    "I was completely unaware of what Jujutsu Kaisen was but boy am I glad that I checked this manga series out. Much like Demon Slayer: Kimtesu no Yaiba, it starts out normally but things quickly turn for the worse and next thing you know, you're seeing some really cool action sequences going on."

    "If you're looking for a manga like Demon Slayer, an anime like Demon Slayer even, you should definitely check out this manga/anime combo. Not only is it a classic, but it has a lot of similarities with Demon Slayer in terms of overall tone and action sequences."
