Since Demon Slayer tackled Tanjiro’s journey, the whole story did not happen in just a year. When the series started, Tanjiro is 13 years old. It was during this age when he found his whole family dead and his remaining sister was turned into a demon.

He then trained under Sakonji for two whole years where he was introduced to the water breathing technique, and he improved his innate skills. He was 15 years old when he became part of the demon slayer corps. Joining the organization meant he had to undergo different missions with his friends. By Chapter 204, he is 16 years old.

Within that short span of time, Tanjiro did not only grow old but also became stronger. He gained a lot of skills like total concentration, water breathing style, Dance of the Fire God, and Thunder Breathing, among others.

Of course, he has other innate abilities like the enhanced smell, animal communication, and a hard head. A lot of things might have changed in Tanjiro but his big kind heart remained the same. He would feel bad for the demons he killed even if he knew they were evil. Tanjiro’s kindness made him one of the popular protagonists in the anime world.
