Hero Overview

Iguro, please... if we're reborn, and we're reborn as humans... can I be your bride?
~ Mitsuri Kanroji proposing to Obanai Iguro.
Yay, I've been saved. They must've done it. They must've beheaded the main body.
~ Mitsuri Kanroji is happy that Tanjiro and his friends defeated Hantengu as they saved her in the process.

Mitsuri Kanroji (甘露寺 蜜璃) is a major character in the 2016-2020 dark fantasy manga series Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba and its 2019 anime adaptation. She is one the two deuteragonists (alongside Muichiro Tokito) of the Swordsmith Village arc and its third season adaptation. She is also the deuteragonist of the manga spin-off Kyojuro Rengoku: Gaidan, which depicts about her time as the protégé of the Flame Hashira Kyojuro Rengoku.

She is the Love Hashira of the Demon Slayer Corps and a love interest of Obanai Iguro. Unlike most of members of Demon Slayer Corps whose lives were destroyed by Demons and joined the Corps to seek vengeance, Mitsuri entered the Corps to seek a strong man who would accept and marry her, since the Demon Slayer Corps is comprised of many strong men. After training rigorously in a bid to interact with Pillars as much as she could (since Pillars are strongest people in the Corps), she became the Pillar herself.

She is voiced by Kana Hanazawa in Japanese and by Kira Buckland in English, who also voiced 2B in Nier: Automata game and anime series, and Ameri Azazel in Welcome to Demon School, Iruma-kun.


Mitsuri Kanroji is a 19-year-old young woman with waist-length or hip-length pink hair mixed in a neon-green color that she styles in three thick braids with five shorter clumps falling over her nose like bangs, pale bright green eyes with long eyelashes and a small mole under each eye.

She wears a modified violet tinted version of the Demon Slayer Corps Uniform and a white haori. Within' her uniform the chest area is unbuttoned and she wears a short skirt instead of the Hakama. She wears a pair of striped lime-green socks with a pair of navy blue thigh-high socks and pink lined boots with sandals.


Mitsuri is an emotional and passionate girl who compliments people in her head constantly, most likely a contributing factor towards her nickname "The Hashira of Love", although she is rather shy and easily flustered. She is always kind to others, most notably towards Obanai Iguro, whom she has an especially strong bond with. She greatly admires her fellow Hashira brethren and respects them, particularly her mentor, Rengoku, who she sees as her big brother figure.

Mitsuri's loving kindness extends to Tanjiro and Nezuko Kamado, with Mitsuri being incredibly touched by Tanjiro's protective nature towards his younger sister. Because of this, she was one of the only Hashira (alongside Giyu) willing to accept Nezuko into the corps, despite her being a demon. In the Swordsmith Village Arc, she quickly formed a bond with the Kamado siblings, particularly towards Nezuko, acting like a big sister figure.

Abilities and Powers[]


  • First Form: Shivers of Love: With a sequence of slashes, Mitsuri dashes forward.
  • Second Form: Love Pangs: An prolonged slash of whipping.
  • Third Form: Catlove Shower: In short succession, Mitsuri leaps and unleashes a sequence of varied armed assaults.
  • Fifth Form: Swaying Love - Wildclaw: Until coiling her sword around her opponents' throat, Mitsuri somersaults backward through the air, making a long whip-like series of attacks.
  • Sixth Form: Cat-Legged Winds of Love: With her blade, Mitsuri twirls upside-down and creates a helical cut, deflecting incoming attacks.


  • The name Mitsuri is a Japanese word that means "honey" (蜜) (mitsu) and "glassy, lapis lazuli" (璃) (ri).
  • Mitsuri's surname Kanroji means "honeydew, nectar, sweetness" (甘露) (kanro) and "temple" (寺) (ji).


  • Out of presumably all characters in the series, Mitsuri is the only one to not have endured a tragic background, or at least the least tragic; instead of losing one of her loved ones or relatives, she has only experienced constant rejection over other men because of her exotic hair color.
  • Misturi has the biggest appetite compared to the other Hashira.
    • This even causes her food expenses to be extremely high because of how much she eats.
  • Mitsuri is ranked in 12th place as of the first character of popularity poll with 280 votes.
  • Mitsuri and Shinobu Kocho get along pretty well since they are the only two female Hashira after Kanae Kocho's death.
  • One of the reasons Obanai Iguro trusts Mitsuri so much is because she is one of the few people Kaburamaru didn't hiss at.
  • In an official Demon Slayer fanbook, the demons Mitsuri killed spoke no ill will about her and rather praised her breathing style that killed them and how she looked apologetic towards one of them.
