Demon Slayer Inspires Line of Die-Cast Toy Cars

Demon Slayer Inspires Line of Die-Cast Toy CarsThe Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba merchandising just doesn’t stop. The latest Slayer-inspired offering is a set of die-cast cars from Tomica, the Japanese equivalent of Matchbox.

There are five vehicles on offer, each of which retails for 880 yen, or about 8 bucks. Here they are:

Toyota 86

Subaru BRZ

Nissan Leaf

Subaru Forester

Subaru Sambar

I probably don’t need to remind y’all that Demon Slayer is set in the Taisho Era, long before cars were, like, a thing, making this especially ridiculous. But hey, why not. The cars go on sale in Japan this April.

Here’s how Funimation describes Demon Slayer:

It’s the Taisho period in Japan. Tanjiro, a kindhearted boy who sells charcoal for a living, finds his family slaughtered by a demon. To make matters worse, his younger sister, Nezuko, the sole survivor, has been transformed into a demon. Though devastated by this grim reality, Tanjiro resolves to become a demon slayer to turn his sister back and kill the demon that massacred his family.
