Did Muzan kill Tanjiro Kamado in Demon Slayer?

Chapter 201 of the Demon Slayer manga takes fans by surprise with a tragic event. Tanjiro died temporarily during his fight against the main antagonist of the series, Muzan.

It is then that Muzan discovers a frightening potential in the boy’s body and decides to take it for him. For this, Muzan transferred his conscience to Tanjiro, which made the Demon Hunter the Demon King.

However, Tanjiro is also revived and fights for his body. With the help of Nezuko and medicines, the demon transformation is delayed and the boy manages to subdue Muzan’s will and consciousness within his body.

Demon Slayer chapter 205 is a time jump in history. There, we see Tanjiro’s successors and everyone is living happily, which suggests that the demons’ reign is finally over. Unfortunately, the manga didn’t reveal how Tanjiro exactly die. But knowing that they have already defeated the demons, it is safe to assume that Tanjiro Kamado dies due to his age.
