Chainsaw Man has been one of the best-selling manga series of 2023, and that’s not surprising considering the surreal storyline Tatsuki Fujimoto is writing. The series’ latest chapter might have been the start of Denji’s new journey and highlighted the genius of Tatsuki Fujimoto, which is often ignored or goes under the radar.
Chapter 151 of Chainsaw Man saw Denji’s everyday life going up in flames as his house burned. The hopes of him living an everyday life went up, depicting the death of the goals he set with Pochita at the beginning of the series, which was to be an ordinary high school student. Tatsuki Fujimoto perfectly conveyed the scene, making the readers realize his intentions for the story.
The latest Chainsaw Man chapter depicts how much of a genius Tatsuki Fujimoto is
As an author, Tatsuki Fujimoto is severely underrated and often does not get the recognition he deserves.
At first glance, the story comes across as the standard story of a teenage boy but if you dive deep into it, you can find references to old folklore, Japanese mythology, and many other things that would make your mind boggle.
The last few chapters of the series are based around Denji’s perfect life, where he finally gets free from the curse of Chainsaw Man and lives with Nayuta, who serves as a family for him.
However, things took a turn for the worse as his house was set on fire, and all the pets inside, which Nayuta and Denji were fostering, were killed, which made Denji go hysterical.
He turns into Chainsaw Man, starts laughing, and realizes his true source of happiness is to be a titular hero rather than living an everyday life.
From this point, we can expect Denji to return to his old self, where he seeks glory and saves lives, but it would be interesting to see what route Nayuta takes. You can read the series on Manga Plus.
