Demon Slayer released episode 6 of the Entertainment District Arc this Sunday, and it featured the appearance of a mysterious swordsman character voiced by Kazuhiko Inoue. Besides recognizing his voice, the ending credits of the episode also reveal that the voice actor, who we know as Kakashi from Naruto and Gildarts from Fairy Tail, is in charge of the character. His name was not revealed yet, and even the credits use just the ‘Swordsman’.
Some of Kazuhiko Inoue’s most notable roles are Kakashi Hatake from Naruto, Madara from Natsume’s Book of Friends, Gildarts Clive from Fairy Tail, Kars from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, Hatori Souma from Fruits Basket (2001), among others.
