Set in Japan during the Taisho period, Tanjiro Kamado is a kind and intelligent boy who lives with his family and earns money by selling charcoal. Everything changed when his family was attacked and slaughtered by a demon ( oni ). Tanjiro and his sister Nezuko were the only survivors of the incident, even though Nezuko is now a demon — but surprisingly she still shows signs of human-like emotion and thought. Tanjiro then becomes a demon slayer to turn Nezuko back into a human, and to prevent the tragedy that happened to him and his sister from being repeated to others
In 2013, Koyoharu Gotōge debuted at the 70th Jump Treasure Newcomer Manga Awards with his work entitled Ka Gari Gari (過 狩 り 狩 り) .   Gotōge's later works are three one-shot series ; Monju Shirō Kyōdai (文殊 史 郎 兄弟) published in the 2nd issue of Jump Next! in 2014, Rokkotsu-san (肋骨 さ ん) in the 39th issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump in 2014, and Haeniwa no Zigzag (蠅 庭 の ジ グ ザ グ) in the 21st issue ofWeekly Shōnen Jump in 2015.  After Haeniwa no Zigzag failed to become a series, Tatsuhiko Katayama, who was Gotōge's first editor, advised him to create a new series with "easy to understand themes".  Gotōge's work, Ka Gari Gari, later became the basis for the first storyboard , Kisatsu no Nagare (鬼 殺 の 流 karena ) , as the story has concepts such as the sword and devil that Japanese audiences are familiar with.  The storyboard was not serialized due to its serious nuance, lack of comic relief elementsand the story feels dark. Katayama asked Gotōge if he could create a normal, bright character in the world he had created.  In the original plan, the title was Kisatsu no Yaiba (鬼 殺 の 刃) , but they felt the characters "satsu" (殺, trans. Har. "Kill") had too strong a meaning. The word "kimetsu" (鬼 滅) is seen as an easy word to understand, and although it has no meaning, Gotōge thought it would be interesting to be able to abbreviate the title of the new series in such a way, while the word "yaiba" (刃, trans. har. "sword") implies a typical Japanese sword.
