Aniplex of America’s Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba burst on the scene in 2019, marshaling a legion of fans with its epic tale of a slaughtered family; protagonist seeking revenge; and plethora of demons to fight along the way. In the series, bloodthirsty demons lurk in the woods and nobody dares to venture out at night, save for the demon slayers of legend. Surviving in this harsh world, young Tanjiro takes it upon himself to protect his family until the day that everything is taken from him in a vicious slaughter. Now, all he has left is his sister, and she’s not even human anymore.
