April 22nd is a special day for everyone's favorite boar mask-wearing wild boy...
April 22nd marks the birthday of Inosuke Hashibira, and recently animation studio ufotable took to Twitter with a special chibi-style illustration celebrating the special day for everyone's favorite dual sword-wielding, boar mask-sporting wild child from the popular manga and TV anime, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba.
The illustration features Zenitsu, Inosuke, Tanjiro, and Nezuko in chibi-form enjoying a meal of "tendon", a Japanese dish that combines tempura with a bowl of rice. The drawing also involves a play-on-words, since "tendon" also refers to a style of comedy that involves repeating the same gag over and over again, much like Inosuke's habit of charging headlong at things in an effort to prove his superior strength and combat prowess.
Happy birthday, Inosuke! You are a precious little ball of demon-murder.
