at this point KnY could get better but right now it’s worse or less good i should say than the other shows with 100 episodes or more

I think it's better than HxH (Except Chimera Arc), FMAB, BnHA, Haikyuu!! and most of other shounen shows. But SnK and JoJo Part 1-2-5's anime adaptations are better.

FMAB is the best ever shounen fighting anime by a very long way.

But the likes of Death Note and Azumanga Daioh complicate the issue more generally.

In my opinion the answer is absoluteky not. I don't want to give too much examples of shounen I think are better. HxH 2011 is the only anime I need, there's no one thing in which Demon Slayer could be better, so how I just said answer is a big no.

I do love it, however there are many shonen that are better than this one. For example: D.gray-man, Hxh, One piece or Hitman reborn.

It's the first season... 'best of all time' is just ridiculous right now. Like come on people, you wouldn't be saying this if it wasn't for episode 19. However, it can definitely be great if the quality is this consistent

No need to say calm down, OP is literally the only person in this thread who calls it the best shounen

Even those who really love this series, like myself, admit it's not the best of all, best has the potential.

Kny has seriously bad power system. It power system is very vague and it pulls its back from other battle shonen of its kind.

Ufotable did a great job with this Anime. But it's only 26 episodes and it's pretty damn good for a first season. But, all time is a bit out there for an anime that came out so soon.. If the quality keeps up and if Ufotable manage to adapt the Manga all the way to the end, it probably be Top 10 a least.

Without ufotable, this goes unnoticed and gets a rating of ~8 on MAL. No one talks about it after it finishes the first season.

Something that has the studio to thank for something so drastic cannot be even in the conversation for best of anything imo.

Whats wrong with the power system? just because it isnt an overly complex and sophisticated one like Nen, it meants is bad. Is simple, effective and has his unique touch of beauty to it.

Mh, don't think it's the best shounen, but it belongs at least to the best ones alongside Gintama, FMAB and Hunter x Hunter 2011 for me
And then, God missed a step of his stairs

Without the studio, KnY doesn't really hold too well from a story or characters standpoint. I mean it's good but has too many things that hold it back.

I never said it was the best i just wanted to know others opinions on the matter because the anime has been getting a lot of love recently I don’t even think it’s top 10...

I Love KNY and its manga but it’s pretty sad how people are overrating this anime like it’s the next Masterpiece of the Shounen genre. The Animation and Soundtrack is literally what carries this anime.

It doesnt have to be complex like nen. First it doesnt allow any space for improvement unless you learn a new skill(or increase your lung capacity.) Second you cant really differentiate between higher level to lower level and thus making a use of it in a smart way totally impossible. There are many other flaws if you compare it with other shonen with a power system (that plays important role in the story)

In terms of animation quality, it’s absolutely stunning. But no, it’s far from the best shounen anime overall. Especially when Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood and Hunter x Hunter are a thing.

Giyuu who has just water style the same as Tanjiro, sliced a demon to pieces with very low diff, something that Tanjiro could never dream of. So that thing about not having a room for improvement is a lie, because Tanjiro really needs to train to refine his water techniques + plus learning new forms on top of upgrading the ones he already has. The same applies to his new fire style, is kinda like an Rpg.

We know that the Pillars (Hashiras) are at the top of the food chain, with that in mind we know how things work, the same with the demons since all them are ranked from the lower ranks to the upper ones.

expected nothing less from someone who has demon slayer and fire force already favorited

The manga is in my opinion one of the best ever, the anime is like 4th or 5th best shounen, at least when season 4 comes it will blow peoples mind even more.
HxH is always rank 1

Most overrated of all time

The show feels like normal shonen anime with just better animation. I give it 7/10

Attack on titan, claymore, magi, jojo, fate/zero, fate/apocrypha, hunter x hunter and many others are all better than this

One Piece is the greatest shonen manga of all time and Attack on Titan is the greatest shonen anime of all time, at least imo. Kimetsu no Yaiba still hasn't passed things like Assassination Classroom. Heck it's even debatable to say it's better than the Promised Neverland or My Hero Academia. And if you ignore the filler, Naruto is still well well ahead of it. Classics like Dragon Ball, YYH and Kenshin are still ahead of it. And you still got shonen giants like HxH, FMAB, Death Note, Gintama, and Jojo. If Kimetsu no Yaiba is your favorite shonen ever that's fine, but we have to use some form of objective judgement (by majority opinion) to accurately figure out its rank and I'm sure most would agree that the majority of the titles I listed are in fact better. Yes Kimetsu no Yaiba's animation and soundtrack hold up against any shonen in history, but imo things like writing, plot, characters, and thematic depth hold much more value. It's way way way too early to be calling Kimetsu no Yaiba the greatest shonen of all time.

No. Most of the characters are one dimensional and are extremely annoying. The comedy is often out of place. While Ufotable did great with the animation, the pacing is one of the things that kept me from enjoying the anime, since they dragged out fights with 10 minutes of Tanjiro's monologues and screaming each time.

I don't think it comes anywhere near top 10. Honestly, I feel like this is one of the most overrated shows at the moment.

The point is that story doesn't hold on its own. If it had the inconsistency or pacing issues of other shounen, it wouldn't be hailed as being as good.
