General Synopsis of Kimetsu no Yaiba

Tanjirou Kamado, the big bro of a humble fam on a secluded mountain, steps up to the plate after their dad passes. He hustles charcoal in the village to keep them afloat. One chilly eve, he's warned of night-stalking demons craving human snacks.

Homecoming turns grim as Tanjirou finds his fam wiped out, except for sis Nezuko, now a demon herself. Swamped with rage and sorrow, he's on a mission to avenge his fam and flip Nezuko back to human.

As the tale of Tanjirou and Nezuko unfolds, the anticipation for Kimetsu no Yaiba: Hashira Training Arc skyrockets. The artists behind the opening track promise an auditory feast that complements the visual spectacle. Fans are encouraged to share their excitement and spread the word about the upcoming season's release. Stay tuned, and don't miss out on the action-packed journey of Demon Slayer!
