Perfectly Wild: Demon Slayer Fan Stuns with Spot-On Inosuke Cosplay

Demon Slayer: Kimestu Yaiba’s boar-masked master of Beast Breathing, Inosuke Hashibira is brought to life in a new cosplay.

Demon Slayer Inosuke is excited to fight demons in his new cosplay.

Edoardovolpii, a Reddit user and cosplayer, made the warrior come to life. Though they present Inosuke without his iconic boar mask on, the costume still offers a screen-accurate representation of the intimidating mask, as well as a wig that recreates Inosuke’s surprisingly pretty two-tone blue hair. The costume also features Inosuke’s version of the traditional Demon Slayer Corps uniform, which retains the pants but ditches the shirt and haori for a fur-lined sash.

While Inosuke is part of the same Final Selection exam as Zenitsu Agatsuma and Tanjiro Kamado, he is not met with his future allies until Tsuzumi Mansion, in which he attacks and antagonizes the swordsmen. While his friendship with Tanjiro and Zenitsu gets off to an explosive beginning, he ultimately becomes a valuable part of the trio, with the brute force and demon-tracking capabilities of his Beast Breathing style becoming an invaluable instrument in the future battles against Muzan Kibutsuji as well as the demons of the Twelve Kizuki.

The trio recently demonstrated just how far they’ve gotten during the popular Entertainment District arc, in which they worked in tandem to defeat the Upper-rank demon Daki and her brother, Gyutaro. On February 13th, the Entertainment District arc concluded the second season of the show. Crunchyroll has made subtitled versions of both anime seasons available to stream via Funimation as well as Crunchyroll. The English dub of the Entertainment District arc recently premiered in February. 20. The anime series has already confirmed that it will continue by releasing an adaptation of the Swordsmith Village arc, which is currently without a release date. The cast and crew of the two previous seasons of the show are all scheduled to reprise their roles for the continuation of the show.
