Who is Kaigaku, Demon or Demon Slayer? | Demon Slayer
Kaigaku, who was a Demon Slayer and uses the Breath of Thunder technique for fighting skill in the Demon Slayer series. After becoming a Demon he replaced Daki and Gyntaro and gained the position of Upper Six of the Twelve Kizuki. He is seen wearing a black kimono with white linings and blue obi over top of his black Demon Slayer uniform. For accessories, he has a blue-colored gem in the shape of a tomoe hanging around his neck with a green string which he is seen wearing throughout his life as an orphan.
When he became a Demon his hair color and most of his facial features stayed the same. After becoming a Demon his prideful demeanor was further highlighted and on both his cheeks he gained two black claw-like marks. His skin became a pale grey color and instead of the normal white sclera, it was pitch black. Like all the other Upper Moons, in his irises, the kanji for Upper Six was written.
Kaigaku was an orphan who had to steal in order to survive. He would eat scraps and drink dirty water to be able to live another day. When he was young, he was one of the orphans that Gyomei Himejma had raised at his temple. He was also the selfish orphan who led a Demon into the temple to eat the other children in exchange for his life. Afterward, he was then taken in by Kuwajima a former Pillar and taught the Breath of Thunder with Zenitsu Agatsuma. It is during this age that he makes his first appearance, during Zenitsu Agatsuma’s flashback after battling with a Demon but his face is not fully shown. In the flashback, he is not a Demon Slayer yet and wears just a loose-fitting black kimono and is seen throwing peaches at Zenitsu Agatsuma and insulting him.
While Zenitsu Agatsuma could only use the first form, Kaigaku could use all the other forms apart from the first even though it was the most basic one and was the basis of the other forms. Since Kaigaku couldn’t use the First Form he was mocked due to him being very prideful despite not being able to use the most basic technique. Even though he couldn’t use the first form he believed that since he was stronger than Zenitsu Agatsuma he would become the successor but was greatly annoyed when Jigoro said they would both become his successors.
He respected strength, and by becoming someone strong they were superior. Sometime after the death of Upper Six Daki and Gyntaro, he encounters Upper One Kokushibo and in fear grovels for his life. Kokushibo gives him his blood and turns him into a Demon. Zenitsu Agatsuma later confronts him, questioning him and his choices of becoming a Demon and tells him the news of how their master died. Kaigaku, not showing any sort of remorse instead insults their instructor and expresses relief at the thought that he is dead.
Zenitsu Agatsuma then makes up his mind and successfully decapitates Kaigaku using his original attack from the Breath of Thunder, Seventh Form: Flaming Thunder God. Kaigaku realizes the attack wasn’t one he was taught and complains that Jigoro played favorites, he couldn’t believe that Zenitsu Agatsuma created a new attack and disappears in frustration.
