If you’re into anime, then there is no doubt that you have either watched Demon Slayer, have it on your watchlist, or have been urged to watch it by a fellow anime fan. Demon Slayer is one of the most popular anime series of the past decade with a wonderful mix of tragedy, comedy, horror, thriller, and action. It is well known for its amazingly choreographed fight scenes, character design, and plot. Since the announcement of an anime adaptation, its popularity has risen. Because of Ufotable’s consistency, the adaptation contains some of the finest battle scenes in contemporary anime.
Nezuko Kamado, a sweet and lovely little girl and also probably the second most popular character after her older brother Tanjiro Kamado, is unexpectedly turned into a demon by Muzan. Demon Slayer is primarily about this older brother Tanjiro Kamado on a journey to find a cure and turn his sister back into a human. The question is, does Nezuko become human again? And if so, to what lengths will Tanjiro have to go to ensure that? Until now, the series has not shown anything regarding this. However, if you’ve read the manga, you know exactly what happens. If you’re too lazy to read the manga but can’t wait for the next season, here’s what you’re looking for.
The Kamado family lived in the mountains where it snowed heavily and Tanjiro was a coal seller who had to descend to a nearby town to sell coal. Nezuko, his little sister, was her mother’s helping hand in taking care of the rest of her siblings. We are already aware of the tragedy that has befallen the Kamado family. Tanjiro comes home to his entire family including his mother and six siblings slaughtered except for Nezuko, who has turned into a demon. Tanjiro, upon finding Nezuko breathing made haste to take her to the medic, when instead she attacked him and it was abundantly clear that she was no more a human. Amid Nezuko’s attack, Giyuu, a Demon Slayer, is set upon killing Nezuko. However, Tanjiro doesn’t let Giyuu hurt her, and Nezuko, unexpectedly showed some signs of her human self.
Giyuu understood that Tanjiro needed Urokodaki’s help (former Demon Slayer) and led Tanjiro to him. Urokodaki explains the Demon Slayer Corp and the demons to Tanjiro and also that an individual named Muzan was behind his family’s slaughter. Urokodaki helps Tanjiro become a Demon Slayer and Tanjiro makes it his life mission to bring back Nezuko. As Tanjiro heads on to the path of becoming a Demon Slayer, Urokodaki takes care of Nezuko and conditions her to not harm humans. Urokodaki, Tanjiro’s instructor, has a significant influence on Nezuko’s perceptions about humans other than Tanjiro. Urokodaki would show Nezuko a photo of her family whenever she encountered a human person. As a result, each person she encountered reminded her as a member of her family, evoking sentiments of adoration for humans.
Is it possible for Nezuko to turn human?
Even though it is true that humans may readily transform into demons, it does not work the other way around. Muzan Kibutsuji, the first demon, was the only creature who had the ability to change a human into a demon. Demons aren’t old; they’ve been around for ages, if not millennia.
They aren’t likely to be killed unless they are murdered by demon slayers, exposed to the sun, or killed by specified techniques. Hunger alone isn’t enough to kill them. It is revealed that Nezuko is, in fact, immune to sunlight and has an awakened form that gives her the upper edge in fighting the other demons. Since the beginning, Nezuko has stood out among the other demons. Demons prefer to feast on their family members because they’re more delicious to the demons, according to Giyuu.
In contrast to his expectations, he witnessed Nezuko defending Tanjiro rather than devouring him. As a result, these animals reverting to human form is unusual and unheard of.
Tanjiro met two demons, Tamayo and Yushiro, during the Asakusa Arc.
Except for the demon Nezuko, the demons were the only ones who were fully free of Muzan’s power. Tamayo is a doctor with a comprehensive grasp of both humans and demons. Apart from Muzan, Tamayo is the only demon that can turn a human into a demon. However she only did it to Yushiro once, and it was while she was gravely ill.
Tamayo had never heard of a demon turning back to human. She did, however, provide the demon Nezuko some aid and began researching the problem in the hopes that Tanjiro will be able to bring her blood from the 12 Kizuki, which might aid in solving the problem.
Does Nezuko Become Human Again?
Nezuko’s transformation back into a human took a long time and did not happen as quickly as Tanjiro’s. It all started in Chapter 147 of the Infinity Castle Arc when we discover that Urokodaki came back to Nezuko to look for her after giving her Tanayo’s medication to transform her back into a human. Nezuko, on the other hand, didn’t take the medicine properly and fell ill, which is why Urokodaki looked after her. It is revealed in the manga that Nezuko does finally turn back into human, with Tamayo’s medicines. As seen earlier, Tamayo is a demon who has dedicated her whole life to studying humans and demons, and is also the only other demon besides Muzan who can turn a human into a demon. She prepares the medicine with the blood of the 12 strongest demons (Kizuki) under Muzan.
Tanjiro, throughout the series, battling the 12 strongest demons (Kizuki) and defeating them, brings a sample of their blood to Tamayo. In Chapter 196 of the manga, Tamayo gives Nezuko the medicine that would turn Nezuko back to human.
What happens after Nezuko takes the medicine?
In Chapters 200 and 201, it can be seen that Nezuko slowly but gradually starts transforming back to human. She starts regaining her memory from when she was human but also from when she was a demon. She starts thinking and even speaking.
