■ Kimetsu Academy (Tanjiro Kamado, Nezuko Kamado, Giyu Tomioka)
■ Kimetsu Academy (Zenitsu Agatsuma, Inosuke Hashibira, Shinobu Kocho)
In Kimetsu Academy, Tanjiro Kamado is a stubborn but polite boy. He wears a memento, his father’s earrings, at school even though it is against the academy rules. Nezuko Kamado, a girl who always carries a baguette in her mouth, is always surprisingly hard to get up in the morning. Giyu Tomioka, the gym teacher, is famous for his harsh teaching style.
Zenitsu Agatsuma is a member of the academy’s disciplinary committee. Although he fears the naughty ones, he has the daily task of checking everyone’s attire according to the academy’s dress code. Raised by a boar, Inosuke Hashibira is the kind of student that brings nothing but his lunch to school while wearing short sleeves all year round. Shinobu Kocho is Miss Kimetsu in school, who is also a member of both the Pharmaceutical Research Club and the Fencing Club. These characters will appear in their Kimetsu Academy costumes along with their own Ultimate Arts!
