  • "I wanna become the wizard king! " "I wanna become the king of the pirates!"

  • "I wanna be hokage! Believe it!"

  • "I just want to save my sister"

  • Right now we're in an interesting time period for shounen.

  • Instead of the tried and true fun loving plots which are just excuses to have fights, shounens moving in a new direction where the story actually matters.

  • Demon slayer, Dr Stone, and Fire Force are EXTREMELY GOOD examples that come to mind.

  • So if you're interested in what this new wave is all about, let's dig into Demon Slayer.

  • Holy moly it's motherfucking Scamboli.

  • If you don't know this is my series on the radar, where I find good anime so you don't have to.

  • Today we're talking about Demon Slayer, so let's get to the summary.

  • We follow our protagonist, Tanjiro through the Taisho period of Japan.

  • He's a nice kid selling coal in a different town, and is forced to be away from home one night due to a storm.

  • He comes back to discover his family has been annihilated by demons, the only survivor being his sister.

  • Thing is, his sister has been transformed into a demon.

  • Tanjiro goes through grueling training and hardship to become a demon hunter capable of curing his sister.

  • Demon Hunter is a show you can very easily find yourself being addicted to.

  • The plot itself is very intruiging and opens itself up to tons of potential.

  • I've read the manga, and the plot progresses at a really nice pace.

  • Where many shounen have frustratingly long-ass arcs this story seems to always be on the move.

  • So if you're sick of generic shounen story-telling this is the show for you.

  • The story telling is not some Shakespearian masterpiece, but even if you took away the entertaining ass fights, I'd still be interested enough to stick around.

  • Let's move on to the characters:

  • Definitely one of the strongest points this show has is its main character.

  • Wheras most shounen protags (protagonists) say to themselves "I must be better... I can't keep getting my ass beat"

  • Tanjiro skips all of that and just does better.

  • He's extremely quick-witted, doesn't have any shitty motives, ISN'T ANNOYING, and is overall a really, really likable character.

  • I'm not sure how far we're going to get in this season, so I'll play it safe by saying the main cast is pretty enjoyable.

  • I could see this guy getting annoying, but I personally don't feel that way because I didn't hear him screaming in the manga, but everyone has a nice amount of growth to their character, so even if you don't initially like them, you eventually will.

  • So with that out of the way, lets move to the next segment.

  • Which is art.

  • At face value, the art is nothing special.

  • And that's what I believed until mid-way through the episode.

  • While the show isn't generally "pretty", it does make for some very special moments, namely this woods scene.

  • I'll also note that the art is very efficient. Confusing or just unclear moments in the manga were effortlessly cleared up in the anime adaptation.

  • If they keep this up, the action scenes later in the series could be really God damn cool.

  • And that's what I think is what matters most in a show like this.

  • Hopefully the future episodes look the same.

  • I wouldn't listen to a single one of these songs by themselves, but much like the promised neverland, the music seems to always fit the mood.

  • While I wasn't that into it, a lot of the comments I saw were foaming at the fucking mouth for this music, and I think that means something.

  • People rarely give a shit about music in anime besides the openings, so when I see a bunch of people take note of it, it's gotta be good, right?

  • Now i'm not bullshitting when I say that this will be the best anime of the season.

  • But if you're new, which a lot of you are, and think I'm just talking my shit, look at my track record.

  • Oh! What's this?

  • I called this one, this one, this one, and this one all becoming popular.

  • I don't know about this one because I was too busy to finish it, but my point is still made.

  • Check out Demon Slayer if you're into shounen with a little bit of a dark twist.

  • There's action, a nice story, and I'm pretty sure it's going to get popular.

  • So that's it, that's the video.

  • This is the part where you stop watching, but in case you are still here, I'm going to be doing a thing next Friday.

  • I'm not gonna be late this time.

  • So yeah, peace.
