Chinese computer giant Lenovo has revealed that it will be giving away an anime-inspired gaming chair as part of a promotional lottery event. The company detailed the colorful seat on its website, which confirmed that it’d come equipped with something pretty peculiar: a replica katana based on the one held by Giyu Tomioka, one of the major supporting characters from popular Japanese manga and anime series Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. Note that the katana is not real; the blade is not removable.

“For those who follow Lenovo Japan’s official Twitter account (@LenovoJP_DO) and retweeted campaign tweets, five people will be selected to receive a specially designed ‘Lenovo Full Concentration Chair,'” a rough translation of the entry process reads. The campaign for Lenovo’s samurai sword gaming chair will run until March 31 and is presumably exclusive to Japanese residents.

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is a manga series created by Koyoharu Gotoge, now published as JUMP COMICS imprints by SHUEISHA,” a description on the official site reads. “Since it first appeared in Volume 11 of Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 2016, it has captivated the hearts and minds of fans worldwide with its tragic tale of humans versus demons, intense sword fighting, and sometimes even comical depictions of characters. Nothing short of a cultural phenomenon, the series has sold over 80 million copies. Demon Slayer has created an epic universe with its unparalleled storytelling, and the series has firmly established itself as a modern classic in the shonen manga genre.”
