Power of Akaza (Upper Moon 3) in Demon Slayer-
Studio Ufotable didn’t disappoint in animating what seems to be one of the best movies, which broke many records. Although it was Akaza’s first appearance in the whole series, he certainly left quite an impression.
Akaza is an upper moon rank three of Twelve Kizuki, an organization consisting of powerful demons under the command of the demon king, Muzan Kibutsuji. He possesses incredible strength and attributes, thanks to his martial arts prowess. Surprisingly so, he can outmatch powerful demon slayers with only his fists.
Most of all, he is able to discern his opponent’s weakness and predict their attacks by sensing their fighting spirit.
Prior to his martial arts training, Akaza was able to defeat grown men even as a child. However, after learning Soryu Style from Keizo, he was able to murder well-trained adult swordsmen with his bare hands to which Muzen thought was an act done by a demon.
