    Who Are The Hashira?

    The Hashira are the pillars of defense against humans. They are at the top of the hierarchy of the demon slayer corps and they are the sole reason behind the functioning of the organization. The only people that the Hashira bow down to are the heads of the Ubuyashiki family. 

    The Hashira are essentially the strongest swordsmen in the corps. A demon slayer can become a Hashira after he has killed over 50 demons or if they defeat a member of the 12 Kizuki. Another way to become a Hashira is to become a Tsuguko. Kanao was Shinobu’s Tsuguko, which meant that after Shinobu died, Kanao would take her place as the insect Hashira. 

    Each Hashira has a distinct breathing style. Whilst there is no required breathing style to become a Hashira, the fire breathing style and the water breathing style users have always been a part of the Hashira. The Hashira are given a specific region to patrol. They have to make sure that their assigned region stays demon-free and that everyone is safe. They also do not engage in combat unless the demon is so strong that no other demon slayer can defeat it.

    After a very long and hard battle between the demon slayer and the demons, humanity finally won. Kibutsuji Muzan was killed by sunlight and Kamado Nezuko was turned into a human. However, despite this major win, sadness surrounded the slayers. Many of the demon slayers and Hashira lost their lives in the battle. 

    Shinazugawa Genya lost his life and so did Tamayo. In addition to that, the majority of the Hashira lost their lives. Muichiro Tokito, Shinobu Kocho, Gyomei Himejima, Obanai Iguro, and Mitsuri Kanroji lost their lives in the battle. Rengoku was killed by Akaza during the Mugen train arc. Therefore, at the end of the series, only three Hashira were left alive. 

    After the entertainment district arc, Uzui lost his arm and couldn’t fight in the final battle. Shinazugawa Sanemi and Tomioka Giyuu were the only two Hashira who survived the entire ordeal. In addition to Zenitsu, Inosuke, Nesuko, and Tanjiro, they are the only ones who survived. In the end, the Demon Slayer Corps was also disbanded. A member of the Ubuyashiki family told both of them that since the threat of demons was destroyed, there was no need for the demon slayer corps.
