Many die-hard fans were also quick to take to creating their own derivative stories from the original plot in the form of doujinshi and fanfictions.

Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer) Ship

A ship is a love story that fans create and imagine between two or more characters of an original story and is one of the main and popular topics of the fanfiction stories.
