Demon Slayer (Kimetsu no Yaiba) is a story featuring Tanjirou Kamado’s quest to reverse his sister Nezuko’s demon transformation and to take revenge for the brutal murder of his village folk. The producer of this action packed anime, Yuma Takahashi, recently talked to the Anime News Network about his most anticipated scene from the Manga, yet to be released in the Anime.
There has been no confirmation about the continuity of the series into its second season, however, Takahashi says that it will be up to fans and their level of support and interest that determines whether Tanjiro makes another appearance or not. That being said, there are still a number of scenes from the manga that fans may be able to look forward to, which the Takahashi elaborates on:
“Without spoiling anything, one thing I’m most anticipating and want fans to look forward to seeing is the battle with Rui, whose episode we are actually premiering today. The fight scene between Tanjiro and Rui is quite an unprecedented level of accomplishment from Ufotable.” He adds to this by saying, “It even exceeds what fans have seen in previous episodes. It’s not just that I’m excited, but it was also ufotable’s aim to create the most exciting fight scene possible. And everything else that happens in Mt. Natagumo is something I can’t wait for the fans to see.”
Kimetsu no Yaiba :
Ever since the death of his father, the burden of supporting the family has fallen upon Tanjirou Kamado’s shoulders. Though living impoverished on a remote mountain, the Kamado family are able to enjoy a relatively peaceful and happy life. One day, Tanjirou decides to go down to the local village to make a little money selling charcoal. On his way back, night falls, forcing Tanjirou to take shelter in the house of a strange man, who warns him of the existence of flesh-eating demons that lurk in the woods at night.
When he finally arrives back home the next day, he is met with a horrifying sight—his whole family has been slaughtered. Worse still, the sole survivor is his sister Nezuko, who has been turned into a bloodthirsty demon. Consumed by rage and hatred, Tanjirou swears to avenge his family and stay by his only remaining sibling. Alongside the mysterious group calling themselves the Demon Slayer Corps, Tanjirou will do whatever it takes to slay the demons and protect the remnants of his beloved sister’s humanity.
