    It is difficult to narrow down the start of the rumors or why exactly they started but there are some speculations. The rumors for the cancellation or ban of the anime started quite early, it was only the second episode that American fans speculated that the anime might get banned due to its sexual content and violence. This same situation occurred with Demon Slayer but the rumors turned out to be completely false. 

    Another reason why this rumor may have started is the tweet posted by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission in which they talk about a man made of chainsaws and then talk about the risk that chainsaws have and the important safety tips one needs to keep in mind before using one. 

    This tweet was meant as a joke and most fans took it as such. However, some people took it seriously and thought that the US government is worried about this show being dangerous and the violence is too much for the audience. 

    Can It Be Banned In The Future?
