Expectations with the second season of ‘Demon Slayer’ are still very high, the bad thing is that its audience was very low during the first half and, now, there is criticism for the objectification of women.
The Ufotable studio took all precautions prior to the premiere of the second season of Demon Slayer, scheduled it minutes before midnight on Sundays so as not to censor the content of the Red Light District arc and warned fans that the first half would recap the arc. from the Infinity Train, as seen in Demon Slayer: Mugen Train The Movie, and still has had quite a few audience issues in Japan and other parts of the world.
Time relocation had to do with the content of this part of the manga, donde Tanjiro, Nezuko, Inosuke y Zenitsu they dress up as women to infiltrate a prostitution ring supervised by the demons Daki and Gyutaro, two of the main targets of the Tengen Uzui pillar of sound and whose adventure just began last Sunday with the premiere of a chapter of almost an hour.
The new stage of the anime, again, that of the Infinity Train, promised fans unpublished scenes and new techniques by Kyojuro Rengoku, the pillar of fire, however, it was not enough. As the weekends progressed, audience was in total decline. Japanese television registered a rating of 10 points in the debut of the first chapter, for the fifth fell by more than 50 percent. To the japs already They were disinterested to see what has already been told. And there wasn’t much of a buzz on Crunchyroll or Funimation on the international level, either.

What’s more, we dare to say that it went unnoticed by the platforms. There was more noise for the premiere of Platinum End, the thousandth episode of One Piece and the novelty of The World’s Finnest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in Another World as an AristocratWhat a short little name! Ufotable was urged to introduce the arc of entertainment, a translation that caused confusion among the Asian population, since lthe kanji of the manga should actually refer to something similar to the brothel district.
The study, despite changing the schedule, knows that children have access to platforms, are consumers of anime and modified the title a little to avoid major problems with parents. The same, red light district, is understandable for any adult. That was not the thing, after four months of training and recovery after the encounter with the upper moon Akaza and the murder of the pillar of fire, the shortlist of heroes and Nezuko meet Tengen Uzui.
The pillar takes as guinea pigs three assistants of the Butterfly Mansion, owned by Kanae and Shinobu Kocho, pillar of the flower and insect, respectively. One of them, Aoi Kanzaki, received a carefree spanking from Tengen and raised the ire of several onlookers. They considered the fact degrading and sexist. This scene is also part of the manga and never caused outrage, letting us know that the story is better known from the anime than from its original source.
In Japan there was a lot of criticism towards this scene. The pillar of sound, a man who also claims to have three wives, was singled out as a sexual harasser, objectifier, abuser, jerk and little empathic with girls. “I threw up when the main character appeared. Everything was fine until he spanked Aoi.Perhaps the producers promote discrimination against women? I think they are trying to disturb feminists. A complaint, in fact, “wrote on Twitter by a user who deleted the comment and blocked her account for receiving attacks from fans.

Not satisfied with the comment, it was followed by an indication of the nature of the pillar. Uzui is married to Makio, Hinatsuru and Suma, an evidently polygamous relationship.. This did not please the viewers either, as they consider it another type of gender violence and an inappropriate message towards the young people who see the cartoon, since they believe that they might see women as an easy object to accumulate and dispose of.
This protest has also been the target of attacks by otakus, both men and women who know the culture of comics and Japanese animation, have countered these points in social networksScenes that are quite normal and represent the fantasies of Japanese writers, whose culture promotes respect for others and vent any type of behavior that is frowned upon by other means. We’ll see if the rest of the episodes continue to pull Tengen Uzui and catch the wave with what they are about to witness in Demon Slayer.
