Knowing the content they'll adapt in the first episode, this PV just added a bit more hype to it.

Absolute W.

Man with a mission are incredible. Also the voice actor choices for the upper moons are great. Byakuyas va for Kokushibo is honestly perfect, although Hayami Show would've been dope as well.

Since Kenjiro Tsuda is in practically everything I definitely thought he would have voiced Kokushibo, but Byakuya's VA is  a great choice as well. 
No one hates anime more than anime fans.

Very good picks. That's how I imagined these characters to sound like.

It's so cool that Kokushibo is voiced be the dane VA that also voiced Gemini Saga from Saint Seiya.

While Kenjiro Tsuda was my dream pick for Kokushibo's voice in the anime adaptation, I'm not gonna lie - back when I was reading the manga I imagined Koku to sound more like Ryotaro Okiayu than Kenjiro Tsuda.

Trivia about KNY for seiyuus

1. Before that, Hantengu and Douma are enemy in Dragon Ball Super, Superhero the movie (Piccolo vs Gamma 2), and this time, they're allies of upper 6
2. Kokushibo is Byakuya Kuchiki. Imagine that Inosuke meet him in battle, it means we can see rematch about Byakuya vs As Nodt from Bleach 1000 Years of Blood War 
3. It will be a reunion of Uta no Prince Sama casts, (mostly are from STARISH) such as Douma, Daki, Zenitsu, Gyomei, Kyogai, Temple Demon & Swamp Demon
4. It will be a reunion of Dai no Daibouken casts, such as Dai, Maam, Soala, Leona, Avan, Hyunckel, Nova, Hadlr, Vearn & Myst Vearn, Larhalt, Galdandy, and Hym
5. It will be a reunion of MHA casts, such as Deku, Bakugo, Todoroki brothers (Shouto & Dabi), Endeavor, Tsuyu, Fumikage, Yosetsu, Eraserhead, Best Jeanist, Nighteye, Tomura, Skeptic, Lady Nagant, Wolfram, David Shield (young), Serpenters, Mummy, & Sisicross

I was clicking the link while thinking “don't tell me it's LiSA again” but I'm so excited to know it's MAN WITH A MISSION and Milet!

They did one Collab before in the song Reiwa, didn't expect them to Collab again for Kimetsu no Yaiba.

People here expected TsudaKen, people elsewhere expected Madara's seiyuu (the main one).

And imo, if TsudaKen was to be Kokushibou, then Yoriichi's VA should've  been also different due to obvious reasons.

I have to remind y'all, though, that TsudaKen was recently 'in the news' with his private life matters, so it might be not that suprising.

And imo, if TsudaKen was to be Kokushibou, then Yoriichi's VA should've  been also different due to obvious reasons.
What was he in the news for?

I thought it was him that had a situation that he lives with a lover for years instead of the wife and all that, but I after checking - I misremembered, it was Takahiro Sakurai. (In fact, he had two lovers)

Sorry for confusion, I stand corrected.
