As Demon Slayer is progressing with the third installment, fans have been noticed to get more concerned about knowing the abilities and drawbacks of the weapons of their favorite demon slayers. One of them is Mitsuri Kanroji, whose weapon has created a little talk within the global fandom of the series.

Mitsuri is too good at handling her sword, a striking pink Nichirin blade that’s made of scarlet ore and adorned with the powerful inscription “destroyer of demons.” With her mastery of the katana style of sword fighting, she moves with grace and precision, her blade slicing through the air with deadly accuracy. But there’s alot more to unpack about it, let’s dive right in.

How is Mitsuri Kanroji’s Nichirin blade in Demon Slayer unique ? 

Mitsuri, unlike most Demon Slayers, wields a unique weapon called the Nichirin Katana, which is extremely thin, flexible, and long. It is often known as the ‘Love Sword’ and resembles a whip, was crafted by Tecchin Tecchikawahara due to its unconventional shape requiring exceptional expertise. Mitsuri’s sword’s structure is so distinctive that only she can use it without injuring herself, which can be attributed to her superhuman flexibility.

Thanks to her katana, Mitsuri can execute techniques faster than the Sound Hashira, Tengen Uzui, and keep up with the attacks of Upper Four Hantengu’s most powerful manifestation Zohakuten.

The pink color of her whip katana is a unique feature, and her hilt is shaped like a four-leaf clover, with each leaf having a pink core with a golden border. The words “Destroyer of Demons” are engraved on the side, adding to the weapon’s mystique.

In addition to her unusual katana, Mitsuri carries a standard-sized and shaped sword sheath. However, due to the unique shape of her sword, she must fold it multiple times to correctly sheathe it. Mitsuri’s use of the whip katana, combined with her impressive agility, makes her an incredibly powerful Demon Slayer.

How is it beneficial to Mitsuri?

The ‘Love Sword’ is an extension of her own body, reflecting her soft and supple muscles and flexible joints. Her sword’s unique design, extremely thin and soft, allows her to execute lightning-fast techniques, unmatched by any of the other Pillars. It takes a great deal of skill and finesse to wield the Love Sword, and only Mitsuri has been able to master it.

The reason behind this unique weapon is simple – it perfectly complements Mitsuri’s love breathing style, her exceptional muscle density, and her unparalleled flexibility. By combining these attributes with the Love Sword’s design, Mitsuri is able to harness the full extent of her abilities, resulting in a deadly combination that few can match.

Mitsuri’s opponents are often caught off guard by the burst of energy that she unleashes when wielding her Love Sword. Her attacks are a combination of swift movements and calculated strikes, leaving little room for error. It’s not just her sword that makes her a formidable opponent, though – it’s also her ability to read her opponent’s moves and counter them with lightning-fast reflexes.

Despite the challenges of wielding such a unique weapon, Mitsuri’s dedication and determination have made her one of the strongest warriors in the Demon Slayer Corps. Her skills, combined with her love for her comrades and the desire to protect the innocent, make her a force to be reckoned with.
