Mystery Man in Japan Naming Himself as ‘Inosuke’ Donated Masks and Alcohol to Nursing Home

Anime News

People have their own ways to help out those in need especially in the current Coronavirus pandemic. In Japan, it was reported that a man naming himself after the popular Demon Slayer character Inosuke Hashibara donated 100 pieces of masks and alcohol disinfected to a nursing school located in the Iwate Prefecture. He generously made these donations after finding out that the nursing home is now on a shortage of these important items.

In the recent report by Nippon TV, it was said that the man has bought the masks and the alcohol himself. Upon giving the said items, he handed a short letter that says, “I am grateful to all doctors every day. Thank you very much. -Inosuke Hashibara.”

Inosuke Hashibara is a character in the Demon Slayer franchise notable for wearing a boar’s head. Although very hot-blooded at times, his motto has always been to help other regardless of who they are in life.

Demon Slayer is a popular shonen manga series written by Koyoharu Gotoge. It was first released in February 2016 in Weekly Shonen Jump and still ongoing. 16 compiled volumes have been released so far in Japan. The manga is released officially in English by VIZ Media.

The anime adaptation of the series premiered in April 6, 2019 with animation done by Ufotable, notable for their productions of the animated adaptations of the Fate franchise.

A summary of the manga series is found below:

“ Since ancient times, rumors have abounded of man-eating demons lurking in the woods. Because of this, the local townsfolk never venture outside at night. Legend has it that a demon slayer also roams the night, hunting down these bloodthirsty demons. For young Tanjiro, these rumors will soon to become his harsh reality. Ever since the death of his father, Tanjiro has taken it upon himself to support his family. Although their lives may be hardened by tragedy, they’ve found happiness. But that ephemeral warmth is shattered one day when Tanjiro finds his family slaughtered and the lone survivor, his sister Nezuko, turned into a demon. To his surprise, however, Nezuko still shows signs of human emotion and thought. Thus begins Tanjiro’s request to fight demons and turn his sister human again.”
