“Just go to hell, jerk”

“Hello? Are you okay?”.

“But now, I’m a little tired.”

“That’s why everyone hates you.”

“Well…..yeah, I guess I’m always angry”.

“Good evening. It’s a beautiful moon tonight, isn’t it?”.

“Humans and demons, we must come together.”

“Is that right? That sounds sad! I’ll save you! Let’s be friends.”

“Please don’t start some long, rambling story from a long time ago.”

“You’re probably still mad about me pointing out how people don’t like you?”

“When you fall in love with a boy one day, you’ll change too, Kanao.”

“Oh, sorry. You are already dead and cannot hear me. I completely forgot about it.”

“Deep down deep within my body. There is a rebellion that I cannot fight. “

“And after you have endured all the pain and suffering, your sins will be forgiven.”

“If you don’t get punished after taking all of their lives, your victims will never get justice.”

“You will receive the punishment you deserve and you will be reborn. That way, you and I can be friends.”

“I dream that we can make friends with demons. I’m sure you can pull it off!”

“Apathy? Much more than that. You killed my sister didn’t you? Don’t you remember this Haori?”

“Yes, I am angry, Tanjiro. I have always been angry. My parents were killed. My elder sister was killed. And all my suguko were killed except for Kanao. If the demons hadn’t killed the girls’ family, they would be living happily with them right now. It really pisses me off!”
