Kimetsu No Yaiba: this is why Nekuzo has a bamboo branch

Nezuko is the demon who stars in Demon Slayer along with her brother Tanjiro.

Nezuko is the co-star of Demon Slayer.

Demon Slayer is to this day one of the most popular anime in the industrywhile the series starring Tanjiro, Nezuko and their fellow demon hunters has managed to dazzle millions thanks to an animation that leaves more than one speechless, while with the premiere of season 2 this year we could see that the match against Gyutaro was even better than seen in the moviewhich is saying enough.

Be that as it may, in this case we are going to focus on Nezuko, the protagonist’s sister and the devil who is on the side of thesesince, after all, in the anime we have been able to see that this was the only survivor of Muzan’s attack on Tanjiro’s family, leading this to the fact that his mission throughout the series is end the murderer of his familyas well as find a cure for his sister to become human again.

Nezuko has various reasons for carrying the bamboo branch in her mouth.

Be that as it may, one of Nezuko’s characteristics throughout the manga and anime has been the fact that carries a bamboo branch in its mouthbeing this its most identifying element and about which a lot has been said, since it is not a mere decorative muzzlebut rather has some pretty deep functionality, as this branch allows you to you control his demon impulses when it comes to devouring other humans.

In this way, the bamboo muzzle prevents it from eating other humans at the same time that it also prevents her from biting herself, either consciously or accidentally, although it must be said that this does not make bamboo have magical propertiesRather, the ability to resist this urge is attributed more to Nezuko’s will.

On the other hand, we cannot ignore the fact that bamboo also hides its demon traitswhich helps people not to be terrified when they see it, this being something that could affect the character on the psychological level. Be that as it may, it remains to be seen how the character evolves in the next arcs of Kimetsu No Yaiba, especially now that the third season is confirmed.
