Mitsuri was one of the few pillars who accepted the Kamado siblings in the beginning and didn't want them to get hurt by her fellow pillars.
Later in the story, when Mitsuri gets to know Tanjiro and Nezuko, she's usually seen cuddling, patting or playing with Nezuko whenever she's with her, a noticeably different reaction than from other demon slayers; who usually react to Nezuko with either fear or hostility. Nezuko seems to enjoy Mitsuri's attention, as she can be seen hugging Mitsuri and showing a bright attitude toward her.
This ship is not very popular due to the age difference between Nezuko and Mitsuri, many fans prefer to see their relationship as a friendship or a platonic ship. They are usually portrayed in fanon works the same way as in canon, with Nezuko and Mitsuri sharing a sisterly bond and being affectionate with one another.
In the canonverse, Mitsuri joined the demon slayers to look for a man that will love her, this is often changed in fanon works to being Mitsuri simply trying to find someone to be the object of her affections. Seeing as most people are intimidated by her advancements, with the exception being Nezuko, Mitsuri clings to her and Nezuko thrives in Mitsuri's attention. Most fanon works are very fluffy and sweet.
- Nezuko loves getting her hair braided like Mitsuri's.
