Anime Review: Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is a Japanese manga series by Koyoharu Gotoge; he is both the writer and illustrator. It was adapted by Ufotable as an anime television series and released in 2019 with 26 episodes that aired from April 6 to September 28 of the same year.
The story starts with a shattering incident where Tanjiro Kamado comes home to his family, only to find them slaughtered by a demon. His sister Nezuko survives the gruesome massacre. However, she gets infected and becomes a demon herself. Tanjiro is determined to make a revenge by slaying all the demons until he finds the one who killed his family. Thus, he becomes a demon slayer and finds a way to bring back his sister Nezuko to her human form.
It’s been a very long time since I watched and completed an anime series, so this is officially the first and latest anime that I have finished. It was so good that it brought back my interest which goes to show how amazing the series is. The main characters, Tanjiro and Nezuko will forever be my favorite because they are too adorable and they’re a real team – a brother and sister that can’t be defeated because they trust and care for each other.
Tanjiro has a strong ability to smell and identify anyone and anything through his scent while Nezuko’s half-demon and half human form bring so much excitement; not to mention, she’s probably the loveliest demon anyone can imagine. From beginning to end, the series was like a joyride through different emotions, morals, and values. It proves that good always prevail against evil and that even the most hopeless cases can be resolved. Anyone who’s into anime will love the fascinating characters and the theme itself though the series should be watched with parental guidance because of its violent theme.
I’m really wishing for a second season because I’m eager to bring back that feeling of getting overly excited whenever I watch an episode. To those who haven’t watched this, start watching it now! It’s fun and hilarious but beware of the crying moments you might experience a few times. Nevertheless, Demon Slayer is an original and fascinating story that’s hard to forget.
