Chainsaw Man has been roaring this fall anime season, with the first episodes introducing us to the often tragic, often hilarious world of Denji and his fellow Devil Hunters. Ever since Shonen’s protagonist merged with his faithful dog, Pochita, and inherited the power of the Chainsaw Devil, he has found himself under the watchful eye of Makima, the head of the devil hunting division who clearly has some secrets up his sleeve. Now a fan is leaning into the sinister undertones of Denji’s “frenemy”.
For anime fans, not many questions have been answered when it comes to Makima, her goals, and her true desires that lead her to recruit the likes of the Chainsaw Devil, the Blood Fiend, and the human monster hunter known as Aki. While fans who have read the manga know all about Makima’s ultimate plan, the main devil hunter is absent from the second chapter of the Chainsaw Man manga, leaving fans wondering when she’ll appear after the shocking conclusion to Denji’s first full story. In the second part of the series, we were introduced to a new protagonist in Asa Mitaka, a high school student who has made an agreement with the war devil and has a serious grudge against Denji.
Instagram Cosplayer Felvelial shared this new take on Chainsaw Man Makima, using some stylish effects to hint at the threat bubbling beneath the surface as she plays her devil hunters like a woman moving pieces across a chessboard:
If you haven’t acted yet Chainsaw man so far, this is how Crunchyroll describes Studio MAPPA’s anime adaptation:
“Denji has a simple dream: to live a happy and peaceful life, spend time with a girl he likes. However, this is far from reality as Denji is forced by the yakuza to kill devils for his crushing debts.”
The first season of Chainsaw Man won’t reveal all of Makima’s secrets before it comes to a close, as the MAPPA production will have a dozen episodes before Denji takes a bow. While a second season hasn’t been confirmed yet, MAPPA has stated in the past that they want to adapt all of creator Tatsuki Fujimoto’s work and based on Denji’s popularity, it wouldn’t be a surprise to eventually see a new season. issued.
