Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba has become one of the most popular action series of the year thus far, and has steadily been taking over Japan over the last few months. The series is quickly becoming even more recognizable around the world, and it's sure to get even bigger when the series finally makes its debut as part of Adult Swim's Toonami programming block. Demon Slayer will be premiering on Toonami this Saturday, October 12th, and this also means fans will finally see the English dub of the series as well.
With the premiere of the English dub imminent, Aniplex revealed the English dub cast behind the series, and each of the members took to Twitter to celebrate the announcement in their own way. Zach Aguilar, the voice behind Tanjiro, shared his excitement for the series' debut following the announcement:
Incredibly honored by this - I’m voicing Tanjiro for the English dub of Demon Slayer! Being a huge fan of the show, I’m so excited to have been able to work on this with the team at @aniplexUSA and @BangZoom. Thank you to everyone for your support! pic.twitter.com/DnuXyhJ0rE— Zach Aguilar (@airzach) October 9, 2019
