Kanao is a young girl with large, gentle eyes of a pink-lilac color that are framed by thick eyelashes. She has a straight fringe and two loose, chin-length strands that curve downwards from above each of her ears. Over this, she wears a short white cloak, fastened on one side by a dark pink triple knot, also sporting knee-high lace-up white boots with tan soles, heels and toes.
When Kanao is first introduced, she is an indecisive and quiet girl due to the abuse she endured before meeting the Kocho sisters. She became unable to make decisions by herself and repressed her emotions as a defence mechanism. In order to help rectify this, Kanae gave her a coin to flip to decide which path to follow when she didn't know what to do. For many years, Kanao continued to show little emotion or desire.
Initially, Shinobu instructed Kanao to simply cut mini portuguese water dog demon heads without thinking, since Kanao had no will of her own. However, Kanao also eventually developed her own desire to fight. Despite her perceived lack of emotion or desire, Kanao defied Shinobu and Kanae's wishes and took the final selection of her own volition, which would imply that her will had been strengthening all along.
She also gains the ability to speak unambiguously. Fuelled by hatred and spite due to her sisters' deaths by his hand, she attacks him verbally to the point where he drops his normal carefree demeanor. Kanao also demonstrates extreme determination and a deep care for her family, crying for the first time in the wake of Shinobu's death, and expressing that she had wished to go home together with her elder sister.
As such, Kanao possesses superhuman physical skills, abilities and prowess that potentially marks her as a future member of Demon Slayer Corps ' Pillars. Tanjiro, another promising candidate, even states that, during their first meeting together, he could already sense that Kanao was the closest to the Pillars out of the existing Demon Slayers, just by smelling her scent and feeling her aura, which further confirms her skills.

Shinobu at one point wished that humans and demons could become friends and would sometime offer to befriend her enemies. But that belief was shattered after the death of her sister Kanae.
Unwilling to heed Kanae's dying wish for Shinobu to leave Demon Slayer Corps until she kills the Demon who took Kanae from her, Shinobu had been hunting down Demons, hoping one day she would meet her sister's killer.
Shinobu would still offer Demons forgiveness - if they voluntarily undergo excruciating torture engineered by Shinobu herself as a restitution for their crimes of harming humans. She is voiced by Saori Hayami in the Japanese version of the anime, and by Erika Harlacher in the English version of the anime. Shinobu is regarded as a beautiful, petite young woman with a small frame. This leads people to underestimate her due to her frail appearance. She has black hair with purple highlighted tips tied back into a bun using a butterfly-shaped pin.
She has large deep purple eyes with no visible pupils and maintains an innocent look on her face most of the time. Shinobu dons the standard Demon Slayer uniform that consists of a dark purple straight-lined jacket, and hakama pants tucked into butterfly patterned fabric around her lower legs that match her haori. Her signature white haori has a butterfly wing pattern that mimics the appearance of butterfly wings whenever she moves. The white of the haori fades into turquoise and then pink color on her sleeves as well as the base of the dress and her legs.
Her sleeves are cuffed with a black and white dotted trim similar to an insect design. She completes her outfit by wearing white sandals with purple straps and a white belt that holds her sword sheath.
Shinobu Kocho always appears to be a calm and friendly woman, almost to an unsettling degree. She often greets others by saying "woo-hoo" after suddenly showing up next to them, often startling others. But beneath her smile actually lies ferocious, hot-headed true persona and it is revealed that her smile was Shinobu's last respect to carry one Kanae's persona to remember her. Despite her bubbly demeanor, Shinobu has a strong sense of justice and is more than willing to brutally punish demons for bringing harm to humanity.
Shinobu is very straightforward and always retains her calm and aloof personality in every situation. Even when demons don't agree to be her friend, a smile remains on Shinobu's face as she appears to enjoy punishing them. A crow returns to the Demon Slayer Corps's master and relays the message about the casualties. After realizing a Twelve Kizuki may be on the mountain, the master calls Shinobu and Giyu of the Hashira to action. Both the Hashiras accept their mission and Shinobu mentions that life would be easier if demons and humans could get along.
Giyu argues that can never happen as long as demons continue to feast on humans for survival. The two Hashiras arrive on Mt. Natagumo and encounter a gruesome scene where several demon slayers have been murdered. Shinobu points out there appear to be no survivors and all the Mizunoto sent to the mountain might be dead. Giyu replies that they should keep moving and they both continue running through the forest.
Shinobu says they should try to get along on their joint mission, but Giyu claims he's only there so slay demons. She calls Giyu's reply callous and they both agree to split up. Shinbou goes west while Giyu continues forward. Zenitsu's sparrow, Chuntaro, finds Shinobu and brings her to help him. She finds the poisoned demon slayer on top of a house and suddenly appears before him to ask if he's okay. Shinobu claims that a theory explains that people see images before their death because they're searching through their own lives for a way to live.
Shinobu says she's never experienced it herself and prepares an antidote. She commends Zenitsu for slowing down the poison with his breathing and administers the antidote. She is the only one of them who does not slay demons by beheading them, instead, she injects a deadly poison into her foes using her blade.
Even so, Shinobu is a very capable blade wielder and is well versed in swordsmanship. The style utilizes stabs and shallow cuts to inject fatal poison into the target.Popularity: 60th All Time12th This Week. Contact Info: - Unlocked Profile.

She was formerly a human child princess named Rola likely meant to be Laura in English who was cursed into causing anyone in proximity to her to commit suicide. She now takes the form of an eight-year-old girl with another new name after losing most of her powers. She generally is called this, depending on the person talking about her or her power level at the time.
This vampire name was conceived by Deathtopia Virtuoso Suicide-Masterwho was very proud of how meaningful the name is. Kiss-Shot, the 'first name', is a reference to the fairy tale of cursed princesses being healed by a kiss from a prince. This also mirrors Araragi, who saved her from death, and became her 'prince'.
Acerola-Orion, the 'middle name', is composed of Acerola, Princess Rola's self given alias after the start of her journey, and Orion, which is a constellation on the equator east of Taurus represented as a hunter with a belt and sword, which reflects her nature as a vampire, that being to hunt and eat humans, as well as furthers Deathtopia's comparison of Princess Acerola to a sword.
Finally, Heart-Under-Blade, the 'last name', is born from Deathtopia's impressions of Princess Acerola as a strong woman, like a sword, but with a kind heart.
It is understood that people who have known her, either directly or by reputation, call her by her full vampire name in all cases, exception made of the specialists close to Meme Oshino who was the one to adopt and name her Shinobu after she lost her power following Koyomi Vamp.
On the contrary, people close enough to Koyomi Araragi to be aware of her existence refer to her as Shinobuas her child form is the only one they generally know of exception made for Tsubasa Hanekawa. Only Koyomi refers to her with both names, generally to referring to her according to her power level. Shinobu herself agrees that being weak changed her personality and that she knows her personality would probably revert to pre-Spring Break if she were to come back to being the powerful vampire she once was.
Koyomi generally refers to her as Shinobu intimately, but doesn't hesitate to refer to her by her full vampire name when thinking about her, not wanting to forget her nature nor forgive her actions during Spring Break.
Intimately, only Koyomi and Seishirou Shishirui called her by the nickname Kiss-shot in front of her. However, most people referring to her vampire nature abridge her name this way behind her back.
Shinobu is a young female with yellow eyes, pointy ears, sharp fangs, and long blond hair which curls outward at the end. During the course of the series, she takes on several changes in appearance depending on how much of her vampire powers she possesses.
Through most of the series, she assumes a younger form as an 8 year old. She wears a loose dress and a pair of sandals, with an aviator hat as an accessory in Bakemonogatari. In Kizumonogatariobtaining her stolen body parts causes her to age. Her true form as Kiss-Shot depicts a woman in her late 20's wearing a large, red and black dress. After losing most of her vampire powers, Shinobu falls into a long period of stupor.
She is frequently seen in Oshino's place with her hands tucking her knees in, her face always in an emotionless state.Tier : At least 8-Cat most 8-B.

Inosuke is a young man of average height and pale complexion with an extremely toned and muscular build for his age, possessing large, defined muscles most notably over his stomach and arms.
In sharp contrast to this, he has an incredibly pretty and feminine face with large, wide eyes that are framed by an array of long eyelashes, their irises a dark to soft pale green, thin eyebrows and what could be a small, well-mannered mouth. His thick, black hair reaches just past his shoulders, fading into blue at the tips and forming an unruly and uneven fringe that falls just above his eyes, puffing out before curving and thinning towards his forehead.
Inosuke wears his altered version of the standard Demon Slayer uniform, which consists only of the baggy hakama pants, his tinted a dark gray-blue, which he fastens around his hips with a thick belt of fluffy brown animal fur. The usual cloth leg-wraps are replaced with what appear to be knee-high socks of furry hide which expose his heels and toes, which also appear to be what fastens the sandal-bases he wears on his feet.
His most defining feature is the gray, hollowed-out boar's head he wears as to mask his own, the eyes of which he has tampered with to allow himself vision while wearing it which has been revealed to have belonged to his late adoptive boar mother. Inosuke is an extremely short-tempered and proud man who always likes to think he is the strongest fighter in a situation, constantly challenging most people he comes across and wanting others to respect and praise him for his skill.
This often leads him into unnecessary danger, since he tends to overestimate his abilities in comparison to who it is he's fighting and refuses to accept when he's been defeated, which can be seen when Giyu Tomioka literally has to tie him up after his fight with the Father Spider Demon to prevent him challenging the Pillar to a fight while still severely injured from his previous battle.
Due to him having been raised by boars, Inosuke has also been shown to possess little understanding of normal human interaction, at least at the time of his debut, as he seems to frequently assume that people who approach him want to attack him, and doesn't appear to understand the kindness others show him.
However, as the story goes on, Inosuke is influenced more and more by Tanjiro's ways and becomes more accustomed to affection and generosity, learning to also acknowledge the strength of people besides himself and develop feelings of friendship towards him and Zenitsu Agatsumaalthough he does still retain his proud nature and constant want for praise.
He also begins to think more strategically when engaging in combat, using smarter tactics he has picked up from more experienced Demon Slayers and not just rushing into fights head-on without thinking. With his enhanced sense of touch, Inosuke can utilize several different techniques. Fandom may earn an affiliate commission on sales made from links on this page. Sign In Don't have an account?
