Demon Slayer ( season 1)

Well, it’s certainly been a hot minute since I covered some anime. I’ve gotten plenty of requests as well as started many but never finishing but I’ve started again. Demon Slayer is one of the hottest anime to drop since My Hero Academia took off and the movie is now the top-grossing anime film of all time, beating Dragonball Super: Broly . So is the hype worth it?

Tanjiro is a kind hearted young man who loves and wants to take care of his mother and siblings. Life is rough but he glides through smiling kindly…until blood thirsty demons ravage his family, leaving himself and his sister Nezeko as the sole survivors; Nezeko has been left as a violent, murderous demon. Heartbroken, Tanjiro sets off to cure his sister of her demon blood and regain her humanity, undergoing the training of becoming a Demon Slayer, mastering the art of water breathing and gaining new friends as he sets off on the impossible task of not only curing his sister but hunting down the original demon to get her cure…

First and foremost, this anime is absolutely breathtaking on the eyes. The use of color and animation styles, especially during the fight scenes is truly beautiful and makes the series instantly stand out. The relationship between Tanjiro and Nezeko is simple but powerful much like Edward and Alfonse from Fullmetal Alchemist and the characters around them are fascinating and cool, both heroes and villains alike. The season ends on a really cool cliffhanger that directly leads into the movie. In the end, Demon Slayer is a very promising anime I highly recommend checking out, especially if you are new to anime or just want something both heartwarming and badass. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
