Nezuko Kamado

Nezuko Kamado (竈門 禰豆子 Kamado Nezuko) from Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer) is the younger sister of the main character Tanjiro Kamado. Her personality is a kind and caring girl in her original human form. As a Demon, she has forgotten most of her memories as a human besides for those related to her such as Tanjiro, thus she doesn't share the same personality of her human form after she becomes a Demon, but she still retains some of her previous human emotions, we have seen her to cry when sad and also smile when she is happy.

After becoming a Demon, Nezuko is impaired when it comes to speech and interaction. However after being able to resist towards sunlight (Demons usually burn away in sunlight) and gaining more interaction with others, There are improvements to her ability to speak, such as being able to repeat the pronunciation after someone has just spoken it.

The role Akari Kito plays in Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer) is of a girl who is initially a kind and caring girl but who has lost her fully human self and is a demon who is slowly trying to regain her human self with the help of her brother Tanjiro Kamado.
