5 Differences Tanjiro Kamado with Other Shounen Protagonists

Tanjiro Kamado is the main protagonist in the popular shounen series Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba.

After his family is killed and his younger brother is turned into a demon by Muzan Kibutsuji, Tanjiro begins his journey as a demon hunter to turn his younger brother back into a human.

Usually, most shounen protagonists have fairly clichéd stories, backgrounds, and traits.

However, this does not apply to Tanjiro Kamado.

The reason is, this one character has several things that distinguish it from other shounen protagonists?

Curious about what makes Tanjiro different from other shounen protagonists? Just take a look at the following reviews, OK!

1. Loving, even to the devil

As a demon hunter, Tanjiro's job is to kill demons.

Even so, Tanjiro remains a loving figure, even to the devil.

At the start of the series, it is seen that Tanjiro refuses to kill any demon that seeks to harm him.

In fact, once he is strong enough to kill a demon, Tanjiro will apologize to the demon he has killed.

Not infrequently, Tanjiro also gives a proper burial to the demon who died at his hands.

2. The journey is more difficult

The thing that makes Tanjiro's journey more difficult than the journey of other shounen protagonists is that he always carries a burden.

Wherever he goes, Tanjiro must always carry Nezuko with him.

Nezuko often helps Tanjiro in battle. However, his existence still makes Tanjiro's journey more difficult.

Tanjiro must always make sure that his little brother doesn't lose control and eat humans.

In addition, Tanjiro also has to convince those around him that Nezuko is not a threat.

This is certainly not easy, considering that demons are the main enemy of humans in the world of Demon Slayer. 

Despite all that, however, Tanjiro's journey would be meaningless without Nezuko.

3. Don't want to be the strongest

In general, shounen protagonists always aim to be the strongest or the best in their world.

For example, Naruto Uzumaki who wants to become Hokage in Konohagakure or Izuku Midoriya who wants to be the number one hero.

However, it is different with Tanjiro. Tanjiro never wanted to be the strongest in the Demon Hunter Corps.

The only thing he wanted was to take revenge on Muzan and turn his sister back into a human.

4. Always blame himself

If there is someone who always throws the blame on others, then that person is the opposite of Tanjiro.

Tanjiro always blames himself for every bad thing that is happening, even though it's not really his fault.

When he fails to save someone, Tanjiro always blames himself for being too weak.

Recently, Tanjiro has also blamed himself for not being by Tengen's side while fighting Gyutaro.

5. Does not have an annoying nature

Most shounen protagonists do have a positive nature.

However, they always have at least one trait that fans don't like.

Even so, Tanjiro has absolutely no traits that fans can hate.

Tanjiro was never careless in taking action.

He always thinks twice before making a decision.

Tanjiro also never spoke in a high tone to other people.

It's no surprise that Tanjiro is one of the most popular shounen protagonists by anime fans.

With this, Tanjiro has many differences from most other shounen protagonists.
