Even though “demon slayer”, also known as “Kimetsu no Yaiba”, is one of the most popular anime at the moment, not all reviews are positive, even fans of Tanjirō Kamado’s story consider that the program has made some mistakes.
The problems of the adaptation of the manga created by Koyoharu Gotouge range from poor decisions in the animation department to script failures and setbacks in character development.
THE TIMES “DEMON SLAYER” HAS DISAPPOINTED ITS FANS
6. Nezuko’s sexualization
The Entertainment District Arc, Nezuko confronts Daki and during the fight she transforms into a demon and attempts to attack a human. Happily, Tanjiro manages to stop her. The drawback with this scene is that the illustrators sexualized the protagonist’s younger sister.
Although Nezuko is still a child when she assumes her demonic form, she appears much older and her kimono reveals her cleavage.
5. The death of important characters
After fans of “demon slayer” became fond of Flame Hashira, Kyojuro Rengoku, the creators decided that it was time to close his story, so he died at the hands of the three higher ranked demons, which disappointed many. Especially since they hoped it would teach Tanjiro more about solar breathing.
4. Nezuko’s lack of prominence
Even though Nezuko is one of the main characters in “Kimetsu no Yaiba”, his screen time is reduced. She was asleep for much of the first season, in “Mugen Train” she did not contribute to the plot of the arc, and in the second installment, she fought Daki, but did not kill her.
3. The roles of Zenitsu and Inosuke
Inosuke Hashibira and Zenitse Agastuma are powerful demon slayers, but are often portrayed simply as comic relief in the popular anime. In both the Mugen Train Arc and Entertainment District Arcs, Zenitsu has little screen time or is asleep.
Whereas, Inosuke plays a bigger role, but he makes the same pranks and follows the same strategies. There is no deep character development.
2. The image of the Hashira
Although the Hashira can lead the Demon Slayer Corps against demons, not all of them are kind and compassionate. Some are even cruel and insensitive. For example, Sanemi Shinazugawa and Shinobu Kocho enjoy seeing the pain of others.
1. Too many tragic stories
Tanjiro lost his family to a demon, who also turned his younger sister Nezuko into a demon. Likewise, the protagonist of “Demon Slayer” saw Rengoku die, who had an abusive father who never recognized him.
