Anime Tattoos and My Squeamishness

I’ve talked on my blog before about how I think tattoos are super cool, but I’m terrified to get any. Recently though, there have been many tattoos added to my list of ones I like and I thought I’d share them!

Manga Tattoo Ideas

I really like the above Nishinoya and Maki panels! They’re such powerful moments from the two of them and the poses and art is beautiful.

Small Tattoo Ideas

I’ve seen a few people with Aizawa’s goggles as tattoos, and they’re a nice small tattoo! I also just like Organisation XIII from Kingdom Hearts and think these two designs would be cute small designs.

Sword Tattoo Ideas

Having swords surrounded by flowers going down them is so pretty! It makes for good customisation options too.

My Acrylic Stands!

I have some acrylic stands that I love a lot.

I have:
A cute Giyu and Tanjiro with their swords.
A Megumi and Itadori/Sukuna stand.
A lovely Aizawa acrylic (he was a gift given to me and he’s honestly probably my favourite one).
A Bakugou one (badly photographed by me hahah).
A Shinobu one.
And super cute Tanjiro, Zenitsu and Insouke stands I display as a set (they each are also meant to have an additional little piece that has their name on it in front of their character on the stand but I liked their look without it. Don’t worry though, I’ve kept the pieces in case I change my mind later on!)

Do you have acrylic stands? Any favourites or ones that you want to get?

Why is Nezuko Different from Other Demons?

*Manga spoilers ahead for chapter 126 onwards*

Nezuko is called ‘The Chosen Demon’ because she is able to walk in sunlight. But why is she the only demon to ever exist with an immunity to sunlight?

Well, it’s most likely because of her lineage.

It’s implied throughout the series that Tanjiro and his family are connected to the first Breath of the Sun user, who is also the first ever breath user. They all wear the same earrings, have a similar scar on their forehead and look similar. Plus, someone like Tanjiro with ‘red hair’ with ‘red eyes’ is said to be a ‘child of brightness’ and this is something considered lucky in families that work in fire, and are consistent traits with those who previously had potential to be a Breath of the Sun user.  Because of this connection Nezuko might have a special bodily constitution that allows her to walk in the sun.

However, Nezuko has been burned before by the sun. Why did she only develop this ability as the manga progressed?

Perhaps the reason she can withstand sunlight then is because she protects humans instead of eating them. She got burned in the sun to save Tanjiro, and this act of selflessness and self-sacrifice for her brother is something that has never occurred in another demon – so she might have gained this ability.

Or maybe it’s because she is the only demon to never have consumed human flesh or blood and instead sleeps to restore energy. This would mean that all demons can withstand sunlight, but because of their desire for human flesh and blood they can’t. (How ironic this would be for Muzan.)

Nezuko could be the only demon to not consume human flesh or blood because she is the only known demon who didn’t have a tragic past. Nezuko’s trauma of her family dying occurred when she was turned into a demon, while other demons had something in their past like illness or abusive parents that influenced why Muzan took advantage of them. This difference could be why she maintained human emotions, why she was able to be influenced by Urokodaki during her 2 years of sleep to protect humans, and why could sleep instead of eating humans. Leading to her gaining the ability to walk in the sun.

Does anyone have any of their own theories as to why Nezuko can withstand sunlight? What theory makes the most sense to you?
