Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 2 was decidedly different from the first season as it followed the young heroes to a darker side of Japan. Needless to say, a story set in the Yoshiwara red-light district would be all about violence and a lot of bare skin, thanks to the demon Daki and Tengen Uzui's three wives. So it's no surprise that China has decided to give the women a major makeover to censor all that flesh.

It has already been reported that Demon Slayer Season 2 would be censored in China. Although fans were expecting that the censorship would cover the violence depicted in the anime, it was used mostly to cover up the women's exposed bosoms in the second season.

We previously saw how Daki was covered up in the scenes where she goes up against Tanjiro Kamado. However, a recent post confirms that Uzui's wives were given completely new outfits that effectively covered up their cleavage. It's a bigger effort compared to what was done to Daki who was just given a top with a higher neckline and matching shorts.

But what could this mean for the anime's future? Demon Slayer Season 3 has already been confirmed to adapt the manga's Swordsmith Village arc. In this particular story arc, a certain scene featuring the Love Hashira Mitsuri Kanroji at the hot springs could once again require major censorship. However, it is believed that the scene might not be featured in the anime considering that it features a lot of nudity by the character. Still, fans should be ready for the third season.

For now, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 3 has not yet been given an official release date. However, there are speculations that the series will return sometime in Winter 2023. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
