Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is everywhere. After dominating the anime scene with its television series, it then continued its manga dominance and took over the global box office with Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- the Movie: Mugen Train.

And now, series creator Koyoharu Gotoge has made TIME Magazine’s TIME100 Next list, honoring 100 individuals predicted to be a major worldwide influence in the next year and beyond.

Makes sense, with the Demon Slayer movie still headed to North American theaters this year and a second season of the anime series on the way.

Gotoge’s feature on the list states:

“While [Gotoge] maintains anonymity in public, Kohei Ohnishi—an editor at Weekly Shonen Jump, the manga magazine that publishes Demon Slayersays the writer’s personality shines through the series, in particular in Tanjiro’s serious nature, honesty and strong sense of responsibility.”

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba follows the aforementioned Tanjiro on his quest to cure his sister Nezuko from remaining a bloodthirsty demon, joining the Demon Slayer Corps and making some powerful allies along the way.

The anime series premiered in April 2019 and quickly gained the favor of fans around the world. A second season has been announced, and though the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba manga has ended, Gotoge already has some ideas for what they’d like to do next.
