>/a/ hates Kimetsu no Yaiba>It's actually goodNever change /a/ never change
>/a/ says something is shit>its great>/v/ says something is shit>its great>/tv/ says something is shit>its greatare all of you actually crossboarders or am i losing my mind
It's ok but I wouldn't read it again
>>206673375>Good manga>gets canceledmust have not been THAT good
>>206673375wasn't that good. Decent shonen at first but the ending was awful.
>>206673375It is largelly butthurt wanpissfags.
/a/ hates everything but kitemsu is once of the least hated shounens so I'd say the overall taste here is at the very least decent.
>>206673609100% croc wanted it to end earlier but JUMP forced her to drag it outI've been to Japan twice in the last year and EVERYONE loves KnY. I had a Tanjiro (and Kanao) charm on my backpack and an elderly shopkeep said something about it. My imouto translated and basically the old lady said I had a cute Tanjiro on my backpack.However, the /a/ memes about the KnY fanbase being largely women is sorta true but in my experience it's mostly JC/JK/JD girls instead of OLs. Almost every Animate's KnY section will have a group of JKs browsing or a few JCs begging their dads to buy them stuff.
>>206673375Same, I avoided watching it for a year because /a/ told me it was generic garbage and even worse than BNHA. What I got instead was a generically GOOD story with stakes and drama
>>206673375Watching shows that /a/ hates is a rule of thumb that has never failed me in finding great series. So many contrarians here just mindlessly hate on things in order to fit in.
>>206673375How is it good?
New movie info coming out tomorrow
>>206673375i'd be more surprised to see a series with any semblance of popularity /a/ doesn't hatemy son is still cute btw
>>206674507What else could they have to tell/give us? A new pv?
When do we get popularity poll results?
>>206674941yeah, and a theme song apparently?https://twitter.com/animetv_jp/status/1289259543592079362
I hate herofags so fucking much>wahhh my shounen of the future failed to live up to expectations so I'm gonna shitpost every other shounen to convince casuals it's all as bad as mine I hope a nigger sucker punches each and every one of you to death. You're more cancerous than coomers and that's nigh impossible to achieve.
we had a very popular general thread while the anime and manga were running, the haters were just a loud minority
>>206673375>actually good>generic heroshit>b b b but the animation!!!11111What do you find good about it excatly?
>>206673375>/a/ hates Kimetsu no YaibaLol
>>206675157what do you dislike other than buzzwords?
>>206675157Enjoyable characters and simple but interesting plot about curing your sister slaying all demons until you get to the boss
I remember thinking the same thing reading the manga and then I followed the Gash Bell storytime on /a/ and realized just how much deep shit Shounen Jump has been in recently for people like me to have such low standards and not even be aware of it
>>206673375I am /a/ and I love tanjiro
>>206675566Notice how that doesn't say in the slightest what's good about it.
Another 14 hours until the trailer drops it fucking blows.
>>206675793>enjoyable characters aren't good >simple but enjoyable plot not good
>>206676149>liking=goodHow old are you?
>>206674158Honestly, it’s this. They were seething for no good reason
>>206675566What's enjoyable about the characters?What makes the plot interesting? Is it purely because of the simplicity?Don't be vague anon.
>>206673375I just dropped the manga bit in, it felt like a generic battle shounen pretending to be something else. Felt less magical than Nurarihyon no Mago as well.
>>206676272How did far you get?
>/a/ hates manga that it formed the majority of the fanbase of for over two years
>>206676299Can't even remember. I never discussed in on /a/ and didn't know it was big or anything, I just followed it for awhile and then dropped it when I realized I didn't care enough to read new chapters the moment I noticed they'd updated. It never left any impression on me.
>>206674158funny way to spell herocuck
What time is the show with movie info?
>>206676437Fair nuff, everyone generally agrees the Manga is at its best at the train arc and going forward
>>2066765199 pm japan time i believe
>>2066765199pm in japan.
>>206676519So in 11 hours the Trailers gonna drop with the info.
I'm actually gonna be dissapointed if they show anything of Akaza's other than maybe the VA
>>206676885trying not to get too hyped for train movie because it' just a lil baby arc
>>206673375Anybody impressed by this has got to be underage or a newfag, not to say that it's garbage but it's way overhyped for what it is if you've actually been watching anime for any serious length of time.
>>206677026they've been really good about it, I don't think they're going to
>>206677026Any VA guesses?
>>206677046I’m trying not to get too hyped because I have no idea when I’ll be able to see it thanks to Corona...
How new are you OP? /a/ will always shit on popular series, especially if its battle shounen cause it attracts the most people. KnY was liked in here until it got an anime adaptation and became popular in the west. Right now, CSM is well liked in /a/ but that will soon change when it gets an anime adaptation.
>>2066765199 pm JST>>206673375It was loved by /a/ or at least a decent numbers of us before the anime. /a/ is the reason KnY TL stayed alive back then when others gave up. Once last volume comes out /a/ TL of Jump will truly die. Then anime came out and it became popular. I would say as a fan that it becomes overhyped and overrated which is kinda part of why /a/ hate it. Also, it broke many records. So you have dedicated shitposters like "OPfags" or "Dekufag" which I don't think some really are x series fag just shitposters. To be fair it has less hate/bait threads than some Jump series and the bait threads now tend to die quickly or get less (you)s.
>>206677026They've been really good at keeping him hidden, I could see a voice reveal though, maybe some other minor hints
>>206677175Maybe there will be a famous VA advertised as voicing a character we know is minor and we'll know he's probably doing double duty for Akaza
>>206677161>but that will soon changeit already started but yeah anime will be the real trigger.
>>206676216Bro you like good things
>>206677388No, I like a lot of shit too.Just because you're not aware it doesn't mean you don't too. This is one of them.
Nezuko and Tanjiro are gonna have a live sex celebration.
>>206677388A lot of horny teenage girls loved Justin Bieber and simped for him at every chance. He was popular as fuck but did that make his music good?A shitton of people like MHA too, but is that a good anime?
>>206677812Sorry anon but she ended up with Zenitsu
>>206677879are you sure
>>206675793how is it even possible to be as retarded as you and know how to use a computer?
>>206677936you had your day in the sun, but you lost, let it go
>>206677879Dont be a fag we know Tanjiro and Nezuko fucked off panel.
wen day is dark always rember hapy days...
>>206678134If she fucked anyone off panel it'd be Sanemi
>>206673375>It's actually goodHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA
>>206677745This is probably what people mean by contrarian. You're failing to provide reasons to dislike it as well, and it's all subjective. Maybe someone likes the atmosphere and world building of KnY. Maybe the like Tanjiro's kindhearted nature as a protagonist and the fact that other characters get to shine where his personality would put him at a disadvantage. Maybe he finds the anime adaptation of KnY has high quality scenes with a lot of details put into them, ranging from choreography, special effects and adequate use of 3D into 2D. It literally doesn't matter anon. The reason people like things is highly subjective, just let them like their own shit. It's a shounen anyway, it's not like it has to be this complex storyline detailing a folly in mankind's nature. It does it's job well, of creating scenes with a fair balance of tension and suspense for the main characters, while offering insight into what turns humans into demons or demon slayers. Like goddam, it's just anime, just click exit, no one's forcing you to see people praise it or watch it, goddam.
>>206678263quite a based post if i say so myself
>>206678313posting best girl is always based
>>206673609>gets canceledNot with having #1 sales it wasn't.
>>206678263I haven't seen it. I'm asking. It's a fucking jump manga, what are the chances it's actually good?Let's say Tolstoy is a 10, if this was a 6 compared to that I'd watch it but retards here answer with "muh plot" so it makes me believe it's shit.And even if I wasn't interested in watching it I would still be pissed at anime fans for claiming garbage was good, they are actively making something that I love worse.
>>206674379>the /a/ memes about the KnY fanbase being largely womenKnowing the creator is female, this isn't too surprising.
>>206678408i love kanao and her girlfriend!
are the first 3 episodes trash? or is it me. I felt it was moving slow af.
>>206678417>I haven't seen it>apparently has a very strong opinion about itplease commit suicide at your earliest convenience
>>206678493No, they're blazing fast and churn through the plot progression a typical shonen does in the first 2-3 volumes/half-season. The first slow episode is probably 6.
>>206678560then It's my problem, will give it another try.
>>206678493They're pretty slow, feels like that in the Manga too, the movie is actually where things are kicked into high gear
>>206678503I have no opinion on it, I have an opinion on jump and on /a/ morons like you.
>>206678493>I felt it was moving slow af.it is. they drag it out so train arc could be a movie. manga readers complained about it too
>>206678630My only complaint about pacing is that they dragged out the midseason fight in asakusa for almost 2 complete episodes when 1 would have been better. Everything else was fine
As someone that just finished it for the first time yesterday, it’s okay. It’s not that good (the animation is nowhere near what i was lead to believe it was) and the rest of it is just slightly above average shonen. Lucky for it i like shonen so i’ll watch a second season when it comes out.
>>206675566zenitsu and inosuke are more annoying than anything. Some of the other characters are okay.
>>206675103Remindert that herofags are mentally ill and should not be taking seriously
>>206676069>Another 14 hours until the trailer drops it fucking blows.Are you for real?
>>206673375How popular was Tanjiro's show in the grand scheme of things?Would people left and right suddenly draw Nezuko, Shinobu, occasionally Inosuke if S2 was announced?
>>206679878Dekufag lost his god damn mind at the end there
>>206677026>I'm actually gonna be disappointed if they show anything of Akaza's other than maybe the VAOh, anon you'll be disappointed anyway because Akaza is not appearing in the movie. They are saving him for S2
>>206673423>4chan says something is shit>its greatFtfy
>>206677026They better not it's the perfect surprise>fight is over>tanjiro is very injured>train completely derailed>rengoku being set up as the mentor figure for tanjiro>fucking UM drops from the sky>rengoku goes fucking ham (before he was focusing on saving lives not just killing)>ends with him getting a fucking arm through his chest and slowly bleeding outmillions of kids are about to be devastated
where was the good part though? you have to understand i'm used to amazing shounen like hxh where arcs end in unconventional or thematically satisfying ways. gon the MC loses his physical fight but passes the exam anyway. the exam tournament has rules against killing which we expect to only be there to shield our MCs from death but instead togashi uses it to eliminate one of the MCs. we expect gon and friends to have to physically confront the zoldyck family to free killua but silva lets killua walk because silva isn't some generic evil baddie. gon's only goal against hisoka in heaven's arena was to punch him. he still lost. kurapika chooses friendship over revenge which parallels pakunoda choosing to save chrollo for the spider. gon vs genthru compares the mentally unhinged villain with the mentally unhinged shounen MC and that fight was a culmination of everything gon had learned about nen and the card game. the chimera ant arc ends because the "hero" uses a nuclear (type) weapon to blow himself up to beat the monstrous "villain" who we're sad to see die because he had changed.i didn't get any of this shit with kimetsu no yaiba. it's just a straightforward shounen in the anime. maybe in the manga it starts getting more experimental and more thematically deep with a dozen characters in a high stakes situation where every decision matters and guides all of them to some climax that explores humanity or something (holy FUCK the chimera ant arc is so fucking good) but if demon slayer never becomes that then i don't care about it.
>>206681309I think the biggest appeal is it finished
>>206681397you think so? that's so bizarre to me. i'm more interested in amazing but unfinished series over bad, completed series.
>>206681423It isn’t even bad, just solid and standard as hell
>>206681309>That whole hxh sectionHuntertards need to be banned
>>206681309>you have to understand i'm used to amazing shounen like hxh where arcs end in unconventional or thematically satisfying wayslike rengoku getting killed? You didn't read the manga did you anon
>>206681423From the perspective of anyone wanting to start a manga it can go >This manga is really good, but it rarely gets updated >this manga is okay and it just finished I’d probably hop on the finished one first before the other one, simply because I know I’m getting a finished story
>>206681423you're the exception to the rule
Is Tanjiro a classic manga protagonists in opposition to modern? Older manga did not have the angst or constant power struggle in todays heroes. Tanjiro has an open attitude and never fakes out. The manga also doesnt spend 10 chapters in between fights on training and the main trying whining about how he isnt good enough.
>>206673375No one who actually read Kimetsu no Yaiba weekly up until it ended really hated it, outside the last battle, with the main villain; and even that had its own entertainment value. Those who legit hated dropped it long ago and just created hate-threads to bitch and circlejerk with the shitposters. This happens for all popular series. On /a/, most manga/VN that get adapted to an anime brings in a stream of anime-only fans who proceed to shit up the threads of the original fanbase. For the most part, Kimetsu no Yaiba was spared that due to the series ending after the first season of the anime, even if the weekly threads had their dedicated shitposters.As for the actual quality of the series, it was a decent series that always charted well in Jump, which then got an godly boost in popularity due to the anime, which, in turn, made the back issues sell like gang-busters, which is why Japan is so in love with it on top of the usual horseshit with Jump sometimes purposely not printing enough back-issues, to promote other serial (looking at you Sam8), so collecting became a pain in the ass for nips/importers.Kimetsu no Yaiba is enjoying a boon in sales due Japanese normalfag love, the same thing One Piece has been riding on for decades and the series and its author deserves it. It's going to continue with the movie and second season of the anime, as long as Corona-chan doesn't fuck things up.
any info about the Rengoku gakuen soon?I want to see his relationship with shota snek and love, he/his family seems integral to them in a way
>>206681423>i'm more interested in amazing but unfinished series over bad, completed series.yes retard most people like good things over bad things
>>206681839The manga never tries to make him out to be anything deeper than what he is
>>206681839He's just a good character. The fact that someone like him who isn't special is being so well received is a testament to how shit a lot of recent shonen protagonists are. None of this bullshit about wanting to become the greatest pirate wizard king of the ninjas. He just wants to save his sister and kill muzan. His personality is the same old "he's nice and hardworking" but the mangaka actually gave a reasons as to why is is that way. He had to take on the fatherly role early in life and it affected the kind of person he became. Hence his nickname in the corps being "Mom". Also no filler bullshit. We have crap like BnHA where the author seems content to drag that shit out for hundreds of chapters with nothing happening.
The only reason its good because it actually has an ending and they weren't afraid of killing off its characters. Villain was nothing special, close to zero world building. Breaths are never explored in depth. I liked manga and series but its not a master piece.
>>206673375The Kimetsu anime was a fucking mistake.
/a/ likes kimetsu no yaiba so much that even after it ended we had peaceful threads with minimal shitposting which is uncommon for Shonen threads
>>206682539True but I cant wait to see Koku animated in all his glory
Obanai gaiden when?
>>206682491>it's not a master piece.I think only retards and people who want to start shitstrom of shitposting claim that it's a masterpiece.
>>206682491the lesson is that you don't need to be a masterpiece to be successful. /a/ has this weird idea that because something sells more than something else it's better. And they cope by being contrarian retards>>206682539manga threads were amazing all the way up until chapter 200 when the shitposters arrived
>>206681309The Hunter x Hunter fanbase is the most cancerous group of autists on /a/
>>206682709But you have to admit HxH is great.
>>206682709literal mental disorder
>>206682587True, it's just sad by the time that happens most reactions to it will just be "WOOOOOW UFO REALLY CARRYING SHITTY MANGA" or the same old shit
>>206682675I miss the old /comfy/ kimetsu threads from before the anime desu
>>206682753I like it, but I'm not fucking obsessed with it like some are
>>206682864Those were the good days
>>206682864>implying the threads werent amazing up until the end Stone strangeling baby muzan is still one of the funniest thread moments of all time
>>206673375>>It's actually goodI wouldn't say it is good,it shat the bed at the end real bad,it alright.
>>206683027It got cancelled no shit
People quoting some mentally-ill Italian MHAfag, Huntards or braindead salesfags as proof of real detractors are morons whose opinion doesn't matter no more than the average shitposter they complain about. If you're posting complaints from shitposters as representative of the majority's opinion, then congratulations, you're just as retarded as the shitposters for giving them attention and validation, which is a good sign that you're too stupid/young to be posting on 4chan in the first place. Shitposters are always going to spew their garbage from behind the veil of anonymity hoping for a reaction; these subhumans are one and the same with the underage contrarian fags who hate everything popular, along with the usual tards posing as hiatus x hiatus 'fans'. Replying to them, quoting them and even mentioning them gives these fucks the attention they seek, so encourages them to shitpost more (which is why I'm not bumping this post). Even those with valid reasons for not liking whatever serial can argue/discuss without spewing memes and buzzwords. Well, non-crossboarders can.Lastly, the fags who encourage fanbase wars (like /v/tard consolewar shitposting) are the real cancer on /a/, since they brought that shit from /v/ and make no qualms of informing you of their ignorance, since the concept of people being able to enjoy/dislike/discuss more than one series is alien to their pea-brains.
>>206683185I fucking hate this overly pointy style but amazing piece regardless.
Was he right to kill his own henchmen?
>>206683438The lower moons were constantly getting replaced so not much good they did anyway
>>206683438They were all jobbers except for Akaza. So yeah, he was in the right.
>>206683438lower moons were weak fucks, so yes.Maybe a bit quick on killing Nakime, kinda gay Yushiro became a plot device at the last second to break the fortress in a uninteresting way.
>>206683438No, in general he was an idiot that had no idea how to delegate or make use of anyone. He didn't even fucking get regular humans to help him so he could look for shit during the day. Goddamn trainfucker came up with that and he couldn't
>That first fight scene with ZenitsuI think I COOMED when I first saw that. Zenitsu was my favorite character, and I know I'm in the minority. A lot of people hated him. I bought Tanjiro's haori off Amazon, fits perfectly and it was only like $20. I could have gotten Zenitsu but Tanjirou's looks cooler IRL. Zenitsu's kind of looks like pizza/chips all over his.
>>206683544Those 5 brains were to ensure he stayed alive when cut up or exploded, they sure as hell weren’t used for thinking
>>206683534Not really his ability to hide his presence was established since Asakusa.
>>206683571Im not gonna lie, i got into this Manga/Anime because Zenitsu banged Nezuko. A pretty fun ride. Also Giyu best boy
>>206675020we already know the ED:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gzA2njmI4Pk
>>206683922Can’t wait for more violent gay chicken memes
>>206673375But it was greatDekufag uncontrollably seething in the threads and getting a dozen of his posts deleted was always entertaining
Barring Ufotable shitting the bed or not animating it, the 1s fight will go down in history
>>206683544If he were mature enough to have peers or subordinates that had any independence he'd be mature enough not to obsess over the sun weakness.I think he could have made peer demons like demon tanjiro the whole time and just never did because it would be one more thing that could kill him. But it would have been an absolute RIP for the human race as anything but cattle.
>>206684675>more violent gay chicken memessame but whats that?
>>206685065The memes or gay chicken?
>>206685104gay chicken (violent or otherwise)
>>206685743Gay Chicken is a game two bros play, where they both have to slowly get in close as if to kiss, and the first one to pull back is the gay chicken

>>206673375Legitimate garbage tier writing, don't think I've ever been more let down by an anime before.
>>206687173What’s your favorite anime
How long now until the new stuff?
>>206687173its forgettable thatsis greatest sin. character interactions and growth happen over the span of 2 chapters they learn techniques out of the ass and motivation is just as superficial or change so fucking easily that they might as well be puppets.if it was longer this defects would have being even more notorious.
>>206681839he has a clear goal, but the fucking story keeps fellating him to the point it makes any other none sun users pointless to the story.
>>206688140What are you talking about, the final upper moons run down barely has him in it and he doesn't even get the final kill on Muzan
The ending was underwhelming. Clearly they want to monopolize the gap between the years in the ending
the whole sotry realies on that sun breath technique, it doesnt pay off at the end and it's also part what it is disappointing since there wasnt any other buidl up for it. but everything on the story villains and dialogues revovle all around tnajiro becasue he ia sun user and is the one triggering all those change of hearts both on secondary cast and villians. Except for the first moon bu that another wasted plot point all on together.
It eneded too early. The build up isn't worth it either.
>>206688285I didn’t hate the time skip but I do wish we had more time to see what our main crew were doing years after the demon slayers were no longer neededAnd the future was so sad for Boars descendant, didn’t like that
>>206688475he's just the average man. he senses at his core that he should be running through the woods with no shirt as he sits in his office.
I'm glad my cute daughter gets more merch
>>206683438Not sure at all if this would be a good idea in retrospect since the fast pacing is probably what got so many people hooked on the series but I kind of wish we had at least one more lower moon battle.
>>206688766Cant wait for my favorite smug bastard to get official merch
>Leave Akaza to me
>>206689198are you sure? you don't want any help?

does the broadcast appear anywhere other than abema? it's not available in my area and i'm too dumb to set up a vpn in 2 hours
>>206673375It’s okay, it’s certainly not good. It’s an extremely generic shounen saved by good animation. The ending was the most uninspired whimper I’ve read in a long time.
1 hour till trailer drops.

>>206693728previous streams have been on bilibili, not sure about this one though
Hold tight to you Imuoto's bois where in for a ride
>>206673375/a/ hates this crap because MC is a cuck that refused to go full oreimo.
>>206695198He fucks the superior butterfly
>>206695091Do you think they fucked behind Zenitsu's back? Knowing him he's probably a quick shot, no way in he'll he can satisfy her.
kanao a cute
>>206695198He LITERALLY mating pressed his sister
>>206695198Nah there's a bug chance Nezuko and Tanjiro at least fucked a couple times
>>206673375I thought it was pretty good, I was reading it before the anime started, but I honestly have no idea how and why the fuck it exploded like it did.

>>206695198THIS! We all know the real reason about the hate agaisnt this series but we are afraid to metion it out of criticism.
No shonens have good stories, obviously when people say a shonen is good they're talking about the animation, fights and music. By those standards KnY is definitely far above average.
>>206695310everyone in that tiny house fucked at least once
>>206695533>No shounen have good storiesThat's not true but I get where you're coming from, especially when it comes to battle shounens like Yaiba.
Any chance that there will be a prequel anime after the original is over? I mean if the studio wants to milk the ip as long as possible this is the way.
>>206695623Yes I should have been more clear, I mostly meant battle shonens. The most I expect out of a story in a battle shonen is decent pacing and characters that do not make me want to kill myself.
>>206695648it depends on how popular the anime will be in 5 years or so, now as the manga is over
>>206695648There is a lot of stuff Wani could write about but she's the kind of mangaka not to do it. She ended the story and wrapped everything up. If she wanted to keep writing about KnY she could have easily extended the original storyline
>>206676390>tourists that never read the manga are shitpostingeveryone who actually spend time in the KnY generals is beyond hyped up for the movie
>>206695673Yes the battles play q big part but personally I have a weak spot for charismatic characters. For example Bleach was full of shit plotwise but most of the characters were cool af.Kimetsu is heavily carried by both the hunters and the demons. The UM were especially great.
>>206695759The UMs are fantastic and just as good if not better than the corps. And I loved Bleach but man I forgot how dogshit the combat was. Wani's biggest strength is how well she writes the flow of battle. RLD especially manages to drag it's fight on for 20 chapters but stay a nail biter the whole time
>>206686048Kimetsu threads these days always start the same, it's like clockwork.
So where can we actually watch the trailer?
>>206695759>The UM were especially great.>>206695819>The UMs are fantastic and just as good if not better than the corpsbased and UMpilled
LET'S FUCKING GO
Eh I don't think /a/ hates it as much as other manga. It got the typical shitposting any popular series gets. The only parts that I can remember being bad was the final fight with Muzan and that time Inosuke survived a wound because his body was flexible was a BIG stretch.
>>206695759Sure battle shonens has cool characters, but that's usually about it. It's never really any deeper than "wow cool power / weapon" and "wow sad backstory". There's nothing wrong with that of course, but I wouldn't say they contribute to making a good story, they're just here to hype you up when they eventually fight.
>>206695957>Inosuke survived a wound because his body was flexible was a BIG stretch.Wani could have written that so much better. Tanjiro actually says out load "Shit did that hit his heart?! I can't see!" but then it's drawn so that the reader can very clearly see yes his heart got fucked if he didn't move them
>>206695993I'm still of the mindset that he has situs inversus and just is a huge idiot thinking he saved himself. He never moves his organs again after that
they will rerun episode 1-2 after the broadcast.
>first thing Akaza does when he appears his dive right for Tanjiro's head to crush his skullrereading this arc fuck I can't wait for it to be animated
Hope Corona-chan will not fuck it up.
Is this new trailer or old one?
HOLY FUCK the animation against lower moon
song by lisa
>>206696391newENMU LOOKS SO GOOD
>>206696453the animation on his hand as he sends tanjiro into the dream is so goodalso fuck the train fight is going to be so sick it looks like they are going into a lot of detail into how it becomes a demon
Fuck I missed the trailer
link for trailer?
no akaza, thankfully
any rengoku scenes?
cgi flesh will definetly traumatize some japanese kids
>>206696491trailer was streamed live gotta wait for someone to upload the recording>>206696514I'm so glad, it looks amazing already without him. Imagine being in the theater not knowing it's coming. You have this awesome fight against a lower moon and then after everything is done a mother fucking upper moon drops in and goes all out against a pillar>>206696531yes actually a few, you can see the train become really demonic almost like they are in its body
>>206696531Yes, we got a scene of him on the train.
>>206696542also you know >>206681596
Someone already uploaded the trailerhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6k3CJAJknsw
wow lisa is really cute
it's on youtube
why are the voice actors so ugly
>>206696749shimono is cute, shut the fuck up.have you seen his shirt?
>>206696749The girl is cute, but the boys are ugly as fuck
>>206696829they are hyping up enmu as the big bad just to get everyone by surprise when akaza shows up
what killed the hype??
Shimono just said the lines for Zenitsu’s audition came from Infinity Train, not from the series.
>>206696893That's a LOT of likes.
>hono no kokyu: ichi no kata
>>206696890We're not asian
Will Akaza show up in the movie?
>>206697114yes but he's a surprise
FUCK I DONT UNDERSTAND MOON
>>20669711499% he will. What I need to know if they are going to use fireworks imagery/sound design for his moves.
they are gonna make another 5 movies, aren't they?
I miss this fucking series, Wani better come back quick. Fuck.
>>206697184I'm 99% sure
>>206697204Don't think so.
>>206673375the manga ending sucked
>>206673375>/a/ hates Kimetsu no Yaiba>It's actually mediocre shonenshitftfy
>>206697204Nah, probably this movie then season 2 then another movie to follow up and tie it up to Season 3 and maybe a big movie finale for the ending.
>>206697204I doubt it, all the next arcs are too long.>>206697219You cheeky you.
The anime is great. The manga is average at best. The ending was complete trash.
>>206697301It's going to be s2 for RLD and Smith village and s3 for the infinity fortress with MAYBE a movie for the final battle.
Like a worse Ippo with swords
>>206697324I only disliked the actual Muzan fight. The I AM CALAMITY, Yushiro raging and the 13th move reveal were great. Also Himejima strangling giant baby Muzan, that was kino.
>>206697155I hope to GOD they have him actually start saying it
>>206697324only Muzan himself could have been better, everyone fighting him was great and everything else including the "twist" was fantastic
>>206697184They need to leave some breadcrumbs for when Tanjirou is recalling the fight and trying to figure out the compass so probably.
>>206696624Do we have an english release date yet? specifically Australian because we often get it a little later as well
>>206697487Akaza does say he can see his fighting spirit. Also fuck I never realized they could totally use fireworks that is genius
>>206697438I really thought the reason why 4 of the 5 senses rangers were there til the end was to counter Muzan's explosive division since they could track the parts.
>>206697639Based GODjima poster, the Infinity Fortress arc can't come soon enough.
>>206697709Uzui is my favorite, but GODjime is GODjima for a reason
I love Enmu
>>206697596Not having a fight with all 5 was such a shame.
>>206697912they have their little moment being invisible, hopefully the anime expands on that a lot
who should play akaza?
>>206673375the only good thing about this show is its animation. everything else is serviceable. there's practically no depth to any of the characters. I know hxh is a meme at this point but at least you're able to discuss characters, plot or themes. there is absolutely nothing good about this show otherwise.
Holy shit its almost at 150k likes. Nips really do love this mango
>>206698140it's insanely popular, biggest thing since snk went crazy
>>206696624Really good song, even better than TV opening
>>206698111I know this is bait but you can’t really compare the amount of discussion between a series that lasted three/four years and a series that is 20+ and still ongoing. Obviously there is a lot to discuss about HXH, it’s not over yet.
>>206673375it's actually fucking boring
I'll need that Akaza twist in the movie or all manga readers will be pissed. Hopefully they just don't want to spoil anything in these PVs.
>>206698140>>206698178I’m so excited for the shitshow the movie is gonna cause. I’m imagining that even if you can buy tickets in advance there’s still gonna be crowds and lines for miles.
>>206698426Enter Covid.I wonder how and when we in Europe will get it.
>>206698111every shounen have themes and ideas, even kny
>>206698452>CovidI predict a ton of Kimetsu themed masks in the queues
>>206698452My country already has released date
>>206698426>Gee I wonder what sort of interesting discussion this manga will bring? Maybe about its story and characters and setting >salesfaggotryFigures
>>206698586>>Gee I wonder what sort of interesting discussion this manga will bring?We all know you didn't come to this thread to discuss anything, but nice try
>>206696893What a boring fucking trailer. If there's ever a series that fits the term "overrated" its this.
>>206698629>We all know you didn't come to this thread to discuss anythingBecause there's nothing to discuss
>>206698670Because unlike other series Kimetsua)endedb)has no loose ends
I was hoping for a peek at the dreams of the others, but they really are keeping most of the stuff that would sell out of the trailer.
>>206698670Then why claim you come seeking discussion? Are you mentally challenged? All the discussion was done months, the story ended and there is no more room to theorize outside of if Tanjiro died at 25 or not. If you are truly interested in that then go to the archive.
>>206698757>2021kek. Glad to live in SEA. Movie this November
>>206673375Glad this trash ended
Some people just hate popular things.
>>206698753Are there;s just nothing interesting about. Even series that ended years ago like FMA get discussion.>>206698780>the story ended so that means there should be no discussionThis is how you cope?
>>206698828Says the retard that hates MHA
>>206698550Whaaat? Where and when?For Europe I'd guess spring 2021...
>>206673375>biggest dump of cliches of the decade>goodYeah, sure.
>>206698853If FMA didn't have two animes for people to choose between (which is really about having two different age groups nostalgic about the anime they watched when they were 12) it would get the discussion Code Geass does at most.The way you get "discussion for years" is to have no ending or to have 80 IQ fanbase fractures to scream about
>>206673375It would have been good if Tanjiro was a girl.
>>206699035>biggestI don't think so, it has them of course, but at least they are less than BC and BNHA.
>>206699011SEA so movie in November
Tanjiro getting ready to fuck his other sister
>>206699159>no gigajime on the horizon
why don't nips upload the doujins?
>>206699211Why does the other little sister always look like a shoujo heroine to me? Like she's gonna be the "plain" girl that gets the quiet volleyball ace in the end.
>all that wind actionWhat will Sanemi be like?
>>206698111>there is absolutely nothing good about this show otherwise.True, thankfully there's also nothing bad, unlike other battle shonens with no depth like MHA
>>206673375People on /a/ eat up trash like re:zero, don't take their word too seriously.
>>206682539Retard. It wouldn't be bestselling manga of the year without it, best commercial ever.
>>206700073No need to feel attacked because I didn't like your favorite show anon, I'm just comparing two shonens together.
>>206700057Are you still mad that Samurai 8 was canceled?
>>206687173Frogshit is bannable offence, enjoy your ban
>>206700103how did he not improve after working on naruto for all those years?
>>206682539>>206682675>>206682864It's the same with literally any manga before they get an anime adaptation unfortunately, not just KnY. Threads always turn to shit once a manga has been adapted.
>>206699648mother fucker is stupily strong so probably like an explosive tornado
>>206700103I didn't like it and I never read nardo. I don't understand why you even bring squid8 here.
>>206700147his editor carried naruto. he used ideas that editor had rejected from naruto in s8.
>>206700298Kishifags thought anime could save Squid8.
>>206700305what is the editor working on now? does he have a name?
>>206699213don't worry I gotchu
>>206678058i refuse to rename this
>>206680607>Dekufag lost his god damn mind at the end there>implying he hadn't already lost it ages ago
>>206699159this guy is pretty based, even if most of his art is samey
>>206673375Kimetsu is the worst manga that I read until the end.
>>206700923So go fuck urself u cuck
will we ever
>>206700641That's the idea
>>206701087so why are you seethe?
>they're still here
>>206701172>>206701301>a ship where both parties are dead>a ship where the only hint of romanticism was a one sided comment right before the dude's death>to which she responds telling him to go fuck himself in hellDelusion
Will Akaza show up?
>>206701510in movie? 99% surein trailer? never
>>206676253Holy kek. Never listen to a wanpisser.
>>206701718I'll have a word with Ufotable if the movie ends with the arrival of my boy Akaza.
>>206673375Is there anyone that actually liked that ending? Because that shit was awful. An entire series can be ruined from the ending alone, and here we are.
>>206701468Doushino is CANON, you retard.
>>206702344How would you have ended it?
>>206702510not him but>no Muzanjirou>Tanjirou dying for real>no shit timeskip showing the life of new characters we don't care about>without Muzanjirou it would have less ''O MY MEDICINE'' moments
So are kids (people under 18) allowed to watch this in theaters? I always thought that KNY was rated M because of the gore and shit but I found out the manga was rated for teens. What are the limits for something to be for teens only? No sexual elements, drugs, and other normally bad stuff?
>>206699035Name all the cliches and tropes, I’m curious
>>206703521you're talking about Japan or the west?
>>206703592In general I guess. Not sure how different the rating systems in those two countries. I’m just wondering what type of stuff a teen rated series can pull off without being labeled as rated M.
>>206703735In japan, it's a super popular shonen with all ages, so everyone can watch it.
>>206704193So basically anyone regardless of age can go see the movie in theaters? Do they not have a strict age rule there?
>>206704533For something like kimetsu? Nope.
>No sign of Akaza>Two weeks to goThe public reaction will be quite interesting.
>>206705370I mean, Akaza is the suprise>yay! they beat enmu!>what do you mean we have 20 minutes left?Also Hanae sounds so great in this, legit crushed when he sees his siblings.
>>206703521Standards are different for manga and anime. It was a late night anime because it's pretty damn violent. but little kids ended up watching it as VODs anyway because it's 2020 and not 1995.I have no idea if it will be toned down at all in the movie, kind of a good question. There's no doubt that there are going to be tons of small kids watching it.
>>206705473I mean, it was only late night on public channels, they've done a ton of marathons by now during the day in pay ones.
>>206702116Everyone is going to walk out of that theatre thinking your boy is a bitch.
>>206689388the second doujin this author did was pretty good too
>>206673375Only above average arc was red light district. Everything else was just ok except for the second half of the last arc which was awful.
>>206705411>Woah an Upper Demon Moon?!>And Aniki is gonna fight him?>Oh man this fight is gonna be so cool and show us how strong Aniki is>wait...>no it can't be, he can't be dead>YAMEROAnd I bet /a/ will be a fucking shitstorm about it too
>>206705778>for the second half of the last arcI'd say only 10 chapters tops were actually bad there.Everything was well until koku ended then Muzan had some awful chapters and some actually neat ones, mostly the ones with Tanjirou and snake teaming up because it looked visually cool in color.
>>206705521free one too. Abema is free.
>>206705811even anime onlies of different series will already know about it on /a/ because they've already sniffed it out when looking for shitpost fuel
AO hereDoes the color of a demon slayer sword end up mattering?
I liked how Tanjiro pulls fire techniques out of his ass.Also Zenitsu is annoying and stupid.
>>206705952It's just your affinity, nothing else.Basically for character design, the only one that actually was relevant was Tanjirou's/Yoriichi's because it tied into his backstory.
>>206705952Yes, now get the fuck out of the thread
>>206703521Kimetsu is for kids
>>206701468It was shitty, short, juvenile story where undeveloped characters barely interacted with one another. C'mon anon, I'm just appreciating that one sided rapey crackpairing's superior visual and thematical appeal. It has nice, spicy aesthetics. >>206705952One color, in a wayWanna have OP red sword? Just grab your blade harder bro!
>>206698866mha is just plain garbage nothing to do with popularity
>>206701468>a ship with multiple doujinsfeels good
Friendly reminder that Kokushibou was a retard who threw away everything for what amounted to nothing.
>>206705984don't be mean to my son, please.
>>206673375they also hate black clovergood thing i watched it best shonen anime
>>206706819That's what's depressing about him.
>>206673375Most of /a/ are Oda worshippers so it isn't surprising they hate the first series to ever top One Piece in sales in years.
>>206706978/a/ didn't hate SnK or NnT when they did it.
>>206706819That's what made his whole character Kino
>>206707034Both aren't Jump, though.
>>206707034There were many other reasonable reasons to hate NnT though.
>>206707138Which didn't come until much later.
>>206706366>Wanna have OP red sword? Just grab your blade harder bro!I thought the secret to winning in KnY was just breathe through your teeth
>>206708221how would the other 8 have done?
i really miss this nigga
>>206708434I think the only other moons that could beat rengoku are koku and doma.
Sanemi is the second strongest pillar BTW, anyone who disagrees is gay
who is going to dub akaza?
It's a decent series but it's entry level and very normie tiered
>>206705370It's coming on 10/16, so more like 2 months and a half to go.
>>206708221>The movie ends right here>Please wait for season 2 to see how it goes down!Imagine
>>206710900that would be terribleon the other hand I wonder if they'd want to start a fun adenture shonen anime season with Tanjiro visiting Shinjuro the alcoholic father and starting a fight when he hits his weeping son
>>206710900Would be an awful short movie
Man I want to see the three wives from RLD animated, the pomf scene isn't gonna happen until like 2022 dammit
>>206711194big dick energy
>>206712140RLD will be glorious
>>206706366Gripping the sword hard isn't enough, you need the body heat caused by the mark too.
>>206696624song sounds generic af
I think there is a good chance that there will be a teaser for the 2nd season at the end of the movie.
>no US release til 2021 Fuuuuuck
>>206696043I mean, it's because he has an undeveloped version of Akaza's compass. That's how he actually survived it, by feeling it was coming and moving a millimeter or two away from taking a fatal blow. Him saying he moved his organs is the same as him saying he's immune to poison because he's a rugged mountain boy.
>>206673375I just remember they wasted like 6 episodes in flashbacks of a foot soldier evil demon that you know it was going to die and nobody cares how much he suffered in his life. And there are another 24. HA! Fuck this.
>>206708434The pillars? they all would've died because to beat Akaza you'd have to figure out his compass.
>>206708587>So ugly he fucking diedI still laugh to this day
>>206708688Bitch say that again
Is Zenitsu the only pillar to solo an Upper Moon?
>Nezuko Chan i'll protect youOh yeah best boy getting ready to clap that delicious ass
>>206712140I wonder if season 2 will happen next year. I can see a S2 announcement by the end of the movie
>>206713480>Watching Anime in non-Japanese theatersHoly cringe
>>206714336thats creepy>>206714446>Kaigaku>UMthe only reason he got that title was because they were out of other options and Koku casting couched him
>>206714507she has like the intelligence of a toddler. Thats weird
>>206708434No one would be able to just kill him at that point without the marks having become contagious.Himejima could probably defend himself until sunrise. Obanai would have just let him kill Tanjiro rather than fight to the death. Everyone else dies.
>>206714446Muichiro v. Gyokko
>>206714772>>206708434Even in the end i think only Himejima could stand a chance against Akaza. Akaza was absurdly strong
>>206708434No hashira(godjima include) can defeat solo the 3 upper moon.
>>206714674Zenitsu like to rape women
>>206715546>in his dream world along with Nezuko>he holds her hand and carries her across a shallow stream on his shouldershe is a gentle lad anon
>>206708434Only Stone and Sanemi could have beaten him by just brute forcing their way through his technique. He's insanely strong. Tanjiro only pulled it off because he got countered him. Honestly one of my favorite moments
>>206715639Nah for real Zenitsu is creepy as fuck dude. Fuckin fag is annoying as hell also. Dude most likely raped the bitch more than anything.
>>206714576The hype is going to be insane>>206713625yeah I feel like most people are too quick to jump on it for being an asspull. Concentration breathing users have been shown to straight up close their blood vessels or stop their heart. You heart being an organ and moving it slightly to the side is trivial
>>206714619More so that its going to be forever til I see a proper leak
>>206715919Yeah I'm not going to the threater with this fucking virus.
>>206715639There was also the time he was all aflutter over being touched by the Butterfly girls
>>206714336God I love his creepy eyes
>>206711267wait, thats the final product or some bootleg? LMAO
>>206714446>mfw i realized the kid who got himejimas kids killed by a demon was zenitsus bullykid was a piece of shit
Why did Muzan turn himself into a baby?
>>206716865In-universe it was him inflating his flesh as much as he could to keep the sun from burning his vital parts, it's only coincidence that he happens to look like a baby.
>>206716970>>206716865It could also be somewhat symbolic of Muzans fear of growing old and dying
>>206717205Yeah that's the symbolic level that goes without sayingBut there is a pragmatic reason for it.
>>206717401For sure, isn’t it even mentioned in the scene that he’s covering himself with flesh to avoid as much sun as possible
>>206714446my son is very strong but mui did that first, anon. respect the dead.
>>206679878MHA ended? Did the manga end? What am I missing?
>>206717682The only cuck here is you, anon
>>206717724We're waiting for this fuck to hopefully rack up a bodycount.
>>206717724No it was a shitposter who spammed the threads around the last chapter of Kimetsu
>>206717794He hasn’t killed anyone yet?
>>206717879Shiggy has killed plenty, but it's the same as Muzan when he awakened: mostly nameless fodder.
>>206708849Holy shit that would be based.
>>206673375Watched the first few episodes and it was some extremely cliched action-shounen drivel. The main character seems like a beta wuss, much like Deku from MHA. I don't understand how people enjoy these characters.
If you can only do one thing then do it perfectly
>>206717988How far did you actually get?
>>206717838It was dekufag right before that he got told off hard by everyone in the toc thread and had a mental breakdown
>>206716604BASED BASED BASED
>>206717988>Tanjiro: beats the crap out of every single bully he comes across.>Deku: gargles Bakugo's cock at any given chance.Weak bait.
>>206717988it doesn't change so don't worry about missing out on anything, particularly if you enjoy how conflict is resolved in series like hxh. kny offers nothing like that.
>>206718632Quit talking out your ass
>>206718665sorry meant to specify for the anime only. it's possible the writing gets good in the manga.
so this series is going to get a post ending pre time skip series or some kind of sol timeskip follow up yeah? plenty of loose ends to follow up on. final arc and ending were decent but the timeskip was a little too fanservicey with all the descendants/reincarnations. yushiros part got me though
>>206718764my money's on kimetsu gakuen desu
>>206718764I doubt we’ll get anything more from the time skip, at this point I really can only expect a prequel
>>206718764it'll 1000% get a reboot or something in 12 years when all the little post-zoomers that love it right now get nostalgicI guess we can see if the pillar spinoff miniseries try to set up anything to know if Wani has given someone the green flag to milk it right away beyond the anime.
>>206718764Do people not realize the time skip happens to avoid WW2 japan?
>>20672031399% of final chapter bitchers are anime onlies that are looking for hate fuel
>>206720313>great depression>tokyo earth quake >mass famine>communist terror attacks>fall of democracy>rise of militant fascism >world war 2>fire bombing that had over a million casualties >nuclear bombs>foreign occupation>cold war red scare>tanjiro dying of the mark in a few years and kanao having to raise their kids alone through all the above shit. Like there's a good chance Tanjiro's boys got drafted into the fucking war.Its easier to skip to modern day in a shonen manga for kids
