Was Inosuke Really Abandoned By His Family?

In the "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba" series, Inosuke Hashibira's backstory is explored during the Natagumo Mountain Arc. Inosuke's family did not abandon him willingly; instead, it is revealed that he was raised by a wild boar. His mother died shortly after giving birth to him, and unable to fend for himself, he was adopted and raised by the boar.

Inosuke, growing up in the mountains with the boars, developed a feral and aggressive nature. As a result, he lacks the social and cultural norms typical of a human upbringing. This backstory provides insight into Inosuke's character, explaining his wild behavior and his initial lack of understanding of human customs when he first encounters Tanjiro Kamado and others.

It's important to note that the specifics of characters' backstories are revealed gradually throughout the series, and viewers learn more about Inosuke's past as the story progresses.
