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.

avatar

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

avatar

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.

avatar

I love this show too much like it's probably stupid how much I loved the whole thing from beginning to end, I am completely biased towards this show. It was so pure and wholesome while also being completely badass. I cannot wait for the Movie and it better release in the UK.

avatar

Got some good lines, but overall is too stereotyping.

avatar

Thought I'd check this out because of ufotable and expected another Katsugeki/Touken Ranbu but somehow ended up with a popular shonen jump adaptation :laughing:... dropped out about midway during it's airing and only now finished the show. While there is some of the expected visual glamour including very stylized combat techniques to elevate this but the format is safe and the writing not really great. Still, there is a decent amount of action and interesting demon powers to overcome so that should be cool..? It's just that they main trio(quartet) kinda sucks. Not only are they extremely one note but two of them are just played for comedy 80% of the time - and it's the kind of comedy that makes me want to blow my brains out. The fourth wheel Nezuko that should drive the story is mostly stashed away in her basket and can be used conveniently to save the day when required. Could have been decent if it wasn't for those distracting issues...

avatar

Beautiful animations and the storyline is good too! Unfortunately there is only one season.

avatar

Great in every aspect! The only negative thing I have to say about it is that although some of the characters are meant to have a temper or be a crybaby, it is sometimes over the top and quickly gets annoying.

avatar

As someone who is always critical-minded against hyped Animeshows, I have to say Demon Slayer satisfies my expectations. I‘m really not a shounen fan, so it‘s difficult to reach a rating over 8, but this time, I‘ll give it a 9/10. I really loved the fun scenes, especially in the last episode. And yes of course there are moments which are stereotyped, but I think it’s okay.

we need a 2nd season beside the movie
