I think I’ve mentioned it in my previous posts, but Demon Slayer is my favorite anime. Many people I know think Demon Slayer is just some overrated Shonen anime. But honestly, it isn’t, it is an amazing anime that has a unique story.
The story is about a boy named Tanjiro, who becomes a demon slayer after his family is slaughtered by one and his younger sister, Nezuko is turned into one. He makes it his goal to turn her back human. So far there is one season, consisting of 24 episodes and a completed manga. There is also a movie that came out a few weeks ago called Demon Slayer Movie: Mugen Train.
Now; To discuss the animation, the animation studio is Ufotable, and i just want to say that Ufotable is my favorite studio cause it does some great animation. But something that makes demon slayer in particular stand out is how its animation can go from super detailed to just, Just… I don’t know how to describe it. Its like, a background character.
My favorite, super detailed animation moment is when Tanjiro is versing Rui the Spider Lower moon Demon. The animation is so advanced it just has me shook, like completely shook.
Another great moment is Zenitsu vs Spider Demon. Zenitsu is such a funny character, but when he is asleep, don’t, I repeat DONT mess with him. He thinks he is very weak and helpless. He also cries way to much. When he was younger in training, he was struck by lightning which caused his hair to turn yellow. Anyway, he had an amazing fight scene was crazy good animation.
now that ive shown you the crazy good animation let me show you some crazy weird but good in a different way animation. I love the expressions that the characters make in demon slayer, they are specifically unique to this anime. I also love the eyes both in the ‘Weird background’ animation and the normal animation too.
The animation is irresistible! its amazing, epic and funny at the same time. Fun fact: The reason I Started to watch Demon Slayer is because of the opening song, Gurenge. (After that, I became a fan of LiSA!)I heard it somewhere and spent an hour trying to find out which anime it was from.
I finally found it, listened to it and then convinced my Dad to watch the anime with because he also likes anime. I ended up watching it with my whole family and they loved it.
