Chainsaw Man Chap 153 The long-standing question regarding Makima’s reincarnation may finally be answered.
Chainsaw Man took a very different approach to the start of the Academy’s new story, moving away from Public Safety and the fierce battles of Demons, focusing on the new protagonist, Asa, finding his footing. with a new “roommate” and another day of Denji living until trouble comes knocking on the Chainsaw Man’s door. Don’t worry, there’s still plenty of fierce Devils fighting left.
In recent chapters, we have moved away from Asa; Denji went through it with thoughts of leaving himself and Nayuta behind and just becoming Chainsaw Man full-time, reveling in the notoriety and fame of being a chainsaw-wielding superhero. .
However, in the latest chapter, Denji may go against what he wants but may also confirm Nayuta’s opinion about Chainsaw Man.
Chainsaw Man Chapter 153 pushes Makima and Nayuta further apart
The long-held idea that Nayuta could be Makima and just take some time to get back to that time may be a worry of the past, as a key scene in the new chapter shows Nayuta’s perspective on the character our main, Denji.
Makima doesn’t want much to do with Denji in A Story of Public Safety but knows she has to put up with his immaturity to get closer to Chainsaw Man. Uninterested in Denji’s humanity or anything he particularly cares about or desires, not his friends or his dreams, Makima only sees Chainsaw Man every time she looks at Denji.
Nayuta is the reincarnation of the Control Devil to continue after Denji took down Makima in the last story arc. Nayuta is quite childish and doesn’t have many interests outside of the family. So when Denji fails to become Chainsaw Man, frankly stating that Nayuta should probably stay away from him, from her point of view, we see that whenever she looks at Denji, she really looks see Denji, not Chainsaw Man.
Fans have also pointed out this school of thought on the Chainsaw Man subreddit, with u/Zekriy sharing images from the manga to reinforce the point:
Denji wants to become Chainsaw Man again, but he has fallen into a situation where people no longer like their tree-chopping hero, destroying any hope of him ever becoming a savior. big which he hopes will return from previous chapters. Instead of focusing on his comments, Nayuta redoubles his efforts and tries to save Denji from the rowdy crowd of citizens angry at the outbreak of Saw-Headed Demons that is causing havoc across the world.
Nayuta proves that she is not Makima as the previous worries can seemingly be resolved after seeing her certain that she only sees Denji for who he really is, an older brother take care of her and their pets. However, at the same time, having someone protect instead of controlling, strangely goes against the nature of the Controlling Devil.
