We're declaring it: Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is Ufotable's most beautiful production so far, and there's no doubt why it's one of the hottest titles in 2019. What a lot of otakus don't know, however, is that this series has been there for quite some time now. Yup, it was first serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2016. But it was only until Tanjirō Kamado graced the screen that the series became a big hit. In fact, 2019 proved to be a good year for the manga series as its sales reached greater heights because of the anime premiere in April. It is also the year that the anime received several awards, including Best TV Anime at the Newtype Anime Awards.
To those who haven't seen it, we encourage you to do so now. The dark anime series only has 26 episodes for the first season, and if you're into all things demonic, we're sure you won't mind bingeing it in one night. Don't worry, though, because if you find yourself still hung over the series, there's a movie adaptation coming your way in 2020. Of course, with the massive fanfare that it's been getting worldwide, there's no wonder if it spawns more seasons in the coming years or if there will be spin-offs based on it.
So what are you waiting for? If you're curious about the series and you want to get in on the action yourself, check out these websites to watch Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba now!
