Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba by Koyoharu Gotouge is probably one of the biggest animes of our decade, with a massive fan following. The manga has just ended at the peak of its popularity, but the anime has still got a lot to cover.
The story so far
Season 1 had Kamado Tanjiro learning how to be a swordsman to protect his sister Kamado Nezuko, who had become a demon. After undergoing hellish training, he became a demon slayer, an elite swordsman and also learnt one of their powerful Breathing Styles – the water technique.
After making two friends in Zenitsu and Inosuke, Tanjiro and Nezuko set out to cure Nezuko. He soon learns about the existence of Muzan Kibutsuji, the king of demons and the one responsible for Nezuko’s transformation and his family’s death, so Tanjiro decides to slay him and end the terror plaguing Japan.
They soon come across the Hashiras, the ultimate demon slayers who had to be convinced that Nezuko still has humanity left and is not a blood-thirsty demon who had to be killed. Having seen that, the Hashiras provide their assistance.
Season 2 details
