Final chapter reveals who Nezuko ends up with
The penultimate chapter of the manga featured a huge time skip. It moved the world of the series three generations forward to modern day Tokyo. It’s implied that the characters from the original series have died and was consequently reincarnated.
However, what put the fans into a wave of delirium was the fact that Nezuko, Tanjiro’s sister, had children with someone chasing her the entire series. In the finale, Nezuko and Zenitsu’s great grandchildren, Yoshiteru and Toko Agatsuma, looked exactly like them.
Unsurprisingly, Zenitsu’s reincarnated self is still overprotective and jealous of those who get close to Nezuko. In the finale’s scene, Yoshiteru reads a book titled The Legend of Zenitsu and discusses the idea of reincarnation with his sister Toko. The lad further said,
“I believe that everyone who fought demons and died for a peaceful world was reborn into a happier life.”
