Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba fans stay winning. Grammy Award-winning Houston rapper and unabashed anime fan Megan Thee Stallion has a new nail look inspired by the hit shounen anime and we are living!
Take a look below at the sheer artistry and precision! This hand-painted manicure sports a look inspired by Tanjiro’s signature green and black checkerboard haori pattern, with a doe-eyed and delicate Nezuko pattern as well.
Her manicurist slayed this one. And no, I’m not apologizing for the pun. Megan said: anime but make it fashion; sakuga, but make it nail art. And she delivered.
Make no mistake, Megan Thee Stallion has been about her real hot nerd ‘ish. She has referenced Naruto and Sasuke in her bawdy and braggadocious hit, “Girls in the Hood;” she appeared on the cover of Paper Magazine in full-on Shoto Todoroki-inspired cosplay, and has previously rocked a JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure inspired nail set.
It’s only fitting for Megan Thee Stallion to rep Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba next, as she’s a self-proclaimed hot girl and this series is Thee hottest anime around at the moment.
Can we talk about how the franchise’s debut feature film, Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Movie: Mugen Train has become Japan’s biggest box office hit of all time? For fans in North America, both subbed and dubbed versions of the movie comes to theaters on April 23 and digital on June 22.
With Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 2 on its way sometime this year, the anticipation is at an all-time high. If I could, I would call up Megan’s manicurist and ask for the “Tanjiro” to celebrate the momentous occasion.
But alas, I do not have Coca Michelle on speed dial. Are you excited for the what’s to come for Demon Slayer? The movie? Share this post and let us know! And stay tuned to Funimation for the latest news on all things anime, this season and beyond.
