Kimetsu no Yaiba‘s Nezuko Kamado and her voice actress, Akari Kitō, will be featured in Weekly Playboy magazine coming out soon in Japan.
Although the Kimetsu no Yaiba manga is over, ufotable’s television anime, as well as the film that followed and the new wave of episodes that is on the way have kept the series relevant.
But neither should promotion be neglected. This is why the characters in the franchise have had a presence through various collaborations, as well as in other media. That will happen precisely with the nice Nezuko Kamado.
Nezuko Kamado is very popular in Kimetsu no Yaiba
Tanjiro’s sister will be featured in Playboy magazine. No, not the famous American publication of the same name, but actually Weekly Playboy, which is different and has nothing to do with the aforementioned.
In Japan it is published by the Shueisha publishing house, and although it has many articles of interest, it also brings photos of attractive models in swimsuits and other outfits. She is focused on the adult audience.
Sure, don’t expect to see Nezuko from Kimetsu no Yaiba the same way. In the next issue of Weekly Playboy, due out on July 26 in the Land of the Rising Sun, there will be a special article about this young demon, and incidentally, her voice actress, Akari Kitō.
It will be an interview with her, and it will be the first time that she appears in this type of publication. Some of the content of this talk was shared recently.
Kitō commented “everyone in the studio had praised me, so I was happy to be photographed.” To that, she added, ‘As for Weekly Playboy, they have a strong image of gravure, so I asked myself,’ Am I a good fit? ‘(Laughter)’ ‘
Afterward, she remarked “in my head, I might have got the impression that they show a lot of skin.” It should be noted that gravure models usually pose in bikini or lingerie. However, nudes are rare.
Obviously, we don’t know what kind of photos Akari Kitō will be taken. This is not the first time that characters from Kimetsu no Yaiba have appeared on the cover of a magazine.
The same thing happened recently with the August issue of Spur magazine, focused on women’s fashion. In that case, the stylist Kumiko Iijima and the fashion historian Hisako Anjо̄ participated.
There they talked about the style of clothing used by the characters in the series.
