Japan-based voice-acting entertainment company Across Entertainment recently announced that ‘Demon Slayer’ voice actor Natsuki Hanae has been doing some self-isolation as of late after being in close contact with a Covid-19-positive staff member. The result for the said staff member arrived on Friday after a routine PCR test.  

Event postponed  

This resulted in the agency bogging down the “The Duke of Death and His Maid” anime event that is slated this coming Saturday, January 22. Hanae – who is also the voice actor for the character Tanjirō Kamado in the hit anime series “Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba” which is currently on its Entertainment District Arc – was supposed to attend the said event, Anime News Network reports.
