Tanjiro Kamado is a young boy who returns home to find his family massacred. His sister, Nezuko, is the sole survivor but when he tries to save her, she transforms into a Demon and attacks him. A nearby swordsman, almost kills Nezuko, but spares her after noticing she is different from other demons. Tanjiro goes on to learn how to slay Demons and becomes a member of the elite Demon Slaying Corps. Tanjiro and Nezuko are then thrown into a world of danger as they hunt down Demons, search for a way to transform Nezuko back to a human, and track down the monster responsible for killing their family.
Learning to destroy demons won’t be easy, and Tanjiro barely knows where to start. The surprise appearance of another boy named Giyu, who seems to know what’s going on, might provide some answers—but only if Tanjiro can stop Giyu from killing his sister first!
