Buff Nezuko has returned in Buff Nezuko’s Demon Slayer cosplay and this time, a muscle-bound character. This shows that Muzan was not right.
A brand new Demon Slayer cosplay confirms that Buff Nezuko is real.
The latest version of Tanjiro Kamado’s beloved sister was created by co-creator Metalslimer, who accurately describes their appearance as “kawaii and brutal” in their Instagram profile. Buff Nezuko originally appeared in a single panel in Koyoharu Gotouge’s manga, where Tanjiro imagines that Nezuko has suddenly become bigger and stronger than he is and even her chin growing larger. Tanjiro awakes in the wake of his dream to find that his sister isn’t a massive hulking monster. An animated version of Tanjiro’s nightmare was shown in the latest episode of the anime’s second season. Even though he’s only been seen only once, Buff Nezuko has become a well-known meme within the Demon Slayer fandom which has inspired numerous pieces of fan art, and of course, cosplay.
More of Metalslimer’s creative cosplays can be seen on their Instagram profile on which they’ve uploaded photos of their memorable Exorcist costume. The cosplayer also showed their unique take on many comic book characters such as Batman villain Bane as well as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles anti-hero KC Jones. They’ve also cosplayed several other characters, including Ryu from Street Fighter and an unusual take on McDonald’s beloved clown mascot Ronald.
Unfortunately, Buff Nezuko did not make any appearances at this year’s Jump Festa Shueisha’s annual convention that celebrates the Shonen Jump magazine and all of the franchises it was instrumental in launching such as Demon Slayer. Plain Nezuko did appear in a new artwork that was displayed at the event. Buff Nezuko’s creator, Koyoharu Gotouge, also showed his interpretation of the heroines from Bleach in the same way that he joined six other acclaimed manga creators to create artwork for the 20th-anniversary exhibition of Tite Kubo’s classic shonen manga.
