Demon Slayer’s Love Hashira, Mitsuri Kanroji, is getting a 1/8 scale figure that shows off her fighting skills. The figure, prized at ¥24,200 (around $170) and made to order, is actually modeled on the moves Mitsuri pulled in her battle against Zohakuten. The figure is made to order (one person can order up to three) and reservations will be open until September 3 on the Aniplex Plus shop. The expected delivery date is August 2024.
Kana Hanazawa and Kira Buckland voice Mitsuri in the Demon Slayer anime. Mitsuri plays an important part in the currently airing third season, which is set to end this Sunday with a 70-minute final episode.
