Originally a manga by Koyoharu Gotoge serialized in Shueisha's Jump Comics, this series boasts 23 volumes that have sold a cumulative total of over 150 million printed copies. The anime is produced by ufotable.
First aired in Japan in Apr. 2019, the story begins with young Tanjiro Kamado joining the "Demon Slayer Corps" in search of a way to revert his sister, Nezuko—his only surviving family after their massacre by the hands of another demon—back into human form after she was turned into a demon herself. Then in Oct. 2020, "Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Movie: Mugen Train" movie adaptation was released, and the TV anime adaptation of the "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Mugen Train Arc" and "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Entertainment District Arc" were aired from 2021 to 2022.
Its heartrending tales of both people and demons alike, along with breathtaking displays of swordsmanship and occasional comedic scenes, garnered immense popularity worldwide.
