What anime and manga have you been addicted to lately?
I’m addicted to “鬼滅の刃 kimetsu no yaiba：Demon Slayer”.
The stage took place around 1912, and the story is about fighting a demon, looking for a way to return the younger sister who has become a demon to a human being.
It’s interesting, so if you like, please take a look at the comics and anime.
By the way, in “鬼滅の刃”, the swordsmen of the demon slayer corps use a technique called Breathing Styles.
One of the Breathing Styles is the Water Breathing. In the scene where Tanjirou and Tomioka use the Water Breathing, a chinese dragon is depicted. Chinese dragon is called Ryuu 龍 in Japanese.
Why is Ryuu 龍 drawn?
Because Ryuu 龍 is an imaginary beast of ancient China and the water god who does the rain, so Ryuu 龍 is in a place related to water like this.
Ryuu 龍 also appear in other anime.
For example, Haku of “千と千尋の神隠し sen to chihiro no kamikakushi：Spirited Away”. Haku’s identity was the god of the river. So, he has the appearance of Ryuu 龍.
“天気の子 tenki no ko：Weathering With You” also comes out with Ryuu 龍 in a scene related to rain.
If you learn about Japanese culture in this way, you may be able to enjoy Japanese manga and anime more.
