Bandai Unveils Life-Sized Blade from 'Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba'
Flame Hashira Kyojuro Rengoku’s katana.
Bandai has teamed up with PROPLICA for a life-sized replica of a blade depicted in the Japanese anime Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. The katana belongs to the character Kyojuro Rengoku, the Flame Hashira of the Demon Slayer Corps.
Sporting a yellow end cap and crossguard, white cloth binding at the handles and a long handle with red temper lines, this PROPLICA replicates the sword in the anime with close detail. The piece is engraved with Japanese kanji near the crossgaurd as a finishing touch. The blade also comes with buttons that activate voices and the anime’s theme song “Red Lotus.”
