Chainsaw Man Season 2 is set to be in the works, and the fans can’t keep calm anymore! Season 1 has officially come to its end with just 12 episodes airing. The story has a lot to unfold, and the last episode ended up hanging on a cliff!
Chainsaw Man is an anime series based on the same name as its manga series. This anime began broadcasting recently and has already reached its season finale. It has been one of the most highly anticipated anime ever, illustrated by Tatsuki Fujimoto and produced by MAPPA.
Plot and Characters
Denji, an underprivileged young man, enters into a bargain that merges his flesh with that of a dog-like devil named Pochita, allowing him to change sections of his body into chainsaws. Denji finally joins the Public Safety Devil Hunters, a government organization dedicated to combating devils anytime they threaten Japan.
The ending of Chainsaw Man Season 1
The last episode of Chainsaw Man has left the fans with many questions that are yet to unfold. Although, people who have read the manga know what is coming in the future.
DISCLAIMER: SPOILERS AHEAD!
Aki vs. the Ghost Devil: In the last episode, we saw how Aki finally overcame his fears while remembering Himeno during a fight with the Ghost Devil. The Ghost Devil is holding him by his neck, but for some reason, he drops him down, hands him a cigarette, and enables Aki to kill him. The fact that the Ghost Devil cannot see through her eyes and senses the opponent’s fear of killing them helps Aki to win the fight. At the same time, Kobeni creeps up behind Akane, the lady who commands the snake devil, and places a knife to her neck.
Denji vs. Katana Man: Denji approaches the floor where Katana Man was hiding while Power was fighting the undead. After a brief conversation, Denji quickly transforms into his hybrid form after initially seeing Katana Man in his human form. The two devil-hybrids then leap out the window and engage in a vicious fight on the rooftops of neighboring buildings. Finally, they’re on a train, trying to understand one other’s points of view. The conversation, however, comes to an abrupt halt since Denji is receptive to hearing his points of view.
The fight became brutal as soon as they entered the train’s cabin, endangering the other passengers. While Katana Man began conquering Denji by slicing off his limbs, Chainsaw’s life seemed to be coming to an end. But Denji swiftly had the upper hand in the situation when a small chainsaw sprang from his legs and sliced Katana Man in half. Katana Man, being a hybrid, survives the attack and reverts to his human form.
Chainsaw Man Season 2 Connections with the Ending of Season 1
Chainsaw Man Season 2 is still in the works, and the fans might have to wait for it. Chainsaw Man Season 2, however, has kept the fans anticipating what they are going to expect in the upcoming season.
We see in the post-credits scene that Denji is having an unusual dream in which he is standing next to a door that has several papers attached to it. Pochita’s voice cautions him not to open the door. Later on, a mystery girl is seen heading in the direction of what may be a café asking a weird question “Denji, country mouse and city mouse, who do you think is better?”
Chainsaw Man Season 2 fans who have already read the manga knows who exactly the girl is. In Chainsaw Man Season 2, we can expect the fifth arc, which is the arc of the Bomb Devil hybrid, aka Reze. The anime seems to follow the manga in certain aspects, and we can expect to see some major characters introduced in Chainsaw Man Season 2. Chainsaw Man Season 2 will portray the fifth arc of the first part of the manga, which we will get to see in the upcoming episodes.
In Chainsaw Man Season 2, we might also see how the anime furthers by addressing the issue of those unusual dreams that Denji keeps seeing. We might also get to know why Pochita begs Denji not to open the door.
