Saburo | Demon Slayer Kimetsu No Yaiba
Saburo (三さぶ郎ろう Saburō?) is a villager from the village next to Tanjiro’s.
Saburo has curly hair. He has an oblong forehead and bright brown eyes without distinct pupils.
Saburo has an acute discernment. He also shows sincerity to young Tanjiro, agreeing to give him his own house to rest in for a night, as he believes that man-eating demons come out at night and that it would be dangerous to travel.
Abilities and powers
As an ordinary human, Saburo has no additional powers or abilities.
Not much is known about Saburo’s past, except that his family was killed by man-eating demons.
Final Selection Arc
Saburo sees Tanjiro Kamado coming back to the mountain and as the night falls, he invites him to spend the night at his house, because the demons can appear in the night. Tanjiro refuses at first, but Saburo manages to convince him. A little later, while Tanjiro is having dinner, Saburo explains him that demons come out at night and that he would have been eaten, so it is better to go to the mountain in the morning. Before going to sleep, Tanjiro asks if demons can enter houses, to which Saburo confirms that they can, but the great spirit hunters kill demons for them. Tanjiro is skeptical and thinks that Saburo might just be lonely because he lives alone after his family died in an incident. In the morning, as the sunrise illuminates the whole snowy forest, Tanjiro leaves Saburo’s house and goes home.
Sunrise Countdown Arc
After their recovery, Tanjiro and Nezuko go back home with Zenitsu and Inosuke. As they reach the foot of the mountain, they meet Saburo in front of his house and run to him crying. Saburo and the Kamado siblings shed tears as they share an embrace on the ground.
