This victory changes the direction of the development of the arch of the Village of Swordsmen and increases the morale of the Demon Slayer Corps, and these female hashirs are a symbol of hope.
These formidable fighters, from the youngest to the oldest, specialize in various fighting styles and breathing techniques. They play a crucial role as powerful warriors of the first line of the Corps. The hashir women in Demon Slayer are characterized by their unique abilities, motivation and unwavering determination. They protect humanity and are the last bastion of hope. This article discusses all these female hashirs, classified by age.
From Junior to Senior, all women are Hashirs in Demon Slayer
1. Kanao Tsuyuri
Kanao Tsuyuri is only 16 years old, and she is the youngest among the women of Hashira. She is known for her adaptability and strength, gracefully mastering the technique of flower breathing. Kanao’s journey began with the fact that she was the adopted sister of Shinobu and Kanae Kocho, driven by the desire to protect others from the same fate that befell her family.
Being the youngest, Kanao Tsuyuri brings youthful energy and determination to the ranks of Hashira. Her devotion to her adopted sisters Shinobu and Kanae Kocho fuels her devotion to the Body. In the final battle against Muzan Kibutsuji, Kanao Tsuyuri uses his Flower Breathing technique: A Whirlwind of Peonies to create a tornado of swords that pierces Muzan’s body, seriously weakening him and changing the course of the battle.
2. Shinobu Kocho
Next in line is Shinobu Kocho, a Hashira insect who is 18 years old. His fighting style, Insect Breathing, demonstrates his unique skills in combat. Shinobu’s devotion to the Demon Slayer Corps stems from the tragedy of his parents becoming victims of demons. She was not only a fierce warrior, but also the protector of her adopted sister Kanao Tsuyuri.
When he was fighting Dressage, Shinobu Kocho’s punch went through Dressage’s neck and pierced him through. She saw him succumb to the poison in triumph. However, in a cruel twist, the House won and absorbed her. Shinobu’s role as Hashira’s Insect makes her a formidable opponent on the battlefield.
3. Mitsuri Kanroji
Mitsuri Kanroji, Love Hashira, 19 years old, and she must be reckoned with. Her love breathing technique shines as much as her personality. Mitsuri’s journey is dictated by a deep love for her family, including her mother, her father, her younger brother and her three (unidentified) younger siblings.
In Demon Slayer: Swordsmith Village Arc, Mitsuri Kanroji confronts Hanteng’s fourth body, Zohakuten, a manifestation of the demon’s hatred. Despite being outnumbered, defeated, wounded, and poisoned, Mitsuri awakens her Demon Slayer Mark and continues to fight. She keeps the Zohakuten at bay until Tanjiro and the others defeat the main Hantengu corps, ensuring victory for the Demon Slayer Corps. This is proof of how strong he is.
4. Kanae Kocho
Unfortunately, Kanae Kocho, the flower of Hashira, found her destiny at the age of 17, becoming a victim of a demon of the second rank, at Home. She was the older sister of Shinobu Kocho and the adopted sister of Kanao Tsuyuri. Kanae’s mastery of the flower breathing technique has left an indelible legacy in the Demon Slayer Corps.
Although she eventually dies, she inflicts serious wounds on the House and saves Shinobu and his legacy while Flower Hashira is still alive. Kanae Kocho, the Flower of Hashira, fights Dom, a demon of the second rank of the highest rank, and remains steadfast. Her flower breathing technique and dedication to her body continue to inspire her younger sister Shinobu and her fellow Hashires.
In Demon Slayer, there are several famous Hashir women who embody power and serve as a pillar of humanity’s defense against demons. Each Hashira has a unique fighting style and an unwavering commitment to protecting humanity.
From Kanao Tsuyuri’s youthful determination to Shinobu Kocho’s elegance, Mitsuri Kanroji’s brilliance, and the legacy of the late Kanae Kocho, these Hashirs showcase various strengths that make the Demon Slayer Corps a formidable force against evil.
Their stories of love, loss and unwavering devotion continue to fascinate fans as the series progresses. This anime has been blessed not only with strong hashires, but also with awesome Ufotable animation that makes the stories more exciting.
