In collaboration with the studio that brought the hit manga to the small screen, ANA will feature in-flight announcements with the characters' voices, said ANA Holdings Inc. through a Kyodo News report.

The images of the "Demon Slayer" characters, including hero Tanjiro Kamado, will appear on a B-767, with a second Demon Slayer-themed aircraft expected to operate sometime during fiscal 2021 through March next year, according to ANA Holdings.

Starting Dec. 1, the Japanese airline will also launch a yearlong campaign on all domestic flights providing children onboard with anime-inspired paper cups and toys.

Episodes of "Demon Slayer," which tells the story of Kamado, an adolescent boy fighting human-eating demons while searching for a cure for his sister, who has turned into a demon, will also be shown on both international and domestic flights.

"We are excited to partner with Demon Slayer to generate excitement and share Japanese culture with a wider audience," said Junko Yazawa, senior vice president of customer experience management and planning at ANA.

A film based on the "Demon Slayer" manga series became the highest-grossing film in Japan's box-office history after its release in October 2020. The manga series, which put out its 23rd and final volume in book form that year, has sold over 150 million copies.
