In Japan, plenty of anime franchises have taken to the stage to give fans a live-action performance documenting their colorful characters and explosive action, and it seems as if Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is following suit, with a brand new poster arriving online. The Shonen series' manga has been one of the most popular in the world today, even with the story of Tanjiro, Nezuko, and the other members of the Demon Slayer Corps recently coming to a close, so it's definitely no surprise to see its popularity is allowing the story to come to the stage.
The second stage play for the series, titled Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the 2nd: Bonds, will feature more of the story and an expanded cast that now includes the Hashira as well. To celebrate the upcoming debut of this new play in Japan this August, the official Twitter account for the play has released a cool looking poster that shows off how the cast looks in each of their respective costumes.
