Great animation, but full of cliche, with hollow predictable plot. Edit after finishing 1st season: Half way through it became more interesting, I'm glad I didn't drop it after first 3 boring episodes.

This show is absolutely fucking amazing. Holy shit UFOTABLE are absolute gods.

I am not much into Shounen cliche but this one was really interesting. The first few episode were a bit boring as the plot was going way to fast and most of the stuff was predictable from other Shounen anime(s) but after that It became something that you'll definitely wanna continue for a longer period of time. Best part of the anime was Nezuko, I am glad she became a Demon. Her expressions were adorable. I am hoping for more Seasons of this anime, more honestly, an entire anime adaptation of the manga.
