About this deal
Of course this volume has one of my favorite characters and that would be the incredible Sabito! I would LOVEEEEEE to see more of him in this manga! I don't know what it is about him, but he is just amazing. Two chapters of him (and a little bit in a third) is not enough for me!

The story of Demon Slayer takes place in a world where demons roam and terrorize humans. The main characters are demon hunters, individuals who fight to protect humans from demons and to avenge loved ones they have lost. The protagonist, Tanjiro Kamado, is a teenager who lost his family except for his younger sister, Nezuko, who was turned into a demon. He sets out on a quest to find a way to heal her and return her to her human form. I've seen the anime, and it is indeed and visual and auditory feast. However, there's a lot of nuances in the manga that don't carry over to the screen. For example, I've always thought Tanjiro suffered from survivor's guilt. It's pretty subtle but it is implied. Coupled with their sibling bond, that's why Tanjiro will never let go of Nezuko until he's found the cure to her demon nature. It stems from being the only sibling away from home when a demon killed all of his family and infected Nezuko.
In Demon Slayer, we follow our mc Tanjiro, whose family is one day murdered by a demon. The only survivor is his younger sister Nezuko- except she is turning into a demon! Determined to save his sister and avenge his family, Tanjiro begins training to become a demon slayer. And the story goes on from there...

The setup is pretty interesting. In this world there are demons who can walk around at night and feed on humans, a bit like how Vampires work in fiction but they have more variation in their design. Our main protagonist is the young Tanjiro who's taken in as a demon slayer after his family is murdered by a demon and his sister is infected. He hides his demon sister and tries to train her to be good, which is unheard of. What makes Demon Slayer so popular is the combination of its epic story, endearing characters and thrilling action. The characters are all very distinct and have their own story and motivation. Tanjiro is a determined and brave character who is willing to do anything to save his sister, while Nezuko is a beloved character for her loyalty and determination to protect her family. The other demon hunters, such as Inosuke and Zenitsu, also add a touch of humor to the story. Trigger warnings for blood & gore depiction, death of a father mentioned, death of a grandmother mentioned, death of a mother & siblings, axe & knife violence.This bond is the theme of this series. The author likes exploring bonds between siblings, and duality of conflicting natures. Tanjiro and Nezuko's bond isn't the only one that will be explored in this story. So very shonen indeed. I watch it with my 8 year old son. He is absolutely obsessed with it. He’s 8 but we haven’t sheltered him from much at all growing up. He watched Deadpool (over and over) at age 6 with no issues.
