The franchise of Demon Hunter is becoming increasingly popular in Japan with numerous fans who further expand the already impressive community around the jewel Koyoharu Gotouge. However, the success of the series is accompanied by uncomfortable situations that inexorably multiply.

While the anime returns to cover its fans in the new season of Demon Slayer, which will soon end the adaptation of the Ghost Train saga, several people in Japan are now using the franchise to sell themed products. According to the new anti-piracy laws Shueisha was able to strengthen the golden fist and there were numerous arrests in the past year.

This time it was a 34-year-old woman from Shibuya, Tokyo who was arrested on suspicion of violating copyright laws. In fact, the woman seems to have started selling from 2019 Cake with decorations dedicated to the characters of Demon Slayer at a price of 100 or 115 euros each. During the interrogation, the defendant would have added: “I thought I could sell the cakes faster if I made them from a popular anime character. I knew it was a crime.“As of 2019, the woman would have bagged around 50,000 euros in this way.

We don't know how the matter will play out, but this is just another case of arrests for the illegal sale of copyrighted material. On the other hand, what do you think of the question? Let us know with a comment below.
