Although the anime requires no introduction, Demon Slayer, a more compact title for ‘Kimetsu no Yaiba’, has been taking the world by storm ever since its first season. The show, which is essentially a manga, has generated a huge fan base in Japan and worldwide. The story revolves around TanjiroKamando, who returned home to a murdered family. A demon had massacred Kathmandu’s whole family.
The only person left alive was his sister Nezuko. Although not killed, she is possessed by a demon but is successful enough to keep holding to human emotions, thereby not letting her demon side overpower her. As Kathmandu gets appointed as a demon slayer, he also brings along his sister with the hope that he might find a cure for her. Kathmandu and Nezuko fight demons in this fantasy action anime, which is action-packed, occasionally eerie but eventually a heartwarming show.
