The animated adaptation of Koyoharu Gotouge’s manga series from Shueisha Jump Comics that has  now sold over 150 million copies of volumes 1~23 in total. The show, which originally began broadcast in  April 2019, follows the story of Tanjiro Kamado, a boy whose family was murdered by a demon while his  own sister, Nezuko, was turned into one herself. Tanjiro Kamado joined the Demon Slayer Corps, in order  to find a way to turn his sister back into a human. This adventure exploded in popularity not only in Japan  but also around the world, as it portrayed the heartrending ties between humans and demons and a  ghastly swashbuckler, while having its moments of comic relief.
