Chainsaw Man might be gaining more popularity thanks to its anime adaptation arriving next month, but the manga has continued with a new protagonist at the helm following Denji's starring role in the earliest chapters. With the War Devil now sitting in the spotlight, an unexpected source has been revealed to be planning a massacre and it is not the person you might think. In a world filled with devils, it's still possible for humans to supply the Earth with evil in Tatsuki Fujimoto's franchise.
Warning. If you have yet to read the latest chapter of Chainsaw Man, Chapter 105, you might want to steer clear as we'll be diving into some serious spoiler territory.
When Asa began her unfortunate path of attempting to fight the Chainsaw Man, at the request of the War Devil who has an ax to grind with Denji, she was partnered with a young woman named Yuko as a part of her high school's "Devil Hunting Club". It was in their first "mission" that they both came to realize how out of their depth they truly were as they were both nearly eaten alive by the Bat Devil, before they were saved by Denji, who was fighting the Cockroach Devil at the time.
Taking the opportunity to kick back following the stressful past few days, Asa shared some deep secrets with Yuko, with the latter revealing that she had struck a chord with the Justice Devil to read the minds of those around her, allowing Mikata's friend to learn of her bargain with the War Devil. In a friendly but disturbing manner, Yuko reveals her plans for the near future:
"It's okay when it's in the name of justice. I made the contract to save you, Asa. I'm gonna get rid of your bullying problem. Don't come to school tomorrow."
We first saw the Justice Devil as the one responsible for killing Asa in the first chapter of Chainsaw Man's second part, pushing forward the deal between the high schooler and the War Devil. Seemingly bouncing back faster than expected, it would seem that Yuko is planning to do something terrible in a bid to help her new friend, presenting a horrific scenario that might cause Asa to spring into action.
What do you think Yuko has planned following her bargain with the Justice 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 Chainsaw Man.
