Demon Slayer has become one of the most popular anime series in the world, and one talented fan has shown how much she loves the show and its characters with an incredible cosplay that sees her transform into Nezuko Kamado. 

Since it’s 2019 debut, Demon Slayer has captured the hearts and minds of audiences worldwide, eager to follow the story of Tanjiro, a young man who goes on a quest to seek revenge after his family were brutally murdered by the creatures, before turning his sister Nezuko into one of them.

Desperate to find a way to turn his sister back to her fully human form, Tanjiro joins the Demon Corps, vowing to kill any demons he finds on his journey. While Tanjiro may be the show’s main character, Nezuko has quickly become a fan-favorite, and her unique look makes her a perfect cosplay like this one from Instagram user mickysibille.

April has become the latest Demon Slayer fan to show off their incredible cosplay of the character, showing off a look that could be lifted directly off the screen thanks to its amazing detail and accuracy.

The thing that makes Nekuzo so recognizable is easily the bamboo gag she wears around her neck, which is often found in her mouth. While this may look a little odd, it serves an important purpose, as she bites down on it when she gets the urge to kill humans, stopping her from tearing into the people around her and proving that there is still some humanity left inside her.

Nekuzo’s outfit is also perfect, including her pink and white robes, paired with a green belt that sits around her waist. Even her hair is perfect falling down across her shoulders, with the same pink ribbon on the right side of her head that the character always wears.

Demon Slayer originally started as a manga back in 2016, but nobody could have foreseen the smash hit it would become when the anime released in 2019. The series proved so popular with fans, that Ufotable confirmed that they would be producing a film in 2020 to continue the story.

For those who have yet to see the show, and are struggling to understand the hype behind it, you can catch the first season in its entirety on Crunchyroll or Funimation.

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.
