Adapted from Koyoharu Gotouge’s acclaimed manga series, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Swordsmith Village Arc brings forth a riveting narrative set in the Taishō era of Japan, where humanity grapples with the menacing threat of demons.

The synopsis of the Demon Slayer anime depicts Tanjiro’s journey to the Swordsmith Village, where he reunites with two Hashira, the highest-ranking swordsmen in the Demon Slayer Corps—Mist Hashira Muichiro Tokito and Love Hashira Mitsuri Kanroji. As the shadows of demons loom closer, a fresh battle commences for Tanjiro and his companions.

At the core of this arc of Demon Slayer lies an exploration of Tanjiro’s growth as a warrior. As Tanjiro ventures into the Swordsmith Village, he encounters a myriad of challenges and revelations that test his mettle and deepen his understanding of his role as a protector of humanity.

The Importance Of Physical Media

Having stories like Demon Slayer available in physical media like this limited release is important for collectors as well as any person who enjoys the content they watch. While it seems like everything is available online, streamers have the ability to take away content at any given notice, including digital content you purchased. Having a physical copy like this box set ensures that you’re able to watch your favorite content forever. 

Pre-Order It Now

Purchasing physical media like this Demon Slayer box set also typically offers higher quality audio and video compared to streaming, especially for those with slower internet connections. It also ensures you have access to your favorite shows and movies even after licensing changes happen or content goes out of distribution. While online streaming offers convenience and accessibility, physical media like DVDs and Blu-rays provide ownership, quality, archival value, access to rare content, cultural significance, and privacy that are worth preserving in the digital age.

The Demon Slayer box set will officially be released on June 25.
