Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba anime was much hyped before its release and for all the right reasons. The manga was launched in 2016 and has gained immense popularity due to its pretty awesome story. Fans will be glad to know that the first run of anime will last for 26 episodes which means that this anime will be around for a good time.
The first episode of the anime gathered a lot of praise in which we saw the protagonist Tanjirou being introduced who is a young boy. His family was massacred by demons and the only survivor of this attack was his sister Nezuko. She has been converted into a demon bit somehow still remembers her connection with Tanjirou.
Now, his brother decides that no matter what happens he is going through heal her and sets off on this journey. They encounter a demon slayer which tells them to go find a certain man who might help them. Then in the second episode we first saw a demon in anime for the very first time, Nezuko and Tanjirou fought this demon who was ultimately killed by daylight.
This is where Tanjirou and Nezuko met Sakonji Urokodaki who is a veteran trainer of swordsmen. He gave Tanjirou a couple of tasks before accepting him as his student at last after Tanjirou made it back to his house from the mountain top before daylight.
Mountain was filled with numerous traps out of which some were dodged by Tanjirou but more hit him and even though he was severely injured he made it back.
Now, Sakonji Urokodaki has accepted him as his student. In the third episode, a little time skip will be shown and Sakonji Urokodaki will have taught Tanjirou a lot of lessons. He met Sabito and Makomo who will be training him further for some time more. They will make him capable to cut a big rock in half with a sword which is going to be quite a sight to behold in the anime. I’m very excited about this anime.
Even though I haven’t read the manga but just two episodes of the anime have got me all hyped up which speaks volumes about how anime is being handled. The animations, direction, visual effects, voice acting all are just a top class in this new promising anime. It might be crowned the best anime of the season.
