The Nightmare Ends ( (あく) () () わる Akumu ni owaru?) is the sixty-second chapter of Koyoharu Gotōge's Kimetsu no Yaiba.


Enmu screams

His neck severed, Enmu unleashes a terrible scream

Tanjirou's attack completely severs Enmu's neck, causing the Lower Moon to unleash a terrible scream and break into pieces. The piece of the Demonic train that Tanjirou and Inosuke are on begins to fall sideways, with the former's earlier wound from the conductor suddenly flaring with pain. Inosuke notes this with concern, but Tanjirou tells him to protect the passengers, his only concern living so that the conductor doesn't become a murderer. The young Demon Hunter is cast a short distance from the inevitable train wreck, with Inosuke immediately attending to him.

Enmu dies

Enmu expires

Tanjirou asks Inosuke to help the trapped and badly injured conductor, and after a mild argument, the latter agrees to do so. Tanjirou then attempts to stabilize his breathing, wanting to go help the injured passengers. A short distance away, what remains of Enmu notes with disbelief his body's continued disintegration, his lack of regeneration, and his entire scheme's failure. He further notes the interference of Kyoujurou, Zenitsu, and Nezuko with frustration, but expresses the most anger towards Tanjirou and Inosuke, attempting to maneuver his crumbling body towards them. This ultimately failing, the Lower Moon laments his inability to ascend to the rank of Upper Moon, desperately wanting a redo as he finally expires.

The arrival

Something lands next to Tanjirou and Kyoujurou

Kyoujurou compliments Tanjirou on being able to constantly perform full focus breaths, stating that he is one step closer to becoming a Pillar. He then notes the youth's injury, a broken blood vessel, and instructs him on how to stop the bleeding. Tanjirou puts all of his focus on stopping the hemorrhage, with support from his superior, and eventually succeeds. Kyoujurou explains that if he masters his breathing, he will be able to do a multitude of things, and also informs the youth that all the passengers are safe. Without warning, something lands near the two, causing a large explosion.
