Along with the lone survivor Nezuko, he sets out on a quest to avenge the death of his family. During this journey, Tanjiro faces various demons, one of them being the Upper Three Kizuki, Akaza.

Kimetsu no Yaiba or popularly known as Demon Slayer is the manga series originally written and illustrated by Koyoharu Gotouge. It received an anime adaptation produced by Ufotable. It was released in Japan in the April of 2019. The first season had a total of 26 episodes. However, considering its popularity, a sequel movie was released in 2020, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train. Mugen Train became the highest-grossing film within no time. Not only that but Demon Slayer was renewed for a second season. It adapted the Mugen Train arc and the Entertainment District from the manga. The manga sold over 150 million copies, and it has received the top 10 spots in the world of manga. However, the anime is critically acclaimed all over the world.
Will Akaza die in Demon Slayer?
Yes, Akaza will die in Demon Slayer. Akaza is one of the most iconic demons who makes his first appearance in Mugen Train. He is also the one that is responsible for the death of Kyojuro Rengoku at the end of Mugen Train. Akaza is known as Upper 3 or Upper Moon 3 in the twelve Kizuki. He is one of the strong foes the slayers have ever met. Akaza in Kimetsu no Yaiba is killed by himself. He dies at the Infinity Castle Arch. However, it is shown in the manga that Tanjiro, Hashira, and Tomioka had already made him weak. Tanjiro and the demon had an intense fight where Tanjiro’s words made Akaza remember his human life. Akaza, however, used his forbidden Blood Demon Art called Destructive Death on Tanjiro.
Throughout the fight, the demon was constantly reminded of his human life. Akaza was reminded of his fiance Koyuki while fighting Giyuu. He does not recognize Koyuki, but in his mind, she constantly asks him why he would want to kill people? Upper 3 Demon Akaza regains his memory and now wants to destroy himself. But, the demon king, Muzan Kibutsuji, does not want that to happen. And as Akaza remembers Muzan, he starts regenerating. However, Koyuki expresses her gratitude which has Akaza to let go and disintegrate.
