Inosuke may not have been welcome at the Blacksmiths’ Village, and there’s a good reason for that.
One of the features of Demon Slayer that fans like the most are the peculiarities that present the personality of several of its secondary characters which include the Pillars themselves as well as Tanjiro’s companions. Among them, one of the most surprising since his first appearance was inosuke.
Inosuke Hashibira is a talented swordsman raised among wild animals and that is precisely what leads him to have unpredictable and impulsive behaviors that often attract attention wherever you go and that they do not end up being well seen by some characters such as the smith himself of their swords: Kozo Kanamori.
Inosuke, hated by the smith himself of his swords
Inosuke’s savagery is also present in the treatment of his two swords, which look worn and even though they are new swords Inosuke himself tries to dull their edges by hitting them with rocks to achieve jagged edges, completely deteriorating the craftsmanship behind these weapons.
We saw this in a scene from the first season and clashes head-on with the perfectionism shown by blacksmiths of the Demon Slayer when forging the weapons, angering any blacksmith who appreciates their work.
Inosuke and Zenitsu are not present in the third season of Demon Slayer, and may In the case of Inosuke, it was a good idea not to be in the Blacksmiths’ Village due to the great cult that this trade has among its inhabitants. In exchange for the absence of both we have the presence of Genya, who has shown to keep several secrets in his combat skills.
Demon Slayer is at its peak after a final chapter focused on Mitsuri Kanroji’s confrontation against the most powerful clone of Hantengu, Zohakuten. In addition to showing all his defensive and offensive abilities granted by his peculiar weapon We were also able to see the past of the Pillar of Love, somewhat further removed from the drama that surrounds Tokito’s but necessary for Mitsuri to get enough motivation to increase his power by activating his own Hunter’s Mark.
