Kimetsu no Yaiba

Kimetsu No Yaiba Figures

The sole survivors of a demon attack.

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba was first serialized in 2016 and has been a popular series. This demon-slaying series has its anime and a Kimetsu no Yaiba movie due in 2020.

A young man, Tanjiro Kamado, finds his family massacred by a ravenous demon overnight, with only his younger sister, Nezuko, clinging to life. As he rushes to take her to a doctor, she transforms into a demon and tries to attack her brother, but her humanity quickly resurfaces when the two come under attack. Realizing he can still save his sister, Tanjiro vows to avenge the death of his family by becoming a demon hunter, all while finding a cure for his sister’s affliction.

Tanjiro - Kimetsu No Yaiba

“big brother will save you no matter what!” Tanjiro Kamado is a simple and kind man who made his living selling charcoal in a nearby town. Once he loses almost all his family to a demon attack, he gives up his work to join the Demon Slaying Corps. With his unwavering determination, Tanjiro trains under Sakonji Urokodaki to avenge the death of his family, but most importantly, to help his younger sister Nezuko recover from her transformation into a demon.

Nezuko Kamado

“I know you can do it, Big Brother.” Nezuko Kamado is the second eldest in her family and is known around town for her kindness and beauty. Although she survived the demon attack on her family, Nezuko’s blood was contaminated, turning her into a demon. Despite her transformation, she still shows compassion towards humans, leading her brother Tanjiro to believe her humanity can be restored. As a demon, she usually wears a bamboo gag to prevent her from attacking humans.

Zenitsu Agatsuma

“So you were carrying such a cute girl with you…” Zenitsu Agatsuma is Tanjiro’s companion and fellow Demon Slayer. Despite his cowardice and self-defeating attitude, he is a powerful fighter and one of only a few to survive the Demon Slayers Corps’ Final Selection exam. Zenitsu, despite being young, also has a penchant for chatting up the ladies, although he’s usually met with rejection.

Inosuke Hashibira

 "PIG ASSAULT!" Inosuke Hashibira is another of Tanjiro’s Demon Slayer comrades, although his inflammatory attitude contrasts Zenitsu’s. Due to the tragic death of his mother, Inosuke was raised by boars and sometimes struggled to understand his fellow humans. His outfit is one of the most distinguishable: his shirtless Demon Corps uniform has been adorned in furry hides while he wears a hollowed boar’s head over his own.
