In an interview back in 2017 with the author of Blade of the Immortal, Tatsuki Fujimoto opened up about his attraction for irrational and dominant women who are in “higher positions than men.”

“I also like domineering and irrational women. In college, there was a girl who was mean to me, and then, one day at school, my bicycle had fallen over. I was wondering what happened when she said, ‘I knocked your bike over, ha ha ha!’ I was so happy.”

A femme fatale is a sub-genre where the characters in question are mysterious, beautiful, and seductive women who can often woo men with their killer charms. This usually means trouble for the men. However, for Fujimoto, he considers them an archetype of literature and art.

A Femme Fatale, in simpler terms, can be described as a woman having authority over a man because of her enchantress and seductive personality. These characters are primarily villainous and morally ambiguous.

An excellent example of this is Makima from Chainsaw Man. Fujimoto shared how he adores the idea of making a manga around such a character who destroys everything along her way. Some fans also speculated that he might be planning for a spin-off manga for Makima, but everything is a grain of salt until official announcements are made.
