QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS: How much do you know about “Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba?

”, the successful series based on the manga, is preparing its third season, but there are things that could be refined, according to an analysis of the portal specializing in comics.

This is said on the basis that Nezuko is possibly the most important character in the series. Her transformation into a demon, after a brutal attack that killed her parents, is the reason why Tanjiro decided to join the Demon Slayer Corps. His goal is to turn his little sister back into a human and so he risks her life fighting demons. However, Nezuko has one big flaw that actually differs from the cause of fighting. Do you know which one is she? Keep reading.


Nezuko Kamado’s biggest flaw, in Demon Slayer, is that it lacks depth of human characterization, notes an article from, a website dedicated to providing coverage of news related to comics. According to the post, while Demon Slayer’s story is mostly about Nezuko, the problem is that she is not an active player in her own life.

The theme of humanity is important in Demon Slayer. It is constantly reinforced that people who become demons still have a part of their humanity within them. However, Nezuko behaves more like a well-trained pet than a real person, which creates a problem in the narrative. She does not speak, she has no will of her own. Tanjiro and others believe that Nezuko is worth saving because she has held on to her humanity, but she has displayed a lower level of human qualities than the demons who have killed dozens of humans. Nezuko is kind to other people and will fight to the death to protect human life, although she does so because she was hypnotized by Urokodaki. Nezuko doesn’t save people of her own volition.

Another problem is the bamboo muzzle, which rather than prevent him from eating humans – something he has shown he can contain – hinders his ability to speak. Sometimes it even seems like he doesn’t even have thoughts.

In terms of participation, Nezuko spends the whole day in the box that Tanjiro carries, even at night, she only goes out to fight, which makes her more of a weapon than a person, since her main interaction with the world is through of combat.

“If he were to change in those ways, humanize himself and have a will of his own, it would make Tanjiro’s goals more meaningful as he would be fighting for a real person that the audience could connect with. That would change Nezuko from a loyal pet or useful weapon to an interesting character with genuine depth.”ends.

In ‘No Matter How Many Times We Reborn’ (2×11), the last episode of the second season of “Kimetsu no Yaiba”, the backstory of the demons was addressed, that is, their lives before receiving Muzan’s blood. In addition, the protagonists had to stop Gyutaro’s poison and the only possible treatment was Nezuko’s anti-demon flames.

With the Upper Rank meeting, several major demons debuted, including Kokushibo. And if you have read the manga, you will know what this meeting meant.


Although not much information has been given, it is considered that the third season of “Demon Slayer” will cover episodes 100-127 of the original manga.

Tanjiro is likely to head to Swordsmith Village to get a new weapon, but it won’t be as easy as it seems as a few demons could spawn in the story.

In addition to the trailer for the third installment, the producers of the anime released the official poster, which also does not give more light on what will be seen in images.
