In this article, we will discuss the movie’s synopsis and review.

As a member of the demon slayer corps, Tanjiro embarks on his first mission to Asakusa, Tokyo. Before he sets out, Urokodaki Sakonji gives Tanjiro an explanation of the clothing and swords he should use during his mission. Urokodaki also gives him a special box to carry Nezuko during the day or while traveling.

During his mission, Tanjiro investigates the case of missing young girls in a village in northwest. While on his way, he meets Kazumi, who has lost his fiancee and is hopeless. With his sense of smell, Tanjiro follows the lingering scent of demons around Kazumi’s location. He waits until night when the demon preys on its next victim. Tanjiro finds out that the demon he encountered is Raw Demon, who has two other clones of himself. The demon can appear through a puddle of water that can emerge anywhere. Raw Demon appears again and abducts a girl. With his keen sense of smell, Tanjiro identifies the strongest source of the demon’s scent and begins to attack. Tanjiro successfully rescues the girl, fights the demon, and defends Kazumi and the girl while trying to continue attacking the demon. When Tanjiro is almost overwhelmed, Nezuko comes out of her box and helps him fight Raw Demon. The demon is surprised to see a human working with a demon.

While Nezuko protects Kazumi and the girl, Tanjiro fights two other demons inside the Raw Demon. With his Whirlpool technique, Tanjiro defeats two demon clones and then confronts another demon that almost kills Nezuko. When the demon is cornered, Tanjiro asks about Kibutsuji Muzan. However, the demon immediately becomes afraid. Suddenly, the demon tries to attack Tanjuro again, and he kills the demon.

The next day, Tanjiro continues his journey to Asakusa, Tokyo. Upon arrival, Tanjiro smells the same demonic scent that was present when his family was killed. Tanjiro tracks down the demon’s scent and meets a man with a child and a wife. However, Tanjiro is convinced that the man is Muzan, the demon he has been searching for. Muzan escapes, turning humans into demons, but Tanjiro cannot pursue him because he is struggling to hold back the new demon. Just before escaping, Muzan sees the Hanafuda earrings worn by Tanjiro, which reminds him of his past.

Later on, Muzan orders two demons, Susamaru and Yahaba, to kill Tanjiro. However, Tanjiro is saved by Tamayo, a doctor who is also a demon with a mission to defeat Muzan, and Yushiro, Tamayo’s attendant. Tamayo reveals the possibility of making a medicine that can turn demons into humans, but it takes a long time to make, and she also needs a blood sample from a demon very close to Muzan. While listening to Tamayo’s story, Tanjiro receives a new task, but the place where Tamayo is staying is attacked using several temari balls controlled by Susamaru and Yahaba. While trying to avoid the attack, Yushiro, who is protecting Tamayo, is hit by a temari ball that destroys his head.
