It is already common knowledge that anime series take time to reach China through official means due to the fact that they have to undergo some controls according to the current law. One of the best known is the one that prohibits the exhibition of breasts and any other erotic representation within a series, and Kimetsu no Yaiba: Yuukaku-hen could not be the exception. We previously discussed how the design of the Upper Sixth Moon, Daki, had been altered to display less flesh, with the addition of shorts and a sports bra. On this occasion she talks about other characters who also used to wear quite revealing outfits that left their curves and attributes in full view: the wives of the Pillar of Sound, Tengen Uzuinamely, Addition, Makio Y Hinatsuru. His attire as a kunoichi leaves much of her breasts exposed, so the correction in China was to further close the gap, although the size was left intact.
To start, let’s review what the outfits look like in the original version of the series.
Now let’s see what the version issued in China looks like, specifically through Bilibili, which exhibits the changes already mentioned previously.
By the way, it is likely that you have seen the following image and believed that this had been the censorship. If so, we’re sorry to say that you “ate a bait”, since it’s just an edit made to exaggerate the actual censorship.
The above is quite clear when looking at another frame from the broadcast in China:
This second season premiered on December 5 in Japan and had a total of eleven episodes (practically twelve, given that the first lasted one hour), while the platforms Crunchyroll Y Funimation are responsible for its distribution in Latin America. It should be remembered that the video game for smartphones Kimetsu no Yaiba: Chifuu Kengeki Royale will be available in the catalog QooApp coming soon in this link.
Synopsis for Kimetsu no Yaiba: Yuukaku-hen
The devastation of the Mugen Train incident still weighs heavily on the members of the Demon Slayer Corps. Although they have been given time to recover, life must go on as the wicked never sleep: a vicious demon is terrorizing the seductive women of the Yoshiwara Entertainment District. The Pillar of Sound, Tengen Uzui, and his three wives are on the case. However, when he soon loses contact with his wives, Tengen fears the worst and enlists the help of Tanjirou Kamado, Zenitsu Agatsuma, and Inosuke Hashibira to infiltrate the district’s most prominent houses and track down the depraved senior demon.
