ANA passengers get to fly in 'Demon Slayer' anime-themed aircraft by next year
All Nippon Airways planes designed with the anime series “Demon Slayer” characters will begin transporting passengers on domestic routes from late January next year.
Demon Slayer characters, such as hero Tanjiro Kamado, will adorn a B-767, with a second aircraft flaunting a Demon Slayer theme set to fly sometime during fiscal 2021, which runs through March 2022.
In early December, ANA will feature in-flight announcements with the voices of the anime characters.
The airline's yearlong campaign on all domestic flights that would provide children onboard with anime-inspired paper cups and toys begins Dec. 1.
Meanwhile, Demon Slayer episodes will be shown on both international and domestic flights.
Junko Yazawa, ANA's senior vice president of customer experience management and planning, said they are excited to team up with Demon Slayer in generating excitement and sharing Japanese culture with a wider audience.
A Demon Slayer manga series film became Japan's highest-grossing film after its release in October 2020.
The manga series, which consisted of 23 volumes, has sold over 150 million copies.
