Zach Aguilar's
Connection To
Demon Slayer Is
Really No Surprise
One of the biggest anime franchises in the world, “Demon Slayer" follows young Tanjiro, as he journeys to destroy the demons who killed his family and cure his possessed sister Nezuko. Zach Aguilar voices Tanjiro in the English dub of "Demon Slayer,'' and the actor has his own connections with the world of voice acting that go all the way back to his childhood.
During an interview with The Gamer, Aguilar discussed playing Tanjiro, as well as video games. "I've played video games since I was a kid, and that includes anime-based fighting games similar to 'Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles,'" Aguilar explained. "Having that understanding of the genre helped solidify my understanding of how to approach voice acting."
It makes sense that these experiences from Aguilar's youth have had such a significant impact on how he voices the characters that he portrays. "I pull a lot of my style of acting for 'Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba' in general from my childhood," said Aguilar. "Growing up with popular anime and listening to the performances of the voice actors that worked on those shows."
