- Nezuko Kamado: Nezuko is Tanjiro’s sister and the sole survivor of the demon attack of their family. The attack lefts her being turned into a demon, however unlike most newborn demons she retains some of her emotions and memories and is able to recognize Tanjiro and not attack him.

Although he is cowardly and has low self-esteem he wants to live up to the expectations others set up for him. His focus and drive in avenging his deceased teacher helped him wash away his cowardice and second thoughts.
Inosuke Hashibira: Inosuke Hashibira is a Demon Slayer in the Demon Slaying Corps and a travelling companion of Tanjirou Kamado. He is usually seen wearing a grey boar mask, with a shirtless version of the Demon Slayer uniform. Inosuke is short-tempered and proud and makes a big deal out of fighting opponents stronger than him claiming that’s his only hobby. He will not think about the difference in power between him and his opponent; this often led him to be in danger. Besides this, Inosuke is always trying to compete with Tanjiro and provoke him into fighting with him and usually failing.
Demon Slayer Kimetsu No Yaiba Review
Tanjiro is a typical kind-hearted shonen protagonist, although his journey is written better than most shonen anime protagonist. He doesn’t magically gain new abilities, he works really hard for them, unlike most recent shonen. He also really loves his sister very much which is apparent in his desire to help her find a cure and avenge their family. The opening song ‘Gurenge’ is a really catchy and soulful track and the same can be said about the ending song ‘From the edge’. The animation by Ufotable is exceptional too making this anime a must watch this spring.
Conclusively, I think Demon Slayer Kaimetsu No Yaiba is must watch and gets 4 out of 5 stars.
