Demon Slayer is a popular shonen manga series written by Koyoharu Gotoge. It was first released in February 2016 in Weekly Shonen Jump and still ongoing. 16 compiled volumes have been released so far in Japan. The manga is released officially in English by VIZ Media.
The anime adaptation of the series premiered in April 6, 2019 with animation done by Ufotable, notable for their productions of the animated adaptations of the Fate franchise.
A summary of the manga series is found below:
“ 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.”
The Pokemon anime first aired in April 1997 and is still ongoing until this day. The long-running anime series is centered on Satoshi (Ash Ketchum) whose dream is become a Pokemon Master. He left his home Pallet Town in order to pursue this dream, meeting new friends, faced rivals, and even conquered adventures along the way. Ash is joined with his partner Pokemon, Pikachu, and two other trainers (who were originally gym leaders in the game) Misty, and Brock.
The anime series has 1,088 episodes so far as of this writing, and just recently, Ash finally became a Pokemon league champion during the Pokemon Sun and Moon run of the anime. For long-time running fans of the anime, this has been quite a journey as the Ash has taken more than a decade to achieve the Pokemon Master dream.
The current anime, titled Pocket Monsters, it focuses on Ash and Pikachu traveling to different regions, including the new one, Galar. They are both accompanied by a kid Gou.
The English dubbed version of the anime, in which the current season is titled as Pokemon Ultra Legends is still a couple of episodes away from the highly anticipated league finals in which Ash has declared the winner.
