Ever since its first episode aired, the series became an instant hit. Praised was given to its faced paced plot and its stunning animation. Even though the plot had nothing new to offer, fans lapped it up and begged for more. This article will discuss 10 little known facts about the series' protagonist. Be warned - this article has manga spoilers ahead! Despite empathy being a defining trait of many male shounen protagonists, Tanjiro takes his empathy too far sometimes. While it is good to be kind to people, Tanjiro is often seen sympathizing with demons and hesitating to attack them, as a result of which he has often been taken advantage of, both emotionally and in the battlefield.
He is a Kanoe-ranked member of the Demon Slayer Corps , who joined for the sake of hunting down the one responsible for the murder of his family and his sister 's transformation into a Demon. Tanjiro is a young man with rather tanned skin and an athletic physique. He also has a scar on the top left of his forehead, which he received when he protected his younger brother from a falling brazier. Tanjiro looks remarkably similar in appearance to his ancestor Sumiyoshi , possessing the same facial structure, eyes, and hairstyle as him, although Sumiyoshi's hair was longer, about shoulder-length and would be tied in a ponytail behind his head. He also wears a distinct pair of hanafuda earrings, with the image of a white-and-red flower. His hair is also kept tied back in small ponytail or bun; as he trains with Sabito and Makomo , his hair grows to his shoulders. During the Final Selection, Tanjiro wears a blue, cloud-patterned jinbei-styled kimono and black pants, nearly identical to Sakonji's outfit. He still wears his hanafuda earrings, but his hair is cut extremely short and remains the same length since. Similar to the rest of the apprentices that were trained under Sakonji, Tanjiro wears a hand-carved fox mask crafted from his master on the left side of his head. During his second encounter with Muzan Kibutsuji , he injures his right eye in the Infinity Castle.
