posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

Singer LiSA's opening theme song "Gurenge" for the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba anime was certified platinum by the Japan Record Association on September 22. "Gurenge" (Red Lotus) has exceeded 300,000 downloads, the first track by a female artist to do so this year. The song's music video is also trending with over five million views. Fans are still watching the video 60,000 to 70,000 times every day after its debut four months ago.

LiSA returned to the series to sing its new ending song "from the edge" with composer Yuki Kajiura.

LiSA has performed theme songs for such anime as Angel Beats!, Fate/Zero, il sole penetra le illusioni ~ Day Break Illusion, Sword Art Online, Sword Art Online II, Sword Art Online the Movie: Ordinal Scale, My Hero Academia, Qualidea Code, Nisekoi:, The irregular at magic high school, and Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works.

The series premiered on April 6, and Aniplex of America has licensed the anime. The show is streaming on Hulu, Crunchyroll, and FunimationNow.
