SPOILERS FOR DEMON SLAYER SEASON 2 FOLLOW:
The Sound Hashira returns to active duty thanks to professional artist and performer Taryn. The cosplayer perfectly captures Tengen’s muscular physique and flamboyant demeanor in a new set of photographs, which also show off a screen-accurate recreation of Hashira’s costume. The look is completed with a number of small details, including the precise molding of Uzui’s arm guards, the decorative stones that adorn the shinobi’s head guard, and the kanji that is written on the warrior’s unique Nichirin dual cleavers . In one photo, Taryn recreates Tengen’s battle stance during the Entertainment Arc’s final battle, where the Hashira is forced to wield his second blade in his mouth after his left arm is badly injured during his duel with the top rank demon Gyutaro.
More Taryn cosplay can be viewed on their Instagram page. Along with more images from their perspective on Tengen Uzui, their Instagram profile also features photos of their amazing Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure cosplay, which manages to recreate the distinctive line work of Hirohiko Araki’s original art. Taryn has cosplayed a wide variety of characters from other popular shonen anime and manga, including A playRoronoa Zoro’s three-sword warrior, and Jujutsu Kaisenthe antagonist wizard Sukuka Ryomen.
Tengen Uzui was first introduced in demon slayerHashira Reunion arc. Like many other Hashira, Uzui is initially hostile towards the central protagonist Tanjiro Kamado and his younger sister Nezuko, but over the course of the series a mutual respect develops between the sound-wielding warrior and the Kamado siblings. He plays a major role in the events of the Entertainment District arc, where he and his three ninja brides team up with Tanjiro, Zenitsu, Inosuke, and Nezuko to take on two top ranked members of the Kizuki Twelve, Daki and Gyutaro. The arc is one of the most acclaimed parts of the original demon slayer manga, and studio Ufotable’s anime adaptation of the story received additional praise for its spectacular animation and elaborate fight choreography.
