The Nichirin Sword Returns ( (にち) (りん) (とう) (がえ) Nichirin tō gaeru?) is the fifty-first chapter of Koyoharu Gotōge's Kimetsu no Yaiba.


The chapter begins with Zenitsu and Inosuke staggering as they try to learn Full Breath techniques in order to advance with Tanjiro's skill. Despite numerous attempts, the two boys were unable to grasp the concept of the technique and struggled to master. During one of Tanjiro's lessosn, Shinbou interrupts to provide words of encouragement and guidance to both Inosuke and Zenitsu. However they react in different manors with Inosuke reacting in a hostile manor, even threatening to "rip [Shinobu's] breasts off" whereas Zenitsu reacts bashfully at reddens when she grabs his hand.
