Premium Bandai opened pre-orders for a scale replica of Demon Slayer Inosuke Hashibira’s Nichirin blades. The two PROPLICA blades feature over 100 different voice lines, sound effects, and BGM. The blades will cost ¥16,500 (about $145), and ship sometime in August 2022. As of writing, the replica is only available in Japan. [Thanks, Hobby Watch!]
Notably, the voice lines include iconic phrases such as “I’m going to win against you, Gonpachiro Kamaboko!” and “Using my head? That kind of thing isn’t like me at all!” Each blade has unique chipped designs, and the hilts are molded to look like the original wrappings in the anime and manga. The total length of both swords is approximately 935mm (about 36 inches). Both blades also come with their own stands for display.
Additionally, the replica blades feature two buttons, one dedicated to a Boar Rush mode and the other to a Demon Slayer mode. Users can also cross the two hilts to activate the Beast Breathing sound effect which plays from both swords. Background music can also play simultaneously and includes “As a Demon Squad ~ With Inosuke,” and Inosuke’s theme from the anime’s first season.

Previously, PROPLICA released a scale replica of Tanjiro’s Nichirin blade as well as Rengoku’s. Those two swords also featured similar sound effects and BGM gimmicks. PROPLICA is also selling a version of Rengoku’s blade from the recent Demon Slayer: Mugen Train movie.
The Demon Slayer Inosuke scale replica Nichirin blades are immediately available for pre-order in Japan. The blades will cost ¥16,500 (about $145), and ship sometime in August 2022.
