The Christmas of 2020 brought us the wonderful gift from miko (exist†trace), ERY (KiLLKiLLS), and Sayaka Kurokawa, a gift of a beautiful cover of Homura, the movie theme song for “Kimetsu no Yaiba Movie: Mugen Ressha-hen” (Demon Slayer Movie: Infinity Train), originally sung by LiSA.
As if it wasn’t awesome enough, the three close friends are shown wearing cosplays of the iconic characters of the anime. Sayaka Kurokawa on vocals assumes the role of the main protagonist Tanjiro Kamado, while the guitarist miko from exist†trace embodies Nezuko Kamado, and bassist ERY as the scary Muzan Kibutsuji.
Of course, this is not the first time that bands have covered the songs of LiSA. In the visual kei space, we saw Rumbless. give their metal interpretation of Gurenge and recently even GACKT sung Homura while in cosplay. It’s no surprise as to why though, Homura has together with the record-breaking Demon Slayer movie been a great success, and as of writing, the music video on YouTube reached beyond the astronomic number of 100 million views (close to 120 million)!
Seeing our favorite artists wearing cosplays is always fun and a way to discover them in a new light. We were particularly surprised to see Sayaka Kurokawa with short hair, which suits her perfectly! It’s even more impressive after she stated on Twitter that she cut the wig herself all night long. ERY’s cat’s eye lenses are also very eye-catching, even when she had trouble with them turning horizontally and instead looking like a pair of goat’s eyes! Feel free to tell us your favorite cosplay between these three beauties!
Last but not least, in Sayaka Kurokawa recent tweet she mentioned how this video was “Part 1”, so we might see more of the trio in the near future. Stay tuned if you are as excited as us!
