Who are the Twelve Kizuki Upper Ranks?
With powers and fighting techniques far beyond those of the lower ranks, the upper ranks are demons so strong that not even a Hashira alone would be guaranteed to take one down. The upper ranks haven't changed in the last few hundred years and are said to have killed many Hashira so far. Daki and Gyutaro, for example, say that they have killed and devoured twelve Hashira. Shinobu Kocho herself stated that an upper-rank demon's strength is thought to be equivalent to three Hashira put together.
Kokushibo, Doma, Akaza, Hantengu, Gyokko, Daki, and Gyutaro, but also the new additions that will appear later in the story as replacements: Nakime and Kaigaku.
