Hanae Natsuki as Kamado Tanjiro
I was surprised to hear that "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba" will be broadcast on Saturday Premium! The first ground-wave national broadcast! I'm happy! I think "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba" is an interesting work no matter how many times you watch it, so I would like you to watch it not only if you've never seen it, but if you already watched it as well! It would be great if you could go to the theater tor support Tanjiro and his friends! Everyone, please enjoy!
Kitou Akari as Kamado Nezuko
Right before the movie will be released, it will be ground-wave golden broadcast nationwide, so I think that it is a chance for those who have never seen "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba" to see it! You can go to the cinema right after you watch the broadcast, and I think that there will be a review before the movie for those who have watched it so far, so please look forward for the movie release.
Shimono Hiro as Agatsuma Zenitsu
It's amazing... Ground-wave nationwide broadcast!! What's more, it is Saturday Premium! It makes me happy to think that how many people will know "Damon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba".
And on Oct. 17, the second week of broadcast, on the next day after the release of "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train", those who are already familiar will re-watching it again, and those who have not seen it yet will watch this TV broadcast. I would be happy to get you to know about it. Anyway, I want many people to enjoy both the "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train and TV broadcasting !!
Matsuoka Yoshitsugu as Inosuke Hashibara
I wish many people watch this broadcast. The movie and the "Mugen Train "are coming soon, and I want it to be seen by people who don't know about Demon Slayers and who are already familiar with it. I am also tried really hard to express Inosuke's crunchy manners. All the actors have pitted their lives on it. I would be grateful if you could watch it on TV, and then go to the movie. The movie is also done well, so please look forward to it.
