After delving into the beautiful and tragic past of a Hashira, demon slayer made yet another attempt to reveal the plot of Love Hashira Mitsuri Kanroji, and the results were almost terribly disappointing. While the Demon Slayer’s male Hashira had life-changing encounters with demons that pushed them to become the warriors they are today, Mitsuri was left with a past that made her personality just more than a woman looking for a man’s love.
Mitsuri is good friends with Tanjiro and Nezuko, and her performance in battle is impressive, so fans are certainly eager to know her background. However, rather than being driven to kill demons because of some tragedy that befell her, or simply wanting to protect those who can’t protect themselves, Mitsuri is said to be a woman who “cannot love” ” due to her unusual physical strength and hair. The only real negative incident in her past was her potential husband’s rejection of her arranged marriage proposal because of these traits of hers, which sent Love Hashira into a downward spiral. questions about everything about yourself.
Mitsuri’s disappointing past stems from sexism
In flashbacks to her past, Mitsuri is said to have unusually dense muscle tissue, making her much stronger for her size. It also gives her an insatiable appetite, which the men around her seem to consider a minus. At no point did Mitsuri encounter a demon, and it seems she was simply being spied on by the Ubuyashiki family. Kagaya, the head of the family, praised her strength, causing her to shed tears and apparently joined the Demon Slayer Corps. Her goal in the organization is to find a man stronger than her, because that’s “obviously” the only way for her to be loved.
Needless to say, this particular plot is filled with sexist assumptions, only some of which are rooted in the era in which the story is set. She even said, “a woman must marry and become someone’s wife,” an idea that may have been popular at the time but is certainly deprecated today. Unlike most Hashira, Mitsuri doesn’t seem to have any personal reason to fight demons, which immediately makes her a weaker character. Mitsuri’s hair color is also said to have the most bizarre origin: her hair and eyes changed color after eating 170 cherry blossom rice cakes every day for months on end.
In these flashbacks, Mitsuri appears as a very shallow character who only worries about not living up to the feminine stereotype, all done in an incredibly unrealistic way. Compared to the recently revealed origin stories of Muichiro Tokito and Genya Shinazugawa, both of whom lost at the hands of a demon, Mitsuri’s reasons for becoming a murderer are slim. It’s a pity, as Mitsuri’s character is a fun and interesting person who stands out in the group. There are a million other behind-the-scenes stories she could have had, but Mitsuri’s past turned out to be one of the biggest blunders of her life. demon slayertake down a very good episode.
