Demon Slayer : Kimetsu No Yaiba. Vol.1
Story and art by #KoyoharuGotouge
For my first manga review I opted to go with a newer entry instead of one that started my love for the genre. While I will definitely tackle Yu Yu Hakusho one day I wanted todiscuss Demon Slayer. #DemonSlayer got its start in 2016 and has become a phenomenon since then. It took me some time before I got to it but have since become hooked on the manga and anime. In Taisho era Japan we are introduced to Tanjiro. A humble, polite boy trying to make a living selling charcoal in order to support his large family. After returning home, Tanjiro finds his family killed, with the exception of his sister Nezuko who is on the brink of death. As he is carrying #Nezuko to a nearby doctor he is attacked by her as she has now become a demon. #Tanjiro pleads to whatever humanity is left in her as well as convinces Giyu, a Demon Slayer to spare Nezuko's life. Seeing potential in Tanjiro to join Demon Slayer Corps, #Giyu directs Tanjiro to seek out #Urokodaki , a renowned trainer. Prior to encountering Urokodaki our cast of characters faces off against a demon in an entertaining battle. Under Urokodaki's guidance Tanjiro grows in skill and eventually sets forth to Final Selection. Only those who survive it can become full fledged members of the #DemonSlayerCorps . Right of the bat Tanjiro comes across an overwhelmingly powerful demon which ends the volume and sets up future events.
Demon Slayer is endearing as Tanjiro's quest to revert Nezuko to a human is poignant. Nezuko is strong, sweet as well as insanely funny at times. Demons posses interesting designs and present for action packed battles. There is well placed exposition which eloquently delineate the structure of this world. This volume moves at a fast pace, introduces interesting characters, sprinkles in humor and ends on a powerful cliffhanger. A very strong first volume for a final grade of A. ‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐‐
