Chapter 150 recap
Chainsaw Man chapter 150 begins with Denji and Nayuta walking through back alleys to get to their home. As they do so, they comment on how peaceful everything seems despite the situation, such as people going to work as bodies are loaded into a truck nearby. Nayuta comments on how she may have school tomorrow, while Denji daydreams of his normal life thus far and everything he was able to experience as a result.
He happily tells Pochita that he has achieved their dream of living an ordinary life and that he doesn’t need to be Chainsaw Man because he’s so happy in his normal life. Denji then steps on a crow and, when looking back at it, sees that it turns into Pochita. Pochita says their dream came true, to which a now-childhood version of Denji responds he knows. Pochita then asks Denji what he’ll dream of next, suggesting money or having a lot of girlfriends.
Denji responds that his next dream is to be Chainsaw Man, as a return to reality reveals that Barem Bridge and other Church members have burned their apartment to the ground. Denji tries racing in to save the pets but is tripped by Barem, who taunts him about his dead pets. As Denji reaches for his starter, Fumiko Mifune and others arrive and shoot up Barem. However, the chapter ends with Mifune and co being attacked by the Whip Hybrid.
What to expect (speculative)
Considering there are now two Weapon Hybrids to deal with, Chainsaw Man chapter 151 will almost certainly see Denji transform into Chainsaw Man. However, the true question will be whether or not he does so before Mifune and Nayuta are seriously hurt, especially after the Whip Hybrid assaults them.
Chainsaw Man chapter 151 should also see Nayuta attempt to get involved in the fight once she registers the initial shock and trauma of learning that her pets have died. Should the two of them begin fighting together, fans can expect Barem and the Whip Hybrid to be overwhelmed quickly.
