Japanese man takes photos of kids in Demon Slayer cosplay


Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba has been super popular recently, especially after the new Demon Slayer the Movie: Infinity Train film made its theatrical debut back in October. In November, a Japanese photographer made his son and a few other kids cosplay the Demon Slayer series. The pint-sized cosplayers immediately went viral and netizens couldn’t help but gush over the photos.
