After all, the Flame Hashira, Kyojuro Rengoku, dies at the end of Demon Slayer? At the end of the first season of Demon Slayer, we see Tanjiro, Inosuke, and Zenitsu complete their rehabilitation at the Butterfly Mansion. They were sent on a mission, along with Nezuko, on a Mugen Train. There, more than 40 passengers had suddenly disappeared.
Therefore, the three should investigate these disappearances while, at the same time, providing assistance to the Flame Hashira, Kyojuro Rengoku. As for Tanjiro, during the mission, he must identify the unique power he has within him. And for that, he seeks Rengoku’s advice.
The Flame Hashira had an interesting and short development throughout the film, in the same way, its appearance. So, a common question has been asked.
Did the Flame Hashira, Kyojuro Rengoku, died in the series?
The answer is yes. The Hashira of Flames really dies in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba series. To be exact, it happened during the Mugen Train Arc, which has been turned into an animated film titled Mugen Train: The Movie. Rengoku proved to be a very nice person in relation to his duties and this certainly contributed to the fact that he became a fan favorite so quickly.
It is also worth remembering that, unfortunately, the Hashira of Flames, in addition to being an absurd Swordsman, never had the opportunity to explore its limits.
Kyojuro Rengoku’s Final Words
After Akaza flees the battlefield, Tanjiro is shouting how cowardly the demon was. In the meantime, while Rengoku was taking a deep breath, he asks Tanjiro to come to him. Rengoku then suggests that Tanjiro goes to his family’s home, where he can find some information about “Hinokami Kagura”.
Rengoku’s father had some books written by a former Hashira of the Flames. This information puts Tanjiro on a new path, where he goes to get new information about his techniques related to fire. Thus, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba sets up the second season of the series.
