Demon Slayer, the Dance of the Fire God recreated by a Japanese master

How would the Hinokami Kagura, the name of the technique used by Tanjiro Kamado in the episode 19 of Demon Slayer, look like: Kimetsu no Yaiba, if it were reproduced in reality? A Japanese artist skilled in the use of the katana answered the question, making some video clips with tens of millions of views on social media.

Kiwamu Miyakubo, also known on social networks with the nickname Kiwamissimo, describes himself as "an artist who loves katanas and fire"and he creates videos on commission where he dances with his inseparable blade. After the success of the Demon Slayer anime, requests have clearly increased, as well as the views on his videos.

At the bottom you can take a look at two clips in which Kiwamu shows his sword skills, while performing a dance very similar to that of the God of Fire. The artist's Twitter and Instagram profiles count dozens of videos published, all recorded in different places and with different techniques. From this point of view, it is definitely interesting to note the impact that an anime has had on an artist's career.
