Did they just slap Stuffed Inthe Fridge right in the face....in a manga?

Didn't expect that. Not at all.

I did. But I also expected Fujimoto to expect that, and thus play it straight instead. But it appears Fujimoto expected that we would expect the unexpected, and threw in the twist.

…Yeah, that's better. tongue Though I kinda wished Denji would be able to connect with a normal girl as a contrast to devils of all sorts.

For extra points, though, it's not every day that you see the phrase "I'll protect you and make you happy" said by the girl to the guy.

Also… thanks for the color page, Fujimoto. [tup] [awesome]

PS: Can't wait to see this chapter in anime. Reze's voice actress is gonna have fun. tongue

That color page is something one would usually see in an ecchi. tongue

It's funny because the rough artstyle would make you think the girls can't be sexy. But oh boy.

Anyway, I wonder if Makima would use that splatter spell to kill Denji if he actually chose to elope?

That's true.

It's like Fujimoto took everything about regular Shonen and just said, lets do the exact opposite of that.

The chapter on Mangastream has a translation of the Russian part, though I couldn't tell you how accurate it is. Seems to be some kind of song.

Specifically one the chapter's named after.

It amuses me that Denji specifies that "tried to kill me" is a hard pass, given that he's gravitated to the most coolly homicidal ladies around.

Hey, Reze might be a possible KGB assassin and Makema is a walking force of nature, but they haven't tried to kill him. Big points for that.

New chapter.

Reze is Bomb Devil, and tries to kill Denji, because she realised Denji likes someone else beside her. Beam rescued Denji, but Rese goes after them.

So... yeah.

And for a second I thought Denji was finally getting a normal kiss… Better luck next time. [lol]

Kinda disappointed that Reze is a devil though. A Badass Normal would have been a welcome addition.

Well, that escalated quickly. o_o

  • Well, I guess we can confirm that she's a bombshell.
  • Beam to the rescue, I knew he was following them.
  • Agree that it's a little sad she isn't a Badass Normal, but on the other hand her Devil design is hella cool. Yandere Russian Bombshell is going to get her man.

Oh, and I guess she's now out by Denji's criteria (which were "female" and "hasn't tried to kill me"). Too bad.

It's interesting how Denji isn't completely unique, and others like him keep showing up. Obviously it isn't an easy/normal thing, since otherwise I'd imagine the Bureau would want agents like him instead of people that are just Contracted with a captured Devil.

But besides Denji, all the others so far have been working for the Gun Devil. Bets the Gun Devil itself is a similar being? wild mass guess

  • Denji = heart
  • Katana = right hand
  • Reze = head

Interesting theory you got there @harostar

Anyways, on the manga... I need to catch up like seriously given I took a hiatus due to the mangarock fiasco.

Read Chainsaw Man. It's good! Managing to finish my own story for Halloween yay!!!

And the plot thickens:

  • Beam is terrified, but willingly to die to protect "Master Chainsaw".
  • Some random freelance hunters distract Reze, and Beam manages to escape.
  • Aki training with some guys from the 2nd Division, who want him to rejoin them. Angel is jealous that he gets to die in the next 5 years, because living is too much work.
  • Beam arrives at the training facility, and warns Aki that Bomb is coming. He slips up and reveals that Bomb is Gun's partner. Aki presses for more information, but Beam says he'll be killed and promised Makima...
  • Reze shows up, claiming to be chased by a devil. No one falls for it, and Aki's friend from the 2nd mentions that she looks familiar. Reze prepares to transform again.

Huh… Why would Makima forbid Beam to reveal crucial information about the Gun Devil?

And damn, Reze's power seems broken as fuck.

Well, I mean.....she's Bomb. I've seen it pointed out elsewhere that her devil-head is based on Fatman, so it makes sense she's so powerful.

[up][up][up]Not really surprised by the Makima thing, since at this point I'd find it weirder if she wasn't doing a bunch of shady-ass schemes in the background. Girl doesn't even let her own people know what devil she's contracted with.
