If you're a fan of the manga and anime franchise "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba" 鬼滅の刃, chances are you have your favorite character by now. With both the manga and the anime adaptation winning awards and ranking among the best of 2019 (the latter even making Crunchyroll's top 25 anime of the 2010s), it's no surprise that collaboration products and events are appearing at a dizzying pace as the Kimetsu train continues to pick up steam.
Now, there's another way you can show your appreciation for Demon Slayer: wearing your favorite character's fragrance!
Here's an exclusive lineup of perfumes by primaniacs, Masameya Inc.'s anime-themed specialty fragrance brand. The first series, which was released on October 31, 2019 featured fragrances for Tanjiro and Nezuko Kamado, Zenitsu Agatsuma, Inosuke Hashibira and Giyu Tomioka. The second series has now been announced and when it goes on sale on February 20th, you'll also be able to buy fragrances for Shinobu Kocho, Kanao Tsuyuri and Muzan Kibutsuji.
With the addition of Muzan, one wonders if a third series featuring other demons will follow.
