The magistrate beat him and marked him with tattoo, threatening to cut his arms off the adjacent clock time he was caught and calling him a “ Demon Child ”. When Hakuji returned home after his third beat, a villager informed him that his father, having hear of his check, hang himself. In the letter he left, he stated he wanted Hakuji to live a entire life and did n’t want to take medicine if it was earned by corruptible means. With his criminal tattoo and no home to return to, Hakuji was finally banished from Edo. Devastated by the loss of his father and enraged at this club they lived in where he could n’t afford his don ‘s medicate, he picked fights with people and beat them up. One day, after closely killing seven adult men in a village, he was approached by Keizo, the owner of a local dojo. Annoyed by the world ‘s cheerful demeanor, Hakuji challenged him to a fight, but was defeated with ease. Keizo then took him in so he could nurse Koyuki, Keizo ‘s ailing daughter. Her mother, her previous caretaker, drowned herself ascribable to stress and Keizo had to work handyman jobs to keep them afloat, so Hakuji was tasked with tending to her. already accustomed to caring for his father, he had little trouble, though he found it awkward when she burst into tears apparently at random. One of those times, unbeknown to him, he had indirectly motivated her by telling her that “ there will be a adjacent year ” to see a local anesthetic firework picture. One day, he discovered that Koyuki had been forced outside and left there by the heir of the nearby kenjutsu dojo that sought Keizo ‘s land for themselves and prevented him from getting any students before Hakuji. Enraged, Keizo and Hakuji fought the dojo, and after defeating nine people, Hakuji made them promise to never get involved with the Soryuu dojo or Koyuki again. The heir of the rival dojo became enrage and swung a sword at Hakuji, merely for him to use his Bell Splitter proficiency and punch the side of the blade, breaking it.

One day, Keizo offered to let Hakuji take over the dojo—and take Koyuki as his bride, to Hakuji ‘s surprise and embarrassment. He agreed, mutely vowing to protect both of them, even at the cost of his own liveliness. At a festival, Koyuki told him of her past, asking if he was actually approve with the proposal, to which he reaffirmed his vows to her, promising to protect her for the rest of his life sentence .
The successor of the rival dojo listen about Hakuji ‘s marriage to Koyuki, so he gathered some angered disciples and fight Hakuji, but they lost. tragically, this victory was ephemeral. Hakuji went to visit his father ‘s dangerous to inform him of his marriage, but quickly realized something was imperfectly upon his return. A scholar from the dojo informed him that the rival dojo had poisoned the well where Koyuki and Keizo drank water from. The two died shortly after drinking that water while Hakuji had been away. Enraged, Hakuji killed all sixty-seven members of the rivaling dojo with his bare hands, pulverizing them to the point where their corpses were nobelium longer recognizable. This incident catch Muzan Kibutsuji ‘s attention and, though he was disappointed to find it had been a homo rather than a Demon who ‘d done such a ghastly act, he decided to make Hakuji one of the Twelve Kizuki.

Although not precisely specified, it has been stated by Akaza that each of the Hashira that he battled did not use the Flame Breathing, showing that his battle with Kyojuro Rengoku was the first clock he had come across a Flame Hashira.

Akaza appears concisely after Tanjiro, Kyojuro, Inosuke, Zenitsu and Nezuko have defeated Enmu and rescued the passengers. Noticing a toss off Tanjiro, he immediately rushes forward to kill him, when Kyojuro stops the approach and slices his weapon in half.

Akaza is repeatedly cut but immediately regenerates his wounds, all while taunting Kyojuro by saying all the Hashiras he had killed had never once taken his offer to change. The devil launches in the air and hits Kyojuro with Air Type, knocking him spinal column temporarily, though the attack is quickly beaten. Knowing a conflict at a distance will be difficult, the Flame Hashira rushes fore and tries to attack up close, though all his swings are deflected and dodged. Akaza again taunts him for his weakening homo stamen compared to his demonic physiology and tries again to persuade Kyojuro to change, which fails as Kyojuro repeats he will not become like him. They trade attacks again, with even Inosuke noting that if he tried to help Kyojuro, he would be besides slow and killed instantaneously. Akaza starts to make contact with his attacks, badly injuring the Hashira. All of Kyojuro ‘s sword blows are futile with the monster ‘s rapid healing abilities and he starts to become desperate with multiple Flame Breathing attacks.

Akaza, once again, taunts Kyojuro for his numerous injuries, whereas his had already healed immediately because of being a monster and for fighting a lose conflict as a human. Kyojuro ‘s body suddenly becomes engulfed in fire, declaring he will fulfil his duty as a Hashira, to the demon ‘s confusion and wonder. Kyojuro decide he would try to injure him deoxyadenosine monophosphate much as potential, even if it means dying, and speeds fore with Flame Breathing: Esoteric Art. Akaza is amazed at his opponent ‘s crusade spirit, and decide he must become a demon so they can conflict constantly.

They hit each early ; with Kyojuro slicing Akaza ‘s arm, torso and about through his neck, and Akaza driving his arm through Rengoku ‘s solar plexus. Akaza desperately begs him to become a monster, knowing the wound he inflicted is fatal and amazed at his opponent ‘s will to fight, declares him one of the few chosen strong ones. Kyojuro refuses once more, remembering his mother ‘s promise to him to protect the weak, and drives his sword profoundly through his neck, even catching his fist when Akaza tries to punch him with his free hand, shocking the demon. The sun begins to rise and Akaza attempts to flee but is held in place by Kyojuro refusing to surrender. Tanjiro and Inosuke undertake to aid the Hashira, Inosuke using Fang One: Pierce to attack the devil. Akaza on the spur of the moment rips off his own arms from Kyojuro ‘s body and stomps the earth, creating a shockwave to knocks Inosuke away and giving him the luck to flee.

Akaza hears Tanjiro ‘s cries, calling him a coward for retreating, enraging him as he mutters to himself that he was fleeing from the sun, not him. Deciding the battle over and Kyojuro will soon die, Akaza flees to safety in the afforest, leaving Inosuke and Tanjiro with a dying Kyojuro .
Akaza appears before Muzan and reports to him that he could not find the Blue Spider Lily, rather, he took down one of the Hashira. Muzan retorts it was entirely one Hashira and declaring his desire is for all to be dead. Angered at his failure, Muzan takes see of Akaza ‘s cells and causes him to bleed heavily. The Demon Lord mocks him for acting gallant when three other monster slayers were still active and he could have killed them equally well, ending his bombast by claiming “ even Upper Moon Three was brought to the ground ”. When dismissed by Muzan for his failure, he takes poster of Tanjiro ‘s nearby blade. Remembering how he called him a coward, he furiously smashes it to pieces and declare he would spill his brains the next time they meet .

An unfazed Doma continues trying to talk and evens believes the attack is merely a sign of their “ friendship ”. Nakime answers his question and states that Upper Moon One is the first gear to arrive, who then announces Muzan ‘s appearance. Muzan voices his disappointment in Gyutaro and wonders aloud why the Upper Moons are still around with no longer a proper purpose, shocking them all ; Akaza himself does n’t respond knowing his late failure. Gyokko suddenly states that he has raw information for their drawing card and Doma unwittingly asks if he can participate in a mission, causing Akaza to angrily destroy his superior ‘s head for “ disobeying Muzan ‘s orders ”.
on the spur of the moment, his hired hand falls off, and Kokushibo appears before him, reprimanding him for disrupting the hierarchy. A regenerate Doma tries to calm down Upper Moon One but he angrily tells Akaza if he wanted to take Doma ‘s place and drum him, he should do so in a proper conflict. A silent Akaza overhears Doma ‘s statement that such a battle would be bootless, since even the more recently turned Doma is army for the liberation of rwanda more brawny than he is, earning his wrath. Doma continues to try defending Akaza but Kokushibo directly asks him if he understood what he declared. Akaza complies but softly threatens to kill him angstrom well.
