Tanjiro’s goal

At the start of Demon Slayer, we meet Tanjiro, who is living a nice, peaceful life. That is until a Demon comes along and kills his entire family, leaving only his younger sister, Nezuko, alive. Unfortunately, although Nezuko survives the attack, she is turned into a demon herself. Tanjiro takes it upon himself to find a way to turn her back into a human, joining the Demon Slayer Corps to achieve that goal.

Demon Slayer Corps

The Demon Slayer Corps is an organisation which exists to, as you might have guessed from the name, slay Demons and protect people from their wicked ways! Tanjiro becomes a member after some very serious and dangerous training.


The Hashira are the Demon Slayer Corps’ greatest fighters. These nine members lead the way in humanity’s battle with the Demons. Mugen Train showcases one of these elite members, the Flame Hashira, Rengoku, so expect to see some incredible action from him!

Breathing Techniques

Breathing Techniques are amazing abilities which allow for the members of the Demon Slayer Corps to go toe to toe with powerful demons. These incredible powers take hard work and practice, but those who master them are rewarded with advanced physical and mental abilities.
