Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Joins the Uniqlo UT Collection

Demon Slayer’s phenomenal rise to the top is something we’ve brought up on more than one occasion as the manga continues to sell gangbusters and we receive merchandise ranging from Tamagotchi to sports drinks and more. The phenomenon shows no signs of slowing down any time soon, either. Considered in this light, perhaps the most surprising thing about the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba UT clothing collection is that it took this long for the series to receive its own line of Uniqlo graphic t-shirts.

Set for release in two stages on August 7th and 17th, this line of 13 shirts is split into a set of shirts based on the art from the original manga series by Kiyoharu Gotouge and a set based on the art from the ufotable anime series. The first 8 shirts from the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba UT collection will be sold in Uniqlo stores at the earlier date and be based on the manga art, utilizing recognizable panels from the manga as part of the designs. For example, a pink shirt with a pocket features Nezuko peaking out from above it in a rather subtle yet cute design, while another white shirt with the basic synopsis for the series surrounding artwork of Tanjiro and Nezuko is another standout from the collection.

I’m more drawn to the anime shirts, however, with these set for a release in GU stores stocking UT shirts on August 17th. A white shirt featuring the silhouette of all of the Demon Slayer Corps is a striking design from this set, as is the green long-sleeved shirt.

While prices for the GU anime collection of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba UT shirts is currently unknown, the Uniqlo collection is listed on the Uniqlo website for 990yen each in sizes ranging from XXS to 4XL, making them a cheap yet stylish article of clothing for any fan of the series. You can find out more about both collections over on the Uniqlo and GU collaboration websites.
