A Change of Strategy ( (さく) (せん) (へん) (こう) Sakusen henkō?) is the ninety-first chapter of Koyoharu Gotōge's Kimetsu no Yaiba.

Summary

On a nearby rooftop, Inosuke can see Tengen move in as he attempts to cut off Gyutaro's head. His frustration grows as they continue to evade Daki's attacks instead of move in to try to decapitate her. Zenitsu calls out to Inosuke and explains that in order to defeat them, they just need to make sure their heads aren't connected instead of trying to decapitate the two simultaneously. Inosuke comically looks at Zenitsu amazed and calls him awesome after seeing the difference in his personality compared to his usual demeanor.

Gyutaro catches Tengen's blade

Gyutaro catches Tengen's blade in his mouth.

Meanwhile, Tanjiro assists Tengen by also trying to swing his blade down onto Gyutaro's neck, however the Demon manages to use his sickles to halt both of their attacks and attempts to absorb their blades. Tengen uses his free arm to use his second blade to pierce the Gyutaro, but his quick reflexes allow him to catch the tip of the blade in his mouth. Sensing that Gyutaro is about to unleash more blood blades, Tengen tells Tanjiro to hang in there as Hinatsuru yanks Tanjiro away from them, allowing Tengen to leap off of the roof while pulling the Demon with him.

Before he can leap down to help them, a voice can be heard telling them to watch out as Inosuke and Zenitsu crash onto the roof while fighting the obi. Inosuke and Zenitsu ask Tanjiro for help in order to defeat Daki, and agrees asking that they finish quickly in order to help Tengen. Hinatsuru tells the boys that she will hide quickly in order to allow them to focus on the battle, and disappears as they face Daki.

Thunderclap and Flash - Eightfold

Inosuke, Tanjiro and Zenitsu attacking Daki.

She gets excited when Tanjiro joins their fight and informs his comrades that they need a fast attack in order to cut her neck. Inosuke realizes that she has slowed down and decides to go first to attack as Zenitsu agrees with Tanjiro to protect him from behind. Inosuke proceeds to dash forward using Beast Breathing: Eighth Fang - Explosive Rush while Zenitsu and Tanjiro use Thunder Breathing: First Form - Thunderclap and Flash Eightfold and Water Breathing: Third Form - Flowing Dance respectively, to protect Inosuke from the obi.

Daki begins to crack under the pressure as Inosuke close in on her, and manages to draw both of his blades on either side of her neck. Inosuke buries his heels into the ground as he uses Beast Breathing: Sixth Fang - Palisade Bite to effectively decapitate Daki. Tanjiro smiles with joy as he witnesses Inosuke leap and catch Daki's head in the air, rejoicing at successfully cutting off her head.
