    Ah, now I'm starting to see why people love this one. Our main hero has gained a lot of experience already. We already get a small time skip and our new hero is a lot stronger. On top of that his sister is awake and they begin their adventure to try to bring her back to being a human. The first tale here is kind of sad as we learn these demons are kidnapping young women before they get to old and get "ugly" as they say. The next is the main villain has found out what our Demon Slayer wants and g Ah, now I'm starting to see why people love this one. Our main hero has gained a lot of experience already. We already get a small time skip and our new hero is a lot stronger. On top of that his sister is awake and they begin their adventure to try to bring her back to being a human. The first tale here is kind of sad as we learn these demons are kidnapping young women before they get to old and get "ugly" as they say. The next is the main villain has found out what our Demon Slayer wants and goes for the attack. A fast paced volume with plenty of great fight scenes. The humor also hits the marks as there's a couple of really funny moments, funny faces, and getting more time with the sister kicking ass was a big bonus. Sometimes the series jumps around a bit too much but besides that it is very enjoyable. I'm digging this series so far. A 4 out of 5.

    Warnings: gore, body horror, violence, beheading, bloodletting The first volume of this manga had left us on a cliffhanger moment - Tanjiro just about to attack a poewrful demon as part of his final test to get into the Demon Hunting Corps. As expected, he makes it, but a lot of the kids don't. Still reeling from this test, he gets back to his master to find Nezuho awakened, and soon after he gets his first mission and then his second.

As expected, he makes it, but a lot of the kids don't. Still reeling from this test, he gets back to his master to find Nezuho awakened, and soon after he gets his first mission and then his second. Now armed with information about the demon who killed his family and turned his sister, he is seeking vengeance and a way to turn her back. As usual, this manga packs a lot of action and development in a single volume, so if I keep discussing every thing this review is going to be hella long. To keep it short, The fight scenes are amazing, as always, and the sword positions are rendered in a majestic style. What I loved even more in this volume is Asakusa during the Taisho era, drawn in detail, and how Tanjiro reacts to the 'big city'. He also meets his nemesis and two surprising allies, which actually changes a lot about what we know about demons from volume 1! The doctor Tamayo gave me Carlisle Cullen feels, truly - and Yushiro is a stock tsundere character, but I'm interested to see how this new alliance turns out. (Would his fellow demon hunters approve? Knowing Tanjiro, I doubt he will care much, but still...)During all the action, there are still spots of levity. Tanjiro's innocent personality, even when being handed a special sword, his anger when Yushiro calls Nezuho brutish, because how could anyone not see how beautiful his sister is?! Also, Nezuho's high kicks give me life because girl saves him from those tight spots! I honestly love this sibling duo, and everyone's reactions to finding a demon and a demon hunter together. In short, another packed and entertaining installment.

    I don't think I will bother reading any more volumes of this series, while it isn't terrible, I really don't have time to read manga that is merely only okay.

    Kibitsuji Muzan is a smooth criminal.. lmao. he has such a Micheal Jackson vibe. I fucks with him hard, even if he's the villain.

    Cool, now that the training is done, on to the plot! Kind of convenient, but I'm okay with that.Oh, I thought about it, Kimetsu no Yaiba probably means Blade of the Demon Slayer.

    Las series de la Jump suelen tener unos comienzos algo apresurados y raros en comparación con los tomos siguientes debido a la duro que resulta sobrevivir a la mayoría de títulos.Así es como muchos autores en el 2º tomo introducen a antagonistas poderosos para captar la atención de los lectores.

Un caso de ello es Haikyuu, donde el autor presenta a Seijou y Oikawa en el 2º volumen, los principales rivales del Karasuno en la primera parte del manga, pero no de toda la serie. Hinata y su equipo vencen a Seijou en un partido amistoso de entrenamiento, algo que se hace raro teniendo en cuenta que es uno de los mejores equipos de la prefectura. Pero, hey, el autor no tendría ni idea de si le cancelarían el manga de nuevo o no y una supone que quería asegurarse un buen lugar donde acabar la historia de manera apresurada.El caso de Kimetsu no Yaiba es distinto, porque la autora introduce a EL MALO. El antagonista principal según parece. Y lo hace explicando buena parte de la mitología de los demonios y los cazademonios, y de cómo funciona este universo en términos generales. O sea, que tenemos entre manos un 2º tomo bastante estándar en lo que se refiere a series Jump, destinado a enganchar a los lectores y preparar el terreno en caso de cancelación.Por suerte Kimetsu no Yaiba sobrevivió a la criba, y la razón de ello la veremos en el siguiente tomo cuando aparezca Zenitsu, y luego en el 4º cuando veamos que Togashi-sensei (de HxH) lo recomendó. Por lo demás a la historia de momento le falta algo para terminar de enganchar. Es todo demasiado típico, pero al menos en este tomo la trama se empieza a mover más. He de decir que el anime logra sacarle más brillo a los capítulos recogidos aquí, a pesar de que alargasen demasiado la lucha entre los demonios del balón y la flecha.

    What a great second volume! I got more demons, more interactions between Tanjiro and Nezuko, learned more about demons, and saw some great fight scenes. What more could I possibly ask for? Also, the artwork is as stunning as ever. It is so plain but has such a striking quality to it, almost has an antique feel to it (like it was drawn centuries ago). I also want to congratulate this manga for being blisteringly fast-paced. As someone who is starting to lose patience in manga that stretch every l What a great second volume!

I also want to congratulate this manga for being blisteringly fast-paced. As someone who is starting to lose patience in manga that stretch every little event thin *cough food wars cough* I greatly appreciate Demon Slayer for choosing not to focus on every little thing. Considering the trial Tanjiro had to overcome to become a demon slayer was over in like three chapters when most mangaka would make it its own volume, I am pleased with how it went. I really do love this series and really want the next volume to come out soon!Side note: The title states a kindle version, but I read a physical copy. Sorry about that.

    This is a refreshing to read and it's really been a while since I read manga.... The hero is interesting. He's not that type of seinen hero that wants to fight strong opponents to prove something nor the type to look for a fight or grander dreams. Tho it has that same seinen formula of a weakling turning strong, revenge, family have been murdered. I could say the hero still stay humble and likable throughout the story. Despite getting stronger he didn't became the self conceited type and lastly This is a refreshing to read and it's really been a while since I read manga.... The hero is interesting. He's not that type of seinen hero that wants to fight strong opponents to prove something nor the type to look for a fight or grander dreams. Tho it has that same seinen formula of a weakling turning strong, revenge, family have been murdered. I could say the hero still stay humble and likable throughout the story. Despite getting stronger he didn't became the self conceited type and lastly he didn't want to grow strong because he wanted something for himself or herculean reason but to save his sister from being a demon and all others who had been demon against their will. Overall it's really good comic book, I wonder how the story would go from it's current course and I hope it won't be 500+ chapters manga because boi that would take long to finish and I am already excited to see how the pillars and slayers will achieve victory.

    This volume showed even more promise than the first, which I really fell in love with. If anyone is on the fence after reading Vol 1, I very much recommend giving this one a try. Portends for great things to come!We get our protagonist's first major accomplishments, hints about his lineage, and some major plot reveals--discoveries regarding the demon that killed Tanjiro's family, and the evolution of his demonic sister, Nezuko.

Kimetsu no Yaiba is suitable for anyone who can handle demon gore, and offers a mature and graceful approach to the historical shonen fantasy genre.

    Me esta gustando mucho este manga xk estoy viendo la evolución de Tanjiro y la de Nezuko, que yo creo que poco a poco va a er u personaje crucial para la trama, también me ha gustado poner cara a la persona que esta convierto a las personas en demonios y han dejado un final un poco complicado que espero que en el siguiente salgan bien parados

    Finally found the real villain of the story. I am really liking how Tanjiro fights with his sword. I don't know what it means that his sword is black, and not red. I think Tanjiro's family member was a demon slayer because the main villain remembers a flashback who has the same earring as Tanjiro. The series is getting more and more interesting.

    This is promising, I love the natural vibe of the characters, which is adorable!19/8/18Upon re-reading, it is still intriguing. The main character, Tanjirou is portrayed as 'goody-shoes' person, but I can understand and eventually accept him for being too good.
