Story of Genya Shinazugawa

Genya came from a family of nine with a hard-working mother who never slept and a deadbeat father who occasionally beat her despite her weak constitution – including the children.

Some time later, Sanemi learned that their father had been stabbed to death and made a vow with Genya to protect their siblings and mother.

One day, their mother had disappeared and did not return until daybreak. As suspicion and worry began to creep into the minds of the children, alone and unprotected, a loud rattling sound was heard from their door which they assumed was their mother but was instead a demon who immediately killed 5 of the 7 children and marked Genya.

Giving Genya no time to escape, the demon soon came for Genya but was interrupted by Sanemi and later went into battle with him and told him to “Run for it!”

Soon after, Genya went to call a doctor for his injured siblings but he soon came across Sanemi who had held the demon at bay and killed him with the help of the sun but was unprepared as the demon that attacked his family was none other than his mother. Very confused by what happened, Genya panicked and chose to blame Sanemi and call him a murderer for killing their mother and made himself believe that it was a wolf that attacked instead. family.

Later in his life, Genya realized his mistake and tried to reconcile his relationship with his brother. He trained to become a Demon Slayer, but he was unable to use the Breathing Styles. However, he discovered that he could eat demons and gain demonic abilities. It was discovered by the rock pillar Gyomei Himejima. Since Genya couldn’t use the Breaths, Gyomei didn’t make it his Tsuguko, but decided to train him anyway. At one point he met Sanemi and tried to apologize but Sandmi refused to call him telling him he doesn’t have a brother. With that, Genya decided to become a Pillar in order to establish a bond with his brother.

Personality of Genya Shinazugawa

Genya is a rude and moody individual; a “lone wolf” who refused all help from others and showed no interest in being polite or having manners. During the final selection, he brutally treated Kanata Ubuyashiki by grabbing her by the hair and shouting at her when she was a child. His bad temper and cheeky way of speaking is very similar to that of his older brother, Sanemi.

He became more open to cooperation during the battle against Hantengu, a high-ranking demon, where he worked alongside Tanjiro Kamado, Mitsuri Kanroji, and Nezuko Kamado. After a while, he learned to become more sociable and less rude to others, especially Tanjiro and his friends.

Sanemi’s refusal to acknowledge Genya also made him insecure, as he realized how weak he is compared to his companions. Nonetheless, he did everything he could to help his allies, even if it horribly maimed him in the process. Despite his brother’s harsh reprimands, he didn’t hold a grudge against him, a belief reinforced by Tanjiro and eventually by Sanemi himself.

Abilities and Powers of Genya Shinazugawa

Demonic Transformation: By eating a demon, Genya can temporarily gain demonic attributes from it. Depending on his strength, he can gain regeneration and physical strength equal to one. In this form, Genya was able to overpower Aizetsu briefly. Later, after consuming the wood created by Zouhakuten, Genya had enough strength and speed to throw 3 trees in rapid succession.

Top Rank 4 Empowerment: After consuming the wood created by Zohakuten, Genya had enough strength and speed to throw 3 trees in quick succession. In his fight against Kokushibo, the full extent of his demonization by eating the flesh of the upper Rank 4 can be seen, and despite Kokushibo’s vicious bifurcations on his abdomen and the amputation of both of his arms, he is still not not dead, which shows that, like a true demon, Genya could no longer be killed except by decapitation.

Empowerment: By eating Kokushibo’s hair, Genya’s demonic abilities were further enhanced, as seen when he managed to reattach his severed body in mere seconds and is even able to intercept the telepathic communication from Muzan Kibutsuji. By eating a piece of Upper Rank’s Flesh Sword, Genya even began to take on many of Upper Rank 1’s physical features, such as his eyes and hair. Later, it is shown that even when bifurcated and having half of his head cut cleanly in half, Genya is not only still alive and conscious, but he still possesses the strength to activate his Blood Demon Arts. . However, succumbing to his severe injuries, Genya looks like a real demon, disintegrated into ashes.

Flesh Gun: Genya has shown the ability to detach his cells and fuse them with his weapon. The weapon has the same features as Kokushibo’s sword, namely it has multiple eyes on the top of the barrel and muzzle, which likely increases its accuracy and power.

Mark of the Demon Slayer: Genya also had access to the Mark of the Demon Slayer of the Higher Grade, which was in the form of a flame-shaped tattoo on the right side of his forehead, which no doubt also increased all his physical and mental abilities.

Blood Demon Art: Having eaten the flesh and cells of at least two high-ranking officers (Kokushibo and Hantengu), Genya appears to have developed his own blood demon art while in the midst of battle against the high-ranking officer 1. Just like Nezuko’s blood demon art, Genya’s was also designed to fight and damage other demons.

Wood Flesh Bullets: By eating the cells of Upper Rank 1 and Upper Rank 4, Genya had developed a unique technique where he fused his demon-turned cells with his bullets and Sunsteel Rifle, which when fired, the direction and speed of the bullets could be freely manipulated by Genya to easily maneuver around obstacles between the bullet and the intended target, as seen when his bullets travel around Kokushibo’s sword, burrowing directly into his flesh. Once inside its target, the bullets can immediately transform into a gigantic tree similar to that formed by the Tree Creatures of the Upper Fourth Tier Zou Hakuten, then entangle and wrap around the intended target, paralyzing them.

Blood Roots: Genya could further modify his flesh balls by having them root in his target and suck the blood of demons inside their body, preventing them from activating their own blood demon art.
