Synopsis

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’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 SJW, 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

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
