What They Say
The Demon Slayer Corps plunges into Infinity Castle to confront Muzan. Shinobu engages in a fierce fight against Doma, the Upper Rank 2 demon. Poison doesn’t work on him, so she finds herself in an intense struggle. Will she be able to defeat the demon who killed her older sister?! Then another demon appears before Zenitsu and blocks his way…

Content: (please note that content portions of a review may contain spoilers):
Shinobu is reported as dead through the crows’ connection with corp members. Zenitsu runs into his training partner, Kaigaku, who has now become a demon. Kaigaku has always believed that their master never saw him as anything special, but Zenitsu can’t convince him otherwise. Luckily, Kaigaku is a new demon, and Zenitsu is able to show Kaigaku his original 7th form.

Tanjiro and Giyu are making good progress as they head towards Muzan. They are suddenly stopped by Akaza, an Upper Rank 3 demon. Giyu is flung and out of the story for a moment, but when he returns he has manifested his mark. Tanjiro tries to think about a way to defeat Akaza when he recalls conversations with Inosuke and his father. It gets him thinking about how to defeat Akaza

Meanwhile, Nezuko is fighting to become human again.

In Summary:
This series pretty much dominated in 2020 both in manga and film form. While there are those who are not fans of this series, there’s a good reason why so many are. Every time I read a volume of this manga, I instantly get absorbed into the fast-paced, action-adventure with so much intelligence. This imbued throughout the storytelling and within the characters. The protagonist, Tanjiro, isn’t just getting by with his perseverance, he’s actually using his brain to come up with ways to creatively fight. So many shonen stories are simply about leveling out somehow, but this is on a different level. It’s so enjoyable to see character growth continually. This fuels the story and energizes it more. In short, I simply don’t ever get tired of the story.
