Chainsaw Man wasn’t about to let fans down
The series is back with new chapters, and creator Tatsuki Fujimoto is putting his all into part two.
The hit manga launched chapter 98 through Shueisha earlier today, and the big chapter sets up a world of trouble for Denji even his whole ordeal with Makima. As you can see here, Viz Media’s Shonen Jump catalog has the new chapter ready to gov. The new chapter is available in English for stateside fans to read. So if you want to meet a headless chicken devil, well – your time has come.
This new part comes after Fujimoto wrapped the first major section of Chainsaw Man in 2020. At that time, the artist told fans they would bring the series back for part two at some point. Work got underway on the comeback as soon as possible while Fujimoto juggled other work for Shueisha. After all, the artist released a slew of one-shots since Chainsaw Man went into hiatus, and the critical hits have turned Fujimoto into one of the industry’s most beloved creators.
Now, Chainsaw Man is back, and that means Denji has a lot to do. So if you are not caught up on the series, you can check out the manga digitally or in print through Viz Media right now. And for those who want more details, you can read the series’ official synopsis below: “Denji was a small-time devil hunter just trying to survive in a harsh world. After being killed on a job, he is revived by his pet devil-dog Pochita and becomes something new and dangerous-Chainsaw Man!”
Chainsaw Man Part 2 Poster Reveals New Character
Chainsaw Man is on the cusp of its next era, and all eyes are on the hit series ahead of its big return. After all, artist Tatsuki Fujimoto will bring the manga back to fans this week with part two after a long wait. The series is set to drop its comeback on July 13th, and now, we have been given a special ad for part two.
And as you can see below, the poster looks pretty wild. There seems to be a new character gracing the Chainsaw Man ad, and they have Denji by the head in this shot. The black-white ad may be simple, but Chainsaw Man fans are already taking apart the artwork piece by piece. The poster shows a young woman in what appears to be a school uniform with their dark hair pulled back. In their hands, fans can see the decapitated head of Chainsaw Man himself while blood pools over its shadow. And for some reason, the character is backed by a headless chicken with a bow tied around their neck.
This unfamiliar character is also featured in a second ad for Chainsaw Man part two, so it seems Fujimoto has big plans for the heroine. However, fans cannot settle on whether they’ve met this character before. Some believe the girl is tied to Aki somehow while others think she is totally new to the story. Obviously, readers will find out soon as Chainsaw Man is just days out from its comeback. So if you are not caught up with the series, you can binge the manga through Manga Plus or the Shonen Jump app.
