Demon Slayer’s second season brought to a close the retelling of the Mugen Train Arc, whose story helped to net the anime adaptation of Koyoharu Gotouge’s Shonen series the number one anime movie of all time spot. With the Entertainment District Arc now seeing Tanjiro and his friends attempting to stop an upper-tier demon with the strange ability to trap people inside of her waist belt, and use said belt as a devastating offensive weapon, one of the strangest new elements of this new storyline has received a new collectible that focuses on Uzui’s strange assistants.
Tengen Uzui, the Sound Hashira who has employed the help of Tanjiro, Inosuke, and Zenitsu to not only deal with the demonic threat but help save the lives of his three wives. Uzui, earlier in the arc, introduced the young members of the Demon Slayer Corps to his Ninju, a group of buff mice that will normally follow his instructions and help him out with important tasks. Also referred to as “Shino Buff Mice,” the tiny rodents might not be the ones to deliver the final blow to the wild threats that are facing Tengen and his allies in the Entertainment District, though their appearance has certainly caught the eye of many fans following along with Demon Slayer’s second season.
Meccha Japan currently has a Smartphone Stand with the buff mice ready and waiting to hold up a cellphone, hoping to leverage their popularity that spawned from the Entertainment District Arc of Demon Slayer that sees Tanjiro and his friends fighting the upper-tier demon known as Daki:

Ufotable has yet to confirm the form that the future of Demon Slayer will take, whether it be through a third season or via a new movie, though it’s entirely possible that we see both as we did via the Mugen Train Arc. Koyoharu Gotouge’s manga has already wrapped the story of Tanjiro and the Demon Slayer Corps, leaving many fans to wonder how many more television seasons the series will receive before taking a bow, though considering the popularity of the franchise, perhaps new material will be created to stretch the story of the young monster hunters.
