They find little happiness all the time. One day, because the rumors circulating about a man-eating demon hanging around the pond after dark, he was forced to spend the night with a good Samaritan in the village. Then he starts to smell, and the fire smells very strong.
We actually decided to include this shonen title on the list because it has lots of similarities to the madness theme in Vinland’s Saga and the style is somewhat similar to it. It has a lot of supernatural elements, so it can expect less brutality, but Demon Slayer still deserves your attention.

Ke-ri will protect a lot of cities, meet companions and, more importantly, face the greatest enemy he has ever known: his own clan headed by Pei-Ping, who under his leadership, would go against Mos men’s original logic.

The story comes from a land devastated by a nuclear war in the 1990s and was the biggest, presumably, by the end of the 1990s – and remained a fairly good one. In the series introduction, you can see 199X, which is known for a ambiguous year near the end of the 20th century. In this post-apokalyptic world, survivors are either frightful bandits, organized into gangs that plunder and terrorize people, or poor villagers struggling to survive.
This title is quite different than most of the others on this list, but we both have one or two lacked the classic title, and that helps the list to a certain degree. Fist of the North Star is a contemporary and historical tale, and does a modern and dystopian story, and can be seen in a different way.

The events that occur in the third era of the Chinese economy while Cao Cao, the original character and the final Chancellor of the Eastern Han Dynasty (1515 March 220), is alive serve as the basis for the story of Soten Koro. Cao Caos continues to pursue a project to free China and its people from their outdated ideologies and thoughts, and to promote the emphasis on pragmatism rather than hollow idealism in the whole plot. This often contradictions him with accepted Confucian beliefs and others who maintain them.
This is a Chinese character, and if you are into such matters, this will certainly be a title you’ll enjoy, as it will help you get more than enough to enjoy.
