Two events for a birthday

Demon Slayer fans have something to rave about. The anime recently celebrated its third anniversary. An opportunity for the franchise to celebrate it alongside seiyu and fans. In this regard, two events will be offered live on a global level. The first livestream will focus on the Infinity Train arc and will take place on April 16 at 6 a.m. (GMT). The second livestream will be about the Pleasure District arc and will be transmitted on April 17 at 6 a.m. (GMT). At each of these events, an original story will be told by the seiyu.

Being aware that the event will not only be attended by the Japanese, the production has provided subtitles in English and Chinese. In addition, to access each live, fans will have to pay a ticket worth nearly 28 euros. French fans have the opportunity to follow these two shows online. All information to access the ticket office is available on the official website of the event.

The seiyu who will take part in both shows are those of the main characters. These are precisely Natsuki Hanae (Tanjiro), Akari Kito (Nezuko), Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (Inosuke) and Hiro Shimono (Zenitsu). Satoshi Hino, who lent his voice to the late Kyojuro Rengoku, Pillar of Flame, will be present for the live dedicated to the Infinity Train arc. As for the live on the district of pleasures, it will have for guest Katsuyuki Konishi, the seiyu of Tengen Uzui, the pillar of sound.

Demon Slayer: a resounding success

Koyoharu Gotouge by publishing his work in 2016 surely did not expect such success. 6 years later, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba, is one of the most important manga of this decade. It is in all 150 million copies that the shonen has passed since its publication. On the side of the anime, success is also at the rendezvous.

In 2020, Demon Slayer – Kimetsu No Yaiba – The Movie: The Infinity Train, earned several million euros, and became the highest-grossing animated film in Japanese animation. Besides this performance, the second season of the anime is already considered one of the best of this year. Indeed, the ufotable studio has outdone itself and given us high quality animations and action choreographies that are both complex and airy. These different aspects managed to convince the production to launch for a third season.
