LiSA is likely to perform the Demon Slayer theme song at the 71st Kohaku Utahime Gassen.
Touted as one of the world’s most popular series, Demon Slayer revolves around a teenage boy Tanjiro, who begins a quest to fight demons in a bid to save his sister. Everything Tanjiro touches including, manga and movie tickets, turns into platinum, and that goes for the anime’s theme song as well.
LiSA, who has earned notable awards for her work on the anime, is slated to perform the Demon Slayer theme song at a New Year’s Festival soon. The report comes from NHK, a national network that is aired in Japan.

According to the company, the Japanese pop singer has been roped in to perform at the 71st Kohaku Utahime Gassen, which alludes to an annual New Year’s Even program featuring some of the most popular overseas singers. LiSA will be performing a special medley sourced from Demon Slayer, meaning, fans can expect to hear “Gurenge.”
LiSA made her comeback this fall to Demon Slayer for the anime’s first movie. It featured the single “Homura” from LiSA as a title track for Mugen Train. She is expected to perform both these songs in her medley, with fans from across Japan tuning in to see the performance.
Last year turned out to be a great year for Demon Slayer, considering its all-out success at the box office. It will be interesting to see what Tanjior will accomplish in 2021 with the coronavirus pandemic likely to play itself out.
Aside from LiSA, there will be other pop artists gracing the holiday program. Kiyoshi Hikawa might return to the event for the second year running in a bid to honor Dragon Ball Super. The singer will perform “Genkai Toppa x Survivor” once again to honor Goku and the gang.
