Mizuno has released a "Shoe Dryer" designed with the character of the popular anime "Kimetsu no Yaiba". It will be on sale from November 19th at Mizuno directly managed stores, Mizuno official online shops, and some Mizuno product dealers.
Devil's Blade "Shoe Dryer"
"Shoe dryer" is a desiccant for shoes that has a hygroscopic effect. Uses "Bioguard CG-X", a fabric with excellent antibacterial properties, safety, and durability on the surface of the fabric. Suppresses the odor inside the shoes due to sweat. After use, it can be used repeatedly by drying it in the sun.
Mizuno plans to develop products designed with the image of the character of "Kimetsu no Yaiba" in baseball, swim, badminton, soft tennis, table tennis, and golf. A lineup will be added to Mizuno's Devil's Blade website.
Anime "Kimetsu no Yaiba"
A TV anime that started broadcasting in April 2019. Based on the manga work by Koyoharu Gotouge, which is being published by Shueisha Jump Comics, which has a cumulative circulation of over 150 million copies in volumes 1 to 23 of the original book.
This work, which begins when Tanjiro Kamado, a boy whose family was killed by a demon, joins the "demon slaughter corps" to return his younger sister, Sadako, who became a demon, is a sad story of people and demons. The devilish swordsman and the occasionally drawn comical scenes also gained popularity and became a big topic not only in Japan but all over the world.
From October 16, 2020, the story "Infinite Train Edition" following the TV anime "Tanjiro Kamado Ritsushi Hen" will be released as a theater animation. In 2021, the TV anime "Yukou Hen" will be broadcast.
* The correct notation for "禰" in Sadako is "ne + 爾".
