General Synopsis

Tanjirou Kamado lives with his impoverished family in a remote mountain. As the eldest son, he took on the responsibility of providing for his family after his father's demise. On a frigid winter day, he descends to the local village to sell charcoal. Forced to spend the night in the house of a peculiar man due to nightfall, he learns about the existence of malevolent demons that crave human flesh.

Upon returning home, Tanjirou's worst nightmare becomes a reality. His entire family is brutally slaughtered, with the sole exception of his sister Nezuko, who has transformed into a flesh-eating demon. Consumed by hatred and despair, Tanjirou embarks on a journey to avenge his family and find a cure for Nezuko, striving to restore her humanity.
