Giyu Tomioka is the first Hashira to appear in the anime series “Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba“. He is a dark-haired young man with a calm and unsmiling personality. His combat style is water breathing.

This figure displayed is also the fighting pose of Giyu Tomioka using the water breathing. It shows that Giyu Tomioka is struggling forward, looking straight ahead with solemn eyes, showing a calm and firm will. He is holding a nichirin blade, lightly wielding a strong and powerful water column special effect.

The haori with different patterns on the left and right sides that worn on the outside also have very fine pattern details. This haori also has a special meaning. Giyu Tomioka wore it to commemorate the two most important people in his life: the left half has the same pattern as his deceased friend Sabito‘s haori, and the right half has the same pattern as his late older sister Tsutako Tomioka‘s haori.
