Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba has been super popular recently, especially after the new Demon Slayer the Movie: Infinity Train film made its theatrical debut back in October. In November, a Japanese photographer made his son and a few other kids cosplay the Demon Slayer series. The pint-sized cosplayers immediately went viral and netizens couldn’t help but gush over the photos.

Last month, a Japanese photographer, going by the Instagram handle @shigatsu0926, posted professionally taken and edited photos of his son and a few other children cosplaying characters from the Demon Slayer series. 

These photos were circulated online and the hearts of netizens melted at the sight of the children cutely dressed up as characters such as Tanjiro, Zenitsu, and Inosuke.
