Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba returns to the streets of Asakusa after a century of absence in a newly announced collaboration. The anime juggernaut announced on its official Twitter account today that it will be partnering with Tokyo’s historic Asakusa neighborhood, with a picture drawn by the ufotable team being released to commemorate the occasion.
Details on the aftermath of the collaboration are very rare right now, but it’s cool that Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is returning to the area after the first season of the TV anime series featured on Crunchyroll!
