2021 massive hit Demon Slayer : Mugen Train the movie gave
us Rengoku Kyojuro, for which I am blessed and thankful. Because whenever you
come across such a charismatic, strong and genuinely good character, you
automatically know you have gained yet another favourite in a heartbeat. Let’s
talk about ou hero, the flame Hashira Rengoku Kyojuro from Demon Slayer. This
article will contain some major spoilers, so if you don’t want that, you can
skip straight to the tutorial.
WHO IS KYOJURO RENGOKU :
The eldest of the current Rengoku generation and the Flame
Hashira of the Demon Slayer Corps Kyojuro stands out for his charismatic
character traits and looks. Rengoku is, rather obviously, incredibly dedicated
to both the Flame Hashira title and his role as a Demon Slayer. Whilst he can
often come across as eccentric and strange, his enthusiasm to help people and
defeat demons cannot be understated. He is the son of the former Flame Hashira
for the Demon Slayer Corps, Shinjuro Rengoku, and has a younger brother,
Senjuro Rengoku, who also trained alongside him.
WHY DID RENGOKU DECIDE TO BECOME A HASHIRA?
It is not only limited to this father and son duo, since the
Flame Hashira always came from the Rengoku lineage before Kyojuro took over.
His father, Shinjuro Rengoku, was also the Flame Hashira for quite some time
before Kyojuro took over. Originally, the first head of the Rengoku family
learned the Sun Breathing technique from Yoriichi Tsugikuni, who then adapted
the technique into Flame Breathing, which would be passed down from generation
to generation and, as the eldest son of the current Rengoku family, it is his
duty to preserve their traditions. Not
to mention his brother, Senjuro, doesn't have the physical ability needed to
properly use Flame Breathing. So Kyojuro basically has little to no choice but
to dedicate himself to the way of the flaming swords, and become the next Flame
Hashira. Kyojuro’s mother always taught him the values of being strong and that
is to protect the weak. Thus he decided upon being a hashira and doing so.
KYOJURO’S POWERS AND TECHNIQUES :
Kyojuro has multiple forms of Flame Breathing art, and the
most powerful is the ninth form, he can change according to his ability. He is
an incredible swordsman and a very powerful boy at the age of 20. He is known
for his high speed, intellect, reflexes, and opinions, but most significantly
“an undaunted spirit and indomitable willpower.”
Rengoku’s first form is known as Unknowing Fire and the
