Im enjoying this manga so far. It has that flavor like rurouni kenshin and a bit of Inuyasha because of the demon parts. Art is nice and character design i like a lot. I hope the story stays strong. Im sure some of the story could be flesh out better but i am enjoying it a lot. Enjoying all the differe character personalities.

Kimetsu no Yaiba is SWELL. Love reading the zany, horror/sorrow-tinged adventures of 3 idiot swordsmen weekly

I really like this series! I'm happy it's doing well, because it deserves that. It's a fine adventure manga with an amusing trio of protagonists. I like pretty much the entire cast. Wrote a long review detailing just about everything I like about it. This manga is a treat.

As of chapter 31, it doesn't really set itself apart from other shounen action series in terms of premise or execution. It's not one that I would recommend to those who are apathetic towards this genre, but if you're at least somewhat interested, you can do a lot worse than Kimetsu no Yaiba.

The best thing about this series is probably the characters. They're a little trope-y at this point, without much significant depth, but they're a fun group to watch, and they have a unique dynamic that's unlike other shounens of its ilk. The relationship between Tanjiro and his sister is definitely the highlight. And I like how differently Tanjiro's growth (both physical and mental) has proceeded. He's powerful, but not too powerful that the fights become boring to watch. And there's some attempt to make fights more strategic than usual weekly shounen action series standards, so thankfully no shounen power-ups as of yet.

Rather than a revenge story, Kimetsu no Yaiba is a story first and foremost about saving people. Even with his entire family murdered by demons, Tanjiro still continues to believe in possible friendships between humans and demons. It's definitely refreshing to read about a protagonist who, although not a pacifist, hasn't lost that core goodness he began with. While the whole series is a bit amateur-ish in terms of plot/characters at this point, the heart of it is good, and it definitely has potential to develop further, which is more than I can say about a lot of other WSJ series currently running.

Interesting premise (even if it doesn't rock the boat that much), interesting art, interesting character designs, and decently written so far.
I hold high hopes for this series.
