Known as the strongest members and hold the highest positions in the Demon Killing Corps, the Hashira or The Pillars were among the most highly anticipated characters by the manga readers to appear in the anime adaptation of Koyoharu Gotōge popular shounen manga series Kimetsu no Yaiba. With only 5 more episodes left of Demon Slayer anime series, The Pillars were finally introduced and the cast members for each of them had been revealed in a short teaser video as an introduction to the new characters in the anime.
Now, that they had been introduced, anime viewers may have this question of who is the strongest member of hashira (pillars) from Kimetsu no Yaiba? Alright, the answer is no other than the Stone Pillar: Gyōmei Himejima who is the strongest pillar of Demon Hunters Corp. Nonetheless, the other members are also strong enough to stand on their own against members of 12 Kizuki – Muzan Kibutsuji’s strongest demons. Though, I won’t spill the beans any deeper here since it might spoil some people here.
