The story takes place during the Taisho Period of Japan and it about the protagonist, Kamado Tanjirou, whose family got killed by a demon. He joined the demon slayer corp to slay the demon, and to find a cure to turn his demonized sister, Nezuko, back to a human.
The TV Anime series was aired between Apr. to Sep. 2019, and a movie is scheduled in 2020. As cosplay can be said as the indicator of the popularity of a work, there was a lot of cosplay of the characters from this work in events and SNS.
Other than Tanjirou and Nezuko, there are also various attractive characters. Among them, the captain level of the demon slayer corp (also known as “Pillars” is quite popular. The fans had formed a couple between the demon hater and nagging Snake Pillar, Iguro Obanai, and the Love Pillar, Kanroji Mitsuri who joined the corp to find her soul mate, and this coupling is known as “ObaMitsu”.
Both of them have a good relationship with each other but there aren't many scene showing them flirting in public. Thus, the fans' dreams are mostly depicted in the doujin instead… Thus, some cosplayers are are challenging to show the appeal of this coupling “ObaMitsu” as well.
