Has Nezuko been over-sexualized in the anime, according to Kimetsu no Yaiba fans?

Season 2 of The Night's Watch (Kimetsu no Yaiba), one of the best current anime series whose manga was included among the top 30 best sellers in 2021, debuted on Crunchyroll lately.


However, the topic has resurfaced in the most recent episode of Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 2, in which fans of the anime believe they have sexualized Nezuko, Tanjiro's lovely demon sister.


Attention! There will be SPOILERS for Kimetsu no Yaiba season 2 after that, so if you aren't following up with the anime or manga, don't read any further.


Nezuko screams in rage and rushes to her brother's help in an episode of the Night's Watch series, releasing great strength and morphing into an elder version.


This means that, unlike what we've seen before, Nezuko develops her feminine characteristics, most notably revealing her breasts (something very common in the female characters of the manganime, on the other hand).


However, few fans have expressed their displeasure on social media after witnessing this adult version of Nezuko, owing to the anime's creators' increased sexualization of the character. We've included a picture of the character below.

Is it, however, really that bad? Because she is a more mature version of the character, it is only natural that her breasts are seen. In this scenario, a lot of gutter is visible through his yukata, which may be seen as a deliberate attempt to sexualize the figure.


However, if we look at the manga, we can see that mangaka Koyoharu Gotge did an excellent job of capturing it, therefore the dispute about Nezuko's purported sexualization isn't as awful as it seems. Take a peek at the images below.

Given that many anime fans have never read the manga, it's unsurprising that they were taken aback by Nezuko's drastic transformation. Although, to break a spear in favor of the fans, several scenes in the anime do appear to sexualize the character more, such as in a shot showing a close-up of Nezuko's "breasts."
