The sword-replica will be created byProplica, a company known for producing replicas of weapons and props from widely watched anime series likeSailor MoonorYu-Gi-Oh. With a pitch-black sheen to the blade and a wheel-like hilt, the sword is an exact copy of Tanjiro’s demon-slaying weapon.
▼ In terms of total length, the sword spans 880 millimeters (2.89 feet).
Another added feature to the replica is that it can play lines from the anime, voiced by Tanjiro’s voice actorNatsuki Hanae. While Proplica doesn’t explicitly state if there’s a button to press to hear them spoken, the company boasts that the sword-replica can playover 70 lines, and the lines will also differ depending on the mode one chooses.
The sword will come with the following two modes:Demon Slaying Mode and Encouraging Tanjiro Mode. Depending on your mood, you could go for some of Demon Slaying Mode’s more gutsy, fierce lines, or you could opt for the protagonist’s motivational lines from Encouraging Tanjiro Mode. Both modes will also play the series’ opening song,“Gurenge” by LiSA, as well as lines referring to the series’ titular“Water Breathing” technique— a concentration method for beginning demon slayers to use for taking down demons.
