A little more fabric

It was Shonenleaks who informed us of the strange change of dress of the three women of Tengen. In one image, we see the young women in their usual attire: a very low-cut, sleeveless bustier. On the other hand, on another image, we see that the clothes are no longer the same. They wear a kind of sweaters, which completely cover the upper body and their arms. Chinese authorities’ censorship of foreign works is nothing new. It most often intervenes for moral reasons. Even if the Chinese public is accustomed to it, it does not fail to be surprising.

Three wives for one husband

Suma, Hinatsuru, and Makio are the three wives Tengen received from his clan. Although they were raised as shinobi, their husband cares deeply for them. So when they disappear, he will take the initiative to infiltrate the pleasure district. The Pillar of Sound suspected that within this district lurked demons, even demonic moons. Although his flair did not deceive him, he regretted having asked them to spy for him. With the help of Tanjiro, Zenitsu, and Inosuke, the Pillar managed to track them down before Daki got the better of them. However, they were able to show courage and perseverance by supporting him during the fight, and by participating in the evacuation of the district before its destruction.

On the way to season 3

While waiting for season 2 and its share of censorship to end in China, season 3 of Demon Slayer is already underway at ufotable. The studio will have to adapt one of the future major arcs of the series. In this chapter, new demonic moons as well as pillars will intervene. Although Koyoharu Gotouge has already completed his work, we are still far from the end of the adventure of Tanjiro and Nezuko.
