Fan Recreates Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba OP Using Irasutoya's Free Picture Database
posted on by Kim Morrissy
Irasutoya is a free database which provides cute illustrations drawn by artist Takashi Mifune for non-commercial use. The database is quite robust, covering a wide range of themes, characters, and objects. One fan even managed to use the assets to recreate the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba OP to an amusing degree of accuracy.
The original source video on YouTube and Nico Nico Douga, which were first posted around June 11, appears to have been deleted from both sites, making it difficult to track down the original poster, but various Twitter users have reposted the video in all of its amusing glory.
