Demon Slayer – With Breathtaking Animation and Dazzling Soundtrack, Demon Slayer shows it’s potential.

Genre – Action, fantasy, comedy
Anime Series, 26 Episodes each of 24 min / Ufotable studious /

Synopsis – The kamado’s family lives happily and peacefully on a remote mountain. One day our main character, Kamado Tanjirou, found out his entire family is slaughtered by Demon and only left his little sister turns into a Bloodthirsty demon. Along with his sister, Tanjirou starts a journey and become a demon slayer to avenge his family and find a cure for Nezuko to turn her back into a human.

Pros – On the surface, Demon slayer looks like a decent shonen with a lot of action, a simple plot, hilarious comedy but its not just a regular shonen. With it’s Cutting edge animation, fantastic soundtrack, uniquely crafted action scenes Demon slayer totally deserves in the top 10 anime of 2019.

I loved how the different fighting styles showed artistically. Like Tanjirou’s breath of water, Zenistu’s thunderstorm style. The majority of the series consists of battle scenes. The way of telling the Story in between battles like flashbacks of a demon, the background story of our protagonists makes every battle invested more emotional. With the satisfying sound mix, breathtaking visuals, mesmerizing soundtrack, make every action scenes spectacularly gorgeous. Ufotables studio is done a brilliant job.

Demon slayer also has some decent protagonists, our main lead Tanjirou, a nice guy, sees good even in demons. Zenistu a silly hilarious guy, he rarely fights except in vital moments where he stole the audience, Inosuke he will do anything to prove himself. After seeing adorable, badass Nezuko, no wonder people all over the internet are praising her and the memes…

And the Story is simple not necessarily a bad thing, not every movie/anime should have an enormously complicated story, when focusing on other aspects and performed right it doesn’t matter. This is true when it comes for Demon Slayer.
Demon Slayer is also available on Netflix.

Cons – All minor issues are until episode 10 only. The starting episodes are super rushed. It doesn’t take time for emotional scenes and changes every environment into comedy. Battles seemed repeated.

Conclusion – Demon slayer, is absolutely worth the time, it’s entertaining, and with futuristic Animation, its unique from regular Shonen anime with crafted fight scenes. Absolutely recommended. Looking forward to Season 2.
