Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba aired in the Spring 2019 broadcast season.

Haruo Sotozaki (Tales of Symphonia the Animation, Tales of Zestiria the X) directed Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba at ufotable, with Akira Matsushima (Maria Watches Over Us, Tales of Zestiria the X) providing character designs.

Aniplex of America holds the rights to the title and describes it as:

It is the Taisho Period in Japan. Tanjiro, a kindhearted boy who sells charcoal for a living, finds his family slaughtered by a demon. To make matters worse, his younger sister Nezuko, the sole survivor, has been transformed into a demon herself.

Though devastated by this grim reality, Tanjiro resolves to become a “demon slayer” so that he can turn his sister back into a human, and kill the demon that massacred his family.

Chikara Sakurai (Magimoji Rurumo) was tapped to direct One-Punch Man 2 at J.C. Staff, replacing Madhouse’s Shingo Natsume. Chikashi Kubota (Robotics;Notes, FLCL 2) returned to provide character designs, while Tomohiro Suzuki (Tiger & Bunny, ACCA: 13-Territory Inspection Dept.) reprised their role on series composition. Makoto Miyazaki returned to score the soundtrack.

Viz Media holds the rights to the show, which they describe as:

Saitama only became a hero for fun, but after three years of “special” training, he finds that he can beat even the mightiest opponents with a single punch. Though he faces new enemies every day, it turns out being devastatingly powerful is actually kind of a bore. Can a hero be too strong?
