Ah, so you like it”Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba“, huh? Let’s take a look at the Hashira, those mysterious and powerful guys who appeared at the beginning of the series.

They are the elite of the Demon Slayer Corps, so fierce that even the Twelve Kizuki, these powerful demons, respect them. Over time, the Hashira gained more space in the story, going from quick appearances to key characters in several arcs. But the life of killing demons is tough, and not all of the Hashira survived until the end of the series.

Kyojuro Rengoku, the Flame Hashira

First, let’s talk about Kyojuro Rengoku, the Flame Hashira. He shined in the “Mugen Train” arc, saving 200 people before being defeated by Akaza, Upper Three. His legacy remains strong, inspiring characters like Tanjiro Kamado and even his colleague Hashira Tengen Uzui. At the end of the manga, which takes place generations later, Kyojuro’s spirit lives on in Tojuro Rengoku, a descendant of his brother, Senjuro.

But that didn’t stop Kokushibo from brutally attacking Muichiro, cutting off his arm, stabbing him in the chest, and more. Muichiro still managed to wound Kokushibo before dying, but ended up as just a head on a limbless torso. At the end of the manga, we see the reincarnation of Muichiro and his twin brother Yuichiro as babies in a stroller.
