“Yes, I would recommend it to someone, but it would depend on the person. If a person likes a good storyline, good animation, and likes fighting and demons, then yes, I would recommend it,” says Sophomore Sol Lucas. He also states that the series is a “Top tier anime.”

Other fans also express their love of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba and express how much they enjoyed the series.

“What I enjoyed the most about Demon Slayer: Kimesto no Yaiba was the storyline,” says Sophomore Odalis Torres who rewatched Demon Slayer 7 times. “It was well developed and animated beautifully. During their journey to becoming powerful members of the Demon Slayer Corps, the characters gain plenty of wisdom that helps [to] further their character development. Each character had their unique ability, power, and problems to resolve and everything was well made. Each episode was more and more interesting which made it addicting to watch.”
