Demon Slayer, the action fantasy drama based on the manga series by Koyoharu Gotouge, has been a popular anime on Netflix since it made its debut on the platform in January 2021.
The series, which began airing in 2019, tells the story of Tanjiro Kamado, a teenage boy who begins his journey as a demon slayer after his family is slaughtered. The only loved one he has left is his sister, Nezuko, who wasn’t left unscathed from the massacre. Due to her wounds coming in contact with demon blood, Nezuko has become a demon herself.
Her body’s transformation has granted her abilities she didn’t previously have such as super healing, body transfiguration which allows her to change her size at will, increased strength, and demon arts that involve her claws. She also has a nearly uncontrollable thirst for blood and can’t step out into sunlight for fear of being rendered to dust.
