Demon Slayer’s Love Hashira Mitsuri Kanroji has won many hearts since her appearance in the anime, but the ‘poison potato’ spell can be confusing for some fans.
Demon Slayer season 3 recently ended and anime fans got a chance to see Mitsuri Kanroji’s backstory. Like all the other characters in the series, Love Hashira’s story was full of emotional ups and downs. While his background isn’t a surprise to manga lovers, it has helped anime fans understand more about his character.
Mitsuri Kanroji’s ‘poison potato’ prank investigated
Mitsuri is a fun and kind hearted person without a rough bone in his body. So it’s no surprise that she tries to look scary to look more serious.
Anime fans see Mitsuri calling him a ‘poison potato’ during one of his encounters with Tanjiro and Nezuko. While the show doesn’t offer any further details, manga readers know that this is Mituri’s way of casting a spell (doesn’t do anything), almost like using the emoticon instead of Abracadabra.
In the manga, the author states that Mitsuri’s sword appears as a potato when sheathed. That’s when he uses the phrase “poison potato” and the author also adds that he’s trying to “sound menacingly.”
What has happened so far in season 3?
Season 3 of the show covers the Swordsmith Village arc and picks up where the story left off after the Mugen Train movie and Entertainment District arc.
Fans of Zenitsu and Inosuke may be a little disappointed that they’re not featured this season. However, viewers would see Mist Hashira, Muichiro Tokito and Love Hashira, Mitsuri Kanroji and demon hunter Genya.
Where to watch Demon Slayer season 3
Viewers can watch the third season of the series on Crunchyroll. Also available on Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. However, this is limited to certain Asian countries.
