An explosive battle unfolds as Kyojuro takes on a demon of the Twelve Kizuki who holds a grudge against Kyojuro’s father.
An amazing manga, if u love Demon Slayer you’ll love this like me, but the background to Rengoku was amazing to read. Happy reading!
“We can only be Hashira…because we have someone to be strong for.” This was different then I expected! To be honest, I don’t really know what I expecting though. I really wanted to read this because RENGOKU! LOL! I can’t say I had any other reason except that I wanted to see some of his backstory and I think it delivered. I say that hesitantly because the backstory of Giyu and Rengoku were different then I think what I thought they would be. However, I think this writer did a very good job of capturing the personalities of the Hashira! Their reactions and their choices felt very spot on to me! I also thought the other Hashira were captured very well too, even though I didn’t know we would be getting a little bit of some of the other Hashira, which I think was a fun surprise! There was some “banter” captured between two characters that made me smile because I forgot how much I had enjoyed it in the anime. It was nice to see that again! I think overall Giyu’s story was a lot sadder then Rengoku’s when it came to the people they were interacting with. While Rengoku’s was sad, I felt the first parts really pulled on my heart strings. I think what was most surprising is how much guns were used in this story. That I can recall, there hasn’t been anything with guns in the original series. (At least in the anime. I haven’t read through the full manga yet.) I found that not quite as…exciting? I don’t think that’s the right word, but it wasn’t my favorite. Though I will say that the way the guns were used in Rengoku’s story was more violent then I anticipated, but was cleverly-written as a whole. The art was amazing! I took some screenshots on my iPad of a few scenes that were very very good! I especially loved a lot of the panels with Rengoku because you could really feel his passion shining through. Overall, this was a good read! I’m wondering if I would enjoy it more the second time then the first mainly because I know what to expect next. I would definitely be interested in seeing other Hashira stories should their be more volumes or spin-offs! I think if you love Demon Slayer, I would recommend checking it out!
