Butterfly Mansion ( (ちょう) () (しき) Chō yashiki?) is the forty-eighth chapter of Koyoharu Gotōge's Kimetsu no Yaiba.


Muichiro's anger at Tanjiro for interrupting their leader

Shinobu suggests that Tanjiro be taken care of at her place and instructs two of the Kakushi to take him there. Kagaya attempts to start the Hashira Meeting, but Tanjiro interrupts him, still wanting to butt heads with Sanemi for hurting his sister. As the Kakushi members struggle to deal with the irate youth, Muichiro throws a pebble at Tanjiro for interrupting his leader, ordering them to leave. As they do so, Kagaya asks Tanjiro to give Tamayo his regards, much to the young Demon Slayer's confusion. He is then rushed to the Butterfly Mansion, despite his numerous questions, by his enraged escort.

The Kakushi and Tanjiro find one of the Butterfly Mansion's residents

Arriving at their destination, the Kakushi hesitate to enter the building uninvited, deciding to check the garden for any residents. They then encounter the Tsuguko, Kanao Tsuyuri, and attempt to ask her permission to enter the premises, but she ignores them, too engrossed with admiring the garden's butterflies. They are then startled by another of the Mansion's residents, who demands to know who they are. As they fumble to explain themselves, the girl recognizes them as Kakushi and asks if Tanjiro is hurt, instructing them to follow her without waiting for a reply.

Tanjiro and Zenitsu reunite

Elsewhere in the building, Zenitsu is complaining to another resident about the medicine he has to take. Tanjiro, the Kakushi, and the resident girl arrive, with the latter scolding Zenitsu for his constant complaining. Tanjiro and Zenitsu renuite, the scarred youth asking his friend if he is alright, and Zenitsu responding by bitterly complaining about everything he has been through since the Natagumo Mountain incident. Tanjiro asks Zenitsu about Inosuke and Murata, and the towheaded youth tells him that Inosuke is right next to him. Tanjiro asks Inosuke to forgive him for not coming back to help him, but is told not to worry about it. Dumbfounded by Inosuke's different sounding voice, Tanjiro is told by Zenitsu about their friend's condition: a badly injured throat.

After a rundown of Tanjiro, Zenitsu, Inosuke, and Nezuko's respective conditions, the four comrades take a much deserved rest. They are later visited by Murata, who explains what happened to him when he was summoned to the Hashira Meeting, and Shinobu, who tells them that their Rehabilitation training was about to begin.
