Demon Slayer It’s one of the biggest franchises in Japan, and it’s only getting better day by day. If you didn’t know, the show’s debut anime drew millions of fans to Tanjiro, and Kimetsu no Yaiba cemented his legendary status once his film dominated the global box office.
But now, it seems that a number of startling complaints have been filed against the top-performing film. It all fell apart when Fuji TV brought to Kimetsu no Yaiba –Mugen Train to television. The cable network hosted a new viewing of the anime before its second season.
Of course, this culminated in the film’s web premiere, but the Japan Broadcasting Ethics and Program Improvement Organization got involved in complaints about the screening. Next, The Truth News It shares everything you need to know to watch the anime and the topic about the alleged complaints.
Kimetsu no Yaiba accused of excessive violence
As pointed out SoraNews24, the watchdog organization received a lots of complaints about the movie. This time around, it appears that innocent members of the audience were drawn to the violence in the movie Mugen Train:
“There are too many scenes of bloodshed and cruelty,” complained an anonymous writer. “I was incredibly uncomfortable with the grotesque depictions of people being eaten, an arm ripped off, and other terrible acts of violence,” wrote another.
At this time, the BPO had not named Kimetsu no Yaiba in this case, but rather described the offensive show as “the primetime broadcast of an anime job with a famous movie.”
When you look at the time period of the complaints, the only thing that fits this bill is Kimetsu no Yaiba, so it didn’t take long for fans to figure it out. As such, the BPO Youth Committee issued a statement in light of the complaints.
The organization assured fans that the film’s content met the cable’s criteria, but as always, audiences should use their discretion when it comes to a movie.
“The popularity of the series and the film suggests that its content has been deemed acceptable. Furthermore, the concept of voluntary viewer discretion while watching is widely understood and accepted,” the group shared in a statement.
Now, Demon Slayer has moved to greener pastures as its second season has begun. The show brought its premiere to television last weekend with Kyojuro Rengoku’s new ability.
Hopefully season two will eliminate this little problem, but fans better be careful! The first arc of the season is re-adapting the story of the Mugen Train in all its brutality!
When is Demon Slayer 2 released?
Demon Slayer season 2 will arrive in October with a new version of Mugen Train and the episodes that adapt the Arch of the Entertainment District (also known as the Red Light District) will premiere on December 5, 2021 on Crunchyroll.
