It’s been awhile since we’ve done this segment, so why not do it with a more recent anime title that’s picking up a bit of a following. Every now and then we like a good demon hunting/demon anti-hero story, so after doing some combing through the web we found something that might be just what you need to get your ani-demon fix on! With that in mind our Crunchyroll Spotlight pick is none other than Demon Slayer!
Keeping our word of making this overview as spoiler-free as possible, here’s what you’ll be in for should you decide to check out this series:
A kindhearted and intelligent boy named Tanjiro Kamado lives with his family while making money selling charcoal. Everything seemed good and fine until his family is attacked and killed by demons (Oni in Japanese) leaving him and his sister alive. If that wasn’t bad enough his own sister Nezuko became a demon (why does that sound familiar?) but still shows signs of human emotion and thought. It was then that Tanjiro became a demon slayer to help his sister turn human again and avenge his fallen family.
If you’re on the lookout for action, dark fantasy, and demon slaying, then you’re gonna want to check out this series on Crunchyroll and also FunimationNow. This Fall you can also check out this series on Toonami on Adult Swim.
That will do it for us on this post. Until next time, stay nerdy! 😉
