Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba's Natsuki Hanae Shares How He Ended Up Blocked by Official Account
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Natsuki Hanae is the voice behind Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba protagonist Tanjirō, but that didn't save him from getting blocked by the anime's official Twitter account. Hanae shared the humorous story with Hiro Shimono (Zenitsu Agatsuma) on the Kimetsu Radio program. Twitter user Nomi translated the conversation and shared it on Twitter and it has since been retweeted over 6,000 times.
Just wanted to share a translation of KimetsuRadio (because it was so funny to me ), with Hanae Natsuki (Tanjiro) and Shimono Hiro (Zenitsu).— Nomi | お前が謝れ! お前らが詫びれ! 正座しろ! (@NomiMatsu) April 24, 2019

In the program, Hanae talks in a hushed whisper about discovering he was blocked by the official account when he went to retweet some its promotional content. After talking with staff, he discovered it was due to a misunderstanding since he has the word "bot" in his profile description. In Hanae's case, he included it as a little joke in reference to posting cat content. He cleared up the misunderstanding only to once again discover that he was blocked a second time.
Hanae changed "bot" to "b0t" to avoid the algorithm (or human error) that kept getting him blocked.
The Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba anime adapts Koyoharu Gotouge's manga of the same title. The anime premiered on April 6, and Aniplex of America licensed the series. The show is streaming on Hulu, Crunchyroll, and FunimationNow. Adult Swim's Toonami programming block will premiere the series on October 12.
