Read Ahead…

The story takes place in the” Tashiro Era. During that era, the whole country of Japan was under the threat of demons whose terror had been going on for centuries. Well, the demons were half immortals as they could survive for centuries. Those demons had three weaknesses – decapitating their head with the Nichirin swords, injecting poison extracted from wisteria flowers, and exposure to the sun.

To fight against the demons, there was a secret society known as The Demon Slayer Crops, whose aim was to wipe out every Demon from the world. Amidst all this chaos, our protagonist Tanjiro Kamado lives with his family in the mountains. After the death of Tanjiro’s father, he becomes the sole breadwinner of this family.

The young boy travels down the mountain to sell charcoal in the nearby village. One fine day after returning from his work, Tanjiro discovers that his family has been slaughtered by a demon. Tanjiro, along with his Demon sister Nezuko (who was the sole survivor of the massacre but unfortunately turns into a demon), sets on a journey to take revenge on the Demon who slaughtered his family and, most importantly, to turn his sister back into a human.

There’s More…

Moving forward, Tanjiro joins The Demon Slayer Crops, where he further learns about the strength and weaknesses of each Demon and the mastermind who is behind all of this terror, Muzan Kibutsuji.

That was all about the plot of the anime. Now let us take a look at our hero Inosuke Hashibira.

Inosuke Hashibira is another protagonist and the travel companion of Tanjiro Kamado along with Zenitsu Agatsuma. He is another member of The Demon Slayer Crops. Inosuke is an extremely short-tempered, loud mouth and proud man. And he is seen constantly showing off his strength and challenging most of the people he crosses his path. Inosuke also has a problem pronouncing his comrades’ names.

Many times in the show, we have witnessed him pronouncing absurd names of Tanjiro’s. Inosuke is an orphan whose mother died while protecting him from a demon. He was raised by a family of boars. As he was raised by the boars, Inosuke had a little trouble understanding human interaction. However, as the story progressed, we saw new growth in Inosuke, especially with his fighting style and his relation with his fellow comrades.

Growing up in the mountains and living with the boars, Inosuke developed some of his natural talents. He developed a sharp and sensitive sense of touch that he could even feel a small vibration in the air. And he is extremely flexible and could easily dislocate any joints in his body. He also developed a resistance to poison.

Inosuke is also extremely talented. Compared to the rest of his comrades, Inosuke developed his own breathing technique, ‘Beast Breathing’. With his breathing techniques and natural abilities, Inosuke could pinpoint his enemy’s exact location giving him an edge in his fighting. Inosuke is the only one who wields a dual Nichirin sword with a jagged edge.

If you are still curious about this character, then don’t worry. We got it all covered. Here is a list of some of the famous quotes of Inosuke Hashibira, which will definitely make you laugh, cry, and at the same time, be inspired as well.

After defeating the Demon, which was residing in the Tsuzumi Mansion, Tanjiro, along with his fellow companions Zenitsu and Inosuke, are ordered to visit the house of the Fuji Family to heal their wounds and injuries that they have sustained from the battle with the Demon. Inosuke has trouble understanding human affection, which is why on their way, he constantly shouts at Tanjiro and challenges him to a duel fight. He also has trouble pronouncing other people’s names. On their way, his constant shout and wrong pronunciation not only irks Tanjiro but the resting Zenitsu as well.

2. “When you lose to someone smaller than you, It destroys your soul.” -Inosuke Hashibira

Tanjiro, Zenitsu, and Inosuke are admitted into the Butterfly mansion for their speedy and full recovery. Their bodies have been severely wounded and sustained many injuries during the fight with lower rank 5 moon demon Rui. As a part of their recovery routine, all three members had to fight with the girls. They may look small but were able to up a tough competition with them. A proud warrior who claims to be the best feels a little bit heartbroken as his ego has been destroyed.

3. “ I’m the king of mountains. Nice to meet you .. God of festivals.” -Inosuke Hashibira

Let’s jump into season 2, where we are introduced to our sound pillar Uzui Tengen. Not only is he powerful, but he also adores his flashiest side. He is flamboyant and is not afraid to face off an upper-rank moon demon. As Tengen introduces himself in front of the trio as the God of festivals, our proud warrior Inosuke who won’t take a step back, presents himself as the King of Mountains.

4. “She walks so slow. She’d get killed in a second in the mountains.” -Inosuke Hashibira

Dressed undercover as girls, the trio, along with Tengen, roams around the Entertainment District with the aim that the three of them get placed into the three designated houses to find the whereabouts of Tengen’s wives. While waiting outside, they witness the procession of the highest ranking courtesan, ‘Oiran’. While the others were impressed by her slow walk, Inosuke judged her movement, saying that if she walked at such a slow pace in the mountains, she could get killed easily.

5. “What the hell is this creature? The master of this land! The ruler of this land.” -Inosuke Hashibira

Now let’s go back to season one. In the last episode, the trio is entrusted with the mission to visit the Mugen Train and provide assistance to the fire pillar, Rengoku. Living in the mountains where he was raised by a family of boars, Inosuke is astounded when he notices the humongous train standing before him. Completely unaware of the purpose of a train, he claims that thing to be the master and ruler of the land.

6. “Maybe you should stay asleep the whole time.” -Inosuke Hashibira

After rescuing Tengen’s wives and the rest of the courtesans who were trapped inside the belt of Daki, Tengen, along with Zenitsu and Inosuke, make their way to help Tanjiro, who was engaged in a fight with upper rank 6 moon demon Daki. While fighting with Daki, Inosuke is struggling with her attacks, whereas Zenitsu (whose strength emerges while he is asleep) single-handedly fights off the attacks. Witnessing his companion’s ability, Inosuke amusingly gives a compliment.

7. “Three of us together can beat her.” -Inosuke Hashibira

Struggling with the attacks of Daki, Inosuke motivates his partners that if they coordinated their attacks, they could easily behead her. While Tanjiro and Zenitsu were defending him, Inosuke solely focused his attention on his attack. The three of them coordinated each of their breathing styles to boast their confidence and behead Daki.

8. “Stop that crying. And you snap out of it, for crying out loud. We’re gonna train now!” -Inosuke Hashibira

The spectacular fight between Rengoku (fire pillar) and Akaza (upper moon rank 3 demons) ends with the death of Rengoku. The boys who developed a great respect for their seniors suffer a great emotional setback as they witness the final moments of the fire pillar. As the boys sit there and cry, Inosuke, who is sobbing hysterically, tries to motivate them by getting them to train. His false bravado fails as he fails his arms sporadically. He realizes that to get stronger, they need more training and discipline.

9. “It truly is a miracle, meeting you here. The Demon who killed my mother and my friends is right before my eyes! Allow me to thank you for making me remember, but I won’t just cut off your head now! I’ll show you what true hell is like!” -Inosuke Hashibira

Spoiler Alert! (If you haven’t read the manga, then you may skip this part and if you’re too curious, then enjoy yourselves)

During the Infinity Castle Arc, Kanao and Inosuke are up against the upper rank 2 moon demon Doma. Before their fight, Doma reminds him about his mother and reveals that she is his prey. He casually disrespects his mother’s name, which fills Inosuke with rage and thus, the fight begins. He showcases his vengeful side while fighting with Doma. With the help of Kanao, Inosuke was able to successfully defeat the Demon.

10. “We’re comrades and like brothers, so if someone starts to stray from the path, we all stop him. No matter how hard or painful it is, we walk the right path.” -Inosuke Hashibira

(Another spoiler alert!)

At the infinity castle arc, all other demons were defeated except for the mastermind Muzan. He injects his blood into Tanjiro’s body which results in the transformation of Tanjiro into a powerful demon who easily conquered the sun. Each person tries their level best to stop the transformation. Inosuke, who had a major character growth by now, shouted at Tanjiro and motivated him that he shouldn’t stray off from his path. He displays his affection towards his comrades and is now ready to go to any lengths to save them.
