Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon (Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid) encountered a surprising level of censorship for the launch of its second season in China. Some fans unveiled the form of censorship on social media.
The second season of the anime concluded its run as part of the 2021 summer anime calendar earlier this year, and it was a welcome return to anime series by Kyoto Animation.

China censors Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon
One of the main elements of Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid that has generated both praise and criticism from fans is the character design of the female dragons. Each comes with a “very large hood”, and it appears that for the broadcast in China, these elements of its design had been reduced.
