Franchises who gain a global reputation tend to have a lot of spin-offs. Likewise, as Demon Slayer started climbing up that ladder, fans craved more and more content featuring their favorite characters.
It is common for manga and anime to be made into something of the opposite genre for the fans. Parodies of the show like Attack on Titan: Junior High and Naruto’s Rock Lee and His Ninja Pals are very common.
Similar to these, Demon Slayer also got something for the fans.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba’s gag-comedy spin-off manga called Kimetsu Gakuen! will begin serialization in Saikyou Jump issue 9/2021 on August 4th, 2021.
The original mangaka of Demon Slayer, Koyoharu Gotouge, will be making a commemorative illustration for the Weekly Shonen Jump issue #31.
Natsuki Hokami will be writing and illustrating the upcoming spin-off. Hokami has also worked on the action-fantasy novel Gokutei Higuma.
The spin-off Kimetsu Gakuen! will be based in a school setting with all of the characters as students or teachers there. It makes sense as school-themed comedy spin-offs for popular franchises have been common in the manga and anime world for ages.
It is supposed to be a gag comedy manga. And with Giyuu Tomioka’s silent and distant demeanor, I am sure this one will be hilarious.
Demon Slayer achieved a global reputation big enough that its recent film Mugen Train broke records after records at the international box-offices.
The animation, story, and characters are nothing less than perfection. Trust me, the fight sequences will captivate you enough to give you goosebumps!
With all the pain that the Demon Slayer manga gave us, I cannot wait to see my favorite characters again!

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Koyoharu Gotoge. Its publication in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump began in February 2016 with 19 collected tankōbon volumes released as of present.
In a world filled with demons and demon slayers, Kimetsu no Yaiba follows the lives of two siblings Tanjiro and Nezuko Kamado after— the murder of their family at the hands of a demon. Their hardship does not end there, as Nezuko’s life is spared only for her to live as a demon.
As the oldest sibling, Tanjiro vows to protect and cure his sister. The story traces the bond of this brother-sister or better yet, demon slayer and demon combo against the odds of an arch antagonist and the society.
