Since ancient times, rumors have abounded of man-eating demons lurking in the woods. Because of this, the local townsfolk never venture outside at night. Legend has it that a demon slayer also roams the night, hunting down these bloodthirsty demons. For young Tanjirou, these rumors will soon to become his harsh reality...

Ever since the death of his father, Tanjirou has taken it upon himself to support his family. Although their lives may be hardened by tragedy, they've found happiness. But that ephemeral warmth is shattered one day when Tanjirou finds his family slaughtered and the lone survivor, his sister Nezuko, turned into a demon. To his surprise, however, Nezuko still shows signs of human emotion and thought...

Thus begins Tanjirou's quest to fight demons and turn his sister human again.

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 said, "you can't judge too soon" believe me even if it's not 100% for you.

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 but very 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 read more

The art is very nice, it has its own unique style that's easily recognisable. The backgrounds are nice. The author is very good at conveying the characters emotions . The panel layout is good but a little bland. The fight scenes are easy to follow and memorable for the most part. The character designs are good, even for the villain of the week type characters.The characters are fun, and the main villain seems to be interesting. My biggest issue with the story is when its in between big arcs because there's usually not much happening and it feels like filler. This manga is still ongoing read more
