Posted in: Anime News

Good news to those who prefer their anime in English dub: Adult Swim’s Toonami programming block has just announced on their official Facebook page that they will be premiering –anime of the year—Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba on October 12. No specific timeslot has been announced yet.

It will be remembered that Aniplex of America announced last July that the anime series will premiere on the Toonami block in English dub.

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is a shonen manga series written by Koyoharu Gotoge. It was first published in February 2016 in Weekly Shonen Jump up to present, with Shueisha publishing the series’ 16 tankobon volumes. The manga’s English license is currently held by Viz Media.

The manga’s story is described by Anime News Network as such:

“ Since ancient times, rumors have abounded of man-eating demons lurking in the woods. Because of this, the local townsfolk never venture outside at night. Legend has it that a demon slayer also roams the night, hunting down these bloodthirsty demons. For young Tanjiro, these rumors will soon to become his harsh reality. Ever since the death of his father, Tanjiro has taken it upon himself to support his family. Although their lives may be hardened by tragedy, they’ve found happiness. But that ephemeral warmth is shattered one day when Tanjiro finds his family slaughtered and the lone survivor, his sister Nezuko, turned into a demon. To his surprise, however, Nezuko still shows signs of human emotion and thought. Thus begins Tanjiro’s request to fight demons and turn his sister human again.”

In 2018, studio Ufotable announced that they will be adapting the manga into a TV anime. The anime started airing on April 6, 2019. Ufotable is best known for Fate/Zero and Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works, as well as the Fate/stay night: Heaven’s Feel movies.
