Lenovo launches Demon Slayer-inspired gaming chair: Kimetsu no Yaiba

To say that Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is the most popular anime today is no longer an exaggeration. Each new volume of the manga breaks the sales record of the previous one, and the first film in the franchise, called Mugen Train, has already become one of Japan’s biggest box office hits.

And it is thanks to this gigantic popularity that the work continues to receive the most different products constantly. However, a product inspired by Demon Slayer drew attention for being extremely unusual.

As you can see, the chair is inspired by the character Giyu Tomioka, the Water Hashira, and has the same colors and details as the character’s clothes.

However, what really steals the show from this chair is the fact that it comes with a katana attached to one of the armrests. As expected, the katana is exactly the same as the one used by Tomioka, but it is only decorative and cannot be removed.

But although it is obvious that this chair would be the most successful anywhere it was launched, it is part of a promotional action in Japan, and only 5 of them were produced by Lenovo. A real pity, isn’t it?

A line of gamer chairs inspired by the characters of Demon Slayer would be a true consumer dream for any fan of the work.

 

Demon Slayer – Kimetsu no Yaiba, is a Japanese series of shōnen manga written and illustrated by Koyoharu Gotōge.

The manga has been serialized since February 2016 in the weekly magazine Weekly Shonen Jump and has been compiled, so far, in 17 tankōbon volumes by Shueisha publisher.

An adaptation of the series for a 26-episode anime, produced by the ufotable studio, premiered in April 2019 and quickly became the most popular anime of the year, and can be watched in full on Crunchyroll.
