The Popularity Of The Demon Slayer franchise:
The Demon Slayer manga has managed to surpass the record held by the Dragon Ball series, the Lofty Manga Record. The record works on the basis of the number of manga copies a volume manages to sell.
Dragon Ball held the number 1 rank with 6.19 globally and 4,29 within Japan but was pushed down to a second place by Demon Slayer with 6.52 copies sold per volume in both the markets.
The Demon Slayer Trademark Saga:
With great popularity comes great struggles too. One main factor contributing to the revenue of the franchise is merchandising.
Shueisha filed many trademarks for the clothing patterns of a few of the Demon Slayer characters such as Giyu Tomioka, Shinobu Kocho, and Kyojuro Rengoku to make merch profit.
While their first round of attempts for the same was successful, they were denied trademarks for the main characters’ clothing patterns, Tanjiro Kamado, Nezuko Kamado, and Zenitsu Agatsuma.
It’s unclear as to why the same has been denied but it is safe to say that Shueisha will not be backing down easily and will definitely attempt again.
In other news, the Demon Slayer: The Hinokami Chronicles is getting an English version and a gameplay trailer showing Giyu Tomioka in action is out now.
