In the “Demon Slayer” season 3known as the Blacksmith Village Arch, Genya Shinazugawa will participate in the battle against hantenguthe fourth Upper Moonand will demonstrate his unique power among demon slayers: he can gain the power of a demon by eating part of its body.

Sanemi’s brother cannot use any breathing like the others, but he fights with a nichirin sword and shotgun.

His appearance is the antipodes of the demon: he is ugly, dark, and from time to time he hurts himself until he bleeds.

In addition, he is envious of seeing that Tengen Uzui not only is he strong but he is handsome and tall. But the most important thing about Gyutaro is that he uses a couple of sickles that manage to hurt the Pillar of Sound.

In this way, Gyutaro is Daki’s brother with whom he shares the body, because that explains why the latter did not disappear when Uzui cut his neck in an easy way. Now, in the next chapter of Demon Slayer 2more will be known about the villain of the Arc of the Entertainment District.
