Important Characters of Demon Slayer

 

If you still haven’t watched any season of the series and are interested to have a look around with the main characters and their specialties?

 

Then I got you covered.

 

Tanjiro Kamado

Tanjiro Kamado

 

The main character of our big anime, Tanjiro Kamado is a 13-year-old boy who is an extraordinary fighter among the rest of the demon slayers.

 

He is that little boy who is all set to get revenge for the awful murder of their parents and siblings and also treat them right for the state they left his sister in, in short, that way they turned her little sister into a demon.

 

He also has another motive now in life, which is to find a cure for her sister and turn her back into the cheerful soul she used to be.

 

Nezuko Kamado

Nezuko Kamado

 

The cutest little demon ever and Tanjiro’s most beloved younger sister. She was the only one from the entire Kamado family except for Tanjiro who survived the demon, Muzan’s attack.

 

Due to the attack, she is now turned into a demon with all her mind gone.

 

She later regains her memory enough to recognize her brother but is said to wear a muzzle to her mouth stopping her from attacking anyone.

 

However, she is seen to learn everything little by little.

 

Zenitsu Agatsuma

Zenitsu Agatsuma

 

The very unique name indeed, just like the one that holds it. Zenitsu is a very cute and cowardly boy who has been forced to join the demon corps to pay off their debts.

 

He there joins exactly when Tanjiro does. He is very talented but happens to scurry away when he needed to perform.

 

Thunder Hashira had trained him in the Thunder breathing style but happen to only learn the first of those techniques.

 

He tags along with Tanjiro on a mission due to his attraction toward Nezuko. Later in the story learns to overcome his fears and fight bravely.

 

Inosuke Hashibira

Inosuke Hashibira

 

What is your personality like? Outgoing? Introvert? Ambivert? Hm…. Outgoing personalities indeed are very attractive.

 

Their charm is the way they interact and enjoy that every bit isn’t it? Just like our Inosuke here.

 

He is that one big dude of the group who is ready for a fight anytime, anywhere.

 

He was raised by two wild boars after his mother sacrificed herself for his life.

 

He always wears a boar mask in the memory of his deceased boar mother.

 

Kanao Tsuyuri

Kanao Tsuyuri

 

“Life is the best teacher”, this proverb has proved itself countless times with a hint of false in it.

 

Life teaches you so many great lessons that you, at some point become a master in it.

 

In the way, we have Kanao, a girl who has been taught tough lessons in life and by life.

 

From growing up in an unhealthy household to being sold as salve at a very young age, she has been through a lot.

 

Therefore, she shuts down her emotions and joins this army of demon slayers. Her fast response and sharp skills are no doubt her charm.

 

Kyojuro Rengoku

Kyojuro Rengoku

 

My my, talk about being breathtaking, Kyojuro had got it all. He is one of the main supporting characters of the anime.

 

He is known for his enthusiastic personality, his inhuman speed, crazy reflexes, and everything that makes him more and more attractive.

 

He is an amazing warrior with his extraordinary sword skills and actions. He is also very disciplined and strict exactly how his mother raised him.

 

His abilities are unquestionable is all that we can say. These were a few of the MAIN characters and so now without eating up any more of your time let’s review the brand new second season of our lovely anime, Demon Slayer.

 

The section below may have a few spoilers from the series, please be aware.

 

 

 

Review of Demon Slayer Season 2

 

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, a series that made history this year by ranking 8th in the best-selling mangas of all time.

 

It has recorded a circulation of over 150 million copies, including the raw and the digital ones.

 

This series had received so much love right when it was released in 2019 while the fans named it the “best shounen of the decade”.

 

Talking about an overall view of the new season of the anime then one word could fit in: “wow”.

 

Season two has brought a lot more with it, from the adorable and fun scenes of Nezuko to hilarious shots of Zenitsu and Kyojuro.

 

The season has also brought amazing action-packed in it leaving us mesmerized by every sword that moves.

 

The fights are put out very artistically. The mesmerizing and energetic soundtracks pull you within the scene wherein you experience a very live action of those beautiful words.

 

The anime had made a total balance of emotions, love, and action together. The sibling bond of Tanjiro and Nezuko would only grow strong with time it seems.

 

Speaking of Nezuko, we would most likely see intense Nezuko this time around with a lot more action on her plate.

 

The whole anime is a package of wonderful characters put together. A kind-hearted and good soul, Tanjiro, who could walk miles for his sister, a stupid yet intelligent Zenitsu, the most adorable bean Nezuko, a boy who just wants to prove himself, Inosuke, and a lot bunch of people who make this whole anime series and great experience.

 

Many viewers are not satisfied with the pace of the story or the length and are complaining about how short season 2 was to the first season.

 

What are you waiting for? Get set and go watch the new season of the anime and come back with YOUR reviews.
