Demon Slayer Season 2 faces censorship from china in a recent broadcast of the recently concluded Entertainment District Arc of the series.

Tengen Uzui’s wife helped to reveal a new layer of the Sound Hashira, Tengen Uzui. The formidable Demon Slayer Corps member became vital in fighting down the demonic siblings known as Daki and Gyutaro in┬áDemon Slayer Season 2.

However, it appears that the television series has been censored in China. This is most notably in regards to the wardrobe of Tengen’s wives.

The Demon Slayer Chinese censorship is real

Tengen’s three wives are Suma, Hinatsuru, and Makio, with one of the most important portions of the Demon Slayer Corps’ mission in the Entertainment District Arc.

The Sound Hashira had to recruit Tanjiro, Zenitsu, and Inosuke to help him save them from a terrible fate. Tengen’s partners may not be as powerful as he is, but they were allowed to show off their talents. They were able to help when they were liberated from their odd prison and assisted the members of the Demon Slayer Corps in one of the series’ toughest confrontations yet.

The three women also showed off a lot of skin. As such, the Chinese broadcast added some alterations to the wives of Tengen Uzui, who assisted in picking up their husband during the struggle against Gyutaro. Tengen lost both an eye and an arm in the fight.

However, there are examples of Demon Slayer fake censorship. For example, Twitter Channel Shonenleaks released supposedly censored images of Demon Slayer that were actually a fan-edited version.

Demon Slayer Season 3 trailer and more

Ufotable keeps working on the famous anime adaptation of the Demon Slayer manga, which has already concluded in Weekly Shonen Jump.

The series’ second season concluded earlier this year after the Entertainment District arc from Koyoharu Gotoge’s classic manga series, and fans were already eager for more.

Thankfully, the third wave of episodes was confirmed to be in the works. It was reported following the second season conclusion that the series will be returning with a full adaptation of the series’ next arc, Demon Slayer Season 3: Swordsmith Village Arc, which pulls in even more Hashira into the story in full.

As part of the anime’s third-anniversary celebrations, Demon Slayer presented the first teaser for the Swordsmith Village arc.  The arc not only revisits prior events but also teases what’s to come! You can see it in full below:

The last scenes of the second season hint that the Upper Ranks are about to make their move. With one of the Upper moons completely beaten, things would take up from there.

The anime’s third season begins what may be termed the second half of the show as a whole, so there are plenty of reasons to be eager for what’s to come. As of this writing, no exact release date or timeframe has been specified.
