Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba manga series may have already ended, but fans are still not over it yet. One cosplayer even impressively recreated a difficult technique.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba ended its manga series with chapter 205. It was a bittersweet goodbye for the fans who have followed Koyoharu Gotōge’s comics masterpiece.
But all things must come to an end, including that of demon slayer Tanjiro Kamado’s journey to avenging his family.
The manga series released the final chapter last May 17. And while it’s almost a month since that conclusion, it’s popularity remains at the peak.
Fans all over the world continue to talk about it and pay tribute to it. One certain cosplayer recently got viral for impressively recreating one of the comic’s characters.
Recreating an intricate technique
As cited in Comic Book, an artist by the handle name @yukaran_2525 posted a video on her Twitter account that impressed her fellow fans.
She cosplayed as Mitsuri Kanroji, a Demon Slayer, and the Love Hashira of the Demon Slayer Corps.
The character is known for her pink and neon green braided hair and modified purple-tinted version of the standard Demon Slayer uniform.
And though she did not get much exposure on screen, she is a well-loved character that created a lasting impact.
In artist @yukaran_2525’s video, she closely recreated the look of Mitsuri. But what made the video go viral was her recreation of the techniques from her Love Breathing, Swaying Love – Wildclaw.

It’s one of Mitsuri’s breathing styles, which is described as “somersaults backward through the air creating a long whiplike string of attacks, before coiling her sword around her opponent’s neck.”
It’s a move that appears to be very intricate and almost impossible to copy in the real world.
But the cosplayer proved it wrong as she successfully duplicated the athletic technique with grace and ease.
As of writing, the Twitter post already has 1.2 million views, 21.8K retweets, and 94.6K likes. She also received so many responses of awe and amazement.
