To Hell (地獄へ Jigoku he?) is the fifth volume of Kimetsu no Yaiba.



At Mt. Natagumo, Tanjiro, Zenitsu and Inosuke battle a terrible family of spider demons. Taking on such powerful enemies demands all the skill and luck Tanjiro has as he and his companions fight to rescue Nezuko from the spiders’ web. The battle is drawing in other Demon Slayers but not all of them will leave Mt. Natagumo alive...or in one piece![6]

Author's Comment

I did it! I'm Gotouge. I got a positive review from Akimoto Sensei (author of Kochikame). My father also liked Akimoto Sensei, so I think he's pleased in his grave. I'm deeply moved. Thank you very much. For the most part, even if you work hard in life, it doesn't pay off. When it does pay off, I think a miracle is occurring. The current miracle is thanks to all of you. Thank you everyone, thank you.
