Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba topped the charts as one of the best anime of 2019 due to its thrilling plot and top-notch animation. The manga too made it to the list of best selling manga series of all time.
With the success pouring in from the previous season, the creators are releasing a new season this year. The characters in the series are also greatly loved by fans, and Nezuko Kamado is undoubtedly one of their favourites. Let’s take a look at why she is so lovable.
What to know about the Anime
The story follows Tanjiro Kamado whose family is slaughtered by a demon. His sister Nezuko turns into a demon but surprisingly shows signs of being a human. Tanjiro vows to turn her back and avenge the deaths of his family.
The two become involved with the Demon Slayer Corps as they continue their quest to seek a cure to Nezuko’s demon curse. The Corps has been waging a war against demons for centuries.
Why is Nezuko so lovable even though she’s a demon?
Throughout the show, Nezuko is greatly gentle and affectionate, unlike other demons who are hostile and vicious. This goes on to show that although she has turned into a demon, she still maintains human emotions and feelings. This heightens the belief in Sakonji that Tanjiro will discover a way to restore her.
For Nezuko, protecting her fellow humans is her utmost priority, so she resists strongly not to feed on humans. She wears a bamboo gag to control her urge and also fights off all aggressive habits. While other demons devour humans to sustain, Nezuko takes long naps instead to recover her strength.
Her cute appearance is something fans just can’t get enough of. But don’t let it fool you, as she is unexpectedly fearless. She rushes immediately and challenges anyone who poses a threat to his brother and people. We can definitely see why Nezuko is a fan favourite!
