Kamado Tanjirou is the eldest son in a family without a father. When he goes to the city one day to sell charcoal, he spends the night there, rather than heading home in the evening, amid rumors of an Oni supposedly floating around the area. When he comes home the next day, he finds that apparently, an Oni was actually on the way, who cruelly murdered almost his entire family and only his sister Nezuko barely survived. Will he be able to take revenge and save his sister?
