The Demon Slaying Corps ( () (さつ) (たい) Kisatsutai?) is an organization dedicated to protecting humanity from Demons. There are hundreds of members in the organization, but they are not openly acknowledged by the government.[1] The organization has existed since ancient times and have continued to hunt Demons till today.[2]


In order to become a Demon Slayer, an individual must initially prepare and train in order to pass the Final Selection, a test used as an entrance exam to join the Demon Slaying Corps. During this selection, individuals must survive for 7 nights on a mountainside infested with demons without any aide from the outside world.

The students who pass the Final Selection automatically become Mizunoto ranked slayers and complete a variety of missions to reach the rank of Kinoe. Ranks are as follows:


All demon slayers are given a Nichirin Blade, which is specialized to eliminate demons efficiently, highly durable and light weight uniforms, that cannot be damaged by minor Demons, and are assigned a Kasugai crow for communications.
