Our introduction to the series started off with a boy named Tanjiro Kamado, carrying his wounded sister, Nezuko Kamado through a terrible snowstorm in a forest, their family slaughtered by a demon; we barely get five minutes to get to know their family but in the brief time we had you can see what a deep connection they had with each other. Fans of the Manga series would already know how it plays out but for the first time viewers like me, well it tore my heart to shreds to see what these two went through and what they had lost.

One of the other things that fans have come to admire is the beautiful animation that Studio ufotable brings in for this series; if you are not familiar with Ufotable, they have produced anime such as God Eater, Fate/Zero, Fate/stay night: Unlimited Bladeworks, Tales of Zestiria the X. But ufotable cannot take all the credit for the animation working so well, Koyoharu Gotōge’s character designs and my Manga art blends so well with what this studio offers it is no wonder how Koyoharu’s art made this possible.

The humor in this series balances perfectly with what it offers to the viewers, balancing the serious tones of the situation when it comes to moments dealing with Demons and moments of trouble for the protagonists or when introducing a new enemy. For example, Zenitsu Agatsuma might be a big coward and sometimes his actions cause humorous reactions for the viewer but we see there is more to Zenitsu than meets the eye; even with his feuds with the Boar Swordsman Inosuke Hashibira who maybe short-tempered and prideful at times but it balances out the dynamic in this show!

Protect Nezuko! She is super adorable!

Final Grade: 9 out of 10, a great anime that can be wholesome, have fearful moments, action and of course, humor that makes life worthwhile. It will be premiering on Toonami eventually, no release date has been confirmed.
