Although the anime requires no introduction but still, Demon Slayer, which is 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 not just in Japan but all across the world. The story revolves around Tanjiro Kamando, who returned home to a murdered family.
Kamando’s whole family had been massacred by a demon. 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 Kamando gets appointed as a demon slayer, he also brings along his sister with the hope that he might be able to find a cure for her. Kamando and Nezuko together fights demons in this fantasy action anime which is action-packed, occasionally eerie but eventually a very heartwarming show.
