Yoriichi is the third character from the top on Kimetsu No Yaiba’s cast and one of the best secondary characters. In this article, we will be going over who Yoriichi is, where she’s from, her relationship with Ryuho and Kakyouin, what she does for a job, and more! Let’s get started.
In a world filled with dark creatures like demons and witches, it’s easy to think that humanity has nothing left to fear. But this couldn’t be further from the truth — there are still plenty of monsters beyond our understanding and control. The perfect example is a monster called a “youkai,” which can be found in the Biblia woodlands and are so powerful that they’re capable of destroying entire villages.
Such creatures are often driven away by “youjo,” which are humans that have awakened to the same power as youkai. They lure them away from settlements and fend them off with their powers. Although there’s no way to stop the youkai from attacking again, youjo are still essential for protecting the people around them. One such heroic warrior is a girl named Yoriichi Shienzuka — but she’s not your average youjo…
Who is Yoriichi in Kimetsu No Yaiba?
Yoriichi Shienzuka is a gifted youjo who was the third to join Ryuho’s party. She hails from the village of Senritsu where she performed as a solo youjo for many years. In fact, Yoriichi — or “Yorie” as she’s often referred to — has been fighting off youkai for nearly her entire life. Even though she hasn’t been able to convince her parents to let her leave the village, this strong-willed girl has left on many adventures in search of stronger prey.
Returning to Senritsu for the first time in many years, Yorie instantly recognizes the layout of the village and realizes that it’s changed a lot. The only person she knows from her childhood is now a highly skilled youjo with a respected title. However, she learns that he has been gone for some time and soon finds out why — Ryuho has finally returned to Senritsu! And it seems as though he brought Yoriichi along too…
