The “‘Demon Slayer’ Gotoge Koyoharu Original Art Exhibition,” the first original art exhibition of the “Demon Slayer” manga series, will be held at Grand Front Osaka from July 14 to September 4, 2022. During the exhibition period, a collaboration café, “’Demon Slayer’ Tea House Kisatsu-tei,” will be open at the “CAFE Lab.”
“Demon Slayer” is a bloody sword-fighting adventure tale by Gotoge Koyoharu that began serialization in the 11th issue of Weekly Shonen Jump in 2016 and reached its reluctant conclusion in the 24th issue of the same magazine in 2020. The total number of copies of all 23 volumes of the manga has exceeded 150 million, including digital editions. The TV anime , which began airing in 2019, is scheduled to air its third season, “Swordsmith Village Arc.”
At the “’Demon Slayer’ Exhibition Tea House Kisatsu-tei,” a total of nine items from a collaboration menu of five drinks and four food items will be offered, featuring four main characters including Kamado Tanjiro, Kamado Nezuko, Agatsuma Zenitsu, and Hashibira Inosuke, as well as nine “Pillars,” the highest ranking swordsman in the Demon Slayer Corps.
The collaborative menu includes “Tanjiro’s Melon Soda Float,” which uses melon soda and black lemon jelly to recreate the hue of his haori, “Inosuke’s King of the Mountain Curry,” which features his face in yam kelp and topped with his favorite tempura, and “Iguro Obanai and Mitsuri Kanroji’s Sweet Pancake” with sauce and chocolate decorations inspired by the two pillars: Iguro and Kanroji. The menu is designed not only to highlight the characters, but also to provide a taste and aroma that will be enjoyed by all.
For each order of the collaboration menu, customers will receive an original coaster at random. The entire “CAFE Lab.” will be decorated in the world of “Demon Slayer” with original decorations featuring many characters.
The “Demon Slayer” exhibition will be held at “CAFE Lab.” on the first floor of the Grand Front Osaka North Building from July 14 to September 4, 2022. The “Kisatsu-tei” can be used only once per ticket on the same day as the ticket for the “‘Demon Slayer’ Gotoge Koyoharu Original Art Exhibition”, so you should visit the store along with the original art exhibition.
