Ever since the death of his father, Tanjirou has taken it upon himself to support his family. Although their lives may be hardened by tragedy, they’ve found happiness. But that ephemeral warmth is shattered one day when Tanjirou finds his family slaughtered and the lone survivor, his sister Nezuko, turned into a demon. To his surprise, however, Nezuko still shows signs of human emotion and thought…

Thus begins Tanjirou’s quest to fight demons and turn his sister human again.

    This is very cool no doubt about it! But technically, wasn’t ‘Eat-Man’ her first collaboration(with EBBY) in 1997? While they may not have co-wrote anything, both contributed largely to it…where am I wrong?

    Yes there have been many soundtracks where her tracks co-existed with other composers ones but they didnt work together on something on any of them, the animation studio just gave this and that track to each and they never met each other. It is something that she says herself in last year’s Pripri interview along with the composer of the OP and ED songs of that anime

    This time its a different case, they will work together on the BGM, so im really excited about it 🙂
