The Uzui Tengen spokesman directly replied that he had read the manga before working on the TV series and happened to watch “Demon Slayer” on TV one day: “And I was totally surprised, in what a quality the anime was finished and I immediately thought: All right, I have to be there!“
Konishi-san then added with a smile that while that wouldn’t directly answer the question, he was keen to emphasize how big his irrepressible will was to participate in this work. “It is for me a very great honorthat I can finally be a part of this project.”
