chapter 21


Episode 11 The Twelve Kizuki ( 十 ( じゅう ) 二 ( に ) 鬼 ( き ) 月 ( づき ), Jūnikizuki ?, unhorse. Twelve Demon Moons ) is an organization of the twelve most brawny demons in being who are under the direct control of the Demon King, Muzan Kibutsuji .


The Twelve Kizuki is an arrangement of the 12 strongest beings amongst demon-kind, second in military capability and authority merely to the Demon King himself, Muzan Kibutsuji. Each member of the Twelve Kizuki has received a large share of Muzan ‘s blood, greater than any other devil, frankincense exponentially increasing their power. [ 1 ] As a testament to this, every member of the Twelve Kizuki can use Blood Demon Arts, supernatural powers and techniques manifested through rake that only powerful demons have entree to .
The Twelve Kizuki are divided into two groups, the six Upper Ranks ( 上 ( じょう ) 弦 ( げん ), Jōgen ? ), numbered one through six, and the six Lower Ranks ( 下 ( か ) 弦 ( げん ), Kagen ? ), besides numbered one through six. The act signifies their ranking among the Twelve Kizuki, determined by each member ‘s level of potency, Upper Rank One being the strongest and Lower Rank Six being the weakest. The Lower Ranks have their numbers and ranks engraved only into one eye, whereas the Upper Ranks have their numbers in one eye and the kanji for “ Upper Rank ” ( 上 ( じょう ) 弦 ( げん ), Jōgen ? ) in the early. While the exact relationships between the two groups are ill-defined, it is said by Muzan himself that the Upper Ranks despise the Lower Ranks. [ 2 ] The Upper Ranks each posse a tied of power that far surpasses that of the Lower Ranks ; as proof of their lastingness, the strongest of the Demon Slayer Corps, the Hashira, have killed numerous Lower Ranks over the years, while the Upper Ranks have killed and eat many Hashira. Kagaya Ubuyashiki states that it had been a hundred years since an Upper Rank has been killed following the kill of Gyutaro and Daki. [ 3 ] While the Lower Ranks have been replaced countless times, the Upper Ranks did not exchange over the run of over a 100 years. [ 4 ] When a penis of the group is removed from the Twelve Kizuki, Muzan Kibutsuji demotes these members by slashing the pupils where the number signifying their social station is located, creating an “ ten ” shaped scar over the digit, signifying that they are no longer separate of the Twelve Kizuki. The entirely exercise of this happen is Kyogai, who had already reached his “ restrict ” and could no longer consume human flesh. This gradually led to Kyogai losing his appetite for humans and beginning to lose the ability to evolve and become stronger. consequently, he was deemed besides weak to remain in his put of Lower Rank Six .
After their most late failure with the death of Rui ( Lower Rank Five ), Muzan decided to dismantle the Lower Ranks wholly. He then proceeded to kill all of the Lower Ranks, sparing entirely Enmu, Lower Rank 1, giving him a chance to redeem himself by killing a Hashira and bringing him the head of Tanjiro Kamado. [ 5 ] With Enmu ‘s death by the hands of Tanjiro, the Lower Ranks are functionally disbanded with all of their members dead, [ 6 ] and with Nakime ‘s death by the hands of Muzan himself, the Upper Ranks are besides functionally disbanded with all their members dead. [ 7 ]


The Twelve Kizuki have been given three tasks to complete by Muzan ‘s command :

  • To find the Blue Spider Lily (the key ingredient of the experimental medicine that made Muzan a demon), but since Muzan’s discovery (via Hantengu) that Nezuko Kamado is sun-proof, he has decided that the Upper Ranks’ first focus is to capture her and bring her to him.
  • The destruction of the Demon Slayer Corps. As part of their Mission to destroy the Corps, Muzan gave the Twelve Kizuki specific orders to hunt down and eliminate the Ubuyashiki Family, as they are the Corps’s leaders and backers and are ultimately what keeps the Corps alive and rebuilds the Organization up again no matter how many times Muzan and the Twelve destroy it.
  • After over a hundred years of failing at these two tasks, Muzan has decided that demons should serve him with suicidal devotion to ensure success.

Blood Battle

According to Kokushibo, if there is any dissatisfaction between the say members of the Upper Rank demons, the lower rate rival must invoke the right to kill or defeat their craved target in order to change their position in the hierarchy. Any that defies the rules will face retribution, as seen in when Akaza attacked Doma who was a higher membership than him — the former had his arm sliced off by Kokushibo as a warn for disregarding the hierarchical holy order .


As the Twelve Kizuki are deemed by Muzan to be the twelve most knock-down demons ( second entirely to himself ), he is known to constantly give favor and special attention to all twelve members of the group. As seen where he would give respective of the group ‘s members extra privileges normally not given to average demons. One of these privilege ‘s is where he would empower all members of the group with huge amounts of his blood in arrange to increase their exponent and forte in recognition to their achievements and further strengthen in orderliness to be of further practice in his plans. furthermore, Upper Rank demons have the authority to transform humans they view as worthy into demons by giving them blood, and upon receiving license from Muzan, their rake will transform into Muzan ‘s. This is seen with Gyutaro ‘s and Daki ‘s subject where Doma was able to turn the siblings into demons by giving them his rake. This is besides seen with Kaigaku, where Kokushibo was besides able to turn the Demon Slayer into a devil by giving him his blood. As seen from the case with Rui, Muzan himself had given him limited license to form a large group of demons despite his own law of forbidding them to team up in concert in large numbers in rate to satisfy his longing for a kin. Showcasing that despite his paranoia of the possibility of other demons teaming up together in arrange to overthrow him, his discrimination for Rui exempted him from immediately executing him and his new “ family ” and allow its being. Furthermore, Muzan was shown to have given Gyutaro and Daki the particular privilege of sharing the placement of Upper Rank Six. With his discrimination towards Daki ‘s older buddy, Gyutaro, having allowed her to besides have the rank and partake it with him despite her being much weaker than him and the other Upper Ranks. In the case of Akaza, he was given special license by Muzan to not eat women. Akaza was noted by Doma to have an unusual aversion to eat or even hurting women despite the huge power he could gain by devouring them due to their stronger nutritional value to a devil ‘s development. Despite his orders for all Twelve Members of the Group to endlessly strive for more office by eating humans in mass to be of better use to him, Muzan actually gave Akaza particular license to not eat women and indulged his strange oddity due to considering him to be one of his favorite Upper Ranks. Akaza was besides noted to be only deployed by Muzan for especial assignments and nothing else, far showing the favor he gives him as one of his favorites.


The first of the Twelve Kizuki that was encountered in the series was the erstwhile Lower Rank Six, Kyogai, who is slain in battle by Tanjiro Kamado. Tanjiro and his companions would shortly thereafter embark on the Natagumo Mountains to confrontation against Lower Rank Five, Rui, who was manipulating a group of demons to forcibly act as his kin and to assist him in the stamp out of Demon Slayers. Tanjiro about managed to behead Rui, but the devil outwitted him by using his threads to cut off his head. He is later saved by the timely arrival of the Water Hashira, Giyu Tomioka, who swiftly beheads Rui for good. Rui ‘s death would former prompt Muzan Kibutsuji to lose his stallion faith in the faction ‘s ability and proceeded to dismantle the remaining Lower Ranks by coldly annihilating all members except for Lower Rank One, Enmu. Enmu is then given an extra injection of Muzan ‘s blood and tasked with killing the Hashira and Tanjiro as a last luck offer to save his life, with the promise of even more blood if he were to complete his mission. Enmu late intercepted Tanjiro with his companions on a train. He planned to feast on the 200+ passengers by combining his body with the caravan and using his blood Demon Art to trap them in their dreams. Through the joint feat of Tanjiro Kamado and Inosuke Hashibira, Enmu is soundly defeated, only for their ephemeral victory to be interrupted by the unexpected arrival of Upper Rank 3, Akaza. Akaza would commence conflict with the Flame Hashira, Kyojuro Rengoku. After a drawn-out battle, Akaza mortally wounds Kyojuro but is forced to flee from the rising sun. Daki, Upper Rank Six, is the next gamey ranked demon encountered. After receiving give voice of a demon claiming its prey grind in the Entertainment District, Tengen Uzui ( Sound Hashira ) sets off with the aid of Tanjiro, Nezuko, Inosuke, and Zenitsu. The group manages to locate Daki and slice her neck off, only for her to reveal her older buddy and the on-key Upper Rank Six, Gyutaro. Gyutaro and Daki, are then revealed to be sharing bodies and were last both defeated after their coincident decapitation. immediately following the deaths of Gyutaro and Daki ( Upper Rank Six ), Muzan summoned the remaining members of the Upper Ranks and gave Hantengu and Gyokko ( Upper Rank Four & Five, respectively ) a mission to exterminate the Swordsmith ‘s Village, to reduce the power of the Demon Slayer Corps by removing their ability to fight on par with the demons without swords. Both Hantengu and Gyokko were slain, but not before Hantengu witnessed ( before dying ) Nezuko standing in the sunday and telling Muzan. This shifted Muzan ‘s main interest in devouring Nezuko to conquer the sun. After his attack on the Ubayashiki Manor, Muzan escaped into the Infinity Castle thanks to Nakime. It ‘s revealed that Nakime has replaced Hantengu as the new Upper Rank Four and that Kaigaku ( a former Demon Slayer and elder to Zenitsu Agatsuma ) became the newly Upper Rank Six after an meeting with Kokushibo, thereby replacing Gyutaro and Daki. It is unknown who the new Upper Rank Five was, or if Muzan was even able to find a substitute in the first seat. curtly after arriving in the Infinity Castle, Shinobu Kocho would stumble upon Upper Rank Two, Doma, feasting on his female cult followers in his chamber. A one woman survived, merely to be mercilessly mutilated by Doma despite Shinobu ‘s hasty efforts to save her. The battle commenced between the Hashira and Upper Rank. however, Shinobu ‘s categorization of poison proved to be useless against Doma ‘s might. The demon would then proceed to promptly defeat and absorb the Hashira, alone for Kanao Tsuyuri to arrive fair excessively deep to save her. Zenitsu later ran into Kaigaku and had a duel to the death with his former schoolmate, resulting in Kaigaku ‘s end and Zenitsu about dying. elsewhere in the castle, Tanjiro and Giyu Tomioka are located by Akaza. Akaza proved to be a awful adversary, about killing the two. even after having cut off his head, Akaza through bluff self-control was able to keep his body from fading. only through memories of his previous life and name as a homo ( Hakuji ) and seeing visions of significant figures of his past was he finally sedated and passed on. Doma continues his fight against Kanao, who is by chance assisted by Inosuke Hashibira. He initially overwhelms the two with his ice rink attributed Blood Demon Arts, but was unexpectedly weakened by the lingering effects of Shinobu ‘s wisteria flower poison after having absorbed her body. The two through their combined efforts were then able to sever Doma ‘s forefront, putting an end to him. The Love Hashira, Mitsuri Kanroji and Serpent Hashira, Obanai Iguro confront the newly appointed Upper Rank Four, Nakime. The demoness outwitted the pairs ‘ attempts by the use of her Blood Demon Art that heave and controls the entire infrastructure of the Infinity Castle as she sees burst. simultaneously, the Mist Hashira, Muichiro Tokito was separated from the Stone Hashira, Gyomei Himejima by Nakime ‘s Blood Demon Art, falling into the placement of the most brawny Upper Rank demon, Upper Rank One, Kokushibo. Kokushibo instinctively sensed the lineage relation between him and Muichiro. Impressed by Muichiro ‘s proficiency with his Breathing Style, Kokushibo unsheathed his sword and revealed his Moon Breathing mannequin. The attack would sever Muichiro ‘s left arm and he is swiftly defeated with minimal campaign. rather of killing the boy, Kokushibo decides that he will transform Muichiro into a devil due to mawkishness in their rake relative and respect for his active ability. Genya Shinazugawa, waiting for an opportunity to ambush Kokushibo from behind, fires off his shotgun in an attack to save Muichiro. Faster than Genya can follow with his eyes, Kokushibo immediately dismantles him ; both arms are sliced off and he is bifurcated at his waist. Kokushibo mentions having encountered a Demon Hunter with a identical exchangeable physiology about 300 years ago, and prepares to kill Genya via decapitation. Before he could administer the concluding blow, Genya is saved by the timely arrival of his old brother and Wind Hashira, Sanemi Shinazugawa. Sanemi manages to exchange blows against Kokushibo, albeit merely for a abruptly moment. After receiving a beastly wound from an attack, Sanemi reveals that he has “ rare blood ”. He intended to use the poisoning of his bounty blood as a beguilement when crusade, and while Kokushibo is momentarily caught off guard by the scent, it has little to no effect thereafter. Using everything he could manage to think of and at his brain ‘s end, Sanemi is about killed by a bombard of blade swings. The Hashira is saved by the treatment of his comrade, Gyomei Himejima, the Stone Hashira and strongest Demon Slayer in the Demon Slayer Corps. A unmanageable battle ensues between the Upper Rank 1 and the Hashira with the demon exploiting his extraordinary eyesight abilities along with his blades made of human body. As he is pushed farther into a corner, Kokushibo ‘s blade grows army for the liberation of rwanda longer developing multiple smaller blades, far increasing both his already massive range and attack power, slowly overpowering the Hashira. A weakened but hush alive Genya, manages to recover and remembering Tanjiro ‘s words that being weaker gives him the alone advantage of being unnoticed by their enemies, uses the chemical element of surprise to shoot devil bullets into Kokushibo who is immobilized and weakened by Muichiro ‘s blade drive into the demon ‘s abdomen along, the bullets growing trees inside Kokushibo, far depriving him of his motion and lastingness. He becomes increasingly more desperate in his desire to win, and Gyomei seizes the chances to smash his head into the footing. This does not end the Upper Rank who regrows its head and athirst for victory develops flesh blades on his own body, becomes far more aggressive and grotesque.

The monster, however, has an home conflict after witnessing his despicable form through his reflection on Sanemi ‘s blade, and how what he has become contrasts significantly with what he wanted to be. As his thoughts of seeking to avoid defeat and resentment towards his self heavily conflict on him, his body begins to decay, precisely at the point where Muichiro stabbed him, struggling for a final prison term, the Upper Rank 1 ‘s body crumbles off, as he realizes that all he wanted was to be like his younger, more talented brother, signifying the end of the highest-ranking member of the Twelve Kizuki. Obanai and Mitsuri are late shown to still have great difficulties with reaching Nakime ‘s put ; constantly being thwarted in their attempts by her Blood Demon Art throughout the entire duration of the Demon Slayer Corps ‘ battles with the Upper Ranks. The two curtly thereafter are able to reconvene with Tanjiro and Giyu with the helpful aid of the recently slain Demoness Doctor, Tamayo ‘s adjunct, Yushiro. Yushiro manages to ambush Nakime using his Blood Demon Art: Blindfold while she was distracted and assumes dominance of her body by altering her vision. Yushiro declares his intention of vengeance against Muzan for killing Tamayo ; vowing to use his Upper Rank ‘s ability against him to disassemble the palace and bring him to the faint. Realizing the danger to himself, Muzan remotely detonated Nakime ‘s head through his determine, killing Nakime, although her body still remained active for sufficiently long time to bring the fortress into the surface. This try at self conservation effectively eradicated the Twelve Kizuki. Furthermore, following Muzan ‘s own demise, it terminated any find for the organization to rebuild .
