In anime, there are departures that not only make viewers feel depressed, but also make them cry out of tears because of the heartbreak.
Whenever an anime series (Japanese animation) reaches its climax, many fans are concerned that their favorite characters will actually live to the end of the series.
Because in the anime world, sacrifice to save friends, dying from an incurable disease, or even “flying color” at the hands of powerful enemies are all very likely. In fact, there are many ways to remove a character from the story to increase the reader’s attention and promote the plot. Of course, there are many character sacrifices in the movies that have left inconsolable pain in the hearts of fans.
Hence the famous Japanese site – Anime!Anime! conducted a survey with the theme: “Which anime character’s departure hurts you the most?”.
The editorial department conducted a survey on the question from December 26 to January 2 of this year, achieving a participation rate of 40% male and 60% female. Most of the respondents were under 19 years old.
The specific results are as follows:
10. Shinsuke Takasugi – Gintama
9. Koro-sensei – Ansatsu Kyoushitsu
8. Ash Lynx – Banana Fish
7. Jinpei Matsuda – Famous Detective Conan
6. Keisuke Baji – Tokyo Reverger
5. Jiraiya – Naruto
4. Eugeo – Sword Art Online
3. Sasha Blouse – Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan)
2. Portgas D. Ace – One Piece
1. Kyojuro Rengoku – Kimetsu no Yaiba
Sacrifice is inevitable in the world of Kimetsu no Yaiba – Demon Slayer, where the job of the Demon Slayer is to confront scheming, cunning demons. And the departure of the Inflammatory Pillar Kyojuro Rengoku is an example.
The moment when the Flame Pillar took its last breath was one of the things that made viewers cry the most. Because when he was alive, he carried in him the serious character and noble heart of a hero. In the Mugen Train storyline, the Flame Pillar heroically sacrificed himself to preserve the lives of thousands of people, which is really a worthwhile sacrifice.
At the same time, the sacrifice of the Flame Pillar is said to be necessary for Tanjiro’s journey and the series as a whole. Because Rengoku’s departure has given the trio of Tanjiro, Zenisu and Inosuke new motivation to not only get stronger, but continue to develop themselves, as they now carry the legacy of Rengoku with them.
With these reasons, it is not too difficult to understand that the death of Kyojuro Rengoku in Kimetsu no Yaiba topped the list of “Which anime character’s departure hurts you the most?” voted by fans. .
