DEMON SLAYER: KIMETSU NO YAIBA is based on a popular manga by Koyoharu Gotoge and serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. This melancholy tale of humans and demons has captivated readers with over 3 million copies in print, quickly becoming a mainstay of the shonen manga genre. The story takes place during the tumultuous Taisho period (1912 to 1926) when two siblings must survive after their family is viciously slaughtered by demons.
