Weeping ( (おお) () Ō naki?) is the eighty-fifth chapter of Koyoharu Gotōge's Kimetsu no Yaiba.

Summary

Nezuko cries after Tanjiro's lullaby makes her come to her senses

Tanjiro is left shocked by Tengen's swift victory over Daki, but the Sound Hashira reminds him that the fight isn't over, as his sister is still out of control. Tanjiro struggles to restrain her, with Tengen suggesting he sing her a lullaby to put her to sleep. At that moment, Nezuko regains her footing and jumps out of the window, taking her brother with her as they continue to struggle. Realizing his words aren't reaching her, Tanjiro asks his mother what he should do, and then remembers Tengen's earlier advice to sing Nezuko a lullaby.

He begins to sing her a song that their mother had sung in the past, and while her actions remain unchanged at first, his lullaby soon reaches her. Nezuko remembers asking their mother about the song when she was a child, causing her to break down in tears. Nezuko comes to her senses and changes from her advanced demonized form back into her regular child-like state, promptly falling asleep. Tanjiro lets out a relieved sigh as he successfully holds Nezuko in his lap.

Daki begins to throw a tantrum over Tengen denying her Upper Rank status

Back in the house, Daki screams at Tengen for cutting her head off, and he responds by telling her to die quietly. The enraged Demon reminds him that he had denied her Upper Rank status, which he affirms, but she proceeds to insist her status, much to his annoyance.

Emerging from her body, Daki's brother confronts Tengen

To the Hashira's astonishment, Daki begins to throw a tantrum and cry, and he notes that she has been talking for far too long when she should have showed signs of dying. Still throwing her tantrum, Daki calls out to "Gyutaro" to save her and a male Demon begins to emerge from her body. Tengen senses the danger and attempts to immediately attack the two, but his blades hit nothing but air as the Demons disappear from his sight. On the other side of the room behind Tengen, Gyutaro comforts Daki, asking that she at least try to reattach her own head. Tengen wonders why Daki is still alive after being beheaded, as well as the presence of the new Demon, who he comments as having great reaction speed. Gyutaro tells Daki to heal her burn, complimenting her good looks, and wounds Tengen when he attempts to attack them again.

Gyutaro compliments Tengen's attempt to attack him as well as his success at blocking his attack. He reveals that he was intending to kill Tengen with that attack and eerily prepares to him on in a battle.
