Just who was Tanjiro and Nezuko Kamado’s Father?

Just who was Tanjiro and Nezuko Kamado’s Father? Was Tanjiro Kamado’s Father A Demon Slayer? What’s the secret behind Tanjiro’s Hanafuda Earrings? Is Tanjiro’s Father the Key to Demon Slayer? and Do we get the secret of Tanjiro’s Father Revealed in Season 2 of Demon Slayer? Hey and welcome! These are all the questions we will try to look at today.

With the second season of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba airing sometime this year 2021, hopefully. We thought it was time to answer some of the burning questions we might all have before the next season rolls in. And from here on we will be mostly calling Tanjiro and Nezuko Kamado’s father by his name, Tanjuro.

Just who was Tanjiro and Nezuko Kamado’s Father?

Who was Tanjuro Kamado?

Tanjuro Kamado was a quiet, calculating, forgiving and respectable person. He didn’t like to stand out so maybe that is why not much has been said about his earlier life, before marrying his wife Kie Kamado and having children Tanjiro Kamado, Nezuko Kamado, Takeo Kamado, Hanako Kamado, Shigeru Kamado, and Rokuta Kamado. (suspicious and that’s a lot of kids!!!)

He would regularly lecture Tanjiro about life. But even with his peaceful approach to life, he would show his immense physical prowess in saving his family from danger and they really loved him.

In his last years, he was a wise but sick and frail man. He died before the slaughter of his wife and youngest children by Muzan Kibutsuji.

Was Tanjiro Kamado’s Father A Demon Slayer?

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is an anime that has created quite a following and that means a lot of fan theories and questions about the series have emerged. And one of them I think everyone has been curious about was if Tanjiro Kamado’s father, Tanjurou, is a Hashira/Demon Slayer or not. Especially after watching a certain episode.

Where Muzan has a flashback and we see a shadow resembling a grown-up Tanjiro with a similar scar standing over a defeated Muzan. That would explain why Muzan paid his family a visit after his father’s death, or why Tanjiro’s father is shown dancing the Dance of Sun/Fire God.

Hello Shadowy man are you Tanjiro and Nezuko father?

So who was this mysterious shadowy man and was Tanjuro Kamado a demon slayer? Well, to answer the question… No Tanjuro (Tanjiro’s and Nezuko’s father) was not a demon slayer. The shadowy figure we saw in Muzan’s flashback is not Tanjuro but Yoriichi Tsugikuni, a powerful and skilled swordsman among the Demon Slayer Corps.

What’s the secret behind Tanjiro’s Hanafuda Earrings?

When Muzan Kibutsuji sees Tanjiro’s Hanafuda earrings, he sends two of his subordinates after the young Demon Slayer. Why was Muzan shaken by them and what’s the connection of the Hanafuda earrings with the Demon Slayer world?

The Hanafuda Earrings in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, were for Yoriichi Tsukune made by his mother and were given to the Kamado family as a gift during a stay at their home. Since then it has been passed down in the Kamado family along with the Sun Breathing technique through the dance of the fire god technique.

Is Tanjiro’s Father the Key to Demon Slayer?

Yes, It’s thanks to Tanjuro Kamado’s connection to the demon slayer world Tanjiro can learn the Dance of Sun/Fire God or Sun Breathing technique. He also helps in inspiring Tanjiro and Nezuko. It’s through their talks we have Tanjiro as the protagonist we have today.

Do we get the secret of Tanjiro’s Father Revealed in Season 2 of Demon Slayer?

Maybe, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 2 will probably be out in September or October 2021. So yes, I think we can expect to learn a bit more about the Kamado family and their connection to Yoriichi Tsukune.


On that note I am done! What are your thoughts on Tanjuro Kamado or Just the whole Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba series let me know down below.

Till next time… Keep Moving Forward!
