    Ufotable really said "fuck the budget, I'll do what I damn well please" and dropped probably one of the best anime seasons in years on our asses

      @Conner They put so much effort in animating Demon Slayer because the staff at Ufotable loves the series, just like the staff at Mappa loves Chainsaw Man.
      Just because you particularly don't like a series doesn't mean that it doesn't deserve a good treatment, in Japan they love Demon Slayer because of the thematics it touches: "Taisho Era (storic accurate even in the design of the clothes), Family values, Personal values (empathy, kindness, righteousness etc...) And the fact that it isn't so fucking long like some of the other shounen, naturally draws attention cause you can buy the whole series and don't have to wait your entire life span to see the ending.
      People often forget that Demon Slayer was from the start a product for Japanese, not for the rest of the world, we are just a byproduct of the immense hype that the anime got, even if the entire world hate Demon Slayer as long as in Japan the people loves it they will continue to make it regardless.
      People don't understand that the entirety of anime industry is marketed towards Japanese and not Foreigners, they can survive even if foreigners stop watching anime today.
      Ufotable also is a particular studio that can turn off offers from producers and do what the fuck they want, unlike other studios that depends on the money of the production committee. Personally is my favourite studio even by work ethics, a couple of shows a year but with astounding visuals rather than 20 anime a year but most of them mediocre or straight up shit, that's why the Isekai and dare I say Fantasy (with great displeasure since is my favourite genre) genre is so fucking garbage nowadays.

    Season 2 of Demon Slayer reminds me why I like Shonen stories. Yes, the characters and story are simple, but sometimes you don't need depth to tell a good and entertaining story. Sometimes, I just want to watch our heroes struggle to overcome the impossible. I want to see them push themselves beyond their breaking point because they absolutely have to win. I want to see them earn their victories and celebrate.

      @F U S I O N If you’re referring to the captain fight, that episode wasn’t filler. By definition, filler is something that doesn’t happen in the source material, the captain’s fight is anime canon as said by the mangaka himself since it’s happening in between a timeskip in the manga.

      @Nathan Zanon Well, i can't do anything about your tastes. Everyone has different tastes so i won't criticize you for it. As for me i absolutely loved the Mugen train movie and season 2 and it's not just me. A lot of people loved it. Like 99% of the people loved it. The rest 1% are basically haters who don't want Demon Slayer to dominate over their favourite anime. They call the story trash as an excuse for that lmfao. They treat animation as a third party as if it's not part of the anime and say that animation is the only thing carrying DS lmfao. If they really think that it's just animation then what about DS being the highest selling manga in 2019 overtaking One piece's manga? They really have no answer to that and say that it is the result of overhyping it lmfao. As for me, I absolutely loved the story and i am sure a lot of people will too. Haters who don't want DS to dominate will never like it and i don't care about them either. A majority of the people liked it and that's what matters. No one cares about what a single person thinks. DS has peak fights and it's perfect for people who are interested in fights. The story isn't trash in the slightest tho. People call it trash just because they don't want DS to dominate lmfao. They really need to grow up. The backstories are amazing, the animation is incredible, we get peak fights, the story is simple but decent and the characters are lovable, what else do you want from a shonen anime?

    • Nathan Zanon
      Nathan Zanon 7 days ago

      @AaDi animation is the best there is, by far. however I agree about the plot. I wasn't able to watch the arc after the train (the one with the sound guy), due to it being absolutely boredom. And oh I have tried, I forced mysellf to watch the first season and I found the movie TERRIBLE, for real. Way worse than the first season.
      I understand people like it though, but I really can't. And it puzzles me why Jujutsu is not the one everyone talks about, cause I really think it's a very good shounen, considerations taken. And I can't get why also HxH isn't the most famous shit ever given how good it is. However, as I said, I get it is a matter of personal taste.
      However, the movie is dog shit (the train one) I'm sorry, I can't understand how anyone liked it.

    • AaDi

      @Wahterr ikr. Leave them be. It's mostly aot fans calling DS mid just because aot has good storyline. They expect a good story like aot from DS which can't happen since each anime has its own story. They are calling it overrated and some shit but something is overrated only if it's right or if it's actually good. They are just unhappy with the fact that DS is overshadowing their favourite anime. The storyline is not mid in the slightest. It's simple but still soooo good. The animation is top notch, the visuals are amazing and the fights are epic. What else do you want from a shonen anime? Aot's storyline is complex but you don't always need a good story. Sometimes simplicity is the best. Even a simple story can turn out to be really good if the author works hard and gotouge really did. Also the people calling it mid have an undeveloped brain as DS is not mid in the slightest. It shows that their brain is undeveloped as no human with a fully developed brain would ever call this show mid. We don't even deserve Ufotable and people are still complaining. We are getting god tier animation within a year and that shows the amount of love Ufotable's putting into DS. It's not just aot fans calling it mid but also some anime onlys. Treating animation as if it's a third party and not part of the anime is sooo stupid bruh. Animation is a part of the show and they are like DS has just got good animation and nothing else.They are either blind that they can't see the beauty of this show even with 2 freaking eyes or they are just closing their eyes and are not even trying to see it's beauty. I don't give a damn about what they call it, it's just that the word 'MID' is starting to piss me off now. I am just waiting for S3 and S4. They are gonna be absolutely amazing. Once S3 and S4 come out they won't even dare to call the anime mid let alone trash and overrated.

    The thing about Demon Slayer is that it's not only a beautifully animated series, it is also filled with simple, but meaninful messages. When I started watching season 1, I was in one of my lowest points. I almost died cause of kidney complications, a doctor raped me while I was in the hospital, then my ex boyfriend left me, and I also was having family issues. My life was in shambles and I was thinking of giving up and almost took my life. A little later in the way of recovering I discovered the series, and heard Giyu say: "Don't grovel like that and give your enemies the chance to kill you. All your doing is making yourself vulnerable... The weak don't get to make choices, all they can do is be relendlesly crashed by the strong... Don't cry, don't succumb to sorrow, this isn't a time of despair, I know it hurts, I understand. There's no way to turn back time. Feel the rage. The powerful, pure rage of not being able to forgive will become your unswerving drive to take action" it was almost as he was saying it to me, and I swear I felt a shift in my heart. Now I live by those words, and three months after of almost dying, I'm finishing my bachelors degree, going to therapy, went back to work, and going to the gym. This show was trully life-changing for me. I devoured the series, identified with Tajiros's heart, and fell in love with so many characters!
    PD. Honary mention to Rengoku's last words. And sorry for any spelling errors, english is not my first lenguaje :)

      @mrkiky It is supernatural, Full Concentration Breathing was stated to give humans “the strength of demons” in the first season. They obviously needed to do this or we would watch our heroes sit like ducks while demons jumped around them. But they still get exhausted and wounded like any normal human would.

    I was like,
    "nah, how good can season 2 be."
    Then I finished the 2nd from the last episode.
    If I were to imagine how I looked, probably like a deer in headlights. Hair stood up, eyes watery, jaw on the floor, body locked and my mind in absolute disarray. Ive never had so many emotions play at once and I didnt know what to do. Found my self staring blankly deep in thought as the credits rolled. I was speechless.
    My thoughts now, dont sleep on Demon Slayer, S2, Entertainment Arc. It is a masterclass of Anime. The story telling, the pacing, animation and stakes being at its absolute highest. It was level of its own.
    With that said,
    Id say, undoubtably, the best anime, Ive ever watched.

    The fact that Ufotable have added more scenes to the fights to really flesh them out and give them so much more weight than the manga genuinely makes it one of the few cases where the anime is better than the manga. Most of the final fight scene between Uzui and Gyutaro is unique to the anime and it elevates it to another level.

    I wasn't 100% on board with this anime until like, episode 13ish when Inosuke joined. at that point, it became another level with the comedy and chemistry between the 3 young slayers. The art and combat was just BRILLIANT. And S2 was ALL GAS no BRAKES. I was for real hooked because there was no stop action for like 7 episodes in a row.

    Before, when Mugen Train came out and I watched it, I thought Rengoku's demise was just for shock value, but the development and effect on Tanjiro in season 2 makes that initial shock value abuse worth it.

    • Eccentric Artist512

  • ASmudgeInTheWindow
    ASmudgeInTheWindow 4 months ago +25

    I think what I love the most about season 2 is the fact that killing off Rengoku in the movie added to the suspense. Watching the Mugen Train, seeing Tanjiro behead Enmu, and then watching this close, epic battle, between Rengoku and Akaza, you're thinking, "wow, this is so cool!! but Rengoku is gonna win, he has to, he's the hero, and the Demon Slayers haven't lost yet" and then he frigging 🍩and you're just sitting there in complete shock, like, what? wtf? no, that wasn't supposed to happen!! So when you're watching season 2, and the big epic fight scenes, you don't know what direction its gonna go in. You can't trust the plot armor, because it's been stripped away, which made it just SO much more climatic and suspenseful, and also make you feel so relived that Uzui survives. Thats just my opinion though :p (**Also, if you're gonna reply/add on, please don't reply with any manga spoilers, I have not read it yet**)
    Also, also, on an unrelated note, which anime is this from? 0:40

It wasn't even about opinions or forcing stuff on others, which I guess you havent had the time to actually look into what you're talking which I dont blame you. If anyone it'd be you who I'd be unfreindly to since your attitude is just speaking for others and saying things as if you somehow know more and 90% of the time there isn't any truth to what you say either you're just getting worked up over nothing which even the people i've argued with don't have issues with. But either way I dont really care for your opinion of me. So I wont be replying any further to you. Your past 2 replys show enough about you. I'm just saying yes, you have gotten even more pretentious. Say that I have never had any good experiences all you want since you want that'll only prove my point to myself.

      @Friend I wasn't being pretentious nor intentionally going off topic just to prove a point, if you think so
      Then you must not have many good experiences with people, which in this day and age, Is very common.
      Im just genuinely concerned at this point, less caring about your opinion as, at the end of the day, it is your opinion afterall, but moreso in the fact that you're still here.. commenting, continuously, responding to everyone in your own way.
      Whether you took my words as pretentious and righteous is once more another issue that lies with you, one that isn't necessarily bad considering the climate of online debates, but one that kinda worries me as it just continues to show that there's a constant spread of negativity, that even I exhibit at times, though I guess it took seeing it for my own eyes to make me realize just how far things have gotten.
      I think the most ironic is your name, for someone named Friend, you are rather unfriendly

      A large majority of the people who watch anime are simply brainless and worship shows with terrible storytelling, a basic and unoriginal plot, rigid and unnatural character development in return with outstanding animation. They're a bunch of overgrown children who watch shows for looks only and not what makes a show a masterpiece. Now I'm not saying that a show with great animation and a huge budget are only accepted for the art style, I'm also not saying that other people can't like or have their views on different shows, I'm exaggerating on how I view people who indulge in anime and I understand different people have different taste, but I do believe that a lot of people only watch shows because they're eye-candy and make excuses about the plot or etc.

    What I would like to think is that the characters don’t have much depth because we don’t rlly know who they are and they don’t rlly know who they are (referencing tanjiro zenitsu and inosuke). As it goes on I’ve noticed we’ve learned more about them. I’ve noticed a huge difference from season one inosuke to the entertainment district inosuke. Zenitsu screams slightly less, and I feel as if tanjiro is starting an emo phase, questioning himself n shit.
    There’s going to be that last season or few episodes where all these puzzle pieces just come together and you just get brain fucked in the best way.

    You said it, good sir! I stopped caring about what others think of my opinions of shows. I'm not here to be original. I'm here to be me, and, to me, Demon Slayer is something truly special! It is the only show that has managed to recreate (and exceed astronomically) the magic I felt with my first series that introduced me to the world of anime and manga. I was 10 when I first read Rurouni Kenshin's manga. Despite the artist's sins, the manga is something deeply special and important in my journey as an anime and manga fan, and I will love it forever...but I waited more than 15 years for something else to recreate that magic. I found some truly great shows and manga along the way, but none of them were quite the same. Not until Demon Slayer came along and I will love this series forever, too. I am here until the end.

    There's a reason why Ufotable get this amount of respect. Just look at the work they've done. I still remember well watching the Mugen Train movie with my friends, the chills I got during the final moments of the Rengoku v Akaza fight, the last dying speech of Rengoku and then his final smile of pure joy . Ufotable made Rengoku my most loved anime character with just a 2 hour long movie even after I've watched like 250+ animes. Ohh gosh, THANK YOU UFOTABLE FOR EVERYTHING ❣️

    Exactly. That’s what everyone misses. You don’t need it to be “complicated” to be good. If anything, the “complexity” of a lot of animes are super convoluted and unrealistic (even within their universe). Demon Slayer is straightforward in a simple, beautiful way. The story and motives are great enough to make it a classic and all time great.

    This truly is 11/10 animation, my main issue with the season is that I just wasn’t nearly as emotionally attached as I was throughout mugen train, the constant lack of character development and my biggest personal complaint, I’m not a fan of plot armor victories / power ups. Tanjiro should’ve died multiple episodes throughout the latter half of the season. Demon slayer truly is just a turn off your brain and watch this AMAZING animation and action. I can see why it’s popular but for me it’s just an 8.5/10 show, still very good but nowhere near the level of hype it gets.

    For me I felt like season 1 was extremely overhyped because of episode 19. Mugen train got me more invested in the show and the Entertainment district arc finally had me obsessed with the show. I really despised the main 3 in the first arc because of the shouting especially when they all did it together which very much improved in s2 😅 but the show has really grown on me to the point I probably overhype it now haha with how much I love it. (PS overhyped doesn’t mean hate I’m just referring to how a lot of the time people reference ep 19 in everything about s1, I’ve really enjoyed Demon Slayer overall especially after this last arc)

Been an anime enjoyer since I was 7yo with Doraemon, Dragon Ball and Sailor Moon days; I have seen how much anime has been much more and more grown and appreciated universally. I also like the fact that Ufotable has done impressive flashy animation but still not far revolving around the manga's initial art style.

  • Zoë
    Zoë 11 months ago +1466

    I think that there's something beautiful to the simplicity of Demon Slayer's story. It's just sincere. There's no pretension or trying to act smarter than the audience, and there's a beautiful sense of compassion for every character. What you see is what you get in the best way. It takes a lot of humility, I think, to just tell a story like this without trying to over complicate it. Because it might not have sprawling intrigue or impenetrably deep themes, but it's the Shonen series I've most consistently been able to emotionally engage with. I think that there will always be value in a story that can engender empathy like this, to let you just be happy for, or sad for, or get angry on behalf of its characters. I think we'd lose a lot more if we forgot how to write stories like that than if we forgot how to write densely esoteric stories.

The work they did on Season 2 of Demon Slayer had my jaw in the floor more times than I can count. I'm very grateful that they are the Studio producing Demon Slayer, because they do PHENOMENAL work, and Season 2 has proven that by far. Anyone calling this level of work mid is blind, plain and simple.

    And man i cried at the end of mugen train. Well overall the whole show was 10/10 experience. This was just like steins gate the first few episodes are not that good but the rest is masterpiece.(I just wanted to mention steins gate 😊)

  • G Toyadha Tagya B
    G Toyadha Tagya B 9 months ago +56

    As someone who already finished reading the manga, I can safely say (at least for myself) that while it's true that Ufotable boosted its visual clarity and mood by 10x, the story was absolutely solid, the conflict and how the author executed it was great, it was intense, and I think the author was consistent on what he's trying to accomplish, and the most important of all... I enjoyed it.
    I know the ending was a bit controversial, and for me it was indeed fell a bit flat and a bit implicit compared to what I've read leading to it, but the more I think about it, the more I think it served its purpose to make everything came full circle.
    He had this big theme that existed from the very beginning of the series, a Chekhov's Gun I'd say (because I didn't know THAT was the thing he was trying to accomplish), that he delivered by the end of the series.
    And I'd say... While it's not something I thought I'd get by the end of the series, it's a proper way to end it.
    That being said, I personally don't think this series is overrated, I think it deserves its current reputation.

    • Yoshika Miyafuji
      Yoshika Miyafuji 6 months ago +2

      To judge if the manga deserves it current reputation or not, I think you have to compare it with other manga that are not as successful. Demon Slayer / Kimetsu no Yaiba sold much more than Berserk or Hunter x Hunter, for example. These are manga that are considered among the best the medium has to offer, at least if you ask people who have read a fair amount of manga. Compared to Berserk, or even compared to the average manga, the art of Demon Slayer wasn't very good in the manga, I believe. The story, as the video said, is solid, but also nothing that really stands out. I think it's fair to say that what really stood out is the excellent anime adaptation, which really carried the manga to those crazy sales.
      So yeah, personally I don't really think the manga deserves its reputation, though I'm happy for the author that it worked out for them. Even with a art that's not super great and with a story that's not super great, the mangaka did their best and was rewarded greatly for their hard work, and that's pretty inspiring.

      Hard agree. I'm very picky with anime and manga because a lot of them are excrutiatingly dragged out, usually for no reason. Demon Slayer is fast-paced and engaging, so it gets a win from me in that regard. Even if some weebs will complain that "iT WaS RuUuSHeDdD".

  • n1ce Maiden
    n1ce Maiden 5 months ago

    The animation is stunning and when there is battle animation, it's fire! What killed my hype was the constant flashbacks/lengthy chats between the characters in the middle of so many battles. The pacing is very clunky and there seem to be many scenes that are drawn out for the sake of being drawn out when we could have spent more time observing any of the character's growth/pacing it better.
    Don't see many complaints regarding the cut and paste nature of flashbacks being spliced into a fight, that it feels like I'm not watching the same show as everyone else who is hyping it

    I think you bring up a really good point with its simplicity. I was having a conversation with my friends and how one of the oddest thing about Demon Slayer was that there was no true internal falling out in the organization. There was no Danzo or Orochimaru, no Aizen, no corrupt world government, no secret assassination in the jujutsu organization, no spies pretending to be heroes. Shonen series love having these big organizations having huge internal strife in them and Demon Slayers are just like, nah, the Hashiras got each other's back.

Every single episode during the fight felt like it was about to reach the end just because everything was animated to such a quality that I thought they were at the climax, but the fight kept going and the animation kept increasing in complexity and quality. It reached such a point that I have to constantly remind myself to temper the expectations for the next season. But somehow, I feel like they'll still somehow raise the bar yet again. I don't see how they possibly could after that flashy spectacle, but I look forward to seeing whatever they put together for us.

    Gyutaro is honestly my favorite Demon Slayer antagonist yet for how his relationship with Daki mirrors Tanjiro's relationship with Nezuko. He serves as an excellent foil and with his offer to turn Tanjiro into a demon even makes Tanjiro realize that he and Nezuko could've been the same had they gone down the wrong path.
    I also like just how unrepentant he is. Even saying that he knows even if he was reborn he would still be a demon. He wishes his sister had a better life but he knows that he isn't redeemable and never pretends otherwise.

      @DZ Games lmao, i hate muzan too...for the exact reasons as you, the other demons atleast exhibited human qualities, but muzan is more like a force of nature than an actual person....which bothered me. Even UM2 I respected more bc even him being a sociopath was atleast relatable enough than muzan equating himself to an act of God lol

      @bush i believe rengoku functioned primarily as a thematic character as opposed to a deep one.... for example the symbolism behind rengoku is thats he'sa prot-typical good guy shounen hero (think all might from mha) but he still got killed despite embodying all the things that shouldve worked in other anime. I feel like THAT was the purpose for rengoku's character, that even seeing a symbol of humanity get wiped out our characters still had enough heart to keep going and NOT be consumed w rage or grief.
      idk if that makes sense...

      i actually respected the hell out of gyuutaro for admitting he's bad and like ACTUALLY wants to stay that way. So many villains in anime these dfays get converted over to the light and its just so cheesy after a while.

    Every time I'm watching anime with my siblings/friends my mom always walks in and says something like "watching cartoons?" or "why don't you watch something for adults?" but we were watching the end of the entertainment district arc and my mom just said "that looks cool." I think that alone says everything that needs to be said about the ED arc

    I agree
    Demon Slayer's strength is in its simplicity. There's no one shoving some philosophy down your throat or anyone with some clearly overcomplicated plan. You just have relatable, fun characters (Both heroes and villains), a pretty clear power system and a solid plot.
    I read the manga after season 1, loved it and yet, the anime surprises m over and over again, deepening that love

      @Himejima Gyomei no worries mate, message received. I can understand someone like Gotouge had to write and illustrate the manga (in hindsight) on his own. While it is very normal for manga chapter release dates to be weekly, I am amazed Gotouge was able to still keep each, if not, almost every chapter published within a week.

    • Himejima Gyomei
      Himejima Gyomei 6 months ago

      @L.F.P. man well said but i disagree in some points
      Your'e right about tanjiro and kanao not having much scenes as a couple or inosuke and aoi and more of that i feel like 205 chapter is short for ds
      Cuz it didn't give many characters the chance to envolve in the stroy and didn't let us see their characters from all aspects and even their full power such as douma or kukoshibo or muzan
      + Like kuko or douma or even muzan ,at least we must've seen a few battles other than the last arc fights or the creator should gave them each one an arc so we delve into their characters and behaviors
      But i really love ds even though it's rushed (cuz the creator had familiy problems) and i'm a big fan of it but what u said is right
      And i disagree with shinobu and giyu's ship cuz we don't even know it's a ship or not but the others are cuz we know they married in the end of the series

    The reason why Ufotable's work stands out is because they have a dedicated digital team that blends their 3d animations with their 2d animations. Their studio has a lack of walls, allowing each department to work closely together on creating visually appealing frames and to build a strong sense of rapport. Before anyone says it, no, they don't have unlimited budget, they get the same amount as any other studios. Ufotable focuses on quality, not quantity.
    Canipa Effect videos cover a bunch on Ufotable and the interview with Yuichi Terao, Chief of Ufotable's Digital Team on Anime News Network. Also yeah the CEO did pay back the tax evasion scandal. He did it to invest in his animation team and to keep his animation company afloat, while its bad it makes sense.

    • Nicogram

      @Karma110 He doesn't carry it. Undoubtedly the best animator working in their productions, and makes the best cut for each anime/movie they make. Arguably the best animator of all time. But if you had to name on hard carry it would be Yuichi Terao and even then. The fact that ufotable has very few stand out (like industry wide names) animators in their shows is thanks to this guy. Besides, just Masayuki Kunihiro, who is definitely their best in-house animator has made some of the best cuts in anime.

      @M. Ram from the Visual Novel alone, Mahoutsukai no Yoru is going to have a high quality production. Might be even better than Heaven's Feels. Also the VNs fight scenes already feels like it's been handled by Ufotable.
      Though then again still lowering my expectations because I don't know how they'll pull it off in a movie format
      CSM as long as it has the same level of production as JJK then it's going to be fine

    As someone who finished the manga, I gotta say, Demon Slayer is one of the best simplistic stories I've ever had the pleasure of reading through. It definitely earns its uniqueness along the way with particular choices that I've never before seen in Shonen, and the characters do have a good level of depth to them (which is impressive consider how simple they generally are). Where I think it delivers the best tho is at giving a great complete story, a full journey, of not just the protagonist but of the world he submerged himself in. It keeps getting better story-wise from here, and you have epic battles yet to come. If UFOtable manage to get all the way to the end with this as an anime adaptation with THIS level of choreography on multi-layered fights with multiple people... holy fucking shit the future is BRIGHT, its SHINING, you think you got your eyes burnt yet? You have yet to stare at the sun itself.

      @Johan Liebert Luffys powers is a 50/50 in the scale of what they do and look like fourth gear was just in the manga downright ugly and dumb(I admit in colour and polished it did look better though). Really ruined the feeling and I also remember there being a lot of grumbling in the fandom about that arc. I have heard that improved later though so I might check it out again at some point. Right now im busy catching up on some fantasy mangas and manhuas like solo leveling and village hero.

    • kenji214245

      @Johan Liebert you brought having "read more" I just countered that after reaching a certain ammount its no longer relevant. And I never said how long those are or if they are completed 😆 (and I do consume a lot since I tend to binge it it bursts in my spare time)
      As for the ratings its not really that important either we can just look at average high rated shows in most genres of media and its easy to confirm the that masses often had trash taste. It should be dumbed down, easy to digest and just make people feel happy and voila they consume it like a bunch of crackheads. Also for ratings One piece has a head start with lots of generations following it.

    That was really the time, when i understood a craftsmanship beyond comprehension, even if it didnt have high octane all non stop action - animation, it has set the tone of being the most elegant and beautiful animation quality ive ever seen.
    Then Fate series happened and Demon Slayer...

    I love Ufotable and when I started watching Demon Slayer after 2 years of being out. I saw Ufotable Studio I instantly knew it was going to be banger. They have the best people who love what they do and push themselves to be better. The best animation Iv'e ever seen was from Fate Zero and Fatestay Night. That came out back in 2011.. No surprise when they make a action anime that is simple anyone can get into it . Plus it's just beautiful masterpiece

    I think Demon Slayer's simplicity is what made it explode in popularity. When every shounen anime headed into weirder (JoJo) and more complicated (JJK) plot elements, nobody else was trying a sure fire way to rile up every weeb. Katanas with elemental powers? Why is there not an anime of that yet? It's so obvious and ufotable animating it only made it more popular.

    Something I recently noticed about red district arc is that it works as a redemption about what happened in the movie with Rengoku and Akaza. In that fight, Tanjiro and the other two did nothing but see how a Hashira struggles against a moon who have buried several Hashiras before, but this time, this time they could do something.
    Yeah, Tanjiro was on his limit since Daki and still evolved like he got a two months training arc, and the quantity of deus ex machina about power levels, poison resistance or speed surpasses any arc shown before, but all of that allowed them to struggle their way to help Uzui to avoid Rengoku's destiny, and that's what the series needed after infinity train arc.
    And that not counting the soundtrack, animation, direction and, well, everything.

    To me, the reason Demon Slayer is so well received is because it is so incredibly sincere that it almost hurts. All the Demon Slayers are so damn convicted to their goal of destroying the demons and saving people that it's honestly so heart warming in our day in age where everyone always has an angle they are trying to exploit. The characters care to such a degree that people can't help root for them even while making jokes about the show being "cringe". Demon Slayer is a show that makes you stir in your seat because you can remember a time when you believed in something so deeply and purely as a child does, before we became calloused and disillusioned.

      @Gelena31 The bad guys are kinda cool tbh. The show is carried by good villains (at least in later arcs).
      But maybe that's just because stereotypical bad guys in anime and manga tend to be like Dragon Ball villains. Some kind of dumb strong guy who likes tormenting people, with so little nuance they go into negatives. By comparison the demons seem like a writing masterclass.

    When the demon slayer first came, I watched the first 2 episodes and for some reasons I dropped it thinking it was one of shitty anime with a predictable and repetitive story. After watching this video and thought that it should be at least decent level and gave it a go, and my god I thank myself for doing it. It's wonderful animation and breathtaking fights made me think it is definitely one of the best anime the industry could ever give. When everything is over, all I could ever get is goosebumps and a great amount of respect to the team who made this.
    I hope that the people who hesitate can go and try watching this masterpiece
