Makima might not have the power of the Chainsaw Devil, but despite this, she remains one of the most terrifying characters of Tatsuki Fujimoto's Chainsaw Man. With the arrival of the anime adaptation this October, expect a number of new fans recognize how ruthless Makima can be when it comes to devil hunting, even when it comes to her own "employees". Now, one cosplayer has captured the look and aesthetic of the woman that holds Denji's leash.
Without going too deeply into spoiler territory, Makima's role in Chainsaw Man shifts quite ostensibly throughout the series from Tatsuki Fujimoto. While the mentor of Denji who keeps him in line hasn't appeared in the second part of the manga, fans are counting down the days until she returns to the series, especially following her shocking status at the end of the first part of Tatsuki Fujimoto's manga masterpiece. In the upcoming anime adaptation which is set to arrive this October, Tomori Kusunoki will be playing the role of Makima for the Studio MAPPA series which might become the most popular series in the anime game for 2022.
Instagram Cosplayer Sailor Scholar shared this brand new take on the mysterious character of Chainsaw Man, with Makima having a dark secret that might be revealed in the upcoming first season of the anime adaptation arriving on Crunchyroll this fall:
Crunchyroll has an official description of the series if you have yet to read into the story of Chainsaw Man:
"Denji is a teenage boy living with a Chainsaw Devil named Pochita. Due to the debt his father left behind, he has been living a rock-bottom life while repaying his debt by harvesting devil corpses with Pochita. One day, Denji is betrayed and killed. As his consciousness fades, he makes a contract with Pochita and gets revived as "Chainsaw Man" — a man with a devil's heart."
A specific release date for Chainsaw Man has yet to be revealed, though as we inch closer to the fall, we would imagine that anime fans will know sooner rather than later when we can expect Makima to hit the small screen.
