Welcome to the Solaris Blog! ヾ( ʚ̴̶̷ .̫ ʚ̴̶̷ )ﾉ”
Not long now and we’ll soon be able to immerse ourselves in the story of Demon Slayer! The game, which has been scheduled for October 13th, looks extremely promising. Go beyond the places the currently grounded airplanes can take us, and slay demons in Taisho era Japan!
And to add to the immersiveness, the developers have recently released a teaser showcasing Rui as a playable character! Demons have been confirmed by the developers as post-launch content, which I find pretty cool. Their techniques have interesting mechanics and it will be very exciting to be able to use them and see their full power unleashed! ᕙ(๏ 益 ๏)ᕗ
However, until you master the deadliest cat’s cradle ever seen, expect to see a lot of demon slayers coming for your head, blades and claws out.
These figures brimming with action are the opus of Bandai Spirits! The figure maker has been putting out great pieces one after the other over the past year.
From tiny Nezuko to mad beast Inosuke, and both the water and fire versions of Tanjiro’s breathing styles, the figures leap from Natagumo Mountain and onto this day and age with a tremendous BANG! They are so dynamic I can’t help but recall the excitement and the wonderful animation of the final battle with the spider demon Rui.（ ๑✧∀✧๑ ）
Inosuke’s figure was so great that, unfortunately, it sold out! If you have pre-ordered it, it should ship out at the end of September. It is true that a pretty face sells, and under that boar mask he is definitely pretty! §ԾᴗԾ§
Well...until he does that. (⌒_⌒;)
Giyuu Tomioka had been released earlier this year also, but thankfully a re-release is scheduled for November 2021. (Keeping my fingers crossed for a re-release of Inosuke!)
Out of all the Tanjiro figures released by Bandai Spirits so far, the newest one is my favorite for two reasons:
1. Tanjiro’s pose is the most intense.
He’s not guarded, he’s not afraid; he will behead that demon even if he gets beheaded himself! This is the moment when he realized the legacy of the Kamado family and the weight that rests on a hero’s shoulders! Which is a burden he does not have to carry by himself. And that brings me to reason number…
2. This figure pairs perfectly with Nezuko’s.
The sister he protects also protects him, even from the depths of her new demonic nature! She is as important as her older brother in this story. Far from being a defenseless maid, this girl is capable of some serious damage! Thankfully, a strong heart and incorruptible kindness are what guide her newfound powers.
Bandai's work on sculpting and painting the flames is astounding. Nezuko's Blood Demon Art almost seems to have a luminescence of its own! The same can be said of Tanjiro's Hinokami Kagura, burning red hot with his rage. 🔥◟(`ﮧ´ ◟ )🔥
Tanjiro will open the way, arriving in October 2021, then Nezuko will follow shortly thereafter, in November. Just like the game, it’s not that far off, so pre-order today!
Until next time! ヾ(＾∇＾)
