Koyoharu Gotōge’s manga Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba has now got an anime adaptation. The manga is certainly an astonishing one but that doesn’t mean that anime adaptation of manga is going to be great as well. There are various aspects of the anime that make it one to watch out for.
First, one being the animations, the second the direction and finally the pacing with which the manga is being adapted. After watching the premiere episode all of these three aspects of the anime are more than just good, they are just awesome. The direction has literally brought the emotions of manga directly into the anime, the animations are top-notch as well which makes the action scenes of the anime awesome to behold and the pacing is the best part.
The first episode adapted just one chapter of the manga and it seems that the pacing in the near future is also going to be slow and steady which is exactly how every anime should be pacing the manga adaptations. The story of this anime is very interesting. Here is the small appetizer of the story for you all:
The story is focused on the character named Tanjiro Kamado. He is a young boy who lives in the mountains along with his family. Their family makes charcoal and then sells them in town. One day, when Tanjiro Kamado returns home after selling charcoal, he finds out that all his family has been murdered by the demons and his sister is the lone survivor but since her wounds have been exposed the demon blood, she has been turned into a demon.
Tanjiro Kamado now looks to cure his sister and turn her back to being a human. His sister surprisingly even after being converted to a demon protects him as they set off on a journey to cure her.
The plot is very interesting and when you guys watch the season premiere you will certainly want to watch more and more episodes of this awesome new anime.
I just hope that in the future the quality of the anime does not change and also the pacing remains slow and steady as it has been at the start. Even if it animates up to three chapters that is okay but animating more chapters then that per episode will turn out to be a disaster as the anime will then skip most of the good bits from every chapter as we saw in Tokyo Ghoul anime wherein more than 12 chapters were animated per episode.
So, let us hope this anime keeps on delivering on its promise in the future as well as it has certainly done in its premiere episode.
