Assaulted by Memories ( (かい) () (きょお) (しゅう) Kaiko Kyōshū?) is the eighteenth volume of Kimetsu no Yaiba.



Tanjiro and Tomioka confront Akaza, the Upper-Rank 3 demon. Against Akaza's overwhelming strength, the two find themselves unable to do anything but defend themselves. With the situation looking grim, Tanjiro awakens to the "Transparent World" his father once told him about. Will this new knowledge allow Tanjiro to turn the tables and go on the offensive against Akaza?[2][3][4]

Author's Comment

Hi, I'm Gotouge. Volume 18 is out. Thank you very much to everyone who supports the series. Thanks to the wonderful anime they made, it seems more people have been picking up the graphic novels, for which I'm incredibly grateful. I had no idea this would happen, so I'm trembling for many reasons. I took my comforter to the cleaner's at a poor time, so I'm cold every day. But until the day I get it back, I'll wear multiple layers and work hard.
