For centuries, the Demon Slayer Corps has sacredly kept the location of Swordsmith Village a secret. As the village of the greatest forgers, it provides Demon Slayers with the finest weapons, which allow them to fight night-crawling fiends and ensure the safety of humans. After his sword was chipped and deemed useless, Tanjirou Kamado, along with his precious little sister Nezuko, is escorted to the village to receive a new one.

Meanwhile, the death of an Upper Rank Demon disturbs the idle order in the demon world. As Tanjirou becomes acquainted with Mist Hashira Muichirou Tokitou and Love Hashira Mitsuri Kanroji, ferocious powers creep from the shadows and threaten to shatter the Demon Slayers' greatest line of defense.

+ Animation is good.
+ Pretty colors.

- Horrifying and weird special effect in the first episode, during Hazaka's entrance. What the hell was that lol...
- Poor and way too long introduction of upper moons. They are all thrown at your face, talking, torturing each other, then talking, etc...
- Obnoxious stupid pink girl showing her breast.
- Tanjirou got almost beaten to death, but he recovered immediately... No body or mind damages..
- Obnoxious and noisy child lecturing Tanjirou about how to fight (ear rape)...
- Tanjiro is still the puuuurfect MC, always defending people, so noble, so pure... bleh...
- Tanjiro never STFU during his training, ruining nice visual. I ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (3/? eps)
Here we are again with another season of this show. After the first 3 initial episodes; I must say it has been quite disappointing.

Despite the world-class production skills of Ufotable giving us objectively some of the most audacious piece of art and animation in the Shonen medium, it sadly does not make me ignore the absolute lacklustre characterisation and development of the main characters.

Firstly, we are introduced to the rest of the Upper Moons, each obtaining a unique personality with one another. They look demonic but… that’s really it. Hopefully they don’t go through the same phase as every other demon has in the past ...

Preliminary (3/? eps)
Kimetsu no Yaiba is back with a bang with the Swordsmith Village arc. If the early episodes are anything to go by, chances are this is going to surpass even the Red Light District arc, and itself, yet again. Therefore, it is hardly a merry surprise that this is the most anticipated Anime of the year.

Plot: As the name suggests, the story will span the Swordsmith Village arc of the Manga. A misty village shrouded deep in the bosom of Taisho Japan, famous for crafting nichirin swords that the Demon Slayers use. The events pick up straight from the fateful battle of final part of ...
