Nezuko Is Underutilized
From Redditor u/berenini:
I feel like she is being underutilized. Nezuko is predominantly being used as a plot device. It is because of Nezuko's survival that we even have the story. Tanjiro would have a different motivation if Nezuko was not alive.
Right now, she is essentially a mascot like Groot or Baby Yoda. Just a cute little object for people to fawn at. There's a lot of depth and potential in this character, but her character has not been utilized very well (I hope this changes for future seasons). She has a strong will, self control, and immense love for humanity. She is a hard worker and is very driven (it cannot be easy ignoring her instinct to drink blood, what a champ), but she has very few moments to shine...

Eliminating The Lower Moons Was A Bad Decision
Killing the Lower Moons was one of the worst decisions Goutoge made. Not only did it waste a lot of potentially interesting characters, which could’ve been used to develop the pillars earlier, but also shortened the story by a considerable amount.— Ppinho2711 + 2.22 (@ppinhoartz2711) January 18, 2020

Shinobu And Lady Tamayo Are OP
From Redditor u/Youngsmartandbroke:
Shinobu and Lady Tamayo are OP and I don't care what anyone says. I don't wanna spoil anything but if it wasn't for them, a lot of stuff would have turned bad real quick.

Tanjiro's And Nezuko's Sudden Abilities
From Redditor u/canadakeroro:
Tanjiro remember[ing] Hinokami Kagura from his childhood memories is great but the delivery could've been a lot better with some foreshadowing or pre-establishment…just because he remembered the dance and the moves doesn't mean he should [be] able to know the breathing technique. It's just [a] typical as*pull.
Nezuko woke up and save[d] Tanjiro [was] also brilliant as that's arguably the theme of this battle - the battle between 2 different ideologies on family bond - but, again, Nezuko just learned how to use her blood demon art even though she never practiced, and she hasn't been through that [many] battle[s] for experience…she instantly knew how to [use her blood demon art] and [that it] was going to be helpful for that situation, even though she never used it and [couldn't] possibly know what kind of blood demon art she possesses.

Zenitsu Is Not Relatable
From Redditor u/SaltyBlueberry:
Zenitsu is not relatable. Yes, most people would be scared of demons and open conflict, that's reasonable, but his level of cowardice is embarrassing and unfunny.
