Mitsuri Kanroji was born with 4 other siblings. Their mother, who is also known for her strength is still surprised by the extraordinary strength of Mitsuri. Her unique muscle composition, which is eight times denser than an ordinary human, made her stronger compared to most people. Her enormous strength requires her to have a large appetite. She ate too much sakura mochi that the color of her hair started changing to the color of sakura, pink. When she turned 17, the intended marriage did not proceed as she was seen as a freak and someone different.
She dyed her hair and ate little when after she was rejected. She was then approached by a potential partner but she started to doubt if pretending to be something she is not will work out till the end. It was not known if she was the one who left him or someone else. Oyakata then approached her and told her that there is nothing wrong with being extremely strong. She was encouraged to be different and recognize her extraordinary strength. Six months after training, she finally joined the Demon Slayer Corps and rose to the rank of the Hashira using her extraordinary strength.
Mitsuri loves praising her fellow Hashira. When they met during the Rehabilitation Arc, she praised the actions of her fellow Hashira as well as their scars. She gets mortified when she heard that Kyojuro Renguko died. Mitsuri improved her bond with Tanjiro and Nezuko in the Swordsmith Village. They ate together and she was even able to influence Tanjiro to have a huge appetite because of how much she eats. Tanjiro asked her why she joined the Corps. She was hesitant to answer but she confessed that she joined the Corps because she wants to meet a man who is stronger than her.
Mitsuri believes that women want a man stronger than them, a man who can protect them. If she joins the Demon Slayer Corps and becomes a Hashira, she will be able to join such strong men. Tanjiro is surprised by the reason but Mitsuri noted that it is not the first time it happened. As they continue to have a conversation, Mitsuri complimented Tanjiro for surviving his fight with and Upper Moon. She told them that it is essential for his growth as a demon slayer and Tanjiro had been stronger since the last time they met.
After she left the village and went back to her district, the Upper Moon 4 and 5 attacked the hidden Swordsmith Village. When she heard of the attack she immediately returned to the village to help the other members of the Corps who are fighting the Upper Moons. She got angry with the Upper Moons seeing that they were hurting the other members of the Corps. As she assists them in the fight, she was able to display her swordsmanship and the different forms of her Love Breathing style. It was during this time that she was able to awaken her Demon Slayer Mark.
In their last battle against Muzan, Mitsuri was out of commission and was brought by Obanai away from the battle. She did not want to go or be a burden to her colleagues. She insisted on still fighting. When Obanai left so he could go back to the battle. Mitsuri told him to come back. Obanai never came back, and Mitsuri can only wish that they will be reincarnated and in their next life, they can be together.

She is also seen wearing navy blue thigh-high socks layered with the vertically striped lime-green socks that Obanai gave her. She also wears a white zori with pink straps. When she fought Muzan, her left and back braids were cut off. She also lost both her arms.
Mitsuri is a very emotional person. She is jolly, passionate, and loves complimenting people. The Hashira of Love is always flustered, shy, and extremely kind to others. Mitsuri is exceptionally kind to Obanai, who turns out she has a huge crush on. Mitsuri is the kind who would not show mercy to demons. She is one of the most dedicated members of the Demon Slayer Corps. Her reason for joining the Corps is for her to find a suitable husband, and she felt guilty towards her reason for joining the Corps.
