And the countdown to the hype has begun. With Ufotable animating this, at the very least it will look great even if the story isn't (though based on the opinions of those who saw the screening ahead of time, it's gonna be amazing).

I heard rumors this will be a 2 cour but going by Ufotable's style of adapting/producing anime, this might be a split cour. We'll have to see.

Tanjirou’s forehead is OP

Episode 1 -
What an excellent first episode! I love the soundtrack. The characters look so good!!!

Can't wait to see best boy Inosuke in action.

Other than the Gyo 'adaptation', this is the first ufotable anime I've watched. I'm really impressed. I hope they keep the quality consistent throughout the season.

Episode 1

Just as the episode's title says, that was cruel. After a routine day at work, Tanjuro finds his family having been slaughtered by demons. And to add insult to injury, his sister Nezuko has turned into a demon herself. At least she's still alive, but being a demon after being exposed to demon blood, she's targeted for slaying by the demon slayers. Tanjiro's anger sure was misguided, but that soldier did find a way to keep her alive while suppressing her demon instincts. That was great and the visuals are as to be expected out of Ufotable.

Interesting start, it introduced protagonist Tanjirou along with the fictional setting of their world. The animation quality looks great and it didn't take long for him to encounter a bloody scene in the first episode. Oh Nezuko...

Not just her though but seeing those sights of death is really tragic. The catch is that Nezuko didn't die and is instead shown as a demon.

On most parts, I think the episode was executed well. Even felt the music had a consistent feel to it. This was probably also the most emotional and impactful episode for its premiere out of the other Spring titles so far. I want more!

I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy this, but since they need to setup the protagonist's background story, it was a bit slow, but nearing the end it got interesting real fast. It tugged on the heartstrings a little too given the reason behind why Tanjiro wants to become a slayer, but isn't that the case with almost every series out there?

Off to a good start .
I didn't expect to see so much CGI in an historical anime but it was well executed. I'm pretty sure the "camera work" (not sure how the anime equivalent to it is called) would've been less impressive in some scenes if it hadn't been CGI.
The soundtrack was really good as well. The only thing that bother me a little bit was the "MC has a unique ability" shounen tropes. His super sense of smell might make sense or fulfill a purpose later on but in the first episode it just seemed random and unnecessary.
