Shoichi (正しょう一いち Shōichi?) is a young boy rescued by Tanjiro Kamado and Zenitsu Agatsuma when they came to the aid of his older brother, Kiyoshi, to escape from the House of Drum. He also has a little sister named Teruko.


Shoichi is a child of around 8-10 years old, with black hair and light brown eyes. He wears a blue haori over a light-green tunic.

Although his personality isn’t fully developed, we can assume he’s a loyal brother, as he decides to follow his older brother to rescue him after he’s kidnapped by a demon. He has also shown a protective side in his interactions with his little sister. We can assume that Shoichi is braver than average, as he decides to follow the two demon-slayers, Tanjiro and Zenitsu, into the House of the Drum. Even when separated from the others with Zenitsu, he shows more courage than the Thunder Breath user.


Although we don’t know much about his past, Shoichi comes from a family of three children, of whom he is the youngest.

Shoichi is apparently the middle child.
Zenitsu mistakenly believes Shoichi to be a powerful warrior after he lost consciousness in the House of the Drum, when he was attacked by the Tongue Demon. When Zenitsu came to, the demon was already dead, which Zenitsu attributed to Shoichi. In reality, Zenitsu had defeated the demon while he slept.
