Demon Slayer’s Tanjiro and the gang will be flying through the sky. Literally.
Japanese airline All Nippon Airways (ANA) has announced a collaboration with the popular anime series, where one of their planes will be adorned with characters from Demon Slayer. It will start flying on domestic routes in Japan starting from late January 2022, according to the report by Japanese publication The Mainichi.
In addition, ANA will also feature in-flight announcements with the characters’ voices. The B-767 plane’s design will feature images of the Demon Slayer characters, including protagonists Tanjiro Kamado, Nezuko Kamado, Zenitsu Agamatsu, and Hashibira Inosuke. A second Demon Slayer-themed aircraft is expected to operate sometime during fiscal 2021 through March 2022.
Starting from 1 December 2021, the Japanese airline will also launch a year-long campaign on all domestic flights providing children onboard with anime-inspired paper cups and toys. Demon Slayer episodes will also be shown on both international and domestic flights.
Junko Yazawa, senior vice president of customer experience management and planning at ANA, said:
“We are excited to partner with Demon Slayer to generate excitement and share Japanese culture with a wider audience.”
