Koyoharu Gotouge's Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba follows the story of Kamado Tanjiro and his sister, Nezuko. The siblings face a cruel fate when their family is killed by a demon called Kibutsuki Muzan, and Nezuko is turned into a demon. Tanijiro sets out to find Muzan to avenge his family and turn his sister back into a human.
Tanjiro trains to become a demon slayer, while Nezuko trains to control her demonic instincts to kill and eat humans. Zenitsu and Inosuke, other demon slayers, later join the siblings.
The Hashira (or the highest-ranking members of the demon slayer corps) complicates the party's journey, who discover Tanjiro's unique case of a demon slayer traveling with a demon (Nezuko). Tanjiro learns various breathing technics to increase his demon slayer skills as Nezuko matures into her demonic powers.
Tanjiro and crew fight high-ranking demons called the Twelve Demon Moons with the Hashira and later discover that Nezuko's case is much stranger than initially thought.
