There’s nothing like a good ole story of a guy going to great lengths to protect his family and the friends he loves most that get me hype!
Hey guys, gays, and gworls, I’m back with a review on a bomb anime called ‘Kimetsu no Yaiba’, or what most people know as ‘Demon Slayer!’
Based on the manga written by Koyoharu Gotouge, Demon Slayer follows the story of a young boy by the name Kamado Tanjiro whose life gets turned upside-down when his family is massacred, and his sister becomes a demon. Tanjiro must now embark on an adventure with his demon sister, Nezuko, to find a way to reverse the demon curse and find the monster that killed his family.
Let me first start by saying that the animation style is PHENOMENAL! This show has done the manga true justice by bringing it to life. This show also does a great job of bringing the cinematics to the small screen.
The different effects shown on each of the demon slayers’ swords are such a beauty. It brings all the natural elements of the earth to life in a way that you would never expect to see it. Not only does each character’s look represents their power, but it also represents their personality of some sorts. Like Zenitsu’s sports a demon slayer corps outfit with a flashy, yellow drape. It goes along with his lightning fighting forms and his ability to run away just as fast as the lightning itself.
Speaking of Zenitsu, he brings true comedy to the show. Of course, there are others that bring comedy to the table, but Zenitsu BRINGS. IT. ALL. From the first time we have seen him, all the way up to the end of the season this man is always unintentionally on a role! He’s clumsy, swoon by all females, and damn near scared of anything that moves. He is honestly my favorite character of this entire story.
The plot itself follows the manga with no stops nor no fillers. It seems like the creators took the illustrations straight from the manga to give it color and animation. The same feelings and emotions I had when reading it translated perfectly to the show!
In my opinion, this is a must-watch for all my anime fans! Also, if you’re looking to get into anime, I would suggest you start with this one. I can guarantee that you won’t regret it! Season 1 of Demon Slayer is available to stream on Crunchyroll and Hulu now.
