Have you ever wondered how a seemingly unfair act of kindness can result in a surprising twist of fate? In the popular anime series Demon Slayer, Giyu Tomioka faced serious consequences when he allowed Nezuko Kamado – a demon – to continue living. But somehow, Giyu managed to avoid receiving any punishment for his daring act. So how did Giyu escape punishment for letting Nezuko live? Let’s dive into this incredible story and find out!
For the 2017 anime Kimetsu no Yaiba, Giyu Tomioka was sent as a member of the Demon Slayer Corps to kill Tanjiro’s sister, Nezuko, who was discovered to be a demon. In an impressive display of strength, he quickly defeats her. However, Giyu realized that Nezuko was different from the other demons he had encountered before and decided to spare her life. But although Giyu did not do what he was ordered to do, the Demon Slayer Corps had no choice but to punish him, as disobeying orders was unheard of.
Giyu received the following punishments:
- Demotion: Although he left his post as a Hashira (strongest member of the Demon Slayer Corps), he was still allowed to remain a part of the organization.
- Suspension of wages: He was not allowed to handle any money from the Demon Slayer Corps for an unspecified period of time.
- Public apology: This was to apologize to the other members of the Demon Slayer Corps for not doing what he was ordered to do.
Although Giyu was punished, it showed how different Nezuko was from the other demons he had encountered before and allowed her to live and eventually join the Demon Slayer Corps. His decision eventually set the course of the story and ultimately helped Tanjiro and Nezuko in their quest for justice.
As we can see, Giyu did not suffer any punishment for freeing Nezuko. He risked his life and sacrificed his reputation to do what was right. It was truly a remarkable decision that will never be forgotten.
