Unique Artwork and Amazing Story
This story is amazing I love the art its different from the other art styles I see.But this art style is like a old traditional Japanese art also looking for next volume of this book.

This first volume is great as it is able to draw the reader in very quickly with its unique art style and interesting characters. It is not the most compelling in my opinion as it seems to be an average shounen plot, however this is the first volume so I will not mark it down for this.

While on the outside this just seems like a basic shonen style revenge plot (which it kind of is but that doesn't drag this series down at all), deeper down it is a lot kinder in its approach. Tanjiro doesn't let himself become consumed by hate and anger when he finds out his family has been slaughtered and his sister turned into a demon. He instead focuses on finding help for his sister to turn her back into a human. Tanjiro is an ultimately selfless person who will go out of his way to aid anyone in need, even it it harms himself. The world and lore surrounding it is also a fun to read and hear about. This volume hooked me and got me excited about the rest of the series. I would highly recommend this series to anybody.
It also came in good condition with no blemishes on the volume at all.
