While the US is currently undergoing its own overwhelming demand for McDonald’s Happy Meal sets thanks to special Pokémon cards, it seems McDonald’s Japan also wants to run out of Happy Meal gifts, announcing today that Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba will be coming to the fast-food chain on March 5.
Each Happy Meal set comes with one sticker set and another toy that isn’t Demon Slayer related. The sticker sets feature Tanijro as a crew member, Nezuko as a hospitality leader (also known as a guest experience lead), Zenitsu as a McCafe barista, Inosuke as a delivery driver, and Giyu and Shinobu as managers. Very fitting jobs for each of them if you ask me! The stickers also feature various scenes from the anime and other characters.

McDonald’s Japan teased the announcement in a Twitter post before it was fully announced, which when it was announced, became trending topics in Japan, amassing more than 33.6 thousand Twitter in just a few short hours.
The Demon Slayer happy meal starts on March 5 alongside a Tropical-Rouge! Precure set across Japan.
