An acceptable ending to a crazy-popular series. 23 volumes is pretty short for a popular Shonen Jump series, but I'm glad that the editorial department allowed Gotouge to end the series at a logical place. The big bad is beaten and it doesn't feel too easy, but it also doesn't go on forever. I still find the art a little lackluster and busy, but I will admit that may be a personal preference.

The one thing that annoyed me was that *SPOILER* Nezuko actually ends up with Zenitsu. I don't really care about shipping for Demon Slayer, but there is no way that any woman would say yes to Zenitsu when he calls Nezuko his wife the first time they meet after Nezuko is human again. No. Just no.

Grab your tissues! This was a great conclusion to the series, we got to see our heroes give it all they've got in the final battle against Muzan. I liked that the author did a time skip and gave our favorite characters an ending they deserved. The ending made me feel bittersweet that it was over but I enjoyed it from start to finish!

This is a sad goodbye to  Kimestu no Yaiba, one of the most beloved manga in history.  Fans of the awe-inspiring manga will laugh, cry, and rejoice with this final volume just as they have for every other installation.

Koyoharu Gotouge wrapped up Demon Slayer beautifully in this final volume. Although I wish that there were more adventures, and more character development, in between the previous arc and this final one, Gotouge brought everything together in a thematically satisfying way. I'm very thankful for the final chapter, which showcased the characters' joy, albeit through reincarnated descendants, after so much suffering.

I do caution readers, as there is subtext that could be read as Japanese nationalism through visual imagery and thematic threads, but overall this was was an enjoyable series. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to read a tightly plotted Shonen Jump series with a satisfying end.
