Kimetsu no Yaiba, also known as Demon Slayer, prepares for the arrival of the second season of the anime. As planned, Fuji TV, the channel that has the rights in Japan, has offered some details about this new batch of episodes (Entertainment District Arc) at a press conference. One of the most important news is that content will remain unchanged, which means that they will not opt for censorship to make the product more familiar. This was stated by Yuriko Nakamura, Fuji TV’s head of programming.
“The content will be issued without changes,” he said. The truth is that this second season is set in the Yoshiwara area, a district of Tokyo known for being a nerve center where prostitution developed until its ban in 1958. Since the new episodes were announced, the debate has continued in the Japanese press and television programs. They wondered if the anime would faithfully adapt the events of the manga or if they would choose, on the contrary, to lower the tone to make it more familiar.

This story arc will be analyzed according to the “usual review” procedures within the channel, “but the content will be broadcast without any change,” Nakamura stressed. He has further explained that this decision has been made taking into account the chosen schedule to broadcast the second season. As he has commented, they are striving to “fulfill” their role as a television channel.
