In Taisho-era Japan, kindhearted Tanjiro Kamado makes a living selling charcoal. But his peaceful life is shattered when a demon slaughters his entire family. His little sister Nezuko is the only survivor, but she has been transformed into a demon herself! Tanjiro sets out on a dangerous journey to find a way to return his sister to normal and destroy the demon who ruined his life.

Tanjiro finally chases down the main body of the upper-rank demon Hantengu. However, dawn is approaching, and the rising sun is a threat to Nezuko. Tanjiro's concern for his sister is a distraction from the focus he needs to fight Hantengu, and if he hesitates it could be the last mistake he makes! Elsewhere, Tamayo ponders the nature of Nezuko's curse and how she could be so different from other demons.

I'm Gotouge—welcome to volume 15! Thank you to everyone who has supported me. The anime is really coming together. I got to see a sneakpeek! The visuals are so stunning, and the music is so beautiful that it made me tremble. Back when I was new to being a manga author, I never even dreamed that Ufotable, creators of the anime that I was absorbed in at the time, would end up making my show too. But no matter how great the anime is, if the original manga doesn't stay interesting, a lot of people are going to be upset! So I'll keep working hard!
