Demon Slayer Yukaku-hen reveals Yoriichi’s voice actor

It is possible that Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba It took a hot minute to catch up, but this week it took a step forward. At long last, season two has gotten into its main conflict, and the Entertainment District arc is so much better for it.

To make things even better, the show put on a major performance this week that fans didn’t see coming, and now we know who will be playing! Yoriichi Tsugikuni in the series!

For those of you keeping up with season two of Kimetsu no Yaiba on Crunchyroll or Funimation, they will know that Yoriichi was destined to appear in no time. The character plays an important role in the arc of the Entertainment District, and Ufotable started working on the series weeks ago.

Who does the voice of Yoriichi Tsugikuni?

Veteran voice actor Kazuhiko Inoue, who is a true legend in the Japanese voice actor community, voices Yoriichi Tsugikuni. Now for those who don’t know Yoriichi, this man is one who will want to read ASAP.

During the Sengoku Era, this swordsman was considered a legendary Demon Slayer, and he has quite a compelling reason to fight. Spoiler Warning! It turns out that one of his loved ones turned into a demon years ago, and Yoriichi has been trying to stop them ever since.

Not much of Yoriichi is shown in episode 6, but it’s more than enough to pique our interest. Even viewers who only watch anime are freaking out over the epic intro, and it’s hard to blame them given their looks.

After all, Kazuhiko Inoue is a talented actor (seiyuu) that fans will know for playing Kakashi in Naruto and Gildarts in Fairy Tail. Inoue has also worked on shows like JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, City Hunter, Fruits Basket, Attack on Titan, and more.

As for the new season of Kimetsu no Yaiba, fans can expect the Entertainment District arc to evoke more memories of Yoriichi. The killer plays a huge role in the series and as we learn more about his family, things start to fall into place for the character.

Finally, given how well Ufotable did with Yoriichi’s introduction, it’s safe to say that his first fight sequence will be absolutely mind-blowing. AmericanPost.News also reported that Demon Slayer Yukaku-hen Episode 6 features the Awakened Form of Nezuko.
