To a demon slayer, does age really matter? Well, at least, when it comes to experience, aged demon slayers will have the advantage. On another side, the young ones stand at par in terms of stamina and the vigor to win a fight.
Regardless of who’s the oldest or youngest, Kimetsu No Yaiba characters continue to thrill its fans through the unconventional anime plot.
The story was grounded on the desire of Tanjiro to bring her sister, Nezuko, back in her human form. In his desire to do so, Tanjiro allowed himself to be trained as demon slayer. From there, he met multiple characters who played the most important role in the story.
So, going back to the question, does age really matter if you’re a demon slayer? Truth is, we don’t know the direct influence of age on the fighting ability of these characters. What we only have is the number that states how young or old these Kimetsu No Yaiba characters are.
The figure below sums up the age profile of your favorite character:
Playing the role as the main protagonist in the story, Tanjiro had his first major breakdown when all his family members were devoured by demons. Her sister Nezuko was the sole survivor but on a sad fate, she turned into a demon.
Tanjiro then vowed to bring Nezuko back to her human form. He joined the demon slayer corps in hopes of finding the antidote for his sister.
Nezuko was only 12 when she was demonized. She has not shown any sign of ageing even when she turned 14 on the later part of the story.
Her being demonized came out as the reason for her stagnant physical appearance. It takes an antidote for her to get back in her human trait, which is a mission on Tanjiro’s end.
Although Nezuko was under the control of a demon, she’s able to manifest her sibling love to Tanjiro, making her unique among other demonized characters.
Zenitsu is a bit older than Tanjiro. Some anime fan know how sharp is Zenitsu’s ability to fight with a sword.
He acquired solid training way back his childhood days when he was Jigoro Kuwajima’s pupil. An indicator that Zenitsu is far from becoming incapable.
Talk about arrogance and for sure, Inosuke could be on top of the list. Though he is strong enough to take care of himself, Inosuke oftentimes digs his own grave by assuming that he is far capable than the rest of the demon slayers.
He would deal a fight with someone who would possibly match his skill. In some cases, he would have a match with someone stronger than him.
Inosuke was raised by boars in the wild. So you’d often see him wearing a pig-like head dress. Thus, he had a tough time adjusting to his human circle because he wasn’t used to the human environment.
But all thanks to his affiliation in the demon slayer corps, he slowly learned to accept his human side.
Kanao has a large and mesmerizing pink eyes with a hair styled in a ponytail. A stern upbringing pushed Kanao to shut herself off as a means of self-preservation.
