It’s Arigato, not El Gato

The viral El Gato Cat on TikTok is from the Demon slayer sound “Sonido Original”.  TikTok users can hear the character saying to a different character “arigato”, which means “Thankyou” in Japanese.

However, everyone on TikTok was convinced that it sounds like “El Gato” while in reality, it’s “Arigato”. The audio comes from the latest season of Demon Slayer. Now if you don’t know about Demon Slayer, let me help you.

Demon Slayer is a Japanese manga series wherein it narrates the story of a teenager Tanjiro Kamado, who strives to become a demon slayer. It happens after his family gets slaughtered and his sister Nezulo turns into a demon.

In this audio, the character Sumo is thanking Tengen Uzui and can be heard saying “arigato”, meaning thank you. People who are not aware of the audio started a Tiktok trend by sharing a cut-out of a cat with the audio behind it. That’s when they started calling it El Gato Cat.
