Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba

We’d be remiss, however, if we didn’t explore the presence of the Hashira that are also in the vicinity of the Swordsmith Village in “Demon Slayer.” From the heavy focus of the new opening title sequence, it looks like Mitsuri Kanroji (Kana Hanazawa/Kira Buckland), The Love Hashira, and Muichiro Tokito (Kengo Kawanishi/Griffin Burns), The Mist Hashira, are going to be backing up Tanjiro and Nezuko primarily for this arc.

While the Mist Hashira seems to be somewhat cold and uncaring, The Love Hashira, fitting to her title, is the polar opposite. She even admits to Tanjiro that she fought her way to becoming a top Hashira in hopes that she might find someone worthy of her love, and her focus seems to be on Tanjiro.

Not only is she incredibly flirty when she meets up with Tanjiro, but she also tells him a valuable secret: there’s an unfathomably powerful weapon hidden somewhere in the village, and if Tanjiro can find it, it might change him forever. Immediately, Tanjiro and Nezuko set out to find it while they await the repair or reforging of Tanjiro’s chipped sword.

Another interesting revelation is that Mitsuri can understand Nezuko. Being that she’s the first character who we’ve seen have an open conversation with Nezuko in the real world, this could prove to be pivotal, especially if she does become a love interest for Tanjiro. This would also fill in a key gap in the story, as Tanjiro has yet to have any serious love interests thus far.
