Mitsuri Kanroji ( (かん) () () (みつ) () Kanroji Mitsuri?) is a Demon Hunter and the Love Pillar of the Demon Killing Corps.[3]


Mitsuri has light green eyes, light skin, and pink hair that fades into a neon green color towards the ends. She is also rather big breasted, and keeps the breast area of her uniform unbuttoned to accommodate her chest size. When she was trying to get married, she dyed her hair black to look normal.

She usually wears a modified Demon Hunter uniform with a long white jacket over it and wears a short skirt instead of the usual hakama. She also wears navy blue thigh-high socks that are covered with green knee-high socks with stripes; along with pink-laced footwear. When at the Swordsmith Village she wore a kimono with floral designs.


Mitsuri is a very emotional and passionate person. She is soft and kind; constantly complimenting people in her mind which most likely relates to her being called 'The Pillar of Love.' She is easily flustered and can’t take insults very well.

She is also desperate for marriage. However she wants to find a man who’s stronger than her which is difficult because she’s ridiculously strong. But in the face of demons that are unnaturally evil, she shows no mercy, but expresses such sentiments with a gentle yet passionate tone. Though she is kind to every person, she seems to have a close bond with Obanai Iguro; as they are often seen together.


Mitsuri was born with an unnatural strength and a strange hair color. She was seen as a freak and was rejected from being married because of these attribute. She was judged by her mother for not being able to be married, and dyed her hair to fit in more with other girls. Though she was still rejected for being clingy to her bethrothed.

She then encountered Kagaya Ubuyashiki who told her to reject normalcy and embrace who she was. Because of this encounter she joined the Demon Hunters and used her skill and ridiculous strength to rise to the status of Pillar. She also adopted an idea that she would find a man stronger than her to marry. This didn't work out because of the fact she was much stronger and more skilled than most of her fellow members, with the exception of her fellow Pillars.


Natagumo Mountain Arc

Mitsuri was present with her fellow Pillars when Kamado Tanjiro awoke.[4] She thought about how wonderful the other Pillars actions. She also voted to let Tanjiro and his sister leave and live.

Functional Recovery Training Arc

Kochou Shinobu noted that Tanjiro was on trial, while Mitsuri thought about the potential killing of Kamado Nezuko with trepidation. When Obanai Iguro demanded to know what punishment Tomioka Giyuu would get for his role in their subordinate's mistake, Mitsuri praised his persistence, as well as Giyuu's aloofness. Later, she questioned whether or not they should make a decision in Tanjiro's trial without Oyakata-sama's input, suggesting they wait until he arrived. Shortly thereafter, she praised Shinazugawa Sanemi's increase in scars and Shinobu's sternness with the former's actions. The Love Pillar's expression of praise quickly turned to horror as Sanemi stabbed Nezuko, but just as quickly turned to mirth when Tanjiro headbutted the former, much to her mortification.[5]

Demon Train Arc

When Mitsuri got the news of Kyojuro’s death, she had a face of horror and shock.
