Chapter 126 recap
Chainsaw Man chapter 126 began with Denji fighting the Falling Devil, with the two seemingly evenly matched at times. However, the Falling Devil eventually proved her superiority by using her mental attack on Denji, showing him images of Power and Aki Hayakawa and how they were just before their deaths.
In response, Denji cut up his own brain in order to stop the mental attack, then began eating the Falling Devil for an attack. After allowing herself to be eaten, she bursts out of Denji’s stomach, splitting him in two before departing. Denji’s consciousness was beginning to fade when he was suddenly approached by an unknown and unseen individual who gave him their blood.
As they gave Denji their blood, they told him that they needed him to keep on fighting, calling him Chainsaw Man here rather than Denji. As the issue came to a close, the Falling Devil tracked down Asa Mitaka and charged at her.
What to expect (speculative)
Unfortunately, Chainsaw Man chapter 127 will likely not reveal who the mystery individual from the previous chapter is. Author and illustrator Tatsuki Fujimoto’s modus operandi as a writer is one of mystery, suspense, and not giving an answer till is absolutely necessary. The fact that the impostor Chainsaw Man still hasn’t been revealed is a testament to this.
As such, the next issue will likely instead show Denji back up and running and ready to fight the Falling Devil again by its end. In the meantime, a focus will likely be given to Asa, who should come under attack from the Falling Devil’s mental offensive yet again. This is essentially a given, considering that making Asa “fall” is the final ingredient for the final dish.
Thankfully, Chainsaw Man chapter 127 should show Denji appearing and attacking the Falling Devil before Asa fully falls. While this will also likely require some fight on Asa’s part against the mental attack as well, it’s unlikely that fans will see her become a part of the Falling Devil’s culinary creations.
