Demon Slayer: why in Kimetsu no Yiba Tomioka Giyu is considered “different”

Demon Slayer: He is one of the most talented warriors due to the fact that he has been able to defeat various demons.

The Kimetsu no Yiba series, also known as “Demon Slayer” Has become one of the favorites of those who like productions that have to do with demons and zombies. Precisely, here one can observe how the epic battles unfold between demon hunters against creatures of evil that only seek to feed on people.

In history, the warriors who have become the strongest hunters are presented, among which Gyomei Himejima, Sanemi Shinazugawa, Obanai Iguro stand out.


There is also Mitsuri Kanroji, Tengen Uzui, Muichiro Tokito, Shinobu Kocho, Kyojuro Rengoku, and Giyu Tomioka. All of them have faced various demons and defeated them. For this reason, they have managed to become Pillars after going through and overcoming several challenges that put their lives in danger and took their body and mind to the limit. But in the anime, there is one of the warriors who also stands out for his abilities because he is different from the others.


Also known as the “Pilar del Agua”, he is one of the most talented warriors inKimetsu no yiba, because he has managed to defeat several demons with which he was able to obtain the position of Hahira and thus surpass his master Sakonji Urokodaki.

But he was not always powerful, because when he was younger he suffered a lot when the members of his family were attacked by demons who ended their lives. On that occasion, he was able to survive thanks to the sacrifice of his sister.

Therefore, they wanted to take him to a doctor who was well known in the field of mental illness and disorders; however, he knew that everything that had happened that time was real.


It was on that occasion when Tomioka managed to escape towards the mountains and there he found one of the pillars, the one of water, and his name was Sakonki Urokodaki. He helped the young man and saved him from demons so he also wanted to become a great hunter.


The Hahira of Water, due to his great abilities to face and defeat demons, also had his disciples who were trained in order to continue the streak of hunting the creatures that caused terror among the villagers.

Like Tomioka, Sabito was another of the Water Hashira’s disciples. Both became great friends and stood out for having different characteristics. While Tomioka was talented, Sabito was even more talented and also noted for having great strength and dexterity. This made him stand out from the rest of the disciples.


Sabato, being the most talented disciple that Urokodaki had, defended the participants for a week which also included Tomioka Giyu, whom he saved from the Demons of Hands, who would end up killing Sabato. Soon after Tomioka became a demon hunter, but this he had achieved thanks to Sabito, who had protected him.


The young Tomioka Giyu always accepted to be different from the other pillars, this is not because he was more special but because he simply was not. Among what is known is that his strength was that of Sabito and his sister. This is how the young man thought, although after facing several demons it could be said that he achieved it thanks to his strength.

Although the rest of the disciples had gained an adequate position as true strong warriors, there was something about Tomioka that told him that he did not “deserve” to stand next to them.

Before this, Tanjiro Kamado would remind him why his sister, Sabito, Makomo, and all those who had died fought so much, this made Tomioka regain his motivation to fight and be able to face Kibutsuji Muzan again, the true responsible for all the complicated situation.


Similar to the Pillar of Insects, Shinobu Kocho, Matsuri Kanroji appears small and demure in the first encounter. Opponents are reckless in underestimating any of these swordsmen. Like Shinobu, Mitsuri is extremely fast and agile. His development of the Breath of Love, a sword technique derived from the Breath of Flame, first seen in Vol. 13 # 112.

This technique allows him to use his sword like a whip at lethal speeds and flexibility. Also, his immense muscular strength allows him to generate powerful build-up techniques and battle styles. Like Shinobu, only Mitsuri can access her loving breath; Shinobu is the master of the Insect Breath while Mitsuri is the master of the Breath of Love.
