Shinobu Kocho: The Insect Hashira

Time to talk about Best Girl, Shinobu Kocho! She is my favorite Hashira mainly because she has the coolest way of killing demons. If you dont already know, she kills demons by injecting poison through her sword to the, The Poison is only harmful to demons and makes them ‘melt’? I dont think Melt is the right word, more like when you put salt on slugs and they melt. Like that.

She do got a way with her hands tho.

The reason she kills demons like that is because best girl (I’m going to be referring to her like that) is small. Small Best Girl is 4’9. Pretty short, and due to that she does not have enough strength in her upper body to cut of a demons head. But she manages to kill a lot of demons, well she is a Hashira so what do you except?

Even though her arms cant swing enough to cut a demons head off, she has the strongest thrusting ability of all the hashiras. She is also very good at Medical stuff. She was able to create a potion/Serum that aged Kibutsuji Muzan 9000 years in 3 hours so the demon Slayers could keep up with his speed. She also teamed up with Yushiro and Tamayo to create Anti-Kibutsuji ‘Drug’ which severly weakened him.

Another One of her accomplishments is creating a serum that turns demons back to Human, but due to the fact that she dies, She was only able to create one which was used on Tanjiro to turn him back to Human after the final Arc.

If you haven’t read my Final Arc Battle, You definitely should because if gives more information about how she died and her final Battle too. But to recap her death, She went up against upper demon Moon 2, Doma (my Favorite Demon) and was dissolved into him, like i think he dissolved her into his body? something like that.

But she had taken a Wisteria serum which is harmful to demons specifically due to the fact that she wanted to kill Doma because He killed her elder sister when she was a Hashira. After the Battle, Doma randomly started to melt and Inosuke and Kanae were saved thanks to Shinobu’s tactic.

  1. Really loved your blog and it brought back some amazing memories. It was my first manga and its story and characters just moved me. My favorite is the water hashira but like shinobu for being so confident and independent.
