Demon Slayer voice actor Aleks Le has provided fans with an update to his safety after he was involved in a serious car collision.

Le first worried supporters when he posted an image on Twitter to show that he was attending Anime Impulse 2020 in Los Angeles, California on January 19, but it wasn’t the photograph that concerned people – it was the caption.

“Got into a pretty bad car accident but hey I made it here to Day 2 of #ANIMEimpulse2020!” it read. “So come down to Hall 9, table 9521 to get a pic or autograph before I pass out.”

Upon noticing that fans were anxious over his well being, the voice actor followed up with a second tweet, this time showing the aftermath of the accident with a photograph of his car.

The front of the vehicle was completely destroyed, with the damaged parts spilled out all over the road, and the hood hanging on by a thread.

“Was a bit jokey with my last tweet but this morning really did suck a**. Good thing there were witnesses so I’m not at fault,” he said. “The pain is kicking in now. Just happy to be alive [to be honest].”

Fellow anime voice actor Billy Kametz responded to the update with concern, and said, “Holy s**t dude! Glad your ok man! That looks scary as hell!”

“Certainly was pretty scary,” Le replied, before revealing that thankfully, nobody got hurt in the ordeal. “First thing I did was rush to the other car to see if they were okay. Luckily nobody got hurt.”

Aleks voices Zenitsu Agatsuma in the English Demon Slayer dub – a character who is petrified of literally everything when awake and conscious, but turns into a bloodthirsty killer when passed out.

Demon Slayer was voted as the best anime of 2019 by Ranker, as its story of tragedy, heartbreak, and bloodshed has connected with millions across the world.

In another shot posted to social media, the cosplayer gave viewers a better look at all the details that went into creating her One Piece costume. She even drew letters on the back of her fingers to spell out ‘DEATH’ to mimic his hand tattoo.

Channeling the cutthroat’s personality, she grabs the tip of her fur cap while holding their weapon by her side. This is easily one of the best takes we’ve ever seen of the Heart Pirate.
