Tanjiro Demon Slayer gets new costume to fight his enemies in the Noh-Kyogen theatrical adaptation of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba in Japan.

Demon Slayer: Tanjiro Kamado from Kimetsu no Yaiba received a change in a new visual for the upcoming theatrical adaptation of the popular Japanese manga series.

The latest poster featuring Tanjiro in his new outfit was illustrated by Koyoharu Gotouge, creator of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba.

It depicts the young hero in traditional Noh clothing that reflects the iconic black-and-green plaid haori he usually wears in the series.

Upcoming theatrical performances were Noh-Kyogen and Kyogen performances each being some of the oldest forms of classical theater still performed today.

Actors usually wear masks to give dramatic performances featuring elements of dance, music and poetry.

On the other hand, Kyogen is more comedic through the use of dialogue and is usually staged between Noh sets.
