But that ephemeral warmth is shattered one day when Tanjiro finds his family slaughtered and the lone survivor, his sister Nezuko, turned into a demon.

Kimetsu no Yaiba will most likely be the fan favorite of the season because of its dark storyline as well as being animated by the very popular ufotable. ufotable does excellent work as every show they put out goes above and beyond the expectations every time. If you don’t enjoy violence or gore, then this probably isn’t the one for you. For my anime fans who love Shingeki no Kyojin, Full Metal Alchemist, or Samurai Champloo, get ready for a really good storyline and lots of emotional pain.
