Today we have brought everything you need to know about one of the Hashira’s who will play a significant role in the Demon Slayer Swordsmith Village Arc and fight against the Demon King Kibutsuji Muzan.
Mitsuri Kanroji is the current Love Hashira in the Demon Slayer Corps. She is one of the most vital members of the Demon Slayer Corps and has unique abilities that make her the toughest demon slayers during a battle.
Mitsuri Kanroji uses Love Breathing, a technique which she herself developed from Flame Breathing. Mitsuri passed her Final Selection just after six months of training, while Tanjiromanaged to do so after a period of over two years of tireless training.
Mitsuri Kanroji is also one of the youngest Hashiras and unlocks the Demon Slayer Mark during her battle against the Upper Demon Moon Four, Hantengu in the Swordsmith Village Arc in Demon Slayer Season 3.
Let’s see What makes the Love Hashira, Mitsuri Kanroji, one of the strongest Demon Slayers?
The Powers and Abilities of Love Hashira, Mitsuri Kanroji
Mitsuri Kanroji can be considered a superhuman. Her body is 8 times denser than any normal human being. It means that even razor-sharp blades which can cut down an elephant would barely scratch her.
To add more to this devastating ability, Mitsuri also has super strength. She inherits this from her mother but surpasses her multi-folds. Mitsuri can easily lift huge boulders or heavy objects as if they were toys.
Even with this hard rock strong skin, Misturi is extremely flexible. She can easily manipulate her body as per her will, and her flexibility is at par with Inosuke. (Except the part where he can move his organs inside his body as per his wish.)
Her extremely flexible body allows her to wield her unique Nichirin Blade. Mitsuri’s blade and fighting style are something else.
She can easily decapitate hundreds of demons without even a scratch on herself. Let’s see her breathing style and more about her Nichirin sword in the next section.
At first glance, you would think that Mitsuri and Tokito would be the weakest Hahiras, but no other Hashira can beat the love Hashira Mitsuri Kanroji in terms of strength.
Also, no Hashira can be compared to the Mist Hashira Tokito Muichiro in terms of speed (even the Sound Hashira!)
Love Hashira and the Mist Hashira will be the centre of action in Demon Slayer Swordsmith Village Arc. You must check out their skills and abilities.
Love Hashira, Mitsuri Kanroji’s Love Breathing Technique
Love Hashira, Mitsuri Kanroji uses the Love Breathing Technique, a breathing style that she herself developed from Flame Breathing.
Mitsuri was once a Tsugoku (a demon slayer trained by a Hashira) of the Flame Hashira, Kyojuro Rengoku. She practised Flame Breathing and eventually developed Love Breathing Form as it suited her.
Mitsuri was so talented that she passed the Final Selection only after six months of training, where it took Tanjiroover two years of intense training and practice to just make it out of the Final Selection alive.
Mitsuri Kanroji was taken as a Tsugoku by Flame Hashira Kyojuro Rengoku and was supposed to master the Flame Breathing, which was passed down in the Rengoku Family from generations.
But, Mitsuri’s skills were far superior. She honed her breathing techniques to develop the Love Breathing and rose to the rank of Hashira soon. She is among the youngest Hashira’s in the Demon Slayer Corps.
Love Hashira, Mitsuri Kanroji’s Nichirin Blade
This is the part most of you might have been waiting for. The Nichirin Bladeof Love Hashira Misturi Kanroji.
Mitsuri’s blade is unlike any known sword. In fact, it is more of a whip than a sword.Love Hashira’s blade is a very sharp and thin whip made from the Nichirin Ore. It is much longer than any sword, and Mitsuri needs to fold it multiple times before putting it in its sheath.
Mitsuri’s immense Flexibility allows her to easily manipulate the Blade and her body effortlessly. Her whip-like blade can easily decapitate any demon. Also, her superhuman strength creates powerful lashes of the blade that can even slice a large rock into two.
Love Hashira’s unique Nichirin Blade will be one of the key attractions of the Demon Slayer Swordsmith Village Arc. Fans will have to wait till the later half of the year 2023 to watch the Demon Slayer Season 3.
Love Hashira, Mitsuri Kanroji’s Backstory, and Why did Mitsuri Kanroji join the Demon Slayer Corps?
Mitsuri Kanroji was born in an ordinary family. She was strongest among all her siblings. Her mother was also known for her strength, but Mitsuri was stronger than her even in her childhood.
Mitsuri’s body is eight times denser than any average human, and even a knife would require a super sharp edge and a lot of power to cause any damage. Mitsuri also had a great appetite. She ate more than three times the food than her siblings.
Due to her superhuman strength and huge appetite, she was often called names by other children. They even said that no one would marry her if she had such habits.
To overcome this, she started eating considerably less food and using almost no strength. She tried to act more girl-like. Mitsuri wanted someone to love her and marry her for who she was.
For the same reason, she joined the Demon Slayer Corps. Yes! It may sound absurd, but her primary reason for joining Demon Slayers was to find a husband who would be more powerful and stronger than her.
She thought that she would find such a person among the strongest people, but she herself was strong enough to make it to the rank of Hashira, the highest rank possible for a member of the Demon Slayer Corps.
So her chances of potential suiters reduced to Hashiras as they are the only ones who could be stronger than her.
Whom does the Love Hashira Mitsuri Kanroji love?
Mitsuri has a loveable personality. She adores everyone for everything. Even when Tanjirowas brought to Demon Slayer Headquarters and was about to be executed for travelling with a demon, Mitsuri was sad that a young boy with such an adorable face would have to die.
It seems that the Serpent Hashira, Obanai, loves Mitsuri Kanroji. He often buys her presents like the Green Coloured Socks the Love Hashira wears along with her Demon Slayer Uniform.
He also treats her to meals and knows when and how she is feeling. Their relationship is very cute, but unfortunately, they will have to come back in another life to marry each other.
Mitsuri, too loves the Serpent Hashira but express her feelings only in the end when he departs to battle the Demon King Kibutsuji Muzan and asks him to return alive. They both would eventually die together after defeating the Demon King.
Do not get disappointed with this sad ending as the Love Hashira had lived its life to the fullest. She is also the first Hashira in this generation to unlock the Demon Slayer Mark. She will defeat the Upper Demon Moon Four Hantengu in the Swordsmith Village Arc.
