One of the fan-favorite characters of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is Nezuko. For those who have not watched the series or read the manga yet, Demon Slayer follows the journey of Tanjiro and his sister named Nezuko. The siblings are on their way to find a cure to help Nezuko become a human again. Tanjiro also wanted to avenge his family who was massacred by Muzan, the Demon King.
What fans did not expect is that Nezuko actually gets to end up with someone towards the end of the series. It was revealed in Chapter 205, the last chapter of the manga, that she had her own family and great-grandchildren. But who could the lucky guy be?
The man who won Nezuko’s heart is no other than Zenitsu Agatsuma. Although a lot of fans might have expected it, considering that there are scenes showing Zenitu’s care for Nezuko and her enjoyment of his company, it was still surprising that the two ended up together.
Unfortunately, fans won’t be able to see how their love story blossomed but it was obvious in the time-skip that the two will be together as Yoshiteru and Toko Agatsuma look exactly like Nezuko and Zenitsu.
Fans have been aware of Zenitsu’s feelings for Nezuko the moment he met her. He has been like this with every female he met, but fans were quick to notice how special Nezuko is to Zenitsu’s heart. One example is that even if Zenitsu is afraid of demons, he still developed a crush on her.
He is not as aggressive as he is with other girls whenever he is with Nezuko. In fact, he would sometimes sit beside her box and tell her stories about their journey. He would also protect her whenever she is in danger, like what he did during Mugen Train.
These could be some reasons Nezuko eventually fell for him. Although there is no official announcement about how things went between the two of them, fans are happy that Nezuko found someone who would always be there for her, even if that person is afraid 90% of the time.
