Well, there is no need to say that Demon Slayer is at the top of its game right now. The anime is crushing any record that is coming in its way and is thriving at the box office. Also, we would like to tell you that the manga is still selling out overseas despite having ended this year.
The fans of the series are very desperate for more content, and this combined success hence proves that there is tons of room for more of Demon Slayer, but the fans of the series should not bet on a live-action adaptation to happen anytime soon.
Otaku USA got to the bottom of rumor recently after the fans of the series began gossiping about a possible live-action take on the series. The news began over in Japan as a supposed list of front-running actors surfaced.
Demon Slayer Live-Action | Shueisha Dismisses Rumors
When asked about such a project, the team of the Demon Slayer said that the manga was less than optimistic. Otaku USA reached out to the folks at Shonen Jump to see if this rumor of live-action was on t something.
It was there Shueisha said that they could not answer any such questions. This non-answer has some of the fans of the series held on to hope that the adaptation may happen yet, but others are not convinced yet.
The status of the manga makes any announcements regarding the project hard to keep a secret. A few good fans of the series believe a live-action adaptation would have been sussed out by now, but there are also those who disagree.
Jump Festa is just a few weeks away after all, and the event could drop such an announcement. It seems for now that the plans for a live-action take on Demon Slayer are tabled, but the rumored cast associated with such a project is solid.
The rumors said that Kanna Hashimoto was being eyed to play the role of Nezuko while Tanjiro went to Masaharu Fukuyama. This kind of casting is spot-on, so let us all hope their names linger around for an actual adaptation one day in the future.
