Ratings & Reviews
Reliable shipping and great quality, but would only recommend for strong fans

Review on the anime: absolutely wonderful, I personally find it at the level of one piece, MHA, etc in terms of story and interest without all the filler ( and good voice acting unlike a certain popular anime lol). Also understand that there are some dark things that happen in this anime.
Review of the product: This box set came in excellent condition with extra packaging.
Contains everything that the pictures show. Discs play well, though I will say they are somewhat difficult to remove from their trays. Also the dvds say there are 2 options for English subtitles, but only one actually has English subtitles? Kinda weird.
Kinda expensive for only 13 episodes but I wanna support the company for doing so well on the anime.
One of the best animes I've seen and highly recommend

Kimetsu No Yaiba vol. one is a standout anime with exquisite visuals of the landscapes, battle scenes, and detailed animation of the gear/weaponry. Incredible scenes; especially, of Tanjiro's sword water attacks, and Zenitsu's lighting draw strike are a sight to behold. While the opening/closing songs by "LISA" reminds me of pop/rock style music, its the mix of Taiko drums and Japanese flutes combined with an orchestra ensemble that really sets the mood. The story so far in volume one is riveting! From Tanjiro's first encounter with swordsman Giyu, Urokodaki training Tanjiro his skills, to the battle in Tsuzumi Mansion is absolutely stunning scenes as it's clear the studio relied more on hand drawn art then CGI in this anime...and it shows!
The chipboard box is artwork itself on both sides, the art cards are really nicely done, and the softcover book is full of character profiles. Lastly, the three CD disks are a nice bonus to this volume one set. Enjoy!
Great for collectors

For Fanatics Only

The anime itself is nothing short of amazing in its style of storytelling. Every time I watch an episode it feels shorter than it actually is.
The visuals are fantastic but for one thing that I tend to notice. When they use the CGI it is noticeable. Thankfully those parts comprise a small part of the larger whole, but those small parts throw me out of the anime a small bit which is why a star has been deducted.
The soundtrack disks are each over an hour long which surprised me as I didn't realize how many different tracks there were for this show. They are pleasant to listen to.
The box is pretty to look at and the little art cards are fun too. The booklet adds little details about how they made the episodes and about the characters themselves.
So unless you're a hardcore fan, want the box, soundtrack and the little goodies that come with this edition and are willing to put down top dollar, wait for the standard edition that Funimation is releasing. Which is a welcome surprise.
Great Anime Series Good packaging
by CHRISTOPHER -
Demon Slayer is amazing. It has amazing Visuals the dubbing is pretty good and the story picks up nicely through the 13 episodes that are here making you want to Watch the rest of the season. I have to say, however, this is one of the better aniplex releases, it's not the only way to get it since there will be standard editions later in the year for people who want a cheaper option unlike most of their titles where it's only available in an expensive package or importing. It however still follows some flaws aniplex titles have such as selling you a blu ray set for over 100 dollars without a DVD option as well and that when you add an art book to a set at this price why can't it be hard covered especially since a lot of aniplex titles that they publish all have amazing art styles. All and all if you are a fan of anime or want to see something with a great art style get this series I, however, can't say though if you should get the limited edition or wait of the standard version though.

First off, I enjoy this series a lot: the visuals, soundtrack, and voice dialogue is excellent. It comes at no surprised that I would want the bluray release of this. Based on my history with Aniplex, their boxsets are always the best quality and this set is one of their best with a ton of soundtracks, at least 40+ per disc and the artwork on the box is beautiful. While it might be on the pricey side, a standard edition is announced in collaboration with funimation too so don't miss out! Would highly recommend this for the most hardcore of collectors!
