Things weren’t going as bad and they lived with content until one day when Tanjiri returns home he finds his family murdered by a demon and also his sister Nezuko turned into a Demon. Somehow the change did not go through completely and Nezuko still shows some human qualities.
The demons were actually human at one time but their greed got them to sell their humanity and in return, they got supernatural abilities like strength, magic, etc. They are a major threat to the world as they feed on humans. To save the world from them there is a Demon Slayer organization that recruits and trains people who can slay these demons.
Now one of the problematic qualities of a demon is that it can regenerate. So simple attacks do not work on them. They need to be killed by a special weapon forged from Sun Steel and laced with the poison of the wisteria flowers or when shown to direct sunlight.
To face them off the Demon slayers have special breathing abilities that raise them resistance and give them special abilities. These are known as breathing styles. After the bad fate his family meets Tanjiro and Nezuka are the only ones alive in their family. He meets Guyi Tomioka who is a fellow demon slayer who sends Tanjiro to be trained by his seniors to be able to join the demon slayer corps. Thus begins his quest to slay the demons and save his sister who is a somewhat half-human half-demon.
After he joins the Demon Slayer Corps, he is joined by companions who later on the way become his friends. Zenitsu Agatsuma is one of them. Shown as a little shy and somewhat of a coward, Zenitsu is very skilled and adept. Then there is Inosuke Hashibira who is a hot-headed person and is told to have been raised by a family of boars.
