InuYasha, Kimetsu no Yaiba Recommendations
Kimetsu no Yaiba reminded me of Inu Yasha, both shows center on our male lead and involve demon slaying. The setting is historical Japan, and the characters are very fleshed out, even the demons get some of their own backstories. If you've seen Inu Yasha and would like a similar experience, Kimetsu no Yaiba is a fantastically animated shounen with it's very lovable characters and bits of comedy throughout.
