The anime and manga series “Demon Slayer” features a diverse cast of characters, each with unique personalities, backstories, and abilities. Among the members of the Demon Slayer Corps is Mitsuri Kanroji, who serves as the Love Hashira, also known as the Pillar of Love. While she may appear to be a shy and gentle young woman with a sweet and affectionate personality, Mitsuri is a skilled fighter with incredible strength, agility, and endurance.
Mitsuri is introduced as a supporting character in the anime’s first season, but she becomes a prominent figure in the Swordsmith Village Arc, which is the story arc that follows the events of the first season. She has light pink hair that fades into lime green towards the ends of her braids, and she wears a pink-tinted version of the demon slayer uniform. Instead of pants, she wears a short pleated skirt and a pair of navy blue-high socks underneath a vertically striped lime-green pair of socks, which were given to her by Obanai Iguro. Mitsuri’s unique style and appearance make her stand out among the other characters in the series.
Mitsuri’s mentor was Kyojuro Rengoku, the Flame Hashira, who taught her the Love Breathing technique, which she derived from his Flame Breathing technique. This technique involves channeling one’s emotions and using them to increase physical strength and power. As the Love Hashira, Mitsuri uses her Love Breathing technique and her unique whip-like katana to unleash powerful long-range attacks that a normal katana would not be able to do. Her flexible nichirin sword also plays a huge role when attacking opponents as she can use the sword to either easily block or land attacks.
Mitsuri’s unique abilities and techniques do not end there. Her body has a special muscular composition that makes her muscles eight times denser than a regular human’s, and she possesses a Demon Slayer mark, which takes the form of two hearts upside down and opposite to each other with angel wings on both sides, located on the left side of her neck. Once manifested, her physical strength and power dramatically increases, enabling her to go head-to-head with any powerful demon. Although her body can become quite muscular, Mitsuri is also extremely flexible, which gives her the ability to fight using range, this mixed with her love breathing technique allows her to land and block powerful attacks.
Mitsuri’s superhuman-like reflexes and movement enable her to even dodge and cut through lightning and sound waves created by an upper-rank demon’s art while also countering the attacks. Her incredible stamina and endurance is also something notable as she was able to continue to keep fighting even after battling for long periods of time. Although she was not recognized as the fastest runner among the Hashiras, her techniques are known to be even faster than the Sound Hashira’s, Tengen Uzui.
It is revealed that Mitsuri joined the Demon Slayer Corps in order to find herself a suitable husband who is stronger than she is, even though she possesses an immense level of strength, which made the task even harder for her. Despite this, she takes her role as a Demon Slayer and Hashira very seriously and shows no mercy towards demons. Mitsuri is constantly seen to have a rather emotional personality and is always caring towards her fellow peers.
Overall, Mitsuri Kanroji is a fascinating character in the “Demon Slayer” universe. Her unique appearance, personality, and abilities make her a standout among the other characters. Her story arc in the Swordsmith Village is particularly compelling, and it reveals even more about her past and motivations. Mitsuri’s impressive strength, agility, and endurance
