"The animated film of Kimetsu no Yaiba has its premiere scheduled for the month of December in the cinemas of South Korea, and although it sounds great, in reality that country has strict regulations regarding censorship," he concluded.

It should be noted that in Japan there are not as many restrictions regarding content, and in Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, there was a correction darkening part of Jotaro's face when he was shown smoking. Not because of the act itself, but because the character was 17 years old and, being a minor, the restrictions were applied.
