haloyoshi

Started watching for little sister in a box, but now I'm waiting for sleepy darito boi redemption arc. Why do I care about yello triangle simp? I have no idea. I see electricity powers, I smile. It's not logical.


TerrariaWeeb

Oh don't worry you won't be disappointed


Naive_Formal_523

Honestly Nezuko keeps tempting me to watch it.


OpGotReddit

tbh I started because I was looking for soke more anime stickers for my laptop and loads of people were making them for Nezuko and I thought she looks cute and and I should watch. Than I started watching and after the first few episodes there was no stopping me


franandwood

Do it

I like the anime but the manga was pretty boring, it essentially got the perfect adaptation. It definitely is carried by ufotable, but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s good.


Normal-Ambition-9813

Well i think its really carried hard by ufotable. I doubt the title will blow this much if not for the animation, the story was good but not a masterpiece like most people claim.


OwariZetsubou

I didn’t really like the story at all, seemed kinda boring and repetitive at some points. But damn ufotable did such a good job with it.


Normal-Ambition-9813

The story is just your average shounen story. But the final arc feels rushed tho and most deaths feels like forced to have drama.


CamiCat_414

True And I actually like the animation because it has two art styles one for attacks and one for the rest


m3m31ord

It's a solid manga with a banger anime, the manga is a solid 7/8 shounen, another thing going for it is that it doesn't have fillers, it's 200 hundred chapters with no interuption on the story. And the art is gorgeous in the last stretch of it.


green_mango_

Best part of it is that it's finished.


cuella47o

Dem breathing style Slashes are so clean even for a manga then ufo takes their drug and make it hella better

Commenter said >if manga bad why sales good Quite literally because the anime is so popular.


vatelite

Anime contributes to sales boost


Beast_Mstr_64

Would you be surprised if I said it wasn't before the anime aired


RedtheEricnevermore

All of it is the best part of it.


Several_Antelope2457

I find it enjoyable. Thats all i care.


GoatClover

Yeah exactly. I don't wanna see 10 million analysis posts about an anime being over or underrated. I just wanna enjoy it.


OpGotReddit

Nezuko is more than enjoyable, she is life


ashburhan

the soundtrack slaps though


roloiii

Go Shiina and Yuki Kajiura are awesome


thebigcrawdad

Best legs in all of anime dont u/ me.


RDRKeeper

Idk i kinda like Kanao.


SKruizer

Brother.


crono220

Demon slayer has a very basic story but its done so well, with its likeable characters and production value in the anime. Nezuko is so adorable and does get some nice development in the next arc. If there was a simp breathing technique, Zenitsu would be a god among men.


Chronoflyt

That said, I bloody well hated Zenitsu in the anime. His whining, desperate personality coupled with his absolute uselessness in 90% of a fight - if he fights at all - drove me up the wall. Some of the hashira (iirc, that's what they're called) also seemed far too similar to, if not embodied entirely, stock character tropes for my liking. That said, Tanjiro is a likeable character, and Nezuko had a lot of personality even when she's just in the background.


Elder_Scrolls_Nerd

The plot and character growth is the best to me. Seeing Tanjiro struggle to take down Rui to being able to surpass any of the Hashira and take on high level upper moons was cool.


Scorppio500

I watched it for Nezuko and boar head dude.


Accomplished_Bat_893

All the above


LUCKYISBEST

I watch it for shinobu


ekwowie

ı love mitsuri


xdman11

It definitely wouldn't be as popular if it wasn't animated by Ufotable


Just-Xav-Official

I read for the waifus


Static-Wolf

I watched it for Inosuke


x_boygamer160

i watch it for Michael Jackson


TerrariaWeeb

I watch it for almost everything except for nezuko, she is great and all but she is probably one of the least interesting characters for me


Xegquez

I find Nezuko boring


getnosc0ped

i watch for all the blood


im_in_every_post

hot take: there are a lot of girls way cuter and way better than nezuko in other animes


cuella47o

Hmm well its all about "preference"


Xegquez

True


Kurumi_bst

I don't understand why people judge anime so thoroughly at times. Like sometimes I go into a forum or sth and people are writing an essay on why this anime is good/bad


OpGotReddit

Ikr man, if you don't like it than just dont watch it and keep ur opinion to urself. if u like it than just watch it and enjoy it and dont force ur opinion about it on others


mutuza223

she is 12 it is illegal but if you watch because she is cute and adorable not in a lewd way then it's ok


KingOverHeaven

14* but yes


mutuza223

no at the beginning she is 12 and she turns 14 at the ending


BakedSorcerer

I know this is an unpopular opinion but I think demon slayer is overrated. It's still good just overrated.


joshthejay

I might get downvoted to hell for this. But I don't particularly like Nezuko I find her boring to watch most the time shes on screen (the only exception I can think of was her fight with the ball demonbehos name escapes me at the moment) and I think shes a little boring compared to Tanjiro, Zenitsu, and Inosuke. Shes a good motivator for Tanjiro to keep slaying demons but to me thats all she is. The best part about her imo is her design which I think is pretty good and her blood demon art which I think is pretty neat


Xegquez

i think the same


Chance_Car9335

Nezuko is cringe


Nut_shells

I watch for the plot


Beast_Mstr_64

~~not much to watch then ehh~~


raceraot

I love Nezuko


floofandmemes

Am I the only Demon Slayer fan actually interested the story?


OpGotReddit

Nah bro, the story is incredible and the character development is seriously some top notch stuf


AnimeLover_993

I watch it for Zenitsu


MissterSippster

Haha Good joke


AnimeLover_993

You don’t get jokes too often huh


MissterSippster

This was my first one


Engaging_Otaku-Mode7

My disappointment is immeasurable and my day is ruined. Seriously tho, are anime girls the only reason you watch anime?


merayBG

I came for Nezuko but stayed for Inosuke


melloBTSARMY

Hwhehehebsb u my twin sista!


melloBTSARMY

Or brotha


takenwasuridea

Tho, why did ufotable make half of the animation 3d in the movie, did the animators have personal problems or something (not complaining, the movie is sick just like in the manga but i really need to know)


KingOverHeaven

It's just cgi. Probably to save budget or to make it easier lol


takenwasuridea

Thank you for informing me


PoemBudget1826

EVERYTHING!


exboe

Same


cats4life

Demon Slayer really tries to be a good shonen story, much more than it tries to be a great story. It excels in character design, power systems, fun and entertaining personalities and quirks, with a decent sense of humor and atmosphere. Most shonen nowadays tries to just be good shonen, and it works to the genre’s benefit. It’s kind of a shame that the Demon Slayer manga never quite reaches outside of that. I would have said the same thing about Jujutsu Kaisen or My Hero Academia a year ago, but the last couple arcs of both have been all about saying, “Okay, we’re really good shonen manga. Now it’s time to be amazing stories.”


SKruizer

So, here's my hot take very few people will read: Kimetsu no Yaiba doesn't need to be more than a really good shonen. After Naruto and Bleach ended, and One Piece was in kind of a standstill, we ran out of big SHONEN (with a lot of emphasis on that) to watch. BNHA never really cut it for me, neither did SnK (until season 4 that is), and OPM is great but it's a satire shonen, not an ACTUAL SHONEN (although it does become very very good for itself later). Then enter KnY, with cute and relatable characters, great character development (a must for a shonen to be good), and mfing Ufotable to back it up, with that episode 19 everybody and their mother went crazy about. Kimetsu no Yaiba was just at the right place at the right time, and I recognize that just the vision to release it at that point in itself is an admirable skill. It made me fall in love with the series instantly, and if anything happens to Kanao I'll kill everybody in this room and then myself. (Yes, I have read the manga.) Just like Jujutsu Kaisen came out just as KnY hype train was about to leave the station (get it?), riding the big shonen uproar and making a name for itself, although just the basic shonen formula wouldn't make it this time, but boy did they deliver. Anyway, TL;DR big shonen ended, shonen hungry fans hug pretty shonen coming out. Success.

I think it's wrote nestuko by their pronunciation

Seeing smol characters happy in anime makes my dead heart warm.

There you go arguing about the animation while on gintama no one complained but instead enjoyed the paint version on the popularity poll arc


_alicekun

I use the same analogy when watching MHA. I only watch it for Uraraka.


New_Veterinarian1220

I watch it for the fights 🙃


asnplayz

I watch it for society


onlyplayscaptain

They really fucked up with the song for the climax of Tanjiro vs Rui, imo. The vocals in that really put me off, so much that it actually soured my memory of what was otherwise an amazing show a bit


KingOverHeaven

How do you mean?


onlyplayscaptain

I just mean that [the vocals in this song](https://youtu.be/vvOiJUmtxog) were *really* not my taste. An off-vocal version would have been much better, IMO. Thanks for prompting a discussion!


KingOverHeaven

Ah okay. I think it was supposed to push how emotional it would be as a turning point for the Kamados but I understand why you'd want something different lol


onlyplayscaptain

Yeah, I'm sure that was a motivator for using that song, and I doubt many share my distaste for it. I just compare it to the film, Mugen Train, and how much more I was satisfied with the climax of the action sequence(s), which just used a simple, yet strong instrumental track. Or even the other sequences from the show that had instrumental / understated choir type vocal BGM, like the thunder clap and flash sixfold sequence!


GreenDiamond_YT

Demon Slayer's animation can either be top tier or really bad at times,but I really don't care about animation for the most part the show is just amazing.


Daexr_

Nezuko chaaaan


KayabaSynthesis

It has much more to it that just Nezuko. She adds to the expirience, but is just one of many, many amazing characters.
