    POWAY, Calif., June 18, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Disguise, Inc., the global costume division of toy and consumer products manufacturer JAKKS Pacific, Inc.

    “Demon Slayer” is based on the manga series created by Koyoharu Gotoge published under SHUEISHA's JUMP COMICS, and follows the journey of Tanjiro Kamado, a young boy who joins the Demon Slayer Corps after his family is slaughtered by a demon, and his younger sister, Nezuko, is transformed into one. The series chronicles Tanjiro’s quest to find a cure for his sister. “Demon Slayer” has garnered widespread acclaim for its gripping storyline, well-developed characters, and stunning animation from the renowned studio ufotable. “Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Movie: Mugen Train” set the record as the biggest opening for any foreign-language film released in North America and has become one of the highest-grossing anime films of all time worldwide.

    “This popular anime has become an overnight sensation among fans and retailers,” said Tara Cortner, President and GM of Disguise, Inc. “We have an exciting debut line of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba costume accessories that is sure to delight fans and retailers alike.”
