Zenitsu was born on the 3rd of September and in Demon Slayer’s first season he is about 16 years old.
His family name, “Agatsuma” means “my wife” and his name translates into “kindness”.
*Zenitsu uses the Thunder Breathing Technique when fighting Demons. Initially, his hair was black but during his rough training to become a Demon Slayer he got struck by a lightning while climbing in a tree to flee from his own mentor.
Despite how scared he is of Demons Zenitsu develops an unconditional love for Tanjirou’s sister Nezuko Kamado, he will even try to convince her to become his wife and will never miss an occasion to express his love to her.
Our young adorable (or maybe not) blond haired boy possesses an over developed sense of hearing which allows him to hear even the tiniest sounds helping him to anticipate incoming danger with ease. Used at maximal potential, his ears can even hear people’s inner thoughts and localize nearby Demons.
Zenitsu struggles with self-confidence and he is not afraid to express it, frequently saying that he sees himself as a weak / useless / coward person. When he hears Demons, he can’t help but start crying and be extremely terrified, always fleeing from unnecessary confrontations with adversity affirming that he wants to live a simple and modest life instead of the one of a Demon Slayer.
Despite his normal physical appearance, Zenitsu is an extremely gifted fighter but he never shows it when he’s wide awake because of his uncontrollable fear and lack of self-esteem. When his fear reaches critical levels, he loses consciousness and completely changes his personality: the young fearful boy becomes a confident man who will not hesitate to cut a Demon’s head to protect his friends in a blink of an eye.
Taking life or death decisions and moving at lightning speed, wielding his sword like no other turning him an overpowered character. What is even more impressive is that in this unconscious state Zenitsu fights based on his instincts and hearing ability, how crazy is that?
Once he comes back to his senses, he doesn’t remember anything about what just happened and even get scared at the sight of the dead Demon he just killed.
