Chainsaw Man: Did You Notice Power's Connection to Denji's Return?

Chainsaw Man is slated to be one of the biggest anime series of 2022. With the story of Denji continuing in the second chapter of the series, following a brand new protagonist, Denji recently returned after being away for quite some time. With the Chainsaw Devil's comeback, readers also witnessed a powerful Easter Egg that called back to the female devil that was a valued ally to Denji while also becoming a fan favorite in the series created by Tatsuki Fujimoto.

Warning. If you have yet to read the latest chapter of Chainsaw Man, Chapter 102, you might want to steer clear as we'll be diving into spoiler territory.

The first batch of chapters of the bloody manga from Tatsuki Fujimoto came to an end with Power being tragically eliminated by none other than Makima, using the power of the Gun Devil to kill the fan-favorite devil hunter. Besides being loud, abrasive, and quite the force to be reckoned with during a fight, Power also had an affinity for felines, with her bond with a stray cat in the earlier parts of the series eventually leading her to join the Devil Hunters. 

So how does Denji pay homage to his dead friend? During his fight with the horrifying Cockroach Devil, Chainsaw Man is presented with a choice between saving a car full of elderly citizens or one student with a "bright future". Surprisingly, Denji chooses neither, taking the opportunity to cut through this new villain while saving a cat that was barely hanging on to the side of a building. Despite allowing a number of people to die during the confrontation, the news declares it "another heroic act", continuing this new trend of having the Chainsaw Man be regarded as one of the biggest superheroes in the world.

While Denji is back, there are still a lot of questions surrounding our hero, as little has been revealed as to what the Chainsaw Devil has been up to since the first arc of the series came to an end. While Power hasn't been resurrected, as far as we know, it seems that the heroine definitely left an impact on Denji.

Do you think Power will somehow return to the series after being killed by the Gun Devil? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of Chainsaw Man
