One day, after he comes home from his work, his whole life changes when he witnesses what has happened in his house. He sees that his family was murdered by a demon and his sister was converted into one herself.
They could see hope when they see that the sister was still showing signs of human emotion. Thus begins the quest of finding the cure to his sister’s condition and taking revenge for what he had lost. But how is a young man expected to do so? Demons are humans who sold their souls to gain power or something material for themselves. There is an organization called Demon Slayer Corps who has been around for ages. They must hunt demons.
