Is it any good?
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba may feel like a typical shonen fighting story, you can say in some cases it is but as the story progresses it starts to become more and more interesting and fun to watch. The journey begins to take place as Tanjiro Kamado along with his sister Nezuko sets off to find a cure for his sister Nezuko who has turned into a demon and bring Nezuko back to being a human.
Throughout this journey of his, Tanjiro Kamado faces many difficulties as he is inexperienced and lacks skill for overcoming the harsh situations and problems he faces along the way. It reminds us that bravery or heroism does not mean the ability to fight back when you fall but it can act as a concern against who you are fighting for and who you fight against.
But he also has support from his sister Nezuko as she helps him in some cases in fighting with the demons they face as she also wants to overcome this situation of her and turn back to a normal human being. They also show one of the most charming parts of the whole series which is the sibling relationship between Tanjiro Kamado and his younger sister Nezuko.
When it comes to the outfits of the characters and their design Koyoharu Gotouge has designed the characters in such a way that no matter what it is a demon of a human they have their own presence and are completely different from each other each one has its own unique style and is beautifully detailed. Character designing takes a long time if not worked properly can degrade the value of the series that is where Koyoharu Gotouge comes in and nails even the tiniest of the details.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba has great visual graphics and it feels spectacular to watch. It is also worth knowing that all the fights are creative and they evolve as time passes by being tame in the beginning and transforming into a fully destructive fight as you would expect for the manga series till the end. All the characters and the scenes are laid down perfectly.
It only has 26 episodes and we will get more episodes soon as the pandemic situation becomes normal hope we get it soon. The fights in the series are some of my favorites they are displayed beautifully and are enjoyable to watch.
The way the characters develop in this series is shown beautifully. The characters have devastating changes from the start till the end and each character turns to be a more likable character by the end of Demon Slayer. The story of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No is magnificent as well as the characters of the series.
Tanjiro Kamado: he is the main character in this series. He is a very kind character. His dress code comprises of black and green jacket over a white robe along with black pants.
Nezuko Kamado: she plays the role of Tanjiro’s sister in the series. She is a cute character. She turns into a demon after being attacked.
Zenitsu Agatsuma: he is a friend of Tanjiro Kamado and also a member of demon slayer corps. He gets scared easily. He always wants to live up to expectations set up for him and outperforms it.
Inosuke Hashibira: he is also a friend of Tanjiro Kamado and a former member of demon slayer corps. He is always angry. He has swords and he also wears a bore head.
Kibutsuji Muzan: he plays the role of an enemy in the series. He has curly hairs and he always wears a cap. He can also turn into a female and he was the one who turned Nezuko into a demon.
While this season of the series was not as exciting to watch as the previous ones, it had a change in its storyline which turns our focus by bringing the change in the looks of the characters and making them pop. It becomes more interesting when it ends with a cliffhanger now we have to wait for another season to know what happened.
