The following reveals the content for the Chainsaw Man Chapter 127 “Save the Asa” manga by Tatsuki Fujimoto, Amanda Haley, and Sabrina Heep, available in English via Viz Media, and discusses suicide.
It turns out that when Chainsaw Man’s Denji uses his two brain cells, he can dispense some sage wisdom.
In Chapter 127, “Save Asa”, the Fallen Devil tempts Asa to let go and fall. Trapped in despair and guilt over her perceived role in the deaths of loved ones, Asa doesn’t want to live anymore. Although Denji manages to catch Asa before she hits the ground, she is adamant in her desire to end her life. In a surprising display of adult empathy, Denji tells her he knows how she feels, summarizing his own life fully: “Just when life seemed so wonderful. […] some bad thing suddenly happened and ruined it all.” Almost immediately, he confessed that the only way to grit his teeth and eat that “burger” was to focus on one goal, one raw, raw target. and lots of Denji.
Fans reading this chapter can’t help but laugh in disbelief. Touched by his emotional speech, Twitter user rosie (@/asakurakii) joked that Denji should focus on being a motivational speaker if his Chainsaw Man career fails. . Another Chainsaw Man fan expressed pride in Denji’s maturity in pulling Asa out of the pit of grief by “telling her to move forward and not focus too much on the negatives. “
Denji’s statement is helped by distracting Asa
While the majority of fans enjoyed this chapter, some fans were unhappy with Denji’s vulgar statement, feeling as if it took Asa’s attention, ruined the tone of another chapter, and just proves how much Denji has grown as a character. Others argued that Denji’s irrational goals helped save Asa. By collecting her as thoroughly as possible, Asa will no longer think about all the reasons why she doesn’t want to live.
Although Chainsaw Man is known for its vulgar humor and can upset some readers, mangaka Tatsuki Fujimoto has also been careful to balance it with deep explorations of human emotion, making it became one of the best selling manga. Season 2 begins on Shōnen Jump+ in July 2022 and introduces Asa Mitaka as the protagonist, a young girl with a rather unusual partner in Demons of War. The manga was adapted into an anime with MAPPA directing production in October 2022.
The next chapter of Chainsaw Man will premiere on Viz Media and Manga Plus on April 25.
