Snack Attack: Demon Slayer

by Melanie Totenberg

With so many of us stuck at home, we’ve had the time to catch up on the latest shows or even to give shows we may not otherwise have watched a try. Anime isn’t considered a mainstream TV and film genre like it is in Japan, but last year Netflix reported a fifty-percent increase in viewership of the genre compared to the previous year. The new Demon Slayer movie, Demon Slayer: Mugen Train, took the crown from Studio Ghibli’s Spirited Away for the highest grossing Japanese film globally.

If you’re new to the franchise, Demon Slayer or Kimetsu No Yaiba is a shonen manga series that got adapted into an anime TV series. It is set in Taisho-era Japan and follows Tanjiro Kamado and his sister Nezuko Kamado as they set out to cure Nezuko’s demon curse. The two siblings are the sole survivors of their family following a demon attack. It is also the incident that causes Nezuko’s curse. Its popularity is often attributed to its great animation, strong characters, and interesting story.
