Every year Japan creates a list of new words that have entered the Japanese language. In the 2020 list the word “kimetsu no yaiba” made an appearance. Such was the rise in popularity of anime “Demon Slayer”.

I’ve written a bunch about Demon Slayer Opening Theme 鬼滅の刃主題歌 Gurenge 紅蓮華 with lyrics in english translation.

And I’ve gone in to the nuts and bolts around what the Japanese name of Demon Slayer Kimetsu No Yaiba means here. 

Amongst other things, the program is notable for the striking kimono patterns worn by many of the characters. It didn’t take long for the show to take off internationally and for Cosplayers to Tanjiro-style sniff a costuming opportunity.

With that in mind, here is a gallery of some of our favourite Demon Slayer cosplay options.

The Demon Slayer juggernaut looks set to roam the world of the undead for some time. The Kimetsu-tai is going to need recruits for some time. It may be time to don your colorful haori to go in search of some tortured souls to destroy!
