    Ever since the death of his father, Tanjirou has taken it upon himself to support his family. Although their lives may be hardened by tragedy, they've found happiness. But that ephemeral warmth is shattered one day when Tanjirou finds his family slaughtered and the lone survivor, his sister Nezuko, turned into a demon. To his surprise, however, Nezuko still shows signs of human emotion and thought...

    Thus begins Tanjirou's quest to fight demons and turn his sister human again.

    Finally found the thread. ^_^
    Holy shit. That ending though! Love it. I’m enjoying Tanjiro’s growth as well as the imagery. Those wisteria twins?sisters? we’re creepy fun. I really wanna see Nezuko active again though since I decided that she’s fricking adorable in that cuddly, protective monster kinda way. Plus come on, there’s a bit gag (yes I wanna cosplay her obviously).

    He’s come so far! He defeated the huge demon, put their souls to rest. Nezuko is awake. He’s got his own blade and now he’s about to go off on his own. He’s no longer that crybaby begging for help. I’m so proud and nervous for him at the same time. Just aaaaa!!! I mean, it could be worse. What’s gonna happen with that blonde guy? Or that other one? He was so angry and rude. I was glad that Tanjirou defended the wisteria twin and crushed his arm for sure. Nice to have that explanation/theory about Nezuko’s sleep. Also, that prayer for the demon and the whole deal with the reunion of the brothers’ spirits was great. Probably part of what makes him special. Wonder if he gets a new mask.

    I've just started watching Kimetsu no Yaiba, and I finished all 16 episodes in one go lol XD it was good! The animation looks good too, including the actions. I haven't read the manga, so I'm looking forward to see more (especially about Tanjiro's father)

    Also, I have no idea if there's any significance to this, but is there a reason as to why Tanjiro's scar looks different??

    started this. Looks good, simular art of previous ufotable series so the bar is set pretty high. music is great, a really good addition and works marvelous with the animation. The story, i'm not completly convinced. I'm wondering where it will take me.

    edit, i got what bothered me, the family complex of the nipps. Let's see what the rest brings.

    I don't mind a strong family bond, but sometimes in anime/manga it goes way over my head. Probably a cultural feature but still something I notice hard.

    Ohhh I see. Well it’s a feature of many cultures, TBH. And you meant “nipps” as a shorthand for Nippon’s, not nipples. Bring you, I wasn’t sure and thus, was super confused lol.
    I do think that there’s probably something about their bloodline that’s special so that’s why their bond beyond the barrier of human/oni is so remarkable even in their world. As it’s been noted time and again.

    I’m on Episode 8 right now I think, and oh boy am I enjoying this. Tanjiro’s water wheel attacks are so nicely animated, and the overall aesthetic is very pleasing. Me likey.

    Also, the plot’s pretty good
