Hey guys! In this post, we’ll be discussing chapter 197 of Kimetsu no Yaiba as well as the last chapter. This post contains heavy spoilers for the manga that may be disturbing to some of you. So please stop reading if you don’t want to be spoiled.
Kimetsu no Yaiba: Demon slayer chapter 197 Recap (spoiler) :
Chapter 196 of Demon Slayer starts where 195 left off. Nezuko. We see Nezuko remembering what happened to her the night she was attacked. Readers who were confused, here’s the answer. It was indeed Muzan who killed the Kamados. We see Muzan giving the Kamado family his blood in his hopes of finding a demon that could survive the sun, killing everyone except Nezuko in the process. We see beautiful panels of some of our favorite characters including the likes of Rengoku, Shinobu, Muichiro, Genya, Tengen, etc.
as a part of Nezuko’s memories. And Nezuko finally turns human after remembering who she is and what happened to her. Tanjirou and Iguro are still attacking Muzan who tries to pull his old trick of dividing his body and escaping. But to his surprise he stops or rather, is stopped by Tamayo’s medicine. Tamayo still continues to be a badass as she taunts Muzan from the afterlife saying that her medicine also has the effect of destroying Muzan’s cells from inside him as Muzan coughs up blood. Something that sets apart Demon Slayer from other shounen is this. The final villain is not soloed by a less experienced main character with last-minute power-ups but rather is going to be taken down as a result of a lot of collective effort with some major contributions like Yoriichi’s dating back centuries or Tamayo’s requiring nearly four hundred years of risky research.
Kimetsu no Yaiba: Demon slayer chapter 197 Predictions :
While a lot didn’t happen in Chapter 196, it did a good job of setting up what could be some important future developments. Firstly, it’s confirmed that none of the other pillars are dead. They are also getting treated by Yushiro. So I am sure we’ll see some of them in action soon. Loss of limbs or well half a body even does not stop a Pillar from giving their best in a fight. Secondly, we see Muzan on the verge of defeat here. Muzan is desperate here. And I expect him to pull off one last stunt to save himself.
Remember what happened when Kokushibo got desperate? He transformed into an even more menacing creature. So, it would not be wrong to expect Muzan to have a final trick up his sleeve. Now coming to Nezuko. What purpose would a human Nezuko serve in the battle? According to me, there are two things that could happen. An emotional reaction to a severely injured Tanjirou could make her feel very protective and cause her to transform temporarily into a demon again. She could help in the battle. The second possibility is that Nezuko could very well witness Tanjirou dying after realizing his dream of turning her into a human again. So overall, I see a continuation of the battle with the others joining in and Muzan maybe pulling another trick to survive next chapter. Remember there’s still 35 minutes left till dawn. don’t forget to check our last article too : Boku no Hero Academia Chapter 263 Spoilers

Will we get to see the other pillars in action one last time? Is Nezuko in danger? Is Tamayo’s medicine enough to help the pillars hold Muzan back for another 35 minutes?
