Demon Slayer released an impressive poster for their live-action theater and anime fans finally saw Hashira reunited alongside the group of Tanjiro Kamado and Muzan Kibutsuji.
But the franchise had expanded into all sorts of other invisible projects in Japan, like an adaptation of a play that brought all the characters into the real world. Now the franchise is preparing to return once again with a new play and La Verdad Noticias shares more details with you below.
The second play in the series, titled Kimetsu no Yaiba the 2nd: Bonds, will feature more of the story and an expanded cast that now also includes Hashira, the 9 most powerful Pillars or swordsmen in the Demon Slayer Corps.
To celebrate the upcoming debut of this new play in Japan in August, the play’s official Twitter account released an attractive-looking poster showing what the cast looks like in each of their respective costumes.
From Nezuko and Tanjiro Kamado, Zenitsu Agatsuma, Inosuke Hashibira, and the 9 Hashira, to Muzan Kibutsuji on top with the Lower Moon 5 “Rui” that we saw in the first season of the Kimetsu no Yaiba anime. What do you think of the actors characterized as characters in the shonen series?
