Could official clothing and cosplays be coming?
On July 14, the Japanese trademark and copyright database J-PlatPat updated their newly accepted trademarks for June 24, and on that list were some very familiar designs that in the past year have become hugely recognizable...
Shueisha, on June 24, applied for the trademarks for six designs from Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, and was granted those trademarks on July 14. The designs, which are below, are now trademarked for arcade games, clothing, tissues, and even seaweed. The most exciting aspect of the trademark is haori, a type of kimono jacket that is seen in the TV anime. Maybe we might see replicas being released soon?
Here are the all designs that were trademarked. Can you name who they're all based off?
You can find the trademarks on the J-PlatPat website from the numbers 2020-078058 to 2020-078063 under the trademark search area.
