Para Giyu Tomioka

Kagaya Ubuyashiki, the head of the Demon Slayer Corp, ordered Shinobu and Giyu Tomioka, the Corp's Hashira, to go to Natagumo Mountain to support the members who are fighting one of the 12 Demon Moons. Shinobu seems to want to befriend the demons of this line. However, this thought came from her sister Kanae. Shinobu tried to follow Kanae's mind after a demon killed his beloved sister, although Shinobu hated demons. Shinobu's genuine respect and love for her sister must have made her say that phrase.

Para Zenitsu Agatsuma

Zenitsu Agatsuma was poisoned and placed on a wooden house, almost dead after fighting Rui's demon brother, one of the 12 moon demons. Unable to move, he tried to use his breathing technique to prevent the poison from spreading through his body. As she was about to pass out, Shinobu flew to her side and asked if she was alright. Obviously he wasn't feeling well, but since she asked casually, it was just for her.


Good evening.
It's a beautiful moon tonight, isn't it?

Good evening
The moon is beautiful today

For Rui's sister

Shinobu found Rui's demon sister on Mount Natagumo and addressed her very politely. Who else would talk to a target to kill like that in the middle of a life-or-death struggle? Shinobu is like that.


I'm the only assassin who can't cut off the head of the demon in Hashira
but I am a great person who made poisons to kill demons.

I'm the only swordsman among the pillars who can't cut a demon's throat.
He is an amazing person who created a poison that can kill demons.

Watashi ha Hashira no naka de yuiitsu oni no kubi ga kirenai kenshi desuga,

For Rui's sister

When Shinobu spoke to Rui's sister, the demon girl first tried to attack her. Then she felt Shinobu's strength and began begging him to let her go. Shinobu asked Rui's sister how many people she had eaten so far. The demon girl replied "5", but Shinobu said that was a lie. She said, "You must have eaten at least 80 people to your power," and suggested, "I'll let you go, but you'll have to pay for what you did."

His suggestion was that the demon had to endure as much torture as the innocent people he was devouring, like gouging out their eyes and organs, or else their souls could not be saved. Madam Hashira also said quietly: “Don't worry, young man. you are a demon You won't die.” Rui's sister got angry and attacked her, but Shinobu quickly found her with insect breath. It was too quick for the demon to realize what had happened. Immediately the demon girl touched her neck and she trembled. She was relieved that she wasn't cut off. But suddenly she began to suffer and fell down. Shinobu turned to the demon and said the line. She poisoned the demon instead of cutting off its head.


oh excuse me
You're already dead and can't hear me.
I totally forgot.

oh, I am sorry
I can't hear you anymore because I'm dead
i am careless

For Rui's brother

After the above line, Shinobu smiled and said this line. It's Shinobu again! Shinobu is too small to cut off the demons' heads, so she uses poisons to kill them.


That's why everyone hates you.

Para Giyu Tomioka

Shinobu found Nezuko and tried to kill her because Nezuko was a demon. But Giyu, who knew Tanjiro and Nezuko before, had them covered. Even if Shinobu doesn't know what happened in the past, this sentence is bitter for Giyu!

Para Tanjiro Kamado

After fighting Rui's family, Tanjiro and other Demon Slayers went to Cho Yashiki, Shinobu's house, for medical treatment and training. One night, Tanjiro was meditating on Cho Yashiki's rooftop and Shinobu came to talk to him. Tanjiro asked her if she was angry. He said he could smell her anger all the time, although she always kept the smile on her face. She admitted she was angry since her sister was killed by a demon.

His sister had a kind mind like Tanjiro and sympathized with demons all the time. He felt sorry for them even as he lay dying. Shinobu couldn't feel that way, but he thought he should follow his sister's thoughts. She was trying to find a way not to have to kill pity demons and keep the smile on her face that her sister liked. And she said, "But I'm getting a little tired," and told Tanjiro that she was relieved to see that he was working hard too. Shinobu is a good person, but he also has tragedy in his heart like other Slayers. After she left, Tanjiro told himself that he should train harder.


Depressing? Much more than that.
You killed my sister, didn't you?
Don't you remember this haori (kimono)?

Is there something that hurts?
It was you who killed my sister, right?
Is there anything you can see in this haori?

Tsurai mo nani mo arumonoka Watashi no ane wo koroshita nowa omae dana? Kono haori ni mioboe wa naika.

For Doma, the demon of the 12 moons.

(Video) 🦋Shinobu Kocho🦋 Voice Clips From Demon Slayer!

Shinobu met Doma, the demon who killed his sister, in Mugenjo, where Muzan Kibutsuji, the progenitor of all demons, sent Slayers, including Shinobu. When he found it, a girl ate it. He tried to save her, but Doma easily killed the girl. He explained that he saved people by killing them so they could be freed from their fear and pain and live in him forever by eating them. Shinobu had already noticed that this time the demon was the one who should take revenge and said, "You're crazy. You make me sick." Doma replied, "This is our first date and you are so tough. Oh, you must have something depressing. So she goes in this row. Shinobu was always calm and collected throughout the story and this was the first time he showed his strong anger.


Yes, I'm angry, Tanjiro.
I was angry all the time.
My parents were murdered. My sister was murdered.
My students, except Kanawo, were killed. They must have lived a peaceful life with their families if their families weren't killed by demons.
Irritates me. fuck you idiot Why don't my poisons work on you, you bastard!

Right, I'm angry, Tanjiro-kun
I'm angry all the time
parents were murdered. sister was murdered
Besides Kanao, his stepsons were also killed. If true, even now the demons are killing their own relatives. In case you haven't been here yet)I used to live happily with my family.
This pisses me off, idiot, why doesn't the poison work, idiot?(Idiot)

First Tanjiro, then Doma (in Shinobu's mind)

In the fight against Doma, Shinobu used many kinds of poisons on him, but he detoxified them all and none of them worked on him. Doma totally dominated the fight. Shinobu was already mortally wounded, but he didn't give up and kept attacking him. As he gave her another shove, she recalled when Tanjiro had asked her if she was angry on Cho Yashiki's rooftop. She mentally answered his question again, realizing the reason for facing the demons again: to save lives and not take more victims like Shinobu. Then she focused her attention on the enemy in front of her. I think Shinobu has been hiding the truth since she lost her sister. She would pretend and act like her sister, whom she respected and wanted to be. But in the final fight for her (she knew she wouldn't survive) she revealed herself, her anger against the demons and that made her so strong and brave.


Just go to hell, idiot.

the home

Unfortunately, Shinobu was taken to Doma and his student Kanawo came to meet him. Kanawo's anger reached its peak and they engaged in a bitter battle. Fighting alongside Inosuke Hashibira, who happened to come to the battlefield, they finally cut off the demon's head. In the afterlife, Shinobu was waiting for Doma. He had already lost his body and only his head was in Shinobu's hand and they talked for a bit. He said he knew someone would take his will and cut off Doma's head. Suddenly he blushed and told her he was in love with her and asked her to go to hell together. That line was her reply to him. Doma has been an emotionless human since he was human and it was the first time he felt emotion, which was love for Shinobu. But of course she declined his offer and said the phrase with a divine smile. It was his best moment!

The main theme of Demon Slayer is to nullify the will of humans. Like other victims of the demons, Shinobu had a hard time, but he took his sister's will and gave it to his disciple. I believe his soul is saved and he rests in peace.
