Demon Slayer is one of the biggest franchises in anime, and you can see its impact just about everywhere in the industry. With season two airing now, all eyes are on the series to see if it lives up to the hype. And now, a new bit of merchandise is ready to go live for anyone out there wanting to channel their inner Inosuke.
The news comes from Grape as the publication announced a new proplica for Demon Slayer. Bandai is finally going to release replicas of Inosuke’s twin swords. This release comes after the company unveiled swords for Rengoku, Tanjiro, and even Zenitsu.
As you can see above, these prop swords are done on 1:1 scale, but that is not all. The blades will play music from Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba and even play dialogue from Inosuke.
“Inosuke Hashibira’s Nichiren Swords have been brought to life as PROPLICA’s first-ever dual-wielding swords! By crossing the handles together, you can activate the duel-wielding feature… Inosuke Nichiren Sword’s unique jagged edges have been faithfully replicated, as well as their vivid bluish hue,” Bandai wrote while describing the twin blades.
Of course, these prop blades will not be cheap. The bundle will cost fans $145 USD, and Bandai is expecting to sell plenty. Given how huge Demon Slayer is, fans from around the globe will want Inosuke’s swords. So if you have been planning to cosplay the Demon Slayer hero, well – these blades might have to make it into your budget!
