‘Naruto’ franchise veteran Akira Ishida dwells in ‘Demon Slayer’ movie


As Demon Slayer: Infinity Train has been making waves on Japan’s big screens, a Naruto cast has been added to the team! Akira Ishida, a Naruto series veteran, is bringing the character Akaza to life.

Demon Slayer: Infinity Train hit Japan’s theaters with massive impact. It currently holds new records and even bagged eye-popping profits in just a day of showing.

What’s more interesting to watch in Tanjiro and his friends’ journey is the recent reveal of the character, Akaza.

A Naruto series character gives life to Akaza. He is the majestic Gaara in the franchise, no other than Akira Ishida.

Akaza: The new antagonist

The new character of the Demon Slayer movie, Akaza, plays as one of the main antagonists.

In the popular anime franchise, he acts as one of the highest-ranking demons. And fans are enjoying the newest adventures of the franchise with the new reveals.

The enormous fanbase of the anime gets so excited with the Demon Slayer Corps in Japan. This is mainly because of the new breath-taking adventure with Tanjiro and his friends stuck aboard the demon-infested train.

However, North American fans will still be waiting until next year to witness the next chapter of the popular Shonen series gets off the ground.

Demon Slayer: Infinity Train is already a record-breaking movie. Aside from garnering billions of yen in just a day, it also has broken records for receiving the most screens in Japan’s theaters.

From Hidden Leaf Village villain to Mugen Train‘s demon

ANN reported Akira Ishida’s addition to the cast of Demon Slayer: Infinity Train. Being the Hidden Leaf Village‘s former villain, he acquires an equally appropriate role in the film.

Gaaga (Akira Ishida) is an enemy who turned Naruto’s vital ally in the Naruto franchise. Now, he will be hated once again as he will become torn to Tanjiro’s road of achieving peace.

The second season of Demon Slayer has yet to be confirmed by the animation studio- Ufotable. The said studio is responsible for both the first season of the anime and this first feature-length film.

Meanwhile, there are rumors that confirmation might be arriving sooner than we think. Who knows! The franchise is still doing well!
