Demon Slayer

The live-action stage musical of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is now available to stream internationally.

The first part of the stage production ran in Japan from January to February 2020, with the second part returning in August 2021, and is now available to watch in international territories around the world.

As of June 21, viewers in the United Kingdom, United States, Canada, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa can watch on Crunchyroll.

An official synopsis for the adaptation reads: “One day in Japan during the Taisho era, Tanjiro, a kind young man who sells coal, finds his family slaughtered by a demon. Worse yet, the only survivor, his younger sister Nezuko, is turned into a demon.

“Despite his hopeless situation, Tanjiro makes up his mind to become a Demon Slayer in order to turn his sister back into a human and slay the demon who killed his family. This sibling duo’s tragic tale, interwoven with humans and demons, begins now!”

“Experience the story of Tanjiro in a whole new way!” shared Crunchyroll on X. “This tragic tale takes the stage in Demon Slayer -KIMETSU NO YAIBA– the stage.”

The stage adaptation of the Shonen Jump hit by Koyoharu Gotoge stars Ryota Kobayashi as Tanjiro Kamado, Akari Takaishi as Nezuko Kamado, Keisuke Ueda as Zenitsu Agatsuma, Yugo Sato as Inosuke Hashibira and more.

Meanwhile, in other anime stage news, the theatre adaptation of Studio Ghibli classic Spirited Away is currently running on the West End Stage at the London Coliseum.

The 2001 Hayao Miyazaki’s animated film has been reimagined for the stage – performed in Japanese with English subtitles – by Tony Award-winning director John Caird.

The new arrival also follows the success of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of My Neighbour Totoro.
