Sword art online isn’t the only anime series I will hit for the Yomiuri Giants today. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is back for their second collaboration with the Central League baseball team, offering new baseball bats and gloves inspired by the stars of the series!
The new line of products reinterprets the iconic colors and designs of Tanjiro, Nezuko and others on a range of baseball gloves. But these are not just standard gloves – each is the same model used by one of the players. For example, Tanjiro’s glove is the same type used by catcher Seiji Kobayashi, and Nezukos is the choice of shortstop Hayato Sakamoto.
Despite the different gloves, they all have the same price: 165,000 yen each. The Tanjiro-inspired racket (also Sakamoto’s choice) costs 110,000 yen.
There will also be a reissue of the clubs and gloves from the first collaboration, combining different players with different characters. The four-gloved, 11-bat run is charged at the same price as the second run (165,000 yen for gloves, 110,000 yen for clubs).
Pre-orders start today on Yomiuri Giants online shop, which also stores goods from previous collaborations (Demon Hunter and otherwise). The goods will be shipped from March.
