The narrative of Chainsaw Man focuses on Denji, a young man who lives in abject poverty and makes a deal with a devil in the form of a dog named Pochita. In exchange for Denji’s soul, Pochita fuses with Denji and bestows upon him the ability to transform various parts of his body into chainsaws. In the end, Denji becomes a member of the Public Safety Devil Hunters, which is a branch of the government agency that is dedicated to combating demons whenever they pose a danger to the globe.

Chapter 98 of Chainsaw Man
Chapter 98 of Tatsuki Fujimoto’s popular shonen manga has been published via VIZ Media’s Manga Plus service. The new chapter is the first entry in the series since the story’s first arc, the Public Safety Arc, came to an end in December 2020. The chapter also marks the series’ move from being published in the Weekly Shonen Jump print magazine to being issued via the digital-only Shonen Jump+ platform. Keeping consistent with the series’ propensity for confounding expectations, the new chapter largely focusses on a new character, the anti-social schoolgirl Asa Mitaka, while Part 1’s protagonist, Denji/Chainsaw Man, is referenced but not seen.
The initial response to the prologue for Chainsaw Man’s second arc appears to be generally positive. Many fans on social media have stated their interest in learning more about Mitaka and also professed their love for Bucky, the pun-spouting Chicken Devil that is also introduced in the new chapter. This indicates that initial reactions to the prologue are positive.
The first story arc of Chainsaw Man focuses on a young man called Denji who lives in an alternative reality where human civilization has evolved side-by-side with demons, a race of creatures representing the fears of mankind. Denji’s life was the catalyst for the events of the first story arc. After being brutally killed by the gangsters he was working for, Denji strikes a bargain with his pet chainsaw demon, Pochita; in addition to granting him a second shot at life, the agreement also enables him to morph into a half-human, half-demon monster with chainsaws for limbs and a head.
Soon after he is reborn, he is recruited into the Public Safety Devil Hunters, which is a government organization that wants to use his power to hunt down other devils who have become a threat to the populace. They want him to use his power to track down other devils who have become a threat to the populace.
Part 2 continues the series’ predilection for ultra-violence, a quality that the future anime adaptation has vowed to keep. Despite the fact that the new chapter focuses on a different character, Part 2 still maintains the series’ tendency for ultra-violence. At this year’s Anime Expo, the creators of the Chainsaw Man anime made a commitment not to tone down the very graphic violence of the original source material. The long-awaited adaptation is now being worked on by the animation firm MAPPA, which is also responsible for producing Jujutsu Kaisen and Attack on Titan: The Final Season. Although a date for the premiere of the anime has not yet been disclosed, Crunchyroll has already stated that it would provide streaming services for the series whenever it begins airing.
