MAN WITH A MISSION are once again combing their passion for music and art, delving into the world of anime. The band have released both the opening and closing themes that they have created for Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba –Swordsmith Village Arc-, which they have worked on in collaboration with Yuki Kajiura, the renowned composer.

The opening theme is called KIZUNA NO KISEKI’, and is an energetic and exuberant piece of raging pop-punk-laced rock. It’s unbelievably addictive, full of flashes of colour and action with a melody that you are going to be humming along to for the rest of your life. It also features milet, who bounces off the band wonderfully.

And the closing theme is ‘KOI KOGARE’, a much more reserved but no less brilliant piece of modern rock. Once again featuring milet, taking the wheel in a lot of ways this time around, it’s a wonderful curtain closer.

And if you want to dive a bit deeper into the actual anime, then here is the trailer for Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba –Swordsmith Village Arc:
