Content: (please note that content portions of a review may contain spoilers):
This is a coloring book; chances are you aren’t buying this for the storyline.
Reviewing a product such as a coloring book is difficult when things like ‘story’ and ‘character development’ don’t apply. Most coloring books are simply images drained of colors. What stands out about this one is that “Demon Slayer” creator Koyoharu Gotouge has personally selected the pictures in this book.
Aside from some original sketches he has provided, he has also grabbed select images from the manga to include here. Said pages have had some of the shading details removed so that artists can color the images to their own specifications, and it’s a personal touch most coloring books don’t have. If you are a fan of “Demon Slayer” and wanted to color your favorite characters without messing up your manga books, this is the perfect collusion for you!
