Chainsaw Man and Jujutsu Kaisen are two of the most popular manga series currently, with more than 50 million copies sold each. The authors of these two series are famous for taking inspiration from each other to create. Recent chapters of Chainsaw Man has shown that once again.
In chapter 144 of the manga Chainsaw Man , featured many characters from season 1 of the series, and some returned from death. Among them, there is a character who has attracted everyone’s attention. This character is a demon who took over the mind of a corpse as a last resort for its survival.
What’s interesting is that this demon reminds fans of a character in Jujutsu Kaisen – Nobara Kugisaki. The two are not only similar in appearance but also in the weapons they use.
Nobara was last seen in chapter 124 of the manga Jujutsu Kaisen where she presumably lost her life, but the author never made that clear. Nobara has not appeared in the manga since.
Looks like the author Fujimoto-sensei belong to Chainsaw Man was tired of waiting for his fate Nobara so decided to introduce a character with a similar appearance Nobara in Chainsaw Man .
Below are the similarities between Nobara in Jujutsu Kaisen and the new devil of Chainsaw Man :
1) Eye and head injuries
In chapter 124, the Shibuya Incident storyline in Jujutsu Kaisen, Nobara suffered defeat at his hands Mahito , resulting in the loss of an eye and a severe head injury. Since that chapter, not once has she been mentioned in the series, despite the manga’s Jujutsu Kaisen has now exceeded 200 chapters.
Now, the new devil is in Chainsaw Man share the same characteristics of losing eyes and having head injuries.
2) The weapons used are nails and hammers
Nobara Kugisaki is a magician in Jujutsu Kaisen uses his techniques with the help of hammers and nails.
New demon of Chainsaw Man introduced in chapter 124 also has similar tools in his arsenal. Several nails are embedded in the demon’s head and it smashes its enemies with the help of hammers in each hand.
Apparently, the inspiration created the demon within Chainsaw Man taken from Nobara in Jujutsu Kaisen . The costumes of these two characters are also somewhat similar.
As soon as the new chapter of Chainsaw Man was released, fans immediately noticed the similarities between these two characters. One Twitter user also pointed out that the author Chainsaw Man had previously sketched an illustration Nobara suggesting this may have been his favorite character Fujimoto.
