Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba: The Entertainment District Arc grabbed fans’ attention and didn’t let go.
Daki and Gyutaro are two of the most ruthless demons in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba and you can now pre-order them in a new ConoFig line from Aniplex. If you love villains with a good backstory, check out the pre-order before it ends!
What do we know about this figure?
The pre-order ends on October 7, 2022, and ships in June 2023, and it’ll set you back $123.98. It’s made of PVC and ABS.
ConoFig boasts that their figures are just the right size at an affordable price. This figure stands a little taller than a soda can and is full of details.
Daki’s obi sash and hair have a lot of movement, and Gyutaro looks ready to fight! His Kama looks creepy as he grins while carrying his little sister on his shoulders.
The only thing that would improve this figure is a unique base, but it’s just a transparent one. If you haven’t seen The Entertainment Arc, be warned, there will be spoilers.
Who are Daki and Gyutaro?
Like most demons, this pair of siblings started life as humans. Gyutaro’s mother attempted to kill him while he was still in her womb and after his birth.
But Gyutaro kept on living, and when his sister, Ume, was born, his outlook on life changed. He was proud to have such a beautiful sister and did his best to raise her.
He became a debt collector and became skilled with the Kama, a sickle weapon. Gyutaro often beat up those he collected debts from even after they paid him.
Ume became an Oiran or courtesan, and due to her white hair and blue eyes, she became very popular. But everything changed when Ume was 13.
While Gyutaro was working, a samurai was blinded in one eye by Ume for an unknown reason. In retaliation, she was bound and was almost burned to death.
Gyutaro found her in a hole, still clinging to life despite her injuries, and while he was screaming at the heavens to return her to normal. The samurai cut him down from behind.
A manager of one of the brothels told the samurai to finish the job while lamenting the loss of Ume as a courtesan. But Gyutaro killed them both and tried to find someone to help them, but no one would.
Except for the previous Upper Rank 6, Doma turned them into demons and wondered if they could join the upper ranks someday and claimed to be a nice guy for giving them his blood.
