A sorrowful tale of siblings in which the fates of humans and demons intertwine...begins now!
typical violent anime: not as good as akira and no where near as good as Spirited away
- Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba: Part 1 review by tm
I enjoyed this but I cant help feeling annoyed by the very weird editing of the title sequences which got on my nerves and eventually made me give up as the film was good but not great. a pretty typical anime, violent, beautiful, standard Japanese adolescent stuff.
nowhere near as impactful as Akira or as subtle and eloquent as Spirited away, it is hard to understand how this has captured the imagination of so many.
