Demon Slayer’s Tanjiro Kamado has always been the hardworking type, and now it seems like he’s finally found a bit of peace.
Viz Media is releasing a new companion guide to the Demon Slayer manga that contains art, new information on characters, and a bonus chapter that shows life and the characters after the events of the mainline story. It’s called Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba—Corps Records, and Polygon has a preview of the manga ahead of the book’s release on Sept. 26.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is a shonen series created by Koyoharu Gotouge, which, thanks to its 2019 anime adaptation, turned into a global hit. While the anime is still ongoing — it wrapped up the Swordsmith Village Arc in June — the manga concluded in 2020. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba—Corps Records will allow readers to dive back into the world and characters behind the original series.
Set in the Taisho era of Japan, Demon Slayer follows a young swordsman named Tanjiro Kamado as he seeks to rid his little sister of a demon curse. Throughout his journeys, he joins the Demon Slayer Corps and makes new friends, like the feral Inosuke Hashibira and angsty Zenitsu Agatsuma. The preview panels below show life for the characters after the events of the mainline series.
