A talented Demon Slayer fan has shown off their incredible take on one of anime’s most interesting characters with a perfect take on Kanao Tsuyuri.

Demon Slayer has quickly become one of the most popular animes in the world following its 2019 debut, capturing the imaginations of fans worldwide with the story of Tanjiro Kamado, a young man whose family is murdered by demons, and his sister then turned into one.

Determined to get revenge on the creatures who have ruined his family, and desperate for a way to turn Nezuko back into human form, Kamado joins the Demon Slayers in an attempt to wipe them out once and for all. Along the way, he meets a host of interesting and exciting characters like Kanae and Sinobu Kocho, and their shy adopted sister Kanao Tsuyuri.

Kanao is shy, but a talented warrior who can more than hold her own in combat.

Kanao’s most recognizable personality trait is her shyness, and constantly finds herself unable to make decisions by herself, looking to her sisters to help her when the pressure is on. To help her, Kanae gave her a coin to flip, quickly becoming her trademark, allowing the universe to decide her next move. While she may be shy though, don’t be fulled into thinking she isn’t dangerous, and can more than hold her own when battle commences.

The Demon Slayer wears the characteristic robes that define those who pursue the evil creatures, originally wearing a purple version of the dress before switching to the classic black, sporting her black hair tied into a ponytail, with a straight fringe and two strands falling either side of her face.

Cosplayer ‘miunalie’ captured the character perfectly, complete with the butterfly pin in the perfectly styled hair, and Kanao’s sword, ready to smite down any Demons who may cross her path. This incredible cosplay is so good, it looks like it was lifted straight out of the show, and is surely one of the best Demon Slayer cosplays we’ve ever seen.

Demon Slayer became a smash hit worldwide, but Ufotable has yet to announce when the second season of the anime will release, with fans left anxiously waiting for the next chapter in the story.

There is some good news for those desperate for more Demon Slayer tales, as a special movie titled “Mugen Train” will release in Japan in October 2020, which will act as a bridge between Season 1 and 2.

Dragon Ball fans who have been watching the anime and reading the manga for years were furious after a preview for Chapter 65 showed protagonist Goku making the same mistake he made in the Cell Games years ago.

The Dragon Ball Super manga has been doing its own thing with the anime on hiatus and the Broly movie now a distant memory. Notably, Toyotarou, has taken over as the official artist for Super working with series creator Akira Toriyama.

While the newest arc has been relatively well-received by fans with its new villain, Moro, proving to be quite the adversary, the previews for Chapter 65 have left fans furious.

With Goku now able to tap into his most powerful form in Ultra Instinct on a whim thanks to the sacrifice of his mentor Merus, the Saiyan began dominating the arc’s nemesis.

However, with Moro on the ropes, Goku has repeated a major mistake he made during the Cell Games in Dragon Ball Z – giving the villain a Senzu Bean and healing him. This time, it was under the condition that Moro would turn himself into the Galactic Patrol.

According to translator Dragon Ball Hype, after taking the bean, Moro rushes towards Goku with the intent of killing him.

This is a bit of a retread of the Cell Games where, after retiring from his fight against Cell, Goku gave the android a Senzu Bean to recover before he fought his son, Gohan.

The fact that Goku has made this mistake again and that Toyotarou even wrote the story like this has many fans scratching their heads.

Notable Dragon Ball YouTuber Geekdom101 noted that while he had advised fans to normally wait until the rest of a chapter before passing judgment, this mistake was inexcusable.

“After thinking it over, there’s absolutely no excusing that decision. It’s stupid and illogical and the development is on a hamster wheel. Same old sh*t,” he wrote.

Others are even quitting the series. “I’m officially done with Dragon Ball Super,” a now former fan wrote.

“This arc is ruined now!” another angry fan remarked.

It’s always possible that Toyotarou has thrown fans for a loop and this is all part of some big twist, but for the time being, even the most loyal of Dragon Ball supporters seem to be put off by these story decisions.
