Some annoying character traits

– Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba (Japanese: 鬼滅の刃 Hepburn: Kimetsu no Yaiba, lit. Demon-slaying Blade) is a Japanese manga series by Koyoharu Gotōge.
This was a surprise series of 2019 for me. The animation and art are superb if not a bit stylized. The anime is a mixture of 3D CGI and hand-drawn animation. The combat is crisp and satisfying to watch, even if the character does call out their attack like old fashion anime.
The series started with your typical shounen adventure trope. A tragedy that befell on our main protagonist that leads them into an adventure. However, the execution is done well that convey a real sense of loss and made us care for our heroes.
Our main lead is a strong character with not a lot of annoying traits. Unfortunately, some of the side characters instead exhibit these traits like being loud or constantly whining.
Demon Slayer has a nice balance in action and expositions. It isn’t just mindless action for action sake like some shounen anime. Every fight seems to have a lot of thought put into them.
I highly recommend this to the fans of dark fantasy anime. Demon Slayer contains graphic violence and suggestive themes/dialogs. Intended for the young teen.
Review in progress as it as the show is still airing.
