Bandai Spirits confirmed that it will produce and sell Proplicas of Tengen Uzui’s Nichirin Blade from the Demon Slayer franchise. The company made the announcement on the Tamashii Nations Twitter account.
Tengen Uzui is the Sound Hashira combatant who is extensively featured in the Entertainment District arc. This arc is part of the second anime season, and it started airing in December 2021. Tengen wields a pair of cleavers connected with a metal chain. Due to the sheer size of the weapons, he stores them with wrapping cloth in lieu of sword sheathes.
The Proplica will reproduce the Nichirin Blades to the details. In addition to the amber-colored blades, it will also feature the “Destroyer of Demons” kanji inscription.
Proplica—a portmanteau of Prop and Replica—is a series of replicas that reproduce weapons and other iconic items from popular anime shows. Bandai Spirits had previously revealed Proplicas of Nichirin Blades from other Demon Slayer characters, such as Tanjiro Kamado, Kyojuro Rengoku, and Inosuke Hashibira. Outside of Demon Slayer, the company also produced item replicas from Sword Art Online and Jujutsu Kaisen.
Bandai Spirits will reveal more details about the Proplica of Tengen Uzui’s Nichirin Blade from Demon Slayer, including its pre-order and release dates, on February 10, 2022.
