Fans were first introduced to the characters in the first season of the show beginning with the “Final Selection Arc” premiering Zenitsu and the “Tsuzumi Mansion Arc” giving Inosuke his initial screen time. Zenitsu is a timid-haired, orange-robed swordsman. Although he’s generally detrimental to the team, he can perform excellently with a sword after a night of sleep. Inosuke spends most of his time wearing an animal mask and is a reckless wild card who is always seeking an opportunity to engage in a battle. The duo soon formed a trio, along with the protagonist, Tanjiro Kamado, and participated in many battles across the first two seasons, as well as in the film.
Genya Shinazugawa Returns to Season 1
While Zenitsu and Inosuke will not be featured in Season 3. However, there will be a return of another Season 1 character who has not had much screen time: Genya Shinazugawa, introduced in the “Final Selection Arc” where he got into an altercation with Tanjiro. In the following episode, he was briefly featured in “Rehabilitation Training Ark” where he defeated the protagonist. Together with Mist Hashira MuichiroTokito and Love Hashira Mitsurikanroji, the trio will have an important role in Season 3.
