The Doctor's Opinion ( () () (けん) (かい) Ishi no kenkai?) is the fifteenth chapter of Koyoharu Gotōge's Kimetsu no Yaiba.


The chapter begins with an enraged udon vendor yelling at Nezuko for not eating his food. She sits there puzzled by his anger until Tanjirou returns and takes the chopsticks from the vendors hands and quickly slurps down the noodles. He thanks and compliments the vendor's cooking before leaving with Nezuko, and the man is left somewhat angry but still flattered by his compliment.

As they walk down the street, Tanjirou apologizes for leaving Nezuko alone but is suddenly stopped by her wariness of a man at the end of the street. Tanjirou calls out the man who turns out to be Yushiro, letting him know that there was no need to wait for him as he could've followed the scent back to the hideout. The man rejects his claim saying that there was no way that they could be tracked and questions Nezuko's presence -since she's a demon- while simultaneously calling her a hag. Tanjirou is insulted by his remark and bickers arguing that his sister is in fact beautiful despite wearing the muzzle.

They travel behind the man until they arrive back at the hideout, when they enter the building they stumble upon the demon lady treating the injured woman who was attacked by her spouse. Out of curiosity, Tanjirou questions if its hard for the woman to resist wanting to attack the humans that she treats. Before she is able to respond, the man elbows Tanjirou and berates him for asking such a ridiculous question. The woman calls for the man, Yushiro, to stop being violent and formally introduces herself as Tamayo.

She looks back at Tanjirou and answers his question, she explains that she is different from normal demons since she has altered her body and removed Muzan's curse. She goes into detail saying that she doesn't need to feed on human flesh, and only needs to drink small amounts of human blood in order to survive.
