Demon Slayer: Experience Rengoku vs Akaza Firsthand with This VR Clip

Technology is often as much of a blessing as it is a curse. As companies continue to push tech to new boundaries, fans are taking that progress and making things that flaunt their fandom. The advent of virtual reality consoles has only upped the ante in that respect, and now, one Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba fan has used that tech to help fans experience Rengoku’s best fight firsthand.

Just, without all of the pain and suffering. As much as we wish we could be Rengoku, few would want to experience the trials he went through against Akaza, but this new clip gives Demon Slayer fans an idea of how the battle happened.

Over on Youtube, the fan comickey got fans buzzing when they uploaded their pet project. The netizen posted a clip they made using Blender that gives a new take on Rengoku vs Akaza. The 3D scene brings the battle to life with lots of modeling, and it allows viewers with VR headsets to experience the thing in the first person.

As you can see above, the Demon Slayer clip itself is fast-paced as Rengoku and Akaza fight head-on. The hashira is shown throwing out flame techniques while Akaza comes back with brutal hand-to-hand combat. Despite its home-brew status, this recreation is impressive to say the least, and fans are now wondering which other anime showdowns need to be recreated in VR.

After all, the shonen genre does have lots of battles to choose from. It goes without saying that Naruto vs Sasuke would be a must-have for fans, and there are others beyond the rivals. Any number of battles from One Piece or Bleach would be sickening in VR. So now that Demon Slayer has broken the mold, it’s time the fandom gets cracking on some new POV projects.
