Kimetsu No Yaiba: Demon Slayer
Kimetsu No Yaiba or Demon Slayer is actually an adaptation, like many other anime series. It actually has a number of volumes and the adaptation of the series draws a parallel.
The series revolves basically around Tanjiro Kamado, the main character of this entire show. Him, along with his sister Nezuko will go on a hunt. The story sets off when one day his family is killed by a bloodthirsty demon. His sister is now half-demon.
Thanks to Tamiyoka Giyu, the siblings were able to recover from the trauma. Apparently, demons are a thing in this world and one has to stay protected. Tanjiro faces a lot of issue in the first season, fighting demons without proper training but for the sake of his sister.
The Hashiras: Demon Slayer Corps
The Hashiras are the pillars who uphold this society. They are the powerful and trained Demon Corps who keep them in check. Kochou is my favourite, and yours?
Let’s have a look at our hashiras:
- Tamioka Giyu – The Water Hashira
- Kochou Shinobu – The Insect Hashira
- Rengoku Kyou Jurou – The Flame Hashira
- Iguro Obanai – The Snake Hashira
- Tokitou Muchirou – The Mist Hashira
- Kano Ki Mitsuri – Love Hashira
- Uzui Tengen – The Sound Hashira
- Hime Jima Gyoumei – The Stone Hashira
- Shinazugawa Sanemi – The Wind Hashira
All of them live under their one and only master and leader, who is powerful but has no sight. They must bow to him, never speak more than required and respect him.
How do you like wisteria? These flowers are highly disliked by demons and all the hashiras live within these ground protected by Wisteria. It’s absolutely beautiful.
When Will Season 2 Release?
The 6th volume marks the final episodes from the adaptation of the series. I hope the next season will continue to show the Infinity Train and the demons in it.
Tanjiro along with Inosuke and Zenith, also his sister, continue the journey. As promised to the master, they shall kill them all. Maybe as the pandemic situation improves we’ll have a confirmed date. It was 20th October previously but now we don’t know.
