There’s a reason this action-packed anime is loved internationally by people of all ages. If you’re looking for something exciting to do this month, head over to Pavilion Bukit Jalil (Level 2/Pink Zone) to step into an experience like no other!

The “Total Concentration Exhibition in Malaysia,” which opened last month, features different zones that highlight the anime’s settings and characters, plus their Demon Slayer Corps uniforms, Nichirin swords, and techniques. There are also signed illustrations on display and a merchandise corner where you can buy official goods.

Get your tickets, which range from RM40 (persons with disabilities and kids 12 years old and below) to RM50 (13 years old and above), via Ticket2u and choose from three timeslots: 10 AM, 2 PM, and 6 PM.
