After all, the series is still one of the biggest in the entire industry and the anime is currently working on a third season. Of course, many fans are still catching up on season two, and the cast behind it. demon slayer just gave netizens a special insight into the series through a live appearance.
For those who don’t know, the main actors of demon slayer gathered in person for Anime Japan not too long ago, and that’s where attendees got to see the stars. This is one of the group’s first live events since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. So, as a treat, all five actors did live commentary for the Entertainment District arc.
Anime News Network did an in-depth write-up of the panel, and some special information was revealed during the event. This is where Natsuki Hanae (Tanjiro) and Akari Kito (Nezuko) admitted that they were very intimidated watching Daki’s voice actor at work. Miyuki Sawashiro was brought in to voice the demon, and their performance was very hard to watch. And as Katsuyuki Konishi (Tengen) added, the actor behind Gyutaro was equally striking. Ryota Osaka gave it his all at the High Moon, and his performance worked beautifully with the one given by Sawashiro.
