The Tokyo Olympics has begun and the sporting event appears to be greatly influenced by the culture of Japan. An Olympic gymnast has just performed an amazing routine set to the exciting soundtrack of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba.
There is little doubt that the Demon Slayer soundtrack has some of the most riveting music in an anime. The themes range from poignant to exciting so it's no surprise that people are filled with emotions when they hear the music. With that in mind, one particular theme turned out to be perfect for a gymnastic routine.
The awesome routine was performed by Mexican gymnast Alexa Moreno for the qualifying round of the women's floor event. For her performance, Moreno chose a snippet from the theme Demon Slaying Corps which appeared in Episode 17 of the anime's first season.

Moreno certainly nailed it and the judges agree. The athlete was given a combined score of 12.333. Hopefully, her next routine will feature the entire theme from Demon Slayer.
It's great to see that Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba had somehow shown up in the Tokyo Olympics. After all, the manga and anime have been a huge success in Japan as well as around the world. Most recently, the anime film Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train was declared the highest-grossing film of 2020 as well as the highest-grossing anime and Japanese film of all time.
The Tokyo Olympics is ongoing right now. Meanwhile, Demon Slayer Season 2 is expected to premiere sometime in October 2021.
