The Journey of Mitsuri Kanroji: From Seeking Love to Becoming a Powerful Hashira
Misturi Kanroji is a young woman with very distinctive pink hair that delicately fades into light green towards the end of her braids. She was mentored by the former Flame Hashira Kyojuro Rengoku, fashioning her unique love breathing technique from Kyojuro’s powerful flame breathing.
She wears a unique pink-tinted version of the demon slayer uniform with an accompanying short pleated skirt and a pair of high-length navy blue socks worn underneath a lime-green pair of vertically striped socks.
Mitsuri is not your stereotypical Hashira. She is very emotional and passionate and surprisingly someone who gets really easily flustered.
She has a kind nature making sure she is kind to others, loves to meet her peers, and places a high value on her friendship with others.
It is revealed during the Swordsmith village arc that Misturi joined the Demon Slayer Corps looking for love and to find herself a suitable husband who is stronger than her which is no mean feat considering she is strong and immensely powerful.
On the outside Misturi Kanroji appears to be a naive, innocent character and maybe even quite weak but make no mistake about it Misturi takes her Demon Slaying very seriously and shows no mercy towards evil demons.
As the love Hashira, Mitsuri is an extremely skilled and immensely powerful fighter who completed the final selection trial in just six months of training, gaining her the attention and praise of the Flame Hashira Kyojuro Rengoku.
Exploring Mitsuri Kanroji’s Unique Abilities and Techniques
Mitsuri is a naturally gifted Demon Slayer, and physically built for the job at hand. She is not like other regular humans her body is unique with her muscles eight times denser than those of regular humans’ and to support her muscle mass she has quite a hefty appetite.
She possesses a Demon Slayer mark that takes the form of two upside-down hearts, opposite to each other with accompanying angel wings on both sides. When manifested her power and physical strength increase dramatically allowing her to go head-to-head with the most powerful of demons.
Despite her muscular physique, Mitsuri is extremely flexible. Her flexibility gives her the advantage of being able to engage in combat using range. When mixed with her love breathing technique she can land and block powerful attacks.
Her flexible Nichirin Whip-Katana is also very unique and allows her to block and land attacks with ease. Due to her immense strength and flexibility, Mitsuri found it very difficult to adapt to the flame breathing, so her swordsmith decided to give her a unique sword that moves more like a ribbon and in sync with her.
Although Mitusri is not known to be among the fastest-running Hashiras, her techniques are known to be extremely fast even faster than the sound Hashira’s, Tengen Uzui.
With her seemingly superhuman reflexes, we have seen her dodge and cut through lighting and sound waves while countering the attacks.
Her stamina and endurance are also off the chart allowing her to keep fighting even after battling for long periods of time and with her love breathing technique along with her Nichirin Whip-Katana she can unleash powerful long-range attacks.
Mitsuri is also the only female Demon Slayer who was able to unlock the Demon Slayer mark, making her quite the powerful Hashira.
