Apology for the Demon Slayer TV Anime Series Blu-ray/DVD Vol. 4 Bonus CD Music Track



November 22, 2019
Aniplex Inc.

It has come to our attention that Azaan was partially used inappropriately in the bonus CD bundled with the Demon Slayer TV anime series Blu-ray/DVD Vol. 4 (released on October 30, 2019). This track was produced using commercially-available audio material, and while it was never our intention to hurt or show disrespect towards those of the Islamic faith, we understand that we have deeply offended them by not taking steps to fully understand the meaning and content of said audio before recording and releasing the track. For this, we offer our sincerest apologies. Please be advised that the track in question appears only on the bonus CD and has not been used in the anime series itself.

Rest assured that we will be taking this matter seriously. We have halted all shipments of this product, which will also be recalled from all stores immediately. For those of you who have purchased this product, we will be offering replacement discs for the bonus CD. Please be advised that we can only provide disc replacements for our customers residing in Japan.

We apologize for inconveniencing those of you who have purchased this product, as well as all of our Demon Slayer fans.

Please be assured that in the future, we will work hard to better understand the Islamic faith and culture, and be extra-vigilant when it comes to audio production.
