In a season where nothing much was especially jumping out at me, I took some shots in the dark. Mostly due to a striking visual style and bizarre visuals, Sarazanmai caught my attention. After getting to know the extreme formulaic setup to episodes and repeated animation, I came close to dropping off. After getting to the half way point, I’m glad I didn’t.
Guess I’m going to be reviewing these after all. After saying his farewells to his old sensai, we kick right off in episode six with Tanjirou arriving in the town to the north with the goal of dealing with the demon that’s been abducting young girls. As per usual, we’re wasting no time with getting right into the meat of things.
This spring season has been a slow burn for me. With nothing immediately jumping out and dragging me in with cold, clammy hands. I had to search out which shows I wanted to invest my time into through… recommendations. Seriously though, without Youtube not throwing especially cute shows at me through their algorithm I ended up finding Demon Slayer through a different kind of grapevine: Human interaction!
