Why Is Demon Slayer Season 2 Being Cancelled by Netizens? Know Here

The amine world is yet again grappling among itself. We know that the community is no stranger to controversy. No matter what scale you are talking about, local, global, cultural, it has this peculiar ability to engage in an aggressive argument online that further turns into a trench of controversy. This time we have Demon Slayer season 2, which has found itself at the center of an argument.

The popular anime series is used to these heated reactions from the fans. However, as we have reached almost halfway into the second season, many moments have been flagged as inappropriate by fans online. Considering that most of the core demographic of the series are underage, not everyone is comfortable with scenes from this series. This has resulted in people canceling Demon Slayer season 2 online.

Why are people canceling Demon Slayer season 2?

To put it in a few words, the creators disappointed people with the character design of Nezuko Kamado in the latest Demon Slayer episodes. Nezuko recently fought Daki in one episode. During that battle, she transformed into what is called the ‘Awakened Demon Form’. In this form, she lost the Bamboo gag, got a single demon horn and vine-like patterns on her skin.

Now the starting point for this controversy is this very transformation. Even though Nezuko gains her adult body in this form, she is still wearing the same small kimono. Understandably, more of her skin is visible now, and according to many people, it is not appropriate. In the anime adaptation, she is 14 or 15 years old in season 2 episode 13.

I’ve taught classes of 9-12 year old girls who all LOVE anime and think Demon Slayer is the coolest thing in the world, & if you think designing female characters like this isn’t sending them a weird message please touch grass. Nezuko is 14, and this s*** is legit harmful.” User ‘PaxLillin,’ wrote on Twitter.

Another user added, “If you sexualize or call nezuko waifu since the new the episode, just know you’re a borderline p****** because she still looks AND SHE IS 14.

People defended the Anime for the whole Nezuko thing

This is a staple in anime culture, whether you want to agree with it or not. Honestly, as I get older a little bit, I start to look at it in a different light, especially if their older people like they probably shouldn’t, but we got to remember that anime nowadays, you can argue is targeted towards older people.” A popular YouTuber ForneverWorld said on YouTube.

    This is ridiculous. First off Demon Slayer is rated MA, people literally get killed, body parts get chopped off, etc. Why are there 9-12 year olds watching this to begin with?

    Secondly, if you have read the source material or paid attention instead of just losing your shit, you would know she actually ages rapidly to her peak power level. Yeah she is 14 but she rapidly ages into an adult to access her full demon abilities.

      to hell with cancelling demon slayer, just put an age rating for it, as the story is clearly meant for older kids, if the kids think its cool or not, i mean you dont show afro samurai to a kid just cause its cool.

    Yeah I feel the same when I was that age my mom would have killed me if I was cought watching anything rated above PG-13. The only reason why people are complaining now is because parents don’t check the ratings on shows or movies before letting Thiers kids watch them. Honestly I feel that the parents should be the ones to suffer for not being more responsible.

    If you let your kids watch anime you need to keep track of what they watch. Simply it the parents to blame. There are all kinds of nasty erotic anime out there. Watch what they are watching. Quit blaming others for your inability to parent. I have 4 kids they dont watch what i dont want them to see.
