A replica of the Nichirin Blade from Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba will soon be available to pre-order. This replica katana comes with plenty of bells and whistles that set it apart from other replicas. Not only is it a 1:1 scale, but the replica blade also comes will three different modes – each providing sound effects and spoken lines from Tanjiro throughout the series. You can pre-order the PROPLICA Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Nichirn Blade for ¥7,000 or roughly $66 on October 1, 2020. The Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba replica Nichirin Blade will ship in February 2021. [Thanks, Famitsu!]
As mentioned above, this Nichirin Blade comes with three modes. Since this replica is modeled after the one Tanjiro uses, naturally, it has a “Water Breathing” technique mode. This specific mode will use SFX from the anime (along with spoken lines from Tanjiro) to truly emulate the feeling of using the “Water Breathing” technique.
Additional modes include “Do Your Best!” Tanjiro mode, and “Demon Slaying” mode. Similarly to the “Water Breathing” technique mode, select voice lines will play while these modes are activated, with more than seventy lines available. The replica sword can also play the opening for Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. You will be able to listen to “Gurrenge” by LiSA with the Nichirin Blade to evoke the feeling of being a demon slayer.
