Chainsaw Man Creator Shares One of Denji's Nastiest Secrets

Even the biggest anime series need to let loose, you know? From Naruto to Demon Slayer, the industry's top titles know when to spark laughter, and Chainsaw Man is following in those steps. Despite its dark action, the series has one of the demographic's biggest jokesters in the form of Denji. Fans were reminded of that this week when the anime's latestt episode hit Aki with a prank, and now, the series creator has revealed what exactly Denji and Power did to their mentor. 

The update comes straight from Fujimoto himself, so there is little room for error. Recently, the artist took to Twitter to live-tweet his reaction to Chainsaw Man episode five. It was there fans watched as Power and Denji gossiped about a prank they pulled on Aki. And now, we have learned what the two did exactly.

What Was the Prank?

According to Fujimoto, Power and Denji did take things too far. The pair somehow got Aki to smear feces on his nose, so yeah – the hunter's reaction makes sense now. Who would not be upset if they were pranked with something that vile?

"They put poop on Aki's nose in the morning, but I didn't write that part down," Fujimoto tweeted. So, there you have it.

Clearly, Denji and Power took things too far, so they should be happy Aki did not kill him. The hunter was certainly considering it. His anger at the two is painfully relatable, and any older sibling can testify as much. In a matter of days, Aki has gone from being a loner to an aggrieved older brother with two rather rambunctious roommates. And if they try to pull a stunt like this again, well – Aki may sick one of his contracts on the two.
