Kimetsu no Yaiba it is written in kanji, a type of Japanese writing, which makes it more difficult to understand its meaning. To understand it, we are going to divide it into three parts.
First we have the “no”. This indicates a possessive form that means that the part after the “no” belongs to the inner part. Something similar to “Hikaru no Go”, which means “Hiraku’s Go”
Second, we can find “Yaiba”, which is “Blade”, so it can be said that these two words, when put together, would be “The Blade of”. From here it is that everything begins to make sense.
Finally, we find the word “Kimetsu”, which is made up of two kanji. The first is 鬼, which means demon, and the second is 滅, which means destruction.
By putting all the words together we managed to obtain the following sentence: “Blade of Demon Destruction”, which translated into Spanish would be “The blade of the destruction of the demon”, a meaning quite interesting indeed.
