Success of the last two years, Demon slayer and The witcher have conquered the web and have become major subjects within pop culture … For reasons not so distant as that: the two works tell the story of a main character embarked on a singular adventure, where he must be fight against creatures each stranger than the next to protect a loved one. All in a universe that gives pride of place to magic and bloody battles. Do we get along well, The witcher and Demon slayer remain intrinsically very distant works but whose similarities may inspire some creators. This is the case of Ameen, an artist. On Twitter, he shared his drawings where he imagines what the Demon Slayer characters would look like in The Witcher:

So Zenitsu, Tanjiro, Nezuko, Rengoku and Inosuke were the subject of a brushstroke to be transposed into the universe of Geralt of Rivia. If their features have changed, they still kept their original appearance.
If the association of ideas can make you smile, it can be justified by the cardboard that is currently making The witcher and Demon slayer. Regarding the first, its season 2 is a hit on Netflix with more than 142.4 million hours watched the week of its release: it’s more than Squid Game when it launched. A second season which generated commitment, since many players decided to (re) play the witcher games. On the other hand, Demon Slayer is also one of the bestsellers of his domain: in Japan, it is the second best-selling manga of 2023 … while it ended in November 2023. The animated film The Infinity Train broke all records (best launch, biggest Japanese box office figures …) while the second season of the anime is currently airing and covers the story arc of the Pleasure district : it is available in simulcast on Wakanim and Crunchyroll.
