It’s been a hot minute since the first season of Chainsaw Man wrapped up, but fans are keeping the series alive while its anime freezes behind the scenes. Of course, that means everything from cosplay tributes to fan-fiction shorts have taken over social media. And now, a bit of fan art is going viral thanks to an Adventure Time artist.
The art comes from Instagram courtesy of Ian Jones-Quartey, as you can see below. The artist, who is best known for his work on Adventure Time, decided after watching the anime that it was time to switch the series with Chainsaw Man. The anime version of Makima seems to have reminded Jones-Quartey of someone we all know, and it would be none other than Princess Bubblegum.
“I heard the creator of [Chainsaw Man] is a fan of Adventure Time and it just fits so well,” the artist described the art. Of course, fans of the franchises know that Jones-Quartey is spot on. Makima may be the internet’s new obsession, but Princess Bubblegum had netizens by their throats first.
Of course, both of these female characters are known for their wild antics, and their authority often leads them to power trips. There is also the fact that both women are influential in running their respective shows. Princess Bubblegum as Finn wrapped around her finger, just like Makima does with Denji. But where the heroine of Adventure Time means well, the same cannot be said about Makaima.
The manga made it clear that Makima has a tight grip on Denji and the hero is obsessed with her. Their relationship is anything but healthy in its current state, and readers know that things will get worse before they get better for the pair. And when the fandom hits, all we can do is show Denji on Adventure Time and hope he learns some lessons about self-worth.
