The " Demon Sl ayer" movie "Infinity Train" has finally surpassed 40 billion yen at the Japanese domestic box office, and the DVD and Blu-ray release of " Demon Slayer " is only about half a month away on June 16, 2021 (Wednesday ).
The DVD & Blu-ray release is expected to further accelerate the excitement of those who missed it in theaters due to the Corona disaster and those who want to relive the excitement of the film at home.
The announcement of the new characters for the " Demon Slayer: Hinokami Blood Tale," which will be released on PS4, PS5, Steam, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S by the end of 2021, has been very exciting.
Last time, the announcement of " Tanjiro Kamado (Hinokami Kagura)," who is a different character from the water-breathing Sumijiro, made a big splash.
I was wondering what kind of character would be next, when a new character was announced in the " Oni-kiri-tai-ho " in the May 31, 2021 (Monday) issue of Weekly Shonen Jump (issue #26)!
A new character has joined the Onigakurei team!
The senior member of the "Water Breath" team, "Murata" has joined!
Murata, Sumijiro's senior member of the Onigakitai, has been announced as an entry in the Versus Mode! Murata's trademark is his shiny hair.
He made his first appearance in the Nada Spider Mountain Arc with a nice mob character feel, and I thought he might be a character that would be taken advantage of... but unlike Dice Steak Senpai, he managed to return to life.
He is a character in an exquisite position who makes good appearances after that.
However, when you read the story through to the end, you will find that everyone has fallen in love with Murata, which is a very nice character.
He is in the same class as "Giyu Tomioka," a water pillar who has already been announced to participate in the competition. He is a user of water breathing, but his ability seems to be at a level where the water is too thin to be seen.
In conjunction with the announcement, " Character Introduction Video 12: Murata " was also released, which shows "Murata" fighting in a way that was not seen in the original story.
The water breathing with no effects is really nice!
Murata" seems to have a unique skill called " Cheering," but I wonder what kind of effect it has. Let's wait for more information!
Will another unexpected character join the game?
With the announcement of Murata's entry, we can no longer predict who the next character will be.
On the contrary, in the preview page of the next issue of Weekly Shonen Jump No. 26, in the "Oni-kiri-tai-ho" section, there is a small note that reads, " An 'unexpected force' is reported to be entering the home video game! !"!
It looks like it will be another character that goes beyond our expectations! Is it Dice Steak Senpai?
We'll have to wait for Weekly Shonen Jump issue 27, which goes on sale Monday, June 7, 2021, to find out!
