Tanjirou Kamado lives with his impoverished family on a remote mountain. As the oldest sibling, he took upon the responsibility of ensuring his family's livelihood after the death of his father. On a cold winter day, he goes down to the local village in order to sell some charcoal. As dusk falls, he is forced to spend the night in the house of a curious man who cautions him of strange creatures that roam the night: malevolent demons who crave human flesh.

When he finally makes his way home, Tanjirou's worst nightmare comes true. His entire family has been brutally slaughtered with the sole exception of his sister Nezuko, who has turned into a flesh-eating demon. Engulfed in hatred and despair, Tanjirou desperately tries to stop Nezuko from attacking other people, setting out on a journey to avenge his family and find a way to turn his beloved sister back into a human.

I’m one of the few readers who followed this manga from the start to where it is now, and guys, what a ride. As one of the reviewers said, in the first ten chapters you get this feeling of imminent axing from WSJ, just close an eye and keep reading. Anyway, truly a refreshing manga, Kimetsu no Yaiba takes elements from the boring and repetitive Shounen genre and gives its own vibes, colors, atmosphere and setting, putting everything together. What I mean is, Kimetsu no Yaiba does NOT revolutionize the Shounen, the author gives his best to make it unique in its own repetitivness and read more

Kimetsu no yaiba is the kind of manga that starts off slow, you feel like the author doesn't know what to do, but picks up later on when the mangaka introduces other characters, the characters are ALL lovable seriously! and Tanjiro's personality is not really your typical shonen stuff he's kindhearted and super sweet not hotblooded and impulsive, another good thing is the female characters they're all likeable and useful for a change i really like Nezuko and their brother-sister bond, as for the art many have commented that the characters sometimes look derpy but that's not bad either because it suits the funny moments. read more

I do not like to make reviews without having seen the complete product and I will do the review when the manga ends and I will give my final opinions but for now I will only dedicate to a recommendation of the current state of the work ...

History (6/10):
I will be honest, you will not find here silly and childish ideals of dreamers in the style of bnha or some other naruto 2.0, the story is solid, it starts strong with a premise with much emphasis on family issues with Tanjiro doing the impossible by save the soul of her sister turned into Oni to read more

Note : I'm not native speaker so bear with the sentence which grammatically incorrect.

A little small flashback of experience from me :
I'm one of those people who is 'almost' abandoned/dropped this series. If I remember correctly, the very first time I read this was early 2017. I immediately feel that this series would be axed. I really feel that way, like each week the next chapter would be the last.
First, I don't like the title, “Blade of Demon Destruction”. This manga gives historical and fantasy vibes, so it's not the best title nor cool either. But, I will put that aside because this manga gives read more
