    The setting is Taisho era Japan. Tanjirou is a kindhearted young boy who lived peacefully with his family as a coal seller. Their normal life changes completely when his family is slaughtered by demons. The only other survivor, Tanjirou's younger sister Nezuko, has become a ferocious demon. In order to return Nezuko to normal and get revenge on the demon that killed their family, the two of them depart on a journey. From a young talent, an adventure tale of blood and swords begins!

    I wondered if it might be like goblin slayer. In a way it sorta is. Though they tried to get to your emotions a little early for my taste. But it's good. Watched both last night.

    I think i like this one! Especially the action :)

    Its fun but its got seriousness along with looney toon style coyote/roadrunner gags (his gravity defying moment with bug eyes in the water training session as exhibit a).

    Is his trainer voiced by the guy who did the head guy in ajin and the grandpa in that alice anime??

    The progress is really good. The action is swift too. His first mission was pretty interesting. Im glad the action level is still top notch.

    The guy in yellow is annoying. I hope he gets better. The boar head guy is wild. Whats his story? I still love the action. The little skits at the end credits are fun too.

    This last episode was incredible! All three got there moment. I still think nothing can top taboo tatoo in terms of insane matrix style camera moves. But this is great fun. I cant believe the ending either. Really moving :)

    In other news:

    The Kimetsu no Yaiba: Hinokami Keppūtan video game will get a release for PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Steam in addition to the previously announced PlayStation 4. The "demon killing competitive action" game is still slated to debut this year.


    The game will feature a story mode that will allow fans to relive the story of the first television anime. A battle mode will let players play as different characters.

    Sounds sweet! Wonder if they'll do what they do in the tales of games and have skits while roaming the open world map?

    The anime will be getting a 2nd season titled Kimetsu no Yaiba: Yūkaku-hen (Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Entertainment District Arc) this year.

    Haruo Sotozaki is returning to direct the second season at ufotable, and Akira Matsushima is again designing the characters. The cast from the first television anime season is returning, including Katsuyuki Konishi as Tengen Uzui.

    So was the movie that made news in Japan last fall just a clip show of the first Season? I heard it made some kind of record. I never looked for it as I assumed it wasn't anything new.

    The movie is a direct sequel. Continues on from season 1. The 2nd season will pick up from where the movie left. So it's essential viewing if you follow the anime.

    It's become the highest grossing film ever in Japanese box office history, easily beating the likes of Your Name and Spirited Away. Considering this happened during Corona time, that's gotta be a big achievement. Also Spirited Away held the record since 2001.

    Thanks. I couldn't tell if it was new material or not.

    The shows are on crunchyroll. Will the movie be separate then? I mean will you need to rent it on something like vudu?

    It's not been released on any official online streaming sites yet (as far as I know anyway).
