When an anime is popular in Japan, the creators often turn it into a stage show, and it’s usually for a very limited time! In January, Demon Slayer will be made into a stage show with talented actors playing the roles of each of the characters. These stage shows are usually have a similar vibe to musicals, with music being played throughout and the characters artistically creating various scenes from the anime as well as dancing.
These shows are usually super fun so I have no doubt that this Demon Slayer stage show will be very fun and will be worth going! Tickets cost 9,800yen which is quite pricey so this event is not for those traveling on a budget. Tickets can be bought outside of Japan HERE.
