Tanjiro and the other Demon Slayers seem pretty young to travel around Japan and slay the most powerful monsters. But it's common for shonen characters to go on such dangerous adventures even at such young ages. Most people wouldn't dream of facing a bloodthirsty monster or fighting in an intense battle. Their personal growth is relatable to teenagers their age, allowing them to see themselves in at least one of the characters. Gyomei is not only the oldest-26 years old, to be exact-but the tallest out of the Hashira and the main cast. His appearance may be intimidating, but he's a lot gentler than people think. Gyomei keeps to himself most of the time, usually spending time with his prayer beads. However, he's very aware of his surroundings as a Demon Slayer and ready to fight at a moment's notice. The Sound Hashira is the second oldest out of the main Demon Slayer cast. Tengen's uniqueness shows in both his dress and personality, but he can still hold his own as a Hashira. At 23, his extensive shinobi experience carries into his work for the Demon Slayer Corps. Tengen is actually married to three kunoichi, for those who may not know.
And he's barely in his twenties. For someone only 21 years of age, Sanemi has a lot of pent-up anger, but his hatred for demons is justified. Despite his age, one could mistake Sanemi for a teenager with too foul of a mouth and too short a temper. But his bark is just as bad as his bite. As a member of the Hashira, Sanemi's Wind Breathing is as fierce as his sharp tongue. His eagerness to kill demons is frightening to a fault, and he makes sure everyone knows it. Like Sanemi, Obanai is also 21 but older by just two months. The two are similar in personality, dismissive and cold. However, unlike Sanemi who is hot-headed and rash, Obanai is a by-the-book individual, taking the Demon Slayer code seriously. He's strict and sticks to the code, and he expects other Demon Slayers and Hashira to follow suit. Obanai doesn't hesitate to demand more of his colleagues, even if his expectations are above and beyond unrealistic. These principles cause some tension between his fellow Hashira, for it seems like he's questioning their devotion to the Demon Slayer Corps. Affectionately dubbed "Big Brother," Kyojuro significantly impacts Tanjiro, Inosuke, and Zenitsu in such a short space of time. He becomes the older brother figure the three never realized they needed. At his death, the Flame Hashira is 20 years old.
Mitsuri ultimately adapted the form into Love Breathing to adapt to her fighting capabilities.
Taking Akaza head-on, he suffers from multiple grave injuries. However, he still accomplishes his goal: he effectively protects all Mugen Train passengers and his fellow Demon Slayer subordinates. Tanjiro holds great respect for Kyojuro even after his death and seeks to follow his advice. Despite being a year younger than Kyojuro, Mitsuri still shares a bond with the Flame Hashira. The two had a disciple-teacher relationship, with Kyojuro teaching her Fire Breathing. Mitsuri ultimately adapted the form into Love Breathing to adapt to her fighting capabilities. Unlike the other Hashira, she's more reserved and soft-spoken, keeping her opinions in her head. However, Mitsuri's still a caring, well-liked person, befitting her title as the Love Hashira. Out of the nine Hashira, Giyu is considered the strongest Hashira at just 19 years old. He's calm and composed but ruthless when he needs to be; there are even times when his stoic disposition will slip when he's angry or stressed. Giyu sees potential in Tanjiro, surprised to see him vehemently begging to spare his demon sister. He grows attached to him and watches over his growth as a Demon Slayer. Giyu does have a light-hearted side, mainly when he's exchanging banter with Shinobu. She knows just the right words to get under his skin. At just 18 years of age, Shinobu is the second youngest Hashira. Her demeanor may come off as childlike and even eerily cheerful, but she does what she can to hold herself together.
Like Sanemi, Shinobu has an intense hatred for demons after losing her sister, Kanae, and their parents. There are times when her cheerfulness mixes with mischievous or even sadistic teasing here and there. However, Shinobu still cares deeply for her fellow Hashira and inexperienced Demon Slayers like Tanjiro and the others. It may be to carry on Kanae's legacy. Surprisingly, Zenitsu is the oldest compared to Tanjiro, Nezuko, and Inosuke. What's even more surprising is that even at 16 years old, his cowardly nature makes him seem like the youngest out of the four. Unlike Tanjiro, who serves as the older brother figure, Zenitsu is an easily-scared crybaby who can't seem to keep it together. His horrendously low self-esteem contrasts with his excellent fighting skills, but no one seems to be able to boost his confidence. There are times when Zenitsu will step up to protect those he cares about; most of the time, it's Nezuko when she doesn't exactly need his protection. Tanjiro is the youngest of Zenitsu and Inosuke, but he remains the most mature.
At 14, just a year younger than Tanjiro and Inosuke, Nezuko is very much the baby out of the four.
Due to his position as the oldest child of his family, it's natural for Tanjiro to care for people, even if his friends are older than him. The boar-headed warrior is a reckless and short-tempered 15-year-old, always looking for his next opponent. Inosuke is Zenitsu's polar opposite, which frustrates them both to no end. He doesn't hesitate to attack anyone he deems a challenge, or that angers him, even if it may seem dangerous or even stupid. If Tanjiro isn't trying to make peace between them, Inosuke is usually looking for his newest battle, with a mentally exhausted Zenitsu in tow. At 14, just a year younger than Tanjiro and Inosuke, Nezuko is very much the baby out of the four. She's also the youngest of the main cast. Nezuko's short stature may help confuse her for much younger; her wide eyes and small features make her look more childlike. Her shrinking and growing abilities also contribute to this. These powers developed when she became a demon, allowing her to fit into the wooden box Tanjiro carries around. At just 14 years old, Muichiro made a place for himself amongst the nine Hashira. Much to fans' surprise, he's the same age as Nezuko, a year younger than Tanjiro and Inosuke and two years younger than Zenitsu. He's quiet and seems airheaded, but no one should underestimate his abilities. Muichiro is a child prodigy who can hold his own as a Demon Slayer, reaching the Hashira position after two months of training. For now, he's the only Mist Breathing user and has excellent proficiency in the form; he managed to create an entirely new form on his own.
The Quintessential Quintuplets (Japanese:, Hepburn: Go-Tōbun no Hanayome, lit. Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Negi Haruba. It was serialized in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine from August 2017 to February 2020, with its chapters collected into fourteen tankōbon volumes. The series follows the daily life of a high school student Futaro Uesugi, who is hired as a private tutor for a group of identical quintuplets: Ichika, Nino, Miku, Yotsuba, and Itsuki Nakano. At the very beginning of the story, it is shown that the events are being told in a flashback, while an adult Futaro prepares to marry one of the Nakano Quintuplets whose identity is only revealed near the end of the series. The series is published in English by Kodansha USA under the Kodansha Comics imprint. The anime series is licensed in North America under a Crunchyroll-Funimation partnership. An anime television series adaptation produced by Tezuka Productions aired from January to March 2019 on TBS and other channels. The series is a commercial success, being the 5th best-selling manga in 2019, and the 3rd best-selling manga in the first half of 2020 in Japan. In 2019, the manga won the award for the shnen category at the 43rd annual Kodansha Manga Awards. High school student Futaro Uesugi is an academically gifted student that leads a difficult life-his mother has died, he has no friends, and on top of all that, his father has incurred a large amount of debt. An opportunity presents itself when the rich Nakano family transfers to his school.
Futaro is promptly hired as a highly paid tutor. However, much to Futaro's dismay, he discovers that his five charges-identical quintuplet sisters of varied personalities-have no interest in studying at all and have abysmal grades. Some of the quintuplets are against having Futaro, whom they view as a stranger, in their apartment, but Futaro's diligent tenacity gradually convinces those girls to accept him and to improve their grades. Throughout the series, Futaro develops special relationships with each of the quintuplets. Through a flashforward, it is revealed that he eventually marries one of them, but her true identity is only revealed near the end of the series. The idea of "a group of quintuplets falling in love with the same person" existed even before the serialization of Haruba's previous work, Karma of Purgatory (2014-2015), but was very simple at that time. The idea was denied by his editor-in-charge. A year after, after the end of Karma of Purgatory, he discussed with his editor-in-charge what to serialize next.

Among the few ideas being come up with, the "quintuplets" idea was included again, which was accepted by the editor this time. After failures in two to three serialization committees, finally, it was decided to have a one-shot manga published first. The one-shot received positive reviews and therefore went on to serialization. It was decided the protagonist should be quintuplets at the very beginning. When later the idea of quadruplets and sextuplets was raised, it was rejected very quickly, around 30 seconds. Haruba said it might be a reference to Super Sentai when he came up with this idea. Similar to Super Sentai, Ichika (yellow), Nino (black), Miku (blue), Yotsuba (green), and Itsuki (red) are all represented by a color. The design of the quintuplets started from his favorite existing female characters from "some slice-of-life works only with girls", around 15 to 20 of them. The idea of adding numbers in their names was after the design was almost confirmed.
The hair color of the Nakano quintuplets is different when being colored, which was suggested by Haruba himself, such that they are more distinguishable from each other. The hair color of the bride in the flashforward is, therefore, a colour-in-between. The flashforward showing that Futaro will eventually marry only one of the Nakano quintuplets was added in order to eliminate the possibility of Futaro marrying all five of them. It was also decided that all quintuplets would have negative feelings towards Futaro from the beginning, because Haruba wanted to write how their relationships improved from hate to love in the story, except Yotsuba, who acts as Futaro's guide for the development of the story. While it is often the norm for harem romantic comedy manga to have sexualized depictions of characters, Haruba has said that he tried to avoid this to some extent after Vol. In his opinion, showing panties which are being worn, ie To keep the characters interesting, the sexy scenes were intended by him to be ambiguous but not straightforward, leading to readers' imagination. The swimsuit appearance of the Nakanos was finally revealed in Ep.
92 as Haruba thought an episode of swimsuits should exist before finishing the story. The Quintessential Quintuplets is written and illustrated by Negi Haruba. Before the serialization, a one-shot manga of the same name had been published in 2017 issue 8 of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine on August 9, 2017, and received positive comments. On December 4, 2019, Haruba announced that the series would end on its 14th tankōbon volume. The series finished on February 19, 2020, with a total of 122 chapters. The series has been published in English by Kodansha USA under their Kodansha Comics imprint digitally since June 28, 2018, with a line of physical releases beginning publication on January 1, 2019. By August 2020 and July 2021 respectively, all fourteen volumes have been published digitally and physically. In October 2017, a television commercial for the manga was released where Ayane Sakura voiced all five girls. The series is directed by Satoshi Kuwabara and written by Keiichirō chi, featuring animation by Tezuka Productions, character designs by Michinosuke Nakamura and Gagakuga, and music by Natsumi Tabuchi, Hanae Nakamura, and Miki Sakurai. The series aired from January 10 to March 28, 2019 on the TBS, SUN, and BS-TBS channels. The series ran for 12 episodes. Crunchyroll streamed the series with Funimation providing the English dub as it airs. Although Tezuka Productions was the main animation studio behind the series, TBS producer Junichirou Tanaka stated that he asked for help from Shaft president Mitsutoshi Kubota for assistance in producing the series' 11th episode. It was ultimately decided that the studio would be outsourced to for the entire episode save for the episode's storyboards, which were drawn by series director Satoshi Kuwabara; however, all other animation, coloring, and compositing aspects of the episode were produced entirely at Shaft.
