  • Kimetsu no Yaiba Discussion Thread



    As you are all no doubt aware, the long-standing king of the industry was recently toppled in an abrupt coup. To recuperate from this catastrophic loss, we need to honor the fallen by reading, thus promoting, its spiritual successor. So, without any further ado, I present to you Kimetsu no Yaiba (Blade of Demon Destruction); the debut of Koyoharu Gotōge's Gothic period piece, which features the time-tested coming-of-age story of young charcoal-seller-turned-demon-hunter Tanjirou. Like the courageous lad mentioned previously, let us raise our own blades to the sky as we bury a legend. Thank you and may God be with you, friends.

          Great art, likable protagonist, threatening main antagonist, decent supporting cast, period piece set in one of Japan's most romanticized eras, technical-but-not-overly-technical fights, demons!! etc. Furthermore, I'm sure it'll conclude within ~200 chapters (it's currently 25 in). Yeah, I'd say so. Easily one of the best battle shonen I've read. However, it's still shonen. No matter how good it is, you can always find better in other genres. It's up to you, really.

            I'm not looking for a masterpiece obviously, I'm just concerned that it will go down the route almost every modern shounen has, and become really generic. The premise sounds interesting though, so I'll give it a shot.

              Well, like I said before, it's currently only 25 chapters in so I can't confirm or deny its reactionary genericness.

                                I pretty much marathoned it over the last two weeks or so. It's alright really nothing special but I like the idea of a superhero school, I might end up dropping it like I did OPM but it still slightly has my interest.

                                      Tbf the only reason I clicked this thread is b/c I thought Morph was going to be doing a parody of these kind of threads. This looks interesting but atm I'm not feeling it.
