Asa’s Relationship With Denji

Asa Mitaka is the primary character in the Academy Saga. As a high school student, she was possessed by Yoru, the War Devil, and thus became the embodiment of the War Fiend. However, she is a unique example of a living Fiend host, as she maintains her human identity when Yoru grants her control. When Denji finally has the opportunity to attend school, Asa is one of his classmates.

Asa was initially completely against Denji. One of the reasons she decided to ask him out was because she didn’t like him. It turns out that Asa’s feelings are more nuanced than Asa’s first thought because it seems like their time together inside the aquarium has brought them closer.

But it appears that Denji’s luck may have changed significantly since meeting his new love interest. Even though Denji is unsure of how to express his feelings, Asa seems to represent a significant change in his romantic life. Although she also has some ulterior motives, Denji himself feels that Asa has done something different.
