Can English dub of Demon Slayer be as Good as Original one?
Absolutely! If not as good as the original, it will at least reach the expectations of the fans. After all, Demon Slayer’s production never compromises at such small things. The English dub is directed by Steve Staley, who is famous for his dub works on Gundam Build Drivers and The Promised Neverland. Well, we can expect nothing less from him.
And the new trailer of Demon Slayer nonetheless gives us chills even without the original voice actors. You can watch it here:
One thing that can be best in the dubbed version as well is that the news they’re not going to change the main soundtracks “Gurenge” and “Kamado Tanjiro no Uta.” Oh, God! That’s a relief. As per the trailer, it is as good as the original trailer, and especially the anime dub lovers might not have any words right now.
Animeukiyo describes the story of Demon Slayer as :
“The story follows Kamado Tanjiro, a young boy who lives a happy life in the village by selling charcoal. However, one day his family gets attacked by a demon and devoured. But the only one who survives is his younger sister Nezuko, who gets turned into a demon. She might’ve become a demon, but Nezuko’s human feelings remain deep inside her heart, and she can hold the urge to devour humans. But anyway, Tanjiro decides to turn her back to human whatever it takes.
However, he trains hard to become strong and joins the Demon Slayer corps to turn her sister back to human form. He gains the power to fight against demons and prepares for the day that he will defeat his ultimate enemy.” The episodes of Demon Slayer are currently streaming on Funimation, Hulu, and Crunchyroll.
There isn’t much time left until the Aniplex releases its English dub episodes. Brace yourselves to experience the epic Demon Slayer in a new and exciting way. Stay tuned for more updates!
